LITTLE WHITE LIES
Academy Award-winner Marion Cotillard leads a fabulous cast in Guillaume
Canet's sparkling follow-up to his international box-office hit Tell No One.

Every year, Max, a successful restaurant owner, and Véro, his eco-friendly wife
invite a merry group of friends to their beautiful beach house to celebrate An-
toine's birthday and kick-start the vacation. But, this year, before they all leave
Paris, their buddy Ludo is hurt in a serious accident, which sets off a dramatic
chain of reactions and emotional responses. The eagerly anticipated vaca-
tion leads each of the protagonists to raise the little veils that for years they
have draped over what bothers and upsets them. Pretences become in-
creasingly hard to keep up. Until the moment when the truth finally catches
up with them all...

One of the most successful French movies of recent years, Tell No One gros-
sed $6.2 m in the US, scored more than 3 million admissions in France and won
César Awards for its writer-director Guillaume Canet and star François Cluzet.
They now join forces for Canet's third film Little White Lies, which showcases the
talent of a superb ensemble cast featuring the Oscar-winning glamour of
Marion Cotillard (Public Enemies, La Vie en Rose), leading Gallic heart-throbs,

THE BIG PICTURE
Adapted from Douglas Kennedy's international bestseller, The Big Picture stars
Romain Duris, Niels Arestrup, Marina Foïs and Catherine Deneuve.

Paul Exben is a success story - partner in one of Paris's most exclusive law firms,
big salary, big house, glamorous wife and two sons straight out of a Gap ca-
talogue. But when he finds out that Sarah, his wife, is cheating on him with
Greg Kremer, a local photographer, a rush of blood provokes Paul into a fatal
error. Standing over the corpse of his wife's lover, Paul knows that his perfect
life has gone for good. But by assuming the dead man's identity and fleeing
for an isolated part of former Yugoslavia on the beautiful Adriatic coast, Paul
gets another shot at being himself and, at last, seeing the big picture.

Currently shooting in Paris, Brittany and Montenegro, The Big Picture stars
Romain Duris (The Beat That My Heart Skipped) as Paul, the hotshot lawyer
who flees a fatal accident to protect his sons and by chance becomes the
man he always wanted to be. Catherine Deneuve (A Christmas Tale) and Ma-
rina Foïs (Change of Plans) co-star. Written and directed by Eric Lartigau

A MONSTER IN PARIS


From the director of Shark Tale, A Monster In Paris combines suspense,
romance and adventure with superb animation in a movie with uni-
versal appeal.

Paris,1910. Emile, a shy movie projectionist, and Raoul, a colorful in-
ventor, find themselves embarked on the hunt for a monster terrorizing
citizens. They join forces with Lucille, the big-hearted star of the Bird of
Paradise cabaret, an eccentric scientist and his irascible monkey to
save the monster – who turns out to be an outsized but harmless flea –
from the city's ruthlessly ambitious police chief.

One of Dreamworks Animation’s finest directors, Bibo Bergeron (Shark
Tale, The Road To Eldorado) returns to his homeland with a supra-in-
ventive project, whose quality and offbeat charm instantly evoke Ra-
tatouille. With its exceptional voice-cast, featuring iconic star Vanessa
Paradis, A Monster In Paris invites audiences to an enthralling world of
adventure and fantasy.

22 BULLETS
Jean Reno stars as a gangster who defies death to make a new life for himself in
Richard Berry's thrilling adaptation of Franz-Olivier Giesbert's bestselling novel.

After a long, brutal and successful career in the Marseille mafia, Charly Matteï has
gone straight. For three years, he has lived a quiet life devoted to his wife and two
young children. Then, one winter morning, he is left for dead on the docks of the old
port with 22 bullets in his body. Somehow he survives. And goes looking for Tony Zac-
chia, the only man who would dare to try to kill him. Zacchia made just one mistake:
he failed.

22 bullets is a fictional story based on real-life events that took place in Marseille, the
Mediterranean city with a long connection to the mob. On its mean streets today,
there is no room for "men of honor". The bullet rules. Only one actor in France has the
charisma to play Charly Matteï, the godfather who leaves a world he no longer un-
derstands to become a regular citizen. After The Big Blue, The Professional and Crim-
son Rivers, Jean Reno has found another role equal to his unique talents and aura.
Kad Merad (Paris 36, Welcome To The Sticks), the most sought after actor of his ge-
neration, co-stars as Charly's unrepentant longtime brother in blood, Tony Zacchia.
The fine supporting cast includes actor-director Richard Berry (The Valet, Crossfire),
Jean-Pierre Darroussin (A Very Long Engagement) and Marina Foïs (Change of
Plans).

France, present day. A smalltime conman passes himself as the boss as

PARIS ExPRESS
From multicultural Paris to designer Paris, Montmartre to the Champs-Elysées,
sleazy sidewalks to high-end galleries... Watch out! Sam the courier is a man on a
mission!

On his scooter, Sam (Michaël Youn) breaks every rule of the road to make good
on the "express delivery" promise of the courier service he works for. But however
hard he tries, Sam never gets a bonus from his boss, never beats his slicker col-
leagues and never gets past his Dad, a cop who books him every time. All Sam
has up is Nadia (Géraldine Nakache), and she will turn on him if he doesn't show
up for her sister's wedding. Trouble is, Sam has one more delivery to make and his
day has just gone from bad to worse...

After the huge success of the Taxi franchise, France has found another acciden-
tal hero in the shape of speedy Sam the delivery man who innocently scoots into
the heart of an art smuggling scam run by a shady organization called The Sphere.
On his trusty two-wheeler, Sam puts his life on the line to reel in a missing Rem-
brandt and keep his girl. Michaël Youn (Iznogoud, Around The World In 80 Days)
toplines in this street-smart comic adventure alongside Heroes star Jimmy Jean
Louis and two of France's hippest, sexiest young actresses, Géraldine Nakache
(Comme t'y es belle) and Catalina Denis (Go Fast).

