Place: The Albéitar.
Entry: free (until full capacity).
Literary adaptations taken to the cinema. It is the new cycle that El Albéitar proposes and that opens today, at 7:30 p.m., with the projection of the French film Three days and a life, directed by Nicolas Boukhrief. It is a film that adapts the homonymous novel by Pierre Lemaitreut, which the director turned into a mystery film that takes place in a small town in the Ardennes, where everyone knows each other and in which a disappearance of a child, followed of a great storm upsets the peaceful coexistence. The action begins in 1999, when Antoine, a 12-year-old boy who leads a quiet life in the town of Olloy, accidentally watches as the neighbor kills his dog after being run over, something that traumatizes him.
Desperate and furious, he breaks open a cabin he built in the woods thinking of a girl who doesn’t pay much attention to him either. Rémi, his 10-year-old neighbor who adores him and who always goes with him, tries to appease his anger, but receives a fatal blow to the head. At that moment, Antoine decides to hide the corpse and say nothing.
The cycle also includes three other titles: See you up there, by Albert Dupontel, adaptation of a novel by Pierre Lemaitreut, on January 19, in which two survivors of the trenches, one a magnificent illustrator and the other, a modest accountant, mount a scam about the monuments to the dead of the war. In France in the 1920s, the project becomes as dangerous as it is spectacular.
On the 26th it will be screened The girl without hands, by Sebástien Laudenbach, based on one of the lesser-known tales of the Brothers Grimm, a work of animation between the print and the shadow theater. A day later, El Albéitar will screen Polina, dance your lifeby Angelin Preljocaj and Valérie Müller, starring Juliette Binoche, which tells the story of a dancer who travels to Moscow to join the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet.
