This should warm us up nicely for the Alliance Francais de Cairns French Film Festival coming to CoCA 1-3 May

We’ll have some details of that program coming soon.

4:30pm Sunday March 22
FRANCE (M) 100mins

The fabulous Isabelle Huppert leads an exceptional cast in the wonderfully charming and poignant new romance from writer-director Marc Fitoussi. 

Long married 50-somethings Brigitte (Huppert) and Xavier (Jean-Pierre Darroussin) are prize cattle breeders in regional France. Life is good, but the departure of their children from home has thrown Brigitte’s world into flux, as she finds herself locked into routine. She keeps hoping for something else, something more. 

A party held by students on the adjoining property accelerates this latent crisis and Brigitte impulsively sets off for Paris under the guise of a doctor’s appointment. The city immediately invigorates her, and when she meets a charming Danish gentleman (Michael Nyqvist, As It Is In Heaven, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), she impulsively allows herself to be flattered by his attentions... 

Beautifully performed by the central leads but also expertly supported by Marina Foïs, Audrey Dana, Pio Marmaï, Clément Métayer and Anaïs Demoustier, FOLIES BERGÈRE is a deliciously appealing fable about the choices of everyday life, and a reminder that it’s never too late to change. 


While cyclone NATHAN wanders around the Coral Sea it would be a good idea to check our website or twitter feed later in the week where any cancellation notices will appear.
