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.

Amidst a worldwide pandemic that causes sudden amnesia, Aris finds himself enrolled in a recovery programme designed to help patients build new identities. Prescribed daily tasks to create new memories and document them on camera, Aris slides back into ordinary life, meeting Anna… Enigmatic, larded with deadpan humour, this multi-awarded directorial debut had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

The Assistant follows one day in the life of Jane who has landed her dream job as an assistant to a powerful film mogul. As Jane follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colours every aspect of her work day. This gripping debut is a searing indictment of a system that perpetuates workplace harassment.

Julio and Ana have been together for over 15 years. Daily conflicts are the norm. Their upstairs neighbours, Salva and Laura, are a slightly younger couple they welcomed with open arms when they moved into the building, but the constant moaning and groaning coming from their apartment has become a source of argument for Julio and Ana. One day, Ana decides to invite them over…

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?
