Featured Film:

Cold Water at the Grand Illusion

There’s some good stuff out there this week, including a pair of highly anticipated Chinese films at the Pacific Place (Herman Yau’s The Leakers and Han Yan’s Animal World) and Richard Lester’s A Hard Day’s Night at the Ark Lodge, but the restoration of Olivier Assayas’s Cold Water at the Grand Illusion is a film I’ve been looking forward to seeing for a very long time (not even Scarecrow had it, if I remember correctly). The celebrated French dirctor’s first big film, it stars Virginie Ledoyen (a couple of years before she stole Edward Yang’s Mahjong) in a semi-autobiographical teen coming-of-age type story, a story Assayas would continue almost a decade later with 2012’s terrific Something in the Air.
