- Location: Lincoln Plaza Cinema and IFC Center
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. THE BIG PICTURE is scheduled to open in New York at Lincoln Plaza Cinema and IFC Center on Friday, October 12.
Paul Exben (Romain Duris in an intense perfomance) is a handsome and successful thirty-something Parisian corporate lawyer with a beautiful wife, two children, and a glimmering future as a partner in the firm he co-owns with his mentor, Anne (Catherine Deneuve.) But behind this deceptively perfect bourgeois façade lies a desire for creative fulfillment, a restless spirit who despises his conformist life and envies the freedom of his neighbor Greg (Eric Ruf,) an uncompromising photojournalist.
Greg’s unexpected death throws Paul’s life into chaos, and he makes a startling decision that pushes him into unknown territor

THE OTHER SON
- Oct 25, 2012 to Nov 30, 2012
- Location: The Sunshine Cinema + Clearview Cinemas
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 (

About the Artist
With fresh angles and edges, abstracted yet eloquently tangible, French artist Veronique Forest photographs spaces and subjects with a zealous enthusiasm for movement and emotion. Trained as a dancer, Forest takes inspiration from the multitudes of gestures and motions that exist within the space of a dancer’s stage. Passionate in her tenacious search for novel and original moments to capture on photographic film, the artist has steadfastly trained her eye and technique through practice behind the camera. Sharp lines form abstracted, graceful gesticulations, while a metallic palette imbues a sparkling brilliance in these works. “As a dancer and photographer, I look through my pho
