    Le français suit l’anglais. 
    Wallace (Radcliffe) is a medical school dropout who’s been burned by bad relationships. Just when all his friends, and even his goofy roommate Allan (Driver), seem to be finding love, Wallace decides to put romance on hold. Of course, that’s when he meets Chantry (Kazan), an animator who lives with her longtime boyfriend, Ben (Spall). The dreaded “F word” in this contemporary and hilarious romantic comedy is “friendship.” Wallace and Chantry form an instant connection, but are both committed to keeping things platonic, which might prove to be more difficult than either one of them imagined. “The F Word has charm to spare, and Radcliffe and Kazan are irresistible.”
    — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    2013. 102 min. English with French subtitles

    Wallace (Radcliffe) est un décrocheur de l'école de médecine qui accumule les échecs amoureux. Lorsque tous ses amis, même son nigaud de coloc Allan (Driver), semblent avoir trouvé l'âme sœur, Wallace décide de mettre l'amour en veilleuse. Bien sûr, c'est à ce moment-là qu'il rencontre Chantry (Kazan), une dessinatrice d'animation qui vit avec son amoureux de longue date, Ben (Spall). Le « F Word » du titre anglais de cette comédie romantique et contemporaine très drôle ne fait pas référence à ce que l’on pense, mais plutôt à « friendship », ou amitié. Une complicité s'installe immédiatement entre Wallace et Chantry, mais ils sont résolus à ne rester que de bons amis, ce qui pourrait s'avérer plus difficile qu'ils ne le croient. « Et si jamais est une comédie tout à fait charmante. Radcliffe et Kazan sont irrésistibles. »

    Courageous and emotionally powerful, Fire follows Sita (Nandita Das) and Radha (Shabana Azmi), two women living in New Delhi who are disappointed with their arranged marriages. While Sita is trapped in a relationship with her cruel and unfaithful husband, Jatin (Jaaved Jaafei), Radha is married to his brother, Ashok (Kulbhushan Kharbanda), a religious zealot who believes in suppressing desire. Lonely and lacking in love and passion, the two women begin to seek solace and friendship in each other, only to discover a passionate romantic love that must be kept secret. When it was released in the late 1990s, Fire’s incendiary subject matter led to protests and government interventions in India. Years later, the internationally acclaimed film is as seductive and moving as ever. The film won seven awards at film festivals around the world, including "Most Popular Canadian Film" at the Vancouver International Film Festival. 1996. 104 min. English only.

    L’anglais suit le français Après une périlleuse traversée du Pacifique, une famille de réfugiés vietnamiens s’installe à Montréal dans l’espoir de commencer une nouvelle vie. À travers une série de retours en arrière, le portrait complet de leur histoire se dévoile du point de vue du plus jeune membre de la famille, Tinh (Djandji), qui doit encore surmonter le traumatisme de ce qu’ils ont laissé derrière eux et qui a du mal à s’adapter à sa nouvelle vie et à sa nouvelle langue. Brillamment adaptée du roman éponyme de Kim Thúy, lauréat du prix du Gouverneur général, cette histoire de résilience face à l'adversité est saisissante et profondément émouvante.
    « Un film exceptionnel et magnifique. » – Isobel Grieve, Montréal Guardian
