WEEKLY CULT MOVIE

Another Woman– 1988- Woody Allen

cinema movies series festivals

Trailer

Marion is a fifty-year-old woman who seems to be doing well in everything: her career as a university philosophy teacher, her marriage, her social life. She decides to take a break in her career to devote herself to writing a novel. She rents a studio where, due to a defect in the wall, she stumbles upon the conversations of a patient, Hope (!!), with her psychotherapist.  Little by little, she questions the choices she has made in her life…

This film is probably one of Woody Allen’s ten best films. Never has her understanding of women been so accurate and so subtly emphasized. Geena Rowlands is perfect in the role of this cold woman for whom the life rocks and Mia Farrow interprets with accuracy the youth and the fear of the failure of an undergone marital life.

With :
Gena Rowlands (VF : Nadine Alari) : Marion
Mia Farrow (VF : Élisabeth Wiener) : Hope
Ian Holm (VF : Serge Lhorca) : Ken
Blythe Danner (VF : Sylvie Moreau) : Lydia
Gene Hackman (VF : Jean-Pierre Moulin): Larry

 

YOUR WEEKLY MOVIE

NETFLIX

Trailer

Feel the beat is broadcast on Netflix. And this movie is different from the dance movies we’re used to.

The pitch: April has only one dream: to become a star in Broadway. But after a setback, she is forced to return home to Wisconsin. So far, nothing is very original in the story. Except that…

At home, April is reunited with her father, her former lover, but mostly with her dance teacher and her students.
Moved as soon as she arrives by an egocentric desire to return to the stage, April decides to train a heterogeneous dance class: very young girls, older, gifted, less gifted, unmotivated girls…

We are drawn into a story that proves to be surprising, and completely different from the clichés about dance where everything is just a show. In this film, it’s not just about becoming better and better, but about staying close and enthusiastic no matter what happens.

Unlike movies where the heroine has to make a choice, Elissa Down‘s vision is different. What matters in dance is both  passion, success and the joy of a communion between a teacher and his students.

To listen to: the music of the film, full of good old hits…

 

Directed by Elissa Down
Script: Michael Armbruster, Shawn Ku
With: Sofia Carson, Enrico Colantoni, Wolfgang Novogratz
Music  Michael Yezerski
Jessy Lipke: she did  Sofia Carson dance scenes.
