Le ciné de l'Alliance

L’Alliance fait son cinéma !

The Alliance has always been keen on promoting Francophone film culture. After having proposed Les Cinés Canapé on zoom during the pandemic toughest moments, it is with great pleasure to reopen the doors of Le ciné de l’Alliance.

Join us every other Wednesday to watch a French-Speaking movie with us ! You will then have the occasion to discuss the movie and the subjects related with the volunteers.

Fiction, autobiography, cartoon or documentary : Le ciné de l’Alliance make it a point of honor to offer a diversity of types and subjects, according to thematic cycles which will be renewed each month. Beyond the pleasure of discovering more of the French-Speaking cinematography and its richness, it is a great opportunity to listen to some French and to practise it if you feel comfortable to do it.

OCTOBER 13 : Les garçons et Guillaume, à table ! de Guillaume Gallienne

OCTOBER 27 : Adieu les cons d’Albert Dupontel


In October, come discover two movies based on the thematic En-quête d’identité ! / In quest of Identity

Nos vies sont jalonnées de quêtes : quête de soi, de son identité, quête de son passé... Ces recherches sont faites de rencontres, plus ou moins romanesques, et sont, quelque soit leur nature, de véritables aventures, qui trouvent parfois leurs dimensions sur grand écran. Ces deux films explorent avec beaucoup d’humour le thème de la quête à travers la notion de famille. Tandis que Les garçons et Guillaume, à table ! questionne la thématique de l’identité et de la sexualité en retraçant le fil d’une enfance et adolescence, Adieu les cons embarque des personnages loufoques et défaits par la vie dans une enquête rocambolesque pour retrouver un enfant né sous X.

Our lives are punctuated by quests: the quest for oneself, for one's identity, the quest for one's past... These searches are made of encounters, more or less novelistic, and are, whatever their nature, real adventures, which sometimes find their dimensions on the big screen. These two films explore with a lot of humor the theme of the quest through the notion of family. While Les garçons et Guillaume, à table ! questions the theme of identity and sexuality by retracing the thread of a childhood and adolescence, Adieu les cons takes us on a zany investigation to find a child born under X.
