Stéphanie di Giusto - France - 108 mins

Nothing in her background destined Loïe Fuller (the mononymous Soko) from the American Midwest to become a Belle Époque icon, much less a dancer at the Paris Opera.

Footnotes
Paul Calori, Kostia Testut - France - 83 mins

After last year's well-received Belgian Rhapsody, here is another romantic musical comedy that addresses social issues. Inspired by the films of Jacques Demy and Stanley Donen, the whimsical Footnotes ... more

Mali Blues
Lutz Gregor - Germany - 92 mins

Although this documentary features many lively performances, the story is heartbreaking.
