Ciné/Feel : "Let The Girls Play"
| Alliance française du Manitoba
France, 1969. Paul Coutard, 30, is a sports journalist. He is charming, childish and a womaniser. When he is forced to plan the newspaper’s

CinéFeel : "Sans Maman"
| Alliance française du Manitoba
For the International Day of Francophonie, Alliance française du Manitoba is happy to screen "Sans Maman", by Marie-France
Guerrette, a franco-albertan filmmaker (who will be present for this occasion!)
On August 31, 1995, Guerrette's family life takes a dramatic turn. Mona, the mother, passes at 42 of the remnants of a breast cancer,
leaving behind a husband and two daughters, Mylène and Marie-France, to which she bequeaths a tape containing the testimony of her life.
How to recover, as a child, from the death of a parent? By recording her life, as well as her family's, Marie-France Guerrette welcomes us
into her mourning. The archives, sometimes flawed or imprecise and filled with emotions, build the history of her family. Marked with
authenticity, these interviews represent a freeing speech. Along her path, she discovers a heavy legacy: genetical cancer. This documentary
has had many positive points on Marie-France's life - ease the mourning process, incitate a call for action, as well as anchoring her in
the side of the livings.
In the mood for Melville is a documentary about the famous French filmmaker.
Jean-Pierre Melville, his 14 movies and his 25 years-long career is an international legend.
His artwork, filled with dark atmospheres, is pretty unique and has made him one of the leader of the neo-noir movement.
His influence has reached Asia, and some of the most renowned filmmakers there testify to depict the impact he has had on their art.
The movie will take place at the Alliance, on 934 Corydon. Entrance is free and open to all.
Ciné/Feel: Where the Poppies Grow
| 934 Corydon Avenue
Where do the images of the First World War that haunt our imagination come from ? To actually visualize the Great War, rather than just hearing about it, to portray it and bring it to life again : that is what today’s comic books capable of. By delving into archives and historical accounts, the comic book illustrators in this film take us back in time. They bring the First World War to life in our imagination : their drawings are more than just strokes of a pen. These major artists have made the Great War the main subject of their graphic narratives. In their company, we will try to trace the fragmented memory of 1914 – 1918 as a comic book chronicle. This film is in French with English subtitles and is being shown in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
To celebrate the start of the new school year, l'Alliance invites you to its first Kids' Movie Night! "A Cat in Paris" is an Oscar-nominated cartoon that tells the story of Dino, a cat who lives his life between two houses. By day, he lives with Zoé, the daughter of the police chief. By night he scales the roofs of Paris with Nico, a skilled burglar. Meanwhile at the police station, Zoé's mom needs to stop a jewel thief and keep her eyes on a piece of art coveted by the criminal Costa. The movie is rated PG but does have some moments that might be sad or scary, so it is recommended for kids over five. It is in French with English subtitles. The movie is free and so is the popcorn!
Friday June 8th 7pm | FREE Ciné/FEEL presents Patients (2017) by Grand Corps Malade & Mehdi Idir
"Patients" is the story of a rebirth, a chaotic journey of victories and defeats, tears and bursts of laughter, but above all encounters: we do not heal alone. "Patients" is one of these movies that will change your life and transport you far far away. It would be a mistake to not give a chance to an experience like that. The story is touching and beautiful, the tone is rough but funny as well. Acting is simply amazing and incredibly natural.
