COMING UP AT ACMI:
Screens 21 Sep-6 Oct
Director Lorraine Levy channels the cinema of Ernst Lubitsch, Frank Capra and Jacques Tati in her winning adaptation of Jules Romain’s mordantly funny play, written and performed on the Paris stage for the first time in the early 1920s. Updated to the early '50s, French superstar Omar Sy (Monsieur Chocolat) plays the titular Dr. Knock, a small-town medic whose ebullient charm conceals a painful past. Ana Girardot (Back to Burgundy) and Sabine Azema (A Sunday in the Country) feature in a talented supporting cast.
Screens 13 - 23 October
Fifty-year-old Aurore Tabort (Agnès Jaoui) is separated from her husband and newly unemployed when she discovers she is to become a grandmother. Filled with increasing anxiety that her best years might be behind her, Aurore bumps into the great love of her youth, Totoche (Thibault de Montalembert), and wonders if she should take the chance encounter as a sign of confidence in a new beginning.
