This month, all the tastes are represented in French cinema: whether you want to see the Academy Award nominated My Life as a Zucchini, the documentary Antartica: Ice and Sky, or you are tempted by the new François Ozon movie, there are plenty of opportunities to see French films in New England!

My Life as a Zucchini:

Now Playing in ME, RI, VT - see showtimes here

Zucchini is not a vegetable. He is a brave little boy. He believes that he's alone in the world when his mother dies. But in his new life in a home for children he meets Simon, Ahmed, Jujube, Alice, and Béatrice: they all have their stories to tell, and each story is as sad as it is tender. And then there's this girl, Camille. When you're ten years old, having a gang of pals, falling in love... there are things to discover and learn. And you may even be happy.

Personal Shopper:

Boston (Cambridge) - March 21-30 - Landmark Kendall Square
Maureen is a young American woman in Paris making her living as a personal shopper for Kyra, a celebrity. Also, Maureen may have the psychic ability to communicate with spirits, just like her twin brother, Lewis, who recently passed away. She soon starts receiving ambiguous messages coming from an unknown source.

Antartica: Ice and Sky:

Pittsfield - March 24-27 - Berkshire Museum
Ice and The Sky tells the story of a man who encountered his destiny, aged 23, in the Antarctic. The film will retrace his life‟s journey, from his first steps as a young glaciologist to the crowning moment of his glittering career - winning the Blue Planet Prize, the Nobel of environmental sciences.

The Son of Joseph:

Boston (Cambridge) - March 24 - March 30 - Landmark Kendall Square
Vincent, an adolescent, has been lovingly raised by his single mother, Marie, but she has always refused to tell him his father's name. Vincent discovers that he is a selfish and cynical Parisian publisher, Oscar Pormenor. Vincent plots his revenge, but his encounter with Joseph will change his life. With The Son of Joseph, American-born expatriate filmmaker Eugène Green tells a nativity story reboot that gently undermine French cultural pretensions.

Frantz:

Boston (Cambridge) - Opening on March 31 - Landmark Kendall Square
Set in Germany and France in the immediate aftermath of the First World War, Frantz tells the story of Anna, a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was killed during trench warfare. When French young man mysteriously shows up in her town, placing flowers on Frantz’s grave, his presence is met with resistance by the small community still reeling from Germany’s defeat. Yet Anna gradually gets closer to the handsome and melancholy young man, as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz, conjured up in evocative flashbacks.

He Even Has Your Eyes:

Belmont World Film - April 9, 7:30pm - Studio Cinema
In their mid-30s, Paul and Sali are happily married and the proud new owners of their own florist's store. The only cloud on their horizon is the long wait to adopt a child. Just when the couple had given up hope, the adoption agency calls with good news. Their best friends, legal eagle Prune and stoner Manu, rally to make sure the house is ready, so the adoption will be approved. Paul and Sali's new baby is six months old, he's beautiful, he's called Benjamin, he has lovely blue eyes… And he's white!
