Premiere at the French Institute

When you lose faith in one god, move on to the next one. This seems to be the motto in Pascale Bailly’s spiritually challenging, new romantic comedy, «Dieu est Grand, Je Suis Toute Petite» (God is Big, I’m Tiny). The film makes its debut in Greece tonight with a screening at the French Institute in Athens with the attendance of the director. The film’s star power comes through in the presence of Audrey Tautou, who led the tale of happiness in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s globally popular «Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain» in 2001. The cast also includes Edouard Baer and Julie Depardieu. As she celebrates her 20th birthday, Michele seems to have it all. She is convinced of the opposite, however. Having just split up from her boyfriend, the young Parisienne model feels that something is missing in her life, and that the answer she is looking for has to do with religion. In her quest to inject a little bit of spirituality into her daily life, she begins by flirting with Buddhism. When she meets Francois, a veterinarian and non-practicing Jew, Michele readily immerses herself in the Torah. Could this be the right god for her? «Dieu est Grand, Je Suis Toute Petite,» will be shown in the auditorium at the French Institute in Athens, 31 Sina St, tel 010.339.8600. Screening starts at 9 p.m. In French with Greek subtitles. Losers beat winners 290 to 33, while 30 shares were unchanged on 353 traded. (Reuters)
