For our Dablon movie lovers and cinephiles we are providing world class foreign and independent films in the Tasting Room every Wednesday evening through March. At no charge to our wine loving friends, we are bringing Music Box Films’ catalog of over 100 award winning titles to our new 12’ x 7’ screen along with a JBL sound system. Wine will be served by the glass or bottle (no tastings during the film) and we hope to provide time for discussion after the screening. Showtime for The Names of Love on Wednesday, April 13th is 8:00pm.
Baya Benmahmoud, a young, extroverted liberal, lives by the old hippie slogan: “Make love, not war” to convert right-wing men to her left-wing political causes by sleeping with them. She seduces many and so far has received exceptional results – until she meets Arthur Martin, a Jewish middle aged, middle-of-the road scientist. Bound by common tragic family histories (the Algerian War and Holocaust under Vichy), the duo improbably falls in love. Amid the bubbly amour, humorous lasciviousness and moments of sheer madness, filmmaker Michel Leclerc injects satirical riffs on such hot-button sociopolitical issues as Arab-Jewish relations, anti-Semitism, immigration, and racial and cultural identity.
