Mathieu Amalric's Acclaimed 'On Tour' Helps 54th SF Film Festival Bid Adieu

The San Francisco Film Festival closes tonight with Tournée (On Tour), The Diving Bell and the Butterfly star Mathieu Amalric's highly improvised comedy about an American burlesque troupe touring the French countryside. The lights go down on the 54th festival's final feature at 7 p.m. at the Castro, with the annual Closing Night bash following the screening at The Factory on Harrison Street.
"What better finale for the international than a rousing French film that embraces an American phenomenon, merging American exuberance with French élan," said Director of Programming Rachel Rosen of Tour, which, according to Amalric, celebrates the imperfections of burlesque and life.
