Film Under the Stars 2021

On midsummer nights, film stars come to life in the courtyard of Ljubljana Castle. A programme of twelve avant premieres and this season’s best films has been put together by Kinodvor, in collaboration with the City of Ljubljana and Ljubljana Castle. Until 7 August, at 21:30.

How to Be a Good Wife La bonne épouse

Martin Provost

Alsace, the 1960s. Running a household and bending to conjugal duty is what Paulette Van Der Beck ardently teaches in her “housekeeping school” for girls. Her certainties are shaken when she finds herself widowed and ruined. But then her first love reappears. What if the good wife became a free woman? The spirit of May ’68 is certainly in the air… A comedy with Juliette Binoche in the lead.

Martin and three of his friends, all weary high school teachers, embark on an experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday. If Churchill won WW2 in a heavy daze of alcohol, who knows what a few drops might do for them and their students?

Hvala bogu, da obstaja Kinodvor, in upam, da bo tako tudi v prihodnosti, pa da se bo res širil še kam drugam, ker se mi to zdi nujno.

Branko Završan, igralec

Hura za KINODVOR in za vse prijatelje mestnega kina v Ljubljani. Veselim se kinopredstav in tega, da vračamo v tisti del življenja, ki nas notranje bogati. Uspešno naprej!
