A Feature film by Philippe Faucon

Produced by Mordicus Productions (Kinok Films)

Release in France : 25/01/2006


    Algeria, 1960. War has been raging for six years and it will take two more years before Algeria – in French hands since 1830 – gains independence following a referendum settled by General De Gaulle.
    Lieutenant Roque, a Frenchman, is in command of an isolated post of thirty soldiers in the south-eastern region of Algeria. All the men have been drafted; among them are four young Muslims – French of North African origin as was said back then. Caporal Taïeb acts an interpreter for Roque.
    The post’s mission is to assure the security and control of a neighboring village and its environs, and the displaced, unemployed men and women, teenagers, and children living there. Everyone is tired of this interminable war and eager to lead normal lives again. Roque sometimes manages to gain people’s trust, even if many are no doubt secretly partisans of the FLN (National Liberation Front) and Algerian independence.
    Neither war nor peace will stop Roque from seeing his mission through. Then, all of a sudden, everything goes awry…

    To Paint or Make Love by Arnaud and Jean-Marie Larrieu (Peindre ou faire l’amour, France, 2005, 100 min.). Set in the shadows of mountain peaks, To Paint or Make Love is a sly, provocative film about a long-married couple letting loose for the first time in ages. Having reached early retirement age, Madeleine (Sabine Azéma) and William (Daniel Auteuil) lead a quiet life. One day, as Madeleine is painting out in the country, she meets the blind village mayor, Adam, who convinces her to buy an isolated house in the heart of the Vercors mountains. William and Madeleine soon trade their city apartment for the pastoral life, and get to know Adam and his attractive wife Eva at dinner parties. Aroused by the youthful pair, and inspired by the beauty of their surroundings, the older couple gradually free themselves of their inhibitions. Description adapted from the Sydney French Film Festival.
