A Tale by Tommy Vale – edited for television.
Thank you Francois and COLCOA for another great year of French films!

Last night our packed screening of La Belle Époque was interrupted by an emergency alarm, but news today is that the screening will take place again tonite Sunday! cheers! The mystery continues !! This has been a terrific year of films from ColCoa. Several by women filmmakers have been insightful studies of the dilemmas of French teens. We’ve seen films set in Paris and in rural communities. I’ve spent a fine week in France!
