59th LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (7th-18th October 2015) DAY 2
Every day (from October 7 to October 18) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening. Here is all the information you need about the best way to get tickets.
This films also screens on 9th and 12th October. Full details here.
Caroline (Isabelle Carré) arrives at a mountain village in the South of France for the funeral of her solitary, bohemian mother. But in this idyllic spot, no one has death on their mind – least of all local woman Pattie, who promptly regales Caroline with hair-raising tales of epic sexual exploits. Then a mysterious turn of events attracts the attentions of a gendarme with bizarre theories, some of them implicating an old friend of Maman’s (André Dussollier), who may possibly be a Nobel-winning novelist travelling incognito. The Larrieu brothers (A Real Man) offer a witty, eccentric, constantly surprising fable about desire, imagination and landscape, superbly cast (Sergi Lopez and Denis Lavant also feature), with a sharp, winning lead performance from Isabelle Carré and an outrageously funny title turn from Karin Viard as a woman with a no-holds-barred libido, and proud of it. Strange, mischievous and magical – the proverbial ‘Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy’.
Here (and above) is the trailer.
