3 Hearts

August 17-22
Runtime: 106 minutes
Rated: PG-13
Genre: Drama/Romance
Language: French (English subtitles)

A touching and tense drama about destiny, connections and passion, “3 Hearts” presents a new look at a classic love triangle. One night in provincial France, Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde) meets Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after missing his train back to Paris. Instantly and intensely drawn to one another, they wander through the streets until morning in rare, almost choreographed, harmony. A thwarted plan for a second meeting sends each in a separate direction: Sylvie reunites with her ex-boyfriend and leaves France; Marc falls in love and marries. What neither knows is that Marc’s new bride is Sylvie’s sister, Sophie (Chiara Mastroianni). Upon Sylvie’s return to France, the spark between her and Marc is reignited in ways that will forever alter the relationships between sister to sister and husband to wife. The “New York Times” has called the film “A touching, impeccably controlled drama.”



September 21-26
Runtime: 98 minutes
Rated: PG-13
Genre: Drama/History
Language: German (English subtitles)

A mystery of identity, illusion and deception unfolds against the turmoil of post-World War II Germany in “Phoenix,” the new film from director Christian Petzold (“Barbara,” “Jerichow”). Nelly (Nina Hoss), a German-Jewish nightclub singer, has survived a concentration camp, but with her face disfigured by a bullet wound. After undergoing reconstructive surgery, Nelly emerges with a new face, one similar but different enough that her former husband, Johnny (Ronald Zehrfeld), doesn’t recognize her. Rather than reveal herself, Nelly walks into a dangerous game of duplicity and disguise as she tries to figure out if the man she loves may have been the one who betrayed her to the Nazis. Evoking the shadows and haunted mood of post-war Berlin, “Phoenix” weaves a complex tale of a nation’s tragedy and a woman’s search for answers as it builds towards an unforgettable, heart-stopping climax.  “The cinematic equivalent of a page-turner...the ending is a legitimate corker,” “The New Yorker” has said.
