RUE MANDAR

DAY FOURTEEN OF THE 2014 NEW YORK JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL

THE LAST DAY OF A GREAT FESTIVAL 🙂

SignHere3 siblings reunite in Paris to bury their mother, mourn her passing, and then get on with the business of living.

“Emma,” the youngest (played by Sandrine Kiberlain) stands in for filmmaker Idit Cebula in this semi-autobiographical story (co-written with Emmanuelle Michelet).

As she mourns her now absent mother, Cebula also remembers life as a member of a Polish-Jewish immigrant family arriving in Paris right after WWII. Once their neighborhood was a bit of a French shtetl, but now that tiny old apartment is in a part of Paris that has suddenly become fashionable… (JLH: 3.5/5)

Note that Rue Mandar is a sequel–kinda sorta–to Cebula’s earlier film Two Lives Plus One.

In Two Lives Plus One, Emmanuelle Devos (who plays Emma’s older sister “Rosemonde” in Rue Mandar) stars as the Idit Cebula stand inClick HERE for my review of Two Lives Plus One.

Top Photo: A serious moment for middle sister “Rosemonde” (played by Emmanuelle Devos–who is most often the source of the story’s comic relief) as she signs papers in the office of her mother’s attorney.

Bottom Photo: The three siblings (Devos, Kiberlain & Richard Berry as “Charles”) walk together in the park. Cebula makes it is clear that, having done what was required to settle their mother’s affairs, they will now go their separate ways, & they will rarely see each other again in future.

Q: Does Rue Mandar pass the Bechdel Test? Yes!DigitalStampA

The sisters Emma and Rosemonde have various conversations about their mother, plus other legal and practical matters that have nothing to do with the men in their lives.
