Just before he is about to start shooting his new film, a filmmaker's life is turned upside down when a woman he had loved and who had disappeared, reappears. Ismael (Mathieu Amalric, in his seventh outing with director Arnaud Desplechin), plays the filmmaker, who describes himself as a widower. He married Carlotta (Marion Cotillard) when she was just 20 years-old. A few years later she vanished without a trace. No body or evidence of foul play was ever found. Ismael has been grieving her loss for two decades, finally obliged to have the authorities legally classify Carlotta as “missing,” as he was reluctant to have her declared “dead.” Then she seems to reappear - but how could that be? Opening choice at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

A fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Light. Filmed in Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon's signature whimsical style, Lost in Paris features the Belgium-based filmmakers as a small-town Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive vagabond. When Fiona's orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by the late Emmanuelle Riva, Oscar-nominated for Amour) who is living in Paris, she hops on the first plane she can. She arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom (Abel), the affable, but annoying tramp who just won't leave her alone. Lost in Paris with its trademark antics and intricately choreographed slapstick, will have you leaving the cinema with a gleeful skip in your step and a renewed zest for life.

Polish actress Karolina Gruszka stars in this sweeping biography of the legendary, Nobel Prize–winning physicist and chemist. Curie courted controversy with both her challenging of France’s male-dominated academic establishment and her unconventional romantic life. Physicist, chemist, and pioneer in the study of radioactivity, Curie spent her life setting precedents. She was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize and the first person to win it twice. Director Marie Noëlle conjures turn-of-the-century Europe with camerawork whose restless precision is an analogue of the brilliant scientist's mind. Karolina Gruszka is very good as Curie, conveying a mix of intelligence and romantic impulse … Chicago Reader

Frenchman Mathieu (Pierre Deladonchamps) finds himself in strange circumstances when he learns the father he never knew has just passed away in this engrossing and deeply poignant ode to familial bonds from director Philippe Lioret (Welcome). In the wake of this startling news, Mathieu is overcome with eagerness to unravel his life’s mystery, to receive the package his father left him, and most of all to meet his two brothers.

However, Mathieu’s intentions are thwarted when Pierre forbids him to reveal the true purpose of his visit to his brothers who are unaware of their relationship to him. With the body of his father still missing, and forced to conceal his true identity, Mathieu undertakes an extraordinary and compelling journey of self-discovery against the picturesque Quebec landscape. Solidly crafted family drama by ace storyteller Philippe Lioret that offers the right amount of psychological depth with a rewarding quasi-tearful glow. Variety

With a summer heatwave raging in the south of France the fire brigade have their work out dealing with outbreaks of fires all over the terrain, some of them the deliberate work of criminal gangs. Pierre Jolivet examines how the firemen cope in the face of overwhelming odds, not least because of internal conflicts between two of the officers in charge. An uncanny prelude to the blazes that caused such devastation this year on the Côte d'Azur. It deserves credit for the documentary way it captures the daily round of a squad of firefighters.

In 1891 Gauguin has exiled himself to Tahiti. He wants to rediscover his painting, as a free, wild man, far from the moral, political, and aesthetic codes of civilised Europe. He goes ever deeper into the jungle, coping with solitude, poverty, and sickness. He meets Tehura, who becomes his wife, and the subject of his greatest paintings. This second feature from Édouard Deluc, the director of Return to Mendoza. Deluc was inspired by Noa Noa, a book of journeys by Gauguin as well as The Moon and Sixpence by Somerset Maugham based on the artist’s life. Vincent Cassel incarnates Paul Gauguin with such determination and enthusiasm it is a joy to behold. Télérama

Paul (played by Solal de Montalivet) is sent from his austere orphanage home in working-class Paris in 1930 to live in the country with the cheerful Célestine and her taciturn game-keeper husband, on a vast estate belonging to Count de la Fresnaye. While out exploring, Paul meets Totoche (François Cluzet), a kindly poacher, who teaches him the secrets of the forest, the ponds and wildlife. As Paul begins his strange apprenticeship gathering mushrooms and poaching fish and game, he begins to realise it is no coincidence that he has come to this unknown place.

She feels she is slowly being pushed out of the way, yet she refuses to be relegated to the sidelines. What if now was the time to start over? What if a whole new life could begin? She has the chance among other things to rekindle the flame for her first love Totoche (Thibault de Montalembert). Delightful, warm-hearted and brimming with charm and optimism.

A moving, beautifully modulated adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s first novel, in which a young noblewoman copes with the loss of ideals. Stephane Brizé (The Measure of a Man) offers a dazzling mosaic of the trials and tribulations spanning 27 years in the life of Jeanne (Judith Chemla, Camille Rewinds). Optimistic and bright-eyed, 20-year-old Jeanne is a noblewoman living in Normandy in 1819. When the handsome Viscount Julien de Lamare (Swann Arlaud) asks for her hand in marriage, she fantasises that the years to follow will be brimming with dreamy afternoons of flower beds bathed in dappled sunlight. Yet fate holds a very different destiny for this woman’s life. Betrayed by her husband, her son, and in many ways, her own idyllic youth, we follow Jeanne through the passing of time, as her dreams turn to disillusionments. A revelation in the title role, Chemla effortlessly encapsulates an expansive range of emotions and character developments while exceptional camera work, production design and costumes recreate every detail of Jeanne’s world.
