Dalle to rekin­dle a mil­lion old flames

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

This year’s French Film Fes­ti­val at the Ir­ish Film In­sti­tute fea­tures a more than usu­ally starry list of at­ten­dees. Thoughts will turn to a mil­lion stu­dent posters of the 1980s when Béa­trice Dalle turns up for Bye Bye Blondie, her new pic­ture, and for a dis­in­ter­ment of the iconic Betty Blue. Fur­ther dazzle comes with the ar­rival of the great Juliet Binoche for Sylvie Tes­tud’s An­other Woman’s Life.

The fes­ti­val also finds space for a screening of the lat­est from Alain Res­nais, You Ain’t seen Nothin’ Yet, and Michael Haneke’s un­touch­able Amour, win­ner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes this year. That film was co-pro­duced by Les Films du Losange, founded in 1962 by Bar­bet Schroeder and Éric Rohmer, and the fes­ti­val will be cel­e­brat­ing 50 years of that in­no­va­tive com­pany. ifi.ie/french­fest
