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.
Abbas (Eriq Ebouaney) is an asylum seeker who has fled civil war in the Central African Republic to live in Paris where he works menial jobs to provide for his two young children. His brother Etienne has also made the crossing, but his wife was not so fortunate and Abbas’s dreams are haunted by her memory. Tentatively he begins a relationship with Carole (Sandrine Bonnaire), a matter-of-fact woman who offers him a home for his children, but Abbas must await the outcome of the asylum process before committing to his new life.
