The continuation of the adventures of the most multicultural of French families, Kervern and Delépine’s comical political comedy, the new horror film from the director of recording… What should we see at the cinema this week?
At the same time – ON watch
Comedy by Gustave Kervern and Benoît Delépine, 1h46
Together. Kervern and Delépine took the catchphrase literally. In his film, two elected officials opposed by everyone find themselves glued to each other. We tell ourselves that the convergence of struggles has perverse effects. That’s not entirely accurate. They were victims of feminist activists who caught them in a hostess bar. The right wing mayor was trying to convince the environmental activist to vote for his amusement park project. Here they are, therefore, trapped in a position that could not be more ambiguous. Starting from an absurd presupposition, Gustave Kervern and Benoît Delépine describe a lost France, bring out the bottom of politics, with a laughing grace, an invention never denied, the shrugs of a Mocky who would have exchanged rage for the cheerful kindness. It should be noted that the actors are of unexpected help to them. IS
Tales of chance and other fantasies – ON watch
Ryusuke Hamaguchi drama, 2h01
In a handful of films and years, 43-year-old Ryusuke Hamaguchi has built an excellent reputation, becoming a favorite at international festivals and expanding his circle of fans. Until the triumph of drive my car , propelled to Cannes before completing its dazzling run at the Oscars. Tales of chance and other fantasies, made up of three stories, reminds us that the Japanese filmmaker likes to experiment with narrative modes. Hamaguchi re-enacts his favorite themes. Chance, love, friendship.
The first segment explores a love triangle as a woman realizes her friend is dating her ex. A misunderstanding is also at the center of the third story, which imagines a computer virus and a return to the postal service. Hamaguchi transcends these duets through dizzying dialogue art. Each conversation carries its share of the unsaid, of double meanings, of discomfort. IS
Grandma – ON watch
Horreur de Paco Plaza, 1h40
An old woman drinks tea behind the window of a cafe in Madrid. Impeccable chignon, houndstooth jacket, this aristocratic grandmother waits with some impatience. She rolls up her sleeve and looks at her watch. Suddenly the clock stops. Upon returning to her apartment, she discovers the lifeless body of another grandmother on the carpet in her living room. She smiles. A naked young woman emerges against the light of another room. Blonde, desirable, approaches the widow. Suddenly, the two women hug each other laughing and the title Grandma written in yellow letters, chic and old-fashioned… Considered one of the masters of Spanish horror cinema, the filmmaker Paco Plaza is the director of the horror saga recording. Although it is still about possession, his new film is much more cinematically polished. The theme of old age and transmission (as creepy as it is) inhabits the framework of this feature film with studied plans. overdose
What the hell have we all done? – We can see
Comedy by Philippe de Chauveron, 1h38
After the Tuches,here are the Verneuils again, the other favorite family of the French. We summarize. In the first episode: four sons-in-law straight out of a Benetton ad. A black, an Arab, a Chinese and a Jew. In the second, the sons-in-law threaten to leave France and the Verneuils fight to keep them. At the beginning of this third and new episode, the Verneuils (well, especially Claude, the father), on the contrary, do their best to avoid these invading sons-in-law. They are not at the end of your sentence. The duo formed by Christian Clavier and Chantal Laby he has lost none of his comic carnage to embody an old conservative France. IS
employee/boss – We can see
Drama by Manuel Nieto, 1:46
Nahuel Pérez Biscayart plays a daddy’s boy in charge of a farm who recruits a poor young man who loves horse racing. The Uruguayan Manuel Nieto describes in detail the class relations between the two, without really transcending the social dimension of his story. HIS. s
Liberty – We can see
Drama by Clara Roquet, 1:44
Like every summer on the Costa Brava, the family gathers in the house overlooking the sea. The grandmother has Alzheimer’s. Shy 15-year-old Nora befriends the Colombian caretaker’s daughter. Boat trips, dips in the pool, nights out in clubs do not erase class differences. This first film is sensitive, discreet, a bit expected. There is a sweet holiday scent. It’s already that. HIS. No.
Inexorable – Avoid
Thriller by Fabrice Du Welz, 1:38
This bestselling author married his publisher’s daughter. Hiring a nanny is a less than happy decision. The teenager turns out to be wicked. Obviously, the great simpleton of a writer succumbs to his charms. This so-called terrifying thriller quickly descends into the ridiculous and doesn’t reserve the slightest surprise. Even Poelvoorde looks bored. And so are we. HIS. No.
