"Nomadland", a magnificent tale, somewhere between documentary and fiction , on these workers forced to move and live in their van or motorhome depending on their jobs, has gleaned 67 awards at festivals since winning the Lion d'Or in Venice last August and is on track to accumulate around ten nominations in all the major categories:

best film, best director, best screenplay… Some even give Frances McDormand, extraordinary, winner for the statuette of the best actress, even if she has already won in 2018 for "3 Billboards".

With her latest film Nomadland, Chinese director Chloé Zhao is asserting herself as a filmmaker to follow.

She is Hollywood's new darling. Born in Beijing, China in 1982, Chloé Zhao is on the way to conquer the cinema world. She has just been crowned on April 11, 2021 at the British cinema awards ceremony, the Bafta, for her film Nomadland. An intimate road movie about elderly Americans traveling the United States in a motorhome.

And Chloe Zhao is the big favorite of the next Oscars, organized on April 26th. Nomadland is nominated four times, notably in the categories of best film. The 38-year-old director will defend her chances in the “best director” category Chloe Zhao, who has already been crowned at the Golden Globes at the end of February, is the first woman to obtain four Oscar nominations in the same year according to Agence France Presse.

A childhood in Beijing and studies in the United States

Born Zhao Ting in Beijing into a wealthy family, Chloé Zhao left China at the age of 15 to attend an English boarding school. She then crossed the Atlantic Ocean to continue her studies in Los Angeles, then in New York.

In the program ? Political science then cinema, where she has in particular Spike Lee (Malcom X, Do the Right Thing, Da 5 Bloods) as a teacher.

In September 2015 and after four short films, she directed her first film, The Songs That My Brothers Learned Me. Selected at the Sundance Independent Film Festival the same year, this feature film tells the story of a teenage girl who dreams of leaving the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. A film for which Chloe Zhao had immersed herself in the life of the natives of South Dakota.

The Rider explosion

Two years later, it was with The Rider that she stood out. This film, awarded the Grand Prix in 2017 at the American Film Festival of Deauville in Normandy and at the Cannes Film Festival the same year on the Côte d'Azur, takes up an essential characteristic of the director's films: non-professional actors who interpret their own character, little or not romanticized.

"I'm not the kind of writer-director who can create his characters all alone in a dark room," she explained last February to New York Magazine.

These successes first drew praise in his native country. But comments from 2016 attributed to her in the American newspaper Filmmaker Magazine, where she appeared to be critical of China, have resurfaced. She has since been in trouble with Beijing's censorship.

The Rider, for example, has not been released in China and Nomadland is not guaranteed to be shown in Chinese cinemas, according to the newspaper Le Monde.

Marvel temptation

Based in the small town of Ojai in California, Chloé Zhao is however already looking to the future. A future under the sign of superheroes, since the filmmaker known and recognized for her independent films on a low budget has just produced the Marvel super-production called Eternals.

Expected for next November, the film will notably feature Angelina Jolie (Tomb Raider, Maleficent) and Richard Madden (Robb Stark from the Game of Thrones series).

Chloe Zhao is currently working on a new Dracula film for Universal Studios. A "futuristic western" version, according to the specialist magazine The Hollywood.

The 74th Bafta ceremony took place this Sunday, April 11, 2021.

Actor Anthony Hopkins won the award for best actor for his role in the film "The Father" by French director Florian Zeller. Anthony Hopkins is "proud" to have participated in this "powerful film". Anthony Hopkins plays an old man sinking into dementia.

, of Frenchman Florian Zeller, who

After the ceremony, the 83-year-old actor, joined in Wales where he is now, told reporters he was "proud" to be part of this "powerful film". Winning this prize "is a bonus", added this legend of the cinema who could do it again at the Oscars.

The American actor of Welsh origin did not expect this award. “I'm so stunned, I was sitting here actually painting, in my little room at the hotel, and I'm covered in paint, look you can see my hands,” he joked.

Adapted from the play of the same name, "The Father" was filmed in England. “It has been a real honor to work in your country which is truly a country of theater,” reacted Florian Zeller. "I am French, but in my heart I feel English", he added, speaking in a tuxedo, although in videoconference.

The film also won the award for best adapted screenplay.

La 46e édition des César s'est tenue dans un contexte de crise inédit, vendredi 12 mars à l'Olympia, à Paris. Une crise sanitaire avec l'épidémie de Covid-19 qui a contraint les salles à fermer depuis de longs mois mais aussi crise existentielle après le scandale Polanski en 2020.

Aussi Roschdy Zem, président cette année de cette grand-messe du cinéma français , a rappelé les nouvelles préoccupations. « Les règles du jeu changent, non pas pour que le jeu s’arrête, mais pour jouer à égalité cette fois », a-t-il déclaré.

Diversité et parité étaient les maîtres-mots . Les premières récompenses sont d'ailleurs allées à deux acteurs noirs, Jean-Pascal Zadi (« Tout simplement noir ») et Fathia Youssouf (« Mignonnes »), sacrés meilleurs espoirs.

C'est le film « Adieu les cons » d’Albert Dupontel., racontant les malheurs d’un employé capable de rater jusqu’à son propre suicide, qui a triomphé lors de la 46e cérémonie des Césars en décrochant sept récompenses, dont celle de la meilleure réalisation.

Laure Calamy a été récompensée du César de la meilleure actrice pour « Antoinette dans les Cévennes » tandis que Sami Bouajila a décroché le César du meilleur acteur pour « Un fils », de Mehdi Barsaoui.

Cette 46e édition de la cérémonie a été également marquée par de nombreux messages adressés à la ministre de la Culture, Roselyne Bachelot. La comédienne Corinne Masiero, alias le capitaine Marleau, n'a pas hésité à s'exhiber entièrement nue sur la scène, tampons hygiéniques sanguinolents aux oreilles, avec pour tout message « No culture, no future » sur le ventre et « rends-nous l’art, Jean » sur le dos :

Une tenue d'un goût douteux à l'image d'autres moments de cette cérémonie.

Robert Hossein (Abraham Hosseinoff de son vrai nom) s’est éteint jeudi 31 décembre 2020 à l’âge de 94 ans.

Comédien et metteur en scène, il est mort des suites du Covid-19 à l'hôpital quelques heures après avoir soufflé ses 93 bougies.

Il avait contracté le funeste virus lors d'une précédente hospitalisation .

Pour tous, il reste surtout Joffrey de Peyrac, le célèbre amant d’Angélique, Marquise des anges, sortie en 1964.

Il donne entre autres, la réplique à Michèle Mercier (Angélique) et Jean Rochefort (François Desgrez) dans les quatre autres suite de la saga.

Sa notoriété de metteur en scène décolle avec Responsabilité limitée, une pièce qu'il écrit, avec en tête d'affiche Jean Rochefort et Jean-Louis Trintignant.

Avec sa tête de voyou, il enchaîne les rôles de gangsters ou de policiers et rêve de devenir le Bogart à la française.

Il avait également joué dans Le Repos du guerrier (1962) aux côtés de Brigitte Bardot puis de Jean-Paul Belmondo dans Le professionnel (1981), où il jouait le rôle du commissaire Rosen.

Il est le metteur en scène de grands spectacles qui vont faire sa légende, avec la collaboration de son complice Alain Decaux après Le Cuirassé Potemkine au palais des sports de Paris.

Notre-Dame de Paris et son décor de trente tonnes, Les Misérables et ses 400 000 spectateurs, Jules César, de Shakespeare, même Ben Hur au Stade de France.

« Le théâtre, c'est une chose qui ne doit pas être emmerdante, a-t-il un jour confié à sa biographe Cécile Barthélémy. Je le hurle, je le déclare, quitte à passer pour un simpliste et un primaire.

Je ne travaille pas pour une élite, pour des gens qui ont la chance de savoir et sont totalement disponibles intellectuellement. »

Il a été reconnu par ses pairs mais aussi par la nation française : en 2006 il avait été fait Commandeur de la légion d’honneur puis Grand officier de l’ordre national du mérité en 2019.

C’est un monument du cinéma français qui s’est éteint, mardi 22 décembre 2020. Le comédien Claude Brasseur qui a marqué des générations en incarnant François Vidocq à la télévision et plusieurs grands rôles au cinéma, dont « Un éléphant ça trompe énormémement »est décédé mardi 22 décembre 2020 à l’âge de 84 ans, a annoncé son agent.

« Claude Brasseur est décédé ce jour dans la paix et la sérénité entouré des siens. Il n’a pas été victime du Covid.

Il sera inhumé à Paris dans le respect des règles sanitaires et reposera aux côtés de son père, au cimetière du Père-Lachaise à Paris », a annoncé Elisabeth Tanner, à la tête de l’agence Time Art.

Claude Brasseur a joué dans une centaine de films, dont les comédies populaires « Camping » et « La Boum », ainsi que dans de nombreuses pièces de théâtre.

Modeste, pudique, considérant son métier comme un jeu plutôt qu’un labeur, déterminé à se penser comme « un artisan qui appartient à un collectif »,

Issu d'une longue lignée de comédiens, fils de Pierre Brasseur et d'Odette Joyeux, et père d'Alexandre, cet acteur populaire excellait aussi bien sur le grand écran qu’à la télévision ou au théâtre.

En 1977, il a reçu le César du meilleur acteur dans un second rôle pour la comédie « Un éléphant ça trompe énormément »", puis la consécration trois ans plus tard, avec le César du meilleur acteur pour « La guerre des polices »

 Brigitte Fossey, sa partenaire dans le film « La Boum » qui marqua toute une génération , se souvient de lui comme « un homme d’une grande pudeur, une grande délicatesse et d’une grande élégance » avec « un humour fou, et derrière ça un cœur immense ».

Pour patienter avant les fêtes de fin d'année, Netflix a décidé de vous gâter.

Et on ne vous parle même pas de la belle sélection de films de Noël à découvrir en ce mois de décembre sur la plateforme !

Le géant de la svod dévoile ce mois-ci quatre longs-métrages originaux très attendus, à l'instar de Minuit dans l'univers, ambitieux projet de science-fiction post-apocalyptique de et avec George Clooney (qui a totalement changé de look pour l'occasion).

Casting royal du côté de la nouvelle réalisation de Ryan Murphy, The Prom, avec notamment Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman et James Corden.

David Fincher nous plongera avec Mank, dans le Hollywood des années 1930, revisité à travers le regard d'Herman J. Mankiewicz, le scénariste de Citizen Kane.

Ce mois de décembre sera également marqué par le mélo virtuose Le blues de Ma Rainey, avec Chadwick Boseman dans son dernier rôle.

Près d’un an jour pour jour après la diffusion de la saison 3, la saison 4 est sortie.Une réussite. La série est évidemment « The Crown ». Lancée dimanche 15 novembre sur Netflix, elle remporte tous les suffrages.

Fiction et réalité

Tout d'abord parce que la série de Peter Morgan a la chance de pouvoir compter sur de nombreuses archives, enregistrements, témoignages, interviews, dont ceux de Diana. Cette série américano-britannique.flirte en effet au plus près avec la vérité historique même si parfois elle prend quelques libertés en remaniant à la marge la réalité. Comme dans l'épisode 9 de la saison 4, intitulé « Avalanche » :

Alors qu' un matin de mars 1988, le prince Charles accompagné de ses amis fait du hors-piste sur la montagne du Gotschnagrat il se produit une avalanche. Dans la fiction le prince Charles est porté disparu enseveli sous la neige.Il n'en est rien dans la réalité puisqu'il a pu aussitôt porter secours à ses amis.

Parmi les autres « fausses » intrigues qui font débat, on retrouve notamment la lettre écrite par Lord Mountbatten à Charles juste avant sa mort lors d'un attentat, et dans laquelle il suggère à Charles, dont il est le grand-oncle maternel, d'épouser Diana. Dans un podcast, le créateur de la série a défendu ce choix comme « une manière de montrer le point de vue du personnage ».

The Crown a également choisi de taire certaines périodes encore plus difficiles de la vie de Diana. Notamment ce Noël 1981, durant lequel elle s’était volontairement jetée dans les escaliers de la résidence royale de Sandringham, alors qu’elle était enceinte de William et a été retrouvée inconsciente par la reine en personne.

Non seulement la réalité historique est cernée au plus près mais les personnages le sont également, même si l'on est obligé de forcer le trait...

On ne peut qu' adorer les personnages de Charles et Diana avec une mention toute particulière pour la jeune et inconnue Emma Corrin qui excelle dans le rôle de la Princesse Lady Di.

La démarche un peu gauche, la tête légèrement rentrée dans les épaules et penchée sur le côté...

Emma Corrin incarne une toute jeune Lady Diana, timide et pleine de charme, dans la saison 4.

Le naufrage du couple princier

Le naufrage du couple princier est en fond de toile tout au long de la quatrième saison et l'épisode où Diana apparaît sur scène dans un négligé en soie pour une chorégraphie surprise sur « Uptown Girl » de Billy Joel au Royal Opera House caractérise au mieux les fortes dissensions du couple princier.

Alors que Diana pense offrir le plus beau cadeau à son mari ,Charles, peu impressionné par la performance de sa femme, pense au contraire qu’elle a voulu se mettre en avant et lui voler la vedette. Et à la sortie du spectacle il se rend, dans la fiction, chez sa maitresse, abandonnant Diana.

Durant leur voyage en Australie, la spontanéité et la beauté de la jeune princesse séduisent aussi les foules à tel point qu'elle éclipse le prince de Galles.

Si « La princesse  a gagné le cœur de l'Australie', comme le titre le Times of London à l'époque, cela ne fait qu'exacerber les tensions au sein du couple princier, Charles se sentant à nouveau dépassé par le succès de son épouse. Le triangle amoureux entre le prince Charles, la princesse Diana et Camilla Parker-Bowles conduit au délitement du mariage du couple princier.

Une Lady Di à peine sortie de l'adolescence.

Pas étonnant que Lady Di est montrée sous deux jours bien différents tantôt joyeux, tantôt dépressif dans cette série . C'est une Diana adolescente (interprétée par Emma Corrin), solitaire au palais de Kensington, qui fait du roller dans les couloirs dorés avec son Walkman sur les oreilles vêtue de vichy rose.

Mais c’est surtout Diana aux prises avec ses démons qui marque les esprits, tous ses moments de solitude, les attaques qu’elle inflige à son corps, l’indifférence que lui montre la famille royale. Une lente descente aux enfers qui se traduit par ses troubles alimentaires. « Cet épisode met en scène un trouble alimentaire qui peut choquer », prévient la série The Crown, en introduction de plusieurs épisodes de sa quatrième saison.

Comment raconter à l'écran le mal-être de Lady Diana, désormais personnage central, et notamment sa boulimie ?

« Pour moi, puisqu'on essayait de décrire la boulimie de façon honnête, nous devions la montrer […] On ne peut pas rendre justice à tout ce qu’elle a vécu sans inclure cela.

C’était tellement symptomatique de ses troubles émotionnels et de toutes les émotions refoulées qu’elle avait en elle », a expliqué l’actrice Emma Corrin au magazine Variety.

Et le spectateur ne peut que prendre fait et cause pour cette « Princesse des cœurs ».

La relation ambiguë entre Elisabeth II et la première femme Premier ministre au Royaume-Uni

Toujours grâce à cette série le spectateur apprend à mieux cerner la forte personnalité de la reine tout comme celle de son premier ministre. En effet Gillian Anderson incarne de façon absolument bluffante le rôle de Margaret Thatcher qui fut la première femme Premier ministre au Royaume-Uni de même que l'actrice Olivia Coleman fait une performance dans le rôle de la Reine Elisabeth II.

Sensible, autoritaire, autocentrée, sentimentale, elle incarne à merveille cette reine qui règne depuis le 6 février 1952, soit depuis 68 ans…Et ses qualités comme ses défauts sont mis en valeur dans la relation empreinte tout à la fois de haine et d'admiration vis-à-vis de sa première Ministre à la tête du Royaume-Uni durant onze ans et vice-versa.

Toutes deux avaient le même sens du devoir, et étaient partagées entre leur rôle de mère et leur travail. Durant leurs « conversations de dames », comme les qualifiaient certains de leurs collègues masculins, elles évoquaient parfois des questions plus personnelles.

La Première ministre appréciait ses traditionnelles audiences hebdomadaires avec la souveraine :

« Elles sont tranquilles et efficaces et Sa Majesté apporte une formidable compréhension des enjeux actuels et toute l'étendue de son expérience », disait-elle.

Malgré des turbulences dans sa relation avec Élisabeth II- que ce soit sur la Guerre des Malouines en 1982, ou sur la grève des mineurs au milieu des années 1980 ou au sujet de l'apartheid en Afrique du Sud- Margaret Thatcher, contrainte de démissionner en 1991, trouva du soutien chez Élisabeth II.

Cette dernière ne cacha pas son regret de devoir se séparer d’elle.

Elle lui remit même deux décorations des plus prestigieuses :

l’ordre de la Jarretière mais aussi l’ordre du Mérite, qui n’a honoré que trois anciens chefs de gouvernement avant elle.

La souveraine assista également aux funérailles de l’ancienne Première ministre, en 2013, ce qu'elle n'avait fait que pour Winston Churchill.

Les aspérités et secrets de la famille royale

Autre qualité de The Crown : pour la première fois dans la série, les producteurs n’ont pas hésité non plus à montrer les mauvais côtés de la Reine et de sa famille.

Si Diana tente de cacher au public sa souffrance béante, les membres de la famille royale s’en aperçoivent mais préfèrent fermer les yeux.

L'indifférence voire la dureté du prince Charles infidèle vis-à-vis de sa jeune épouse participe de ce sentiment de froideur hautaine qui émane, à bien des égards semble-t-l, des membres de la famille royale.   

De plus la quatrième saison dévoile l'un des secrets les plus lourds des Windsor que la princesse Margaret, en pleine crise existentielle, déterre dans « Le principe héréditaire ».

Il s'agit de l'histoire de Nerissa et Katherine Bowes-Lyon, deux cousines de la reine handicapées, internées de longues années au Royal Earlswood Asylum for Mental Defectives et tout simplement rayées de l'arbre généalogique.

La saison 4 de The Crown leur consacre un épisode complet.

Les détracteurs de la série lui reprochent certes son mélange de faits historiques et de parties fictionnelles, qui peut selon eux troubler les spectateurs. Pourtant on attend avec impatience la saison suivante.

The next James Bond will be a black woman.

Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel) a black actress, will play the famous 007.

She is aware of the immensity of the task.

“I want to represent a 100% and authentically black experience,” she said.

Lashana Lynch, who plays Nomi, new agent 007 who replaces James Bond by interim while he went into exile, in the next installment of the No Time Die saga, was going to take over the secret agent's number.

The announcement of this film caused a lot of reaction.

Last year, the actress had already raised this subject of the evolution of James Bond in the era of #MeToo and the reactions of toxic fans to The Hollywood Reporter.

In an interview published in Harper's Bazaar magazine, Lashana Lynch once again said that being the first black woman to play an agent with the infamous "license to kill" is not easy.

The 32-year-old actress has suffered harassment on social networks, and racist and misogynistic attacks.

"The opening of the word is underway"

“I'm a black woman - if it had been another black woman in the role, the same thing would have happened, she would have suffered the same attacks, the same abuse,” said Lashana Lynch. "I just have to remember that openness is underway, and that I'm part of something that will be very, very revolutionary."

She adds that it was this prospect of playing 007 that made her want to star in Die Can Wait, detailing to the magazine that she worked closely with screenwriter Phoebe Waller Bridge (Fleabag) to ensure Nomi would bring "a female perspective. innovative ”.

"I wanted it to be written with subtlety, to be able to believe in it and even to make it a little uncomfortable", she confides.

No more Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Daniel Craig, the next James Bond, "Die can wait", will be revolutionary. No more white and virile men who charm the James Bond girls !!!

“Die can wait” will be, as she said, “nuanced”! Notice to the spectator !

"Goldfinger ”and“ With love from Russia ”, he was the first to portray James Bond in the cinema and donned the costume of Agent 007 in six films in the 1960s.

He had also played under the direction of Hitchcock, Huston and Lumet, and given, older, his features to the father of Indiana Jones or to William de Baskerville in "The Name of the Rose"

British actor Sean Connery has died at the age of 90 on Saturday October 31, 2020, his family told the BBC.

Sir Sean Connery died overnight surrounded by family members while in Nassau, Bahamas.

He had "not been well for quite some time," his son Jason Connery told the BBC.

Born August 25, 1930 in Edinburgh, Scotland, Sean Connery left school early and enlisted in the Navy at 16.

It is from this time that his two tattoos "Mum and dad" and "Scotland forever" date on the right forearm.

Returned to civilian life after three years after an ulcer, he went on to do odd jobs, lifeguard, mason, truck driver but also charcoal deliverer, bodyguard and coffin polisher.

He also embarked on bodybuilding, finishing third in the Mister Universe 1950 competition, before moving at 21 to the theater and film studios where he made a few appearances from 1955.

The chance to play Ian Fleming's hero, Agent 007, was offered to him by a London Express competition he won in 1961.

From then on, Sean Connery gained worldwide notoriety overnight by becoming Bond in six films from 1962 to 1971: James Bond 007 against Dr No, With love from Russia, Goldfinger, Operation Tonnerre, We only live twice and Les diamonds are forever.

The actor gives for a long time the assets of elegance and charm to the agent of the British secret services, faithful to the queen but inveterate seducer.

"He was and will always be remembered as the original James Bond whose indelible entry into film history began when he said those unforgettable words

My name is Bond ... James Bond ", the producers of the saga Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli paid tribute to him in a statement."

He is undoubtedly largely responsible for the success of the film series and we will be forever grateful to him, ”they added.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, however, Sean Connery managed to get out of the image of 007 with some important films, starting with No Spring for Marnie by Alfred Hitchcock, released in 1964, a thriller inspired by a novel by Winston Graham where Connery gives the answer to a disturbing Tippi Hedren.

Another major film, The Crime on the Orient Express, an adaptation of Agatha Christie by Sidney Lumet, released in 1974, in which Connery plays Colonel Arbuthnot.

Also noteworthy during the 1970s The Man Who Wished To Be King (1975), a historical film by John Huston, A Bridge Too Far (1977) by Richard Attenborough, and especially Zardoz, a film in which Sean Connery courageously detaches himself from the somewhat polished image of spy 007.

In this science fiction film by John Boorman, Connery and his partner Charlotte Rampling don amazing costumes and agree to endure long hours of makeup.

After several uncertain years, Sean Connery is renewing himself in some great commercial successes such as The Name of the Rose (1986) adaptation of the bestseller of Umberto Eco by Jean-Jacques Annaud, Les Incorruptibles (1987), Highlander (1986) and the last episode of Steven Spielberg's saga, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989).

The actor has enjoyed a long career crowned with numerous awards. In 1988, Sean Connery received the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in The Untouchables. He was also awarded two Bafta and three Golden Globes.

His career enabled him to be knighted by the Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II. But only in 2000, no doubt because of his public support for Scottish separatists. Indeed, only his fight for the autonomy of his native Scotland raised some eyebrows.

In Scotland, on the other hand, the tributes rained on the child of the country, the former Scottish Prime Minister Alex Salmond describing him as "the most brilliant Scots in the world, the last of Hollywood stars, the unforgettable Bond".

"He was an international legend but first and foremost a patriotic and proud Scotsman," the current head of the Scottish government, Nicola Sturgeon, said on Twitter, recalling that he was defending the independence of Scotland. “Our nation is mourning one of its oldest sons,” she added.

All our thoughts at this moment of mourning to his family ....!

The American series Emily in Paris, available since Friday, October 2 on Netflix, was shot in Paris. Fruit of the imagination of the creator of Beverly Hills, Sex and the City and Younger, Darren Star, the series chronicles the Parisian tribulations of Emily Cooper, an ambitious young executive from Chicago, who unexpectedly lands a position in a major marketing agency Parisian.

Emily is in awe of her new picturesque surroundings and the life-changing pain au chocolat town. And she's very excited to share her ideas on how to improve the company's social media presence, but her new colleagues Luc (Bruno Gouery) and Julien (Samuel Arnold) aren't as thrilled with her presence. For starters, Emily doesn't speak French (“Fake it 'til you make it!” Emily retorts), and her courageous approach to work is so American.

The ten 30-minute episodes therefore panics social networks. And for good reason: the new American series collects clichés on France and Paris, which more often looks like an advertisement for perfume than anything else. On the menu: croissants, berets, vintage cafes on the banks of the Seine and good wine. A postcard Paris that the Anglo-Saxon press was quick to mock. When The Independent sees it as a sort of “Westworld-style theme park setting”, the Guardian speaks of a “cartoon version of Paris”. You will understand, in Emily In Paris, Darren Star made the rather surprising choice to surf without any finesse on the biggest Parisian clichés.

Brigitte Macron staging

Shot during the summer of 2019 in the streets of Paris and its suburbs, the series even evokes Brigitte Macron from the first minutes by the character of Kate Walsh, the boss of Emily in the series. “The French like older women. Look at their president, he's young and sexy and he married his teacher. "

In episode 2, Emily whose mission is to promote a product against vaginal dryness Emily, resolutely feminist, is offended when she learns that the word "vagina" is masculine in the French language. So, the young woman decides to post on Instagram a photo of the product accompanied by the following caption: "The vagina is not masculine!" The following scene takes place at the Élysée where a Brigitte Macron, from behind, receives an SMS from Carla Bruni suggesting that she look at the Instagram post of a famous ... "Emily in Paris". Neither one nor two, the first lady retweeted the post with the comment “Exactly!”. Enough to explode the counter of the American on social networks.

No doubt, Emily in Paris is indeed an American series that takes a sharp look at a certain Parisianism.

Qual bond unites Eden, the slave of the nineteenth century, and Veronica, contemporary author?

This horrific double-bottomed thriller is a violent reminder that evil does not die.

Producer Sean McKittrick struck a blow with Get Out, directed by Jordan Peele, which transposes the American black cause into the fantasy register, then with Us, which confronts a family with its shadow doubles.

These two outstanding films had only the fault of pouring into the gore.

With Antebellum, a thriller concealing a double-triggered narrative device signed by Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz, the producer returns to the racial question in a more frontal, more realistic, more revolting way.

Strange echoes resound between 1863 and 2019.

Plantation hell reveals its monstrous reality in a twist worthy of M. Night Shyamalan's Village.

Antebellum, poignant fiction, recalls that the demons of the past are indestructible and that Black Lives Matter is a constant battle.

A must see !

Antebellum, by Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz (United States, 2019), with Janelle Monáe, Jena Malone, Kiersey Clemons, 1h46

La pandémie de coronavirus a mis un coup d'arrêt à la plupart des grosses productions hollywoodiennes depuis le printemps dernier, ce qui a lourdement pesé sur les revenus des stars: outre leur cachet, les stars de cinéma gagnent également de l'argent sur les bénéfices réalisés par les films- ce qui signifie que s'ils ne sortent en salles, leurs revenus chutent. Heureusement, un bon nombre d'entre elles, tirent l'essentiel de leur argent de la télévision et / ou des services de streaming.

Cette fermeture des cinémas à cause du Covid-19 et l'absence de nouveaux films a permis à plusieurs autres vedettes du petit écran de se placer dans le peloton de tête aux côtés de Sofia Vergara, observe Forbes..

Sofia Vergara, a récupéré la première place. La star de la série Modern Family, qui est également maintenant juge sur America's Got Talent - a engrangé près de 43 millions de dollars au cours des 12 derniers mois en salaire et autres. L'année dernière, la comédienne colombienne de 48 ans était deuxième. Elle a gagné 500 000 dollars par épisode pour la dernière saison de Modern Family, lauréat d'un Emmy, qui s'est terminée plus tôt cette année. La publication américaine a estimé qu'elle gagnerait « au moins 10 millions de dollars par saison » pour sa présence dans le jury d'America's Got Talent, l'une des émissions les plus populaires aux États-Unis.

Parmi elles on retrouve Ellen Pompeo (« Grey's Anatomy »; 8e place avec 19 millions) et Elisabeth Moss (« The Handmaid's Tale: la Servante Ecarlate »; 9e place avec 16 millions).

