French comedy film to be screened at Town Hall

LES FEMMES du 6ème Étage, the light-hearted comedy from writer/director Philippe LeGuay will receive an exclusive screening in Town Hall Theatre this weekend.

The film will be shown this Sunday at 8.15pm by the Galway Film Society in association with the 2011 IFI French Film Festival touring programme and ACCESS Cinema.

Set in 1960s Paris, the films centres on stockbroker Jean-Louis (Fabrice Luchini ) and wife Suzanne (Sandrine Kiberlain ) who live the life of the wealthy. When their long-suffering maid quits, Suzanne, on the advice of her fashion-conscious friends, hires Spanish maid María (Natalia Verbeke ) to take her place.

Jean-Louis, intrigued by María, discovers a new world in his own building as he becomes increasingly involved in the lives and problems of the Spanish women working as domestic help in the building, improving their lot while causing friction at home.

Early booking is advised. Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 and
