Un peuple et son roi
Un peuple et son roi
For many people I guess the story of the French Revolution is the storming of the Bastille and the guillotining of Louis XVI. But a great deal happened between these two events, as indeed it did afterwards. This film fills in the gap. It's almost documentary in nature but we do of course have some central characters to take us through the story.

Belleville Story
Belleville Story
This film has the feel of what we used to call a B Movie, or in this case a téléfilm. It's basically a gangster movie, although here the players are very much at the amateur end of the underworld spectrum.

Belleville is an area in the 20th arrondissement in the north-east of Paris. It includes a Chinese quarter and this is the setting for the film.

This is the story of Isabelle Fortier, a sex worker whose first novel, Putain (whore), received critical acclaim. Working and writing as Nelly Arcan, we see her as a conflicted person, confident as a prostitute but, despite her success, far less so as an author .

1905 - The Winds of Passion
"1905" (The Winds of Passion)
In 1905 a French Law was passed establishing secularism, which among other things meant that religion could no longer be taught in state schools. When Marie Dutilleul returns to her home village as a teacher, her adherence to the new law sets her against the local priest and her grandfather.