La star afro-américaine Viola Davis fait son apparition dans le Top 10 pour la première fois (10e place; 15,5 millions) avec son rôle principal dans la série policière « Murder », pourtant depuis 2014 sur la chaîne ABC, et la série « Le blues de Ma Rainey » qui sera prochainement diffusé par Netflix.

Hormis Angelina Jolie ( 2 e place) et Emily Blunt (6e place avec 22,5 millions), toutes les actrices du Top 10 ont perçu la majorité de leurs revenus de la télévision ou de la vidéo à la demande, y compris une star du cinéma confirmée comme Meryl Streep (5e place; 24 millions).

Au total, les dix actrices les mieux payées au monde en 2020 ont engrangé 254 millions de dollars (de juin 2019 à juin 2020), montant en baisse de 20% par rapport à l'année précédente.

A titre de comparaison, les dix acteurs les mieux payés sur la même période ont obtenu plus du double, près de 550 millions de dollars. Le numéro un, Dwayne « The Rock » Johnson, affichait 87,5 millions de revenus, selon le classement masculin publié par Forbes le mois dernier.

Le top 10 féminin:

1. Sofia Vergara (43 millions de dollars)

2. Angelina Jolie (35,5 millions)

3. Gal Gadot (31,5 millions)

4. Melissa McCarthy (25 millions)

5. Meryl Streep (24 millions)

6. Emily Blunt (22,5 milions)

7. Nicole Kidman (22 millions)

8. Ellen Pompeo (19 millions)

9. Elisabeth Moss (16 millions)

10 Viola Davis (15,5 millions)

In May, the website Deadline revealed that actor Tom Cruise was preparing to push its limits further by embarking on the project to make the first film shot entirely in space. Today, the project is taking shape: Tom Cruise will be the first man to appear in a film shot in space.

Just before the summer, we learned that the Mission Impossible star of the franchise was preparing to team up with Elon Musk and crews from SpaceX, Elon Musk's company, for the all-new project to go to space to shoot there. a movie. At the announcement of this "cinémato-spatial" project, the American media Deadline announced that Doug Liman, director of La Mémoire dans la Peau, would find the 57-year-old actor after working together on Edge of Tomorrow and Barry Seal. The filmmaker had already written a first draft of the scenario and would be in charge of putting it into images.

Today, the titanic project of this film in space is taking shape: a date to go to space aboard the International Space Station has already been planned, as confirmed on the SpaceShuttleAlmanac Twitter account.

So its confirmed that @CommanderMLA is flying the @Axiom_Space @SpaceX #CrewDragon tourist mission with Director @DougLiman & Tom Cruise. One seat still to be filled. They are to launch in October, 2021.

Space Shuttle Almanac, which lists all the reports, flight plans and specifications of the American, Russian and Chinese space agencies, therefore spotted this date in a recent calendar published by the management of the ISS. On Twitter, the specialized site affirms that the Hollywood actor, the director of the future film, Doug Liman as well as an unidentified third person will be there. They will be taken to the ISS aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon space shuttle, (in collaboration with the private company Axiom), piloted by Michael Lopez-Alegria, a veteran pilot and record holder for spacewalks at The NASA..

Indeed, the actor and the director will take off in October 2021 to shoot the images of this film which does not yet have a title. The date of this trip is written in black and white on the ISS diary. There is still a seat available for this space flight, perhaps for Tom Cruise's partner?

If the shooting goes off without a hitch, this film will be the first shot at 404 kilometers above sea level, well beyond the stratosphere. The synopsis of the film has not yet been released, Cruise simply specifying that it will be action-oriented and that it will not be an episode of Mission: Impossible, a saga also still in progress under the directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

The stay on the international space station will obviously be very short, it should only last a few days. This is not much, if we compare to the other missions: that of the French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, scheduled for March 2021, will last until August of the same year.

It is not yet known whether the actor and the director will shoot images for their event film as soon as this space flight or if it is organized to carry out locations, but given the cost of such a stay on the ISS and the Considerable organization that this requires (including intense physical training for Cruise and Liman in order to withstand the flight), there is a chance that they will film scenes directly in this short niche.

The dream of Tom Cruise (who was already working on this kind of project in the early 2000s with James Cameron) therefore seems on the verge of coming true.

Avec « Mignonnes », Netflix qui a acquis les droits du film « Mignonnes », réalisé par Maïmouna Doucouré. est accusé de diffuser un film pour pédophiles.Qu'en est-il ?

Accusé de mettre en scène la sexualisation des enfants, le film primé au festival de Sundance déclenche la polémique, alors que d'autres y voient un portrait authentique de jeunes filles qui grandissent.

L’histoire est celle d’une jeune fille écartelée entre le mode de vie de sa famille sénégalaise et musulmane, et les habitudes occidentales de ses camarades de classe françaises. Mais les scènes du film où l’on voit des fillettes danser lascivement ne sont pas passés inaperçues et d'aucuns d'y voir de la pornographie infantile. Une pétition Change.org pour faire retirer le film de Netflix a même récolté environ 360 000 signatures.

« Ce film est scandaleux car il sexualise une jeune fille de ONZE ans pour le plus grand plaisir des pédophiles et il constitue une très mauvaise influence pour nos enfants ! Cette tranche d’âge n’a pas besoin de ce type de contenu, encore moins à une époque où le trafic sexuel et la pédophilie sont si répandus ! Aucune excuse, ce contenu est dangereux ! », peut-on lire dans la description de la pétition.

D'autant que Netflix a choisi tout d'abord une image des jeunes actrices dans des poses provocantes pour présenter « Mignonnes », au lieu d’utiliser l’affiche originale du film, qui les montrait en pleine séance de shopping. Netflix a ensuite retiré cette image et s’est excusé pour ce marketing jugé tendancieux. Netflix a aussi proposé une traduction discutable de son titre (ndt: « Cuties » en anglais possède une connotation sexualisée)

La plate-forme de streaming a défendu l’inclusion du film à son catalogue en le décrivant comme « une critique sociale de la sexualisation des enfants » plutôt qu’une objectification volontaire de jeunes filles.

C'est que la réalisatrice est une femme qui fait en quelque sorte son autobiographie et peint l'état de la société d'aujourd'hui en lançant une réflexion. Elle évoque en effet ce qui l’a inspirée pour le film: « Un jour, j’ai vu des jeunes filles monter sur scène et danser divinement bien. Mais c’était vraiment dérangeant à regarder, car elles dansaient comme des adultes, comme ces femmes que l’on voit dans les clips. C’est à ce moment que j’ai commencé à me demander si elles étaient conscientes du message qu’elles renvoyaient en dansant de manière si sexualisée ».

À contre-courant, « Mignonnes » nous fait plonger dans le récit authentique de la réalité de la vie de jeunes filles qui grandissent avec la menace d’être exploitées sexuellement, d’après la Docteure Helen Jacey, scénariste et PDG de Shedunnit Productions.

Un terrible constat qui mériterait sans aucun doute de se faire son propre critique...

William Boyd est catégorique : le plus célèbre des agents de Sa Majesté résidait au 25 Wellington Square, dans le quartier londonien de Chelsea.

C'est ce que l'auteur britannique William Boyd affirme alors que cette information n'a jamais été dévoilée par le créateur du personnage. Pour parvenir à découvrir cette adresse-mystère, William Boyd a examiné minutieusement la vie de Ian Fleming et ses célèbres ouvrages.

Dans les années 1950 et 1960, Ian Fleming a écrit au total 14 livres sur James Bond, dont deux recueils de nouvelles, mais il s'était simplement contenté de dire que son charismatique agent secret habitait dans le quartier de Chelsea.

Après avoir relu l'intégralité de la série avant de rédiger en 2013 sa propre suite, dans un roman intitulé Solo, William Boyd a estimé dans le supplément littéraire du Times, jeudi 16 juillet, que l'espion britannique vivait au 25 Wellington Square, à Chelsea. « C'est là que se trouvait l'appartement de James Bond », a affirmé l'écrivain. James Bond étant un personnage de fiction, il est « évident qu'il ne vivait pas vraiment quelque part », précise l'auteur, qui estime en revanche qu'on pouvait retrouver l'appartement dont s'était inspiré l'auteur.

William Boyd a commencé par recouper les éléments présentés dans divers ouvrages de la série. Dans Moonraker (paru en 1955), Ian Fleming dépeint le logis de James Bond comme « un appartement confortable donnant sur un square planté d'arbres, à côté de la King's Road », célèbre rue de Chelsea. William Boyd a ensuite utilisé la description donnée dans Opération Tonnerre (1961), selon laquelle l'appartement n'était pas situé très loin en voiture de Hyde Park, pour réduire son périmètre à Wellington Square.

Afin de déterminer le numéro exact, l'auteur britannique s'est ensuite penché sur la vie personnelle de Ian Fleming, s'intéressant entre autres à sa période en tant que journaliste au Sunday Times. Il s'est alors aperçu qu'un de ses collègues, le critique littéraire Desmond MacCarthy, habitait au 25 Wellington Square. Lui et sa femme étaient connus pour être des « boute-en-train légendaires », qui recevaient souvent dans leur maison « devenue une sorte de salon ».

« Les preuves sont convaincantes. Il est très probable que Ian Fleming soit allé à une ou plusieurs des fêtes données par les MacCarthys », affirme William Boyd. Selon lui, l'appartement du couple disposait effectivement d'un « long salon aux grandes fenêtres », comme décrit dans Bons baisers de Russie (1957) .

Boyd a ensuite utilisé la description donnée dans Opération Tonnerre (1961), selon laquelle l'appartement n'était pas situé très loin en voiture de Hyde Park, pour réduire son périmètre à Wellington Square.

Saviez-vous que la programmation du film Le Corniaud, le 4 mars dernier sur France 2 a réuni 3,7 millions de personnes, soit 15,9% du PDA. Louis De Funès fait partie du patrimoine culturel français, de notre imaginaire commun au même titre que Johnny Hallyday ! .

Louis de Funès revient donc sur le devant de la scène. Presque quarante ans après sa mort, le monstre sacré du cinéma français est à l'honneur de la Cinémathèque française, qui lui consacre une grande exposition. Le temple de la cinéphilie accueille l’icône de la comédie populaire à la française, avec une rétrospective de trente-cinq films.« Dans une maison où il n'a pas eu sa place, c'était important de lui rendre hommage », estime Alain Kruger, commissaire de l'exposition qui ouvre ce mercredi 15 juillet 2020 dans le temple du septième art.

Cette annonce coincide alors que le musée Louis de Funès rouvre ses portes cet été à Saint-Raphaël.

N' en déplaise à quelques intellectuels chagrins qui s'insurgent  ne comprenant pas comment le haut-lieu de la cinéphilie française peut célébrer, après Scorsese, Gus Van Sant et Sergio Leone, l'interprète de Pouic-Pouic et du Gendarme !

Louis de Funès représente à lui seul toute une chronologie du cinéma français. On l’a vu en noir et blanc dans les années 40-50, chez Jack Becker et Claude Barma qui lui ont donné ses premiers petits rôles.

Il a également travaillé pour Sacha Guitry, roi du Tout-Paris. Il a ensuite donné la réplique à Robert Lamoureux dans Papa, maman, la bonne et moi, de Jean-Paul Le Chanois, et à Jean Gabin dans l’incontournable Traversée de Paris de Claude Autant-Lara.

Au tournant des années 60 il a commencé à collaborer avec Jean Girault. Dans la grande saga du Gendarme, il est celui autour de qui tout tournait, à commencer par les actrices qui se damnaient pourêtre son épouse sur grand écran. Il y aura Jacqueline Maillan, Annie Girardot et, bien évidemment, Claude Gensac.

Il est celui qui a joué avec toutes les stars de l’après-guerre, de Jean Marais à Lino Ventura, en passant par Michel Serrault.

De Funès était aussi un touche-à-tout. Comédien, au cinéma mais aussi beaucoup au théâtre, il était également doubleur de films américains, conteur d’historiettes pour enfants, chanteur et pianiste hors pair. Il il a co-réalisé notamment L'Avare avec Jean Girault et participé à l'écriture d'une demi-douzaine de scénarios avec plus ou moins de succès.

Retracer la carrière de De Funès, c’est donc un moyen d’évoquer tous ces grands noms qui sont le cinéma français,

Mais Louis De Funès , c'est aussi ce Grand Monsieur du cinéma qui a inventé une façon de jouer, une façon de faire rire, une façon de se tourner en ridicule.

On reconnaît notamment son génie dans la capacité qu’il avait d'improviser. Pour preuve, cette scène de L’Homme orchestre (1970) où il raconte Le Loup et l’Agneau à sa manière. Une séquence tournée en une seule prise, par le réalisateur Serge Korber qui ne l’avait pas préparée, laissant l’artiste à son pouvoir de création!

« De Funès (…) c'est un corps branché sur générateur électrique qui occupe tout l'écran, un visage tellement anodin qu'il en devient archétypal, une expressivité qui attire la caméra en éclipsant tout ce qui l'entoure, bref un parfait objet de cinéma à lui tout seul, transfigurant les codes du boulevard franchouillard. », écrit un spécialiste de cinéma.

La réelle présence de ce petit homme exaspérant sculpte à chaque geste la légende d'un héros populaire qui donne à rire. Il est un archétype: celui du bourgeois français catholique, qui ne croit plus au Bon Dieu que par conformisme, et fait passer ses intérêts avant ceux du drapeau.

Il incarne la médiocrité du citoyen lambda, toujours persuadé d'être dans son bon droit, de penser comme il faut, de défendre les vraies valeurs de la France. Le voir sortir de ses gonds dès que quiconque ose remettre en question ses certitudes est un délice de tous les instants.

Si parfois on a du mal à adhérer au jeu outrancier de l'acteur et aux univers dans lesquels il évoluait, de Funès a cependant endossé le rôle du bourgeois étriqué et mesquin sans provoquer autre chose que le rire, sans jamais susciter la rancœur ou l'indignation.

Si parfois de Funès s'est commis dans d'épouvantables navets ,la scène de la visite de l'appartement de Blas dans La Folie des grandeurs, ou le «Salomon, vous êtes juif?» de Rabbi Jacob resteront à jamais des pépites du comique français, dans la filiation directe de Molière.

De grands réalisateurs l'avaient compris de Oury, Zidi, en passant par Hunebelle, à Girault qui ont dirigé Louis de Funès dans leurs longs-métrages.

Décédé il y a 36 ans, de Funès inspire encore des générations d’artistes, d’Alexandre Astier à Vincent Dedienne, qui revendiquent son héritage.

Et François Truffaut, novateur de la Nouvelle Vague, n'avait-il pas confié dans une lettre à Gérard Oury « J'ai beaucoup aimé Le Corniaud... ».

Cette année, alors que des manifestations contre le racisme se multiplient aux États-Unis avec le mouvement #BlackLivesMatter et que la parole des femmes se libère dans le milieu, l’Académie des Oscars a compris qu’il était urgent de changer son image.

Régulièrement accusée d’être trop masculine et trop blanche et de perpétuer la domination patriarcale dans l’industrie du cinéma, l’Académie a en effet publié mardi 30 juin la liste des 819 nouveaux membres invités à rejoindre ses rangs. Parmi les 819 nouveaux membres 45 % sont des femmes et 36 % issus de minorités ethniques, « sous-représentées dans l'organisation ».

Parmi les nouveaux arrivants figurent notamment l’actrice Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians), Cynthia Erivo (Harriet), Eva Longoria et 25 Français, dont les cinéastes Ladj Ly (Les Misérables) et l’actrice Adèle Haenel, incarnation du mouvement MeToo en France, après avoir accusé le réalisateur Christophe Ruggia d' « attouchements répétés ». Elle s'était illustrée également en quittant la cérémonie des César après l'attribution du Meilleur film à Roman Polanski, accusé de viol et d'agression sexuelle.

Cet élan n’est pas nouveau. En 2016, l’Académie – jusque-là plutôt discrète sur sa composition - avait affronté la critique et révélé que ses 6 000 membres à l’époque (près de 10 000 aujourd’hui) étaient à 93 % blancs et à 76 % des hommes. Dans la foulée, elle avait promis un doublement du nombre de femmes et de membres issus de minorités ethniques d'ici 2020.

Depuis, chaque année, elle coopte des centaines de nouveaux membres plus jeunes, en sélectionnant des représentants des minorités, bien au-delà des frontières du cinéma américain et d'Hollywood. Autrefois limitées à 300 élus par an, ces nouvelles promotions atteignent maintenant plus de 800 recrues, de 68 nationalités différentes cette année.

En 2020, « l'Académie a dépassé les deux objectifs » de 2016, se réjouit-elle dans un communiqué. Et si les nouveaux élus acceptent de rejoindre ses rangs, ce qui est généralement le cas, la proportion de femmes au sein de l'Académie passera à 33% (contre 24 % en 2015) et celle des minorités à 19 % (contre 7 % en 2015).

Ava DuVernay, militante dont la filmographie ne cesse de dénoncer le racisme latent de la société et des institutions américaines envers la communauté noire, a salué cette évolution des mentalités au sein de l'Académie des Oscars.

Un gage d'ouverture du palmarès

Sachant que seuls les membres désignent les nommés pour les prix, l’évolution de l’Académie est-il un gage d’ouverture du palmarès ?

Certains estiment déjà que le recrutement plus ouvert de ces dernières années a permis le sacre en 2020 de « Parasite », film sud-coréen et premier long-métrage en langue étrangère à remporter le prix du « meilleur film ».

Néanmoins, malgré les efforts, le cru 2020 n’a pas échappé à ses vieux démons, comme l’illustre le retour en force du hashtag #OscarSoWhite (Oscars si blancs), émergé en 2015 alors que l’académie n'avait nommé aucun acteur issu de la diversité. Et une seule personnalité afro-américaine faisait partie des nommés cette année : Cynthia Erivo pour son rôle dans Harriet...

Quant à la sous-représentation des femmes parmi les prix les plus prestigieux, c’est une constante depuis 1929 et la 92e édition ne l’a pas démenti. L’absence de réalisatrices parmi les « oscarisables » a été dénoncée par le hashtag #OscarsSoMale (Oscars si masculins) sur les réseaux sociaux.

Et sur le tapis rouge, Natalie Portman avait arboré sur une cape brodée les noms des réalisatrices ignorées par les Oscars...

Up close Jackie, his film devoted to Jackie Kennedy with Natalie Portman in the title role, the Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín tackles a new biopic dedicated to another icon of the XXth century, Princess Diana.

According to revelations from the American site Deadline Kristen Stewart will play the role of the Princess of Wales in this feature film called Spencer, in reference to the young girl name of Diana before her marriage to Charles.

The script for the film, by Steven Knight, the creator of the Peaky Blinders series, focuses on a decisive weekend during the Christmas holidays of 1990.

In the royal residence of Sandringham, Lady Di indeed takes the firm decision to divorce the prince and thus the British Crown.

A "reverse fairy tale", according to the filmmaker.

Undoubtedly the most fashionable actress of the moment, Kristen Stewart is not at its first attempt in terms of biographical film, she who has just embodied in the film unpublished in France Seberg the muse of the New Wave Jean Seberg (Breathless).

Pablo Larraín welcomes his choice. "Kristen is one of the best actresses on the market today," he told Deadline. (…) I think it will offer an intriguing and breathtaking performance.

It is a force of nature ”, assures the Chilean director.

The shooting of the film should not start before the beginning of 2021.

Huge actor of cinema and theater, producer and director also, Michel Piccoli died on May 12, at the age of 94 years, announced, Monday, May 18, his family. Died following a stroke, he was surrounded by his wife, Ludivine, and their two children Inord and Missia.

An eclectic choice but loyalty to its directors

With a remarkable longevity, he toured under the direction of the greatest, be it Buñuel Sautet, Renoir, Resnais, Demy, Melville, Varda or Hitchcock. Revealed by “Le Mépris” by Godard (1963) where he formed a couple with Brigitte Bardot, the actor wore his seductive physique with bushy eyebrows and haunting voice, in more than 150 films, from the provocative of “La Grande Food ”to the doubtful pope of“ Habemus papam ”(2011), his last big role on screen.

During the 1960s, he toured with René Clément (Paris brûlle-il?, 1966), Alain Resnais (La guerre est finie, 1966), Roger Vadim (La Curée, 1966), Alain Cavalier (La Chamade, 1968), Jacques Demy (Les Demoiselles de Rochefort, 1967) or Alfred Hitchcock (L'Etau, 1969).

He also made no less than eight films with the director of Spanish origin, naturalized Mexican interpreting troubled characters as in La Mort en ce jardin (1956), The Diary of a Chambermaid (1964), Belle de jour (1967) , The Milky Way (1969), The discreet charm of the bourgeoisie (1972), The Phantom of freedom (1974) .. In turn a frustrated and libidinous bourgeois, manipulative brothel client and even a police prefect he interprets these roles by satisfying his taste for derision.

In the 1970s he chained films under the direction of Claude Sautet in Les Choses de la vie (1970), alongside Romy Schneider, Max et les ferrailleurs (1971). or, Vincent, François, Paul… and the others (1974).

He also made numerous films with Portuguese-speaking director Manoel de Oliveira and three films with Claude Chabrol.

In addition, he started with Marco Ferreri a long collaboration between 1969 and 1981, seven films with the subversive director Milan. The highlight of this collaboration is, of course, La Grande Bouffe, one of the biggest scandals of the Cannes Film Festival in 1973. The actor embodies a participant in a gastronomic seminar transforming into a scatological and nihilistic orgy.

"I had deeply and intimately passionate friendships with men," commented the man who was also very close to the actors Ugo Tognazzi or Marcello Mastroianni.

His refusal of career plans and his “anti-star” side also led him to shoot author films: Leos Carax, Jean-Claude Brisseau, Jacques Doillon.

A cultivated man, fine and full of irony, the man who has always been an atheist had delivered his last great role in a papal cassock. It was in 2011 with "Habemus papam" by Nanni Moretti, where he embodied a newly elected pope and tortured by the fear of not being up to par

Four times nominated for the César in particular for "La Belle Noiseuse" by Jacques Rivette in 1991, he has never been awarded by the Academy.

A theatrical career

In addition to his film career, Michel Piccoli also distinguished himself in the theater. It was by performing at 9 years old, on stage, a character from Andersen's tale, The Emperor's New Clothes , that his passion for theater was born. This silent boy had discovered the double “wonder” of being listened to by adults and of telling a story that was not his own.

Later he met the most prominent dramatic directors: Jacques Audiberti, Jean Vilar, Jean-Marie Serreau, Peter Brook, Luc Bondy, Patrice Chéreau and even André Engel. The latter entrusted him, in 2009, with the role of Minetti, in the eponymous play by the Austrian author Thomas Bernhard (premiered in 1977). Michel Piccoli was then 83 years old and his performance was hailed by critics.

A cinematic conception against the current

Michel Piccoli had a conception against the tide of the world of cinema. In 1970, during an interview shared on May 18 on the INA website, he spoke of his conception of the profession of actor.

"I'm not obsessed with wanting to play the heroes. It happens that, there are some actors like that who only want to play the heroes and who do not want to play the defeated for example ”, he had explained. Admiring young people, Michel Piccoli was not afraid that they would take his place. “That's why I admire them and why they interest me. The more I can live with them the more I will stay young, the more they will accept me. If I can talk to them, well that's fine. But of course I am already overwhelmed ”.

Curious and insatiable, Michel Piccoli intended to exercise his profession in an “extravagant” way. The adjective had also inspired the title of the documentary “L'Extravagant Monsieur Piccoli” which Yves Jeuland had devoted to him in 2015.

He “enjoyed playing extravagance or the most disturbing delusions, breaking [his] image,” he said, before embarking on directing himself, at 70 years old.

This film legend, modest and enigmatic, born in 1925 into a family of musicians, will lift a corner of the veil at more than 90 years old in a book of interviews with his friend Gilles Jacob I lived in my dreams.

Despite the cancellation of the 2020 edition of Cannes Film Festival, France.tv decided to get it into your living room.

From May 15, 21 films from the Directors' Fortnight will be broadcast on France.tv.

A first for the online platform, thus marking its support for the Cannes Film Festival and more generally for the cinema world, hard hit by the Covid-19 crisis.

It was in a press release that this operation was announced in early May, as part of initiatives to support culture and creation.

The selection (fourteen feature films, four short films and three documentaries) will be free for three months.

Among these films, you can find:

"The promise" of the Dardenne brothers, "Henri" by Yolande Moreau, or "Toto the hero" by Jaco van Dormael.

It is a real upheaval for France.tv which, before an agreement signed in February with several organizations in the cinema industry, did not have the right to broadcast films for free.

 Interviewed by RTL on the health crisis related to Covid-19, Dany Boon said he wanted to make a feature film on containment.

"We started to think 'Hey, why don't we write about it?' ", He said.

The story will thus focus on the whole building, "from the shops on the ground floor, to the maids' rooms," said Dany Boon, adding that he hoped to be able to shoot it "at the end of the year. "

A project he shares with his partner Laurence Arné.

Like these previous films, the 53-year-old director will be inspired by his experiences. Like nearly three billion people confined to the world, the daily life of Dany Boon has been somewhat turned upside down since the start of the epidemic. Hypochondriac, the Northerner says he finally lived through the confinement:

"What is funny is that I am hypochondriac but when I saw the anxiety of my children, I said to myself I have no right to be because I have to reassure them. Very surprisingly, I was less panicked, less freaked out, than I could have thought to be. " Yet he admits "that a deconfinement for a hypochondriac, it does not exist"

In parallel with this project, Dany Boon is working on another feature film, the filming of which, scheduled for August, finally had to be postponed "for insurance stories". Entitled Le Palmier, this film will focus on "a village in the white zone, which desperately seeks to have 5G installed in their municipality so that they can have access to the 21st century".

A film with Line Renaud, Benoît Poelvoorde and Bouli Lanners. The story was to take place in "Braine-La-Rivière".

The director of Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis also took advantage of this interview to discuss “the future of cinema”, at a time when the world of culture is in great difficulty due to the health crisis.

Coronavirus or not, cinema will continue to be celebrated.

Originally scheduled from May 12 to May 23, 2020, the Cannes Film Festival had planned a postponement to the end of June, but French authorities have since banned all rallies until mid-July. Its organizers have reported that it could take new "forms". The parallel sections of the Cannes Festival have canceled their 2020 edition.

At the initiative of the Tribeca festival, the 19th edition of which is currently taking place and partially online, the original We Are One: A global film festival will take place from May 29 to June 7 on YouTube.

To bring cinema to life, Tribeca announces the launch of the We Are One: Global Film Festival from May 29 to June 7. The festival which is a partner of the event has associated with more than twenty other organizations such as Cannes, the Venice Film Festival, the Berlinale. or Toronto. If the program remains secret, it seems that old and new films will be broadcast live on Youtube. In addition to the screenings, it will be possible to attend virtual round tables, but also musical events. The exact program is not yet known.

Jane Rosenthal, director of the Tribeca company, specifies that the festivals that can do it will still be held like the Venice festival, which the organizers hope to be able to hold from September 2 to 12 next.

Part of the proceeds from We Are One: A Global Film Festival will go to the World Health Organization (WHO) and to charities, the organizers announced. Internet users who go to YouTube.com/WeAreOne to view content can also donate to associations.

"We often talk about the role that films can play to inspire and bring people together across borders, to help appease the world," commented Tribeca festival director Jane Rosenthal, quoted in the statement .

"The whole world is in need of appeasement right now," she added.

The well-known Cinémathèque des cinéphiles located near Bercy embarked on Thursday April 9 in the race for the free distribution of cinematographic nuggets.

The online platform is called Henri (after Henri Langlois, founder of the Cinémathèque) and will offer each evening, at 8:30 p.m., a new film from the collection of films restored over the past twenty years and whose institution has broadcasting rights.

As much to tell you right away, there is something to enjoy, so take advantage because this exceptional device will unfortunately end with the lifting of containment.

The Open Culture platform has just established a list of 1150 films available free on the Internet. For the youngest, the Films-pour-enfants site is currently organizing a film festival to watch at home for all schoolchildren, from the middle section to the 6th grade.

