French film : La fille du puisatier - Engelse Weergawe

Dear film friends

On 10 March we will be screening a film which was shown a few years ago: La fille du puisatier, the story of an unmarried young mother by Marcel Pagnol. This is a remake by Daniel Autheuil, who also stars in the role of the father. It is also Autheuil who directed the 2 remakes of the Marseille Trilogy which you have already seen, Marius and Fanny. In April we will be showing the last film in the trilogy, César, in the classic black and white version with Raimu in the role of César. So, two Pagnol movies in a row. A mini festival!

Hereby a short clip from the movie : YouTube

When: 10 March, 19:00

Where: Equitas Auditorium

Visitors: Please enter at the MAIN GATE in Nelson Mandela avenue for the Film. Show this invitation at the gate for easy access or tell security that you are entering campus to watch the film. Access for THIS event was arranged in advance with campus security.


The German Section cordially invites you to our first Film Evening for 2020. Mephisto (1981) will be screened on 3 March at 19:00 in the Equitas Auditorium. Mephisto is a drama film directed by world-renowned Hungarian filmmaker István Szabó, and is based on the 1936 novel of the same name by Klaus Mann. The film was awarded the 1981 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, as well as the Award for Best Screenplay at the Cannes Film Festival.

Mephisto follows a German stage actor who finds unexpected success with his performances in a Faustian play as the Nazis come into power in pre-WWII Germany. The actor, portrayed by Klaus Maria Brandauer, faces a dilemma: renounce his apolitical stance and comply with the Reich's doctrine, or face oblivion. But Faustian bargains never end well. What is the price of success?

Die Abteilung Deutsch lädt Sie herzlich zu unserem ersten Filmabend für 2020 ein. Mephisto (1981) wird am 3. März um 19.00 Uhr im Equitas Auditorium gezeigt. Mephisto ist ein Dramafilm des weltberühmten ungarischen Filmemachers István Szabó, basiert auf dem gleichnamigen Roman (1936) von Klaus Mann. Der Film wurde in 1981 mit dem Oscar für den besten fremdsprachigen Film ausgezeichnet, sowie den Preis für das beste Drehbuch bei den Filmfestspielen von Cannes.

Mephisto folgt einem deutschen Bühnenschauspieler, der mit seiner Schauspielleistung in einem Faustspiel unerwartete Erfolge erzielt, als die Nazis vor dem Zweiten Weltkrieg in Deutschland die Macht übernehmen. Der Schauspieler, gespielt von Klaus Maria Brandauer, steht vor einem Dilemma: auf seine apolitische Haltung zu verzichten und sich an die Reichslehre zu halten, oder sich der Vergessenheit zu stellen. Aber faustische Pakte enden nicht gut. Was ist der Preis des Erfolgs?

French Film - English Version

Dear Film Friends,

This is a gentle reminder that our French movie club starts on 11 February with a film to celebrate the last days of summer: Le grand bain, translated as Sink or swim in the English version. This is a feel-good movie especially for men, who do not always get good press. The results are plain to see: these 40-somethings are having an early mid-life crisis and are trying to work through it in the swimming pool. This is not, however, a movie about men working out in a gym. (How interesting would that be?!) It’s about Ordinary Men, ordinary people, with ordinary bodies and aspirations. And it may just be one of the most inspiring movies you will see in 2020.

Please bring your (male) friends!
