Two brides and One wedding


Join us for a Free Movie Night at the Czech Center Museum Houston featuring the film, “Two Brides and One Wedding.”

Marie is a typical city single. Although she is a successful TV moderator, in the realm of relationships she has a talent to attract only idiots. On the contrary, her sister has already found the right man and they plan to get married. When Marie arrives to their home town to visit her family, she meets her old flame, Jiří. Soon it is clear that their mutual feelings are still alive. But the whole thing has a catch, as Jiří is the man her sister is about to marry.

Five Funny French Films: The Baker’s Wife (La femme du boulanger)


The return of Five Funny French Films classics!

Playwright-turned-auteur Marcel Pagnol (The Marseille Trilogy) draws a vivid portrait of a close-knit Provençal village where the marital woes of a sweetly deluded baker (Raimu, heralded by Orson Welles as “the greatest actor who ever lived”) snowball into a scandal engulfing the entire town. The New York Times said, “certainly no other breed could have told it so cutely, with such disarming good humor, with such tolerance and wit.”

New 4k restoration by La Compagnie Méditerranéenne de Films - MPC with the support of the CNC and Arte France.

“A perfect movie.” —filmmaker Orson Welles

“Raimu’s baker is an acting classic – a true tragicomic hero.” —film criticPauline Kael

“One of the very greatest pictures ever made: pagan, poetic, and incomparably witty. If the cinema could only live up to its standards, we should all very soon be spoiled.” —The New York Times

“The best entertainment to be seen at the moment in any cinema. The treatment is so authentic that it seems over far too soon, and the acting is superb . . . But the human actors are only part of the general setting – the well and the olive trees and the crude, crowded church and the Cercle Republicain with the tin advertisements, and the hunter going out in the dawn with his dog and his gun while the baker sleeps in his trough beside the oven.” —author Graham Greene

“Raimu makes of his conjugal love, of his overpowering grief at his wife’s absence, and of his resulting lapse into outrageous drunkenness, an epic portrait of a man, simple and human, and he gives Giono’s dialogue that poetic translucence which is its just due. . . No review can give a satisfactory explanation of the film’s beauty. Of all films since [Jean] Vigo’s L’Atalante, it remains gratefully in the memory.” —film historian Basil Wright

Five Funny French Films: The Trouble with You (En liberté!)


Police detective Yvonne (Adèle Haenel) discovers that her dead husband was not the police hero for which he is being memorialized. Deeply corrupt, he took bribes and put an innocent man in prison. Yvonne aims to right her husband’s injustices and starts by helping wrongly convicted Antoine (Pio Marmaï) as he is released from prison. But she pretends to be a prostitute and ends up attracted to the charming ex-convict who has a hard time remaining a law-abiding citizen. Audrey Tatou costars. Nominated for nine César Awards, including Best Picture.

“Audiences familiar with Haenel’s intense presence in films like the Dardenne brothers’ The Unknown Girl or Robin Campillo’s BPM (Beats Per Minute) will be surprised to see the grace and buoyancy she brings to a character with delightful shades of the classic screwball heroine.” —Hollywood Reporter
