7 movies – 7 different stories of love between people. Love is the most sacred emotion that brings people together. Not only exploiting the love of the couple, Love movie Week at the French Cultural Center in Hanoi – L’Espace also focuses on many different angles of love and puts it in separate contexts: in wartime, in culturally distinct relationships, in the teenagers’ private world, in family relationships, and more. Cheerful stories, quiet moments, romantic scenes and intermittent tensions, all will converge in Love Movie Week.
The opening of the event is the story of a complex and funny love triangle called Caprice by director Emmanuel Mouret. Having won the Best Film Award at the Cabourg Film Festival 2015, the film chose to explore the sensitive topic among lovers but in a different approach, with a unique comedy. Clément, the normal teacher, suddenly becomes trapped in a love affair with two beautiful girls: one side is Alicia, the famous actress whom he has long admired; on one side is Caprice, a young girl with a modern lifestyle who is addicted to him. The film promises to bring the audience moments of relaxation gently and comfortably.
In the second screening of Love Movie Week, the audience will experience many ups and downs of emotion in Jean-Paul Rouve’s nostalgic film: Memories (French name: Les souvenirs). Following Romain in the journey to find the grandmother who escaped from the nursing home, the film is like a trip to the memory, evoking the deep emotions in the minds of each person. The film is the flow of time through the emotional circuit of family love as well as affection of couples.
Meet Catherine Deneuve and actress Yves Montand in Lovers Like Us (French name: Le sauvage) by director Jean-Paul Rappeneau.

From ironic encounters to romance stories, the film will bring audiences laughter as well as insightful lessons about the meaning of life.
Adapted from the novel of the same name by the writer of romantic stories – Philippe Vilain, Not My Type (French name: Pas son genre) directed by Lucas Belvaux is a good combination between Belgian star Émilie Dequenne and the French comedian Loïc Corbery. The film narrates the strange love story between the profound philosophy professor specializing in reading Emile Zola, Marcel Proust, Charles Baudelaire and the cute barber who loves reading romance novels, pop music, idol Jennifer Aniston. The cultural and social differences have attracted the two people together but also made them encounter many conflicts after a long time of getting to know each other. The film will help audiences have a more concrete and vivid view of how sincere love can erase the cultural and social barriers between the two.
The Red Sky (French name: Ciel rouge) is an excellent work by director Olivier Lorelle about the love of a couple in a situation of siege war. The story is about a young French soldier who was sent to an Indochina battlefield to fight Vietnamese guerrillas. Here, he realized the cruel and inhumane truth of the colonial war when he tortured and killed a Viet Minh guerrilla, whom he fell in love with. The two decided to flee together into the forest and join the guerrilla team against the French army. In this film, director Olivier Lorelle cleverly weaves the message of human awareness and the immortal spirit of women on the background of a war of nonsense.

To close the Love Movie Week, the French Institute in Hanoi would like to introduce to you the film Indochina (French name: Indochine) directed by Régis Wargnier. This is the famous film that has won the Oscar and Golden Globe awards for the category of the best foreign-language film. Indochina revolves around the life of Eliane and her adopted daughter Camille. Fate ironically, the mother and son fell in love with young navy officer Jean-Baptiste Le Guen.
