The Adelaide Show
240 - French Film Festival
March 28, 2018 Steve Davis

This week's episode of The Adelaide Show, French Film Festival, celebrates that aspect of French cinema that is best captured in this quote by the charismatic actor Emmanuelle Beart: Very often with an American movie, the end is very happy and you just feel good when you go out. When you go to a French movie, it's kind of like, oh!, and you can't go out; you're stuck in your chair. It goes so deeply inside of the heart. Our guest is Dr Ben McCann, Associate Professor and Head of French Studies at the University of Adelaide. Another special guest is Steven Marshall (Stephen Marschall). This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is a wine from France! In IS IT NEWS, Nigel challenges us on stories about French cinema. In 100 Weeks Ago, we take you back to our interview with Alisson and Peter Marsland, parents of the late, Richard Marsland, who took his own life in 2008 after a heightening struggle with depression. And in the musical pilgrimage ... Todd has a song by Wing Defence. And please consider becoming part of our podcast by joining our Inner Circle. It's an email list.
