Exhibition "RED AND I" CLAUDINE KLOETZLI - APRIL 8TH

Exhibition "RED AND I" CLAUDINE KLOETZLI - APRIL 8TH
Opening Wed 8th April 7pm

Claudine is a swiss diplomat's spouse who finds inspiration by traveling and through her life experiences all over the world. She has developed her artistic passion over the years during her very different postings like Poland, Serbia or Australia or during her journeys through countries of the Maghreb and the Middle East. She paints between abstraction and representation and most of her artworks are portraits expressing the ephemeral nature of beauty and glamour. Her paintings represent ordinary and not so ordinary people in a range of motions and emotions, intriguingly soulful birds as well as rich in contrast skylines and desert landscapes. Claudine uses acrylic painting with different kinds of mediums, pastes, painting knives and special brushes, but also material of everyday life (corks, sponges, hammer, comb, teethbrush, rolls, sand, grids, etc). She has a developed taste for bright colors, particularly red, her favorite one...

Come enjoy this French movie with one the best casting of French cinema.

"French minister" de Bertrand Tavernier.
"Bertrand Tavernier’s bracing new film The French Minister (also known as Quai d’Orsay) is a screwball comedy set in the heart of French political life. Its central character is the incorrigible, indefatigable and utterly self-absorbed Foreign Minister (a bravura turn from Thierry L’Hermitte). He hires a hapless young man called Arthur (Raphael Personnaz), an anxious academic, to be his speechwriter, and we follow Arthur’s initiation into the jargon, eccentricities, rituals and realities of foreign affairs".

Thérèse Desqueyroux - Claude Miller - 2012

Thérèse Desqueyroux - Claude Miller - 2012

François Mauriac's mysterious novel of dark provincial passion has been turned into a closely observed, intriguingly oppressive and unventilated drama, whose suspense accumulates as the action proceeds with its heavy, deliberate tread. Audrey Tautou plays Thérèse herself in pre-war France: she's a free thinker and free spirit, but nonetheless someone with a lively appreciation of her family's riches and social standing, and how advantageous it would be to marry the dull, wealthy landowner Bernard Desqueyroux (Gilles Lellouche).
