• What we'll do July: JALOUSE / JEALOUS (2017) Comedy. 102min The most recent film by brothers Foenkinos, Karin Viard cleverly embodies Nathalie Pêcheux with class: an elegant literature teacher, mother of a future dancing "star" and socially brilliant woman. In short, everything in her life seems to be going smoothly. Despite the stability envied by many, Nathalie does not feel good at all, suddenly everything seems "different," to her. Her daughter and the young female prof at her University become ideal excuses for her to unload a feeling that threatens to devour her: jealousy. Far from the condescending sentimentality that accompanies many comedies of late, Jalouse intrigues and teases the things we know for certain. We all feel (men and women) a bit like Nathalie, though admitting it is far from easy. Trailer: Film shown in French with English subtitles. • What to bring $5 at the door for the public, free for AFNO members.
