The 6th MiniFest is coming up on Sunday, October 27, for a full day packed
with four fresh French films, presented on the giant screen of the Esquire
IMAX Theatre.

*JUST ADDED! In homage to singer/actor Philippe Katerine -who won the**
2019 César (French Oscar) for Best Supporting Actor for his role in SINK OR
SWIM (playing at 4:35pm)-, each film will be preceded by one of his crazy
music videos!*

The program will start with the historical comedy *CYRANO, MY LOVE *
<https://sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2019_edmond.htm>*(Edmond)*,
a crowd-pleasing tale of how Edmond Rostand’s famous play *Cyrano de
Bergerac* came to life! It will be followed by Cédric Klapisch’s singular
Parisian romance, *SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE
<https://sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2019_deux-moi.htm> (Deux
Moi)*; *SINK OR SWIM
<https://sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2019_le-grand-bain.htm> (Le
Grand Bain)*, a hilarious all-star comedy about a male synchronized
swimming team; and by *BY THE GRACE OF GOD
<https://sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2019_grace-a-dieu.htm>
(Grâce à Dieu)*, Francois Ozon’s drama about a current real-life sexual
abuse scandal in the French Catholic Church. It won the Silver Bear Award
at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival.

*Cyrano, My Love and By the Grace of God will be followed by Q&A with Le
Professeur Kevin Elstob.*

HISTORICAL COMEDY

*Rated R for brief nudity **Screening followed by Q&A with Le Professeur
Kevin Elstob.*

*Cyrano, My Love* is a fictionalized, crowd-pleasing tale of how Edmond
Rostand’s famous play *Cyrano de Bergerac *came to life. Alexis Michalik’s
spirited film is pure delight from beginning to end. In the tradition
of *Shakespeare
in Love*, the film mixes historical facts with a heavy dose of fiction, as
Rostand’s inspiration emerges from the most unlikely places. The film just won
the AMERICAN STUDENTS AWARD at the COLCOA Film Festival in Los Angeles.

*2:10pm - SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE
<https://sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2019_deux-moi.htm> *
(*Deux Moi*, 110 min, 2019) by Cédric Klapisch
PARISIAN ROMANCE
*Not Rated (all audiences)*

After setting recent films in New York City and Burgundy, Cédric Klapisch
reunites with his beloved city of Paris in this singular romance that ends
where romantic comedies usually begin. In the tender and deliberately
optimistic *Someone, Somewhere*, Klapisch follows his two main characters
on their parallel paths to self-discovery, until they are ready to finally
meet. Klapisch creates a moving and funny portrait of two young people who
are both struggling with themselves and with human relationships in today's
Paris. MORE...

FEEL-GOOD ENSEMBLE COMEDY
*Not Rated (adult situations, drug use)*

We are so excited to finally be able to present this one! Mathieu Amalric
leads an all-star cast in this hilarious, feel-good buddy comedy directed
by actor Gilles Lellouche, about a male synchronized swimming team of
unlikely athletes tackling midlife crises while celebrating their inner
Esther Williams. Also starring Guillaume Canet, Jean-Hugues Anglade, and
singer Philippe Katerine in a role that earned him the 2019 César (French
Oscar) for Best Supporting Actor. MORE...

*7:10pm - BY THE GRACE OF GOD
<https://sacramentofrenchfilmfestival.org/movie2019_grace-a-dieu.htm>*(Grâce
à Dieu, 137 min, 2019) by François Ozon
TRUE DRAMA / CRIME

*Not Rated (adult situations, disturbing subject) *
*Screening followed by Q&A with Le Professeur Kevin Elstob. *

With *By the Grace of God*, his deliberate homage to *Spotlight*, the
versatile François Ozon helms a gripping dramatization of a child sexual
abuse scandal in the Catholic Church in France. The film tells the story of
three survivors, now adult men, each of whom plays an important role in
holding to account the Archbishop of Lyon, accused of covering up the abuse
committed by a priest in his diocese for more than 30 years. The film won
the Silver Bear Award at the 2019 Berlin International Film Festival.
