Jean-Luc's fragile and truly imperfect bourgeois life was about to shatter - with some help from his own father.
How I Killed My Father, by Anne Fontaine, is an elegant psychological drama about a father-son relationship that is quintessentially French. Forty year-old Jean-Luc is a successful gerontologist living in the wealthy Parisan suburb with his beautiful wife Isa. The unexpected arrival of his father, Maurice, threatens to shatter the facade of contentment that Jean has build over years.
The Made By Women 2005 International Women's Film Festival is now on a tour around India, with the British Council's support. The Festival is the brainchild of Meenakshi Shedde, former film critic with The Times Of India, and Point Of View, a non-profit organisation from Mumbai.
Point Of View explores the viewpoints of women through different media — books, theatre, photography and films. During the previous tour, in 2004, there were a range of films from Samira Makhmalbaf’s The Apple, to Jane Campion’s Sweetie. This festival was held in collaboration with the Federation Of Film Societies Of India, and went on a national tour of eight cities.
The gratifying reponse convinced them to return, with Bishakha Datta as the festival director, for another national tour of eight cities during April and May 2005 - Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Thiruvananthapuram, Hyderabad and Pune.
