Tuesday French Movie Night: Attila Marcel

Tuesday Movie Night !!!


Every Tuesday we organize a screening of a Francophone movie with English subtitles.






“Attila Marcel” by Sylvain Chomet (2013)


With: Guillaume Gomet, Anne Le Ny, Bernadette LaFont


Genre: Drama, Comedy


Paul is a sweet man-child, raised - and smothered - by his two eccentric aunts in Paris since the death of his parents when he was a toddler. Now thirty-three, he still does not speak. (He does express himself through colorful suits that would challenge any Wes Anderson character in nerd chic.) Paul's aunts have only one dream for him: to win piano competitions. Although Paul practices dutifully, he remains unfulfilled until he submits to the interventions of his upstairs neighbor. Suitably named after the novelist, Madame Proust offers Paul a concoction that unlocks repressed memories from his childhood and awakens the most delightful of fantasies.

Paul a la trentaine, il vit dans un appartement parisien avec ses tantes, deux vieilles aristocrates qui l’ont élevé depuis ses deux ans et rêvent de le voir devenir pianiste virtuose. Sa vie se résume à une routine quotidienne, entre le grand piano du salon et le cours de danse de ses tantes où il travaille en tant qu’accompagnateur. Isolé du monde extérieur, Paul a vieilli sans jamais avoir vécu... Jusqu’au jour où il rencontre Madame Proust, sa voisine du quatrième étage. Cette femme excentrique possède la recette d’une tisane aux herbes capable, grâce à la musique, de faire ressurgir les souvenirs les plus profondément enfouis. Avec elle, Paul va découvrir son histoire et trouver la clé pour vivre enfin sa vie...






The theater doors open 15 minutes before the movie starts. You are welcome to wait in the library if you arrive before then.
