The Snows of Kilimanjaro (Les neiges du Kilimandjaro) (2011, 107 min, drama), by Robert Guédiguian
A union pensioner and his wife are robbed, but find that merely getting the assailants brought to justice is not enough for their consciences. The incident causes them to question everything about their lives – especially when they learn of the identity and motivation of one of their attackers. Have they become too comfortable, too middle class? Have they become exactly like those rich people they used to fight? (In French with English subtitles).
After our screening, we'll have Q&A moderated by Marc-Antoine Percier of the Alliance Française.
