"Gabrielle" is absorbing cinema as art

Oct. 8, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Kalamazoo Film Society presents "Gabrielle," a story of love and marriage in early 20th century France, Friday through Sunday, Oct. 13-15, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

Little Theatre show times for "Gabrielle" are 7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 2:30 and 5 p.m. Sunday. Because of traffic anticipated for WMU's homecoming football game, KFS will not offer a Saturday afternoon screening for this film. Admission is $5 and $3 for students. The film is presented in French with English subtitles. It is not rated, but deals with adult themes.

Starring Isabelle Huppert and Pascal Greggory, "Gabrielle" is set in upper-class, turn-of-the 20th century France and is based on Joseph Conrad's "The Return," a story of a couple whose marriage is breaking down. The combination of atmospheric settings and painterly camerawork makes "Gabrielle" a magical and absorbing piece of cinema.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's historic East Campus. There is free off-street parking behind the theatre. For more information, call the movie line at (269) 387-8221, or visit KFS at www.kalfilmsociety.net,
