31 January 2019

Alliance Française French Film Festival has just revealed its 2019 line-up and there are some genre gems among them that include giallo killers, zombie brain-chewers and a scorned woman out for REVENGE!

KNIFE+HEART
Director Yann Gonzalez
Cast: Vanessa Paradis, Kate Moran, Nicolas Maury
During a steamy 1979 Parisian summer, Anne, a gay porn producer, recently shunned by her girlfriend and editor, Loïs, strives to regain her love by shooting her most ambitious film yet. But when one of the actors is brutally murdered, she finds herself implicated in a strange and twisted investigation.

THE NIGHT EATS THE WORLD
Director:  Dominique Rocher
Cast: Anders Danielsen Lie, Golshifteh Farahani, Denis Lavant
On waking in his ex-girlfriend’s apartment following a raging party, Sam is horrified to discover that zombies have invaded the streets of Paris, and he is one of the lone survivors. Petrified, he barricades himself inside the building to survive. Can he bear the solitude or will he learn that he’s not alone after all?

REVENGE
Director:  Coralie Fargeat
Cast: Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz, Kevin Janssens, Vincent Colombe
In this feminist thriller, Jen is enjoying a romantic desert getaway with her wealthy, married boyfriend until his two sleazy friends arrive unannounced. Mounting tension culminates in a brutal act that sees her left for dead. But she survives and begins a relentless quest for bloody revenge.
