End of season and mini-review of "Le Havre"

We have reached the end of the Fall 2012 season. Thanks for your attendance, your input and your willingness to explore films with us.

We will return with the Winter 2013 season starting January 9, 2013. As soon as the season is set, you will be the first to know.

Merry Christmas!

Review of last week's film ("Le Havre", 3.5 stars)
Steven says: Director Aki Kaurismaki has a unique vision. His films evoke the past while set squarely in the present. The colors are deliberate, as is the acting. And yet, the story unfolds innocently and naturally, painting a great picture of French solidarity and community. He claims this is the first of a trilogy, and we look forward to more of his take on life and society.

Film Comment magazine published an an interview with Aki Kaurismaki that will help explain his vision for the film and answer some of the questions our viewers had.
