For almost two decades now, the French Embassy, Alliance Française, and Institut Français have been bringing the best of French Cinema to Manila. It is getting passionate at this year's French Film Festival, with most of the movies centered on stories of complicated and/or unlikely relationships.

The featured films are: “20 ans d’écart” (“It Boy”), “La Vénus à la fourrure” (“Venus in Fur”), “Mon âme par toi guérie” (“One of a Kind”), “Une autre vie” (“Lovers”), “Amour et turbulences” (“Love is in the Air”), “Les beaux jours” (“Bright Days Ahead”), “L’Écume des jours” (“Mood Indigo”), “Quai d’Orsay,” and “Situation amoureuse : C’est compliqué” (“Relationship Status: It’s Complicated”).

As the French show growing interest in Philippine cinema, the festival also pays tribute to Filipino film-making. On Independence Day (June 12), it will show three films that have previously been screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival: Lino Brocka’s “Maynila sa mga Kuko ng Liwanag,” Erik Matti’s “OTJ,” and Lav Diaz’ “Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan.”

All films are shown in original French version with English subtitles.
