Series, movies, what to watch in June

New series, new movies and new documentaries are coming out in June. Meanwhile movie theaters are closed, there is a great deal of possibilities.

David Lynch released a short movie on Youtube (link in the article below), I watched a great documentary of Timothy Chalamet. And Claude Lelouch is to release a new movie on Canal+ (more in the article).

Don’t forget new series on your platforms and the festivals which will open in June (Champs Elysées Film Festival, Annecy ‘s International Film Animation festival) and the global movie on line festival, We are One, a global film festival now on line.

What to watch in June: movies and series

Old and new films & series

 

1. REVIEW

 

Two investigations ‘ stories

 

Manhattan Murder Mystery  currently on Netflix

Directed by Woody Allen- Script Woody Allen & Marshall Brickman – With Woody Allen, Diane Keaton, Alan Alda Anjelica Huston, and Zach Braff. Music: Cole Porter, Errol Garner, Wagner.

 

I watched again this movie directed by Woody Allen. The story is about a woman, Carol, played by Diane Keaton, obsessed by the death of her old neighbor. She suspects the husband to have murdered her. Carol bores herself with her husband Larry, played by Woody Allen, and investigates with an old friend who is still in love with her, Ted, played by Alan Alda. The story, the music, and the dialogues are just perfect. It is one of the greatest movie directed by Woody Allen.

The famous  “I can’t listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland” is one of his best lines.

There is also a tribute to two great movies: Double Indemnity by Billy Wilder and The Lady from Shangai by Orson Wells. Woody Allen managed to blended genre comedy, with, sometimes,a film noir atmosphere. Zach Braff (the hero of the series Scrub) plays the son. We also meet Anjelica Huston, sensational, who plays a writer published by Woody Allen .
This movie is a great moment of pleasure, with a great end. You should watch it  now.

 

White Lines

In a very different style, Alex Pina, the creator of La Casa de Papel gives us some good moments  in Ibiza. The story of Zoé investigating the death of her brother missing for twenty years is both light and dramatic. We discover an island where everything is possible and we are touched by the story of this woman who does not know who she is and what she really wants.

Both shot  in Spanish and English, the photography of this series is beautiful, by Kieran McGuigan. Alex Pina pays tribute to Jean-Luc Godard in one episode of the series with Breathless quoted by one of his character and in non-cliché way. If you found who is the character, write me to contact@movieintheair.com.

Zoé is played by Laura Haddock (Da Vinci’s Demon), and I really loved the character of Boxer, played by Nuno Lopes (Une fille facile, Chamboultout). Tom Rhys Harries is perfect, whom I discovered in The Gentlemen (last movie directed by Guy Ritchie). The all cast is great.  Even if this series could have been shorter and is far from the strength of La Casa de Papel, I enjoyed it very much.
