35 Shots of Rum

35 Rhums

Dir. Claire Denis, 2008, 100 min

With Alex Descas, Mati Diop, Nicole Dogué

In French with English subtitles

Official Selection of the 2008 Venice International Film Festival

The New York Times Critics' Pick

Widely hailed as one of the best films of 2009, Claire Denis’s sublime 35 Shots of Rum captures the moving story of a father and daughter whose close-knit, tender relationship is disrupted by a handsome young suitor. Sumptuously filmed and featuring an evocative score by Tindersticks, it casts a lovely spell unlike any other movie.

Richard Peña, series curator: “Claire Denis effectively captures the sense of contemporary multicultural Paris, defined by new kinds of ties and relationships.

A quiet and lovely new film… extraordinary thematic richness… Achieves a rare eloquence… exquisite and expressive cinematography.” – The New York Times

A masterpiece. Seductive and beautiful.” – NY Press

A warm, embracing work, with a flowing lyricism and a delicate poignancy.” – LA Times

Dazzling and affecting. Don’t miss this one.” – Washington Post
