The War of the Buttons (La guerre des boutons)

Theatrical Release April 20th, 2012

It is 1960, a village in the south of France. A gang of boys, aged between 7 and 14, led by the intrepid Lebrac, is at war with children of a neighbouring village, their sworn enemies. It is a war that has lasted for generations, a war without end and without concession. To defend their honour and proclaim their loyalty, the boy warriors will do anything to show that are the stronger side – even if it means fighting battles in the nude or admitting a girl (horror!) into their esteemed ranks. The only thing these brave soldiers fear is to be caught by their parents after a skirmish has left them deprived of buttons and with their clothes in tatters. In that event, discretion is most definitely the better part of valour…

José & Pilar

José & Pilar

Theatrical Release July 6, 2012

This funny and touching documentary follows the famous Portuguese novelist José Saramago (who died in 2010) during two of the last years of his life. Constantly accompanied, advised and adored by his Spanish wife Pilar del Río, the elderly writer submits—not without a degree of passive resistance—to the constraints of a celebrity never sought. Travelling the globe, snoozing with Gabriel García Márquez during events in their honour, Saramago is more than aware that each passing moment brings him a little closer to the end. But it is not so much death that bothers this famously cynical atheist as the thought of leaving Pilar behind, the love of his life, who, as he says, was so long in coming.
