‘A Single Girl’ at Alliance Francaise

The French thriller 'À Tout de Suite' directed by Benoit Jacquot will be screened on Tuesday October 21 at 3 pm and Wednesday October 22 at 6.30 pm at Aliance Francaise, Barnes Place, Colombo-7.

In Benoît Jacquot's deft homage to the French New Wave, the radiant young actress Isild Le Besco plays Lili, a 19-year-old Parisian art student who plunges recklessly into an affair with Bada (Ouassini Embarek), a Moroccan-French bank robber she meets in a bar and takes home for sex that very night. A day or two later, after a botched hold-up that leaves two people dead, Bada calls Lili from the scene of the crime to say goodbye.

She promises that if he makes a successful getaway, he can spend the night in her family's spacious apartment. Minutes later, Bada and his accomplice appear at the back door. The next morning, Lili flees with them without leaving a note.

The film stars Islid Le Besco, Ouassini Embarek, Laurence Cordier and Nicolas Duvauchelle in the lead roles.

The downbeat story unfolds in quick, incisive slashes in which the combination of minimal dialogue and gorgeous black-and-white photography lends the movie a chilly documentary realism.
