New French comedy concludes 2013 Season



Splendid Cinema concludes its 2013 season with the latest film by French satirist François Ozon, In the House, on 8 Decemeber.


The follow up film to the international blockbuster Potishe, Ozon returns his caustic vision to the bourgoisie with In the House, in which a mild mannered high school teacher, Germaine (Potishe‘s Fabrice Luchini), encourages one of his creative writing students, Claude (Ernest Umhauer), to continue the serialized adventures he has been writing not realizing these stories are more fact than fiction. And Claude draws Germaine in to a very dangerous game of voyeurism and culpability.


In the House engages in the guilty pleasures of voyeurism through its multi-layered storytelling and visual construction which includes a few nice references to the work of Alfred Hitchcock, it all culminating in the closing scene –  an homage to Rear Window (1954).


Here’s the trailer:

The screening starts at Worcester Arts Workshop on Sansome Street at 6.30pm with the box office  open from 6pm. Tickets are £5 in advance or on the door with Café Bliss open for a pre-show treat.
