Le Movie Club: The French Film Rendez-Vous
Le Movie Club presents In the Courtyard (Dans la Cour) by Pierre Salvadori (2013, 1h38) with Catherine Deneuve, Gustav Kerven and Feodor Atkine, on Thursday 25 May at 19:30.
40-year-old musician Antoine suddenly decides to end his career. After several days’ aimless wandering, he is hired as the caretaker of an old residential building in Paris.
Mathilde is a recently retired resident, generous-spirited and deeply involved with the management company of the building. After she discovers a crack in her living room wall, her worry gradually turns to panic - what if the building were to collapse? Slowly, Antoine develops a fondness for this woman he is afraid will slip into madness.
Through a confusion of misfires and anxiety, the two develop an awkward friendship, funny yet solid, which might just get them through this difficult patch...
