We say bonjour once again to the IFI French Film Festival, which kicks off tonight with the Gala Opening film, Just a Sigh (Le Temps de l’aventure). Jérôme Bonnell’s latest film stars the wonderful stage and screen actress Emmanuelle Devos as Alix, an actress who encounters an English-speaking professor on her way to an audition. Our own Gabriel Byrne plays Douglas, the professor she meets who is on his way to a funeral. Their paths cross on a day that plays with destiny and how we can master it. The film is marked by the two central performances and promises to deliver a fine opening to this year’s festival.
The screening begins at 8pm.
Director Jérôme Bonnell and Emmanuelle Devos will be in attendance at the screening and will participate in a Q&A with David O Mahony of Access Cinema.
Just a Sigh is showing as part of the Carte Noire IFI French Film Festival (20th November – 1st December, 2013).
