Tuesday Feb 28th - Comment c'est loin by Orelsan

"After ten years of doing nothing, Orel and Gringe are in their mid 30s and they struggle to finish their first rap album. Their texts are mostly sex jokes and booze stories and reflect the everyday life they have in a small town from France. The problem is that they never really finished a song and when their producers want to meet, they have to face a new challenge : finish their first song in the next 24h. Their old issues, the fear of failure, their alcoholic friends and annoying girlfriends won't help them to do so, or will they?"

See the trailer here.

Tuesday Mar 14th - La famille Bélier by Éric Lartigau

"A girl ,who lives with her deaf parents on a farm, discovers that she has the gift of singing. This movie was a huge popular success in France, in part due to, once again, a moving final scene."