Whether they come out on Netflix, Amazon Prime, OCS or even Canal +, we also announce the best series

Apple has announced that it will provide access to its Apple TV + streaming service starting Friday, April 10. This is enough to spend (a little more) confinement pleasantly. Even Apple gets started! After Canal +, OCS and Amazon Prime Video, it's Apple TV +'s turn to go into free mode. Not all content is free, but there is plenty to do. In total, you have four series, one film and three series dedicated to children.

We particularly recommend For All Mankind, an uchronia with as a starting point a world where the Russians were the first to set foot on the moon and beat the Americans in the space conquest, and Servant, a psychological thriller produced by M .Night Shyamalan who follows a grieving Philadelphia couple after an inexplicable and incredible tragedy that will allow a mysterious force to enter the lives of the newlyweds…

Another program not to be missed is the documentary film The Elephant Mother which follows the matriarchal Athena and her flock during their migration, with magical moments like tragic moments.

Canal + series

We really liked The New Pope, as did the first part of Paolo Sorrentino's series, The Young Pope. Canal + will release the fifth season of the Bureau des Légendes or the third season of Baron noir

Netflix series

Netflix started the year strong, notably by presenting the second season of Sex Education but also by launching the original (and rather successful) program Messiah, with Tomer Sisley.

OCS series

With some of our favorite series which made their return this year on OCS (yes, we are talking about the series of Larry David Curb Your Enthusiasm, among others) and some nice surprises like The Outsider (a series inspired by the work of Stephen King, with Ben Mendelsohn and Jason Bateman), the French chain always has many assets to entertain us.

Larry David is in great shape in this trailer for Curb Your Enthusiasm

Amazon Prime series

Amazon Prime hit hard by presenting an original series that we really liked: Hunters. In this crazy program produced by Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us), We find an Al Pacino still as charismatic as the head of an improbable team of Nazi hunters including Josh Radnor (Ted Mosby in How I Met Your Mother ) and especially Logan Lerman, who plays Jonah, the young man at the center of the plot

Good screenings to all !

We are going to be in confinement for the next few weeks: long days and evenings spent busy. So if you want to reread books from your personal library, why not ?

But here are some useful ideas and resources to find books and movies to discover for free and freely, thanks to an internet connection ...

An almost inexhaustible reservoir of works that have fallen into the public domain with countless great classics of literature and cinema. We download the works in digital format or go directly to reliable sites, such as free and free Ebooks, the French Digital Library or even Bibebook. Gallica, the heritage platform of the National Library of France, also offers a number of digital books.

For cinema , we count on YouTube, first of all, with a simple search. The Internet Archive platform hosts a large number of film classics, such as Metropolis by Fritz Lang or Le voyage Dans La Lune by Georges Méliès. Silent films will not pose a problem, but we must expect a large number of English-speaking films, and in particular American films, not necessarily subtitled.

We also think of libraries and media libraries that offer access to a video on demand offer, using different partners, such as Univers Ciné or Arte VoD. To access it, it is generally enough to be registered in one of the libraries of the network concerned and to have your reader identifiers: it is up to you to check if your establishment has this offer.

We also think of the cinematheque of Milan and Paris

To compensate for the closure of all cultural places in Italy, 500 films are available from the Cinematheque in Milan for free streaming. The catalog is constantly updated, with great classics such as Senza sole nè Luna by Luciano Ricci, Corociato 900, produced by the pioneer of Italian animation Libero Pensuti, but also the classics by Frederico Fellini, Emir Kusturika and many others. To take full advantage of it, simply register.

The Association of French Librarians (ABF) recommended that library establishments and networks make their digital services accessible to all users, even those who are not registered, but the decision rests with the communities ...

Also with your local library, it may be possible, provided you are registered, to borrow digital books.

The key word: let's grow in family !

The actress and film director Tonie Marshall passed away this Thursday, March 12, 2020, following a long illness. She was 68 years old.

Daughter of the actors Micheline Presle (born in 1922) and William Marshall (1917-1994), Tonie Marshall took her first steps in front of the camera in 1972, playing in "The most important event since man walked on the moon "by Jacques Demy.

She also plays supporting roles in the comedies "Rien va va plus" by Jean-Michel Ribes (1979) and "Les sous doués" by Claude Zidi (1980).

But it is behind the camera that Tonie The year 1990 marks for her her passage to the realization. After “Pentimento” - where Antoine De Caunes obtains his first role at the cinema - Tonie Marshall signs ten feature films, including

"Closer to paradise" with Catherine Deneuve and William Hurt and "France Boutique" with Karin Viard and François Cluzet. Vénus Beauté (Institut), released in 1999, was indeed one of his most significant films, where the beauty salon became the pretext for a work with feminist overtones - in the same genre Caramel (2007) by Lebanese Nadine Labaki.

The film follows the tribulations of three estheticians in search of love in a Parisian beauty institute.

In the casting, Nathalie Baye, Mathilde Seigner, Samuel Le Bihan, Bulle Ogier or Audrey Tautou, then unknown to the general public. This bittersweet comedy won four César awards in 2000: the César for best film, the César for best female hope for Audrey Tautou, the César for best original screenplay or adaptation, and the César for Best Director for Tonie Marshall who is at today the only woman to have won this award.

In 2017, she released “Number One”, her latest film, in which actress Emmanuelle Devos plays an engineer who is fighting to take the helm of a CAC 40 company. “Everything in the film is very realistic », Confided at the time of the exit the scenario writer, who had met many leaders for this feature film.

"I didn't want to show caricature men but on the other hand show how busy these spheres are." "Women find it difficult to plan," continued Tonie Marshall, who denounced "a frontal organization" and "a benevolent, paternalistic misogyny" to prevent women from reaching the highest positions.

In the world of cinema, Tonie Marshall assured, on the other hand, that she had not suffered from sexism. "I have never heard of a film being edited because it was made by a woman," she said.

And the director adds: "In order for women to be able to advance more and more, we have to think about diversity, parity, diversity, a kind of mixture that resembles the world in which we live".

This year, the 45th César ceremony is experiencing a lot of turbulence. This Friday, February 28, Florence Foresti will have the heavy task of succeeding Kad Merad, as master of ceremonies for the Cesar 2020 on the stage of the Salle Pleyel.

The twelve nominations of J'accuse by Franco-Polish director Roman Polanski, accused of rape, drew much criticism. Roman Polanski and the entire film crew, however, will not be present, including Jean Dujardin.

And for the first time since its creation in 1976, the ceremony will face another unprecedented situation. For the first time in the history of the Caesars, no honorary prize will be awarded to a personality for his entire career.

However, "the Caesarized Honor" Brad Pitt had accepted this proposal from the Academy before finally retracting. The American actor, freshly Oscar winner for his role in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, would have finally retracted.

On February 2, 2020, Brad Pritt also failed at the Bafta ceremony, the equivalent of the Caesars in the United Kingdom. Alain Terzian, ex-president of the Academy of cinema arts and techniques, would have tried his luck with other American comedians, in vain.

Last year, it was a monument of Hollywood cinema, the actor, director and producer Robert Redford, who went on stage to receive, from the hands of Kristin Scott Thomas (whom he had directed The Man Who Whispered at horses' ears), the precious trophy.

The Polanski affair received a certain echo across the Atlantic, where the director of Rosemary's Baby has been persona non grata since his escape in 1978 to escape his trial for rape against a minor.

And the recent interview of Adèle Haenel at the New York Times, in which the actress of Portrait of the girl on fire, declares that "to distinguish Polanski, it is to spit in the face of all the victims", is undoubtedly not gone unnoticed.

The 45th edition of the César will undoubtedly remain in the annals as one of the most eventful.

"I pity Florence Foresti, who has to manage the Polanski case, the defections and the tensions, and probably rewrite her texts constantly," said actor Lambert Wilson in the columns of Paris Match.

Kate White for DayNewsWorld



The direction of the Cesars announced Thursday evening his "collective resignation", fifteen days before the next annual ceremony, against a background of crisis, between denunciation of the opacity of the management of the academy and the Polanski controversy.

Much has been written about this Cesar ceremony. A few days before the event, which will take place on February 28, the management of the César Academy announces its unanimous resignation.

This collective resignation will make it possible to proceed to the complete renewal of the direction ”, indicates the Academy chaired since 2003 by the producer Alain Terzian.

In a press release, the institution says it wants to "honor those who made the cinema in 2019, to regain serenity and make the cinema festival a celebration."

She specifies that the General Assembly will meet after the ceremony to elect a new directorate, under the aegis of the CNC. The aim of this upheaval: "to implement the announced modernization measures"

This shock announcement comes after a column published Monday evening in "Le Monde", where some 400 personalities including Omar Sy, Bertrand Tavernier, Michel Hazanavicius, Jacques Audiard, Céline Sciamma, Marina Foïs or Agnès Jaoui have called for a "thorough reform" of the Academy of Caesar.

Among their grievances, "dysfunctions", "opacity of the accounts" or statutes which "have not evolved for a very long time" and are still based on "cooptation".

If Polanski received a Caesar ...

It must be said that the Academy is at the heart of several controversies, including the nomination in 12 categories of Roman Polanski. The filmmaker is charged with rape and sexual assault and was even convicted in 1977.

Several feminist associations denounce the appointment of the filmmaker and accuse the Academy of protecting the man, however convicted. Associations like Dare feminism! call for a gathering the evening of the ceremony in front of the Salle Pleyel in Paris.

Another affair also shakes up the ceremony. On the occasion of the traditional dinner of revelations, which brings together the nominees of female and male hopefuls, two godmothers are refused by the Academy. Virginie Despente and Claire Denis are considered illegitimate and not enough media to play this role.

Finally, a forum relaunches the debate on the Academy and its practices deemed "elitist and closed" by cinema professionals. Published in Le Monde, the text calls for an in-depth reform and an overhaul of the modes of governance. They denounce the mode of operation of the Academy and the opacity of the management.

On Twitter, the Minister of Culture, Franck Riester, announced that he had asked the CNC to support the Academy "in drafting the association's new statutes, in consultation with the professionals concerned and in compliance with these principles. "He adds" This renewed governance must make it possible to represent French cinema in all its aesthetics and diversity ".

The ceremony, which will be held in Salle Pleyel on February 28, will reward French films released in 2019. Besides J'accuse by Roman Polanski, La Belle Époque by Nicolas Bedos and Les Misérables by Ladj Ly are in the running for the prize for the best movie.

Florence Foresti will officiate as mistress of ceremony.

Still mourning the loss a few days earlier of two of its sacred monsters, Kirk Douglas and Robert Conrad, the world of cinema went to Los Angeles and the Dolby Theater, Sunday February 9, 2020, on the occasion of the 92nd Academy Awards.

The ceremony was inaugurated by a Janelle Monae surrounded by dancing Jokers and a song from the film An extraordinary friend.

The singer started while swinging !

"He has lived a wonderfully long life and while his family is saddened by his passing, he will forever live in their hearts," said Jeff Ballard, family spokesperson for Conrad, to People magazine.

After having long practiced the profession of dairy, Robert Conrad attempted a career as a singer and released several records among which I want you pretty baby.

But it was as an actor that he became known to the general public in 1959. That year, he joined the cast of the series Intrigues in Hawaii, where he played for four years the role of Tom Lopaka.

Cult TV series

He obviously played James West, the American secret service agent, (role then taken up by Will Smith in the film "Wild Wild West" in 1999) in the legendary series

"The Mysteries of the West", from 1965 to 1969. James West and his partner Artemus Gordon, master of disguise, in true western James Bond, fought against the bad guys in a nineteenth century with steampunk accents.

Robert Conrad performed almost all of his stunts there, which led him to shoot himself from an episode of the Mysteries of the West when he fell over four meters onto a cement floor.

This series served as the basis for Wild Wild West (1999), one of the most expensive films ever made, in which Will Smith plays the role of James T. Dear ones ever made, in which Will Smith plays the role of James T West.

I He also made himself famous in 1976 with the series Les Têtes britées (Baa Baa Black Sheep, then Black Sheep Squadron, in original version) in which he played Major Greg "pappy" Boyington - hero of the Pacific War who really existed - leading a squad of tough, rebellious American pilots during the war against Japan.

"Murders Live" (1982) and "The Toy Race" (1996). It was dubbed in French by actor Jacques Thébault, who also lent his beautiful deep voice to Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, George Chakiris and many American actors.

"In showbiz there are three cycles, told the actor to People magazine in an interview in 1998. They don't know you, after they love you and after you've been there so long that they hate you . Now I start all over again ”.

Robert Conrad's last appearance in a film dates back to 2002. In 2003, a serious car accident - while driving while intoxicated - left him partially paralyzed. He launched his weekly radio show in 2007 on CRN.

The American actor Kirk Douglas died, Wednesday February 5, 2020, at the age of 103 years, announced his son Michael Douglas, on Facebook. “It is with great sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today at the age of 103 years. For the world, he was a legend, an actor in the golden age of cinema, (...) but for me and my brothers, Joel and Peter, he was simply a father, ”writes the actor. "Kirk has had a good life and he leaves behind films for generations to come, and the memory of a recognized philanthropist who worked for the public good and for world peace," continues Michael Douglas.

"Born in misery, you cannot go any lower"

His real name Issur Danielovitch Demsky, Kirk Douglas was born on December 9, 1916 in Amsterdam, a small town in the state of New York. Despite his miserable childhood, or perhaps because of it, this son of a Jewish ragpicker who fled Russia had eyes only for the cinema.

Kirk Douglas described himself as "an angry man."

Anger was the engine of my life, an immense anger against injustice. ” Anger against his childhood. A miserable childhood like David Copperfield, where he also suffered from anti-Semitism and the indifference of an alcoholic and illiterate father.

It was when he landed in New York for an acting career that he took Kirk Douglas as his stage name, before officially and legally adopting it just before enlisting in the navy in 1941. enlisted in the Navy during the Second World War, and made the campaign of the Pacific aboard a submarine hunter.

Birth of the Hollywood legend

Demobilized, he chained small roles before experiencing success in 1949 with Le Champion, where he camped a character boxer. Hollywood then opened its doors to him and he chained the films, a hundred in total.

The career of the actor with the azure gaze and the famous dimple in the chin takes off: adventure films (Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, 1954), peplum (Spartacus, 1960), war films (The Paths of Glory, 1958, “, 1966), westerns (La Captive aux vies clair, 1952, Settlement of accounts at OK Corral, 1957)…

Kirk Douglas meets Vincente Minnelli, his election director. In 1952, they filmed Les Ensorcelés together, a merciless and paroxysmal representation of the black magic of cinema, which corrupts and exalts. In 1956, it was The Passionate Life of Vincent Van Gogh, "the only role in which I almost lost myself," later admitted the actor. .Kirk Douglas did not leave the character between takes, and will describe the experience as frightening, close to madness, going so far as to touch his ear to verify that it was still there. Minnelli and Douglas meet again for a fortnight elsewhere, in 1962.

Douglas may not sacrifice the techniques of the Actors Studio that Marlon Brando and James Dean imposed on Hollywood, he commits himself each time in his roles, even if it means putting himself in psychological or physical danger. He finished filming The Captive Eyes Clear (1952), Howard Hawks' bucolic western, with pneumonia. And it is he who dances on the oars of a moving longship in The Vikings.

This great friend of Burt Lancaster tours with the greatest directors, from Kubrick to Mankiewicz via Huston, Minelli, Hawks, Preminger and Kazan.

"I have long been the most hated actor in Hollywood."

He became a producer and made several films himself with the creation of his production company, Bryna, thus named in honor of his mother. This independence allows him to start work on films that are far from Hollywood "entertainment". Even The Vikings, a film with a great spectacle, in which it has for partner Tony Curtis, is distinguished by the efforts of the scriptwriters and the decorators to reach a semblance of historical truth. Kirk Douglas reserved for himself the role of the barbarian, a man who his monstrous appetites lead to his loss. In the process, he hired the young Stanley Kubrick to direct The Paths of Glory, an anti-militarist drama set in 1917.

A committed actor, who has always been close to the Democrats, he did not hesitate, in the midst of the McCarthyist witch hunt in the 1950s, to hire a screenwriter who was on the black list of people not to be hired because of their supposed communist sympathies. We call him "the pain". "Because of my outspokenness, I have long been the most hated actor in Hollywood."

An honorary Oscar rewarding his entire career.

Despite the glory, successes and three nominations in the 1950s, Kirk Douglas never received an Oscar during his career, much to his regret. He also confesses another great regret at the cinema: not having landed the role of Flight over a cuckoo's nest, the masterpiece of Milos Forman from 1975. “It's a tragedy for me. Nicholson got it and he got an Oscar. And I don't have one… ”. The Hollywood legend had to wait until 1996 to win an honorary Oscar for his entire career.

A successful author .

Kirk Douglas has become a successful author. He published Le Fils du chiffonnier in 1988. A best-seller in the United States, the book was translated worldwide. Douglas recounts his miserable childhood, his loves, his artistic and political struggles.

Kirk Douglas leaves behind a cinema dynasty. Two actor sons, including Michael, born of a first marriage and now at least as famous as his father, two other producer sons, an actress daughter-in-law, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and a grandson, Cameron, also an actor.

With his steel look and his square jaw, Kirk Douglas has crossed the century and genres in Hollywood. The last great sacred monster from the golden age of American cinema, it was awarded the Legion of Honor in France in 1990.

"Kirk kept his charisma as a movie star until the end of his wonderful life," wrote Steven Spielberg to the specialist magazine Hollywood Reporter, adding that he would miss his "handwritten notes, letters and fatherly advice".

The Académie des César unveiled all of the nominations on Wednesday January 29 in Paris. Roman Polanski's film J'accuse leads the nominations for the César 2020, with 12 nominations.

He was notably named in the major categories "best director" and "best film", when his release had been disrupted by a new accusation of rape against the director.

The Cesars must not "have moral positions", said the president of the Academy, Alain Terzian, about Roman Polanski to defuse any controversy, thus referring to the accusations of rape against the director brought by the French photographer Valentine Monnier.

But the heavy responsibility of making the difference between man and his work or not has not finished tapping everyone.

Les Misérables by Ladj Ly and La Belle Epoque by Nicolas Bedos each record 11 nominations: they are in the running, among others, for the "best film".

The film Portrait of the young girl on fire, by Céline Sciamma, records 10 nominations.

Co-written by three screenwriters, Ladj Ly, Giordanno Gederlini and Alexis Manenti (also performer), Les Misérables (11 nominations) is largely inspired by the director's youth lived in Montfermeil (Seine-Saint-Denis), in the Paris suburbs in a thriller between the inhabitants of a city and the police.

In La Belle Epoque, a funny, sensitive and poetic film, Nicolas Bedos paints a portrait of Victor (Daniel Auteuil) whose son (Guillaume Canet) offers him the opportunity to relive his meeting in 1973 with his future wife (Dora Tillier) in as part of a playful reconstruction.

Portrait of the girl on fire treats, with the elegance of the staging and the interpretation of Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haenel, of artistic creation, of the story of an 18th century painter brought to make the portrait of a woman with whom she falls in love.

Rarely do so many films end up with a dozen nominations each, in the finalized selection of Cesars.

The nominees for the César Award for Best Director correspond perfectly to this selection: Nicolas Bedos, François Ozon, Roman Polanski, Ladj Ly, Céline Sciamma, Arnaud Desplechin, Eric Tolédano and Olivier Nakache.

In the running for the statuette of the best actress, Anaïs Demoustier will face Chiara Mastroianni, Eva Green, Adèle Haenel, Noémie Merlant, Doria Tillier and Karin Viard. For men, it was Daniel Auteuil, Damien Bonnard, Vincent Cassel, Jean Dujardin, Reda Kateb, Melvil Poupaud or Roschdy Zem who won the César for best actor.

The 45th ceremony, chaired by Sandrine Kiberlain, will take place on February 28 at the Salle Pleyel.

James Cameron a publié plusieurs concepts art sur Twitter de la suite des aventures de Jake Sully et Neytiri.

On y découvre les nouveaux univers qui serviront de toile de fond à ce nouveau film qui doit sortir en décembre 2021.

La suite des aventures de Jake Sully et Neytiri explorera notamment une facette inédite de la lune de Pandora, dans le monde aquatique, où se déroule l'intrigue du premier film.

James Cameron a développé au cours de ces dernières années de nouvelles caméras capables de filmer sous l'eau.

Une photo dévoilée en octobre dernier montrait le réalisateur oscarisé armé d'une lourde caméra 3D en train de filmer un décor maritime en feu.

« Feu, eau et 3D - voici quelques-unes des choses que je préfère au monde », avait-il indiqué en faisant référence à ses classiques Terminator 2, The Abyss et surtout Titanic.

Le film devrait sortir fin 2021, et deux autres films devraient ensuite sortir entre 2023 et 2027.

James Cameron, réalisateur et chef d'orchestre d'Avatar, a prévu quatre suites.

Selon Sigourney Weaver, elles « forment une seule histoire », mais pourront être visionnées indépendamment les unes des autres. Elles devraient sortir entre 2023 et 2027.

Les mondes du cinéma et de la télévision se sont retrouvés dans la nuit du dimanche 5 au lundi 6 janvier 2020 pour la première grande cérémonie de récompenses de l'année.

Les fêtes de fin d'année à peine terminées, glamour et paillettes ont repris leurs droits à Hollywood.

Star Wars . This monster of the Seventh Art, this science fiction film that has become one of the biggest cultural phenomena the world has ever known, offers its audience on Wednesday December 18, 2019 the resolution of a plot initiated in 1977.

The first trilogy, broadcast from the late 1970s to the early 1980s, was instantly raised to the rank of a cult work by spectators, charmed by the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa and Han Solo.

Then, from 1999 to 2005, the distant world of George Lucas made his big come back to the cinema with a series of prequels worn by an unprecedented cast.

Finally, following the acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney in 2012 (for the modest sum of $ 4 billion), the production of a third trilogy, this time of sequels, started in 2015 with the release of Force Awakens.

The three trilogies tell the story of the hero Luke Skywalker's origins, his initiation into "Force", and then his victory over the "dark side of the Force."

The "Star Wars" saga ends with "Episode IX: The Ascension of Skywalker".

Emperor Palpatine, head of the Sith, followers of the "dark side of the Force," is back.

He wants to grab Rey, initiated by Luke Skywalker, to put her on the throne of The Last Order which succeeds The Empire and the First Order.

His disciple, Kylo Rein, son of Princess Leia and Han Solo, will do everything to convince Rey to join him in order to reign over the Last Order. Meanwhile, the Rebel Alliance is joining forces to defeat Palpatine.

The director gives Rey and Kylo all the depth of their character who have a perfectly mastered visual leg and a perfect artistic and choreographic direction.

Each second on the screen where they appear alone or together is important and visually stunning: they are the two who pull their respective companions towards the outcome.

A realization to the height, rewarded by a good performance of the different protagonists.

Leia signs her last appearance on the screen here, since the death of her interpreter, Carrie Fisher, in 2016, even if we feel that the character was intended for a more important role in this section.

As for the main protagonists, Rey and Kylo Ren, they are particularly credible in their respective roles.

What's more, JJ Abrams focused on non-stop action. Star Wars: the rise of Skywalker is indeed full of spectacular sequences, including a breathtaking finale.

Star Wars: The Ascension of Skywalker is in line with the original trilogy, and borrows here and there many elements from the "Return of the Jedi", in particular, much more than the prelogy.

High-end entertainment for young and old, and above all, the end of a saga that has marked 42 years of cinematographic history.

Leading crime writer, Harlan Thrombey is found dead in his magnificent property after celebrating his 85th birthday.

Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is hired by an anonymous sponsor to solve the case.

In front of him and all suspects, the family of the deceased who is torn apart and his staff who remain devoted to him.

Police leans for suicide.

Unless it is a murder perpetrated by a member of his family present at the time of the facts.

And to interpret all this small world, a flaming cast Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette and Christopher Plummer.

A knives is a "Whodunit? In other words, an enigma film in which the viewer has the same clues as the protagonists of the action.

Rian Johnson thus dramatically revives a genre, the riddle film with unexpected twists and his hero, an investigator with a sharp mind but the killer takes seriously, with his side a little clown.

In the role of this sleuthing end who will have to determine "who did it", a funny and inspired Daniel Craig, who plays Benoit Blanc, whom Rian Johnson defines as an American Hercule Poirot.

Intricate family intrigues at Agatha Christie burst into the open in front of a sneaky detective, each family member taking turns for the ideal culprit or a potential victim .

In this well-knotted bag of knots, actors, directors and amateur fans of the genre have fun.

Either a playful Cluedo where lies disintegrate to finally break the truth.

"It all starts with Agatha Christie I grew up with her, I continue to read her. I wanted to make an intrigue riddles, "says Rian Johnson who pushes the analysis of his film.

"But I agree with Hitchcock. One of the problems with the detective movie is that it's just a big climb to the big final surprise. We play with the spectator who tries to find the culprit. It is not easy to keep him in suspense for two hours. "He continues.

This is why the second half of the feature film of more than two hours then plunges into the land of Hitchcock mystery, endowed with touching characters in their helplessness in front of the tragedy that crushes them and ginned with action scenes skilfully dosed.

"I tried to integrate the mechanics of a Hitchcockian thriller inside a Whodunit to activate the machine of suspense and empathy"

A little gem of flamboyant casting cinema !

For them years after the beginning of the #MeToo movement, actress Adèle Haenel broke the taboo of sexual violence in the film world.

"Silence is the best way to maintain an order related to oppression," she said emotionally on November 4, before the cameras of Mediapart.

The day before, the French media published an investigation in which the actress claimed to have been victim of touching and sexual harassment by the director Christophe Ruggia, while she was 12 to 15 years old. The filmmaker refutes "categorically having harassed him or any kind of touching on this girl then minor".

"I'm shocked that he's mad," responded Adele Haenel in the live broadcast by Mediapart on Monday. "I am even more shocked by the fact that he says he 'discovered' me [as an actress] because, in fact, he mostly destroyed me. ".

The two-time Caesarized actress describes "a system of isolation" set up by the filmmaker, who gave him his first film role in The Devils, released in 2002.

Adèle Haenel also explains why she decided to break the silence fifteen years after the fact. Now more renowned than the man she accuses and aware that she is "not in the same precariousness as most people who happen," the actress considers to have a "responsibility" in the wake of #MeToo movement related to the Weinstein case: "He can not redo a movie with teens, I can not let him do that. ". It also calls for collective responsibility, this need to become aware of the weight of patriarchy, the culture of rape because "monsters do not exist. It's our society. It's us, our friends, our fathers. "

She preferred to confide in a media outlet rather than make a complaint, as if to recall that "there is a systemic violence against women in the justice system ... One in ten rapes result in a conviction . What does the other nine, all these lives mean? ". A question that continues to tease the victims and to which society has the duty to respond.

On 4 November the mis en cause was excluded from the Society of Film Directors, which he co-chaired several times (in 2006, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2018).

Asking for a right of reply to Mediapart, Christophe Ruggia finally spoke on the facts that are blamed on him . The director denounces the "media pillories" of which he would be the victim and returns, in a long text, on the relationship "personal and professional strong" that he established with the young actress. "I never had to her, I repeat, the physical acts and the sexual harassment behavior of which she accuses me, but I made the mistake of playing the pygmalions with the misunderstandings and the hindrances that such a posture arouses. The director's influence on the actress he had directed and with whom he dreamed of shooting again, "he says.

"At the time, I did not see that my adulation and hopes that I put in it could have appeared to him, considering its young age, as painful at times. If so, and if she can, I ask her to forgive me. "

In 2017, after the Weinstein affair, the association pledged to work against "the abuse of power, the centralization of power in the hands of the same, sexual drifts based on the emotional part at work in the process of making films»...

since all this time they are married, obviously she collects young lovers!

At the end of a tense confrontation, she moved to a hotel room with a bird's eye view of the apartment where she left Richard alone with his despair.

Suddenly someone knocks on the door:

it's her husband Richard, but young Richard, at 25, the age he had when she met him (it's Vincent Lacoste who embodies him with charm and humor). !

