THE SUICIDE SHOP by Patrice Leconte (French: Le Magasin des suicides) 

Sunday / Nedjelja 25.08 , 11:30h

About the director:

French filmmaker Patrice Leconte is as notable for his refusal to be easily categorized as he is for his long and productive career. Since making his major directorial debut in 1975 with Les Vécés Étaient Fermés de L’Intérieur, Leconte has established himself as one of France’s most respected directors, at ease tackling subjects ranging from mental illness to sexuality to canny deconstructions of wit and society. He received particular acclaim for his 1996 film Ridicule, winning the admiration of an international audience while furthering his reputation as one of the French cinema’s most treasured figures. Leconte’s filmography includes Ma femme s’apelle reviens (1982), Tandem (1987), Tango (1993), Ridicule (1996), The Girl on the Bridge (1999), Félix and Lola (2001), Intimate Strangers (2004), My Best Friend (2006), Voir la mer (2011) and many others.

Synopsis: 

Imagine a city where life has grown so sad that people have no taste for living, a city where the most successful shop is the one that sells poisons and ropes to help you end your life. But the owner has just had a new baby, a son named Alan who is the embodiment of “joie de vivre”. What will become of the Suicide Shop in the face of Alan’s relentless good cheer, optimism and determination to make the customers smile?

O redatelju:

Francuski filmaš Patrice Leconte jednako je poznat po tome da ne voli svrstavanja u ladice, kao i po dugoj i plodonosnoj karijeri. Od kada je 1975. godine snimio svoj redateljski prvijenac Les Vécés Étaient Fermés de L’Intérieur, Leconte je postao jedan od najuglednijih francuskih redatelja koji s lakoćom obrađuje cijeli niz tema; od mentalnih bolesti, do mudre dekonstrukcije uma i društva. Posebne pohvale je primio za svoj film Ridicule iz 1996. godine. Ovim filmom zadobio je divljenje međunarodne publike i potvrdio svoj ugled kao jednog od najdragocjenijih redatelja francuske kinematografije.

Sadržaj:

Zamislite grad u kojemu je život postao toliko tužan da su ljudi izgubili volju za životom, grad u kojemu je najuspješnija trgovina ona koja prodaje otrove, užad koji služe ljudima da okončaju svoje živote. Međutim, vlasnik trgovine je dobio dijete, sina imena Alan koji je utjelovljenje radosti života. Što će se dogoditi s trgovinom samoubojstva kada se suoči s Alanovim neumornim veseljem, optimizmom i odlučnošću da nasmije svaku mušteriju?

Fanni has had enough of money and leaves to buy a tent. Anna has had enough of pigs and leaves the farmer- one needle in the hay. In the new game Fanni rolls the dice while Anna does not think twice, she knocks down all the pins. Together they raise their voice and shape one mutual tune. Differences attract each other, and jolly they move on – together on their distinct journeys, where their dreams are set- towards a new found liberty.

Dok je radio kao pomoćnik redatelja na Paradise- Trilogy Ulricha Seidla prvo je pronašao malariju, a potom Isusa. Slonovi su sada njegove najdraže životinje.

Zajedno podižu glas i oblikuju zajedničku melodiju. Razlike se privlače i radosno nastavljaju dalje-zajedno na različitim putovanjima gdje su njihovi snovi jasni- prema novo pronađenoj slobodi.
