The year started with the German Film Festival and sometime later, the Iranian Film Festival.
This week will see the coming of French Film Festival and my diary has been carefully marked. Back in my hometown I used to have to travel from the east side of the island to the central to Alliance Francaise to attend the French Film Festival but I am glad that here, Golden Village International Screen in a mere 10 minutes walk away from home.
While German films are full of heavy set themes and dark humour, Iranian films are simple in plot but deep in message, over the years I have seen the pattern of French films being culturally rich but sexually morbid. This time round, however there are a few comedies thrown in so yeah, I am looking forward to this week.
The fever is gone and I am ready to roar.
Au revoir !
