Posted on: April 22, 2013

French filmmaker Jennifer Devolére felt inspired by Larry David in Curb your Enthusiasm to create her film’s character, Eli – a gruff, tactless guy. This week the Murphy Library is showing Devolére’s comedy/romance The Day I Saw Your Heart, a 2011 French film distributed by Film Movement. The film will be screened Thursday at 6 p.m., in French with subtitles in English.  Running time is 98 minutes and the film would not be suitable for children.  

Eli is in his third marriage, to a much younger woman.   One day he announces to his grown daughters that his wife is pregnant. He’s almost 60 The married daughter, Dom, has been unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant, and now plans to adopt.  The beautiful Justine, his youngest, barely keeps a boyfriend for longer than three days, and then Eli tries to make friends with her ex-boyfriends.  As you can see, this family is complicated.

Then there is the love of art.  Justine wants to be an artist but needs to earn a living.  Her solution? Work in a radiology lab and make art out of x-rays.
