Be the first to see Our Children
By Kernan Andrews
GALWEGIANS WILL be among the first in Ireland to see the multi-award winning Belgian/French film Our Children at a special screening in the city this weekend.
The Galway Film Society will show the film in the Town Hall Theatre on Sunday March 10 at 8.15pm.
Inspired by a true story, Our Children is a claustrophobic psychological drama in which family closeness is pushed to the extremes. Murielle and Mounir move in together with Mounir’s surrogate father, Dr Pignet. An air of menace begins to suffocate the couple as Pignet controls the household like a puppeteer. The tension escalates as the doctor becomes more domineering.
The film won the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival; the Best Narrative Feature award at the Tribeca Film Festival; and Best Actress at Cannes 2012.
Tickets are €8.50/6.50 from the Town Hall (091 - 569777, www.tht.ie)
