Directed by: Mathieu Amalric
In Hold Me Tight, Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Bergman Island) gives another riveting performance as Clarisse, a woman on the run from her family for reasons that aren’t immediately clear. Widely renowned as one of France’s great contemporary actors but less well-known in North America for his equally impressive work behind the camera, Mathieu Amalric’s sixth feature as director is his most ambitious to date. This virtuosic, daringly fluid portrait of a woman in crisis alternates between Clarisse’s adventures on the road and scenes of her abandoned husband Marc (Arieh Worthalter) as he struggles to take care of their children at home. Amalric’s film keeps viewers uncertain as to the reality of what they’re seeing until the final moments of this moving, unpredictable, and richly rewarding family drama.

dir. Mark Cousins, 160 min.
In 2011, writer Mark Cousins was known for a TV series adapted from his book, Scene-by-Scene. We were not prepared for the overwhelming tour-de-force that was original The Story of Film: An Odyssey. The 15-part series (shown in two-hour chunks at PFC) was a revelation and cinema buffs were sent scrambling in all directions to find some of the treasure Mark unearthed. Happily, he has provided a continuation covering the last decade, which covers dramatic changes in technology and even the ways Covid has altered the process of making movies. Beguiling, and a big-screen must.
