The 39th Portland International Film Festival: CHEVALIER

Chevalier copy

“While on a fishing trip in the Aegean Sea, six men decide to play Chevalier, a game that measures every aspect of who they are. Things will be compared. Blood will be spilled. At the end of the game, one man will emerge as the best and receive a signet ring. Tsangari further solidifies her place as a master of the Greek cinema new wave with a cleverly written script with co–writer Efthymis Filippou (The Lobster, PIFF39) that is an acute and humorous study of male egotism. Chevalier is an absurdist farce that explores the competitiveness of male relationships as could only be observed by a female auteur.”—AFI Fest. (99 mins.)

The 39th Portland International Film Festival is sponsored by the James F. & Marion L. Miller Foundation, Delta Airlines, LAIKA, Willamette Week, Regal Entertainment Group, Travel Portland, Umpqua Bank, The Autzen Foundation, Amtrak Cascades, The Lamb-Baldwin Foundation, Hotel deLuxe, Hotel Eastund, Voodoo Doughnut, TV5Monde, and many others.
