*5:30pm - I AM A NO MAN'S LAND
COMEDY & LOVE STORY*
A unique an original comedy directed by Thierry Jousse (Ex-Editor in Chief
of *Les Cahiers du Cinema*). I Am a No Man’s Land was shown in its US
Premiere last Sunday at the Crest! It has no US distribution.
Our favorite contemporary French singer and provocateur Philippe Katerine,
presented in his first starring role, in the surreal comedy, *I Am a No
Man’s Land*.* *In this quirky comedy, Philippe (Philippe Katerine), a pop
star on the verge of a nervous breakdown, is cursed by a revengeful groupie
and finds himself unable to leave his childhood village and forced to
reconnect with his forsaken parents (Aurore Clément & Jacky Berroyer). A
chance encounter with an ornithologist studying birds' nocturnal mating
behaviors (Julie Depardieu, Gérard Depardieu's daughter) may help him get
back to reality…

*7:45pm - REBELLION<http://www.sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2012ordreetlamorale.htm>
A HAWKISH FRENCH WAR MOVIE!!
*Rebellion* is the first contemporary action/war movie ever presented at
the SFFF; it is also a political and highly controversial drama about
France’s colonialism in the South Pacific, from acclaimed director Mathieu
Kassovitz (director of *Hate* –SFFF 2006, *Crimson Rivers*, *Caf**é** au
Lait*; actor in *Amélie*, *Munich*, *Haywire*).
It is 1988, in the French colony of New Caledonia. 30 policemen are taken
hostage by a group of Kanak freedom fighters. 300 soldiers are sent from
France to re-establish order. Captain Legorjus, chief of the anti-terrorist
squad, attempts to negotiate a peaceful solution, but discovers that when
the stakes are political, order isn't always dictated by morals. A
troubling epic based on the Captain’s memoirs.