The idyll then reborn between the two, while in the apartment across the street, the Richard de Biolay finally gives heart to heart with Marta (Camille Cottin), his former piano teacher.

The director Christophe Honoré enjoys the wear of the couple and adultery composing a conceptual film where two versions of the husband are embodied together, one young, the other aged.

The irruption of this lover and this lover of another era creates incredible chaos and breathes a beautiful energy to the film.

Crossing these different scenes of life and the comicalness of certain situations emerges in Room 212 (the number of the article of the civil code stipulating "the spouses owe each other respect, fidelity, help, assistance" !!) a feeling of good mood and "unbearable ? lightness ".

Release: October 9, 2019 (France)

Director: Christophe Honoré

Scenario: Christophe Honoré

Nominations: Prix Un certain regard, Prize of the staging - A certain look, Jury Prize - A certain look

Awards: Un Certain Regard Best Performance.

A must see !!

Luc Besson brise enfin le silence après dix-huit mois d'absence et des accusations de viols portées par la jeune comédienne Sand Van Roy.

Il se confie en effet dans un entretien accordé à BFMTV qui sera diffusé dans son intégralité le 8 octobre 2019.

Le cinéaste de 60 ans dément vigoureusement les accusations de viols affirmant que cette affaire est « un mensonge, de A à Z ». Son rapport envers les femmes n'a été marquée par de la brutalité, affirme-t-il encore.

« Je n'ai pas violé cette femme. Je n'ai jamais violé une femme de ma vie.

Je n'ai jamais levé la main sur une femme. Je n'ai jamais menacé une femme. Je n'ai jamais contraint physiquement ou moralement une femme à quoi que ce soit. Je n'ai jamais drogué une femme comme j'ai pu le lire », se défend-il.

Le réalisateur de Nikita reconnaît néanmoins avoir eu une relation avec Sand Van Roy, durant deux ans.

Et ce n'était pas la première fois qu'il trompait sa femme Virginie en vingt ans de mariage.

« J'ai des responsabilités. J'ai commis des erreurs et j'ai fait des fautes et j'ai aussi menti », confesse-t-il. C'est la première fois qu'il avoue cette relation extraconjugale avec l'actrice Sand Van Roy qui joue dans « Taxi 5 », Valérian et la Cité des mille planètes.

« J’ai trahi ma femme et mes enfants. Ça ne m’est pas arrivé qu’une seule fois, ça m’est arrivé plusieurs fois en vingt ans de mariage... » , poursuit le réalisateur marié depuis 2004 à Virginie Besson-Silla, productrice au sein de la société Europacorp avec qui il a eu enfants.

Dans cette interview réalisée avant la réouverture de l'enquête par un juge d'instruction , Luc Besson présente donc sa défense.

L'actrice belgo-néerlandaise de 28 ans Sand Van Roy avait porté plainte pour viol le 18 mai 2018 contre l’influent producteur au lendemain d’un rendez-vous avec lui dans un palace parisien.

Deux mois plus tard, elle avait dénoncé d’autres viols et agressions sexuelles commises, selon elle, au cours de deux années d’une « relation d’emprise professionnelle » avec le producteur. Les plaintes initiales avaient été classées sans suite le 25 février dernier par le parquet de Paris, qui estimait n'avoir pas pu « caractériser l'infraction dénoncée dans tous ses éléments constitutifs ».

La comédienne a alors déposé une nouvelle plainte, avec constitution de partie civile si bien qu'une information judiciaire pour « viols » a été ouverte mercredi 2 octobre. Le 4 octobre 2019, l'avocat de Sand Van Roy a annoncé la reprise des investigations dans l'affaire des accusations de viols à l'encontre de Luc Besson.

L'affaire sera jugée au tribunal.

Le maire de Lyon, Paul Théraneau (Fabrice Luchini), vit mal, très mal sa fonction de vieux routard de la politique qui n'a plus rien à proposer, qui n’a plus une seule idée, désabusé qu'il est de tout.

Après trente ans de vie politique, il se sent complètement vide, sans plus aucune ambition que celle de conquérir la fonction suprême.

Colloques interminables, paperasserie, fonctionnement plus compliqué que le code des impôts, communicants traquant sa parole à tous les coins de porte: on comprend que l'édile soit vidé.

On comprend aussi qu'exercer le pouvoir et mettre en pratique une politique, devienne de plus en plus compliqué au milieu d'un panier de crabes de béni-oui oui qui passent leur temps à encenser le Maire, à ne pas oser le contredire.

Alors pourquoi ne pas lui adjoindre une jeune femme brillante  pour le sortir de sa torpeur ?

C'est ce que décide la cheffe de cabinet du maire.

Et voilà une jeune normalienne du nom d' Alice Heimann (Anaïs Demoustier) qui débarque à la mairie sans en connaître les codes.

A la manière de Arthur Vlaminck (Raphaël Personaz) dans Quai d’Orsay de Bertrand Tavernier, Alice déboule dans la Mairie comme un éléphant dans un jeu de quilles, croyant que sa seule bonne volonté va faire bouger les lignes.

Le maire Paul Théraneau, très à l’écoute de la brillante philosophe, va boire ses paroles, s’en inspirer, s’en délecter.

Un dialogue se noue alors, qui rapproche Alice et le maire. Tout l’intérêt du duo improbable, c’est l’opportunité pour le spectateur de plonger dans les méandres d’une grande collectivité territoriale grâce à son regard non initié.

Mais en matière de politique, une idée aussi grande soit elle, doit être confrontée à la réalité.

Or L'idéologie prend le pas sur la réalité. Comme les tactiques politiciennes, les élections et les réélections étant devenues une fin en soi. Mais où se situe alors dans tout cela la «politique» soit la gestion de la cité ?

De très bons acteurs, des dialogues ciselés même si parfois le côté didactique et un peu trop sérieux l'emporte  sur l'humour.

"Forbes" magazine has just revealed the ranking of the best paid actors.

The annual rankings of Hollywood's highest-paid actors reserve a few surprises this year:

Indian actor Akshay Kumar, Bollywood star, is in fourth place.

He is followed by Taiwanese actor Jackie Chan. ("The Knight of Shadows: Between Yin and Yang")

And it is former American football player and wrestler Dwayne Johnson, best known by moviegoers as The Rock, who comes in first place.

A place he had already held in 2016. This year, The Rock was on the big screen in Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw , then will be in Jumanji: The Next Level . I

The actors of the movie "Avengers: Endgame", global success, have risen to the top spots.

According to the Forbes ranking of the best paid male actors released Wednesday, Chris Hemsworth, aka Thor, occupies the second position with $ 76.4 million.

It is followed by Robert Downey Jr. ( Iron Man ) and his 66 million. Chris Evans (Captain America) and Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) are respectively 8th and 9th.

Two actors create the surprise:

And George Clooney was therefore dethroned from first place.

It must be said that the husband of Amal Clooney has been granted a little respite in a career without fault.

He was content this time with a role in the mini-series released last May on Hulu, "Catch-22".

Adulé en Europe, blacklisté aux Etats-Unis, Woody Allen ne laisse pas indifférent.

Son dernier film, « Un jour de pluie à New York », tourné en 2017 avec Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning et Selena Gomez a fait l'ouverture du festival de Deauville.

Mais il a été annulée par Amazon lorsque la fille adoptive de Woody Allen a renouvelé en 2018, en pleine vague #MeToo, des accusations d'agressions sexuelles à l'encontre du cinéaste.

La jeune femme est soutenue par sa mère adoptive l'actrice Mia Farrow et son frère Ronan, journaliste lauréat du Pulitzer pour son enquête sur le producteur Harvey Weinstein.

Plusieurs stars du film, dont Timothee Chalamet et Selena Gomez, ont par la suite exprimé leur regret d’avoir travaillé sur ce long-métrage, et ont donné leur cachet à des ONG luttant contre les abus sexuel à la fondation Time's up entre autres.

Pourtant Woody Allen a toujours catégoriquement nié les accusations de Dylan Farrow, qui affirme qu'il a abusé d'elle en 1992 quand elle avait sept ans.

Pourtant deux enquêtes distinctes de plusieurs mois ont montré l'inexistence de preuves si bien qu'à deux reprises les poursuites à l'encontre du cinéaste ont été abandonnées.

Et l'acteur de 83 ans d'insister dans l' interview sur France 5 :

« Avec toutes les preuves à l'appui, avec toutes les enquêtes qui ont été menées, tout m'a disculpé, j'ai été acquitté. […] J'espère qu'un jour ils se rendront compte qu'ils ont commis une triste erreur […] L'erreur est humaine, ce n'est pas tragique. »

Et au cinéaste, interrogé sur le mouvement # MeToo, d'insister qu'il avait un « parcours irréprochable ».

« Ça fait 50 ans que je fais du cinéma, j'ai travaillé avec des centaines d'actrices.

Pas une n'a émis le début d'un soupçon sur un comportement contestable. […] J'ai donné du travail à des dizaines de femmes dans mon organisation, devant et derrière la caméra : on leur a toujours payé exactement la même chose qu'à leurs homologues masculins. »

Woody Allen a reçu récemment deux soutiens de poids, en la personne de Catherine Deneuve et de Scarlett Johansson . « Il maintient qu'il est innocent et je le crois », a déclaré l'actrice américaine (la Black Widow dans la série des Avengers).

Le festival de Venise a décerné, samedi 7 septembre 2019, son Lion d'or à Joker, de l'Américain Todd Phillips.

« Merci de m'avoir fait confiance avec ton talent fou », a déclaré le réalisateur Todd Phillips, surtout connu jusqu'ici pour ses comédies, dont la trilogie à succès Very bad trip, à l'adresse de son acteur Joaquin Phoenix.

Porté par un Joaquin Phoenix au sommet de son art, ce récit initiatique sur le pire ennemi de Batman a été unanimement salué par la presse.

« Qu'une industrie comme celle des Etats-Unis prenne le risque de réaliser 'Joker' est courageux.

C'est une réflexion sur les héros et les anti-héros », a déclaré de son côté la présidente du jury Lucrecia Martel.

Le Grand Prix du jury, deuxième récompense la plus importante de la Mostra, est revenu au « J'accuse » de Roman Polanski.

Malgré la polémique, le nouveau long-métrage du réalisateur de Rosemary’s Baby a remporté plus tôt dans la journée le prix Fipresci (Fédération internationale de la presse cinématographique) de la critique internationale à Venise pour son «point de vue inhabituel» sur l’Affaire Dreyfus.

Le film raconte l'affaire Dreyfus, scandale antisémite de la fin du XIXe siècle en France, du point de vue du lieutenant-colonel Georges Picquart, qui avait réhabilité le capitaine injustement condamné pour des faits d'espionnage fabriqués de toutes pièces.

C’est son interprète et épouse, Emmanuelle Seigner qui est venue chercher son prix.

Des discours politiques

La Coupe Volpi de la meilleure interprète féminine a été décernée à Ariane Ascaride pour son rôle dans Gloria Mundi de Robert Guédiguian.

L'actrice française d'origine italienne a dédié son prix aux migrants morts en mer et à « ceux qui vivent pour l'éternité au fond de la Méditerranée ».

Chez les hommes, c'est l'acteur italien Luca Marinelli qui a le prix pour son rôle dans Martin Eden, adaptation du roman de Jack London, de Pietro Marcello. Luca Marinelli a dédié, quant à lui, son prix aux marins qui aujourd’hui naviguent en Méditerranée pour recueillir les migrants.

Le prix de la mise en scène est allé au Suédois Roy Andersson pour About Endlessness (au sujet de l’infinitude). Le prix du scénario a été décroché par le Hongkongais Yonfan avec No.7 Cherry Lane.

Ce long-métrage relate les émeutes entre pro-communistes et le gouvernement dans l’ancienne colonie britannique en 1967. En recevant son prix, Yonfan a dit espérer que la situation dans l'ex-colonie britannique « revienne à la normale »  pour que les habitants puissent « se sentir libres à nouveau ».

Les principaux prix de la 76e édition de la Mostra de Venise :

Lion d’Or du meilleur film : Joker de l’Américain Todd Phillips

Lion d’Argent Grand Prix du jury : J’accuse du Franco-Polonais Roman Polanski

Lion d’Argent de la meilleure mise en scène : Roy Andersson (Suède) pour About Endlessness

Prix du meilleur scénario : N° 7 Cherry Lane du Hongkongais Yonfan

Prix spécial du jury : La Mafia Non e Piu Quella Di Una Volta (La Mafia n’est plus ce qu’elle était) de l’Italien Franco Maresco

Brad Pitt signs a remarkable return to the front of the stage. Quentin Tarantino's new film, Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood, still draws so much in the dark.

And in Ad Astra by director James Gray, he plays astronaut Roy McBride, the main character who goes into space to solve a mystery and find his father.

Professional side he continues to meet the success in the cinema.

But the time has come for the star of By the Sea alongside Angelina Jolie to draw some sort of record of her Hollywood life.

His descent into hell

And during an interview in the New York Times to confide that he knows the ups and downs in his love life and that his divorce from Angelina Jolie has really shaken him "The thing is, we're wearing all in us pain, sorrow and mourning, he says.

We spend most of the time hiding it, but it's there, it's always there in us. "He explained

And then he also addresses, without taboos, his penchant for alcohol that led him to attend Alcoholics Anonymous. He found comfort.

"There were all these men sitting in a circle, who were open and honest in a way I had never seen before.

It was a safe space where no one thought ... in fact, it was very liberating to reveal this shadow, "says the 55-year-old actor who tries to stave off his demons. Had not his wife accused her of being a danger to her children?

Today it is therefore necessary to restore order in his life. And the 55-year-old actor announcing that he would gradually stop appearing in movies. Besides, it was to be expected: Bratt Pitt, for some years, plays a little less.

New passions

"There will be fewer and fewer projects, and they will be more spaced from each other in time, because there are other things I want to do now," assumed the icon in the interview. "When you feel like you've gone around, it's time to go around something else." "When you feel like you've gone around, it's time to go around something else."

He does not sign his retreat, no, he has several strings to his bow.

But lucid that cinema now belongs to the actors of twenty years his junior.

"[My on-screen appearances] are going to be increasingly rare, because I have other things to do now. When you feel that you master something, it means that it is time to go to another adventure, "says Oscar winner he prefers to rely on his talents as a producer.

And he is passionate for a few years for sculpture and has his own production box. He helped finance three Oscar-winning films: Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave, Barry Jenkins' Moonlight, and Martin Scorsese's The Infiltrates.

A mini-series for Once up the time ... in Hollywood

And according to Brad Pitt, Quentin Tarantino would book a surprise to his fans: a mini-series of his latest film. The Eight Bastards have already been the subject of a mini-series of four episodes to which he had added twenty minutes of cut scenes. And why not with Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood?

"Yeah, he talked about it. It's a pretty exciting idea (...) I see series as a way to spend more time with characters and story, and to explore angles that you can not always explore in a movie. Many pieces of these films end up on the editing table because it does not fit (...) -as the sect Manson- It's practically the best of both worlds: the cinema experience exists, but we can put more content in the serial format, "says the actor.

And do not forget Ad Astra, who received a great critical reception for his presentation at the Venice Film Festival, and will be released in cinemas on September 18, 2019.

Zahia seems back from everything.

She does not hesitate to assert from her 27 years that "Life has no meaning. In a low voice.

For Zahia life has not spared her.

Her childhood, she spent up to 10 years in Algeria, his homeland torn by a decade of civil war, alongside his mother and two brothers.

Then after the divorce of her parents, she knows France and the suburbs of Paris with a lot of misery.

To get by, nothing is easier for the still minor girl than the " escort girl" way.

A past that she assumes:

she told the scheduled hours with Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema when she was a minor, she said it was her choice, a way to earn money and go up socially.

From his meeting with the director Rebecca Zlotowski, normalist, is born a film:

"An easy girl", awarded Cannes Film Festival.

"But he's a Rohmer character!

She speaks as in the 60s, she has an elegance, a maintenance, a discipline in the way of talking that are upsetting.

Suddenly, I had in front of me the junction between Kim Kardashian and Luis Bunuel and that was interesting.

It's a character, an actress that I wanted to film, "says the director.

Zahia plays in Sofia's "Easy Girl", an escort girl who sleeps with a rich man in exchange for sumptuous gifts.

"On the screen it looks like Brigitte Bardot time The contempt, sexier and totally sulphurous."

La Mostra de Venise, le plus ancien festival de cinéma au monde et l'antichambre des Oscars, s'ouvre mercredi 28 août avec de nombreuses stars attendues mais aussi de nombreuses critiques.

« Un violeur. Deux femmes réalisatrices en compétition. Qu'est-ce que j'ai raté d'autre ? », a tweeté après l'annonce de la sélection fin juillet la fondatrice de Women and Hollywood, Melissa Silverstein, pour qui le Festival est complètement sourd aux questions liées à #MeToo et Time's Up.

« C'est comme s'ils appréciaient d'être le dernier des dinosaures », a renchéri la réalisatrice Laura Kaehr, coprésidente de l'association suisse SWAN (Swiss Women's Audiovisual Network), citée par le magazine américain The Hollywood Reporter.

Tout d'abord la sélection des cinéastes controversés tels que Roman Polanski et Nate Parker fait couler beaucoup d'encre. La sélection de J'accuse, le dernier film du réalisateur franco-polonais Roman Polanski, thriller sur l'Affaire Dreyfus avec Jean Dujardin, passe mal : le cinéaste de 86 ans, exclu de l'Académie des Oscars en 2018, est toujours poursuivi par la justice américaine pour le viol d'une adolescente en 1977. Il ne sera d’ailleurs pas présent au festival vénitien.

Pour Catherine Deneuve cependant, présente pour le film de Kore-Eda, La Vérité, la polémique autour de la sélection du film est « d’une violence inouïe » et « totalement excessive ».

Mais la polémique ne s'arrête pas au cinéaste franco-polonais : à Venise sera également projeté American Skin, nouveau long-métrage de Nate Parker. Ce réalisateur, à qui l'on doit The Birth of a Nation, avait été acquitté en 2011 pour le viol d'une étudiante, qui a fini par se suicider en 2016.

On peut aussi déplorer la présence de deux seules réalisatrices - la Saoudienne Haifaa Al-Mansour avec The Perfect Candidate, et l'Australienne Shannon Murphy avec Babyteeth pendant que le Festival de Cannes a sélectionné cette année quatre réalisatrices en compétition, et la Berlinale sept.

« Nous savons tous que le monde a changé après #MeToo », a renchéri la fondatrice de Women and Hollywood, Melissa Silverstein. « La question que je pose est : “Est-ce un manque de conscience ou une indifférence délibérée ?” ».

A la présidente du jury du 76e Festival du film de Venise, Lucrecia Martel, de marteler: « Exclure ou mettre Polanski [en compétition] nous oblige à discuter, ce n'est pas une question simple à résoudre ».

American star Scarlett Johansson, Marvel's now-famous Black Widow, remained in 2019 the best-paid actress in the world for the second consecutive year, according to the annual Forbes magazine ranking released Friday.

However, pay inequalities are also hard in Hollywood: despite the 56 million dollars received, Scarlett Johansson only reaches the eighth place in the ranking for all comedians, men and women alike.

The 34-year-old actress, who will resume her role as Black Widow next year for a film derived from the Avengers, has yet earned 15.5 million more than in 2018, mainly thanks to the worldwide success of the latest installment of the saga, "Avengers: Endgame", which earned him a check of some 35 million.

But for comparison, Robert Downey Jr., who plays Iron Man alongside him in the Marvel saga, was paid about $ 55 million for his role in the same movie. million).

In second place in the women's rankings, there is a newcomer, Sofia Vergara, star of the television sitcom "Modern Family", with 44.1 million dollars (from June 1, 2018 to June 1, 2019).

She is followed by Reese Witherspoon (35 million) and Nicole Kidman (34 million), the two stalwarts of the series "Big Little Lies".

Number three in 2018, mainly thanks to advertisements for major brands, Jennifer Aniston is this year relegated to fifth place, with still $ 28 million.

Newcomers include Elizabeth Moss, revealed by The Handmaid's Tale: The Scarlet Servant, and Australian Margot Robbie.

In terms of going out, Angelina Jolie, number two in the rankings last year, left the Top 10, as did Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence.

Les Golden Globes viennent d’annoncer la sélection des films, acteurs, actrices, réalisateurs et chansons qui pourront prétendre à décrocher leur trophée.

The viewer may at first feel confused by a feature film by Quentin Tarantino, with his favorite assets, be it the exploded narrative construction of Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, the historical revisionism of Inglorious Basterds or Django Unchained. and the theme of the revenge of Kill Bill or Death Blvd.

The camera is simply encrusted, as in a documentary, in the mysteries of seventh art in Hollywood.

Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) are at the heart of Quentin Tarantino's ninth film.

The first is a successful actor in a series, but struggling to regain a second wind with the stuntman Cliff Booth, his long-time lining at the cinema while a producer (camped by Al Pacino) advises him recycling in the B series of Cinecittà. Two old-fashioned thieves, who see their world go out as Hollywood becomes the landmark of the hippie wave and the organized counterculture.

The viewer then travels behind the scenes of the 1969 Hollywood, between tragicomic scenes and gags, scenes of waterfall, played nonchalantly by Brad Pitt not left to distribute torgnoles around, Bud Spencer way ..

Between hippies, the beauty of Los Angeles and a demented cast (including Margot Robbie, Emile Hirsch, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning or Kurt Russell and Michael Madsen), Quentin Tarantino walks his camera.

But Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood is not a Tarantino as we know them. A counter-current of his cinema, far from the graphic and stylized violence, the explosive staging or the art of dialogues written with a knife, this feature film is slow, contemplative of a forgotten period, a Californian postcard both real and fictional of a certain American dream.

Not to mention the shadow of Sharon Tate assassinated by the sect Manson, which emerges from the fiction to better connect the work to a historical reality, located at the twilight of the hippie movement.

"Once upon a time" is not a title chosen by chance.

"It's the key to tales, the magic formula that delivers all other limits than those of the imagination."

With Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood, released July 27 in the United States, the screenwriter made his best start in theaters. A must see.

Second film by young Israeli director Yuval Adler, "The Operative" is the adaptation of a novel by his compatriot Yifatch Reicher Atir, a former Mossad officer who became an author who wrote The English Teacher

"When I read it, explains the director, I was captivated.

His care in describing the psychological consequences of the spy's work, his extreme attention to detail and his exploration of the personal aspect of human intelligence fascinated me.

The book is based on real agents and facts, so it was heavily censored for its publication in Israel. "

The spy travels regularly to Germany to debrief Thomas, his liaison officer (Martin Freeman).

Until the day she disappears radars, after being close to Farhad (Cas Anvar), a local businessman.

Yuval Adler does not put the suspense, the film tells the story of Rachel's flashbacks, while Thomas, who left the Mossad, is questioned by his former superiors desperate to get his hands on his ex-boyfriend. protected.

It quickly became apparent that he harbored feelings other than mere professional esteem and that Rachel did not tell the whole truth about her identity.

In an ultra-realistic vein the director takes the viewer on the steps of his heroine on edge. A Kruger Diana breathtaking, violent and fragile at the same time.

Did director Abdellatif Kechiche go too far in abusing, in his last film, sexual scenes with his actress Ophélie Bau?

Given the outcry provoked at the Cannes Film Festival and again now it seems relevant to ask.

The ex-Miss Besançon does not seem to hide her embarrassment in the hot scene.

The actress had kindly gone up the stairs with the film crew, but she had not attended the screening of the film or the press conference ...

It seems a long time ago, not so far, however, when a pretty young girl of 21 years won the title of Miss Besançon. It was in 2014 and Ophélie Bau was still called Ophélie Baufle, daughter of a lawyer registered at the bar of the city. Her project at that time was to become a pediatric nurse.

The director of La Graine and the mule focused all his attention on this girl without any experience of the stage or the cameras. During the broadcast of the second part of the very long film (3:28), Mektoub Intermezzo, screened during the last festival the public Cannes did not hide some discomfort after the projection of the thirteen-minute long real sex scene.

And the testimonies about the pressures exerted during the filming only served to reinforce the discomfort. The agent of the actress officially accused the director of having prevented his protégé from viewing the scenes editing, as it seemed planned.

Kechiche has finally proposed to Ophélie Bau to choose and remove the scenes involving her and that she would consider shocking in her film.

If the film subsequently belongs to the audience, it must not escape the control of the actress.

The disgraced former producer has found a civil financial agreement with several of his alleged victims and creditors for $ 44 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. The agreement, which has not yet been signed, would include all the civil proceedings against the former Hollywood magnate, including in Canada and the United Kingdom.

Thirty million of the 44 million dollars should be attributed to different victims of the American producer, but also to former employees of his production company and creditors of the latter.

In addition to alleged victims - sexual harassment can only be the subject of civil suits - and creditors, the settlement would also cover a case initiated by New York State Attorney Eric Schneiderman. This assignment was intended to ensure that the alleged victims would indeed be compensated.

However, the transaction does not exempt Harvey Weinstein from criminal proceedings against him and should bring him a trial in September for alleged sexual assault

The ousted producer, catalyst of the #MeToo movement, was indicted last year for two rapes - one in 2013 and another, a blowjob, in 2006 - on two different women. He faces life imprisonment if he is convicted at the end of his trial.

Since October 2017, more than 80 women have publicly accused Harvey Weinstein, 67, former boss of the prestigious Miramax studios, of raping, sexually assaulting or harassing them.

Among them celebrities like Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie or Salma Hayek.

It was one of the most anticipated films of the festival this year: launched Thursday night with great fanfare in Cannes, Rocketman conquered festival-goers with its flamboyant staging and breathtaking musical numbers.

Rocketman, a film like Elton John: extravagant, exciting and spectacular.

At the end of the biopic screening in the presence of legend Elton John and Taron Egerton, who brilliantly portrays him in the film, the audience gave him a long ovation.

Director Dexter Fletcher has achieved a feat with this surprising film that recounts Elton John's rapid rise to rock heights in the early 1970s.

Conceived more as a musical than a conventional biopic drama at the Bohemian Rhapsody (a film Fletcher has worked on), Rocketman surprises with his boldness, his madness and his originality because it reflects the life of the popstar without hiding the dark side and the more difficult stages of his life, explained Dexter Fletcher.

From his stormy relationship with his parents, including his mother played by Bryce Dallas Howard, to his meteoric rise, his fine friendship with his lyricist (Jamie Bell) and his first devastating love (Richard Madden) to his addictions to drugs, alcohol and sex, the film hides nothing from the first chaotic but crucial years of the life of the star. Wanted "as honest as possible" by Elton John, "Rocketman" also shows "the low, very low, and high, very high" of his existence.

Present on site, Sir Elton John could not hold back his tears when the public gave him a long ovation at the end of the screening. And it is the reddened eyes, behind his heart-shaped glasses, that he reappeared.

He was not the only one out of this world premiere, as the entire cast, actor Taron Egerton and director Dexter Fletcher in the lead, as well as his long-time friend, his lyricist Bernie Taupin, shared this emotion in the Grand Théâtre Lumière.

"For me, it was the best day of my life," admitted British actor Taron Egerton, who burst on the screen as the famous singer.

"The reaction of the audience made us very happy because we worked very hard to make a film that would not be a classic biographical drama. Our main concern was to celebrate the work of Elton John, but also to tell a human story. "

A total musical immersion in the daily life of a unique personality! The great show in which Taron Egerton amazes by making the show.

A cheeky actor who has made many comedies, Jean-Pierre Marielle died at the age of 87 following a long illness on Wednesday (April 24th).

"Agathe Marielle is saddened to announce that her husband, the actor Jean-Pierre Marielle, died April 24, at 16:24, at the hospital of Four-Cities, Saint-Cloud, the following of a long illness. The funeral will be held in the strictest intimacy, "said his wife in a statement.

Coming from a very modest background, he is destined for literary studies. But a teacher from his high school advises him to turn to theatrical studies.

