See Paris againby Alice Winocour
See Paris again is a wonderful film of resilience, worn by an imperial Virginie Efira. Presented at La Quinzaine des Réalisateurs, Alice Winocour’s feature film is inspired by Paris attacks of November 13. The main character survives a armed attack in a cafe and undergoes a heavy trauma which causes him to lose his memory. To rebuild herself, she understands that she will have to investigate to find the person who helped her to survive, and maybe even question your whole life. By taking on a subject that is still very recent for those who have experienced it, See Paris again upsets at each scene. The wound that is still alive will bring back bad memories and will shed a lot of tears. In addition to a marvelously written screenplay, the film is carried by its performers, Virginie Efira of course, but also Benoît Magimel and Grégoire Colin. The release is scheduled for September 7.
The Beasts (As Bestas), by Rodrigo Sorogoyen
The Spanish filmmaker most popular at the moment is back with a new punch movie. After having filmed a Spaniard in France in Madre, the director takes the opposite route and focuses on a French couple in Spain. Antoine and Olga, interpreted by Denis Ménochet and Marina Foïs, are farmers in a small village in the Galician countryside, but their presence displeases the last inhabitants of the area. Presented in the Cannes Première selection, The Beasts would have had its place in official competition, and even on the prize list! Like he usually does, Rodrigo Sorogoyen (Que Dios nos Perdone, El Reino) reveals a suffocating thriller, where he manages to arouse the viewer’s anguish with very simple details. It’s a huge slap from which we do not come out unscathed. Denis Ménochet proves once again that he is one of the best actors French of her generation and Marina Foïs, that she has a lot to give outside of comedy. The feature film hits theaters on July 20.
A nice morningby Mia Hansen-Løve
Always in the Directors’ Fortnightwith the return to France of Mia Hansen-Loveafter his English-speaking getaway with Bergman Island. For A nice morning, the filmmaker brought together Léa Seydoux and Melvil Poupaud in a bitter love story. The filmmaker recalls the sweetest films of Eric Rohmer by evoking this nerd couple to exciting conversations. Above all, it is the secondary roles that give the film a very special flavor. Pascal Greggory and Nicole Garcia in the lead, in the role of Léa Seydoux’s parents. A nice morning is crossed by a beautiful tenderness, very pleasant to watch, the cinema of Mia Hansen-Løve gets better over the works. The film also won the Europea Cinema Label.
