Actress/director Nicole Garcia’s adaptation of Milena Agus’ novella features another wholly immersed performance from Marion Cotillard as Gabrielle, a rebellious spirit in post-WWII France. Beginning in the 1950s, Garcia presents an extended flashback to 1940s Provence where Gabrielle’s flagrant disregard for social norms leads her harried parents to give her an ultimatum: choose marriage or the madhouse. The family strikes a deal with Spanish farmer José (Alex Brendemühl) whom they will set up in business if he agrees to take her off their hands.

Festival Prévert:
Les Collages
  Have you been to the new
French Library?

Until 30 June
Admission free

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Jacques Prévert's death, the Alliance Française is pleased to host an exclusive exhibition of Jacques Prévert's collages.

We find the same themes in Prévert’s collages as we do in his writings: Through the association of disconnected images and diversions, he invites us to think about the world as it truly is and humorously yet vehemently denounces the power of politics and the Church, society with its injustices, and the oppression of men, women and animals.



Open Monday to Friday
Admission free
