Continuing free summer cinema nights will continue every Wednesday at the Pierides Museum with the Larnaca Cinema Society presenting four more outdoor film screenings this August. Starting the month’s screenings is the French comedy Chambre 212.
The film will be screened at 8.30pm in French with Greek subtitles and it follows Maria who decides to leave her husband after 20 years of marriage. She moves to room 212 of the hotel opposite her marital home. From there, Maria can scrutinise her apartment, her husband and her wedding and wonder if she has made the right decision.
The following screening on August 11 is of another French film, a drama that was awarded the Pasinetti Award and the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for a Golden Lion. In Vivre Sa Vie there are 12 episodic tales in the life of a Parisian woman and her slow descent into prostitution.
August 18’s screening continues the French film series with the 1965 Pierot Le Fou. In the film, Pierrot, portrayed by Jean-Paul Belmondo who was nominated for Best Foreign Actor in the Baftas, escapes his boring society and travels from Paris to the Mediterranean with Marianne, a girl chased by hit-men from Algeria. They lead an unorthodox life, always on the run.
The final film screening for August breaks the French film spell as it features the Danish film Shorta about Jens and Mike, two police officers on routine patrol who find themselves trapped in a maze of buildings when unrest spreads. August 25’s screening is another award-winning film and it will be screened in its original language with subtitles in Greek.
