Intouchable (Untouchable) – Subtitled

22 Apr 2018
  • Film Society

Intouchable (Untouchable) – Subtitled

This award-winning French comedy drama is based on the true story of a wealthy quadriplegic (François Cluzet) and his down-and- out personal aide (Omar Sy). Like most odd-couple stories, the drama includes lessons about friendship being deeper than the superficial differences that divide people, in this case, race, wealth, education, and physical ability. It gives the audience permission to laugh with, not at, people with disabilities, and see their lives as they have never seen them before. Directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, the film received several award nominations. In France, the film won the César Award for Best Actor for Omar Sy, the first French-African actor to receive this honour. On 20 March 2012, Untouchable became the highest-grossing movie in a language other than English breaking the previous record set by the Japanese film Spirited Away (also shown by BSEFS). It also broke the record for the highest-grossing French film. 

Doors and bar open at 6.15pm. Film starts at 7pm

Le Grand Bleu (The Big Blue)

A captivating film known for its beautiful cinematography of uniquely surreal quality and directed by Luc Besson, the film is a heavily fictionalized and dramatized story of the friendship and sporting rivalry between two leading contemporary champion free divers in the 20th century. The main characters are Jacques Mayol (played by Jean-Marc Barr) and Enzo Maiorca – renamed to “Enzo Molinari” (played by Jean Reno), and involves Mayol’s fictionalized relationship with his girlfriend Johana Baker (Rosanna Arquette). Jacques feels an unusual bond with the sea and Enzo is in it for the sheer danger involved. Featuring gorgeous underwater photography and spectacular location shooting in the French Antibes, the Greek islands, Peru, and Taormina in Sicily, the film was nominated for several César Awards, winning two for Best Music written for a film (Éric Serra), and Best Sound.

The Sea Hawk

This classic swashbuckling Errol Flynn movie was directed by Michael Curtiz. In the 1580s, Captain Geoffrey Thorpe (Errol Flynn) is the boldest of Sea Hawks – the name given to the bold privateers who prowl the oceans taking Spanish ships and treasure on behalf of the British Crown. When he captures the vessel carrying ambassador Don Jose Alvarez de Cordoba (Claude Rains), the dashing captain falls for his niece, the beautiful Dona Maria (Brenda Marshall). At the time The Sea Hawk boasted the most opulent production values of a Warner Bros period film to date, and boasts an excellent adventure film score by Erich Wolfgang Kongold.

Doors and bar open at 6.15pm. Film starts at 7pm
