Intellectual athlete: Tom's aptitude for maths and ineptitude on the ball is a bitter disappointment to his rugby-loving father Jo until former All Black Jonah turns up. Film with rugby theme to screen This year's French Film Festival will hold a special attraction for rugby aficionados. Le Fils at Jo (Jo's Boy) is the story of Jo Carnavaro, the third in a dyn- asty of sporting legends in France's rugby-mad south-west. To Jo's huge disappointment his son Tom has more interest in math- ematics than sport. A former All Black called Jonah comes out of left field to save the day. Among the other offerings are Les Bien-Aimes (Beloved) featuring French cinema legend Catherine Deneuve. The Look: un autoportrait a travers les autres is a look at the world through the eyes of Charlotte Rampling, a significant actor in Eng- lish, French and Italian cinema as well as Hollywood movies. Deux Jours a Paris (Two Days in Paris) is a French/American couple's attempt to re-ignite their romance in Paris. Julie Delpy directs and plays a lead role. Ensemble, c'est tout (Hunting and Gathering), directed by Claude Berri and starring Audrey Tatou, is a romantic fable of four lost souls in Paris. The 2012 French Film Festival opens at the Paramount Theatre on March 8 with La Guerre est Declaree (Declaration of War) which examines the lives of film-maker Valerie Donzelli and writer Jeremie Elkaim as they deal with their infant child's real-life brain tumour. The festival runs until March 25. For more information visit www.frenchfilmfestival.co.nz or to book call the Paramount on 384 4080.
