(An official selection at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, Toronto International Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival, "THIS MAGNIFICENT CAKE!" (CE MAGNIFIQUE GÂTEAU!) is an unforgettable work of stopmotion animation exploring the bitter milieu of Belgium-occupied Congo. In the late 19th century, keen to compete with other European imperial powers on the continent, King Leopold II of Belgium proclaimed, “I do not want to miss a good chance of getting us a slice of this magnificent African cake.” The subsequent occupation of the Congo would come to attract a contingent of servants, merchants and miscellaneous bourgeois driven by everything from insatiable greed to existential fear. From the intimate stories of these characters — many of whom pass through a luxury hotel in the middle of the jungle – emerges a greater narrative concerning the imperialist mentality. In a film by turns surreal, darkly comic and brutal, directors Marc James Roels and Emma de Swaef ultimately turn their critical gaze on the colonists themselves in a work of stunning, mysterious beauty.)

#COLCOA Classics *** New on Blu-ray and DVD: Digitally restored version of "LA VERITE" (1960), a drama co-written and directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot, starring Brigitte Bardot, Samy Frey, Paul Meurisse, Charles Vanel, Marie-Jose Nat, Jacques Perrin. A Criterion Collection release. Available on Blu-ray and DVD since February 12.

(Beautiful, troubled Dominique Marceau (Brigitte Bardot) came to bohemian Paris to escape the suffocation of provincial life, only to wind up in a courtroom, accused of a terrible crime: the murder of her lover (Sami Frey). As the trial commences and the lawyers begin tangling over Dominique’s fate, Henri-Georges Clouzot’s Oscar-nominated La vérité delves into her past, reconstructing her struggle to find a foothold in the city. What emerges is a nuanced portrait of an impulsive young woman misunderstood and mistreated by those around her, and of her ultimately tragic affair with an up-and-coming conductor. With an astonishing performance by Bardot, Clouzot’s affecting and intricately constructed film—a huge late-career success for the French master—renders a harsh verdict against a hypocritical and moralistic society.)

#COLCOA CINEMA * Coming soon to select US theaters (February 22): "THE CONVERSATION", a documentary written and directed by Claire Simon ("GOD'S OFFICE", "GARE DU NORD", "CA BRULE"). Winner Best Documentary Venice IFF. A Metrograph Pictures film. Opening In New York on February 22, 2019 (at the Metrograph). Other cities to follow.
.
* Watch the trailer: www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1h_s-VzDpY&t=3s
.
(Claire Simon’s "THE COMPETITION" begins, significantly, with the image of a locked gate—that of the Fondation Européenne pour les Métiers de l’Image et du Son, or, as it’s more popularly known, La Fémis. One of the most prestigious film schools in the world, every year La Fémis attracts hundreds upon hundreds of applicants hoping to fill only forty annual slots.
This new film by Simon, one of France’s premiere nonfiction filmmakers, offers a unique look into the process whereby those lucky forty are selected. Involving examiners from the French film industry, this process is highly personal, idiosyncratic and subject to the vagaries of taste and personal prejudice.
"THE COMPETITION" is not only a unique opportunity to see the inner workings of an institution at the heart of the French film industry, but an invitation to look at the assumptions and roadblocks that shape any national film industry, and higher education in general. ~ frenchculture.org)
