WHAT: I have not seen it, so let me quote from the always-perceptive acquarello:
Stitching together pieces of a seemingly rootless and unremarkable life as itinerant worker, nursing home volunteer, and insecure lover, Chéreau creates a lucid and provocative exposition on the ephemeral - and searing - nature of the search for human connection.WHERE/WHEN: 7:30 PM tonight and 5:00 PM Wednesday at the Vogue. UPDATE: A reader informs me it also screens March 20th at the Camera 3.
WHY: The Vogue screens this as part of the local stop of a touring package of contemporary French films entitled Rendez-Vous with French Cinema. Though the series began on Friday, all but one of the titles play at least once more before Thursday, including Claudine Nougaret & Raymond Depardon's Journal de France, Jacques Doillon's You, Me & Us, and Patrice Leconte's The Suicide Shop.
HOW: I'm not sure. The Bay Area Film Calendar doesn't list any of the Rendez-Vous with French Cinema screenings on its site, but that may be because the series snuck up on its compiler of local film-on-film screenings as quickly as it did on me. UPDATE: A reader informs that all these screenings will indeed be digitally projected.
