Bonjour, Fullerton!  Looking for a different movie-going experience?  From March 6-15, The Fullerton College Humanities Division will present the 5th annual French Film Festival. Screenings will be at 7:30 pm in Fullerton College’s historic Wilshire Auditorium, across from the main campus.  The movies shown during the festival are as follows:

Thursday, March 13, 2014 - MERCI POUR LE CHOCOLAT.  The intricate plot of this psychological thriller wends its way in a playful yet suspenseful manner through the elegant homes of several affluent French-Swiss in Lausanne, Switzerland. The story follows a famous pianist, Andre Polonksi, his wife Mika,a chocolate heiress who is never without a menacing cup of hot chocolate, and a radiant young pianist who believes herself to be Polonski's long lost daughter. This film is a delectable mystery, dipped in darkest Swiss chocolate.
Friday, March 14, 2014 - LES CHORISTES (THE CHORUS).  When he takes a job teaching music at a school for troubled boys, Clément Mathieu is unprepared for its harsh discipline and depressing atmosphere. But with passion and unconventional teaching methods, he's able to spark his students' interest in music and bring them a newfound joy! However, as a result, he finds himself butting heads with the school's overbearing headmaster. A moving film with an unforgettable musical score which is suitable for the whole family.

Saturday, March 15, 2014 - THE INTOUCHABLES.  When Driss, an ex-con from the projects, is hired to take care of an eccentric French aristocrat named Philippe, his job quickly becomes an unpredictable adventure. Speeding a Maserati through Paris, seducing women, and paragliding over the Alps are just the beginning as Driss turns the world of upper-class Parisian society upside-down. As this unlikely duo overcome adversity of every flavor in this true story, they also shatter their preconceptions of love, life, and each other. An uplifting film which extracts humor from even the most poignant and challenging situations that life can throw at a person.
