Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad, in association with the Hyderabad Film Club, is screening a French movie, Hell Of A Day (Reines D'un Jour), at the Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet, on 17th February. This movie is directed by Marion Vernoux, and has Karin Viard, Helene Fillieres, Victor Lanoux, Jane Birkin and Sergi Lopez playing their respective characters, among others.
The story of the film is about how, one day in Paris, 4 people are about to embark on a day of emotional turmoil. Marie loses her job in a photo-shop when a customer complains she ruined her wedding photos. Worse, she learns she is pregnant, the result of an impromptu liaison with the groom at the aforementioned wedding.
Meanwhile, the groom's sister, Hortense, is planning to make use of her husband’s absence for that night so that she can hook up with a former lover. She has 2 candidates lined up for her night of extra-marital amusement, but are they remotely interested in her?
Bus driver Luis is traumatized when his wife announces his intention to leave him. As Luis and his wife play out the end of their relationship, Luis' passengers are treated to an unscheduled and turbulent bus trip across Paris.
Finally, Maurice is busy smartening himself up and sprucing up his apartment. He has just had a phone call from his ex-lover Jane, whom he hasn't seen for decades. As the minutes tick down to their agreed rendezvous, Maurice imagines how their meeting will play out.
For all four of these love-hungry souls, nothing goes quite as expected this day.
