the innocent

Louis Garrel’s latest film will open the Lumière festival this Saturday, October 15, but it will be released in theaters this Wednesday. The story: a man, Abel, learns that his sixty-year-old mother is going to marry a man in prison. He will do everything to protect his mother, but meeting his future stepfather risks changing the situation. A comedy that brings together Louis Garrel, Roschdy Zem, Anouk Grinberg and Noémie Merlant.

Le Petit Nicolas – What are we waiting for to be happy?

What better tribute to Jean-Jacques Sempé, who left us this summer, than to once again adapt the adventures of Petit Nicolas on the big screen. The latter had the opportunity to see the film before his death and said he was delighted with this cartoon directed by Amandine Fredon and Benjamin Massoubre. For the first time we go back to the genesis of the little boy invented by Sempé and Goscinny. Between Montmartre and Saint-Germain-des-Prés the spectator discovers the beginnings of this laughing, mischievous, brawling character. The latter will himself question his creators with all the humor that we know him. This is an opportunity to discover the career, childhood and friendship that binds the two authors of our hero!

Retrospective Margarethe Von Trotta

It had been 40 years since we could see this film. Restored in 4K, Rose Luxemburg by Margarethe Von Trotta hits theaters this week. To celebrate this event, the Champo – Espace Jacques Tati is organizing a retrospective of this director of new German cinema from the 1960s and 1970s. For the occasion, we will be able to see his first two films, which are Katharina Blum’s Lost Honor and The Second Awakening by Christa Klages. There will also be his two greatest masterpieces which are The Years of Leadsgolden lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1981, and Rose Luxemburg.
