Overview
'HOTEL AMERICA (HOTEL DES AMERIQUES)'
In this riveting romantic drama, CATHERINE DENEUVE stars Helene, a successful anesthesiologist whose chance encounter with the mysterious Gilles (PATRICK DEWAERE) leads to an intense relationship. But when Gilles' deep-rooted insecurities and jealousies take him over, Helene realizes his instability might have dire consequences.

'I DON'T KISS (J'EMBRASSE PAS)'
Techine's striking visual portrait of a young man searching for the meaning of life stars MANUEL BLANC in a Cesar Award-winning performance as the naive Pierre. After ignoring sage advice from an older gay man (PHILIPPE NOIRET), Pierre gives up his dream of becoming an actor and enters the dark world of male prostitution in PAris. But his luck goes even more awry when he falls in love with a beautiful female prostitute (EMMANUELLE BEART) leading to tragic consequences. J'EMBRASSE PAS also garnered Cesar Award nominations for Best Director and Best Supporting Actress (Helene Vincent).
