The Alliance Française French Film Festival: 2016


One of my favourite times of the year, we are treated to a huge list of French films, spanning across a range of genres. I have already seen Dheepan and Lolo, and tonight I hope to catch White Knights, a story about a fictional charity program for young orphans that straddles the line between charity and child smuggling.

As for the rest of my next fortnight, I’d LOVE to hear any suggestions!

I’m horrible when it comes to names, so if you can be bothered, click here to see a full list of the films playing. See an actor or director that you think I’d like? Let me know! I am sure there are some prominent French directors with films playing this year, hopefully anyone reading this can help me out. There is a LOT to pick from!

I hope you are all enjoying your week so far 🙂

  1. Man, that’s so cool that there are so many great film fests in Adelaide. Interesting that in this film fest the Juliette Binoche movie is called L’ATTENTE but at MSPIFF it’s called L’Attesa meaning ‘The Wait.’ In any case, I’m seeing that one and also Mon Roi (My King).


    • I’m seeing Mon Roi next week, looks good doesn’t it? That Juliette Binoche movie is also called The Wait in English, that is odd that they have differing French names.


      • Yeah Mon Roi looks good as I’m curious to see Vincent Cassel in a non-villainous role. Yeah that’s odd about The Wait but I do love miss Binoche!


      • She is a great actress though I haven’t seen her in much. And I love Cassell in almost everything I’ve seen him in


    • Yep I’m just picking ones that sound good and watching them. I do wish I knew French directors better because I’m sure some of these are done by well-known directors. Oh well, the three flicks I’ve seen so far were pretty good!

  3. This sounds so cool.
    I’ve actually not seen any of the films on that list besides Dheepan, but i’ve heard great things about both Mon Roi and Measure of A Man, both of which attracted a lot of positive buzz at Cannes. I think Measure of A Man took Best Actor for its star Vincent Lindon as well. And I see Contempt is on the list too, which is considered as one of Goddard’s classics, but havent seen it so couldnt say much besides that.


    • Hey thanks for the info! Yeah I definitely wanna check those two movies out, they look good. There’s a ton of great stuff to pick from! And I’m hoping to catch Contempt on closing night, would be pretty damned cool on a big screen!
