European Film Festival 2018 - 5th Edition

European Film Festival 2018
22 June - 1 July
JHB / PTA / CPT & NAF

 

The best of European cinema is back in South Africa for a 5th year! European Film Festival runs from 22 June to 1 July 2018 at Cinema Nouveau: Rosebank, Brooklyn and V&A Waterfront and will showcase ten films selected from Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom – a collection of diverse worldly stories.

 

France presents Un beau soleil intérieur (Let the sunshine in) directed by Claire Denis for this year edition. The film was awarded the SACD Prize at the Festival de Cannes 2017.

Cast: Juliette Binoche, Xavier Beauvois, Philippe Katerine
Genre: Drama/Romance
Duration: 96min | French with English Subtitles (2017)

Juliette Binoche plays Isabelle, a middle-aged woman navigating through the complexity of post-divorce "singlehood" in Paris. As she takes on lover after lover, the film moves through sharp transitions that reflect the state of loneliness and the subtle complexities of dating flawed middle-aged men. Through Isabelle's search for that which is meaningful, Denis crafts a film that brings us to the center of romantic restlessness.

A simple story of the search for love with all the broken pieces that come with it.
