    MY POLISH HONEYMOON/LUNE DE MIEL ( Élise Otzenberger 2018)

    Capsule only.


    A Parisian couple of Polish Jewish origins take a trip to Poland, visiting Holocaust sites, as a kind of belated honeymoon. There is an attempt to mix the serious material with a jocular tone and weave in comic characters, which doesn't work so well. The French critics were not so happy given the overall press rating of 3.0 on alloCiné. This reminded me of what made Benigni's celebrated Life Is Beautiful hard to swallow. Some may differ.

    Saturday July 20, 2019 6:10 p.m. CineArts
    Tuesday July 23, 2019 8:55 p.m. Castro Theatre
    Tuesday July 30, 2019 6:25 p.m. Albany Twin

    ADVOCATE (Rachel Leah Jones, Phillipe Bellaiche 2019)

    A doc about Lea Tsemel, the indestructible Israeli lawyer who for decades has defended Palestinians. She nearly always loses but never gives up. Remarkable. Multiple prizes, including at the Tel Aviv festival Docaviv. CAPSULE.
