    PERFECT NANNY/CHANSON DOUCE (Lucie Borleteau 2019)

    From Leïla Slimani''s Goncourt-winning bestseller - but the nanny from hell story fizzles a bit despite Karin Viard. Some precision and control of defense are lacking.

    MAMOUNA DOUCOURÉ: CUTIES/MIGNONNES (MAMOUNA DOUCOURÉ 2020)

    Uneven but vibrant movie about an 11-year-old girl in the Paris banlieue of Senegalese origin torn between a traditional family and an inappropriately sexy dance group. The camera of Yann Maritaud captures colorful people and action.

    The 2020 Rendez-Vous with French Cinema ends abruptly.

    AN EASY GIRL/UNE FILLE FACILE (Rebecca Zlotowski 2019)

    Sensuous sun-kissed coming-of-age moment, evoking Rohmer & Bardot, a free older friend who's the eternal feminine, a naive poor local girl respected by the millionaire's friend (Magimel). This seemed slight and familiar yet it left me with a pleasant feeling.

    . . . a feeling that was dampened abruptly on walking out of the Walter Reade Theater only to learn that due to the virus the rest of the Rendez-Vous was cancelled. That meant no Filmleaf "live" coverage of these seven additional Rendez-Vous films:

    Those links are to sites where reviews may appear later. For now, you will find only a still, a festival blurb, a few details.

    This was a disappointment, but an even greater gap appeared later when Lincoln Center announced the discontinuation of all film presentations for the near future. This meant cancellation of the sixteen New Directors/New Films press screenings scheduled for next week at two venues.

    So, altogether, 23 new films that can't be covered here now.
