Cine Interzone: live music by BIRD COURAGE + Laurence Anyways LAURENCE ANYWAYS 2012
Directed by Xavier Dolan
161 minutes
In French with English subtitles

Directed by the shinning light of the French Canadian film scene Xavier Dolan (I Killed my Mother / J'ai tué ma mère). Dolan's films seem to follow no previous template, and always have an unusual sensibility and intimacy in them. Some film directors manufacture carbon copies, others create. Dolan is a creator.... an original artist.

This is his third film. He was 23 when he made it! The storyline revolves around a complicated love story, and opens with Laurence and his girlfriend Frederique who become life-long soul mates. But once Laurence turns 35, he confesses to his girlfriend that he longs to be a woman, and he asks her to help support him in this journey. So starts a decades long on-again off-again relationship as both of their lives change. Underneath the storyline is the core theme of confinement and the need for expression. The film opens up in the late 80s and is set to the moody music of that period... in other words The Cure, Duran Duran, Kim Carnes, etc. It stars Melvil Poupaud, an amazing Suzanne Clément (who won the Un Certain Regard award for best actress at Cannes) and Nathalie Baye. This will be a full high-definition projection.

SPECIAL NOTICE: From 20:00 to 20:30 there will be the band BIRD COURAGE from Brooklyn, providing live music before the film.
opens at: 20:00
price: 3,-
