The Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad, in association with the Hyderabad Film Club and the French Embassy in India, is screening a French film titled The Strayed, on 27th April. The film screening is on at Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet.
The Strayed (Les Egares) is a 2003 flick directed by Andre Techine. It features Emmanuelle Beart, Gaspard Ulliel, Clemence Meyer, Gregoire Leprince-Ringuet and Jean Fornerod as the lead characters.
The movie is set in June 1940. German troops are advancing on Paris. Odile is a widowed school-teacher, succumbs to the widespread panic, and, with her 2 children, joins the exodus from the city. Philippe is on the cusp of adolescence, and little Cathy knows only that they are going South.
After 50 kilometres, a German plane attacks the exodus, decimating the helpless refugees. Odile and her children lose everything.
A shaven-headed 17-year-old youth, Yvan, then appears from nowhere, and leads them away from the carnage into the forest. Cut off from the rest of the world, Odile and Yvan then find themselves confronted with their own desires.
The screenings are open for everyone. Please contact Alliance Francaise at 2770-0734/2770-0736 or Bh S S Prakash Reddy of the Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841/93910-20243.
