Le Chef

Opens Friday, Jun 20, 2014 Synopsis: A famous chef finds his position at a renowned restaurant threatened by a young hotshot who specializes in chemically enhanced cuisine, and partners with a self-taught gourmet to save his failing career. Alexandre Lagarde (Jean Reno) is the king of the kitchen at Cargo Lagarde. But his position at the top is threatened when scheming CEO Stanislas Matter (Julien Boisselier) plots to have the restaurant's rating lowered in order to make room for an ambitious young chef with more modern sensibilities. Meanwhile, things go from bad to worse for the old pro when he runs out of new ideas as Matter begins trimming his kitchen staff. Just when it seems that all hope is lost, however, Legarde meets Jacky Bonnot (Michaël Youn), a young cook whose creativity in the kitchen makes up for his lack of formal training. Together with his talented new assistant Bonnot, Legarde prepares to whip up an exciting menu just in time to impress the discerning critics from the Guide, and save his sinking career. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jean Reno, Michaël Youn, Raphaelle Agogue, James Gerard Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Margaret

Opens Friday, Sep 30, 2011 Synopsis: A young woman (Anna Paquin) wrestles with powerful emotions after witnessing a catastrophic bus accident in this drama from Academy Award-nominated writer/director Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me). Though production on Margaret wrapped in late 2005, the future of the film came into question when Lonergan's original edit clocked in at approximately 180 minutes and Fox Searchlight executives balked at the titanic runtime. Lawsuits ensued, and eventually a series of filmmakers including Martin Scorsese came aboard to help produce an edit that would both preserve the filmmaker's artistic vision and satisfy the studio's demands for paring the story down. Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, Jean Reno, and Matthew Broderick co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, Jean Reno, Matthew Broderick Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

La Rafle (The Round Up)

Opens Friday, Oct 5, 2012 Synopsis: The chilling story of the 1942 "Vel' d'Hiv" Roundup in France comes to the screen in this cautionary historical drama starring Jean Reno and Melanie Laurent. The Weismanns were a typical Montmartre from a tight-knit Jewish neighborhood. But on that fateful morning of July 16, 1942, this family and many others would face the worst horror imaginable when they, and 13,000 other Parisian Jews, were systematically arrested by French police, and corralled into a stadium under the orders of their Nazi occupiers. As the unsuspecting prisoners are prepared for deportation, a Jewish doctor (Reno) and a Protestant nurse (Laurent) attempt to provide adequate care for their patients while bearing witness to one of the most shameful atrocities ever committed by man. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jean Reno, Mélanie Laurent, Gad Elmaleh Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Alex Cross

Now Playing Synopsis: A lawman is torn between justice and personal vengeance in this action drama. Alex Cross (Tyler Perry) is a detective and forensic psychologist who works for the Detroit Police Department with his partner Tommy Kane (Edward Burns) and promising rookie Monica Ashe (Rachel Nichols). While Cross is dedicated to his work, he's just as committed to his home life, and is excited to learn he and his wife Maria (Carmen Ejogo) will be welcoming a third child. When a wealthy and well-connected woman is found dead and partially dismembered in her mansion, police chief Richard Brookwell (John C. McGinley) assigns Cross and his team to the case, and they soon find themselves playing a cat and mouse game with a nameless psychotic (Matthew Fox) with a taste for torture and a grudge against some of the Motor City's wealthiest citizens. Clues point to French financier Leon Mercier (Jean Reno) as the killer's ultimate victim, but Cross and his team suspect Mercier has a secret he isn't willing to share, and the case becomes a personal obsession for Cross when the maniac first kills Monica and then Maria. Also starring Giancarlo Esposito and Cicely Tyson, Alex Cross marked Tyler Perry's debut as an action hero, playing the protagonist of James Patterson's series of best-selling crime novels; Cross was previously played on screen by Morgan Freeman in the films Kiss The Girls and Along Came A Spider. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Cast: Tyler Perry, Edward Burns, Matthew Fox, Jean Reno, Carmen Ejogo, Cicely Tyson, Rachel Nichols, John C.

Le Dernier Combat

Synopsis: Unusual because it has no spoken dialogue, Dernier Combat effectively chronicles the fate of a handful of people after a worldwide disaster has left the planet desolate and bleak and the people physically unable to speak. A young man (Pierre Jolivet) longs for female companionship and so he puts together a serviceable plane and flies to the remains of a city where survivors live in the ruined hulks of cars -- or wherever they can. The problem is that there are very few women to be found here as well. After the young man enters the city, he comes across an older doctor who has returned to his psychiatric clinic and is barricaded there, defending the clinic against the attacks of a violent barbarian intent on further destruction. This murderous aggressor is not only after the doctor but also a women who is hiding in the clinic -- and when the young man joins up with the doctor and sees the woman, his future takes a new course. Le Dernier Combat (also known as The Last Battle) was the first feature-length film by a 24-year-old Luc Besson (The Big Blue, La Femme Nikita, The Fifth Element). The film won two major prizes at the 1983 Avoriaz Science Fiction Film Festival, and collected more than 18 prizes at other international festivals -- though it was overlooked by France's Caesars and the U.S. Academy Awards. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi Cast: Pierre Jolivet, Jean Bouise, Fritz Wepper, Jean Reno, Maurice Lamy Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
