CINEMAGIQUE presente PARIS CAN WAIT
The MOVIECARD is not accepted for this special event.

"Charting the midlife renewal of a woman's independence and sensuality, Eleanor Coppola's road movie takes us on an intoxicating tour de France lined with heavenly vistas, art and architecture, and visions of cuisine régionale to die for.

In her early fifties, Anne (Diane Lane) has arrived at a turning point. Her daughter has left home to attend university, and her nest now feels doubly empty because her workaholic husband (Alec Baldwin), a successful film producer, is chronically absent. When he is called away on location, Anne is offered transport from Cannes to Paris with her husband's friend and business associate (Arnaud Viard), a seductive bon vivant who unabashedly sets sights on his comely passenger. The trip could be done in a matter of hours, but it stretches into a leisurely two-day journey brimming with diversions such as beautiful churches, fine food, delectable wine — and expert wooing. While the rakish connoisseur regards the many young women he might easily bed as mere soufflé, Anne, he declares, is crème brûlée. But will Anne ultimately surrender to his charms?

Coppola is best known for Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse, her incisive, gripping production diary that ushered us deep into the chaotic genesis of her husband's legendary epic, Apocalypse Now. Nothing could be more different than this sexy, effervescent travelogue. As writer and director, and as matriarch to a fiendishly talented filmmaking dynasty, Coppola has been in the business for over five decades now. Her first step away from documentary was a long time in coming, but Paris proves to be well worth the wait." - MICHÈLE MAHEUX FOR TIFF

LA FILLE DE NEIGE
Snegurochka was born in times of old in Tsar Berendey’s mythical kingdom, the fruit of the union between Spring the Beauty and Grandfather Frost. Protected by her parents from the jealousy of the Sun god Yarilo who has vowed to warm her heart when she gets older and falls in love, Snegurochka the snow maiden is entrusted to the wood sprite... Particularly attached to the opera which he himself considered to be a work of maturity, RimskyKorsakov would write ten years after its creation that: “anyone who fails to love The Snow Maiden understands nothing of my works nor of myself”. A masterpiece of popular Slavic literature, The Snow Maiden brings to the stage a magical fantasy enriched by the rigours of the weather. Aida Garifullina sings the role of Snegurochka whilst the production and musical direction have been left in the capable hands of two other Russian artists: the young conductor Mikhail Tatarnikov and director Dmitri Tcherniakov.

BGL DE FANTAISIE (STA)
Jasmin Bilodeau, Sébastien Giguère and Nicolas Laverdière met as visual arts students at Université Laval. After 20 years working together as BGL, doing no damage to their friendship, their career truly took off in 2015. Their art – “intellectual tinkering” – is now prominently displayed on the streets of Toronto and Montreal, in the form of imposing public artworks; the collective is even representing Canada at the 56th Venice Biennale with a piece called Canadissimo. During their triumphant year, Benjamin Hogue followed them and made this direct cinema document of the approach, work and life of a playful, uncomplicated, critical and explosive trio of artists blessed with a contagious sense of the fantastical.

KEDI (STA)
Hundreds of thousands of cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, these animals live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame –and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.

NICK CAVE: ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING (3D) (STF)
Directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly), ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING captures the creation of Skeleton Tree, the sixteenth studio album from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

Originally a performance based concept, ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds' filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave's narration and improvised rumination. Filmed in black-and-white and colour, in both 3D and 2D, the result is fragile, raw and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.

THE BLEEDER (STF)
He was the pride of Bayonne, New Jersey, a man who went fifteen rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali, and the real life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck Wepner (Liev Schreiber) was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicized title match. It's the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame-but what happens when your fifteen minutes in the spotlight are up? Driven by a committed performance from Liev Schreiber, Chuck is a refreshingly human tale of resilience and redemption. Elisabeth Moss and Naomi Watts costar.

Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain.