He then enters the Conservatoire de Paris and meets some happy fellows: Belmondo, Rochefort Cremer, Rich, Vernier, Beaune. Seven young men from very different backgrounds who become friends. The laughter, the tears, the disappointments, the love stories weld them for a lifetime.

"There are years of group of actors, like years of painters, musicians, it's like plum years, like the pinard. It's like that, "said Jean-Pierre Marielle, faithful to his line of conduct:
do not fetch noon to four o'clock

He is first and foremost known for his role as boasters, his lanky tall figure, his voice cavernous, guttural, fleshy with a huge laugh that tobacco was scuffing.

Throughout his long career in the cinema he embodies in the comedies the role of the average French, mocking and good living salacious verb ("You feel the piss you, not the holy water ..." "It's a beautiful p ' tit piece, eh, it's well worth the shot. ") with its arsenal of expressions of yesteryear (" miche "," my little one ").

Of the hundreds of roles he has played, he will remain, forever, this representative in umbrellas, great lover of later

("Oh that ass!" Looks like a Courbet.), Who looses woman and children to become a painter on the coasts of Finistere, in Les Galettes de Pont-Aven (1975) his greatest popular success.

This unclassifiable film by Joël Séria is punctuated by

"Oh, damn shit god name! Of a Marielle who raises verbal crudity at the top of the great art ...

"He could say very raw dialogues without ever being vulgar; on the contrary, he gave them almost class, "boasted Joel Seria, who had to fight to impose Marielle title role of his Galettes.

But these are dramatic roles that bring him a high notoriety in the profession, especially in Bertrand Tavernier's "La fête commence" (1974), where Jean-Pierre Marielle plays a Marquis de Pontcallec grandiloquent.

Les Galettes de Pont-Aven (1975) by Joël Séria, a cult film in which he plays a banal citizen in search of identity and happiness, this performance will earn him an appointment as a best actor at the first ceremony of the Caesar.

A moment of misguidance (1977) by Claude Berri where he embodies a difficult role of father falling in love with the daughter of his best friend, or Coup de torchon (1981) by Bertrand Tavernier, he embodies both a a filthy pimp and his military brother.

This double composition will earn him a second appointment to the César, this time as a supporting role. In 1991, he made the most important film of his career. Every morning in the world, directed by Alain Corneau, who adapts Pascal Quignard's novel, and asks existential questions about art, music and emotion. Jean-Pierre Marielle plays Jean de Sainte-Colombe, widow and Jansenist violist, refusing the honors of Versailles and the solicitations of Louis XIV to live in recluse in the countryside with his two daughters before he accepts, despite himself, to receive a student named Marin Marais, played at different ages by Guillaume and Gérard Depardieu.

Every morning in the world is awarded the Louis Delluc Prize 1991 and seven Césars in 1992.

On the boards, he also leads a brilliant career. Jean-Pierre Marielle was pleased to read and say the words of Molière, Ionesco, Pinter, Pirandello, Anouilh, Chekhov, Claudel ...

In 1994, he won the Molière award for Best Actor for his role in Harold Pinter's The Return. In 2014, he is playing Love Letters at the Antoine Theater in Paris.

"The theater is always a very present emotion in me. Hear the three strokes, the curtain rising and the murmur of the room, then we start.

Like writers, the Prix Goncourt, we are still waiting for the role that will make you something that you can not imagine, even in your dearest desires. ".

Modest this great comedian said of himself that he was stalled nothing:

"I'm shifted, not stalled. There is nothing better than being quirky.»

She stars in "Anna" whose first teaser has just been unveiled:

Sasha Luss, became the new icon of Luc Besson.

Sasha Luss, that all the houses of great creators get away from Louis Vuitton Prada through Balenciaga has already played for the French director in

"Valerian and the City of a thousand planets" in 2017.

It was hard to recognize her under the digital mask of her character, Princess Lihö-Minaa, transformed by the morphing technique used by James Cameron before Luc Besson in "Avatar".

Two years later, the young woman is indeed the star of this action movie shot late 2017 at the Cité du Cinéma in Paris.

Born in 1982 in the seaport of Magadan, Eastern Siberia, Sasha Luss participates in dance competitions.

An ankle injury forced her to give up her dreams of ballerina.

She becomes a model, winning her first contract at the age of 14.

From magazine covers to fashion shows, she caught the attention of foreign designers and Karl Lagerfeld chose her for a Chanel fashion show in 2001.

Of all the Fashion Week, she also appears in the mythical Pirelli calendar, in 2015, in front of the lens of the photographer Steven Meisel.

Now represented by IMG Models, sister agency Bella and Gigi Hadid, she has a dual career as a model and actress.

Luc Besson chooses his muses, all heroines with grip :

Anne Parillaud in Nikita, Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element, Scarlett Johansson in Lucy........

and Anna in the eponymous film, an explosive mix between Nikita, Lucy and the Leeloo of the "Fifth Element".

And the director of the "Big Blue" has healed his cast: the one who pulls faster than his shadow will have by his side Cillian Murphy (the Peaky Blinders series), Helen Mirren (The Queen) or Luke Evans (Fast and Furious).

Action movie in theaters on July 10th.

And yes for his fourth wedding Nicolas Cage remained married four days.

He married in Las Vegas a young woman Erika Koike he was more or less frequent, a makeup artist saying what it was what she told him or what he wanted to make journalists believe not to blacken this board.

Yes, before he did some night outings or previews with this bimbo.

This once blonde once blonde brunette is a former prisoner.

Damn and in addition to makeup only the name this he discovered at the time of the divorce of the annulment of his marriage because his habit to this tigress is to rip off the wealthy people.

He had married her in Las Vegas she was in an unusual state of alcoholism she completely sober.

Moreover, icing on the cake, he learned that she is in a relationship with a young man of her age.

Hence the rupture was final.

What would be interesting to know for the cancellation how much has to pay Nicolas Cage.

Did this young woman ask her for child support ?

Go without remorse, to the next...

She had the haircut cut in the monk's bowl that never left her. She had the sparkling eye of the early photographer - she studied photography at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and the history of art at the Louvre School - later as a filmmaker. Agnès Varda passed away on Friday, March 29, 2019, at the age of 90.

Agnès Varda was one of the pioneers of the New Wave, and one of the few women filmmakers of the New Wave, with Nelly Kaplan, who will later sign The Pirate's Bride, in 1969.

From her first shoot she was noticed: La Pointe courte (1955) announces the New Wave five years before "A bout de souffle" (1960) by Jean-Luc Godard.

She films the marital problems of a couple of Parisians (Philippe Noiret and Silvia Monfort). This first attempt, which mixes with chronic means of realism and psychological study, preludes, in 1954, to the audacities of the New Wave. "In 1954, I was a photographer at the TNP and I knew little about cinema.

It seemed to me then that many "literary revolutions" did not have their equivalent on the screen. So I was inspired, for my research, Faulkner, Brecht, trying to break the construction of the story, to find a tone both objective and subjective, to leave the viewer his freedom of judgment and participation. ", She explained in an interview to Le Monde, in 1962.

First female filmmaker of this new cinema of the sixties, first feminist icon too.

She presents in Cannes in 1961 her second feature film, Cléo from 5 to 7. The film tells eighty-six minutes of the life of a young woman, a superficial singer who awaits the results of a medical analysis and who is afraid. But the film puts especially on stage a feminine liberation by the representation of a radical gesture: neither wig nor undressed in feathers.

Because Agnes Varda is engaged. A committed feminist, she signed in 1971 the Manifesto of 343 sluts, a call for the legalization of abortion. She directed in a feature film a demonstration in front of the court of Bobigny, where is held the trial of five women who practiced the interruption of pregnancy In 1976, his musical, One sings, the other not , told the emancipation of women at the turn of the 1960-1970s. The story of a friendship between two opposing characters, which, in the background, tells the story of women's rights. "The double day, poor mom, it's exhausting and it's poorly paid." In Sans toit ni loi Agnès Varda traces the destiny of a girl on the ban of society, Mona, masterfully interpreted by young Sandrine Bonnaire. A heroine in love with freedom. The film wins the Golden Lion in Venice.

Until the end, his life was cinema, and vice versa, with his company of production and distribution installed at home (Ciné-Tamaris), street Daguerre, in the 14th district of Paris. With the filmmaker Jacques Demy, who died in 1990, she shared life, love and cinema. But always in love with independence. "I lived for years with Jacques Demy. I was not stupefied by that. I kept my name, I continued to do my job and share what we can share with a man, that is life, family life, the table, the bed. But not personal identity, nor work, "she told in an interview with Nova.

"Feminists are right to yell! ", She claimed again in 2017 in an interview in Le Monde.

Does Burton remake Tim Burton ? While some would argue that Big Fish is his last masterpiece, others believe that Miss Peregrine and individual children already symbolized her rebirth.

And what about "Dumbo" which arrives in theaters this Wednesday, March 27?

Tim Burton accepted this time to take the classic Dumbo but with a shift in point of view. Dumbo new generation abandons the look of the baby elephant for that of new protagonists.

Tim Burton's film is more than just a remake, above all thanks to Ehren Kruger's script, very faithful to the spirit of the original while inventing characters and adventures very coherent with the universe of the flying elephant.

Like Holt Farrier (Colin Firth), veteran of the First World War, with one arm less, back in the circus he was once the star.

There he finds his two children, Milly and Joe, struggling with the recent death of their mother. The time is not over: Max Medici (Danny DeVito), owner of the place, sees his small business know the crisis.

Then arises the solution to all its evils: an elephant, quick to attract crowds under its tent. The sequel is known to all: Dumbo finds himself separated from his mother, discovered, then flew into a memorable finale.

Disney's animated cartoon only lasted an hour, Tim Burton was able to develop the frame at leisure. Aesthetically, the leg of the filmmaker is felt from the introduction: the faces of freaks scrolling on a train.

It is especially in the pure circus scenes that the film stands out, rediscovering the childlike magic of the original. Special mentions for the fabulous soap bubble issue and all the scenes where Dumbo flies over the floor.

After this familiar beginning, the feature film turns into an anti-capitalist charge, crossed by a figure of unscrupulous businessman. VA Vandevere (Michael Keaton), owner of Dreamland Amusement Park, buys Dumbo and hosts the Medici troupe in his entertainment empire. We then find in "Dumbo" the criticism of businessmen who think they can buy everything, and who, by transforming a craft into an industry, kill all the poetry.

It is also rather piquant that this "Dumbo" by Burton, a true ode to fragile and defenseless artists, is produced by the current Disney group , become the giant of the show industry in Hollywood and around the world .

Tale about the perils of selling his soul to a multinational, Dumbo also apprehends as a mirror on the relationship between directors and major studios.

To this metaphor, we prefer the visual deluge offered by the filmmaker, barely entered this lair of excess. What to compensate for the defects of the film ... When the camera lingers on Dumbo, observing the crowd in a subjective camera, or dotted to the rhythm of the music of Danny Elfman, the film finally finds its true magic .

In the cast, we find Eva Green in the role of Colette Marchant, a beautiful trapeze artist locked in her golden cage. Colin Farrell, the cowboy back from war. But also Nico Talking, Finley Hobbins, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVit.

Between emotions and thrills, the film holds its promises of visual and childish magic at a time. A licked feature film that offers burst moments of brilliance.

Dumbo, Tim Burton's fantasy film with: Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito ...

Duration: 1 h 52.

Avec Us, Jordan Peele veut rectifier le tir et, comme il le déclarait récemment à Rolling Stone, souhaite cette fois faire un pur film d’horreur après que l'académie des Golden Globes a classé son "Get Out" dans la catégorie... comédie.

« Je suis tellement dingue de films d'horreur que la confusion autour du genre de 'Get Out' m'a un peu brisé le cœur », confiait récemment Jordan Peele à Rolling Stone. « En tant que fan d'horreur, je voulais vraiment apporter ma contribution à cet univers ».C'est chose faite.

Il met en scène une famille, les Wilson, qui s’apprête à passer des vacances agréables dans leur maison près de la côte. Du moins, c’est ce qu’ils pensaient.

Un soir, alors qu’ils se reposent après un après-midi à la plage, une étrange famille tente de pénétrer dans leur maison.

Les vacances idylliques prennent une tournure sombre et dramatique famille...toute une famille en combinaison rouge est déterminée à rentrer dans la maison en pleine nuit !

Des doubles maléfiques ?

Que veulent-ils ?

Que va-t-il se passer?

Jordan Peele devient alors le nouveau maître de l'horreur. N'y a-t-il rien de plus effrayant que de voir un inconnu s’infiltrer chez soi au milieu de la nuit ?

D’être confronté à une violence gratuite ?

Au sadisme le plus pur ?

Alors que les Wilson se retrouvent face à leurs doubles diaboliques, Jordan Peele applique les ficelles du genre :

jump scares,ourse-poursuite et chants lyriques à contre-emploi. Par les sons de plus en plus puissants et oppressants, les mouvements de caméra, ou encore par une utilisation intelligente de la pénombre, Jordan Peele livre ici un travail particulièrement abouti au niveau de l’ambiance, sonore comme visuelle.

Et puis il y a ce magnifique travail sur la photographie de Mike Gioulakis (qui confirme être devenu indispensable après It Follows ou encore Glass) et la partition musicale de Michael Abels qui nous happe dans l'univers glauque dulong-métrage. On y côtoie Lynch, Bergman ou Hitchcock mais pas seulement dans l'horreur ...

Car si Us se décline comme un film d’horreur il aborde aussi le thème du double qui a hanté les maîtres du genre que sont aussi Lynch, Bergman ou Hitchcock.

La perte d'identité reste en effet un fil conducteur, du « je n’ai pas l’impression d’être moi-même » d’Adelaïde au panneau « Find yourself » au-dessus de l’entrée du Palais des glaces. Et à la question « Qui êtes-vous ? », les alter-ego de la famille Wilson répondent d'ailleurs : « Nous sommes Américains ».

Le réalisateur souligne cet aspect du home invasion movie, cette peur de l'étranger. « Ce film est sur [les États-Unis]. Qu’il s’agisse de ce mystérieux envahisseur qu’on imagine venir, essayer de nous tuer, prendre nos emplois, ou de la faction, qui vit loin, et a voté différemment de nous », assène-t-il.

Côté casting, on retrouve Lupita Nyong’o et Winston Duke (récemment vus dans Black Panther) dans le rôle des parents, ainsi qu’Evan Alex et Shahadi Wright Joseph dans celui des enfants. Sidérants.

Direction the confines of the galaxy, with Captain Marvel. Captain Marvel traces the story of Carol Danvers who, in the 90s, became one of the most powerful heroines that ever existed. While the Earth becomes the scene of a galactic conflict between two Kree and Skrull extraterrestrial races, Captain Marvel has only one solution: to intervene.

From the post-generic scene of the tragic Avengers, Infinity War, Marvel fans were eager to discover the character who will undoubtedly play a major role in End Game, the next installment of the pharaonic saga.

Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, in an original story inspired by Star Trek as well as Paris-Texas.

The fighting scenes are well done. Brie Larson, who has trained a lot, is up to the challenge. Millimetered, the choreographies are impressive and are linked without ever getting bored.

She spared no effort to be at the physical height of this new challenge: "I pushed my body and my mind to their limits, it was my goal during these 9 months of training, go further and further The actress explained.

But while falling under the most basic origin story, Captain Marvel is much more complicated in his writing, with flashbacks, visions and mental manipulations on the menu.

"The first Marvel film worn by a woman".

A woman headlining in a 90s retro mood. By borrowing the costume of the incarnation comics version 2012 Captain Marvel, thought by comics writer Kelly Sue DeConnick to be a female Chuck Yeager, Brie Larson has no trouble being a role model steel hardened: a women pilot of jets within the US Air Force in a completely natural and assumed way.

She is perfect as a post-metoo super-heroine, a feminist in combi, rejecting the grip of the male manipulator with as much vigor and charisma as humor. Twenty-year-old Nick Fury has a sympathetic relationship with the superheroine. , providing a pleasant dynamic to the story.

Brie Larson, Oscar winner in 2016 for her role in Room, is the perfect actress to take the role, not just super-heroine, but also model.

She knows how to give life to this powerful and confident woman because Marvel's fight resides above all in feminist empowerment.

Although the feature film sometimes allows itself a lack of inventiveness, especially in its universe of space opera, Carol Danvers, nourished by Brie Larson, who will undoubtedly play a major role in End Game, the next installment of the saga, opens exciting prospects for science fiction fans.

Release date 6 March 2019 (2h 04min), Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck , with Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law.

Black film. A Los Angeles police detective, Erin Bell, infiltrates a gang of robbers, but his mission ended tragically.

Years later, woman destroyed and isolated Erin attempts unsuccessfully to reconnect with her daughter, whom she has neglected for too long, and who rejects her.

When the leader of the band resurfaces, Erin will resume the investigation to understand the events that led to the tragedy ...

After the dark invitation The Invitation, Karyn Kusama plunges once again into a tortured psyche.

That of Erin Bell, police officer breaking the ban, who is suddenly haunted by an old investigation, which cost him his dignity and innocence.

From his first pictures, Destroyer chooses to give Nicole Kidman all the space. Bursty skin, bloodshot eyes and chapped lips, her ravaged face occupies all the space and she imposes herself in every scene.

The cutting of the film follows its claudicante step, making the screen an extension of this investigator on the verge of exploding in flight.

To the performer Nicole Kidman bravo for his total performance, his transforming feat!

But if the power of dread and drunkenness that irradiates this character is real, Karyn Kusama forgets to evolve in a palpable universe.

Behind the audacity of the disfigurement, the performance remains frozen that is not forgotten in favor of the character, female cop eaten away by an old drama.

The supporting roles are barely sketched, transparent. The neuroses and fantasies of his anti-heroes remain impenetrable.

As for the narrative, a very classic case of perdition and redemption in the criminal slums of Los Angeles ...

However, we do not see the two hours of watching this panting thriller of Karyn Kusama.

Who for the next roles in James Bond 25 ?

We already know that Daniel Craig will play for the last time in the next and 25th episode of the James Bond saga.

That Lea Seydoux who was already playing in Specter will be next to 007.

That Cary Joji Fukunaga (Beast of No Nation) is the director.

That the 25th game of the spy in the service of His Majesty will start next spring.

But who for the other roles ?

The distribution seems to be more and more precise.

For the next villain the Oscar-winning actor Rami Malek, Freddie Mercury Bohemian Rhapsody, would have been approached!

And in James Bond Girl, another star perhaps with the Oscar-winning heroine of Twelve Years a Slave, Lupita Nyong'o

Billy Magnussen, who collaborated with Fukunaga in the Maniac series, is also in the running.

The lucky winners will join Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q) and Ralph Fiennes (M) in this James Bond scheduled for the spring of 2020.

Before finding a successor to Daniel Craig.

The actor of the Game of Thrones series, Scottish Richard Madden in the shoes of James Bond who knows ?

Finally, he named his first feature film, Antonin Baudry, who, as a professional diplomat, had used the pseudonym of Abel Lanzac for the Quai d'Orsay screenplay.

And with maestro.

The song of the wolf captivates its spectators.

This hyperrealist and mysterious first film reinvents the genre in an underwater nuclear war, where the events are linked to tap the spectators to their seats.

Spectators are immediately projected into the heart of a dangerous operation, off Syria in a French nuclear submarine whose mission is to recover emergency soldiers under the nose and beard of an enemy submarine.

All the crew has their eyes on Chanteraide, a young soldier (François Civil) expert in acoustic warfare, nicknamed the Golden Ear who must focus on a threatening sound, which he has great difficulty in deciphering.

An irreproachable cast where Paula Beer plays the utilities, the charismatic Omar Sy, Reda Kateb and Mathieu Kassovitz embody the characters of the submarine.

The film puts viewers in total immersion. Scenes of a striking realism.

A bewitching sound universe. Awesome suspense ...

The submarine "The frightful" and his crew confined in a closed camera will they manage to thwart the irreversible mechanism of a nuclear confrontation ?
Up to Sidney Lumet's (1964) film end-point, during the Cold War era ?

The Berlin Film Festival handed the Golden Bear to Nadav Lapid on Saturday for "Synonyms" an Israeli film that unreservedly addresses the political and social turmoil of the Jewish state. Synonyms, inspired by the life of the filmmaker in Paris in the early 2000s, depicts the tribulations of Yoav, IDF veteran, who rejects his country and refuses to speak Hebrew where he went to Paris.

"Synonyms is a film that could be considered a scandal in Israel," Nadal Lapid said, receiving his prize in Berlin, the first prize awarded to an Israeli director. "The film addresses the problem of the Israeli collective soul" "embodied by a mix of strong men, violent and loyal to their country, without feeling doubts, without reservation," said the director pointing to the rise of nationalist sentiment in his country.

If the film addresses the questioning of the difficulty of being Israeli, it also looks at identity in general.

The grand prize of the jury was given to François Ozon's Grace thanks to the fight of three victims of a pedophile priest in Lyon to obtain justice. "It's a film that tries to break the silence of the Catholic Church in France," said French director François Ozon. "This is a true story and there is great resistance in France," he continued. Justice must say next week if the film can come out Wednesday or not.

German director Nora Fingscheidt, who presented her first feature film, Systemsprenger , a portrait of a violent childhood, was awarded the Alfred Bauer Prize. The script prize went to writer Roberto Saviano, screenwriter Maurizio Braucci and director Claudio Giovannesi for their adaptation of Piranhas , Roberto Saviano's first novel about climbing a gang of children in a neighborhood in Naples.

China was also honored at the Berlinale. The awards went to Yong Mei and Wang Jinchun, the couple of actors of Di Jiu tiang chang ( Farewell, my son ) of Wan Xiaoshuai. It's the story of a couple losing their only child ....

Juliette Binoche regretted, on behalf of the jury, the unexpected absence of A second , the feature film by Zhang Yimou who was to compete for the Golden Bear.

"We need artists who make sense of history," she added.

Complete list:

Golden Bear: Navad Lapid's Synonyms

"Fine connoisseur of the secrets of American politics, Dick Cheney succeeded, without a hitch, in getting himself elected vice-president alongside George W. Bush.

Having become the most powerful man in the country, he has largely contributed to the imposition of a new world order whose consequences are still felt today ... "

Adam McKay signs Vice with a twirling comedy, using all the possible methods of the genre but it also offers a burning political fire, aimed directly at the US administration and Dick Cheney in particular.

It is indeed the vice-president, secret and dark, Dick Cheney, incarnated by the magnificent Christian Bale, who will shape under the two terms Bush the new world order.

This black eminence of the Bush administration has been used among others 9/11 attacks to give America its warrior face.

And Secretary of State Colin Powell, forced by his superiors to lie in front of the UN Security Council on February 5, 2003, to display fake evidence to prove that Saddam Hussein, hand in hand with Al-Qaida, was about to destroy the world.

And we know more ...

But behind this comedy of power carried out by a five-star cast, do not look for a message more subtle than a Manicheism between good and bad.

And for good reason, Vice is convinced to belong to the camp of Good and morality.

With "The Big Short. The breakout of the century, "McKay showed a corrupt America, rapacious, villainous. With "Vice" the satire is pushed to the extreme.

You may not know it yet. But in the United States, parliamentarian Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka @AOC on Twitter has become a real celebrity.

Ex-barmaid born in the Bronx, youngest elected in history at Congress at 29, figurehead of the new Democratic wave, it is talking about it proposing a 70% tax on high income or ensuring live videos on social networks while cooking.

This is the story of a self-made woman as America loves. Netflix understood it well.

At the Sundance Film Festival, the video streaming giant spent a staggering $ 10 million to afford Knock Down the House's documentary rights to its midterm campaign.

In competition with Amazon and Hulu on the case, Netflix has not hesitated to increase. Never had a channel spent so much on a documentary.

For comparison, this is double the $ 5 million already spent by Netflix in 2017 for Icare, the Oscar-winning documentary on Russian doping.

This investment speaks volumes about Netflix's strategy, but also about the development of this market. Indeed, at this same Sundance festival, Amazon has offered five works for $ 46 million to feed its Prime Video service.

The group Los Gatos has the same ambition to expand its catalog of original programs. According to analysts the platform would invest $ 12 billion in production and content purchase in 2019, having already paid 8 billion in 2018.

The competition is sharpening in the sector.

In a hegemonic position so far, Netflix will lose 20% of its catalog, Disney, AT & T / Time Warner or Comcast repatriating their series and movies to their own streaming platform.

The Disney group will launch its own Disney + service late 2019 and has already announced Wednesday, February 6, that his next blockbuster "Captain Marvel" would not be available in the Netflix catalog.

The US giant must therefore respond if it wants to fuel the growth of its customer base of 130 million paying users.

ith La Favorite, Lanthimos takes us to 18th century England for an uncompromising dive into the backstage of Queen Anne Stuart's court, the last of the lineage.

The period costumes, the cracking parquet floor, the burning candles, the duels with the pistol, and the violent exchanges in a glitzy setting what better for an umpteenth historical film like Farewell to the queen of Benoît Jacquot.

Well no, the director dusted the costume film register into a life-size massacre game between three timeless, perverse female figures.

In a closed chamber, the characters are all vile, selfish, cruel and manipulative because everything in La Favorite is a matter of domination.

To dominate the country and to dominate one's neighbor are two attitudes that are indistinguishable.

It is Abigail, a young fallen aristocrat who desires to recover her rank at all costs; it is Lady Sarah, friend of the queen, who governs with an iron fist the country, and it is the queen with the fickle character who becomes object of conquest.

The scenario juggles with this three-person household formed by these heroines by imagining the different possible combinations to better undo them later.

Women of temperament, served by actresses at the top of their art for a biting satire on human baseness.

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos 2:00 am with Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone

Clint Eastwood back in front of and behind the camera, after eleven years of absence, sign with

"La Mule" a road movie that is both touching and funny.

He plays Earl Stone, a horticulturist passionate about lilies who, overcome by the Internet revolution, is forced to sell his once flourishing business.

Ruined this old papy soon nonagenarian, who does nothing like the others, reconverted in the transport of cocaine between Mexico and the United States, in the service of a powerful cartel.

Break with his family, his ex-wife and his daughter, this reassuring grandpa driving his old pickup truck and a brand new 4 x 4, will end up serving as a "mule" to drug traffickers until ...

And behind this inveterate driver hides the great Clint Eastwood.

The arid simplicity with which he films his face, become lunar landscape, his trembling mouth and his parchment skin are so many suspended moments.

The image of his arthritic hands, as he tries to greedily grab the hips of a prostitute, are all reminders of an intense life that only expects death.

And before our eyes, the great Clint Eastwood "refuses, despite the lurching, despite the falling night, to let go of the steering wheel".

Armin, hero in her forties from Ulrich Köhler's fourth feature film, In My Room, is at first sight a good loser.

He is a man to whom nothing succeeds, sailing from professional chess to sentimental disappointments.

He takes a girl home to whom he wants to impose a session of brushing teeth before sex and who ends up planting there like a poor woman.

He goes to his father's house where his grandmother dies.

But one morning he wakes up and all human beings are gone. Armin, Robinson Crusoe modern times, then takes a new start.

And the spectator will follow the meteoric transformation of his hero both physically and psychologically.

The paunchy, unhappy man is transformed into an accomplished, emaciated, muscular man who lives in osmosis with nature with strength and commitment.

The richness of the film lies in the filmmaker's ability to communicate, through his character, a life experience.

Developing the magical realism that was found at the end of his film Sleep Disease, Ulrich Köhler invites us to ponder the idea of ​​a world of absolute freedom that would only threaten our need for the other.

The loss of a loved one is incredibly violent, "he said in a voice of emotion. " This is my father. This is the last time he spoke, continued David Hallyday, upset by My Country is love, the last album of Johnny.

Everything was out of the ordinary at home. It's a record that will mark his career. The main thing is that his fans love him ... Without a public, an artist is not an artist. "

I have things to tell you.

His next album, which evokes this difficult mourning, "I have things to tell you," will be released on December 7th. "Music is therapeutic, do not keep things inside." Music has often brought father and son together over distances and wounds.

