In Robert Guédiguian's 1997 film Marius and Jeannette, Jeannette, a single mother of two, works as a supermarket cashier, barely eking out a living for her family. Marius is the lone security guard for an abandoned cement factory. The two meet there when Marius catches Jeannette stealing cans of paint. Somewhat awkwardly, their affection develops.

The film is in French with English subtitles.

Films on the Green is a free outdoor French film festival produced annually in New York City parks by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and NYC Parks. Initiated in 2008, Films on the Green has become a not-to-be-missed free event amid the vibrant New York City summer cultural offerings. Over the years, the festival has brought classic and contemporary French cinema to New Yorkers, each season’s films spanning different themes from environment or musicals to literary adaptations. This year’s festival celebrates love “à la française.”
