…While this may all sound heavy, the film is gentle and good humoured. The soundtrack complements the scenes well, and the scenery is exquisite

Maria into Life (Maria Reve)

21 OCTOBER: 3 pm & 7 pm
93 Mins | France | Comedy |


Maria’s marriage of twenty-plus years has grown stale; she feels unappreciated, and her life has fallen into a rut. Then she begins her new job as the cleaner at a school of fine arts, and befriends the school‘s whimsical janitor, and one of the art students. These two quite different souls awaken her to how she can expand the boundaries of her dull and routine life, and make it more exciting and alive than she had ever expected.  Maria’s coming-to-life happens gradually and in unexpected ways. It is presented with nuance and humour, at times poking fun at the pretentiousness of art and those who practise it.  Light-hearted but also emotionally rich, this film won the audience award at the 2022 International Festival of Francophone Film.

Doors Open at 6 pm.
Movie starts at 7:00 pm licensed bar, tea/coffee, slices
