Movie night!

Sip some delicious wine and watch some of the best movies of all languages! 

Our choice for the June French movie is Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot, (1953),  by Jacques Tati. 

This is a masterpiece of understated humour, sharp social satire and slapstick comedy. Tati is often compared with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton but with a quintessentially French twist. 

English subtitles – 1h45 – 

Our June world film is First Reformed (2017) by Paul Schrader.

An austere and stark film about a man going through a dramatic life crisis that brings him to the brink of the abyss.

Paul Schrader may be considered the most “European” of American directors and his book, “Transcendental Style in Film” is an in depth, comprehensive study of “slow” cinema as epitomised by Bresson, Ozu and Carl Dreyer.

First Reformed is not an easy film to watch but one that will elicit the viewer’s reflexion on our place in and relationship with our surrounding world.
