    Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the upcoming release of Cédric Klapisch’s CHINESE PUZZLE, the New York-set third installment in Mr. Klapisch’s popular trilogy, scheduled to open in New York (Lincoln Plaza) and Los Angeles on Friday, May 16 followed by a national roll out.

    Years after L'Auberge Espagnole  and Russian Dolls, Xavier (Romain Duris)’s life is still a mess. His ex-wife Wendy (Kelly Reilly) has left him in Paris and taken their kids to New York. Always up for an adventure, broken-hearted Xavier follows them to the city and begins to piece together a life for himself amidst the cheerful chaos of downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. An imminent deadline for his new novel, the realities of immigration, his ex girl-friend, Martine (Audrey Tautou) and best friend Isabelle (Cécile de France,) add to the vibrant jumble in this comically delightful conclusion to Cédric Klapisch’s trilogy. Now 40 years-old, the characters have left a bit of their naiveté and carefree attitude behi

    Adopt Films is proud to announce the release of VIOLETTE, Martin Provost's (Séraphine, winner of 7 César Awards) drama spanning 20 years in the complex life and work of trailblazing French feminist author Violette Leduc (Emmanuelle Devos, Kings & Queen, in a searing performance) and her relationship with the legendary Simone de Beauvoir (Sandrine Kiberlain).  VIOLETTE is scheduled to open in NY on Friday, June 13 at Lincoln Plaza Cinema and Angelika Film Center, followed by a national release.

    Violette Leduc, born out of wedlock at the beginning of the 20th century, encountered Simone de Beauvoir in the post-WWII years in St-Germain-des-Prés. The intense relationship between the two women would last their entire lives, a relationship based on the quest for freedom through writing for Violette and for Simone, on the conviction that she held the fate of an extraordinary writer in her hands.

    Arthouse darling Emmanuelle Devos won her first César Award for her performance as partially deaf Ca

    Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the release of writer-director Daniel Cohen’s genial buddy comedy set in the French upscale restaurant world, LE CHEF (Comme un Chef) starring Jean Reno and Michaël Youn. LE CHEF is scheduled to open in the US on June 20 in New York at The Paris Theatre followed by a national roll out.

    Star chef Alexandre Lagarde (Jean Reno) is struggling to keep his multi-starred restaurant, Cargo Lagarde, afloat and is in serious conflict with its new CEO/owner Stanislas Matter (Julien Boisselier) who wants to replace him with a young trendy chef who specializes in the latest craze of molecular gastronomy.  Running out of ideas for his new menu Lagarde crosses paths with Jacky Bonnot (comedian and TV personality Michaël Youn, Around the World in 80 Days), an impassioned new chef with the right intentions who keeps getting fired from restaurants.  Working with the legendary Lagarde could be the one thing to turn Bonnot's life around but only if he can get Lagarde

    The Weinstein Company is proud to announce the release of  YVES SAINT LAURENT, directed by Jalil Lespert, and starring Pierre Niney as the legendary fashion designer.  The young design genius who left French Algeria as a teenager to work for Christian Dior, took over the House of Dior at age 21 in January 1958. He and his partner, Pierre Bergé, famously launched their own fashion label in 1962, and the rest is history.   YVES SAINT LAURENT is scheduled to open in New York and Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 25 followed by engagements nationwide.

    Brilliantly capturing YSL’s shyness, charm, and artistic bravado, Pierre Niney morphs into the role without so much as a wrinkle. Drawing upon a vast archive of original material (made available to the production by the 83-year-old Pierre Bergé -- 5,000 dresses, 15,000 accessories, and 35,000 sketches), director Jalil Lespert puts the designer’s groundbreaking work on screen. Still gloriously beautiful are his Mondrian dresses, tuxedos for wome

    If you’re looking for something a little different this summer, or searching for artwork to remind you that beauty and elegance need not swelter in the heat, you’ll want to visit The French Perspective: Contemporary Art from France at Agora Gallery.


    When artists pour extensive care into their work, the combination of imagination and painstaking attention to detail creates an overwhelming energy tangible to the viewer. Where some works are more ethereal, others are firmly tethered to reality, and others fall between. Yet, each work possesses an intuitive, visceral appeal as mind meets matter so powerfully.

  • Description:

    Ballet des Amériques is pleased to announce its 2014 Summer Intensive program. Summer intensives have a long tradition in the world of dance - bridging the gap between the spring and fall semesters - but also fulfilling a complementary role with respect to the regular school curriculum: Largely free from academic obligations, students are able to concentrate on dance and make leaps of progress in training, iron out weaknesses, and consolidate what was achieved during the academic year. Quite importantly, the warmth of the summer months makes for greatly increased flexibility, which, when intensely exercised, can propel students to a higher level. Please consult the schedule below. 

    Summer Intensive 1 (3-week program; July 7 - July 25)
    Elementary - Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM
    Intermediate - Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM

    Summer Intensive 2 (3-week program; August 4 - August 22)

    Drafthouse Films is proud to announce the release of Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)’s  MOOD INDIGO, starring Romain Duris (Chinese Puzzle, The Beat that My Heart Skipped) and Audrey Tautou (Amélie, Coco Before Chanel), set in a charmingly surreal Paris, which won a 2014 César for Best Production Design. The director’s cut for American audiences is scheduled to open in New York (at Sunshine Cinema) and Los Angeles on Friday, July 18 followed by a national roll out.

    Eminently inventive Michel Gondry finds an ideal counterpart in Boris Vian, whose novel provides the foundation for this visionary love story. Romain Duris plays wealthy bachelor Colin, whose hobbies include developing his pianocktail (a cocktail-making piano) and devouring otherworldly dishes prepared by his trusty chef Nicolas (Omar Sy, The Untouchables).  When Colin learns that his best friend Chick (Gad Elmaleh, The Valet), a fellow acolyte of the philosopher Jean-Sol Partre, has a new American girlf
