Independent cinemas around the country play host to the best of French cinema, both past and present, with the arrival of the French Film Festival.
Running until the 7th of December, there are only a few more days left to catch terribly chic, awfully modern, and decadently European film noir.
If the critically acclaimed film Rust and Bone is anything to go by, the festival will be deep, thought provoking, and a little emotional. I guess all film makers hope to do just that, but the French, have a way with words, and the language is undeniably, captivating.
The festival is in it's 21st year, so the final few days in Aberdeen will be somewhat celebratory. Don't miss The Returned, the darkly atmospheric film that inspired the spooky TV series of the same name.
