Strangers In Good Company

Canadian director Cynthia Scott’s 1990 first feature about the adventures and interactions that ensue when seven elderly women find themselves stranded in the Quebec countryside after their bus breaks down. Largely improvised by the nonprofessional cast, this is mainly quirky and good-natured fun with occasional cute interludes. (JR)

J’accuse

Abel Gance remakes his own melodramatic silent epic about World War I, which focuses on a menage a trois. Two Frenchmen in love with the same woman wind up in the same battalion and agree to let the woman choose between them, but the war makes mincemeat of their lives before she can decide. I can’t vouch for this 1937 version, but the original is wild, eclectic, and inventive like all the best work of Gance, a precursor of Samuel Fuller in more ways than one. In French with subtitles. 119 min. (JR)
