Partners in Crime / Associés contre le crime... (2012)
Prudence and Bélisaire Beresford have decided to take a well deserved rest, but when an extremely wealthy Russian heiress disappears, Prudence can not resist the call to danger... Bélisaire is obliged to follow his turbulent wife on an investigation that will lead them to a mysterious doctor who holds the secret of eternal youth...
The third section of the famous Beresford couple’s adventures created by Agatha Christie, Partners in Crime is directed by Pascal Thomas and starring Catherine Frot (The Page Turner) and André Dussollier (36, Lemming), mixes all ingredients of the detective comedy, often caustic, sometimes frightening and – we are assured – always hilarious.
The only listed extra is a trailer. Which is what we have here, only without the English subtitles...
You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet / Vous n'avez encore rien vu (2012)
From beyond the grave, celebrated playwright Antoine d’Anthac gathers together all his friends who have appeared over the years in his play Eurydice. These actors watch a recording of the work performed by a young acting company, La Compagnie de la Colombe. Do love, life, death and love after death still have any place on a theatre stage? It’s up to them to decide. And the surprises have only just begun...
From acclaimed director Alain Resnais (Hiroshima Mon Amour, Last Year in Marienbad, Providence) You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet is a cinematic adaptation of two plays by classic French playwright Jean Anhouilh; Eurydice and Cher Antoine. It stars a number of Resnais’ regulars including Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Quantum of Solace), Sabine Azéma (Wild Grass) and Pierre Arditi (Private Fears in Public Places).
