Please note: Unfortunately, the 3pm screening of this film on Sunday, April 17 has been canceled. Part of THE CINEMA ACCORDING TO SERGE BOZON.

 Far From Mahattan is a bucolic satire in the midst of pictorial criticism. The more the satire burrows under the reserve upon which each character camps, the more Biette’s direction opens up small spaces of collective movement. A bush, a garden, a terrace versus an impromptu guitar, a military pensioner, a failed journalist: each space will find its character, and the film its mystery.”—Serge Bozon
