Thursday, April 10, 2014, in Fahy 236, at 6 p.m., French & Slavic
Clubs will be showing the great movie, Farewell | L'Affaire Farewell in
French and Russian with English subtitles.
Christian Carion's nail-biting espionage drama in this 2009 movie is
based on little-known true events from the early 1980s that helped bring
down the Soviet Union.
In a neat bit of casting, the two leads of Farewell are played by
prominent European filmmakers. Emir Kusturica (the Serbian director of
1995's Underground) is Sergei Grigoriev, a KGB colonel who has become
completely disillusioned with Communism under Brezhnev; he leaks highly
classified documents to a French spy, Pierre (Guillaume Canet, an actor
director best known for helming 2006's Tell No One).
This top-secret information makes it way to the head of French intelligence, the CIA, and President Reagan.
Everyone is welcome!
French and Slavic food will be served!
