Political antics, art-theft, culinary warfare and literary horseplay are just some of the highlights of this year’s Cinémathèque Française line-up. See seven new comedies, dramas, box-office sensations and international hits, and don’t miss the restored director’s cut of Patrice Chéreau’s sensational 1994 bodice-ripper Queen Margot (La reine Margo). Vive le cinéma!
