Looking for something fun to do one upcoming rainy summer night? TheLUXURIAN recommends getting your French fix—mais bien sûr—with the Chicago French Film Festival.
Running from July 22—28, head to the storied Music Box theatre for a selection of new French Cinema plus a tribute to Jean-Pierre Melville. In Paris, Love, Cut (a film by Arnaud Viard), Arnaud is a movie director and the typical Parisian guy: charming, distracted, unsettled. As he struggles to convince bankers and producers to invest in his sophomore movie, his fiancée asks him to commit more to their relationship. Pitched somewhere between the sardonic humor of Woody Allen and the wry tenderness of Nanni Moretti, Arnaud Viard’s new film uses comedy and romance to depict a man’s crusade to understand his very personal feelings about love and life.
So get your French on, and Vive le Cinema!
