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 English or in French with English subtitles
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

AUGUSTINE, the debut feature film from French writer-director Alice Winocour, nominated for a 2013 César for Best First Feature is based on the true story of Doctor Jean-Martin Charcot, the 19th century founder of modern neurology - whom Sigmund Freud studied under - and his star teenage patient, the beautiful illiterate kitchen maid Augustine, prone to spectacular and inexplicable fits of "hysteria."
After suffering a seizure which leaves her paralyzed on her right side,19-year-old Augustine (26 year-old recording artist-actress Soko in a break out performance), is shipped off to Paris' all female psychiatric hospital Pitié-Salpêtriere which specializes in detecting the then-fashionable ailment of 'hysteria'. Augustine captures the attention of Doctor Charcot (Vincent Lindon, Mademoiselle Chambon, Welcome) after a seizure which appears to give her intense physical pleasure. Intrigued, he begins using her as his principal subject, hypnotizing her in lecture halls as she displays h

Pears, Pastimes, and People: Caricatures by Daumier and His Contemporaries
Curated by Patricia Mainardi, Christina Lau, and the students of Professor Mainardi ’s New York University Romanticism seminar
La Maison Française of New York University is pleased to present “Pears, Pastimes, and People: Caricatures by Daumier and His Contemporaries,” a survey of French lithographic production in the second quarter of the nineteenth century. The twenty-six prints exhibited, many of them hand-colored, explore a range of themes ranging from political caricature to the popular practice of satirizing social “types,” including the revolutionary war imposter and the avaricious, heartless landlord.
The production of cheap and plentiful prints was made possible by the invention of lithography around 1800. The periodicals La Silhouette (1829-1830), La Caricature (1830-1835), and Le Charivari (1832-1937), founded