Also the son of the rocker makes his return on the media scene. As late as Saturday night, David Hallyday performed at the 20th edition of the NRJ Music Awards "My Last Letter", a first excerpt from his upcoming album "I have things to tell you", of which the other ten tracks will be released. December 7th.

I have things to say to you as a vibrant tribute to his father's personality and father-son transmission:

"A bond that still exists, even after death," he said. The clip that illustrates this title, directed by his sister Laura Smet, was broadcast behind the performance of the musician.

"She imagined everything, I trusted her completely , " said David Hallyday. In the clip of "My last letter," which is "an imaginary mail addressed by a father to his son," several symbolic images of Johnny Hallyday were slipped, all chosen by Laura Smet. A wolf also makes an appearance. "She hid a lot, we discover over the screenings ...

She's the one who imagined everything, I trusted her completely. We wanted this clip filled with symbols and love. People who disappear accompany us after death. This blue-eyed wolf is obviously my father. He had an animal side, like everyone in the family. O

It is the magic of our relationship . " " This blue-eyed wolf is obviously my father, " says the son of the Taulier. David Hallyday takes the opportunity to recall the valuable relationship that binds him to his half-sister Laura Smet: "She was the only one who could understand what I wanted to do. We lived the same things, we laughed and cried together . "We try to support each other and move forward in life," he adds .

The judicial battle.

But just as his sister David Hallyday does not fool. "For me, there will be things that will never come back , " he explains, sibylline. Does he refer to the attitude of his mother-in-law, Laeticia Hallyday, with whom he has been at loggerheads for several months?

If in the legal battle around the testament of Johnny Hallyday, David was the most discreet, he thought nevertheless manage the artistic legacy of his father.

In the book They Loved Each Other Just Published, journalist Lena Lutaud claims that David was confident that he would manage Johnny's artistic rights after his death. "Only you can manage moral rights , " his father would have certified in a 2015 discussion. Brother and sister try to demand a right of scrutiny in court but in vain, apparently there.

The singer will return on tour from January 11th .

"What a joy to witness the birth of an artist, the arrival of a comet that arouses laughter and tears with a singularity that bluffs us , " said Sandrine Kiberlain, president of the jury of the Film Festival American Deauville just before handing the prize.

"Thunder Road" of and with Jim Cummings received this Saturday the Grand Prix of the 44th Deauville American Film Festival.

And this film you must not miss it under any circumstances.

The Grand Prix was presented to Thunder Road, played, written and directed by Jim Cummings.

The film tells the story of a simple policeman, divorced and father of a girl, he has difficulties managing his emotions: an eternally lost. Nothing more classic than this plot!

And yet this film is a real nugget that balances between tears and laughter. His ex-wife threatens to take custody of his daughter, how will he react, what will happen?

Especially since the viewer is already warned: yes this Texas cop can not handle his emotions, yes his reactions surprise, from the first sequence of the film.

This is the day of the burial of his mother, Arnaud, Texan policeman, begins to talk, paying homage to the deceased and now the bereaved son derails and begins to mimic his mother, singer, passionate Bruce Springsteen, and especially the song that gives the title of his film.

Jim Cummings becomes the heart of the film with a crazy scale that this director, actor gives to his number, in front of and behind the camera.

A grain of madness. A new Charlie Chaplin !

"I grew up in New Orleans, where the myth of John Wayne hard is a religion.

It's terrible.

It plays on the suicide rate.

My goal was that these people who are in this toxic masculinity see me doing this Charlie Chaplin number, that they make fun of the character by saying 'he's an idiot', before surprising himself to be seduced, to cry abundantly, " Jim Cummings explained at a press conference Thursday.

It is the favorite film of the critics and the public that has been rewarded by the jury presided over by the Mexican Guillermo del Toro. The 75th edition of the Venice Film Festival awarded its Golden Lion to Roma, the beautiful film by Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron, on Saturday (September 8th), during its closing ceremony. This moving film in black and white retraces scenes of life of a family of the Mexican middle class in the 70s.

He is inspired by the life of the director who soberly thanked the jury: "Today is the birthday of Liba, the woman who inspired the role of Cleo [the heroine of the film], it will be a gift of birthday, " said Alfonso Cuaron receiving his award for this film from his childhood memories. "This award is a testament to my love for you Liba, and for my country," added the filmmaker who received an Oscar in 2013 for his epic in space Gravity.

And it is also the triumph of Netflix that all critics have underlined. A first for Netflix, which distributes the feature film. Thus is revived the debate on the role of SVOD actors in contemporary cinema.

Indeed, the American streaming platform had never obtained the highest award from one of the three major European film festivals (Cannes, Venice and Berlin), since in Europe selected films must respect a mandatory three-year time limit between theatrical release and broadcast on a video platform.

This time Netflix took a revenge all the more visible as two of the films awarded in Venice this year are distributed by the US platform: the award for the screenplay was awarded to the western of Joel and Ethan Coen, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs . Another Netflix production (with A 22 July, by Paul Greengrass) in competition this year.

Last April, former Cannes Film Festival President Gilles Jacob warned: "Cannes can not deprive itself of this kind of films".

But these films-or TV movies? - will only be accessible to subscribers and will not be released in cinemas in France.

A recorder in the penis, Rolex en toc ... "Black Venus" intrigues us, this South Korean spy who met Kim Jong-il.

Before meeting former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, "Black Venus" , a spy from the South, was asked to be nice. But what the North Koreans did not know was that he had a miniature recorder hidden in the penis.

Today is a book and a movie that tell its story. A lighting in a new light of the troubled links between the two Koreas.

Few spies have succeeded as Park Chae-seo to reach the highest spheres of an enemy state. He did it in the 1990s: he pretended to be a retired South Korean army officer, a businessman who was shooting commercials in picturesque northern locations.

This story fascinates the crowds in a relaxing setting on the divided peninsula, The spy gone to the North has become a bestseller. The film hits the box office, with five million viewers in three weeks, or 10% of the South Korean population. "It was extremely stressful to be a spy," says Park Chae-seo, 64. "I risk being unmasked at the slightest mistake, like a stupid slip . "

He, unlike the North Korean spies sent to the South, had not received any pills to commit suicide in case of capture: "We were trained to commit suicide with our bare hands" thanks to "certain critical points of the body" , he said.

His career is not trivial and rich in twists and turns

"Black Venus" began in military intelligence in 1990, investigating Pyongyang's fledgling nuclear program. He is going to befriend a Chinese nuclear physicist of Korean origin who, against a million dollars, will reveal that the North has two low-power nuclear weapons.

In 1995, he became involved in the intelligence services, then called the National Security Planning Agency (APSN). It takes its code name. Stationed in Beijing as an employee of a South Korean company importing goods for North Korean tax-exempt goods, he established a network of North Korean contacts.

Bribes also allow him to get closer to the regime's executives. He thus provides the boss of North Korean spying visiting Beijing fake Rolex. He said he broke through by facilitating the release of Jang Song Thaek's nephew - the influential uncle of current leader Kim Jong-un - by helping to repay his $ 160,000 debt to Chinese traders.

The family of Jang Song Thaek (finally executed in 2013 for treason) invites him to Pyongyang as a token of gratitude. Park Chae-seo's advertising agency signs a four-million-dollar deal with a North Korean tourism agency to film spots at Mount Paektu, the spiritual cradle of North Korea, or Mount Kumgang.

The North, victim of the collapse of the USSR in 1991 which was its main financier, desperately needs money, so it's Black Venus who will help members of the Kim family to sell old pieces of celadon porcelain to rich South Koreans. He said he had visited a cache containing hundreds of other ceramics with a South Korean expert who had valued over a billion dollars.

"North wind"

In 1997, after several trips to the North, he was taken to the Paekhwawon Guest House for a 30-minute meeting with the leader himself. He has a tape recorder hidden in the urethra. The North Korean leader, accompanied by a senior intelligence officer, does not take the trouble to shake hands with his visitor. "His voice was a bit hoarse," recalls Park Chae-seo.

The interview focuses on the sale of porcelain. "I was rather relieved because it meant I had won the trust of the North," he says. The number one is also very interested in the South Korean presidential election, adds Park Chae-seo.

As everyone knows, South Korea's electoral years often give rise to cross-border military crises, which allows conservatives to collect votes from undecided voters, a phenomenon known as the "North Wind" . Less than three weeks before the 1987 presidential election, North Korean agents had detonated a Korean Air flight over the Andaman Sea, killing 115 people. ..Beautiful methods to achieve his goals!

In the run-up to the 1997 presidential election, North Korean officials told Park Chae-seo that three supporters of conservative candidate Lee Hoi-chang had asked them to organize an armed attack. In a hotel room in Beijing, says Park Chae-seo, "I saw first-hand the North Koreans counting bundles of tickets from South Koreans" in exchange for such an attack. "There were 36 bundles, each containing $ 100,000 , " or $ 3.6 million.

"I was kept in isolation for six years"

The spy informs about the plot of his bosses at the APSN as well as the entourage of the opposition candidate Kim Dae-jung, who makes the case public ....

But its cover shattered, Park Chae-seo Park is sacked by the intelligence services and goes back to China, spending most of his time on golf.

After the return of the Conservatives to power and the appointment of a new boss of espionage, Park Chae-seo Park is arrested in Seoul in 2010 and sentenced for providing classified information in the North. He claims to have provided innocuous information to gain the trust of North Koreans. "I was kept in solitary confinement for six years," he accuses, speaking of political reprisals.

But if the geopolitical wind turned again and he was still on the wrong side of the barrier, Park Chae-seo Park said he could count on an assurance he had not had time to use in 2010 : recording his talks with Kim Jong-il, Jang Song Thaek and other North Korean officials. They are in a safe place " somewhere in a foreign country". !!!

The former "Black Venus" is convinced that sanctions imposed on Pyongyang for its nuclear program will not achieve their goal. " Leaders can only rely on nuclear weapons for their survival because their conventional weapons are only good at waste."

Sandy and Danny's performers attended a screening of the musical at Berverly Hills at the invitation of the Academy of Oscars.

"We go together," they sang in 1978.

Forty years later, Grease's two stars, Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta, Sandy and Danny's directors attended the screening of the film on Wednesday, August 15, which has become a cult favorite since it was released in 1978.

The mythical couple posed in front of the photographers, performing a few dance steps before attending a Beverly Hills tribute screening:

they really have not lost anything of their hips!

The Academy of Arts and Sciences of the cinema, on the initiative of this birthday party, had also invited several other interpreters: Didi Conn, player of Frenchie; Barry Pearl, who represented Doody, a member of T-Birds; and director Randal Kleiser.

And to evoke their first meeting:

"When I had the privilege of joining the cast, I said, 'There is no other person in the universe than Olivia Newton-John to play Sandy. You have to choose it, "he told reporters.

The latter then replied that she had at first doubts about his participation in the film.

"And then they sent John to meet me and I could not tell him no, did I?

This beautiful man was walking towards me, his blue eyes were shining and he was so sweet, " recalls the 69-year-old actress

"When I think we are paying homage today to our film and it has found its place in the history of cinema ... All this is unimaginable , said John Travolta. I think it's a really prestigious moment. "

In this 1978 film, 69-year-old Olivia Newton-John played a girl in all respects named Sandy, facing the bad boy Danny, played by 64-year-old John Travolta.

Grease is the adaptation of a Broadway musical with a hit-cum-soundtrack, such as Summer Nights and Hopelessly Devoted to You.

Next week (22 August), the film "Lukas" will be released in cinemas, in which the Belgian actor is setting up a former bodyguard who chases small security jobs in nightclubs to raise his 8-year-old daughter. Then, he finds himself forced to collaborate with the police to infiltrate the organization of a dangerous Flemish gang leader of counterfeiters.

In Lukas, "JCVD" will embody a tough anti-hero.

"Lukas" is a polar for "breaking the Hollywood silhouette" of Jean-Claude Van Damme. Directed by Julien Leclercq, "Lukas " unveils an unprecedented Jean-Claude Van Damme, far removed from all the clichés that can be expected from a film he plays.

After a rather hollow period when Jean-Claude did not show himself too much on the movie sets, he is back for a made-to-measure role: that of the ace of the dégomme, known for his catch of martial arts and his crazy thoughts.

A deconstruction of the star is the bias of this film Julien Leclercq and his star Jean-Claude Van Damme.

A rough polar that plays with our expectations: no big gap, no kick back but a more touching facet of the comedian. Jean-Claude Van Damme delivers a service as brutal as sensitive as a father under the direction of Julien Leclercq. The filmmaker known for his films that do not make in the lace (Braqueurs, L'Assaut) could well offer one of the best roles in the career of Jean-Claude Van Damme.

This time, the Belgian actor returns to a thriller-like thriller in Lukas. JCVD is the film's protagonist, a former bodyguard who has been working as a security guard in nightclubs to raise his eight-year-old daughter. After a dirty mess, Lukas finds himself obliged to collaborate with the police and integrate a Flemish gang not very friendly counterfeiters.

A mission far from secure and high voltage in short whose trailer has just been unveiled.

The first images of Lukas strike indeed strong since the fifth feature film Julien Leclercq (The Assault, Braqueurs ...) meets an explosive cast. Headlining: Jean-Claude Van Damme. We no longer present Kaaris and Sami Bouajila who share the screen at his side, in an action film, between thriller and muscular thriller.

In these first images of the film, Jean-Claude Van Damme seems to play a man worn out by life. Shaved head, closed face, hard pout, he evolves in dark environments. Between blue and red neons, we see the infiltrated through grueling hangars. Bring her daughter at arm's length, face two petty cops in a park. The blows are rough, filmed closely, almost in the dark.

At 57, The Muscles from Brussels shows us that he still has rabies. JCVD has not had a movie released in France since Expendables 2 in 2012 (with the exception of Kung Fu Panda 3 where it has doubled a character).

The Belgian comedian shares the poster with Sami Bouajila and rapper Kaaris. Lukas comes out on our screens this Wednesday, August 22nd.

Scarlett Johansson is the highest paid actress in the world

The Black Widow of the saga Avengers dominates the Forbes ranking of actresses established on the 2017-2018 season for 33 years, the New Yorker won $ 40 million in twelve months.

With a pre-tax profit of $ 40.5 million (approximately 35.6 million euros) between June 1, 2017 and June 1, 2018, Black Widow's interpreter outperforms Angelina Jolie, second with $ 28 million earned and Jennifer Aniston third with $ 19.5 million.

The actress has quadrupled her earnings year-over-year thanks to her role in Avengers - Infinity War, the last episode of the Marvel-Walt Disney series.

She will again enter the skin of this character Black Widow (the Black Widow) in a new opus of the franchise, indoors in 2019.

And if the production is still to be confirmed, Marvel has planned to make a film entirely dedicated to this Russian spy with fatal talents in the early 2020s.

Forbes' revenue estimates take into account the stamps of the actresses but also their advertising contracts.

Behind Scarlett Johansson come Angelina Jolie ($ 28 million) and Jennifer Aniston ($ 19.5 million).

Next are Jennifer Lawrence (18 million), Reese Witherspoon (16.5 million), Mila Kunis, Cate Blanchett, Melissa McCarthy and Gal Gadot. Emma Stone, Oscar winner for her role in the musical La La., Who was at the top of the previous Forbes ranking, is out of the Top 10.

Only two actresses this year surpass the $ 20 million revenue mark, up from three last year and four in 2016.

This is due to the lack of female roles in blockbusters.

According to a study from the University of Southern California cited by Forbes, women represent only 28.7% of the roles that character portrays on screen in American films, which explains in part pay differences with their male counterparts.

We are eagerly awaiting the ranking of the highest paid actors that will be released next week.

In the previous edition, Mark Wahlberg came in first with $ 68 million in revenue .

Finally, Laura Smet seems to be coming out of her painful mourning, which is all the more painful because the legacy of her father Johnny Hallyday is problematic and has divided the tribe.

It is in her profession of actress that she took refuge to forget as much as possible:

she announces that her short film will be presented in August at the Angoulême Festival.

Laura is making great strides in her career despite the pain that has not faded since her father's terrible death last December and the rifts in her clan that occurred just after this sad event.

It was on his Instagram account that she expressed to her subscribers that her short film "Thomas" will be presented at the Angoulême Festival on August 22nd.

"Thank you very much," she tweeted in caption, glad that her work was so appreciated.

Internet users have not failed to congratulate the daughter of Johnny Hallyday and Nathalie Baye.

"Congratulations and congratulations to you.

You can be proud of yourself and your work, "

"Too happy for you, pretty Laura ...

You can be proud of yourself ...

Respect for your work. Your mom @ nathaliebaye.officiel will present your realization, as at the festival in Japan?

We do not misunderstand:

it is not a biopic of the Franco-German actress but the reconstitution of fleeting moments during a long interview of the Stern with the diva.

Yes Romy is at the heart of a disturbing reenactment at a time when she is in a state of depression. Just a year before his death.

She goes to Quiberon to follow a cure to restore her health. At 42, the icon of the seventh art is represented in a period of ill-being of his life: divorce proceedings, money difficulties and alcohol.

A longtime friend joins her and tries to protect her from the journalist, "these vultures", intrusive in search of sensationalism.

But in vain the actress of Caesar and Rosalie with his alcoholic penchant indulges himself, sometimes stripped himself with shamelessness, alternately dejected and exalted, fragile and imperious, in this unequal face-to-face.

A closed black-and-white dome that refers to Robert Lebeck's photographs, where the friend and the photographer intervene in their desire to protect the star of the Pool.

The interpretation of the role by the actress Marie Bäumer comes out sublimated by its physical resemblance, its mimicry, its naturalness.

The resemblance is striking.

This role earned him in April the equivalent of the German Caesar, a Lola of the best actress.

Release date 13 June 2018 (1h 55min) With Marie Bäumer, Birgit Minichmayr, Charly Hübner

It is the Japanese filmmaker received the Palme d'Or with his film "A family affair".

This The film openly criticizes the government's social and cultural policy, so much so that the reward has received little recognition from the Empire of the Rising Sun.

The director has shot many heartbreaking family chronicles where he castigates the Abe government.

"Instead of helping the poor, the government makes losers, and poverty is treated as a problem of personal responsibility , " he said recently about the film in the South Korean newspaper Chuo Nippo.

And the award-winning film, Manbiki kazoku (literally, the shoplifting family), inspired by a news item, denounces the harmful effects of the division of Japanese society.

"The film tells the story of a family clan with opaque links, which stains in stores. This tribe, one evening, collects a maltreated little girl and improvises as a stepfamily.

Six of his ten films have already been selected at Cannes, A family affair included.

In 2004, the actor Yûya Yagira, who played in his feature film Nobody Knows, was awarded the Best Actor Award.

In 2013, Hirokazu Kore-eda won the Jury Prize for Tel père, comme fils. Already rewarded twice, this time it is the ultimate reward that goes to this ardent defender of a Japanese auteur cinema.

Like her compatriot Naomi Kawase, Kore-eda's independent film industry is struggling to find a place in Japan in an advertising-captive environment favoring grants for films promoting Japan.

Kore-eda had, among other things, criticized the fact that Mr. Abe came to inaugurate the Tokyo Film Festival, with, according to him, ulterior motives.

"Unfortunately, the Tokyo Film Festival is a selling point for Japanese films. It's exactly like the Olympics, a tool at the service of national politics. This is not for the benefit of sport or cinema, but first for the benefit of Japan, " he regretted in an interview granted in September 2016 to Forbes Japan magazine

Yet the Japanese filmmaker does not lose hope. A family affair is the first Japanese Palme d'or since Shohei Imamura's L'Anguille in 1997.

" Every time I come here, I'm invited to the Cannes Film Festival, I think it's really a place where you get a lot of courage, " said Hirokazu Kore-Eda, receiving his award. " I also feel hope. The hope, perhaps, that thanks to the cinema, the people who usually clash, the worlds, the countries that are fighting each other, can come together, " he continued.

Then he wanted to share his prize with "with the two directors who could not be present here in Cannes," the Iranian Jafar Panahi and the Russian Kirill Serebrennikov, both banned from traveling abroad.

Vincent Lacoste is beautiful in this gay romance of the 90s presented by Christophe Honoré twelve years after "Les chansons d'amour".

Certainly in this autofiction we talk a lot about sex but the director does in the modesty and delicacy of feelings as always.

In this film full of vitality and lightness Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), a student of Rennes (like the director before him) dreams of going to the capital to make cinema.

Chance will make him meet Jacques (Pierre Deladongchamps) a playwright suffering from AIDS.

A love story will begin while the days of James are numbered. They will love and run fast.

Although the film evokes AIDS of the 90s, the parallel with "120 beats per minute" by Robin Campillo, does not necessarily please the filmmaker.

"They seem to be alike, but in reality they are opposed," he said at the press conference.

"What annoys me is that we try to bring them together simply because there is homosexuality in the air. Why not connect "Pleasure, love and run fast to Mektoub my Love" ?

What Christophe Honoré claims is the personal side of his film where he wanted to rediscover an emotion peculiar to his youth and pay tribute to a generation of artists who died before the age of 40 by illness. An autofiction:

He admits to having put a lot of him in the role of the homosexual father played by Pierre Deladongchamps and in that of the young provincial student played by Vincent Lacoste.

"It's been a while since I spotted it and wanted to invite it in one of my movies. I remember this sentence of Françoise Sagan: by dint of parading one ends up having the soul parser. I think Vincent has the soul of a paradise ... " he says of Vincent Lacoste.

"It's simple. I am an actor and very fan of Christophe Honoré's films. So when one is lucky to receive such a proposal from such a filmmaker, one does not hesitate.

Remember that the young comedian just came into the world in 1993.

An international film - Franco-Hispano-Italian co-production - signed by an Oscar-winning director, Iranian Asghar Farhadi, with two well-known stars on both sides of the Atlantic, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem fulfills the film's contract. opening.

Everybody Knows was chosen to open the 71st Cane Festival, competing for the gold medal.

Screened Tuesday night on the Croisette and released Wednesday in all the rooms, this film wants to be a "psychological thriller"

Laura (Penélope Cruz) arrives from Buenos Aires, she is back in her native village in Spain.

With her two children, her husband could not come, he has too much work, she says.

She finds her former boyfriend, Paco (Javier Bardem), who was already the lover of Penélope Cruz ...

In a sequence from the beginning, a gloved hand flips through clippings devoted to a sordid news item ...

Here is the masterful prologue, which instills mystery, latent anxiety even as the heroes of Everybody knows prepare to party.

Laura (Penélope Cruz) returns to her native village in Spain for her sister's wedding.

Even if the following is not the most original with the disappearance of a girl of the family,

The film is about an extended family and their loved ones confronted with the kidnapping of Laura's missing daughter during a wedding party.

The confrontation of a woman (Penelope Cruz) married to another (the Argentinean Ricardo Darin) and her former lover (Javier Bardem), makes the corpses of the cupboards fall into a family environment that is both protective and dangerous. The whole range of feelings will arise: suspicions, love jealousies, resentment, rivalries, betrayals, riddles, cries and tears, poorly guarded secrets, manipulations.

Despite the dramas, the characters are less the characters of a filmmaker than the puppets of a theater director. But the film was rather well received.

It will be a climb dedicated to women of cinema, a hundred," said Thierry Frémaux, coach of the Cannes Film Festival during a press conference, without giving any name of the actresses who will participate.

The Cannes Film Festival, whose 71st edition begins Tuesday, will host Saturday a rise of 100% female markets since the Weinstein scandal, said Monday its delegate general Thierry Frémaux

What place is given to women in this Cannes edition after #metoo?

The opportunity to rebut the idea that Cate Blanchett was chosen as jury president only because she would be a woman:

"She is first president because she is a great actress" , he insisted , citing the first two women presidents of the Cannes jury, Olivia de Havilland and Sofia Loren.

Note that only three women among the 21 directors in competition, while they are five out of nine on the jury.

For the Iranian Jafar Panahi and the Russian Kirill Serebrennikov, two directors in the running for the Palme d'Or who are banned from traveling by their countries, the general delegate of the festival is hardly misled: "I'm not very optimistic (about their presence in Cannes, ed), yet the irony is that these two films are not political films, they are artists' films, "he said.

Dane Lars von Trier returns to the official selection, out of competition, after his remarks on his "sympathy" for Nazism in 2011

The theme of selfies will be banned this year on the red carpet. "We do not come to Cannes to see each other, but to see," he said while in Berlin, Venice, or the Oscars, the public does not have access to the red carpet.

See you soon!

At this tense moment of relations between Russia and the West, we find ourselves in a form of cinematographic art a few years later after the Tintin comic in the land of the Soviets.

Dominika is a young ballerina, whose career is broken net after a fall of his partner on his shin during a performance with Bolshoi. Farewell to the fate of ballerina.

Having to make a living to look after her sick mother, she was recruited against her will by the Russian secret services at the sparrows school.

Engaged in manipulation and seduction, Dominika quickly became one of the best agents of the service.

The director of Sparrows Charlotte Rampling has the full range of cruelty and evil to train young spies.

Francis Lawrence finds his Hunger Game actress Jennifer Lawrence, who carries the backbone of this spy film mixing violence and eroticism.

This mixture of eroticism, violence and perversity of the film exerts a fascination on the viewer that takes him more than two hours in a hell where Dominika Egorova struggles, heroine in spite of herself.

Fascination by the performance and the plastic of Jennifer Lawrence.

A very emotional and very physical role.

A scenario borrowed from the author of spy novels (and former CIA agent) Jason Matthews:

Reversal of situations, unveiling, pieces of bravery, staging of suffering, dot the slippery path of the one who became the best secret agent of the SVR, the external intelligence service that succeeded the KGB's first leadership.

Red sparrow , banned in France under 12 years with warning, is full of violent scenes and tortures sparing Jennifer Lawrence's nude scenes.

We are in a spy movie that has many betrayals as well as twisted shots and some good words.

The parliamentary attaché of a US senator at the embassy confesses to the Russian head of the Budapest office (Robert is interested rather than Redford):

"I never understood how Russian women can be so beautiful and so ugly men" .

From this hell she emerges as well as she can manage with difficulty to preserve her physical and moral integrity in the face of imperialism that wants to make her a puppet in his service.

But Dominika has no illusions about the Cold War goals of his employers.

So when she is in charge of approaching an American spy and she finds him on the road she will have to indulge in an ultimate internal fight ...

The film is based on a five-star international cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Mathias Schonaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Jeremy Irons, Ciaran Hinds and Joely Richardson.Red sparrow: 2 hours and 21 minutes.

"It is with great sadness that I learn of the death of the great filmmaker Milos Forman ," wrote British director Edgar Wright. His filmography was phenomenal and reflected the spirit of revolt and human nature. "

The Czech-American filmmaker Milos Forman, who won two Oscars for Best Director, died Saturday at the age of 86. He spent most of his career in Hollywood after fleeing his country before the repression of the Prague Spring in 1968. "He died peacefully, surrounded by his family and loved ones," said his wife Martina. Czech press agency CTK.

The leading author of a "New Wave", a freedom-bearer and a contender, he had to flee his country after the repression of the 1968 Prague Spring in Hollywood, where he obtained consecration. A naturalized American in 1977, he has twice won the Academy Award for Best Director for Flying Over a Cuckoo's Nest (1976) and Amadeus (1985). His singular work has focused on unsubdued characters in abeyance with all forms of oppression.

With the deportation and death of his parents, Czech resistance against the Nazi occupier, in concentration camps Buchenwald and Auschwitz could it be otherwise? Very quickly orphan, he attended a boarding school for the elite of communist youth in Podebrady near Prague. Then he meets Vaclav Havel, future playwright, dissident and president. He continued his studies at the Prague Film School FAMU and began to break with communist productions thanks to a relative thaw in the 1960s.

They are a rising generation aspiring to creative freedom and rebellion against communism: Jiri Menzel (Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1968 for closely watched Trains ), Ivan Passer and Vera Chytilova are his traveling companions.

His films The Competition (1963), The Ace of Spades (1964), The Loves of a Blonde (1965) and Fire, Firefighters! (1967), are part of the New Czechoslovakian wave that characterizes the frankness of expression, freedom against any form of oppression.

