Simone Signoret
Les diabloliques,
by Henri-Georges Clouzot (1955)
Wednesday November 16, 6:30 p.m.
With Sara Paretsky, author of best-selling crime
series V.I. Warshawski
In a masterpiece of the film noir genre as
surprising now as it was more than 50 years ago,
Simone Signoret plays the femme fatale to Vera
Clouzot’s ingénue. One of the top 25 horror
movies from Time magazine list. “Satisfying,
elegant and nasty” –– The Guardian.

Mélanie Laurent / Miou Miou
Le concert, by Radu Mihaileanu (2009)
Wednesday December 14, 6:30 p.m.
With Deborah Sobol, Director, Rush Hour Concert
& Make Music Chicago Chair
Impersonating a world famous orchestra isn’t
easy unless you have the brass to pull it off…
An uplifiting comedy about a band of misfists
rallying around a radiant Mélanie Laurent,
the up and coming French star also seen in
Tarrantino’s Inglourious Basterds. A high point of
this summer’s feel good movie is surely a superb
Tchaikovsky concerto –– Huffingtonpost.com

Juliette Binoche
Caché, by Michael Haneke (2005)
Wednesday, January 18 at 6:30 p.m.
“Le Slamdown” with Ron Falzone, from Columbia
College and 2 special guests…
Set in Paris sometime around yesterday, Caché
stars Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil as
professional intellectuals who come undone
after they begin receiving anonymous
packages containing drawings and surveillance
videotapes…. A film about the intersection of
the personal and the political, and that moment
when the past crashes headlong into the
present… –– Manohla Dargis, NY Times

Audrey Tautou
Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain,
by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (2001)
Wednesday, February 22 at 6:30 p.m.
With Jean-François Rochard, Deputy Cultural
Attaché, Consulate General of France in Chicago
One of the biggest hits ever in France and best-
loved French movie in America, Amélie is “a fable
filled with longing, with a heroine who constantly
flirts with failure… Tautou has the innocent
vitality of a silent-film star”–– NY Times

Je vais bien, ne t’en fais pas
Don’t Worry, I’m Fine • Philippe Lioret
(2006, 100 min.)
Saturday, February 11, 2012, 1:30 p.m.
Lili returns from an extended holiday in Spain to discover
her 19-year-old twin brother has left home over a
fight with their father. Hospitalized for anorexia over
worry for his welfare, and sensing he might be dead, a
postcard from her missing twin finally arrives assuring
her that he is well, but will never return. Philippe Lioret’s
delicate direction of the film adapted from a novel by
Olivier Adam subtly reveals some unexpected family
dysfunction. Nominated for five Césars, including best
film and best director, awards went to Mélanie Laurent
(Lili) for Most Promising Actress and Kad Merad (father)
for Best Supporting Actor.

Nutella and Vache qui Rit on a crêpe?
The crêpes were flying, the students were laughing
and everyone was putting everything and anything
on them. Qu’est-ce qu’il faut pour faire des crêpes ?
Good eye-hand coordination and a sense of humor
help a lot. Laughing Cow cheese with strawberry
jam, anyone? Nutella topped with apricot
jam — why not? Mayhem and laughter were
everywhere at this year’s Alliance Mardi Gras party

student who managed to flip a crêpe into the air

    Why learn French?
    (as if you even have to ask…)
    Come join the 220 million speakers of French from around the globe!
    • French is spoken all over the world — start in Quebec, go across Europe into parts of the Middle
    East, continue through North Africa, wind back through the Caribbean, and don’t forget to end up in
    New Orleans!

    • French remains one of the two most taught foreign languages in the US today.

    • It’s the official or working language in 32 countries.

    • French is the third most commonly-used language on the Web, and the only language other than
    English that is taught in nearly every country on the map.

    • French is fun — it’s the language of romance, food and wine, and l’art de vivre.

    We hope to see you nombreux at the Alliance this Fall for classes, talks, cinema, cooking
    and everything that represents la Francophonie in all its forms!
    Bien cordialement,
