February – Soirée

Drinks and Nibbles

Friday, February 28th

Bonne année et nouvelle décennie !

Of course the start of a new decade is open to interpretation as to where it actually begins, but we’ll celebrate anyway !

Let’s ease our way into the New Year with a casual meet-up and celebrate with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine, some amuse-bûche and good conversation
(en franҫais, bien sûr !)

Nibbles

As people will be bringing nibbles only and not a full meal, please note that this meeting will start at 6.30pm and finish at 8pm.

For more information, check your February newsletter.

 

 

 

March – FRENCH FILM

Who do you think I am? (Celle que vous croyez)

Thursday, March 12 at Ballarat Mechanics’ Institute, Sturt St.
6.45pm for 7pm Drinks and nibbles. Film starts 7.30pm.

This 2019 film, starring Juliette Binoche, is part romantic drama and part thriller, telling the story of a woman who becomes trapped in her own web of deceit. Based on a novel by Camille Laurens, it tells the story of a 50-year-old divorced teacher, unceremoniously dumped by her younger lover, who hatches a plan of retribution to get even with
him.

Who Do You Think I AmShe creates a fake persona of a beautiful 24-year-old woman on the internet, but instead of luring her target, it is her ex-lover’s friend who becomes interested. As he becomes smitten with her, she finds herself caught in her own dishonesty when she falls for him, despite him being half her age.

Film critic, David Stratton, gave it four stars and described it as ‘a dark satire on how social media can be manipulated’.

The film is being shown by Ballarat Film Society and Alliance franҫaise de Ballarat is supplying wine and cheese for the event. Cost will be $10 each for Alliance franҫaise members. Payment to Nigel.
