Fall Season Festival
Fall Season Festival:French Cinema Now
Set against the backdrop of France’s economic crisis, this trenchant crowd-pleaser depicts a group of elderly friends who decide to pool their resources and live out their sunset years under the same roof. There’s the irascible Claude (Claude Rich), who photographs nudes. Jeanne (Jane Fonda, speaking fluent French), recently diagnosed with cancer, is pragmatically coffin-hunting while dealing with her increasingly forgetful husband Albert (Pierre Richard). And there’s the shrink Annie (Geraldine Chaplin) and her politically active husband, who invite the rest of the group to their home after one of them suffers a heart attack. Throw a handsome young anthropologist interested in aging into the mix and you have a warm and star-studded portrait of years-long friendship and the dilemmas of getting older.
