‘Café Lumiere’ at TMoCA

Taiwanese director Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s ‘Cafe Lumiere’ is being screened at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts (TMoCA) on Sundays and Wednesdays, after its first showing on June 12. The story revolves around Yoko Inoue, a young Japanese woman doing research on Taiwanese music composer Jiang Wen-Ye. The film pays homage to Yasujiro Ozu, Japanese film director and screenwriter (1903-1963), with direct reference to his’Tokyo Story’ (1953).
The late composer’s Japanese wife and daughter also make appearances (as themselves) in the film, Honaronline reported.
It premiered at a festival commemorating the centenary of Ozu’s birth anniversary in 2003, and was nominated for a Golden Lion at the 2004 Venice Film Festival.
The French film ‘The Rules of the Game’ (1939) by French screenwriter and director Jean Renoir (1894-1979) was screened on Monday at the Iranian Artists Forum, following which an analytical session was held in the presence of cinema critic and theater director Keivan Kasirian and author, film director and photographer Majid Barzegar, to discuss the film.
A comedy, the film depicts the moral callousness of the upper-class French society and their domestic help, just before the beginning of World War II.
The movie premiered in 1939 at the Colisée Theater in Paris to a full house and later at the Aubert Palace in Paris.
It was the most expensive French film at the time, and its original budget of French francs 2.5 million increased to over five million.
