In case you’re wandering La Croisette, wondering where all the interlocking three-part dramas with unexpected science-fiction elements are, you might want to check out The Nines, which has three market screenings scheduled this week:
- Wednesday, May 16th at 12:00pm – Palais K (Market)
- Friday, May 18th at 8:00pm – Palais K (Market)
- Monday, May 21st at 11:00am – The Deauville / Majestic Hotel (Market)
We’re not in competition — these screenings are just to give distributors in, say, Bulgaria, a chance to see the movie. I’m not there, 1 so I have no particular insight on how to muscle one’s way into these screenings, except that persistence almost always pays off.
This is also a unique opportunity to see the movie with its sparkling new French subtitles:
Je suis Ã ça de t’avoir Christine Walsh pour Parade Magazine.
Je déteste Parade Magazine.
Tout le monde déteste. Le public de “Crime Lab” adore leur Marilyn Vos Savant. Fais-nous un petit acte de contrition, et peut-Ãªtre qu’on tuera pas ton personnage. Va pas me faire un pétage de plomb...
Je suis pas fou.
- A strange sentence: “I’m not there.” Obviously, I could never be “there,” since I am always “here.” It feels like the kind of contradiction that would have been pointed out to Alice in one of her adventures. ↩
