Years before Helen Keller, Marie Heurtin was born in France, deaf and blind, in 1885. This moving film, based on true events, finds her when she is 14 years old, unable to communicate with parents who can't bring themselves to commit her to an asylum, as doctors advise them to.

In desperation, they send her to an institution in the country where nuns take care of deaf girls and, despite the Mother Superior's skepticism, a young nun (played by Isabelle Carre) devotes herself to looking after the "little wild animal." Sister Marguerite soon makes it her mission to use her faith and determination to help Marie emerge from the darkness into which she was born.

"An assured, emotionally satisfying French offering. Carré...plays her determined character with moving obstinacy and grace." – Peter Debruge, Variety

The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared

May 29 to Jun 3
Friday to Wednesday 6:00pm ONLY!

Dir. Felix Herngren - 2013 - 114m - Sweden - In English, French, German, Swedish, Italian, Russian with English Subtitles

Powered by the antics of a mischievous centenarian on the run, blockbuster comedy The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared abounds with irreverent charm. After a long and colorful life working in munitions and getting entangled in the Spanish Civil War, the Manhattan Project, and other definitive events of the 20th century, Allan Karlsson finds himself stuck in a nursing home. Determined to escape on his 100th birthday, he leaps out of a window and onto the nearest bus, kicking off an unexpected journey involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some wicked criminals, and an elephant named Sonya. Like an unruly Nordic cousin of Forrest Gump, Allan’s youthful escapades and current adventures weave together into an offbeat treat for anyone who?s young at heart. Starring beloved comedian Robert Gustafsson, this fanciful spin on world history is based on a best-selling novel and also the highest-grossing Swedish film of all time.

“An absurdist comic fable about an ordinary man who keeps stumbling into extraordinary circumstances.” — David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“The humor of this film is delivered with such deadpan panache that it’s irresistible. Has a good eye for the madcap, and maintains a constant breezy mood.” — Demetrios Matheou, Screen Daily

NO ONE UNDER 17 ADMITTED!  100% POLITICALLY INCORRECT!

Bully prison warden Bill Boss (Dieter Laser), leading a big state prison in the US of A, has a lot of problems; his prison statistically has the highest amount of prison riots, medical costs and staff turnover in the country. But foremost he is unable to get the respect he thinks he deserves from his inmates and the state Governor (Eric Roberts). He constantly fails in experimenting with different ideas for the ideal punishment to get the inmates in line, which drives him, together with the sizzling heat, completely insane. Under threats of termination by the Governor, his loyal right hand man Dwight (Laurence R Harvey) comes up with a brilliant idea. A revolutionary idea which could change the American prison system for good and save billions of dollars. An idea based on the notorious Human Centipede movies, that will literally and figuratively get the inmates on their knees, creating the ultimate punishment and deterrent for anyone considering a life of crime. Having nothing to lose, Bill and Dwight create a jaw-dropping 500-person prison centipede.

A trailer will be forthcoming ... check back here shortly.
