Three movies to feel alive :

(1) Born in Jerusalem and still alive

By Yossi Atia et David Ofek


Ronen lives on Jaffa Street in Jerusalem. He takes care every day of his father who refuses to leave his house since the death of his wife. Ronen has nightmares. Every day, he wakes up in a sweat.

Then, one morning, he decides to show tourists where the bombs exploded in Jaffa street. Jaffa Street is the street that has seen the most attacks in the world.

A young Japanese boy comes, then a group and every day new tourists discover the Jaffa street and the places of the attacks guided by Ronen. Ronen does not charge for his “visits”. He considers that it is his duty of memory to pass on to others the story of the attacks on this street. He distinguishes between “routine” (bus) and “exceptional” (café) attacks. Between his father and the tourists, Ronen lives in seclusion.
Then he meets a young Israeli tourist who is studying in Barcelona…

There are no words in Hebrew to talk about this period of the attacks. This rather successful first film – it’s a bit long at times – has some beautiful tragicomic moments and deals with a subject rarely seen in cinema: the trauma of the populations victim of attacks.

Three movies to feel alive :



If I pronounce Bill Murray, you will think immediately of Lost in Translation. Even if he has never won an Oscar, Bill Murray is the actor we would all like to know, he breathes intelligence and his half sad half funny face makes him close to us, a little like Tom Hanks.

Bill Murray lives without having an agent – which is very rare in Hollywood – and chooses his parts through a dedicated voice mailbox.

The pitch

A late career actor, Bob Harris (Bill Murray) and Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), a recently married young woman meet in a luxury hotel in Japan. Everything is lost in translation: the time zone, their own lives, the culture of the country. The two characters get attached though a bond that no film critic has ever really managed to elucidate. Maybe that’s why the movie has become cult.

Sofia Coppola drew inspiration from her past life in Japan and the relationship between Bogart and Bacall in The Big Sleep (see review) to tell this story which, while romantic, is above all poetic and puts us in the same mood as Bob and Charlotte.

Three movies to feel alive :

(3) The goldfinch

Script Peter Straughan- Director John Crowley


Adapted from Donna Tartt’s eponymous novel I had loved reading, I recently watched the movie on Canal+.

The director – whom I had seen Brooklyn, a very nice film about an Irish immigrant in New York of the last century – I really liked his vision of The goldfinch. The actor who plays Theo Decker the little boy, Oakes Fegley, is extraordinary. I’ve read a lot of bad reviews on this film which I found successful, even if it’s not perfect (some clichés…).

The life of this little boy who survives an attack in which his mother dies at the Metropolitan Museum and his torments, so extraordinary as they were described by Donna Tartt, is masterfully interpreted and filmed by John Crowley
