Thursday 8 April at 6.30pm
Screening. As a prelude to the Franco-Irish Literary Festival, the Alliance Française has the pleasure of offering you the chance to attend a screening of the 1960 cult classic film Zazie dans le métro.
Louis Malle's fourth film, based on the novel by Raymond Queneau, is an absurdist wonder to behold, halfway between slapstick comedy and poetry. A sassy young girl embarks on a madcap Parisian adventure when she visits her transvestite uncle and takes a raucous sightseeing tour of the city.
The film will be introduced by UCD Lecturer Dr Laurent Marie.
Admission free but ticketed.
To book your ticket please contact the IFI box office: 01 679 34

The Writing Competition is now over.
We would like to thank you all for your participation. The Short Story-Poem Competition has been set up for the first time, this year and it has been a real success that we did not expect.
If you get a chance to go to the Festival, which is held at Dublin Castle on the 16th and 17th April and at the Alliance Française on the 18th of April, you will get the opportunity to read the 31 stories and poems in English and French of all candidates.
We all hope to see you at the Festival.

The shamblingly charismatic Louis-Do de Lencquesaing plays an unfailingly-enthused, financially-doomed, producer obviously modelled on the late Humbert Balsan. For a while, we’re hooked by the film’s brutally honest depiction of the sharp end of independent cinema, but as worries begin to weigh more heavily, the focus shifts to the
long-suffering wife (Alice Gautier) who is obviously wondering, like us, whether this masculine rage to build a legacy is actually depriving her and her children of a life in the meantime.