ROSE & NOIR
(FASHION VICTIM)
A royal wedding, the Inquisition, outcasts, heretics and plotters make
for an explosive mix in this irreverent comedy written and directed by
Gérard Jugnot (The Chorus).


Paris 1577. King Henri III gives famous couturier Pic Saint Loup a crucial
diplomatic mission. He must go to Spain to make a magnificent gown
for the wedding of the King's nephew to the daughter of a Spanish
noble. The trouble is that the real creative brains behind Saint Loup's
outfit is his Moorish assistant, while his perfumer is a Marano Jew and his
hairdresser is out, loud and very proud. And Catholic Spain, in the grip
of the Inquisition, is no place for Arabs, Jews and homosexuals (Saint
Loup is anything but heterosexual). To make matters worse, his secre-
tary is an undercover Protestant plotting revenge for the St. Bartholo-
mew's Day massacre and the father of the bride turns out to be the
Chief Inquisitor of Cordoba...

ARTHUR AND THE
REVENGE OF MALTAZARD

Arthur (Freddie Highmore) is reunited with his beloved Princess Selenia
in the latest adventure adapted from Luc Besson's bestselling children's
books, but danger lurks on the horizon...

A spider deposits a grain of rice in Arthur's hand, with a message car-

trap set by the abominable Maltazard, who has resolved to take his
revenge...

Minimoys, reprises the combo of live-action, starring Freddie Highmore
(Charlie And The Chocolate Factory) and Mia Farrow (Be Kind Re-

novels

Maltazard traps Arthur in the Land of the Minimoys and travels in the opposite
direction into the humans' world, where he forces a plastic surgeon to stitch
him a human face and tricks his way into Arthur's grandparents' house. There
he searches for a phial containing the elixir Arthur needs to get back to his nor-
mal size!
When miniature Arthur, Selenia and Betameche finally reach the house, Mal-
tazard has the phial in his grasp. Time is running out for them. Now over two
meters tall, Maltazard assembles an army of giant mosquitoes in the nearby
forest.
Arthur enlists the help of the Queen Bee, whose magical honey is his only way
to grow back to full size. But will that be enough for him to win the war of the
two worlds?

Freddie Highmore (The Spiderwick Chronicles, Charlie and The Chocolate
Factory) and Golden Globe-winner Mia Farrow (Be Kind Rewind) once more
star in this magnificent combination of live action and superb animation that
fascinates and enthralls children and adults alike.

Venice 1763.
Writer Lorenzo da Ponte is leading a very loose life. Originally a priest,
his numerous affairs force him to be sent in exile in Vienna. Supported by his
friend and mentor Giacomo Casanova, da Ponte is introduced in Vienna to
King’s favorite composer Salieri, and a newcomer named Wolfgang Ama-
deus Mozart. Seeing here an opportunity to undermine Mozart’s ascension,
Salieri tricked Mozart into hiring this unknown libertine as his librettist. But da
Ponte’s own nature and sentimental wanderings in Vienna will nurture his ins-
piration and lead to one of Mozart’s most bold and powerful compositions :
Don Giovanni.

SISTER SMILE
(SOEUR SOURIRE)
Based on the true story of Jeannine Deckers, a nun whose song was once
even more successful than the Beatles and Elvis Presley

The end of the 1950s, on the outskirts of Brussels. Like the rest of the young ge-
neration of the time, Jeannine Deckers has a thirst for freedom and adven-
ture. There’s no question of her following the path her parents have chosen for
her – finding a husband and taking over the family bakery. She wants a dif-
ferent life. To move away, to meet other people. After toying with art studies,
she enters a convent. Jeannine finds out that being a Dominican nun is a dif-
ficult vocation. It requires giving up one’s passions, including music. But she’s
not prepared to do this. The other sisters don’t understand her, but with the
blessing of the Mother Superior, she sticks to her dream and writes a global
pop hit: Dominique.

For audiences around the world, Jeannine became “Sister Smile”, also known

as the Singing Nun. She was a worldwide sensation and sold millions of re-
cords, providing the only ever Belgian number-one hit in the U.S. charts. Her
success was compared to that of Elvis Presley. The film traces the unique and
deeply moving story of this young girl who never gave up.

sent-day sequences into a memorable voyage through her life, during which
she confronts the joy of creation and the pain of personal loss, death and
aging. It is a singular trip played out against the exciting context of the post-
war explosion of cultural expression in France. She knew everyone: her col-
leagues in the French New Wave, the Black Panthers in California and even
Jim Morrison, who would visit when in Paris. Idiosyncratic, engaging and dee-
ply moving, Les Plages d'Agnès is the autobiography of a magnificent artist
and a woman of vital curiosity.

BASED ON THE TRUE STORY OF SERAPHINE DE SENLIS,
Biopic of an unconventional artist

1912, in a little town North of Paris. Séraphine Louis, works as a maid for Ma-
dame Duphot, who rents an apartment to a German art critic and dealer,
Wilhelm Uhde, an enthusiastic advocate of modern and “primitive” artists. In
her spare time, Séraphine paints, with everything that comes to hand (wine,
mud, fruits & flowers mixture). When Wilhelm comes across a small painting
that she brought over a few days previously, he’s mesmerized, snaps it up and

insists that Séraphine show him the rest of her work. It is the beginning of a nur-
turing relationship which will get Séraphine’s work to be exposed all over the
world. But as Séraphine paints her most inspired canvas, the grace of her work
leads her into the realms of madness.
