L’oubli que nous serons

IN THEATERS

L’oubli que nous serons, by Fernando Trueba

 

Synopsis

Colombia in the 1980s.

Dr. Hector Abad Gomez, father of a family of six children, including five daughters and a son he adores, fights to get the inhabitants of Medellin out of poverty and questions the government about its inaction.

Despite the threats against him, he refuses to be silenced.

His son remembers their lives.

 

The film

 

Adapted from the novel written by Hector Abad Gomez’s son, Hector Abad Faciolince, his novel El olvido que seremos translated into several languages, is considered one of the most important novels of Colombian literature and best seller in Colombia.

It was therefore not easy, as with any adaptation, to make a success of this film, which is at the same time intimate (the adoration of a father and his son), family and historical fresco. Colombian producers had to propose it to the director and he hesitated a long time before accepting.

The director Fernando Trueba has Billy Wilder as a mentor and wanted to finally show on screen, not the mafia bosses and the killers (who have had their share of cinema) but the victims of injustice, the everyday heroes.

The oblivion that we will be is a moving film, beautiful (this alternation of black and white and color) and wonderfully played by the hero of this story, Javier Camara who also plays in the series The New Pope and Narcos and in many films by Pedro Almodovar. He said in an interview “This film was more than a film, it was a common cause”.

 

To see urgently in the cinema!

 

With also Nicolas Reyes Cano and Patricia Tamayo.

IN THEATERS

Médecin de nuit, by Élie Wajeman

 

Synopsis

Mikael is a night doctor who helps drug addicts. He does everyone a favor and at the same time is completely lost.  Married with a family, every night he finds his mistress, and his cousin to whom he provides false prescriptions until an investigation threatens to have him removed from the Order of Physicians.

Mikael wants to stop everything but it is not so simple…

 

The film

Élie Wajeman plunges us into a world that few of us know. It is about the violent, gloomy, and hard daily life of a doctor played by a brilliant Vincent Macaigne. Pio Marmaï plays wonderfully the role of the cousin who is both a crook and a party animal.

Like Jacques Audiard in De Battre mon coeur s’est arrêté, Élie Wajeman alternates moments of brutality and almost poetic pauses in the life of this man who wants to regain control over his life while being addicted to it. We follow him in this breathless race, wondering how it will all end…

This French thriller is a must-see in theaters this week.

 

Also starring Sara Giraudeau, a very good actress (also seen in Le Discours that I moderately appreciated).

 

 

À la maison

Mixte

AT HOME

 

Mixte, by Élie Wajeman

 

Synopsis

In 1963, the Voltaire high school in Saint Jean, in the Charentes Maritime region, which is not coeducational, welcomes girls for the first time, eleven in all.

The arrival of these girls will upset the daily life of everyone, theirs but also that of the teachers and the boys.

 

The series

 

Created by Marie Roussin,, this series shows us a not-so-distant France where people wondered if girls should really be sent to school.

Prejudices, machismo and misogyny have shaped French society and Mixte shows us this with a lot of humor but also a real lucidity on the education given to girls and boys which then has consequences on their whole life.

Brilliantly played by Pierre Deladonchamps, (seen in the role of the predator in Les Chatouiles), Anne Le Ny, Léonie Souchaud, Nina Meurisse, Vassili Schneider, Maud Wyler, this intelligent series sometimes makes us uncomfortable, makes us laugh and breaks the myth of the 60’s nostalgia.

 

To see at home on Prime Video (two times four episodes)

 

 

À la maison

I may destroy you

AT HOME

I may destroy you, by Michaela Coel

 

Synopsis

 

Arabella returns from Italy, where she has been having a good time thanks to the advance on her novel’s publication. In New York, she goes out one night and meets up with friends.

The next day, she wakes up with a head injury and can’t remember anything except the face of a man standing over her.

 

The series

Over twelve episodes, we follow the journey of deconstruction and reconstruction of the author, drugged without her knowledge and raped at a party in a bar.

Arabella files a complaint, is listened to, but that is not enough. What can she do to feel better?

A search for herself and an investigation of the people she has seen to try to reconstruct the facts follows.

Arabella, played by Michaela Coel, is surrounded by friends including actors Weruche Opia (Bad Education) as Terry, the heroine’s best friend, Paapa Essiedu  (Murder on the Orient Express) as Kwame, her other best friend, and Aml Ameen (Sense8) as Simon, a character close to her.

They have also had traumatic experiences without sometimes resulting in complaints.

Little by little her memories will come back. How to rebuild oneself then?

Michaela Coel delivers an autobiographical story, and the characters are all rich and complex.

“The series explores different themes: love, sex, responsibilities, friendship, what society perceives as taboos – with a lot of nuance,” Aml Asheen told the BBC a few days ago. “It’s also the first time I’ve seen Black British characters so fleshed out, highlighting the variety of our experiences. I really admire that.”

The Bafta Awards, the British television awards on Sunday night, June 6, crowned the British series I May Destroy You and its director Michaela Coel for her performance as Arabella.

This series is unique in its kind by the dry, fast, jerky writing it generates in each episode.

 

A must-see on Canal Plus and OCS.
