Join our teacher Caroline for a Café Cinéma to discuss French cinéma in a relaxed and francophone environment.
Our Café Cinéma will take place on-site at our premises on Friday afternoon.
The film selected in February is "Trois hommes et un couffin" de Coline Serreau (1985):
"Three young men (Jacques, Pierre and Michel) share an apartment in Paris having many girlfriends and parties; during the film, they have signed a contract never to allow a girl to spend more than one night at their place. During one party, a friend of Jacques' tells him he has a compromising package (which turned out to be heroin) to deliver, and asks Jacques if he can leave it discreetly at their place. Jacques agrees and, as he works as a steward, flies away for a one-month trip in Japan telling Pierre and Michel about the package. One of Jacques' former girlfriends drops a baby before their door, making Pierre and Michel believe it is the package they are waiting for. Their lives change completely. The movie follows the bachelors as they deal with angry gangsters, suspicious cops, and the overwhelming responsibility of fatherhood."
The film was remade in Hollywood as Three Men and a Baby in 1987 which was subsequently remade into seven movies in six languages.
