Rendez-vous ready

Film society sets annual cinematic Gaul fest

Works by Gallic auteurs Olivier Assayas, Claire Denis, Benoit Jacquot and Bertrand Tavernier have been tapped to screen at the annual Film Society of Lincoln Center’s “Rendez-Vous With French Cinema,” running March 11-20 in Gotham.

Set to kick off the series is the French hit from last year, “36 Quai des Orfevres,” by Olivier Marchal. Pic stars Daniel Auteuil and Gerard Depardieu in the story of a Parisian police unit fighting organized crime.

Also screening for the fest’s opening will be Benoit Jacquot’s “A tout de suite,” also released last year in France. Pic, set in 1976, follows lovers on the run in the vein of “Bonnie and Clyde” and “Badlands.”

Other opening screenings will include Andre Techine’s “Les Temps qui changent” and Tavernier’s “Holy Lola.”

A total of 17 films will screen during the festival, with 12 U.S. premieres.
