35 Shots of Rum
Claire Denis, 2008
Feb 19, 2010–Mar 4, 2010
“The warmth radiating from 35 Shots of Rum, smoother than the finest liquor, reminds viewers how rarely movies capture the easygoing love embodied in a functional family, with all its support and tenderness.”— Variety

Named one of the top ten films of 2009 by the New York Times, IndieWire, Film Comment, The Village Voice, Time Out New York, Artforum, and many others!

One of the best-reviewed films of 2009 returns to Columbus for this special engagement! Claire Denis, known for her subtle, fluid, and intriguing movies, is clearly among the greatest filmmakers of our time. She sets this story in a Paris suburb, where a widowed metro conductor, approaching retirement, lives with his beautiful grown daughter—the object of a neighbor’s romantic interest. The man’s former girlfriend also lives in their building and plays a role in their closely knit lives. 35 Shots of Rum considers the mysterious complexities that surround evolving relationships, whether romantic or parental. This is the rare movie whose plot is driven both by what people say and what they hold back, the meaningful pauses between words, a significant glance, a sexy outfit, a thoughtful gift. It’s a film that holds a mirror up to life as it is actually led. (100 mins., 35mm)
