The Color of Lies

    Plot Summary

    In one of his finest late-career films, Claude Chabrol once again uses a murder mystery to expose the underlying tensions and deceptions of a close-knit community. When a 10-year-old’s violated body is found in the woods of a Breton fishing village, suspicion falls on an unsuccessful painter (Jacques Gamblin) whose wife (Sandrine Bonnaire) is tempted by the advances of a conceited TV personality (Antoine de Caunes in a brilliant performance). Characteristically, Chabrol is less interested inwhodunit mechanics than in dissecting a culture of lies—from advertising to adultery—that permeates modern society.

    Twice Born

    Plot Summary

    Academy Award® winner Penelope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Volver) and Emile Hirsch (Into The Wild, Killer Joe) star in TWICE BORN an epic family mystery that becomes a moving portrait of love, loyalty and the unbreakable bonds of motherhood in a time of war.  

    Based on the runaway European bestseller by Margaret Mazzantini, Twice Born begins as the Italian professor Gemma (Cruz) heads off on a summer vacation to the battle-scarred city of Sarajevo with her discontented teenaged son Pietro. She longs to show him the country where she fell passionately in love with his father, Diego (Hirsch) – but she is about to discover a long-hidden secret, one that will reveal far more to their knotted past than even her haunted memories can disclose.  

    Years before, when she herself was still a student, Gemma traveled to a very different Sarajevo, an electric, youthful city in the midst of the triumphant 1984 Winter Olympics.  It was then that she began a heated love affair with the young American photographer Diego, drawn to his intense zest for life and art.  For a time, she was compelled only by the all-consuming desire to start a family with him; but that desire would soon be complicated by her struggles to conceive, and her hopes of becoming a mother would in turn be interrupted by the coming of the brutal Balkan war and the longest violent siege of a city in modern history. In a series of transforming events, Gemma would finally make it back to Italy – but alone with an infant son who has never known the story of who he is or how he was born.  

    Roaming Sarajevo for the first time in 18 years, an unnerved Gemma at last begins to uncover the hidden truth of both the terrifying incidents and the remarkable acts of generosity that brought her and Pietro together -- and now to a crossroads. In the face of a mother’s ultimate moral dilemma, she finds the redemptive power of love.
