Weekend Cinema Vol. 8: Catherine Deneuve vs Isabelle Huppert

Film, Drama

Time Out says

The Institut Franco-Japonais at Iidabashi continues its Weekend Cinema series with this May special featuring two of France's finest actresses. Catch Catherine Deneuve in François Truffaut's tropical plantation drama Mississippi Mermaid (1969), terribly remade as Original Sin with Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie in 2001, and Isabelle Huppert in Merci pour le chocolat (2000), a low-key but actually rather unnerving thriller directed by New Wave master of suspense Claude Chabrol.

Note that the films will be shown with Japanese subtitles only.
