Francophilic Film Fans Unite! Gerard Depardieu, as it turns out, is nowhere to be found in the French Film Club's new series, which begins with Yves Robert's Watergate-era screwball spy farce The Tall Blond Man With One Black Shoe, and continues the following week with its sequel; both films brought an air of whimsicality to the "international man of mystery" genre. You don't have to speak French to join the club, since all the films are subtitled in English. The series also features French Twist, a comedy about a suburban housewife and her mistress who exact revenge on the woman's philandering husband; and 1954's French Cancan, a star-is-born tale about a laundress who becomes a Moulin Rouge celebrity. The series begins at 7 p.m. and continues Tuesdays at 7 p.m. and Saturdays at 1:30 p.m. (through Aug. 30) at the Alliance Francaise, 1345 Bush, S.F. Admission is free-$5; call 775-7755.
