$6 Tuesday Meetup @ Living Room Theaters! PARADISE

Grab a drink and let’s go see a movie! Bring friends and some good conversation to discuss the film, its characters, the production and more. The Living Room Theater is the location of our weekly Monday meetup. Most movies they play are independent, foreign, artistic with an occasional blockbuster.

We meet Tuesday evenings to take advantage of their $6 Merry Movie special. They have weekday showings of all their movies in the 7:00 hour, and those are the showings we’re shooting for. If you see something coming up there that you’d like to recommend as our Living Room movie of the week, message me or post it on the board by Wednesday the previous week

PARADISE

Olga is a beautiful Russian countess and member of the French Resistance; Jules is a French-Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case; and Helmut is a handsome, high-ranking, yet naïve German SS officer who once fell madly in love with Olga and meets her again when she is shipped to a concentration camp. While they recount their stories, the film drifts between the bloody end of World War II and the gilded, halcyon days when their destinies first crossed. 

Victim, bystander, or monster – Konchalovsky (“Runaway Train,” “House of Fools”) collapses these identities, offering a new perspective on the Holocaust. Shot in stunning black and white, the film depicts the morally complex choices that one must make during dark times in search of PARADISE—a look at the past and its lessons for the present. 

Director: Andrey KonchalovskiyCountry: RussiaGenre: DramaYear: 2017Run Time: 02:12:00imdb Score: 7.2/10 (759 votes)Language: Russian | German | French | YiddishRating: Not RatedCast: Yuliya Vysotskaya, Peter Kurth, Viktor Sukhorukov”Konchalovsky more recently directed 

“The Nutcracker in 3D.” Set in 1920s Vienna, that PG-rated film trivialized Auschwitz. PARADISE atones for that mistake.”

Bill Stamets – CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

“Konchalovskiy’s tale captures the banality of evil, presents it as contemporary, as human.”

Jennie Kermode – EYE FOR FILM

“Russian veteran Andrei Konchalovsky is on robust form in this richly monochrome, perspective-rotating Holocaust drama.”

Guy Lodge – VARIETY
