IFI French Film Festival | Aurora
IFI French Film Festival presents
Belltable | Thur Nov 23rd | 8pm | €11
Belltable is proud, for the first time, to present highlights from the Irish Film Institute’s annual IFI French Film Festival. The festival, which will run over the course of three days in November, will showcase a diverse selection of the best of contemporary and classic French filmmaking. Featuring award winning dramas, sparkling comedies and thought provoking documentaries, the festival provides unparalleled access to one of the world’s great national cinemas. Last year’s festival programme at the IFI included 25 Irish premieres, providing audiences with exclusive, first-look access to a broad range of critically acclaimed films.
Aurora (Agnès Jaoui), middle-aged and separated, has lost her job and is living with her two twenty-something daughters, Lucie and Marina. When Marina tells her she is pregnant, both break down in tears – Marina because she is pregnant, Aurore as she is facing menopause and is about to become a grandmother. A chance meeting however with the love of her youth, Totoche, turns her life around. Revitalised, she discovers the solidarity of other women and that her innermost concerns are indeed universal. A comedy filled with hope, quick-witted dialogue, and funny and moving situations.
