Movies, series to watch now
In May, Arte will broadcast a special program dedicated to the Cannes Festival: program here (in French only)
MK2 signed a partnership with Netflix. We have already the chance to watch the masterpieces of François Truffaut, and by the end of the year, we will be able to watch Claude Chabrol, Jacques Demy, David Lynch, Xavier Dolan, Krzysztof Kieslowski and Charlie Chaplin !
I have chosen three movies directed by François Truffaut, already one line: Jules et Jim, Fahrenheit 451 and Le dernier Métro.
Netflix broadcasts some podcasts on the storytelling (to listen on Spotify) and is about to produce a story of the musical platform.
The Forum des Images broadcast some movie lessons, one is particularly great with the writer and creator of True Détective, Nic Pizzolatto.
Allociné and the FNCF launched an event on line to promote the love of movie theaters #Oniratousaucinéma. The idea is to shoot some short videos (two minutes) of famous personalities from the movie industry who are now at home and talk about their love of movie theaters. The first are the two directors Olivier Nakache et Éric Tolédano. First episode here.
The second one is Alain Chabat.
The Huffington Post suggests the idea of going back to movies using Drive-in..

This is the second version of a Korean movie, Miracle in Cell No. 7 directe by Lee Hwan-Gyeong out in 2013. The director, Mehmet Ada Öztekin set up the same story about a little girl and her father, mentally handicapped unfairly accused of murder.
The Pitch: 2004 , a young woman watches herself in the mirror with a wedding dress. The radio plays then she remembers. Flash back to Turkey, 1983.
Her father, Nemo, is a sheep shepherd who is mentally handicapped . Ova lives with his father and Fatma, her grandmother. An accident happens and Memo is unjustly accused of murdering a general’s granddaughter. Incarcerated in a cell with eight other prisoners, Memo discovers violence and brotherhood.
Injustice, friendship and filial love contribute to the success of this phenomenally successful film. The extraordinary performance of the lead actor, Aras Bulut İynemli reminds me of Nevo Kimchi’s performance in the Israeli film Laces. You should see the Turkish film and the multi-award winning Korean film.
This incredible mini-series documentary on the owners of wild animals is making the buzz now !
In the United States of America, some individuals passionate by wild animals, own felines, build their own zoos. The caregivers are completely devoted to the owners and devote themselves to them so strongly that it looks like a cult. These men and women who owns these tigers and lions love them more than anything and think they are preserving nature by showing the audience and the public how beautiful they are…This is just incredible !
Succession: a great series on power and family rivalry
Once Upon a time in Hollywood, which I loved !
Tel Aviv on Fire, a great comedy, which did the opening of the last Festival du Cinéma Israélien de Paris.
And still amazing series : Zero Zero Zero, Our boys, The loudest voice, Nehama, Mrs America.
The Mandalorian, great series, spinoff of Star Wars…
I wonder what he looks like, don’t you ?
Togo with Willem Dafoe : directed by Ericson Core: in Alaska, the story of a man and his dog Togo, a Husky, in a run for medicine (does it recall you something ?) to save their village from the diphtheria.
The Handmaid’s Tale : may be, my favorite series. Watch it for the photography, the story, the great performance of Elisabeth Moss and this incredible adaptation of the novel written by Margaret Atwood, which goes beyond the story she wrote.
Richard Brody tells us in the The New Yorker what he misses most about movie theaters, and suggests us to watch The clock.
