Domestic Life (La vie domestique)

This movie screening is a part of a program of Panorama Europe film festival of new european films. Known as Disappearing Act for its first five years, the newly re-named festival continues the mission of showcasing vital European filmmaking as distribution remains challenging for foreign language films in the United States. Panorama Europe gives New York audiences access to what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen or at all. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria and at the Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. It was programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator at Museum of the Moving Image.

Presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy 

France. Dir. Isabelle Czajka. 2013, 97 mins. Digital projection. US premiere. With Emmanuelle Devos, Julie Ferrier. This subtle, sophisticated satire trains an alternately sympathetic and sarcastic eye on a group of women leading lives of quiet desperation in the Parisian suburbs. At its center is Juliette (Emmanuelle Devos, Kings & Queen), a housewife with a boorish husband who’s struggling to balance banal domestic responsibilities with career ambitions. Meanwhile, real tragedy hovers in the margins, throwing this tale of petty bourgeois problems into sharp relief. Based on the best-selling novel Arlington Park by Rachel Cusk, La vie domestique offers a sly, trenchant commentary on modern motherhood.

Tickets: $12 public / free for Museum members. Order online or call 718 777 6800 to reserve tickets. For more information on membership and to join online, visit our membership page.
