Stand-Up Film Club: AMÉLIE (15) – 2001 Fra/Ger 122 min – French with subtitles – BFI Comedy Genius screening presented by Rachel Wheeley


Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Stars: Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Kassovitz, Rufus

Jeunet’s classic comic fantasy launched Tautou to stardom as the lonely waitress who finds ways to bring others the happiness (or comeuppance) they deserve, and eventually finds her own happy ending. It’s an imaginative, sassy romp through a Parisian dreamworld, filmed and acted with joyous flair.

The Odyssey (2016 France) 122 mins, Cert. 15 – subtitled

Screenings at 11.00AM & 7.30

Director: Jérôme Salle

Stars: Lambert Wilson, Pierre Niney, Audrey Tautou, Laurent Lucas


The story of Jacques-Yves Cousteau (Wilson), the sub-aquatic explorer and documentary maker.

He is an egoist and womaniser, who ignores his wife (Tautou) and two sons, and is more showman than scientist. His younger son, Philippe (Niney), grows up to become a dedicated ecologist and starts to challenge his father’s methods.

Beautifully photographed, with breath-taking underwater sequences, it features a splendid score from Alexandre Desplat and fine performances from the three leads.
