Cinéspectacle: Lady Macbeth in Mzensk (Bastille)
Music: Dimitri Shostakovich
Libretto: Alexandre Preis and Dimitri Shostakovich
After: Nikolaï Leskov
Conductor: Ingo Metzmacher
Director: Krzysztof Warlikowski
Set design: Krzysztof Warlikowski
Costume design: Małgorzata Szczęśniak
Lighting design: Felice Ross
Choreography: Claude Bardouil
Scenography: Christian Longchamp
Chorus master: José Luis Basso

Of Shostakovich’s initial undertaking – a trilogy on the tragic destinies of Russian women through the ages – only one opera was ever written: the hard-hitting Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. Although one of the mainsprings of the work, the Shakespearean parallel is here bitterly ironic: unlike Lady Macbeth, Katerina Ismailova who, in the remote reaches of rural 19th century Russia, falls in love with one of her husband’s employees and is finally forced to commit suicide, is less a manipulator than a victim of a violent and patriarchal society. Krzysztof Warlikowski liberates all the subversive power of this scorching and scandalous work, which marked the early years of the Opéra Bastille.

Diane
In his narrative film debut, Kent Jones brings us the story of Diane, a widowed, altruistic septuagenarian whose life is dictated by the needs of others. She fills her days serving food to the homeless, visiting ailing friends in the last years of their lives, and, most centrally, desperately attempting to reach her drug-addicted son, despite his repeated efforts to push her away. But as these pieces of her existence begin to wither and fade, she finds herself forced to look at her own identity—and memories she’d sooner forget than face.

Minuit au Parc: Enter the Dragon (STF)
One of the most popular kung fu films ever, and perhaps the peak of the famed Bruce Lee's career, ENTER THE DRAGON achieved success by presenting a series of superbly staged fighting sequences with a minimum of distractions. The story finds Lee as a martial-arts expert determined to help capture the narcotics dealer whose gang was responsible for his sister's death. This evil villain operates from a fortified island manned by a team of crack martial artists, who also host a kung fu competition. Lee uses his skills to enter the contest and then tries to chop, kick, and otherwise fight his way into the dealer's headquarter.

«The movie can be flat-out fun, a sort of carnival of combat that can turn even a sophisticated audience into a group of gawking kids at a Saturday matinee. » -Time

«The lack of sentimentality helps focus the viewer on what the film depicts exceptionally well, namely wanton bad behavior and enthralling, wall-to-wall ass-kicking.» -Slant Magazine

RIDM+ présente: M
Filmed in Yiddish, M is a journey to the heart of Bnei Brak, world capital of the Haredim, the ultra-Orthodox Jews, “God-fearing” in Hebrew. This is where Menahem Lang grew up. He was known for his kindness, his commitment to Talmud school and especially his golden voice, which made him a renowned performer of liturgical chants. At the age of twenty, however, he broke with this pious life and moves to Tel Aviv, for the child with the bright smile was hiding a secret: for years, he was raped by members of the community that worshipped him. Menahem succeeds in opening the door to this forbidden world. This return to the scene of the crime is also a return to the places he loved, a path of initiation sprinkled with incredible encounters, recovered rituals, a reconciliation. As though drawn towards a magnet, those who experienced the same ordeal as him reveal themselves and dare to speak, driving away the haunting of the “galgal”, the vicious circle that has transformed victims of rape into rapists since the dawn of time.
