A YEAR OF GREAT FOREIGN FILMS - CACHE

Event Type: Film/Screening
Date: 3/1/2017
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 Cache (Hidden) is a French mystery/thriller starring the never disappointing Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil, a versatile actor well- known among fans of French cinema. They play a two-income middle-aged Parisian couple whose comfortable life is torn asunder when they start receiving videos from an anonymous source recording Auteuilís movements in and out of the coupleís upper middle-class neighborhood. This menacing intrusion understandably alarms the couple disrupting their daily routine and leading to increasingly intense marital discord. As these videos continue to arrive, they begin to reveal a source tied to a shameful event in Auteuilís past that he had suppressed for years. The remainder of the film unfolds in the manner of a classic whodunit, albeit containing far more serious themes than normally found in the genre. Additionally, while many mystery melodramas are neither linear nor transparent, Cache doubles down on these absences by circling back upon events and confounding logical assumptions. It challenges viewers to draw their own conclusions about what they saw and what really happened.

Needless to say, Cache will stimulate a lot of post screening discussion. It is one hour and 57 minutes long and I plan to start the film promptly at 6:30 PM so that we can have at least 20 minutes for discussion afterwards. For those of you who are able to arrive earlier, the room will be set up so all can socialize over some popcorn and share our love for movies pre screening.
