After many weeks of work, the Alliance Française Drama Club is now ready to present its fabulous new comedy show Je vais bien. Pourquoi? written and directed by Anne Abel Nakache, professional actress and teacher. 

This sketch comedy show is full of surprises that highlights the ridicules of our daily lives:

Taking a taxi, requesting a passport, attending an Italian class, driving to Dundrum Shopping Centre by scooter, first encounters, announcing some good news to your parents, finding a present for a hen party, an appointment at the Holles Street maternity hospital... what happens when a touch of madness comes to disrupt the well-oiled machines that are our lives?

La Folie des grandeurs
  Robert Bresson
  The Mountain
by Nadim Asfar

Thursday 27 June – 7.40pm
€5 with a free glass of wine / Free for Premium Members  

Join us every month for a subtitled screening of one of the most popular box-office hits in French cinema history, preceded by an informal presentation with a free glass of wine!

This month, (re)discover the 1971 comedy film  La Folie des grandeurs by Gérard Oury. In this hilarious spoof loosely based on Victor Hugo's Ruy Blas, a tax collector of the 17th century Spanish court (Louis de Funès) tries to retrieve his job with the help of his valet (Yves Montand).

The Cinéclub is free for AF Premium Members. Win tickets on our Twitter!
