Staring: Isabelle Huppert, Aure Atika
Not to be confused with the wildly silly song from the
seventies by Barry Manilow, or the lovely surf beach on
the Central Coast, Copacabana is the latest lm from
writer/director Mark Fitoussi starring French screen
legend Isabelle Huppert. A far cry from Huppert's usually
dramatically intense roles. Copacabana sees Huppert
cast as the irrepressible and unconventional Babou a
woman who has little regard for social conventions who
has always lived her life as a free spirit.
When Babou learns that her own daughter is so
ashamed of her mother's lifestyle that she is refusing to
invite her to her wedding out of fear of embarrassment,
Babou tries to regain her daughter's respect by starting
anew. She accepts a dull as ditchwater job selling time-
share apartments on the Belgian seaside during the off-
season, in a desperate attempt to prove her real worth
and her motherly love.
Fitoussi's lm is packed with light moments and some
real comic magic, yet still manages to take a serious look at
relationship rifts and the effect they can have on our lives.

The best way to enjoy Moonlight is with a
group of friends, as you snuggle beneath the
stars -- so why not pack a picnic and blanket
and attend. Or better yet, go 'Gold Grass',
book a bean bag and sup on one of the tasty
gourmet treats available on site. According to
Bogle, it's one of the best ways to experience
the event... "Long Summer evenings, a picnic
in the park with friends, a couple of glasses of
wine and to top it off a movie on the big screen
under the stars! What's not to like? If ever this
combination decreases in popularity, I think
we'll all have a big problem..."
