10/15-18: Betty Blue, Woody Allen & More!

10/13/09  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

BETTY BLUE is longer, sexier, crazier, hotter in three-hour "Director's Cut" Beatrice Dalle ignites the screen (and a few other things) in BETTY BLUE: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT. This newly-released version of Jean-Jacques Beneix's 1986 French film -- a tale of summertime l'amour fou involving a beach bum and a passionate young woman -- is 65 minutes longer than the orignal cult film. Dress for the heat and catch it Thursday or Friday night. No one under 18 admitted! Fans cry "Come back, Shane Meadows" and we happily oblige with his SOMERS TOWN British filmmaker Shane Meadows makes wonderfully funny and whimsical films, frequently about children. They get rave reviews and open in a few U.S. cities, where hardly any Americans go to see them. But Clevelanders have another chance to discover Meadows when we premiere his latest film SOMERS TOWN this weekend. Set in North London, it's the story of the friendship between a troubled runaway and a young Polish boy who hides him at his house. Once again it's gotten great reviews, so don't miss it Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. In fact, print this post and present it at the box office and see "Somers Town" for only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out.) Wartime rape is the subject of shattering German drama A WOMAN IN BERLIN A war movie with a feminist slant, A WOMAN IN BERLIN looks at the painful and long-taboo subject of wartime rape. Nina Hoss of "Jericho" plays a German civilian who is violated by victorious Red Army soldiers in the aftermath of her country's defeat during WWII. It's based on an actual diary and must be seen this Saturday or Sunday. Woody Allen plays the ubiquitous ZELIG, the man that time forgot Woody Allen never made another film like ZELIG -- and neither has anybody else (though "Forrest Gump" has a few similarities). Leonard Zelig (played by Allen) is a "human chameleon" who seemingly knew every celebrity and turned up everywhere during the Jazz Age of the 1920s. There are photos and films to prove it. Allen masterfully doctored vintage materials (pictures, newsreels, and recordings), without the aid of sophisticated CGI, to tell Zelig's improbable story. Watch the trailer here and then don't miss this 1983 classic in a 35mm print on Saturday or Sunday night. Mia Farrow co-stars.
