Time Out says

Coming to Barcelona from March 14 to 21, 2019, it's the second edition of the French film festival 'Ohlalà!', which pays tribute to French cinema and its diverse ways of looking at the world. But first, the French Institute puts on a special retrospective of the Cannes Quinzaine des Réalisateurs (Directors' Fortnight), from October 19 to 21. French speakers and Francophiles won't want to miss this 'anniversary tour' of the French film festival that's screening six movies that have won awards in the famous independent section at Cannes during the last four decades.

Friday the 19th you can see 'Les garçons et Guillaume, à table!' ('Me, Myself and Mum'), by Guillaume Galienne (6.30pm), and 'J'ai tué ma mère' ('I Killed My Mother'), from Xavier Dolan (9pm); on Saturday the 20th, it's 'Toto le héros' ('Toto the Hero'), by Jaco Van Dormael (6.30pm), and Thomas Cailley's 'Les combattants' ('Love at First Sight') (8.30pm); and on Sunday you can see Deniz Gamze Ergüven's 'Mustang' (6.30pm), and 'Le déclin de l'empire américain' ('The Decline of the American Empire'), from Denys Arcand (8.30pm).
