The F-F-F Series At Coos Bay Library Continues Friday

K-DOCK 92.9

The Friday Foreign Film series at Coos Bay library continues at 7pm on Friday, January 11th. The 2006 French comedy “The Valet” is this month’s feature.

French farce master Francis Veber (The Dinner Game) combines slapstick laughs with rapid-fire dialogue as he tells the tale of a Parisian valet unwittingly drawn into the affairs of a wealthy industrialist. François Pignon (Gad Elmaleh) is a simple valet employed by a restaurant. Unaware of the paparazzi stalking powerful businessman Pierre Levasseur (Daniel Auteuil) and his mistress, Elena (Alice Taglioni), the innocent passerby François wanders haphazardly into the frame. Realizing that the common man in the photograph may be Levasseur’s only hope of avoiding a nasty divorce from his wife, Christine (Kristin Scott Thomas), Pierre’s quick-thinking lawyer (Richard Berry) arranges for François to live with Elena in order to mislead the tabloids. Having been dumped by sweetheart Emilie (Virginie Ledoyen), François accepts the proposal, in the hopes he can win her back through jealousy. But Pierre’s jealousy flares, Elena grows frustrated with her new digs, and Christine might know more than she’s letting on.

The Friday Foreign Film series is held on the second Friday of the month and is free to the public. Many of these films are not rated and parental discretion is advised. For more information call 269-1101.
