L'Espace in Hanoi will screen Les Bureaux de Dieu (God's Office), a 2008 film by French film director Claire Simon, on August 5.
The film is a realist dramedy about dedicated social workers who devote their long shifts to helping pregnant women.
According to Le Nouvel Observateur, a French daily newspaper, the film examines thoughts about sexual relationships and contraception through the stories of several female characters before and after visits to the clinic.
Djamila likes to use contraceptives because the relationship with her boyfriend has turned serious; Zoe's mother who gives her condoms looks down on her. Nedjma hides contraceptives because her mother looks for it in her bags.
Meanwhile, Helene feels she is lucky, Clemence is scared, and Adeline and Margot want to keep the baby.
Anne, Denise, Marta, Yasmine, Milena are counsellors who advise and listen to questions about how to be free in sexual relationship.
In God's office, people smile, cry and are super busy with work. They dance, they smoke on the balcony and they secretly keep coming to tell their normal or special stories.
Tickets (VND10,000-VND20,000) are on sale at L'Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street.
