CAFÉ DE FLORE

DIRECTOR: Jean-Marc Vallée - CANADA

Blending smooth electro beats with the retro sounds of big band strings and horns, the music sets the tone for a story about love in its many forms. The film opens in present-day Montreal, where Antoine, a successful DJ in his early ’40s, has not only a dream job and home but also two beautiful young daughters and the love of his life, Rose, by his side. Life is not as rosy for the occasionally foul-mouthed, working-class Frenchwoman Jacqueline who is raising her mentally challenged seven-year-old son alone in 1967 Paris. These two stories unspool side by side, bound together...

A CAT IN PARIS

DIRECTOR: Jean-Loup Felicioli, Alain Gagnol - FRANCE

An enchanting fable about looking past appearances and cultivating unlikely loyalties in times of need, A Cat in Paris turns the streets of Paris into a delicately animated watercolor study. Dino, a cat, lives a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, whose mother is a police detective; by night he sneaks out the window to work with Nico, a slinky cat burglar. Dino’s two worlds collide when he has to team up with Nico to save Zoe from a team of bumbling thieves plotting to steal the so-called Colossus of Nairobi. A humorous love letter to classic noir...

CIRKUS COLUMBIA

DIRECTOR: Danis Tanovic - BOSNIA

After living in exile in Germany for 20 years, Ditko returns to his hometown in Communist-free (1991) Yugoslavia to start a new life. He comes back in style: sexy girlfriend Azra, new Mercedes, loads of cash, and a precious cat named Bonny. But he also has revenge on his mind: his primary target is wife Lucija who failed to follow him to Germany when he was forced to flee. He kicks her out of her/their house while trying to reconnect with his now 20-year-old son, Martin, who is far more interested in Azra than in him. But soon war reaches...

CLOWN: THE MOVIE

DIRECTOR: Mikkel Nørgaard - DENMARK

Frank and Casper have a plan. A canoe trip—with tents and minimal personal hygiene—that the women won’t possibly want to go on. The trip’s agenda can then be to find as much sex as possible. But when Frank discovers that his girlfriend is pregnant and, doubting his capabilities as a father, hasn’t told him, he brilliantly takes her young nephew on the trip to bond and prove his parental capabilities. Based on a popular Danish television comedy, Clown was a massive commercial and critical hit in Denmark, a sort of ribald fusion of The Office and The Hangover. “This is...

CORPO CELESTE

DIRECTOR: Alice Rohrwacher - ITALY

After a decade in Switzerland, 13-year-old Marta moves back to her family’s impoverished hometown in Calabria in southern Italy. Although Marta was born there, the local customs seem strange to her, a feeling of dislocation and confusion that only increases after she enrolls in her local church’s confirmation class. Rohrwacher’s sensitive and perceptive debut feature ironically pits a young girl’s crisis of faith and adolescence against a community struggling for survival and the ancient traditions of the Catholic Church facing waning influence. “In Italy nowadays, there’s a feeling that people don’t ask themselves questions, and the idea of community is...
