Powerful memories of innocent and pure emotions resound in the classic Marguerite Duras love story L'Amant (The Lover), later made into an evocative film.

The movies on offer include L’amant (Lover), Lucky Luke, Tous Les Soleils, Ex De Ma Vie (L’), Gaston Lagaffe, and Cigare Au Miel. These movies are selected from MyFFF (My French Film Festival) - an annual film festival in France.

L’Amant is based on a true love story that took place in Cochinchina, or southern Vietnam in the 1920s.

Directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud and produced by Claude Berri, L’Amant is a 1992 drama film set in part of Indochina that is now Vietnam, during the 1920s.

The movie is adapted from the semi-autobiographical 1984 novel by Marguerite Duras, which was awarded the Prix Goncourt – a prestigious prize in French literature.

The movie tells the secret love affair between The Young Girl, a sharp, self-loathing French teenager living in Saigon, and the timid Chinaman, an heir of an ultra-rich Chinese-Vietnamese family from the Mekong area. The two are never named by name in the Duras novel or movie, but instead by these two terms.

Franco-Algerian director Kamir Ainouz' debut feature, 'Cigare au miel (Honey Cigar),' is a female coming-of-age tale set in the 1990s.

Selma, a 17-year-old French-Algerian girl of a secular family, lives in a posh Parisian neighborhood. When she falls for her classmate, Julien, while her parents are devising matchmaking plans, it dawns on her for the first time that patriarchy is far from absent in her life. A tale of sexual awakening, pulsating with teenage angst, that draws parallels between a young woman’s struggle for emancipation and the dismal political scenery in the early 90s Algeria.

Other movies copyrighted by DANET, including Thérèse Desqueyroux, À l'abordage, L'autre Dumas, Ma reum, Playlist, Calamity, and Crime d'amour will also be introduced to the audiences from Jan. 22.

À l'abordage or All Hands on Deck (2020) tells a story of an unlikely oddball trio bond during an impromptu trip to the French countryside on a foolhardy romantic mission.

The lively student Félix meets Alma, who is the same age as him, at a party. There is an immediate spark between the two and they end up spending the night together.

Their apparent bliss of love ends abruptly the very next morning when Alma goes off on vacation to the south of France with her family. Together with his best friend Chérif, Félix spontaneously decides to pay her a surprise visit.

Without money, the two of them take up the offer of a ride, thus including the clumsy driver Edouard in their adventure. Of course, nothing goes to plan.

À L’ABORDAGE is a light-footedly told story of one summer. The comedy shows great sensitivity towards its characters, who have to redefine their understanding of friendship and love.
