Bac Nord, by Cedric Jimenez

 

Synopsis

2012. The northern districts of Marseille hold a sad record: the area with the highest crime rate in France. Under the pressure of its hierarchy, the BAC Nord, a field brigade, is constantly seeking to improve its results. In a high-risk area, the police adapt their methods, sometimes crossing the yellow line. Until the day when the legal system turns against them.

 

The story

Gregory (Gilles Lellouche), Yassine (Karim Leklou) and Antoine (François Civil) are the three police officers who are exhausted from doing their job, which seems to them to be meaningless, as the housing estates in the northern districts of Marseille rule their own law. Pushed to the limit by their hierarchy, who, following a video of an arrogant “charbonneur” (small dealer), asks them to make a muscular intervention in a city. But they have to collect 5 kgs to give to their informant, Amel (Kenza Fortas) to collect information. The policemen are obliged to racketeer the drug users to pay her.

They intervene and later are accused of drug trafficking …

The plot is loosely based on the scandal that took place in 2012 in the anti-crime squad (BAC) of Marseille: eighteen of its members had been referred to correctional for drug trafficking and rackets.

 

The film

Shot on the shoulder, breathless, Bac Nord is both well directed and well shot. The tension and violence that reign in the cities transpire on the screen, the statistical absurdity required of the arrests and the lack of support from the hierarchy in this legal story leave the viewer shocked by this story. The power of cinema and fiction takes on its full meaning and the actors are equal to the story.

A must-see!

The Chair, by Amanda Peet

 

Synopsis

Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim (Sandra Oh) is the first woman of Asian descent to become Chair of the English Department at the fictional University of Pembroke.

Her lover, Bill Dobson (Jay Duplass), a professor at the university, is grieving and facing possible dismissal after a bad joke.

A Black-American professor, Yaz McKay (Nana Mensah) is supposed to be given tenure but her supervisor has another person in mind.

 

The series

The Chair is both a funny and moving series. It challenges us on many social issues, inclusion, the love of teaching, the place of women and minorities in universities. The immediate condemnation before explanation and without possible debate related to the place of social networks, and the difference of treatment between men and women within the university are treated each time in an intelligent and sensitive way.

The place of literature and poetry, their appeal to students in universities today, the poems recited by Bill Dobson (Jay Duplass) and the struggle of Professor Joan Hambling (played magnificently by Holland Taylor) to preserve Chaucer’s teachings enrich this successful series whose original subject, the role of the university today, is finally rarely addressed.

Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim (Sandra Oh) plays this courageous woman who fights on all fronts to keep her role, make her daughter happy and maintain her position at the university.

In the end, it’s not so much about succeeding professionally as it is about doing what you love and what help you to get up in the morning and makes you feel alive.

Starring Jay Duplass (Professor Bill Dobson), Holland Taylor (Professor Joan Hambling), Bob Balaban (Professor Elliot Rentz), Nana Mensah (Professor Yaz McKay), David Morse (Dean Paul Larson), Everly Carganilla (Ju-Hee “Ju Ju” Kim).

Nine perfect strangers, by David E. Kelley

 

Synopsis

Nine perfect strangers is an adaptation by David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies, The Undoing, The Big Sky) of a book by Liane Moriarty.

The plot takes place in a wellness center where the ethereal Masha (Nicole Kidman) plays a guru, an ex-mafia woman, dead and resurrected by a nurse, Yao (Manny Jacinto) who welcomes the newcomers with the help of Delilah (Tiffany Boone).

Different personalities come to this center where every day, the residents must submit to blood tests?

Thus, Frances (Melissa McCarthy) is a sad writer. Napoleon (Michael Shannon, present this year at the Deauville American Film Festival), Heather (Asher Keddie) and Zoe (Grace Van Patten) are still mourning the loss of their son and brother. Carmel (Regina Hall) is both sad and insecure. Tony (Bobby Cannavale) is depressed. Lars Lee (Luke Evans) is observant and critical. Jessica (Samara Weaving) and her husband Ben (Melvin Greg) are having marital problems…

 

The series

Nine perfect strangers looks strangely like a mixture of Homecoming, The White Lotus with a touch of Agatha Christie.

Nicole Kidman is great as usual in the role of this woman a little crazy and inhabited by a will unknown to us.

The characters of the series find their place little by little and yet it is difficult to get attached to them. It remains to be seen if the rest of the story will be up to the secret that is hidden from us.
