Opening Night - 1st Film
2020 Ladj Ly France 104min MA15+ In French with English subtitles.
Ladj Ly's "Les Misérables" is haunted by the memory of the fall of 2005, when riots broke out in the suburbs of Paris (and other cities), riots which raged for three terrible weeks. The mostly North African immigrant population in these suburbs were protesting the constant police harassment as well as the tragic death of two kids, electrocuted while hiding from the police in a substation. "Les Misérables" takes place in 2018, but "2005" is never far from anyone's consciousness. - RogerEgert.com

La Belle Époque
2020 Nicolas Bedos France, Belgium 110min M In French, German w Eng. subs
RThe clichés of French film history are playfully explored in César Award-winning filmmaker Nicolas Bedos’ hilarious LA BELLE ÉPOQUE, which darts between present day and the wild, wonderful disco era of the 1970s in a whimsical, witty and romantic tale.
Victor (Auteuil), a 70-something tech-phobic cartoonist, is struggling both professionally and personally. His work is evaporating with the growing dominance of the Internet, and his wife, Marianne (Ardant), loathes him. Things take a turn when Victor meets Antoine (Guillaume Canet) whose company offers a unique theatrical service where customers are able to revisit memories and play out fantasies through carefully orchestrated re-enactments. Victor decides to relive the most memorable week of his existence, 40 years earlier, when he met the love of his life.
