An all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, Cruella de Vil. (CRUELLA contains several sequences with flashing lights that may affect those who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy or have other photosensitivities.)
Sacré Bleu! From Luis Buñuel to Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Dendy presents a magnifique curation of four essential French films.
French cinema is often what French people are the most proud of (besides revolution and cheese). Hollywood may be the undisputed king of global film industries, but modern cinema owes its entire existence to the French. From the first time the Lumière brothers dazzled crowds with their Cinématographe at L’Eden, the world’s first cinema, to the founding of the Cannes Film Festival, France has pushed the envelope in what cinema is and what it will be.
Celebrating Bastille Day, and running July 1-28, the same month as the 2021 Festival de Cannes, Dendy has collated four iconic titles, each either hugely influential in their own right, modern classics exemplifying the titanic talents of France’s celebrated film industry, or just possessing a certain je ne sais quoi. Between romance and drama, comedy and adventure, experience these films as they were meant to be on the big screen and rediscover the artistic cinematography, creative directing, and the classic splendour of these truly essential masterpieces of French cinema.
At a tiny Parisian café, the adorable yet painfully shy Amélie (Audrey Tautou) accidentally discovers a gift for helping others. Soon Amelie is spending her days as a matchmaker, guardian angel, and all-around do-gooder. But when she bumps into a handsome stranger, will she find the courage to become the star of her very own love story?
A frigid young housewife decides to spend her midweek afternoons as a prostitute.
Biopic of the iconic French singer Édith Piaf. Raised by her grandmother in a brothel, she was discovered while singing on a street corner at the age of 19. Despite her success, Piaf's life was filled with tragedy.
After he becomes a quadriplegic from a paragliding accident, an aristocrat hires a young man from the projects to be his caregiver.
