Films to see in cinemas in November 2021

What films should I see in theaters for the month of November? Films inspired by books, French films, biographical films, moving films, the season continues to offer a panel of cinematographic choices.

We are moved by the adaptation of the eponymous novel by Annie Ernaux on the intimate odyssey of a young woman forced to have an illegal abortion in the France of the sixties in The event, we are captivated by the biographical film Supreme which traces the beginnings of the rapper duo of NTM, or we are shaken by Olga, the fate of an incredible gymnasium fleeing its country.

Small health reminder all the same, the health pass is always mandatory at the entrance of the cinema (proof of vaccination or negative Covid test).

The event by Audrey Piwan

Adapted from the eponymous novel by Annie Ernaux, The event recounts the struggle of a young girl, Anne (Anamaria Vartolomei)) to have an abortion. Far from being anachronistic, while abortion is still threatened or even banned in many countries, Audrey Diwan’s second achievement confronts us with patriarchal horror, pain and blood. A radical and lived-in feature film.

In theaters November 27.


Supreme by Audrey Estrougo

NTM is perhaps the biggest French hip-hop group. Rather than checking all the boxes of the official biopic in school, Supreme focuses on the late 80s and very early 90s, when NTM was made up of twenty daredevil lascars (!) and brings to life scenes all sweaty, sensitive and embodied, between the two heroes – Kool Shen and Joey Starr – and their crew.

Audrey Estrougo poses a delicate look at the meteoric rise by Kool Shen (Sandor Funtek, completely inhabited by his role) and Joey Starr (Théo Christine, brilliant too). Rather than turning them into bad boys, the director dwells on the endearing dimension of the characters: from violent fathers to unloved sons, the phenomenon NTM was built on an emotional void filled by a story of friendship.

Through a montage of archives (politicians and media of the time) which punctuates the rise of the duo, the film draws up the hollow portrait of a youth from the suburbs and abandoned by politicians. We reconnect with the contentious impact of the pieces, their corrosive force in the face of social injustice and the behavior of certain police officers in the estates. A point of view that feels good.

In theaters November 24.