But social satire At the fire, firefighters! it earned him communist authorities the ire and thunderbolts, so that French filmmakers François Truffaut and Claude Berri buy the rights of the film to get Milos Forman out of this misstep that makes him risk prison. The synopsis? In a village in Czechoslovakia, the annual firefighters' ball is being prepared with a raffle and the election of Miss Firemen.

But the candidates are not numerous and the prices of the raffle are stolen as and when. Then everything turns to fiasco! Just before the occupation of Czechoslovakia by the Warsaw Pact forces in 1968 ending the "Spring of Prague" period , Milos Forman exiled himself, first to France and then to the United States. The international consecration comes very quickly with Flight over a nest of cuckoo (1975), quasi-documentary film on psychiatric hospitals with Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher, then the cinematographic version of the famous musical Hair (1979) and Ragtime in 1981.

Adapted from Ken Kesey's 1962 American novel, Shakespeare's One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest , translated to Stock Publishing under the title The Fog Machine , Flight over a Cuckoo's Nest is shot in a real psychiatric facility in Oregon and with real patients. RP McMurphy, a supposed rapist, played by Jack Nicholson, was interned to escape prison. Faced with the distress of patients, he wants to give them a taste for life by challenging the various authorities of the hospital. But the implacable repressive machine falls on this unsubdued individual to the point of alienation. Very close to the heavy atmosphere of Kafka Castle ... An unforgettable character. As well as the obnoxious chief nurse Mildred Ratched (Louise Fletcher).

This way of denouncing the coercive methods practiced in psychiatric institutions allows Milos Forman to give an allegory of the systems of repression of communist dictatorships in the countries of the East. The film gets five Oscars in 1976.

Amadeus, another masterpiece, describes the life of Mozart (Tom Hulce) and his confrontational relationship with Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham), who vie for the title of greatest composer of the century at the Vienna court of late 18th century. The film wins no less than eight Oscars as well as forty awards!

"He was a cinematographer - no one was better than him at capturing little inescapable moments of human behavior," tweeted scriptwriter Larry Karaszewski, who worked twice with Milos Forman.

The main films of the director Milos Forman:

- 1963: Competition

- 1964: Ace of Spades (Grand Prix, Locarno)

- 1965: The Loves of a Blonde (Grand Prix of the French Film Academy)

- 1967: Fire firefighters!

- 1971: Taking Off

- 1975: Flight over a cuckoo's nest »(5 Oscars, including Best Film and Best Director)

- 1979: Hair

- 1981: Ragtime

- 1984: Amadeus (Oscar for Best Director)

- 1989: Valmont

- 1996: Larry Flynt (Golden Bear Best Film)

- 1999: Man on the moon (Silver Bear of the Best Direction, Berlin 2000)

- 2006: Ghosts of Goya

The 90th Oscars ceremony closes with a fair and rather awaited list of awards in the line of previous ceremonies. No bad envelope this time.

To ward off the spell, everything has been verified. "The Shape of the Water", fantasy romance of the Mexican Guillermo del Toro, triumphed Sunday at the Oscars, at the end of an evening he was the favorite, doubling the another pretender to the coveted statuette, "3 Billboards, The Panels of Vengeance".

The romance between a mute housekeeper and an aquatic monster becomes the first feature-length science-fiction film to land the highest distinction.

The Shape of Water is the "masterpiece so far" of the 54-year-old Mexican because "until then there was a trait of Guillermo's character in his films, humor," says Leonardo Garcia- Tsao, film critic and old friend of the filmmaker.

This film is therefore a winner with four statuettes, best film, best director, best music for the French Alexandre Desplat and best decorations.


The Frenchman Alexandre Desplat joins the club of professionals who have been won twice, confirming his place alongside legendary French musicians like Georges Delerue, Maurice Jarre and Michel Legrand.

Behind, Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk" has won three technical Oscars, "Call Me By Your Name" and "Get Out" were respectively awarded the Oscar for the adapted scenario and the original script.

The special effects and photography of "Blade Runner 2049" were crowned, as well as the costumes of "Phantom Thread".

"Three Billboards - The Panels of Vengeance" won two Oscars - best actress for Frances McDormand, her second after "Fargo" in 1997 and best supporting actor for Sam Rockwell.

Coco, film immersed in the Mexican culture of Pixar Studios (Disney), won the Oscar for best animated film. Coco tells the story of a little boy chasing his dreams against the background of the Day of the Dead in Mexico.

This is the sixth win in a row for the Disney group, which has bought in 2006 Pixar, winner on three occasions in this series with Coco, Vice Versa and Rebelle.

It was a risky gamble at a time when Donald Trump rose to the presidency of the United States by using anti-Mexican rhetoric during his election campaign.

Gary Oldman wins the Best Actor Oscar for The Dark Hours, who told his 99-year-old mom:

"Put the kettle on the gas, prepare the tea, I'm coming with Oscar" .

This is his first statuette when he was given a favorite after winning, among others, at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

If the 90th Oscars ceremony was marked as a whole by a big one, the show was rather to look for the side of Jimmy Kimmel, with his biting monologue, perfect for the presentation, and the trio of ambassadors of Time's up.

His speech was of course enamelled with some jubilant pearls :

"Oscar is the most loved and respected man in Hollywood.

And there is a very good reason for that. Look at the.

He keeps his hands where you can see them.

Never say a rude word and above all, he has no penis. "

"Thanks to Guillermo (del Toro), we will always remember this year as the year when men so badly assured that women started going out with fish."

Jimmy Kimmel had promised: the anti-harassment movement would have the right to its platform.

It was a trio of shock that took the floor: Salma Hayek, Annabella Sciorra, Ashley Judd. Three actresses, among the first to denounce the abuses of Harvey Weintein.

They called for going further in "gender equality, in the representation of diversities, in inclusion, in intersectionality".

"Since this fall, with the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, everyone has earned the right to express themselves, and forever. Not only in Hollywood, but in all aspects of life, " said Mira Sorvino.

Then, they launched a video praising filmmakers and films highlighting women and minorities.

Get out and Lady Bird were in good position. Like Thelma and Louise, uillermo del Toro and Frances McDormand wake up the room

Simple presenters, Kumail Nanjiani and Lupita Nyong'o supported the "Dreamers" , those young people who arrived in the United States without paper and whom Donald Trump wanted to expel.

"Dreams are the foundation of Hollywood and America," they said.

In recovering his Oscar for best director, Guillermo del Toro recalled in the same vein that he "was an immigrant, like so many others. Like his Mexican friends and colleagues Alfonso Cuaron and Alejandro Innaritu .

And to add: "I am a citizen of the world. The place I love most is the planet Earth.

This award is for all young directors.

Open their door.

Young, winning an Oscar seemed to me above my possibilities.

Tell true stories with science fiction. "

Hollywood had to expiate her sins ..

And Harvey Weinstein did not come on stage this year and for good reason ...

On Hollywood Boulevard, passersby could contemplate a statue of Harvey Weinstein by street artists Plastic Jesus and Joshua "Ginger" Monroe:

we see the producer, gilded like an Oscar, sitting on his sofa holding in his right hand a statuette placed on his pelvis.

Adina Pintilie's touch me not' has been a scandal: critics are not used to the fact that the prizes go to a young filmmaker who is not cold-hearted.

Programmed in the last two days, this is the first feature-length film directed by the very young Romanian filmmaker Adina Pintilie.

It is a kind of intimate essay, straddling documentary and fiction, in which actors respond, with an unusual frankness, to questions about their sexuality.

The main character of the film follows a therapy to break a sexual trauma - never clarified in the film - and explore the unfathomable boundaries of carnal love.

To do this, the director starts from the body of a 50-year-old woman, the actress Laura Benson, and draws a deep reflection on the mechanisms that set in motion sexual desire. The spectator is alternately immersed in sadomasochistic scenes, scenes of bodies seized in full enjoyment, or even scenes where bodies are seen in raw nudity almost repugnant.

The film has divided.

Extremely daring cinema.

Aller voir de toute urgence cette comédie hilarante, un brin franchouillarde de cette tribu qui se retrouve après longtemps pour le remariage de leur père fantasque dans leur zoo familial.

Et le retour de Gaspard, celui qui a fui cette vie fantaisiste, va faire resurgir tout un passé enfoui , celui de l'enfance avec leur parents dont la mère adorée est morte dans des circonstances dramatiques, tuée par un tigre.

Il y a donc Gaspard (Félix Moati) celui qui s’est émancipé dès son adolescence et qui demande, moyennant finance, à une jeune fille inconnue Laura (Lætitia Dosch) rencontrée dans le train de l’accompagner au mariage de son père.

Puis son frère Virgil (convaincant Guillaume Gouix) qui a dû se résigner à rester pour faire « tourner la boutique » et sa sœur Coline (Christa Théret) vivant drapée dans une peau d’ours (telle la Suzie de "L’hôtel New-Hampshire " de John Irving) pour cacher sa beauté .

Ces retrouvailles vont leur permettre de se confronter et de régler leurs comptes au milieu des animaux, personnages à eux seuls.

Fantaisiste à souhait !!!

Et Max enfin, le patriarche coureur de jupons (Johan Heldenbergh) qui doit épouser celle qui partage sa vie: Peggy, vétéririnaire (Marina Foïs), la seule qui incarne réellement le principe de réalité...

Ce film se déroule sous nos yeux ébahis en trois chapitres" La petite amie imaginaire ", " L’homme d’une seule femme ", " La fille qui mangeait des racines ".

Cette comédie familiale a été tournée en partie dans le parc animalier du Reynou, dans le Limousin.

Les scènes filmées en intérieur révèlent les protagonistes et c'est Anthony Cordier, disciple de Catherine Breillat et Christine Pascal, qui a écrit le scénario d'où cette absence de pudibonderie (Coline aime un peu trop sensuellement son frère) qui nous entraîne bien loin de notre monde fadasse, si bien qu'on resterait bien encore un peu dans notre zoo !!!

«Nos conversations, cet automne, nous promettent qu'elle sera une Présidente engagée, une femme passionnée et une spectatrice généreuse.»

L'Australienne présidera le jury du 71e festival de Cannes, en mai . Elle devient la 12e femme à assumer cette fonction

Les organisateurs du festival de Cannes ont annoncé, jeudi 4 janvier, que Cate Blanchett sera à la tête du jury de la 71e édition, qui aura lieu du 8 au 19 mai.L'actrice australienne, couronnée de deux Oscars, est la douzième femme à se voir confier cette fonction, quatre ans après la réalisatrice néo-zélandaise Jane Campion.

«Je viens à Cannes depuis des années comme actrice, comme productrice, pour les soirées de gala et pour les séances en compétition, pour le Marché même. Mais je ne suis encore jamais venue pour le seul plaisir de profiter de la corne d'abondance de films qu'est ce grand festival», a réagi la star australienne dans un communiqué.

«Nous sommes très heureux d'accueillir une artiste rare et singulière dont le talent et les convictions irriguent les écrans de cinéma comme les scènes de théâtre. Nos conversations, cet automne, nous promettent qu'elle sera une Présidente engagée, une femme passionnée et une spectatrice généreuse», ont déclaré Pierre Lescure, Président du Festival de Cannes, et Thierry Frémaux, Délégué général.

Les organisateurs ne s'y sont d’ailleurs pas trompés.

Elle a obtenu de nombreuses récompenses et nominations (sept nominations aux Oscars et aux BAFTA, neuf aux Golden Globe, la Coupe Volpi de la meilleure actrice à la Mostra de Venise) pour des rôles très divers.

Elle a reçu l'Oscar du meilleur second rôle féminin en 2005 pour le rôle de Katharine Hepburn dans Aviator de Martin Scorsese. Après deux nominations pour ses interprétations d'Elisabeth I dans Elizabeth et Elizabeth : L'Âge d'or, elle a reçu l'Oscar de la meilleure actrice en 2014 grâce à sa prestation dans Blue Jasmine de Woody Allen.

Blanchett s'essaie à tous les genres et devient l'idole de nouveaux fans lorsqu'elle interprète la reine des Elfes Galadriel dans la trilogie du Seigneur des anneaux de Peter Jackson (2001, 2002 et 2003). La série de films détient le record de la plus grosse recette de tous les temps pour une trilogie !

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull de Steven Spielberg compte parmi un de ses navets remarqués comparaison faite avec Jurassic Park...

Mais ne doit-elle pas avant tout ce choix à son engagement féministe ?

Au fil de sa carrière, Cate Blanchett a dénoncé à de nombreuses reprises le sexisme de l'industrie du cinéma.

L'un des plus fervents combats de Cate Blanchett porte d'ailleurs sur les écarts salariaux considérables entre les actrices et les acteurs. "Le problème de l’égalité entre les sexes ne sera vraiment résolu que lorsque l’égalité salariale sera acquise. Ce qui n’est toujours pas le cas", déclarait-t-elle dans un entretien au Figaro, en novembre 2017.

Cate Blanchett a collaboré avec le producteur Harvey Weinstein sur les tournages des films Carol et Aviator, pour lequel elle a obtenu l'Oscar du meilleur second rôle féminin en 2005. ..A propos des scènes de sexe torrides entre Cate Blanchett et Rooney Mara pour leur film "Carol" le réalisateur Todd Haynes parle d'alchimie entre les deux actrices...

Elle a pourtant été l'une des premières célébrités à prendre ouvertement position contre le magnat d'Hollywood...

Ce choix de la présidence peut donc être interprété comme une volonté du festival de Cannes de soutenir le combat contre le harcèlement dans la profession, depuis que l'affaire Weinstein a ébranlé le 7e art l'automne dernier.

De la parole aux actes, la star australienne vient de lancer avec d'autres actrices célèbres, comme Natalie Portman et Meryl Streep, la fondation «Time's Up» (»C'est fini»). Ce projet disposera notamment d'un fonds destiné à financer un soutien légal pour les femmes et hommes victimes de harcèlement sexuel au travail. L'organisation a déjà recueilli plus de 13 des 15 millions de dollars.

Mais n'oublions pas que toute la planète Hollywood connaissait les promotions canapés pour les femmes comme pour les hommes. Une règle du jeu bien trop rodée.

Et qu'une grande dame du cinéma français Catherine Deneuve n'a pas mâché ses mots.

Adapté du roman autobiographique de Romain Gary, c’est l’histoire de l’amour fou d’une mère juive, Mina (Charlotte Gainsbourg), pour son fils Romain (Pierre Niney), qui poussera ce dernier à se surpasser, jusqu’à vivre mille vies (aviateur, journaliste, diplomate, etc…) et devenir un écrivain parmi les meilleurs.

Cette adaptation du classique de Romain Gary se déroule sur plus de trente ans se déployant en trois scènes de vie.

Les années à Varsovie dans la difficulté de vivre de l'enfant Romain sous l'emprise d'une mère étouffante et tourmentée.

Puis les années d'exil en France pour échapper aux conséquences de l'arrivée au pouvoir en Allemagne d'Hitler.

A Nice, où le jeune Gary tente de grandir auprès d'une mère extravagante et envahissante.

Et enfin la période d’émancipation partielle où pour poursuivre des études, Romain monte à Paris pour s’initier à l’amour, se lancer dans la carrière d’écrivain et s’enrôler comme aviateur dans la deuxième guerre mondiale.

Une adaptation ciné qui suit la chronologie précise de l'autobiographie éponyme, de l’enfance de Gary en Pologne à son engagement dans les Forces Aériennes Françaises Libres dans les années 40, en passant par son enracinement en France, à Nice.

Avec cette relation fusionnelle de Gary avec sa mère projetant ses rêves de gloire dans son unique enfant.

Eric Barbier ne se contente-t-il pas trop souvent d’illustrer le roman avec l’application de l’artisan ?

La reconstitution est précise (décors, costumes), la photo, délicate, les effets visuels efficaces comme l'impressionnante scène de bataille aérienne.

Formellement cependant le film est très beau et, que ce soit de la Pologne triste et enneigée des années 20 à la Côte d’Azur ensoleillée de l’Entre Deux-guerres, en passant par le sombre Londres des années 40…

Tout y respire l’authenticité. Sinon rien de très original dans ce biopic carré, d’un romanesque suranné : Charlotte Gainsbourg livre une prestation à l’ancienne loin du réalisme en vogue, trop prévisible qui a toujours tout joué en retrait, de l’intérieur.

On ne croit pas vraiment en Nina Kacew sur l’écran. Pierre Niney excelle dans son jeu de jeune premier tourmenté.

Rien de très excitant ...

Seul cet amour maternel inconditionnel de la mère, cette passion amoureuse, fusionnelle d’une mère pour son fils sont bien rendus et nous émeuvent , de temps à autre dans ces rapports excessifs et maladifs surtout lors des séparations. «  Elle « est » (alors) Mina, cette mère excessive, qui dévore son fils dans l’élan irrépressible de sa passion ».

La Promesse de l’aube, d’Eric Barbier (France, 2h10). Scénario : Eric Barbier et Marie Eynard, d’après Romain Gary. Avec Charlotte Gainsbourg, Pierre Niney, Catherine McCormack, Pawel Puchalski, Némo Schiffman.

C’est grâce à Sylvie Pialat que Xavier Beauvois se lance dans la lecture du roman éponyme d’Ernest Perochon, un instituteur des années 20 devenu écrivain (prix Goncourt en 1920 pour un autre livre, Nêne).

Les origines terriennes du réalisateur (né dans une petite ville du Pas-de-Calais) lui accordent la sensibilité nécessaire pour faire de ce récit aux combats intérieurs soigneusement tus une œuvre cinématographique lumineuse..

Collaborant avec les scénaristes Frédérique Moreau et Julie-Marie Maille, il débarrasse l’histoire initiale d’un trop grand nombre de malheurs ne se consacrant qu’à l’un de ses thèmes préférés, déjà développé en 2010 à travers l’inoubliable « Des hommes et des dieux », celui de la communauté attachée à sauvegarder coûte que coûte la survie d’un idéal.

Xavier Beauvois, signe là son septième long-métrage en vingt-cinq ans de carrière.Voir « Les Gardiennes », c’est s’embarquer, à tous égards, pour un voyage dans le passé.

L’auteur du roman adapté , Ernest Pérochon a représenté le monde de la vieille paysannerie française en 1915 dans la campagne française, tandis que les hommes meurent au front, que les femmes et les vieillards font tourner les fermes.

Hortense (Nathalie Baye) est de celle-ci, pour qui l’aide de sa fille Solange (Laura Smet) ne suffit pas, de sorte que la jeune Francine (Iris Bry), beauté rousse et terrienne, orpheline, est embauchée comme fille de ferme pour aider les deux femmes.

Leur vie est rythmée entre le dur labeur et le retour des hommes en permission.

Hortense, la doyenne, engage une jeune fille de l’assistance publique pour les seconder. Les Gardiennes est la chronique la dureté du travail et la vaillance de ces femmes face au carnage de la guerre.

C’est au gré des retours puis des absences des êtres chéris, au gré de l’arrivée d’une garnison de soldats américains, au gré d’un désir que la guerre n’a pas éteint, que quelque chose finit par se craqueler dans ce tableau.

C’est au prix d’une cruelle injustice dont la servante se trouve victime que se fait la préservation de la cellule et du patrimoine familiaux. Dans le scénario, la petite employée de ferme est bientôt accusée à tort de mauvais comportements, victime sacrifiée sur l’autel des convenances. L'amour qui naît entre elle et l'un des deux fils d'Hortense, Georges revenu en permission, va faire tomber Francine en disgrâce. Renvoyée, elle accouchera seule du fils de Georges et deviendra chanteuse de cabaret.

Cette complexité, dramaturgique et sociale à la fois, arrive toutefois un peu tard cependant dans ce film un peu compassé.

Car le cinéaste dédaignant l’injonction con­temporaine d’efficacité, avance dans les pas du Maurice Pialat de Van Gogh :la durée, les silences, l’expressivité des plans — paysages, natures mortes, fragments de corps —, indépendamment des dialogues. C’est alors l’occasion de nous repaître de la lumière de Caroline Champetier, fidèle complice du réalisateur, qui habillant le décor de tonalités à la chaleur digne de toiles de maître, contribue à installer une authentique émotion.

Le Jean-François Millet des Glaneuses, les Lumière de L’Entrée du train en gare de La Ciotat, le Jean Renoir d’une Partie de campagne, le Maurice Pialat de La Maison des bois. Superbe généalogie, qui déploie de la beauté à perte d’horizon.

Privilégiant un déroulement linéaire, (trop lent sans aucun doute), il prend le temps, au rythme des saisons et de l’évolution des récoltes, d’installer sa narration et de nous présenter ces personnages et leur mode de vie.

De nombreux travellings latéraux élégants naturalistes peignent tous les labeurs de la terre à travers les saisons. Le cinéaste livre une véritable mise en scène picturale composée comme une succession de tableaux aidée par la photographie de la chef opérateur caroline Champetier dont le format 35mm donne toute sa splendeur aux séquences extérieures.

La précision de la direction d’acteurs nous permet de nous attacher à une Nathalie Baye (Hortense), à peine reconnaissable et impressionnante sous les traits de cette femme d’un autre temps , à la finesse de jeu de Laura Smet. Mais l'on reste subjugué par le naturel de la novice Iris Bry. La meilleure part tient à un événement survenu par le hasard d'une rencontre et d'un casting. La directrice du casting, Karen Hottois, rencontre Iris Bry à la sortie d'une librairie. Elle l'arrête et lui demande si elle serait d'accord pour passer des essais. ..

Dans le rôle de l’orpheline, recrutée par les fermières, la débutante Iris Bry, mélange de modestie et d’éclat, devient, irrésistiblement, la véritable héroïne des" Gardiennes"

.Une affaire d’aura, puis de présence effective à l’écran.

Rejetée la jeune fille est choisie, élue par le cinéaste. Mieux, c’est à elle que revient d’incarner, en quelques scènes lumineuses, l’émancipation à venir des femmes et, à la fin de cette guerre, le retour impromptu de la joie.

D’où l’impression d’assister à la réécriture de l’histoire, à la réinvention du film en cours de route.

Durée 134 mn

Nationalité : France

Avec Nathalie Baye, Laura Smet Iris Bry, Olivier Rabourdin ...

«Les Derniers Jedi» sort ce mercredi 13 décembre dans les salles qui célèbre les 40 ans de la saga.

« Dans « Star Wars », le personnage dont je me sentais le plus proche était Luke Skywalker. Han Solo était cool. Moi, je n’étais pas cool », nous explique Rian Johnson lors de son passage à Paris.

Le mythe se renouvelle

Le film procède à un droit d'inventaire général de la saga.

Depuis sa création, Star Wars est un melting-pot de mythes du monde entier : le film de samouraïs japonais , la saga des chevaliers d’Arthur, des rappels de Valérian et Laureline...

Des influences pour n'en citer que quelques unes qui ont construit l'univers de Star Wars.

Les Derniers Jedi commence alors qu'au sein de la Résistance dirigée par la générale Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher, décédée après le tournage), Finn (John Boyega) et Poe (Oscar Isaac) doivent fuir un assaut du Premier Ordre que mène le Suprême leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) assisté du jeune Kylo Ren(Adam Driver), qui n’est autre que le fils, basculé du mauvais côté de la Force, du sympathique Han Solo et de la légendaire princesse Leia.

Tout ceci en l’absence de Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), frère de Leia et dernier chevalier jedi vivant recherché par tous les camps, et en présence de Rey (Daisy Ridley).

Mais le droit d'inventaire que les fans ne tarderont pas à faire apporte des changements parfois surprenants mais toujours bienvenus.

La décision de confier à Rian Johnson une nouvelle trilogie Star Wars, déconnecté de l'histoire principale, semble plus que judicieuse .

Cette volonté de renouvellement cinéphilique passe par un casting différent de jeunes acteurs tels qu’Oscar Isaac (Steven Soderbergh, Joel et Ethan Coen, J. C. Chandor), Adam Driver (Noah Baumbach, Jim Jarmusch, Steven Soderbergh) ou Laura Dern ­(David Lynch, Alexander Payne, Kelly Reichardt).

De belles inventions formelles également :

l'apparition et la disparition des vaisseaux à la vitesse de la lumière, la sublime dérive du corps de Carrie Fisher qui incarne sa dernière performance dans l’espace, la salle du trône noire , rouge et épurée.

Les planètes et les décors sont magnifiques , et dans les batailles spatiales on trouve de la nouveauté.

La scénarisation temporelle déstructurée de Johnson nous offre également un Star Wars au rythme assez inédit pour la saga avec un montage habile.

Le réalisateur a passé du temps dans la salle de montage découpant avec précision chaque sous-intrigue.

Tout amène dans ce spectacle à une apothéose guerrière permettant tout à la fois de clore l’épisode et de ménager la relance du suivant.

On passe le flambeau avec brio.

Terminons avec l’essayiste Martin Hugues pour qui la saga Star Wars représente non pas seulement un monument de la pop culture, mais bien un récit fondateur pour notre société actuelle.

Si tout n'est pas parfait dans cette société futuriste interplanétaire, son rapport à la diversité est un point qui serait un propos clé de Star Wars.

«C'est tout nouveau au cinéma: toutes les espèces vivantes, humanoïdes, animales ou même robotiques arrivent à vivre en parfaite harmonie, juge-t-il. L'égalité homme-femme est également respectée, ces dernières occupant souvent les plus hauts échelons.»

C'est le cas des princesses Padmé Amidala et Leia Organa, ou de Rey, personnage principal dans la nouvelle trilogie...

C'est à Paris qu'il arrive mais ce n'est pas si facile pour lui. Il lui arrive des péripéties.

Ce film est tendre, drôle, des vannes de Chabat, il apporte la magie de croire au merveilleux.

Alain Chabat a produit ce film.

Pour ressembler au Père Noël il a laissé pousser sa barbe et ses cheveux pendant un an et demi.

Il a troqué un costume vert à la place du rouge car en premier le Père Noël était vert, il est devenu rouge en 1931 quand la firme américaine Coca-Cola l'habille de la même couleur que sa fameuse bouteille rouge.

Ce film a nécessité 550 effets spéciaux d'un coût 5 millions d'euros de budget, il a été tourné soit à Paris ou à la Cité du Cinéma pour les intérieurs.

Puis il regroupe de merveilleux acteurs actrices comme Grégoire Ludig, David Marais,Golshifteh Farahani, Pio Marmai, David Marsais, Bruno Sanches, Audrey Tatou, la fille Alain Chabat n'oublions pas de préciser que Alain Chabat est le producteur.

A voir absolument pour se mettre dans l'ambiance. A l'avant- première les enfants demandaient à Alain Chabat s'il était le vrai papa Noël.

Cette semaine, l'événement cinéma c'est la sortie du nouveau film d'Albert Dupontel, « Au revoir là-haut », une adaptation libre du roman de Pierre Lemaitre, prix Goncourt en 2013.

Le film a été présenté en avant-première au festival du Film Francophone d'Angoulême.

Il raconte l'histoire de deux soldats qui ont survécu à la Première Guerre mondiale, deux rescapés des tranchées, l'un dessinateur de génie, l'autre modeste comptable .

Les deux hommes se retrouvent dans le Paris de l'après-guerre Et ensemble, ils décident monter une arnaque aux monuments aux morts dans la France des Années folles..

Ils vendent sur catalogue des tombeaux qu’ils ne fournissent jamais. Les affaires marchent, tant de gens réclament des sépultures à la hauteur des héros de cette boucherie…

Ils ne sont pas les seuls à se « débrouiller ».

L’infâme Pradelle, lui aussi (Laurent Lafitte), escroque les morts et plus salement encore:

l’ignoble ex-capitaine Pradelle, capitalise, avec l’aval de l’Etat, sur le commerce de cercueils vides censés contenir les dépouilles de soldats disparus rendues à leurs familles…

Du pur Dupontel, politiquement incorrect, grotesque, édifiant.

Dans cette France qui ne célèbre que ses défunts de la grande boucherie de 14-18, les survivants ne décollent pas de l’enfer des tranchées.

Pour sa première adaptation, Dupontel s'offre en ouverture une reconstitution des tranchées de la Grande Guerre qui prouve qu'il ne manque pas d'ampleur épique.

