Addition to Huppert Season

Breaking news from ACMI, and not yet on their website, is that another title has been added to the Focus on Isabelle Huppert season (Fri 29 June – Tue 10 July). Raúl Ruiz’s Comedie de l'innocence (Comedy of Innocence, 2000) will have its first ever theatrical screening in Australia at the season. That's a total now of 20 films screening for the retrospective. Ruiz's Klimt (2006) screened recently at ACMI and was my introduction to this acclaimed director's work.

“Adapted from the novel The Boy With Two Mothers by the Italian surrealist Massimo Bontempelli, Comédie de l'innocence is a subtly crafted psychological thriller.. were it in English, would appeal to the popular audience that enjoyed M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense and Alejandro Amenábar's The Others, both of which it resembles.” The Guardian, 2002
