La Famille Belier With French Conversation Night (optional) - Cert 12A

Showing on Tuesday June 20th for one show only at 6.30pm and then join us for a meal and some French conversation at 8.20pm for a three course set meal (see below) for £26pp

Join us for a special showing of La Famille Belier...

The Béliers are ordinary people: Rodolphe and Gigi are married, have two children and run their farm for a living. Ordinary people? Well, almost... since three of them, Dad, Mum and their son Quentin, are deaf. Which is not the case of the boy's big sister, Paula. And not only can she speak but her music teacher scouts her beautiful voice as well. He offers her to sit for the entrance exam of the Maîtrise de Radio France, a vocal elite choir in Paris. Her parents, who rely on her as their ears and mouth in the outside world, take the news badly. Paula, who hates the idea of betraying her parents and her brother, goes through a painful dilemma...

This film will be shown in French with subtitles in English and afterwards you are welcome to join us for a meal where a large party will be practising their French conversation skills gently aided by our language teacher Christianne.

You don't have to join the class. You are most welcome to see the film or book a meal without them but if you DO WISH to join them please let us know when you are booking. You will be made most welcome. Most of our French conversationalists are beginner/ intermediate level of ability.
