City Pulse

Cinema Tuesdays at The Alliance Francaise – frankly, a much better idea than left-over Chinese food Tuesdays. On September 13, the film Celine et Julie vont en bateau (Celine and Julie Go Boating) will be playing at FIAF/Florence Gould Hall. Directed by Jacques Rivette, and starring Juliet Berto, Dominique Labourier, and Marie-France Pisier, this 1974 French classique is making a 2005 comeback, and we all should relish it. IMDB says that ce film is about “A mysteriously linked pair of young women find their daily lives pre-empted by a strange boudoir melodrama that plays itself out in a hallucinatory parallel reality.” Um, hi, fabulous. The Alliance describes the film as ” A shy librarian meets a nightclub magician who takes her into a world of adventure and imagination.” Ok, weird, yes, but, um, fabulous! I love those looney francais.

The film is in French with English subtitles–yes, that will involve some reading if you don’t parlez francais, and it should be worth every minute. And with three showtimes (12:30, 4:30, and 8pm) you really don’t have an excuse to miss it. Besides, La Goulue is right up the street, and they have a terrific wine and cheese thing happening. Make a French night of it.

Location: Florence Gould Hall – 55 E. 59th Street (between Park and Madison).
Tickets are free for FIAF members, $7 for students, and $9 for general admission.
