French cultural center plans to show comedies

The Alliance Française is hosting a French comedy film screening, “Viernes Cinéfilos,” every Friday beginning this week at 6 p.m. The event is free.

Every Friday a different French film will show with Spanish subtitles on a large screen at the center in Barrio Amón.

The first film to inaugurate the month-long screening is the 2010 film “Potiche” (“Trophy Wife” in English) with director Francois Ozon. This is a story about a woman who takes over the family business after her husband has a heart attack in the late 1970s. She goes from being a trophy wife to the head of an umbrella-making corporation.

The film “Les Côtelettes” (“The Chops”) will be shown Feb. 10, “Play Time” Feb. 17 and “Drôle de Drame” (“Funny Drama”) Feb 24.

Every first Friday of the month Alliance Française has an open space for children to come and watch a French film with Spanish subtitles at 3 p.m. This month the cutural organization will show “Une Vie de Chat” (“A Cat”) .
