The Suicide Shop Le Magasin des suicides

Patrice Leconte / France, Canada, Belgium / 2012 / 79 min / Slovene subtitles, French / 13+

IMDb Official website

The DVD of the film is available in our Bookshop. (List of available DVDs in Slovene only)

Imagine a shop that for generations has sold all the accoutrements of the perfect suicide. 

This family business prospers in all its bleak misery, until the day it encounters true joie de vivre in the shape of the owners' younger son, Alan. What will become of The Suicide Shop in the face of Alan's relentless good cheer, optimism and determination to make the customers smile?

The film is based on Jean Teule's novel of the same name. Director Patrice Leconte comments on adapting it:

I took so much freedom with the book that I feared Jean Teulé would be perplexed, even offended. After reading the script, he called me: 'I like it very much because it is completely different and yet I find everything I have written. This film will be yours as much as mine, as if we had both written it'. It confirmed me in my conviction that I hadn't just illustrated Jean Teulé's book, but that I had adopted it as much as adapted it.

Antigone - How Dare We! Antigona - Kako si upamo!

Jani Sever

Sunday, 03. 07. 2022 / 20:00 / Small Hall

A film based on Slavoj Žižek’s play The Three Lives of Antigone. Praised as the heroic rebel against state power, Antigone seems to be a convenient ideal for the present age. But is Antigone truly an emancipatory hero – or is she part of the problem? It is time to lay bare the “disgusting murmur of life” in the world of right-wing fundamentalism, climate change, and stark inequality. Antigone – How Dare We! stands for political drama that addresses the most vital questions of our time.