Ce segment devient l’une des peintures les plus impressionnantes qu’il nous ait été récemment permis de voir de la Première Guerre mondiale.

La scène de tranchées inaugurale, immersive et picturale au possible (on pense à la photo expressionniste de Janusz Kaminksi,), annonce la couleur et l’ambition raisonnablement démesurée de Dupontel, à la hauteur des enjeux

Des scènes terribles ont encore lieu. Au cours d'un dernier assaut, un condensé des passions, de la guerre, de la haine à la fraternité, Albert Maillard (Dupontel) est sauvé par Édouard Péricourt (Nahuel Perez Biscayart), qui, lui, est grièvement blessé.

L intrépide Albert et le grand bourgeois défiguré Edouard, sont liés à jamais,le second a perdu son visage en sauvant le premier.

Ce dernier a eu le bas de la mâchoire arrachée. Artiste issu de la grande bourgeoisie, il ne veut plus revoir sa famille, surtout son banquier de père (Niels Arestrup)

Et il va porter des masques plus ou moins excentriques qui cachent, son visage déjà dont toute la mâchoire a été arrachée par un éclat d'obus juste avant la Libération .

Mais il va faire tomber les masques que l'acteur principal Nahuel Pérez Biscayart interchange au gré de ses humeurs.

"Le fait de devoir jouer masqué et de créer une voix de gorge détruite, c'est alors aux corps de prendre le relais.

Donc on a cherché une gestualité de la Commedia dell'arte", explique le comédien,

Il démasque les profiteurs et c'est aux sans-visage, aux défigurés de la société qu'il offre les plus beaux masques.

Car Dupontel fait le portrait de marginaux auxquels la société refuse obstinément de faire une place.

"Au revoir là-haut" est avant tout un grand film feuilletonesque, qui fait revivre un Paris interlope où rôde le masque de la Mort.

Et, chose encore plus folle, il est capable de retrouver un cœur sous le masque de cynisme de Niels Arestrup, une des scènes les plus émouvantes de l'amour père-fils.

Comme à son habitude, l’une des forces du scénario de Dupontel est dû au également le soin apporté aux personnages secondaires et l’excellent casting sollicité à l’occasion.

Parmi les acteurs Laurent Laffite en figure maléfique, incarnation d’une classe dirigeante cynique Emilie Dequenne,$ parvenant à se libérer de son statut de potiche pour dénoncer  la cruauté intéressée au sein de la bourgeoisie.

Niels Arestrup est brillant dans la façon qu’il a de faire de son personnage, a priori lui aussi détestable, mais aussi le plus poignant de cette histoire. Philippe Uchan ainsi que Michel Vuillermoz, apportent au film sa part d’humour grinçant, dans laquelle on retrouve l’esprit du réalisateur.

Assurément le soin apporté à la direction artistique pour recréer cette période historiquene manque pas de qualité.

Qu’il s’agisse des uniformes portés par les poilus dans les tranchées ou des tenues élégantes de la bourgeoisie parisienne, chaque costume est une pure réussite.

De même pour les décors, et les masques signés Cécile Kretschmar qui sont une pure merveille d'excentricité.

Sur un plan formel, le côté pictural, en particulier le travail sur le grain et la colorimétrie donnent l’impression que les images, pourtant tournées en numérique, datent d’il y a un siècle.

Un film incontournable. Du grand cinéma!

Il est arrivé comme ses films dans les festivals: attendu et discret derrière ses lunettes noires, d'une sobre élégance que les années ne touchent pas. Wong Kar-wai a reçu à Lyon le prix Lumière 2017 ce vendredi pour l'ensemble de sa carrière. A 59 ans, il est le premier réalisateur chinois à se voir décerner ce prix, succédant à l'actrice Catherine Deneuve, récompensée en 2016. Un hommage d'amour au cinéaste qu'il a transformé en déclaration d'amour à sa femme Esther « Je voudrais dédier cet honneur qui m'est fait à mon épouse et ma muse, Esther. Il y a des éclats d'elle dans chacun des personnages féminins de mes films », a-t-il déclaré après l’avoir invité sur scène à ses côtés.. Le prix lui a été remis des mains d’Isabelle Adjani, sur ces belles paroles: "Je croyais que Wong Kar-wai était le cinéaste des amours impossibles. Il vient de nous prouver qu’il était le cinéaste des amours possibles".

On se souvient de la surprise éblouie qu'il a créée en apportant à Cannes en 2000 In the Mood for Love. « Un cadeau précieux offert par un seigneur lointain, à l'aube du millénaire. Il y avait des couloirs de songe, des nuits de pluie, des gestes de soie et d'ombre, des volutes de fumée, la beauté de Maggie Cheung. » Un vrai mélodrame, envoûtant ,In the Mood for Love a été le premier grand succès international de Wong Kar-wai, mais il était déjà connu des cinéphiles depuis As Tears Go By (1988), son premier long-métrage qui renouvelait la veine du film de gangsters.

Il a forgé une œuvre poétique à « l'imprévisible minutie créatrice »

Wong Kar-wai a commenté sa méthode de travail qu'il n'a de cesse "de remettre en question".

"J'ai horreur de l'écriture car c'est la phase la plus solitaire du processus créatif. J'ai tendance à la repousser le plus possible", a expliqué le réalisateur. Pour ce cinéaste reconnu comme l'un des plus fascinants stylistes du cinéma contemporain, le tournage constitue l'étape la plus "appréciable" de la réalisation d'un film car "c'est à ce moment-là qu'il prend vie".

Minutieux et souvent indécis - scénariste -, Wong Kar-wai a également évoqué son rapport aux acteurs :il aime d'abord "observer" pour imaginer "un espace d'expression" dans lequel ils peuvent ensuite "créer leur propre partition".

C'est ainsi que lors d'un tournage il a supprimé les dialogues destinés à son actrice fétiche, Maggie Cheung, estimant que "les mouvements de son corps traduisait parfaitement l'esprit de la scène".

"J'ai eu la chance de débuter au cours de l'âge d'or du cinéma hongkongais. La ville était devenue un studio à ciel ouvert. Il y flottait un air de liberté", se remémore-t-il.

Épaulé par le chef-opérateur Christopher Doyle, le cinéaste trouve progressivement son style et sa science du récit dans "Nos années sauvages" (1990). Suivent "Chungking Express" (1994), "Les cendres du temps" (1994) et "Les anges déchus" (1995).

"Happy Together" (1997, Prix de la mise en scène à Cannes) lui vaut la reconnaissance de la critique internationale et avec "In The Mood For Love" (2000), drame amoureux romanesque il accède définitivement à la notoriété.

Wong Kar-wai se fera ensuite plus rare, signant trois films en dix ans: "2046" (2003), "My Blueberry Nights" (2007) et "The Grandmaster" (2013).

La soirée fut un enchantement d'émotions convoquant la musique, de la déchirante interprétation de "Quizas, quizas, quizas", par Camélia Jordana à l’entrainant tube des Turtles "Happy together". Des montages vidéos ont retracé l’ensemble de l’oeuvre de Wong Kar-wai, de ses premiers à ses derniers films. Une oeuvre dont l’éloge sera faite à travers plusieurs discours.

"Wong Kar-wai a été le premier à filmer la ville de Hong-Kong, avec amour. Il est un poète, le cinéaste du souvenir", a déclaré, ému, le réalisateur Olivier Assayas, ami et admirateur de Wong Kar-wai. À son instar, les discours de Bertrand Tavernier et d’Isabelle Adjani ont souligné la poésie et la beauté de la filmographie du réalisateur chinois. "Wong Kar-wai fait sans cesse exploser le récit, il est allergique aux codes de la narration" a analysé Bertrand Tavernier. Des accélérés et des ralentis qui déstructurent le temps, une grande place laissée à l’improvisation, une ambiance mélancolique et sensuelle créée par des jeux de lumières et de couleurs… Autant de techniques propres au réalisateur que le prix Lumière 2017 a voulu récompenser.

Une soirée haute en émotions, en forme de déclaration d’amour au cinéaste et à son œuvre.

Inoubliable actrice aux plus de 100 films, Danielle Darrieux a incarné, avant Brigitte Bardot et Catherine Deneuve,un archétype de la beauté féminine.

L'actrice qui a tourné plus de 100 films et plus d'une trentaine de pièces de théâtre avait fêté ses 100 ans en mai dernier.

Dès 14 ans elle embrasse la carrière avec son premier film, Le Bal. de Wilhelm Thiele en 1931.De "Mayerling" (1935), son premier rôle tragique, à "Battements de coeur" (1939) d'Henri Decoin, son premier mari, elle est la coqueluche de l'avant-guerre. On l'appelait alors par ses initiales : DD.

Elle devient avant la guerre l'une des rares actrices françaises à mener une carrière internationale : en Allemagne, elle tourne "Château de rêve" (1932), en Tchécoslovaquie "Volga en flammes" (1934), en Hongrie "Katia" (1938).

Archétype de la beauté féminine elle reste l'inoubliable partenaire de Charles Boyer dans "La ronde" (1951), de Jean Gabin dans La Vérité sur Bébé Donge (1953) et Gérard Philipe dans Le Rouge et le Noir (1954).

Parallèlement, elle mène dès 1932 une carrière internationale qui la conduira à Hollywood et à Broadway , jouant entre autres dans "L'affaire Cicéron" de Joseph Mankiewicz, en 1952. Elle signe un contrat de 7 ans avec les studios Universal, tourne "La coqueluche de Paris" avec Douglas Fairbanks Jr, en 1938. Mais, très vite, DD s'ennuie et, au bout d'un an, casse son contrat pour rentrer en France.

Malmenée à la Libération pour avoir travaillé sous l'Occupation pour la Continental, dirigée par les Allemands, elle reprend néanmoins sa carrière et enchaîne les succès, dont , L'affaire Cicéron (Mankiewicz) ou Marie-Octobre (Duvivier).

Longtemps vouée aux rôles d'ingénue, elle démontre un talent de tragédienne dans les années 50, notamment dans "Ruy Blas" (Jean Cocteau), "La ronde" et surtout dans "Madame de...". Le chef d'oeuvre de Max Ophüls restera son film préféré.

En lui donnant un rôle dans Les Demoiselles de Rochefort (1967), Jacques Demy relance la comédienne qui, à 50 ans, continue d’incarner des personnages de femme élégante et drôle comme dans

En Haut des marches en 1983, Le Lieu du crimee en 1986.A un âge avancé, Danielle Darrieux a inspiré les jeunes réalisateurs comme François Ozon dans "Huit femmes" (2002).

"Elle n'est pas une vieille dame, estimait Catherine Deneuve, pour la troisième fois sa fille à l'écran. C'est la seule femme qui m'empêche d'avoir peur de vieillir."

À partir de 1969, Danielle Darrieux commence également une carrière au théâtre, interprétant tour à tour Feydeau, Guitry ou Marcel Aymé. En 2003, seule en scène, elle crée Oscar et la dame rose d'Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, qui lui vaut un Molière.

Trois mariages et un fils adoptif. Danielle Darrieux n'a pas oublié non plus de defrayer la chronique mondaine.

Dans « Numéro Une », la réalisatrice Tonie Marshall s’intéresse à l'ascension d'une femme à la tête d'une entreprise du CAC 40 pour mieux y dénoncer la misogynie d'un milieu bien décidé à conserver son pré carré de pouvoir. Et ne vous en déplaise « Numéro Une » n'est pas un film sur Isabelle Kocher ni même sur Anne Lauvergeon.

Emmanuelle Blachey, une ingénieure brillante et volontaire va être soutenue becs et ongles par tout un réseau de femmes d'influence - qui n'existe pas en réalité avec une telle puissance de feu- pour la conduire à la tête d'une grande entreprise du CAC 40. Femmes énergiques, jamais dans la revanche, elles illustrent avec force cette ségrégation hommes/femmes héréditaire inscrite dans le système.

L'ingénieure va accepter le challenge mais le chemin est long pour arriver à ses fins dans un milieu masculin où il est difficile de se faire une place. Tout est absolument vrai, voire même un peu en dessous de la réalité", confie la réalisatrice qui s'est plongée à corps perdu avec l'aide de la journaliste politique Raphaëlle Bacqué dans ces sphères impitoyables, fermées et disséquées avec un réalisme poignant.

Un long combat contre le "plafond de verre" ! Car "assumer le fait d'être une femme, c'est être féministe", confie Emmanuelle Devos qui a minutieusement travaillé son rôle grâce au travail de toute une équipe.

Emmanuelle Blachey a déjà bien réussi , lui reste donc à gravir le dernier échelon . La conquête s'annonce exaltante, mais c'est d'une véritable guerre qu'il va s'agir. Les obstacles d'ordre professionnel et intime vont aller crescendo pour cette mère de famille mariée et heureuse.

La réalisatrice Tonie Marshall plonge en effet son personnage dans les arcanes du pouvoir pas forcément glorieux pour cette difficile ascension à des postes à haute responsabilité au sein du grand patronat.

Si l’épopée d’Emmanuelle Blachey bascule parfois du côté de la démonstration plus que du récit à suspense, cette succession de scènes empilées sous forme d'arguments ne nous font à aucun moment douter de la dure réalité du monde des affaires ausculté avec beaucoup de réalisme et qui ne manque pas de captiver.

Le spectateur pénètre alors dans la seconde partie - la première étant entièrement centrée sur le groupe d’influence féminin- au cœur de l’action avec l’arrivée de Jean Baumel, ce mufle machiavélique des cercles du pouvoir odieusement bienveillant auquel Richard Berry se fait un malin plaisir de prêter ses traits. S’ensuit un ballet de trahisons, passe-droits, chausse-trappes pièges et perfidies qui donnent à ce récit un petit air de polar aux relents machistes. C'est que Beaumel a une bonne raison d’imposer son protégé falot : à la suite de magouilles dangereuses, 800 millions d’euros se sont volatilisés par sa faute, qu’il s’agit de faire passer par pertes et profits…

On se régale à entendre les joutes verbales entre ce stratège aguerri et cette prétendante aux plus haute fonctions. Des dialogues ciselés juste à point. De plus le jeu impeccable d’Emmanuelle Devos éblouit, se moulant à la perfection dans le maintien des femmes à poigne tout en étant pétrie d' humanité.

Une comédie tout en finesse !

Comédie.110 minutes.Avec Emmanuelle Devos, Suzanne Clément, Sami Frey, Richard Berry, Benjamin Biolay, Anne Azoulay, Francine Bergé.

C'est une grande personnalité du monde du cinéma qui disparaît. Le comédien Jean Rochefort est s'en est allé dans la nuit de dimanche à ce lundi, à l'âge de 87 ans. Il avait été hospitalisé en août dernier pour des douleurs abdominales.

Mais il avait poursuivi les enregistrements malicieux et modernes de la série "Le Boloss des Belles Lettres", émission de France 5 dans laquelle l'acteur interprétait avec sa verve habituelle une œuvre du patrimoine littéraire en langage de la rue.

A l'aise dans tous les registres, aussi bien comiques que dramatiques, ce comédien au flegme tout britannique a su séduire de nombreux cinéastes de renom par sa polyvalence et sa passion du métier.

Il débute sa carrière avec la "bande du Conservatoire" national supérieur d'art dramatique à Paris, dans les années 1950 où il rencontre ses amis qu’étaient Jean-Pierre Marielle, Claude Rich, Jean-Paul Belmondo ou encore Annie Girardot.

Reconnaissable à sa voix chaude et ses belles moustaches, Jean Rochefort a tourné près de 150 films, aussi bien de cinéma d'auteur que populaire ; Il aimait également les planches.

Sa véritable formation se fait là, dans des petits rôles où il se jugeait lui-même maladroit.

Parallèlement, dès la fin des années 1950, il s'est glissé dans le cinéma par la petite porte.. «Longtemps, j'ai méprisé le cinéma, Je me considérais comme un acteur de théâtre, qui acceptait parfois un film avec une indifférence complète pour le sujet.» expliquait-il.

L'acteur, connu pour humour cinglant et sa fine moustache, fait partie de ces figures incontournables du cinéma français. Parmi ses illustres films, devenus des classiques du cinéma français, on compte "Un éléphant ça trompe énormément", "Le Crabe-tambour", "Ridicule", "Le grand blond avec une chaussure noire" ou encore "Le Mari de la coiffeuse".

Il incarne un flegmatique valet anglais dans "Les tribulations d'un chinois en Chine" de Philippe de Broca .

C'est dans les années 1970 qu'il a pris sa véritable stature à l'écran. Bertrand Tavernier lui offre alors ses premiers rôles importants, aux côtés de Philippe Noiret, dans" L'Horloger de Saint-Paul" puis dans" Que la fête commence!" qui lui vaudra en libertin cynique le césar du meilleur second rôle, celui de l'abbé Dubois. Puis il remporte le césar du meilleur acteur pour sa composition grave et hantée du capitaine dans Le Crabe-Tambour, de Pierre Schoendoerffer.

Fidèle à sa réputation, Jean Rochefort continue de surprendre en choisissant des projets aussi divers qu’ambitieux. Il apparaît en 2007 dans "J'ai toujours rêvé d'être un gangster", film en noir et blanc atypique de Samuel Benchetrit, et s’amuse dans le non moins décalé "Agathe Cléry" d’Étienne Chatiliez, en patron de Valérie Lemercier.

De ce métier d'acteur, il en rêvait dans son adolescence nantaise: «Dans ma jeunesse, j'étais timide et assez solitaire. Le dimanche après-midi, j'allais voir Gary Cooper et je me disais: c'est là-bas qu'il faut habiter. Derrière l'écran…»

Jean Rochefort restait discret sur sa vie privée. Père de six enfants, il avait été marié pendant 20 ans à Alexandra Moscwa, avant de partager pendant sept ans la vie de la réalisatrice Nicole Garcia. Il s'est ensuite remarié avec l'architecte Françoise Vidal, avec qui il partageait sa passion de l'équitation.

En 2013, il a publié Ce genre de choses, son premier livre, autobiographique, un recueil de souvenirs sur sa vie, son arrivée à Paris, son amour du théatre et de la scène. « La peur de la mort, ça c’est pas marrant. Je ne voudrais pas claquer tout de suite parce que j’ai encore plein de choses à faire », racontait-il à l’époque.

En février 2013, Jean Rochefort avait envisagé une retraite possible, à l'occasion de la sortie de" L'Artiste et son modèle", de Fernando Trueba. Rappelant qu'il avait déjà arrêté le théâtre, il expliquait alors qu'il arrêterait aussi le cinéma "à moins de tomber sur un projet de film qui [le] bouleverserait".

Ce fut en 2015 "Floride", de Philippe Le Guay avec Sandrine Kiberlain où le comédien incarnait un homme atteint de la maladie d'Alzheimer en conflit avec sa fille.

"J'ai vécu la vie dont je rêvais", confiait-il en 2014 à Laurent Delahousse, qui lui consacrait un numéro d'"Un jour, un destin".

Blade Runner 2049 depuis mercredi 4 octobre 2017 sur les écrans, déjà estampillé de la mention "chef-d'oeuvre".

A l'origine, il y a un livre de Philip K. Dick avec pour titre, Les androïdes rêvent-ils de moutons électriques?, dont le réalisateur Ridley Scott tire Blade Runner, polar d'anticipation dans lequel Harrison Ford est un flic, un "blade runner", chargé d'éliminer les humanoïdes rebelles, les "répliquants".

Le nouveau blockbuster a pour protagoniste un flic androïde rebelle, ou "blade runner répliquant" (Ryan Gosling), qui se dit qu'il n'est peut-être pas qu'une machine...« Blade Runner 2049 » :

Denis Villeneuve a situé son film, magnifique et cauchemardesque, trente ans après celui de Ridley Scott.

Un opéra de science-fiction maîtrisé du premier au dernier acte.

Des mouvements de film noir et de suspense, interrompus par des révélations tonitruantes.

Le scénario de Blade ­Runner 2049, signé Hampton Fancher et Michael Green, fait un saut en avant de trente ans.

L'argument est simple et terrifiant: une révélation folle risque de faire sombrer le monde.

Avec ses fausses pistes et ses traquenards, ses références religieuses, le film ne se repose pas sur le seul impact de son grand frère de 1982.

Denis Villeneuve s’en est emparé produisant un film magnifique, une immersion toxique et exquise dans un univers où les choix malheureux de l’humanité conduisent au cauchemar.

Avec son directeur de la photographie, Roger Deakins, le cinéaste qué­bécois a enveloppé ce paysage d’apocalypse d’une brume dans ­laquelle se meuvent des personnages à l’identité fluctuante – humains, machines, ­vivants,morts…

Les décors laissent bouche bée, la photographie colorée de Roger Deakins sublime chaque scène

Le montage, aussi, alternant temps présent et flash-back, rêves ou réalités passées  Le  premier film suivait la traque d'androïdes rebelles (les « réplicants ») par un superflic désabusé, dans un Los Angeles de l'an 2019 écrasé par la pollution

.Au fil du récit Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) finissait par prendre conscience de l'inhumanité de sa missionet, tombé amoureux de la réplicante Rachel,il prit la et fuite avec elle.

Ryan Gosling incarne K au statut de réplicant. C’est parce qu’il est lui-même un androïde d’apparence humaine qu’il est le mieux qualifié pour ce poste de « blade runner », pourchassant les derniers survivants de la génération des machines que traquait déjà Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford).

Mais dans Blade Runner 2049, la Californie a plongé dans un univers crépusculaire. Après l'implosion des éco-système, Los Angeles agonise.

De nouvelles générations d'androïdes, plus performants et obéissants, sont au service des autorités. K. exerce dans l’agglomération de Los Angeles.

En tuant un réplicant, K., lui-même tout à fait conscient de sa condition de machine, a ouvert une brèche dans le mur sans faille que les humains ont érigé pour ­tenir leurs créatures robotiques à l’écart de l’espèce qui les a conçus.

Moins qu’une machine sophistiquée, K. est un esclave .

Film américain de Denis Villeneuve. Avec Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, Hiam Abbass, Jared Leto (2 h 43).

De Beau travail en passant par Les Salauds, sans oublier le météorique Trouble Every Day, Claire Denis a derrière elle une filmographie aussi stimulante qu' imprévisible.

Déjà présenté à Cannes en ouverture de la Quinzaine des réalisateurs à Cannes, le treizième long-métrage de Claire Denis raconte les tourments et errements amoureux d’une quinquagénaire perdue. Isabelle, divorcée, un enfant, cherche un amour. Enfin un vrai amour. L’espoir, l’attente, la déception, Isabelle passe par tous les états, et tous les sentiments. "Un film omnibus" : une" adaptation" par plusieurs réalisateurs des Fragments d’un discours amoureux de Roland Barthes (les ayants droit du livre ont mis leur veto).

Cette femme, c'est Juliette Binoche. Elle est de toutes les scènes, de tous les plans passant de contrechamps ,à plans moyens et fixes .

Dès la première scène, Binoche intrigue. On la voit alors nue, sublimée par la lumière d’Agnès Godard, dans un coït lourdaud, mené sans fougue ni passion. Lorsque son amant en finit, Isabelle le gifle

Incarnée par une actrice solaire, capable de dégager avec une puissance ahurissante quantité d’émotions à priori contradictoires en une poignée de secondes, l’héroïne passe de bras en bras. Défile une étonnante galerie de personnages masculins ayant tous des rapports compliqués avec le sentiment amoureux : le grand banquier goujat, l'acteur fragile, le provincial taiseux, le galeriste mondain…

Ainsi vit le personnage interprété par Binoche, passant à côté d’amours puissants, perdant son temps en poursuivant d’inutiles aventures.

Un beau soleil intérieur s’organise en scènes qui forment à peine un scénario . Claire Denis a choisi le dépouillement. Lorsqu’ils se parlent, les personnages le font face caméra .

La beauté de Juliette Binoche, dans ce rôle de séductrice sensuelle et tourmentée, son élan naturel, suffisent à créer de la proximité avec le spectateur. Le long-métrage affiche un casting cinq étoiles ! Balasko, Beauvois, Binoche, Depardieu, Duvauchelle, Podalydès s’y courtisent, se fatiguent puis se quittent en un ballet moderne . La possible absence de solutions pour cette Isabelle qui aurait pourtant mérité de trouver l'homme susceptible de la rendre heureuse rend le film profondément humain. En cela, il nous remémore les romans de Christine Angot, la scénariste du film, ses livres dont on connaît souvent le point de départ mais jamais vraiment l’issue...

Quand Gérard Depardieu a finalement sa grande scène de bonimenteur , c’est la dernière du film. Le générique est envoyé, pendant que l’acteur est encore à l’image, face à Binoche.

Un film si, trop? proche du réel qu’on le confond avec nos vies…

Un beau soleil intérieur

Date de sortie : 27 septembre 2017 (1h 34min)

Réalisation : Claire Denis

Scénario : Christine Angot

Avec Juliette Binoche, Xavier Beauvois, Philippe Katerine plus

Le film a obtenu le prix la SACD lors de la Quinzaine des réalisateurs à Cannes.

Avec 120 battements par minute, Robin Campillo nous offre un film exceptionnel sur un sujet cruellement universel et toujours d’actualité », a souligné mardi Frédérique Bredin, présidente du Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée (CNC).

Le film de Robin Campillo c'est l'histoire du combat de militants d’Act Up au début des années 1990 alors que l’épidémie de sida sévit et que la maladie s'avère mal perçue.

Les malades du Sida se débattent ou s’affrontent sur les actions à mener en ce temps où l’on meurt du sida dans l’indifférence...qui débattent ou s’affrontent sur les actions à mener en ce temps où l’on meurt du sida dans l’indifférence

Benoit Magimel est un acteur français, né à Paris le 11 mai 1974. A 13 ans il décroche son premier rôle au cinéma dans la comédie d’Etienne Chatillez, «La vie est un long fleuve tranquille » dans lequel il incarne Momo Groseille, rôle dans lequel il se fait remarquer.

Enthousiasmé par cette première expérience, il décide d’abandonner ses études et de devenir comédien.

A partir de là, il côtoie les plus grands acteurs :

Nathalie Baye, Isabelle Huppert, Catherine Deneuve, Daniel Auteuil, Juliette Binoche avec laquelle il sera marié pendant quelques années. Il côtoie aussi, les plus grands réalisateurs :

Etienne Chatillez bien sûr, mais aussi André Téchiné, Xavier Beauvois, Michel Haneka, Mathieu Kassotwitz, Claude Chabrol ...

Il est nommé au César Masculin en 1997, obtient en 2001 le Prix d’interprétation masculine au Festival de Cannes (Pour son rôle dans le film « La pianiste »). En 2016, il reçoit le César du meilleur acteur dans un second rôle dans le film « La tête haute ».

Bref ! La carrière artistique de Benoit Magimel est au tournant de l’année 2016 au zénith et son ascension indiscutable est saluée par tous.

Mais dès 2014 des déboires ont commencé à apparaître, pour crescendo prendre une tournure publique que plus personne ne peut ignorer et qui révèle ses addictions aux drogues.

Le 14 mars 2016, Benoit Magimel renverse une femme de 62 ans sur le Boulevard Exelmans à Paris, à la suite d’une marche arrière. Affaire banale et malheureusement courante !

Sauf, qu’après avoir pris des nouvelles de la personne qu’il venait de renverser, il a pris la fuite...

Très vite rattrapé, il a été mis en garde à vue. A l’occasion de celle-ci, les analyses toxicologiques détectent des traces de cocaïne... une fois de plus !  L’acteur avait donc consommé de la drogue, mais au delà de ces faits, il s’est avéré qu’il roulait sans permis ?

Pour sa défense, il a prétexté qu’il n’était pas au courant de la perte de ses points ?

L’argument n’a pas suffit ! Il a été condamné en appel à une amende de 5000 €, une amende 4 à 5 fois supérieure à celle qu’il avait du acquitter en 2014 pour déjà avoir conduit sous l’emprise de stupéfiants.

Ces condamnations n’ont pas assagi pour autant cet acteur brillant (âgé aujourd’hui de 43 ans).

Ce lundi matin 18 septembre, à 4h il a été interpellé par la police après avoir franchi un sens interdit ?
