Cine Club with Alliance Francaise

The fabulous Fanny Ardant is courted by Jean Rochefort in Ridicule, tonight Oct 16.

ALLIANCE Francaise Limerick sparks a season of French cinema this Wednesday 16, beginning with Patrice Leconte’s 1996 hit ‘Ridicule’. Screenings will be monthly hereon at the gorgeous No. 1 Pery Square and priced keenly at €5 members/ €6 friends, an 8pm sit-down. A glass of wine is included.

The open house attitude is cool, the setting even more so.

Mark your diary for November 13’s ‘Quai d’Orsay’, a comedy by Bertrand Tavernier, and December 11’s ‘Dilili a Paris’. This Michel Ocelot offering is an animated period adventure.

AFL’s Anne Blondelle signals that Cine Club will run the course of 2020 also – quelle bonne idée. What a beautiful way to live life under a chandelier and to up our cultural capital. Consider the Alliance’s initiative to be tangential to their annual June box-office smash, Tres Court International Film Festival, pioneered in Ireland by these enterprising women.
