FIVE FUNNY FRENCH FILMS

La fille du 14 Juillet

The Rendez-Vous of Déjà Vu

An original and anarchic comedy that evokes 1960s films from Jean-Luc Godard to Richard Lester to Stanley Kramer, writer/director Antonin Peretjatko’s debut feature is a madcap road movie. Opening with the pomp and circumstance of the annual Parisian celebration of Bastille Day, the film presents Hector and Charlotte putting little effort into their jobs as security guards at the Louvre. They seize the first opportunity to hit the road with pals Truquette and Pator, inspiring a hilarious sequence of vignettes as they head toward the beach. En route, they learn that the French government has decided to cut short its citizens’ annual month-long summer vacation, and they join the collective indignation. A memorable romp, tinged with social commentary, The Rendez-Vous of Déjà Vu is unique and unforgettable.
