Comedic films will also be on show, including :Les Mains en l'Air (Hands up), Ensemble C'est trop (Together's a crowd) and Erreur de la Banque en votre Faveur (Bank error in your favor). A drama based on a true story, La Fille du RER (The girl on the train) and an animated film Kerity, la Maison des Contes (Eleanor's Secret) will all be shown to Bali audiences.
