“The Flower of Buriti”

Pity !

“The Fall Guy”

Overflowing with jokes, actions and jokes, the adaptation of the eighties series “The Man Who Falls Right” with Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt exhausts itself by doing too much, without ever finding its axis. Read our review.

The Fall Guy by David Leitch, with Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson… 2h06.

“Till the end of the world”

Second attempt at directing for beloved actor Viggo Mortensen who takes on the role of a deconstructed cowboy in a feminist western with big hooves with Vicky Krieps. Read our review.

And also…

“A Matter of Principle”

Antoine Raimbault draws inspiration from the vast corruption affair revealed by José Bové and his parliamentary assistants in 2013 and involving tobacco lobbies. A film about a subject without daring, saved by its actors. Read our review.

“The Shadow of Fire”

Japanese punk filmmaker Shinya Tsukamoto returns with a film about survivors of the Second World War, traumatized by the Japanese defeat. Not always subtle, but always sharp. Read our review.

“The Stolen Painting”

Pascal Bonitzer attempts a satire of the art market, but the social subject remains superficial and the film turns into boulevard theater. Read our review.
