Rialto Movie Of The Week: Ruby & Quentin

RIALTO MOVIE OF THE WEEK
Ruby & Quentin


CLICK THROUGH TO RIALTO

Gerard Depardieu is Quentin, a good-natured idiot embarking on a life of crime, and Jean Reno is hard-boiled Ruby, a vengeful crook with enemies everywhere. They're the vitally mismatched twosome in this shameless slapstick comedy, another hit for Francis Veber, writer/director of classic French farces La Cage aux folles, The Dinner Game and The Closet. Thrown together in a prison cell, Quentin, who never stops prattling, mistakes the taciturn Ruby for a good listener and therefore a friend. Ruby, meanwhile, convinced that nobody could be as stupid as Quentin, decides he must be incredibly smart and working undercover for the police.

Rating: M - Violence & Offensive Language, 87 mins

There's also a competition to win DVDs

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
