THE DISENCHANTED:

"A rich evocation of a headstrong young woman's turbulent inner life." - The New York Times

In her breakthrough role, Judith Godreche plays Beth, a disaffected 17 year old living in Paris with her bedridden mother and forced to hold her family together by degrading herself. This intimate drama focuses on three days in which Beth loses her childhood, becomes a woman, and becomes disenchanted.

A SINGLE GIRL:

"Dazzling...Buoyant...Sharp-eyed...and Sexy." - The New York Times

Shot in real time, Virginie Ledoyen delivers a tour de force performance in a film that is a clear descendant of the great early films of the French New Wave. The largely hand-held camera follows 19 year old Valerie on her first day on the job at a luxury hotel, a day in which she must reveal to her aimless boyfriend that she is pregnant and decide whether she wants to have a child with him.

KEEP IT QUIET:

"Perhaps the most perfectly nuanced film (director) Jacquot has ever made." - Film Society of Lincoln Center

In this low key satirical farce, a CEO is released from prison and rejoins his family who have a difficult time with his complete change in character, moving from a captain of industry to an eccentric innocent.
