Movies and series, what’s new ?

On the bilingual Movieintheair blog, I do for you a press review every Wednesday and keep the best of the national and international audiovisual news.

This week, many events have taken place in the audiovisual world.

Today begins The Mostra of Venice, with Cate Blanchett as President of the Jury,  with its selection of films, one of the most beautiful film festivals in the world, one of the reason is the beauty of the city that hosts it.

  • The death of Chadwick Boseman has shaken the world’s cinema.
  • The first episodes of certain series, as well as certain films, are available without the user having to create an account on NETFLIX. 
  • MK2: Mk2 cinemas will host MK2 Institute in partnership with France Culture, dedicated to conferences on the history of cinema, the history of art, meetings with great writers including the immense Erri de Luca to begin with, cycles of cult films, animation and short films. All the program here
  • Masks are mandatory in theaters for the duration of the films. Let’s hope that this will not slow down viewers, who, except for Tenet (more than 800,000 admissions in France in less than a week), have trouble getting back to the theaters.

Many films are coming out in cinemas, new series on your platforms and new ways for movie theaters to fight against Covid 19.

So here are the new movies in theaters, films to see in your movie theaters, new series, the best of your TV programs and all the news from the festivals.

The death of Chadwick Boseman, movie star of  Black Panther and Get on up because of the consequences of colon cancer at only forty-three years of age cast a shadow over the start of the film season and many tributes were paid to him.

I remember his great performance as James Brown (Get on up) and the physical strength he showed in Black Panther. He didn’t look like he was sick and yet he had been fighting this disease for several

Some movies make you feel like you’re being punched. This was the case for Madre, finally seen in the cinema Le Balzac today.

The beginning of Madre is as strong as the beginning of Foxtrot and the spectator finds it hard to catch his breath. This is the strength of Rodrigo Sorogoyen, director of El Reino and Que Dios nos perdone.



Ten years have passed since Elena’s son, then 6 years old, disappeared. Ten years since that phone call where alone and lost on a beach in the Landes, he told her that he could no longer find his father. Today, Elena lives and works there in a seaside restaurant. Devastated, her life follows its course. One day, she sees a sixteen-year-old boy who looks strangely like her son….


After a chilling beginning, the film unfolds slowly. Elena runs a restaurant by the sea, walks for hours on the beach, meets her friend but is unfathomably sad. Elena oscillates between madness and sorrow.

Her eyes, her looks, even her body are sad. The director plunges us into her distress, and the wide shots of her wandering on the beach constantly send us back to her son’s call for help, except when she finds Jean. Jean is the teenager for whom she takes affection, whom she wants to protect and who gradually brings her back to life.

Does Elena have the impression of finding her son in Jean? Does Jean fall in love with her fragility? We don’t know what is going on between them, just as we don’t know what happened to her son…


Marta Nieto won the Goya for Best Actress in this film and the Orizzonti Prize for Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival last year. The film has won a series of awards, including the Goya for Best Film.

Rodrigo Sorodoyen directed a sublime film about the impossible mourning of a mother. A hard and strong story about being a mother, a situation that cannot be undone.

Jules Porier : Jean
Alex Brendemühl : Joseba, le fiancée d’Elena

movies series


By Erik Skjoldbjærg & Karianne Lund


Sometimes reality sadly joins fiction. Currently, Denmark and NATO deplore the intrusion of a Russian fighter plane into Danish airspace. And this week, I have chosen to tell you about the Norwegian series Occupied.


In the near future, Russia occupy Norway with the consent of the European Union to appropriate its oil.

The series

Everything is gradually being put in place. And as in the past, Europe is letting go of one of its own in the face of difficulties.

The subject this time is oil. For fear of running out of it, Europe asks Russia to put pressure on Norway to continue producing its famous fossil energy. The Prime Minister, elected to implement clean energy, gives in because he is alone against Europe, the United States and Russia. And then the situation is getting worst.

The main characters are faced with radical choices: a bodyguard, a lawyer, a restaurateur, a chief of staff, a Prime Minister, an ambassador…

During the episodes and the seasons, the country is invaded, the men corrupt themselves, betray their commitment, the women fight…. This series so realistic (we have a little example of it today) is simply fascinating.

Between geopolitics and their daily life, the heroes fight for their conviction or let them go.  To watch now on Netflix.
