About the Event
Celebrate the end of another brilliant season of French cinema with our Closing Night reception! From the director of worldwide smash hit The Bélier Family comes #Iamhere, an endearing culture-clash comedy about a French chef seeking love and inspiration on the other side of the world.
6:00pm Reception includes drinks upon arrival.
Stéphane (Alain Chabat) is in a rut. Whether it’s his personal life or his career as the head chef at a regional restaurant, everything just feels like it’s on cruise control. One day on Instagram he meets a young Korean woman named Soo (Bae Doona) who he finds he can talk to with ease. Despite their differences, language barrier and living so far apart, they establish a strong bond. Smitten by this mysterious woman, on an impulse Stéphane boards a plane to Seoul to meet her. But when he arrives things don’t go according to plan. Is Soo who she says she is? Has Stéphane just made the biggest mistake of his life?
A winning blend of endearing culture clash comedy and an affectionate portrayal of somebody navigating a middle-life crisis, #Iamhere is a fun and big-hearted film about a man who may have loved not wisely, but too well.
