From page A9 | November 29, 2011 |

“The Man Who Cried,” a 2000 British/French film directed by Sally Potter, will be screened Friday as part of the International Film series, now in its 15th year.

The series is co-sponsored by the United Nations Association of Davis and International House. Doors at I-House, 10 College Park, open at 7:30 p.m. and the film begins promptly at 8 p.m.

There is no charge, but donations are accepted with gratitude to help cover the cost of DVD rental, facilities use and refreshments.

In “The Man Who Cried,” a Russian Jewish father (Oleg Yankovskiy) emigrates to America in the 1920s, promising to send for his mother and young daughter when he is settled. When the village is burned in a pogrom, his mother is killed and his daughter is separated from other youngsters who make it to the port.

She ends up on a ship bound for England where she is renamed Suzie and raised by a British family. Eventually, her talent in singing and dancing lands her in Paris where she (Christina Ricci) is befriended by a fellow dancer from Moscow (Cate Blanchett with a heavy accent). They are romantically involved with an opera star, Dante (John Turturro), and a brooding Gypsy, Cesar (Johnny Depp).

When the Nazis march into Paris, Suzie gets out on yet another ship, this time finally headed for America to continue the search for her father. Dialog is in many different languages but it’s subtitled.
