#COLCOA '21 Official Line Up: BYE BYE MORONS / ADIEU LES CONS. Comedy.

Albert Dupontel’s brilliant, exuberant farce — about a 43-year-old hairdresser whose days are numbered from breathing in too much hairspray and a middle-aged computer nerd being put out to pasture — is, in truth, an extraordinarily moving expression of the deepest forms of love and the difficulties we often have giving voice to it. Beautifully crafted on every level, what begins as a high-concept romp and a delirious twist on the lovers-on-the-run genre evolves into an exceptional film, chock-a-block with poetry, tragedy, humanity and compassion. Bye Bye Morons scored a veritable grand slam at this year’s César Awards, with 13 nominations and seven wins, including prizes for Best Film, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and Best Supporting Actor (Nicolas Marié).

(AGE WARNING)
#COLCOA '21 Official Line Up: BLOODY ORANGES / ORANGES SANGUINES. Horror, comedy.

“The old world is dying, the new world struggles to be born: Now is the time of monsters.” Not for the faint of heart, Bloody Oranges begins as a cerebral satirical commentary on French society and political correctness, with a patchwork of vignettes weaving together the tales of an indebted retired couple eager to win a rock ‘n’ roll dance contest, a social-climbing lawyer, a tax-evading minister of economy, and a teenage girl determined to lose her virginity. But midway through the picture, it takes a sudden swerve into the realm of the unspeakable. A brutal, extremely black comedy, gleefully upping the stakes on our tolerance for violence, it’s not surprising that the film nabbed a Midnight Screening slot at Cannes this year.

#COLCOA '21 Official Line Up: BLACK BOX / BOITE NOIRE. Thriller.

Following in the tradition of Antonioni’s Blowup or Coppola’s The Conversation, director Yann Gozlan — and an excellent cast led by the ever-impeccable Pierre Niney — crafts a taut, suspenseful intrigue, unraveling the events behind a tragic incident, this time in the aeronautics industry. Matthieu, a brilliant young black-box analyst with an extraordinarily acute ear is charged with investigating a deadly plane crash. Progressively obsessed by inexplicable evidence that doesn’t add up, and spiraling further and further into the realm of paranoia, he gradually loses credibility at the BEA, the bureau that investigates aviation safety in France. So he’s forced to go rogue, risking both career and life, but determined to uncover the sordid truth.
