It is sincere and savoury like the Raimu de Pagnol, at the top of an unreachable good theatrical sense where the bodies and words engage for a cinematographic harmony of rare elegance.

In “La tête en friche” (My afternoons with Marguerite) the latest work of Jean Becker, Gérard Depardieu rises amongst the biggest with the grace of simplicity and accessible emotion. His impressive role perfectly corresponds to that of the actress, Gisèle Casadesus, who plays “Marguerite”, the other head of the film who is just, thoughtful, and determined in opening the horizons of “Germain,” the illiterate.

The film director, Jean Becker, big lover of the French province and simple things, applies himself as in “Les enfants du marais” or “Dialogue avec mon jardinier” to weave the almost miraculous relations between and amongst its characters with modesty and tact delivering the best roles of its talented cast.

“La tête en friche” is in Miami where it will premier on the 6th edition of the festival ‘France Cinema Florida” which will take place Friday, November 5th at 6:55pm and then on its closing night November 7th after “L’Italien” (The Italian). In Boca Raton, this film will be featured during the closing of the festival to take place on Sunday, November 14th at 5:45pm.

Other films, other faces with “Tête de turc” by Pascal Elbé scheduled to show November 6th and 7th in Miami with the presence of the film director who at the same time is the screenwriter and actor of the film followed by “L’Italian” by Olivier Baroux, the film that opens the festival in the city of Boca Raton on Friday, November 12th.

“Tête de turc” (Turk’s head), Pascal Elbé’s first production, is a thriller film where we find Roschdy Zem who not so long ago made a film with the actor Elbé. If the outskirts of the city and its despair are put under a fine magnifying glass, the subject is interested in fraternity, a universal link revisited here through well-sharpened suspense.

As for Kad Merad, he is Dino “the Italian” Olivier Baroux’s third feature film, a bittersweet comedy about a social drama which treats with emotion the questions of identity and integration.

For the Floridians, “RTT” (Day off) by Frédéric Berthe is a must see as it was filmed in the south of the “Sunshine State” last autumn and those who appreciate Catherine Frot and Albert Dupontel’s talent, have to follow “The Vilain”. With two showings, one in Miami on November 6th and the other Saturday, November 13th in Boca Raton, even the busiest cannot miss out!

The 2010 program schedule also features comedies “L’amour, c’est mieux à deux” (The Perfect Date) by Dominique Farrugia and Arnaud Lemort, “Pièce montée” (The Wedding Cake) by Denys Granier-Deferre as well as “Tout ce qui brille” (All that glitters) by Géraldine Nakache and Hervé Mimran.
As for “Dans tes bras” (In your arms) by Hurbert Gillet with Michèle Laroque, Martin Loizillon, treats the touching story of the distress of a teenager in search of his mother.

As you could have noticed, for the first time these ten feature films will be showing twice the first weekend of the festival and in one of the most historic cultural venues of the city of Miami, the Tower Theatre located just steps away from the Alliance française of South Florida (1508 SW 8th Street).

In Boca Raton; the Sunrise Cinemas will host the showings at 301 Plaza Real.
