In May, CANAL+ is doing what series fans like with the long-awaited return of MAAAARC de la Flamme, in Le Flambeau! Moviegoers will be able to (re)discover Dune or Fast & Furious 9, not to mention a Cannes 2021 selection.


Titanium – Monday, May 16

Sensation of 2021 allowing its director Julia Ducournau to win the prestigious Palme d’or at the 74th Cannes Film Festival, Titane arrives this May 16 on CANAL +. A unique physical and sensory experience, the film portrays Alexia (Agathe Rousselle), a thirty-year-old forced to live with a titanium implant in her skull after a road accident when she was a child.

Suffering from a post-traumatic syndrome giving her murderous impulses, she crosses paths with Vincent (Vincent Lindon), a firefighter convinced that Alexia is his son Adrien, who has been missing for 10 years. Together, they will break down all the barriers of normality and rebuild themselves by giving birth to a love that is as strong as it is singular.

Dune – Friday, May 20

A new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s reputedly unsuitable novel, Dune has been transformed into a show of unprecedented scale thanks to the talent of Denis Villeneuve. A huge success at the cinema breaking all box office records, the feature film immerses us in the history of the Atreides people, and more particularly in that of their new messiah, Paul, played by Timothée Chalamet.

To preserve the future of his family, this brilliant boy will have to invest the most dangerous planet in the universe to recover the most precious resource in the world: the spice, which prolongs human life. A sublime and intense odyssey, to rediscover on CANAL+.

Aline – Friday, May 27

Crowned with the César 2022 for Best Actress, Valérie Lemercier becomes Aline in this fiction produced by her and freely inspired by the life of Céline Dion. From her childhood in Quebec to her meeting and her incredible love story with music producer Guy-Claude (who is reminiscent of René Angélil), Aline invites us to follow her impressive journey.

On the program: a festival of outfits and wigs, a parade of cult songs, hilarious scenes and emotional sequences… In short, a high-flying film which also relies on the interpretations of Sylvain Marcel and Danielle Fichaud, true revelations !

The Flambeau – from Monday 23 May

MAAAAAAARC! The many fans of La Flamme were impatiently awaiting his return, the bachelor played by Jonathan Cohen is putting on his costume for a new adventure that is likely to surprise more than one… him first! Exit the villa and the 13 women wishing to seduce him, our airline pilot is this time propelled to Chupacabra in Le Flambeau.

On this desert island, Marc is surrounded by former contenders and new candidates. Manipulations, alliances, betrayals, physical hardships and struggle to survive: the 9 episodes will make us see all the colors and above all cause us big fits of laughter.

All worn by Jérôme Commandeur, Laura Felpin, Gérard Darmon, Kad Merad or Mister V, but also Géraldine Nakache, Ana Girardot, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Pierre Niney. “Is that what we call the multiverse?!”


The Responder – from Monday 9 May
