The irremovable Eurovision Song Contest takes place this year at the Pala Alpitour in Turin, Italy. It is the group “Alvan et Ahez” which will represent France with their song “Fulenn”, sung in Breton… Does it bet on a mystical atmosphere and Celtic references? with fire, predominant green lights and a Celtic symbol specific to the druids on the ground.

The irremovable Eurovision Song Contest takes place this year at the Pala Alpitour in Turin, Italy. It is the group “Alvan et Ahez” which will represent France with their song “Fulenn”, sung in Breton… Does it bet on a mystical atmosphere and Celtic references? with fire, predominant green lights and a Celtic symbol specific to the druids on the ground. Will that be enough to please the jury?

Hundreds of crimes have been solved through genetics.


Hundreds of crimes have been solved through genetics.

NOVA PRODUCTION

DNA research has changed the fight against crime. Hundreds of very old cases have been solved thanks to genetics. The documentary “DNA, the end of crime?” » makes us see a little further still: with genetic genealogy, it would even be possible to find anyone on the planet by crossing the data of immense private DNA banks, with the genetic fingerprint of a criminal sought. But the excessive and uncontrolled use of DNA could be daunting, because, if this tool makes it possible to locate killers, it could be just as effective, in the wrong hands, in arresting political opponents, women who have abortions, immigrants, etc.

The movie “Parasite”

Here is a tragic comedy from director Bong Joon-ho who manages to revisit all genres: baroque tradition, suspense and the darkness of the thriller. This film contrasts a family of poor buggers on the one hand, whose father Ki-taek, and the two children, are no less reduced to surviving in an unsanitary apartment, and wealthy people, the Parks, whose the residence surrounded by high walls and cameras, hides a green garden and a dwelling of several floors. Here, no drama, no violence, only skill, a little luck, a lot of necessity. Attention, eruptive final. “Parasite” has managed to rise to the rank of phenomena for having won Palme d’or at Cannes in 2019 and Oscar for best film in 2020.
