After an intense and powerful Haitian movie last month, we are coming back with an excellent crazy comedy written and directed by the French king of wacky humour, the very talented and totally unique Albert Dupontel. 9 mois ferme (9 Month Stretch) is a corrosive and irreverent comedy. The movie was nominated for 6 “Cesars” and won two best original screenplay for the writer/director Albert Dupontel but also best actress for the total comedic revelation of the renowned “serious” actress Sandrine Kiberlain. It is a very rare honour for a comedy to be rewarded that way in France but all over the world as well.
Ariane Felder is an uptight, ambitious, defiantly single court judge, who unwillingly gets dragged into a New Year party. Six months later, and Ariane is pregnant with no idea about how this happened or who’s responsible. Surveillance cameras eventually reveal, that she slept with Bob Nolan, a slow-witted criminal known as the Eye Gobbler. Eventually Ariane and Nolan find themselves locked in her flat together.
As usual be there for 6pm latest to enjoy cheese, cured meats, olives and wine. Unfortunately this month Stefan is away so there will be no introduction to the movie.
