FALL SCHEDULE 2017

THE TEACHER


Slovak Republic, 2017; 102 min. NR. Subtitles. D: Jan Hrebejk; SP: Petr Jarchovsky.

On their first day of class in 1983, Czechoslovakian middle school students answer innocently when their new teacher asks them what their parents do for a living. The parents wish they hadn’t raised such honest children when it soon becomes apparent that the teacher (Zuzana Maurery) is basing her grades on how handy the parents are in doing chores for her – and she’s also a high-ranking official of the Communist Party.

Reviews

“A sardonic, richly seriocomic morality play that uses a delicate touch to explore why communism never seems to work out in the long run”- Indiewire.

“Ms. Maurery has great fun with the character, a tricky part because [the teacher] nearly always maintains a kindhearted veneer, even at her most venal”- NY Times.

LOST IN PARIS


France 2017; 83 min. NR. English and subtitles. D/SP: Dominique Abel & Fiona Gordon.

The drab life of a Canadian librarian becomes a fantastical farrago of absurd misadventures when she gets a letter pleading for her help from her 88-year-old aunt living in Paris.

Reviews

“Nonsensical by design, a comedy of the absurd that’s always entertaining and occasionally pure” – Wall Street Journal.

“A throwback to a kinder, gentler comic sensibility combining the surreal, the whimsical and vaudeville, [it] successfully delights as two misfits continue to find themselves beholden to the kind of destiny that only graces visitors to the City of Lights”- The Film Stage.

Reviews

“One of those movies that could be about anything and you’d watch, so enjoyable are its lead actors” – Arizona Republic.

“A moving immersion into the mysteries of time, memory and mortality”- Boston Globe.

The time: tomorrow. The place: Our own world, with Artificial Intelligence added.

They have all the time in the world…

Reviews

“A contemplative, intimate and poetic chamber piece, superbly told and nimbly acted, with equal parts nuance and empathy” – TheWrap.

“Beautiful truths and half truths abound in Michael Almereyda’s quietly shimmering new movie”- LA Times.

“There’s more going on in this movie’s 90-plus minutes than in many summer blockbusters nearly twice its length” – NY Times.

TUESDAY OCTOBER 24-SUNDAY OCTOBER 29- CINEMA 320 TAKES A ONE-WEEK BREAK

ONE WEEK AND A DAY


Israel 2017; 98 min. NR. Subtitles. D/SP: Asaph Polonsky.

For Eyal (Shai Avivi) and his wife Vicky (Jenya Dodina), the end of the traditional Jewish week of mourning for their late son is just the beginning of the processing of their grief – a roller coaster of chaotic emotions, sometimes painful, other times painfully funny.

Reviews

“The comedy here comes from confusion, ineptitude, and alienation. It comes from People’s defenses being way, way down. It doesn’t cheapen the tragedy. It grounds it, sometimes in the mud”- NY Magazine.

“Keeps an impeccable balance between absurdity and sadness, comedy and heartbreak”- LA Times.

“Succeeds in recreating that precise feeling, as hard to articulate as it is commonly felt, where exhaustion wears down any line between emotions.” – The Wrap

THE DIVINE ORDER


Switzerland 2017; 96 min. NR. Subtitles. D/SP: Petra Volpe.

In the year of 1971 AD, human beings twice walk on the moon; but in Switzerland, ostensibly one of the world’s most advanced countries, half of the human beings – the female half – still aren’t allowed to walk into a polling place and cast a vote. The popular agitation over suffrage makes an unlikely firebrand out of a dutiful young housewife (Marie Leuenberger) in a small village, who had only started out by wanting her husband’s permission to get a part-time job.

Reviews

“An unexpected delight” – Village Voice

“A mainstream crowd-pleaser adept at inspiring and amusing in equal measure”- Variety

WHITE SUN


Nepal 2017; 89 min. NR. Subtitles. D: Deepak Rauniyar; SP: David Barker, Deepak Rauniyar

A disenchanted rebel returning home to his village after Nepal’s civil war must reacquaint himself with the loyalist townsfolk he left behind, while at the same time organizing the funeral of his father with his brother, who was on the opposite side in the recent fighting.

Reviews

“Skillfully manipulating romantic and social frictions which in lesser hands might have come across as soapily melodramatic, Rauniyar and Barker construct a parable-like tale whose allegorical aspects are there for those who wish to find them. But their priority is the creation of believable characters in a pungently atmospheric setting” – Hollywood Reporter.

“Deepak Rauniyar’s outstanding second feature is a powerful drama about a people and a nation at the crossroads”- Variety.

Days/times

Tuesday Nov 14 – 7:30PM;
Wednesday Nov 15 – 7:30PM;
Sunday Nov 19 – 1, 2:50PM.
Note: No show Saturday night.
