With so much content available in regard to online events, especially now during COVID-19 ISO times, it's hard to remember which events are ongoing. French movies at home with Alliance Française French Film Festival and in partnership with SBS On Demand is one such event.

Each week Philippe Platel, Artistic Director of the Alliance Française French Film Festival chooses an actor to highlight and this week it's Audrey Tautou. Last week it was Romain Duris and it seems logical that Tautou follows, since the two French actors often crossed each other's path throughout their careers.


Who could forget the charming Tautou in Amelie. The four films chosen this week are as follows, and you can find the movies easily by adding their ID number on the end of the following URL: https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/video/

ÉTERNITÉ - ID number: /1288867395856
HORS DE PRIX - ID number: /1419360323991
DE VRAIS MENSONGES - ID number: /169143363836
LE FABULEUX DESTIN D'AMÉLIE POULAIN - ID number: /31127107877

ÉTERNITÉ is the first French-language film from Vietnamese director Tran Anh Hung. It spans a century and is a portrait of a wealthy Gallic family and their many offsprings and the consistent and unavoidable cycle of passion, love, turbulence and sorrow.


HORS DE PRIX - a French comedy, according to director Pierre Salvadori, inspired by the 1961 Blake Edwards film, Breakfast at Tiffany's, starring another Audrey. A shy bartender is mistaken for a millionaire by a beautiful, scheming opportunist who abandons him when she discovers his true identity.

DE VRAIS MENSONGES - another French rom-com also directed by Salvadori, it was distributed in English-speaking countries as Beautiful Lies and Full Treatment. A comedy of errors when a love letter for Emilie from a smitten handyman ends up with Emilie's mother Maddy.

LE FABULEUX DESTIN D'AMÉLIE POULAIN - simply titled Amélie in video stores in Australia, Amélie is an innocent and naive girl in Paris who has her own sense of justice and goes about helping those around her, discovering love along the way. Charming and delightful, this is the film that brought Tautou to my attention.
