Writer-director François Ozon (Swimming Pool, Under the Sand, , 8 Women, Potiche)’s deliciously twisted new film, IN THE HOUSE (Dans la Maison) starring Fabrice Luchini, Kristin Scott-Thomas, Emmanuelle Seigner and newcomer Ernst Umhauer is scheduled to open in the US on April 19 in New York (at Lincoln Plaza Cinema and Sunshine Cinema) and Los Angeles followed by a national release.
Francois Ozon's new film is the story of Claude (César nominee Ernst Umhauer,) a 16-year old boy who gradually insinuates himself into the house of a fellow high-school student, Rapha (Bastien Ughetto,) and writes about his schoolmate's family in essays that perversely blur the lines between reality and fiction, for his jaded literature teacher, Germain (Fabrice Luchini). Increasingly intrigued by this gifted and unusual student, Germain rediscovers his taste for teaching, but the boy’s intrusion sparks a series of uncontrollable events. Kristin Scott-Thomas plays Germain’s wife, Jeanne, a contemporary a

THE PAINTING (LE TABLEAU) opens 5/10 at the VILLAGE EAST CINEMA
Animation, Jean-Francois Laguionie, France, 2012, 78 mins

In this wryly inventive parable, a kingdom is divided into the three castes: the impeccably painted Alldunns who reside in a majestic palace; the Halfies who the Painter has left incomplete; and the untouchable Sketchies, simple charcoal outlines who are banished to the cursed forest. Chastised for her forbidden love for an Alldunn and shamed by her unadorned face, Halfie Claire runs away into the forest. Her beloved Ramo and best friend Lola journey after her, passing between the forbidden Death Flowers that guard the boundaries of the forest (in one of the film’s most radiantly gorgeous scenes), and arriving finally at the very edge of the painting – where they tumble through the canvas and into the Painter’s studio. The abandoned workspace is strewn with paintings, each containing its own animated world – and in a feast
