French toast in H’w’d

'Quentin' to open eclectic film series

HOLLYWOOD — The City of Lights, City of Angels French film fest partied even more than usual during its eighth Hollywood edition with a Standard hotel poolside soiree adding to the traditional Director’s Guild opening reception.

Faithful French film supporters Julie Delpy, Lambert Wilson and Jacqueline Bisset turned out March 26 at a DGA opening to fete the eclectic film series. Sharon Stone introduced Francis Veber‘s opening night film “Ruby & Quentin,” while son Jean Veber was there with his first film, environmental thriller “The Pharmacist.”

Francophile honcho Jack Valenti said he hopes to continue working with organizations like City of Lights when he steps down as MPAA prexy.

Two nights later, Wilson, who appears in series film “Not on the Lips,” director Claudia Durgnat and French consul general Jean-Luc Sibiude toasted the series on the roof of the Downtown Standard hotel — with champagne and French fries, bien sur.
