Montparnasse and south Paris

Off the beaten tourist track, this multidisciplinary arts centre and cinema is known for its leftfield documentaries, shorts, gay repertoire and productions from developing nations.  Regular debates, poetry nights, concerts and a restaurant complete the programme.

The restaurant alone is worth the detour, and indeed most of the clientele seem to skip the avant-garde art and head straight for the shady garden. The menu offers a satisfying range of yuppie salads and classic meat dishes, all reasonably priced in the €15-18 range (the lunch menus throw in a starter or dessert for free). The mousse au chocolat (€7.50) is a must, though its size makes it about as hard to digest as some of the films shown inside. A juicy cocktail menu (€8), extensive wine list and elaborate Sunday brunch (€26 – book ahead) complete the picture. Make sure to sit outside if the weather allows it, as the indoor decor verges on the tacky side.

    ‘Promised Land’ might have American director Gus Van Sant’s name next to the title, but in the execution it feels like less of a director’s project than films such as ‘Last Days’ or ‘Elephant’. It’s a good-natured but fatally underpowered drama wr...

    Jokes about whether or not you can crack it will inevitably follow ‘The Lobster’ into cinemas – where audiences will have to decide whether the film’s deadpan weirdness and high-concept ruminations on love and life are for them or not. This is the...

    A reinvigorating reminder of what indie filmmaking can—and should—do, this bracingly brilliant new movie from writer-director Sean Baker tells an LA story so florid and electric that it feels like a Pedro Almodóvar remake of 'Crank'. Set over the ...

    Worse things could have happened to the first ‘Peanuts’ movie to be released in cinemas for 35 years. Unlike poor ol’ Charlie Brown, it doesn’t trip up too often. Though any mileage gained by staying true to Charles M Schulz’s gentle, somewhat whi...

    This deadly serious, sombre Israeli film from Amos Gitai (‘Free Zone’) marks 20 years since the assassination of Israeli PM Yitzhak Rabin, resurrecting and reconstructing the air of fanaticism and zealotry that led to his death. Using a lively and...
