Two love movies this week

Ondine movie and All Together Now


Ondine movie

Ondine et All Together Now


The Pitch

Ondine sits facing a man. He is leaving her. She threatens him with death. Shortly afterwards, she meets Christoph, a diver.  It is love at first sight. Ondine is a historian and lectures on the city of Berlin. As soon as she has finished her day, they meet again and love each other…

The Movie

Silver Bear for Best Actress for Paula Beer, International Critics’ Grand Prize at the Berlin Festival in 2020, Ondine movie is lived as an experience.

Inspired by Germanic mythology, Ondine are aquatic geniuses, nymphs, they live in running water, fountains, rivers.

If the beginning of Ondine movie seems a little slow, the film ends up hypnotizing us. Between tale and reality, the love between Ondine and Christophe grows until it becomes unfailing, then mythical.

The close shots on Ondine’s hair (homage to the mermaid’s golden hair), the images filmed underwater participate in this spell. A permanent sensuality hovers. The words spoken by Ondine speak of the past and do not speak of love. In her voice, there is softness and nostalgia.

In Ondine movie, love is only looks and gestures. On the screen, everything is only modesty. Ondine talks to us about love but also about our relationship with the past, those we have lost and the beings we are afraid to lose.

Photography is also sublime. Directed by Hans Fromm, he collaborated on all of Christian Petzold’s films.

Christian Petzold has a way of filming that reminds us of Asian filmmakers such as Wong Kar-Waï in In The Mood For Love where everything is only suggested. He recently declared: “Cinema is profoundly romantic no matter what you do” (Le Monde).

His film is about one love, the love of the other.


Besides Ondine movie,  All Together Now on Netflix speaks to us about the love of others.


With Paula Beer, Franz Rogowski, Maryam Zaree, Jacob Matschenz




Ondine et All Together Now


All Together Now

Directed by Brett Haley

on Netflix


The Pitch

Based on the novel, Sorta Like a Rockstar by Mattew Quick, All Together Now tells the story of a young homeless girl, Amber. At night, she sleeps with her mother in a school bus. Lacking a father and a home, she is without a place to stay and always keeps her Chihuahua in her bag.
After high school, her day doesn’t end there. She helps put on a show, volunteers with Korean women who are learning English, and on weekends distributes meals in a retirement home. But she has only one dream: to sing…

The movie

All Together Now takes it time but Amber’s story of her love for others touches us deeply. Her dream of becoming a singer and the difficult economic context remind us of Teen Spirit with Elle Fanning.

She loves to help. However, she refuses the help of her friends. If the message of the film is obvious enough, the direction and especially its main actress, Auli’i Cravalho, Hawaiian, – she sings in Vaiana (Moana), make All Together Now, a nice movie to watch at the moment on Netflix.

Also to be seen for the small but beautifully performed role of the huge Carol Burnett and Judy Reyes, known for her role in Scrubs, Jane The Virgin and Better Things (created by Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon), the story of an actress who raises her three daughters alone.


Screenwriters Haley, Marc Basch, Matthew Quick and Ol Parker.

With Auli’i Cravalho, Rhenzy Feliz, Judy Reyes, Justina Machado, Taylor Richardson, C.S. Lee, Fred Armisen, Carol Burnett

Music by Keegan DeWitt
