‘Bride’ tales

In a Globe interview with Joel Brown, Belmont-bred Giulia Rozzi said: “People love that I sort of know in the show that things are going to fall apart, but I do it anyway. It’s sort of like every time you go on the Turkish Twist at Canobie Lake, you know you’re going to puke, but you do it anyway.” The “it” was her 13-month marriage, the subject of the comedian’s one-woman show, “Bad Bride.” Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. $12, $10 students.

Life of a blacksmith For five years, director Dominique Benicheti and cinematographer Pierre-William Glenn recorded the lives of blacksmith Jules Guiteaux and his wife, Félicie, in rural France. Shot in CinemaScope and recorded in stereophonic sound, the 1972 documentary “Cousin Jules” had no distributor because most arthouse theaters didn’t have the necessary CinemaScope-format equipment. The film screens for the first time in the United States. Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. (through March 7). $11, $9 students and seniors (matinee prices available). Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave., Boston. 800-440-6975. www.mfa.org/film
