Cast: Harvey Keitel, Toni Collette, Rossy de Palma
Anne and Bob, an American couple living in Paris, organize a dinner party and invite ten friends. Bob’s son arrives by surprise and the total number of guests is now at 13. The superstitious Anne insists her maid Maria disguises herself as a mysterious Spanish noble woman to even out the numbers. But a little too much wine and some playful chat lead Maria to accidentally endear herself to David, a dandy British art broker. Their budding romance will have Anne chasing her maid around Paris and finally plotting to destroy this most unexpected and joyous love affair.

A series of works to renovate and modernise the premises is currently ongoing at the Alliance Française. Please note that la galerie and la médiathèque will be closed from 20 to 25 August. The works will end early September and you will soon be able to discover a whole new Alliance Française with improved facilities and a new Café relocated at the 1st floor (le café Diabolo) for an even better experience. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused during the works and we look forward to showing you the new and upgraded Alliance Française.
