One chilly Parisian night, a young girl (Frenchy pop star Vanessa Paradis) contemplates suicide on a dark bridge. Out of the night comes a stranger (Daniel Auteuil) who offers her a second chance. He is a once great, now-faded circus performer, a knife-thrower in need of a partner. Together these two lost souls form a deep, telepathic bond. This hypnotic modern fairy tale comes from director Patrice Leconte ( Ridicule, Monsieur Hire). Bring a date!

The Widow of Saint-Pierre The Widow of Saint-Pierre (La Veuve de Saint Pierre)
Set in the year 1850 on a remote French island off the coast of Newfoundland, this emotionally charged romantic epic tells the story of an immediately remorseful killer (Emir Kusturica) who murders another man during a drunken altercation. With neither a guillotine nor an executioner at his disposal, the local French military commandant (Daniel Auteuil) is obliged to take custody of the prisoner until a guillotine can be shipped in from overseas. The commandant’s wife (Juliette Binoche), a beautiful and compassionate woman, comes to question the death penalty and believes that the condemned man should live out his remaining time in a productive and redeeming manner. She takes him under his wing, and soon the noble prisoner becomes a respected and indispensable member of his community. … Of course, that guillotine is still on its way. In French with English subtitles.
