Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
THE RABBI’S CAT
LE CHAT DU RABBIN
Dir: Joann Sfar & Antoine Delesvaux
This Cesar winner for Best Animated Feature is set in Algeria in the 1930s, where a cat swallows a parrot and gains the power of speech. The feline’s owner is a widowed rabbi with a beautiful teenage daughter, and the cat’s outrageous running commentary shifts from philosophical to skeptical to lustful at a moment’s notice. Based on a popular graphic novel by Sfar (one of France’s most acclaimed comic artists as well as a filmmaker), THE RABBI’S CAT swirls with Chagall-like colors, Daumier-esque caricatures, and backgrounds so richly detailed you’ll forget they’re drawings. An Annie Award nominee for Best Animated Feature and Best Directing in an Animated Feature! In French with English subtitles.
Dir: Marc Forster
The most recent installment of the James Bond franchise picks up right where CASINO ROYALE left off, with 007 (Daniel Craig) out for revenge against the men who killed his lover. The shadowy Quantum organization appears to be involved, and when Bond starts to track down its agents, the trail leads to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), an environmentalist with an interest in the Bolivian countryside that's hardly benevolent, and Camille Montes (Olga Kurylenko), the man's lover, who is also on a mission of revenge. Yet another huge hit, the 22nd Bond film - the next, SKYFALL, is on deck for release later this year - further raised the bar for action sequences with several hair-raising chases over air, land and water.
