Apr 3-8: Battle Royale, A Cat In Paris, Angelopoulos & More!

04/03/12  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Oscar-nominated A CAT IN PARIS is an animated eyeful! A CAT IN PARIS , one of the five films nominated for this year's Oscar for Best Animated Feature, is a beautifully drawn movie about Dino, a house cat with a double life. By day, Dino is the loyal companion of a lonely 7-year-old girl named Zoe, who lives with her single policewoman mother. But by night he pads across the rooftops of Paris in the company of a guy named Nico, a thief (or should we say cat burglar?). Eventually the worlds of Zoe and Nico intersect, and adventure ensues. See Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol's French-language movie (with English subtitles) on Thursday or Saturday. The presentation is supported by a generous grant from Maison Française de Cleveland. Here's the trailer. Bresson series resumes with thrilling 1956 masterpiece A MAN ESCAPED A French Resistance fighter's painstaking, step-by-step escape attempt from a Nazi prison fortress becomes a mesmerizing metaphysical journey in Robert Bresson's A MAN ESCAPED (1956). This spare, intense suspense classic is one of the great French filmmaker's greatest films. In Bresson's hands, mundane objects (spoons, wires, etc.) become precious instruments of deliverance in a meticulously composed symphony of salvation. See it in a new 35mm print on Friday or Saturday. It's our Easter/Passover presentation! Czech animator Jan ?vankmajer directs diabolical animated version of FAUST Animator/surrealist Jan ?vankmajer's second feature FAUST is a witty, macabre version of Goethe's classic. The famous story of the man who sells his soul to the Devil is told through a unique combination of live action, claymation, life-size puppets, stop-motion animation, and special effects in this 1994 Czech film (in English). FAUST is not appropriate for children, but adults can see it Thursday or Friday. Here's the film's trailer. The late Theo Angelopoulos lives on screen in beautiful ETERNITY AND A DAY 1998's ETERNITY AND A DAY was the only film by Greece's late, great filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos (1935-2012) to win the top prize at Cannes. The movie charts a poetic, metaphysical journey through modern-day Europe. Bruno Ganz (WINGS OF DESIRE, DOWNFALL) plays a dying Greek poet who decides to go on a road trip and tie up his life's loose ends before he enters the hospital. Upon leaving home, he encounters a refugee boy and decides also to return him to his grandmother in Albania. As he crosses borders and traverses frontiers, the poet takes detours into his own past (via seamless flashbacks) and occasionally hits dead ends in the political present. This elegiac masterpiece has all of the hallmarks of Angelopoulos' style: an air of serenity, a stately pace, expressive long takes, serpentine camera movements, shimmering cinematography. See ETERNITY AND A DAY and see why the director's recent death (in a freak motorcycle accident) signifies an irreplaceable loss to world cinema. BATTLE ROYALE shows tonight at the Capitol Theatre, W. 65th & Detroit Ave. Tonight (Tuesday, April 3) at 7:15 pm we return to the Capitol Theatre at W. 65th and Detroit to present one of our most requested movies of the past ten years! Kinji Fukasaku's 2000 Japanese fantasy BATTLE ROYALE is not only one of Quentin Tarantino's favorite movies and among the most controversial films of the last decade, it's also a striking precursor to THE HUNGER GAMES. Set in a futuristic Japan wracked by fiscal collapse, unemployment, and rampant juvenile crime, the film depicts the implementation of a new government law that picks a 9th grade school class at random, sends it to a remote island, and forces the students to participate in the ultimate game of survival: hunting and killing each other with an assortment of weapons until only one person is left standing. Chiaki Kuriyama (KILL BILL) and Takeshi Kitano (FIREWORKS, ZATOICHI) star in this wickedly satirical, darkly humorous, and gleefully violent action-horror comedy that has been argued, acclaimed, and banned around the world (but hasn't been screened in Cleveland since its debut at the 2001 Cleveland Int'l Film Festival). We will show the original uncut, uncensored, unrated version of BATTLE ROYALE; people under 17 must be accompanied by parent or guardian, but no one under 15 will be admitted at all. The fim will be shown on the Capitol's big screen. Tickets cost $9; Cinematheque members and CIA I.D. holders $7; ages 25 & under $5 (with proof of age). $9 tickets can be purchased in advance at www.clevelandcinemas.com. No Cleveland Cinemas passes or discounts will be honored. Free parking is available next to theatre and at other lots in the Gordon Square Arts District. THIS WEEKEND Tonight only! Special offsite screening!
