Tori and Lokita
The Dardenne brothers (in an interview in our new issue) return with this film hailed by the prize of the 75th Cannes Film Festival and inhabited by the moral questions that innervate their cinema. We follow the journey of two migrant children who give their name to the film, doubly criminalized by our societies. As the two young heroes are caught in the increasingly inextricable vices of smugglers and traffickers who exploit their invisibility, the film exudes moments of pure happiness, and pure despair. Our review.
In theaters on 7/9.
See Paris again
Through her ultra-contemporary choices and her impressionist acting, Virginie Efira (soon in Other people’s children by Rebecca Zlotowski which will be screened at the Venice Film Festival) has become the incarnation of the European actress. Don’t miss her in this furiously dark romantic drama from Alice Winocour. A film in which a love story unravels and a couple’s story unravels as the attacks tear Paris apart. Also with a very moving Benoît Magimel.
In theaters on 14/9.
With See Paris again, November is the other film inspired by the Paris attacks of 2015. Cédric Jimenez delivers the point of view of police forces confronted with the unthinkable. The director of BAC North immerses us in the investigation carried out by the anti-terrorist brigades during the five days which followed the facts. In the credits, Jean Dujardin, Sandrine Kiberlain and Anaïs Demoustier.
In theaters on 5/10.
Three Thousand Years Of Longing
George Miller signs a philosophical tale bringing together Alithea, a specialist in narratology interpreted by Tilda Swinton and a jinn who has the features of Idris Elba. The meeting takes place in a hotel room in Turkey where the genie will tell him his story and offer him three wishes. A deep (and playful) film about the importance of stories in our lives.
In theaters on 14/9.
Triangle Of Sadness
five years later The Square, Ruben Östlund won a second Palme d’Or at Cannes for this film which digs the satirical furrow that has made its reputation. In this story of a luxury cruise that goes wrong, we find his taste for excess, excess, pointing out the excesses of capitalism. Some like it, some don’t. We will talk about it with the filmmaker himself soon.
In theaters on 28/9.
Ticket To Paradise
Julia Roberts and George Clooney play divorced parents who rush to Bali to prevent their daughter from doing the same stupidity they committed: marrying the first comer. They will do anything to sabotage the project. The American romantic comedy of the start of the school year.
In theaters on 28/9.
Simone, the trip of the century
Accustomed to portraits of icons, by Edith Piaf (The kid) to Grace Kelly (Grace of Monaco), Olivier Dahan evokes Simone Veil. Wishing to film the woman rather than the symbol, the filmmaker tackles the great battles of the woman who was deported to Auschwitz at the age of 16 – from the legalization of abortion in 1974 to European reconstruction. Elsa Zylberstein and Rebecca Marder lend her their features.
In theaters on 12/12.
Le Petit Nicolas – What are we waiting for to be happy?
Crowned best feature film at the prestigious Annecy Animation Festival, this evocation of Petit Nicolas arrives in theaters just as Sempé – co-creator with Goscinny – has just left us. Immersed in the workshop of the two friends, the film brilliantly returns to their meeting, their friendship and their childhood secrets.

four years later girls, A film phenomenon, Lukas Dhont – the new prodigy of Belgian cinema – won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival for this second feature film. The story of a fusional friendship between two preteens. Lyrical, passionate, the film also gives us the grace to rediscover an exceptional Émilie Dequenne as a wounded mother. We won’t tell you more…
In theaters on 2/11.
Black Panther – Wakanda Forever
A tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who died in 2020 and who played Black Panther in 2018, Wakanda Forever focuses on the female characters of the kingdom which has just lost its sovereign T’Challa… This second episode is a film of superheroines played by Lupita Nyong ‘o and Letitia Wright.

We Love Cinema Days
The We Love Cinema Days formula evolves from season to season. The idea is still to put the cinema ticket at 6 euros (for all films in all theaters linked to the operation).

The marathon is doubled by a competition at the end of which a participant will win a lifetime subscription to the cinema. Four complexes are in the game including Kinepolis Brussels and Moviemills in Malmedy. Take part in our competition to win 4 places.
