Nathalie Baye

Celebrating its 12th year, FOCUS ON FRENCH CINEMA, the highly anticipated festival of contemporary French-language films, returns to Connecticut and Manhattan from April 1-5, 2016 with a line-up of 12 newly released feature-length films as well as a variety of documentaries, short films, TV series, animated films and classic retrospectives.

Focus on French Cinema

For the first time, Focus on French Cinema will feature a screening at the Avon Theatre Film Center, a long-time partner of the festival.

Nathalie Baye is a unique and legendary actress with appearances in more than 80 films. She began her acting career in 1970 and became widely known for her performance as the script girl in Francois Truffaut

THE RETURN OF MARTIN GUERRE (1982), the classic film from Director Daniel Vigne, is based on a case of imposture in 16th century France. Martin Guerre (Gerard Depardieu) returns to his village in southwestern France after being away in the war for almost a decade. Imagining herself a widow, his wife (Nathalie Baye) is astonished when her husband returns. The villagers who knew him as a young man suspect he is not Martin, but he seems to know all about his friends, his family and his wife, even the most unusual things. Is this man really Martin Guerre?
