• Napoleon



    Ce ne sera pas mon film préféré de Ridley Scott. Il y a des scènes impressionnantes comme la bataille finale de Waterloo (et pourtant je ne suis pas une fan de ce genre de scènes de guerre mais j'avoue que je n'ai jamais vu quelque chose d'aussi grandiose)... Mais il y a aussi des longueurs et des scènes sans vraiment beaucoup d'intérêt. Donc, de mon point de vue, le film est mal construit, mal équilibré. Le montage me semble raté, ou du moins perfectible. Mais pas sans intérêt !

  • Up for Love

    Up for Love


    The film starts very well with beautiful moments. Virginie Efira and Jean Dujardin form a good duo... The basic idea is interesting. But... But there are plenty of times when differences in size and Shot/reverse shots are far from perfect. We feel the retouching and the difficulty to make Dujardin appear smaller and Efira larger. And then the film gradually loses the light and romantic tone of the beginning to fall into a comedy that I found a little heavy,…

    Dan in Real Life


    I took great pleasure in seeing this film again. It is a nice romantic comedy, well rhythmic, rich, which works well. Steve Carell and Juliette Binoche are touching and the story remains quite credible with a lot of funny and moving moments at the same time. What gives it all its flavor is this omnipresent family, alive and joyful. Vision a little idyllic but comforting. A perfect movie for a little too long winter evening. To look under a plaid…

    Marguerite's Theorem


    "- Tu peux comprendre que j'ai peur pour toi ? Que je puisse m'inquiéter après tout ce qui s'est passé ?
    - Tu t'inquiéteras toujours. C'est pour ça que c'est plus facile de te mentir."
    Film not completely successful but which has the merit to highlight in what is a romantic comedy (light and often funny) characters who usually are not there and to make the portraits of truly singular people. Editing perfectible from my point of view, and…

    The Taste of Things


    "Le bonheur c'est de continuer à désirer ce que l'on a. Mais vous, ne vous ai-je jamais eue?"
    This film is very aesthetically successful: the shots are sublime from beginning to end. The rhythm is good. But I really missed something in the narration. I did not get bored but I would have liked the characters to have a little more density, that they deliver a little more of themselves. They left me hungry... 😅
    Ce film est…

  • The Nature of Love

    The Nature of Love


    I had been a little disappointed by "My Brother’s Wife" but nevertheless I had seen interesting things and a particular tone. I find this new film much more successful: the tone always (and the exoticism of this French of Quebec which I never tire of...), but also the form, the rhythm, the dialogues, the construction, and a very beautiful setting in images. This film would have been perfect to answer the subject I had at the Bac in philosophy: "What…

  • A Difficult Year

    A Difficult Year


    It won’t be my favorite film of this duo. The topics were interesting, the angle chosen too, but in the end the film remains a little hollow, funny but not hilarious, very repetitive, and so I was not excited, despite Noémie Merlant, Pio Marmaï and Jonathan Cohen, whom I saw much better elsewhere. I think their characters lack a bit of depth and are much too caricatured. It lacks finesse. However, Mathieu Amalric stands out. Perhaps because the scenes in…

  • And the Party Goes On

    And the Party Goes On


    "- Moi j'pense que justement ce qu'il nous faudrait c'est de nouvelles têtes.
    - Faudrait surtout de nouveaux cerveaux !"
    A little disappointed. Not that the film is bad or uninteresting, but I found that it did not have the strength of precedents. However, I took great pleasure in finding Ariane Ascaride, Jean Daroussin (which I find perfect everywhere), Gérard Meylan, Jacques Boudet... And to discover Lola Naymark. Of course we are talking about Marseille and more particularly the…

  • Close-Up



    "- For me, art it's the experience of what you've felt inside."
    As I have already seen in previous films of Kiarostami there is a mirror on cinema, with a documentary side. It is a film that tells a true story, about a man who spent several days with a family pretending being Moshen Makhmalbaf, a famous Iranian director, which led to his arrest and then to a trial that the film relates with actors who are partly the…

    Clouds of Sils Maria


    "- What's wrong with my acting? What do I need to do to make you admire me? Do I think too much? Huh? I'm too classical; not liberated like Jo-Ann? You're here to talk to me, so start talking.
    - I don't know. You, you, you can't be as accomplished as you are and as well-rounded as an actress as you are and still expect to hold on to the privileges of youth. It just doesn't work that that.

    Killers of the Flower Moon


    "- I was, uh, sent down from Washington D.C. to see about these murders.
    - See what about em?
    - See who's doin' it."
    Scorsese shows once again that he is a great filmmaker. There are remarkable shots in this film that made me think of the cinema of Jane Campion (which I particularly like). The chosen subject is also exciting. I had never heard of the Osage Indians, of their wealth, and of this terrible series of murders.…

    Kingdom of Heaven


    "- It has fallen to us, to defend Jerusalem, and we have made our preparations as well as they can be made. None of us took this city from Muslims. No Muslim of the great army now coming against us was born when this city was lost. We fight over an offence we did not give, against those who were not alive to be offended. What is Jerusalem? Your holy places lie over the Jewish temple that the Romans pulled…
