The painted Narcissus, attributed to Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio ca 1599, will be the focal image of french artist Francine LeClercq's installation, whereas the erring gaze of Narcissus, the visual echo reverberating between the illusionistic picture plane and the actual gallery setting, the existential reciprocity between the subject and object, form and content, …, are parallel notions and traits that LeClercq uses to investigate the modern context and premise within which a work may be produced, placed and perceived.
Narcissus, la nouvelle exposition de l'artiste française Francine LeClercq est à découvrir du 4 au 27 Octobre à la gallerie Soho20 à Chelsea. Cette installation tourne autour de l'oeuvre "Narcissus" attribuée à Caravaggio.

MPI Pictures is proud to announce the release of THE BIG PICTURE, Eric Lartigau’s French thriller adapted from Douglas Kennedy’s American novel, starring Romain Duris (The Beat That My Heart Skipped, Heartbreaker,) Marina Foïs, Neils Arestrup and Catherine Deneuve.

Greg’s unexpected death throws Paul’s life into chaos, and he makes a startling decision that pushes him into unknown territor

Writer-director Lorraine Lévy’s THE OTHER SON, is a moving and provocative tale – filmed in Israel and the West Bank - of two young men – one Israeli, the other Palestinian, who discover they were accidentally switched at birth, and the complex repercussions on themselves and their respective families.
Joseph (Jules Sitruk), an 18-year-old musician preparing to join the Israeli army for his mandatory military service, lives at home in a comfortable suburb of Tel Aviv with his parents, France-born physician Orith (Emmanuelle Devos) and Israel-born army commander Alon Silbers (Pascal Elbé). A blood test for Joseph’s military service reveals that he is not their biological son; during the Gulf War Joseph was evacuated from a clinic along with another baby; both were given back to the wrong families. While the Palestinian Joseph went to Tel Aviv with the Silbers, their actual Jewish son, Yacine (Medhi Dehbi) was brought to the West Bank by the Arab couple, Said (Khalifa Natour) and Leila (

“If there’s a more inspired contemporary physical comedian
—I don’t know of him.” —The New Yorker
What causes a chuckle? A giggle? A hearty laugh? Renowned actor from Théâtre Complicité and longtime collaborator of Peter Brook presents a hilarious comedy about comedy.
See what makes you laugh as Houben dissects the mechanics that trigger laughter: facial expressions, the idiosyncrasies of the body, the act of falling down, and the importance of timing.
A delightful performance, sure to please audiences of all ages!
