Le Figaro









The Fly, by David Cronenberg

This is the film adaptation of the eponymous short story by author George Langelaan, already brought to the screen in Kurt Neumann’s The Black Fly (1958).

The theme of the transformation of the human body and of the flesh is found in David Cronenberg‘s film, which is the biggest commercial success, and has now become a cult film.

It is the first major role of Jeff Goldblum, before Jurassic Park by Steven Spielberg in 1993.





The Nightmare Before Christmas, by Henry Selick

Written by Tim Burton and starring Chris Sarandon, Catherine O’Hara and William Hickey in the original version, the film tells the story of Jack Skellington’s discovery of Christmas town and his attempt to import the Christmas holiday into Halloween town.

This film is the development of a poem written in the 1980s by Tim Burton when he was an animator at Disney Studios. Only three characters, Jack, his dog Zero and Santa Claus, appeared in the original text. The character of Jack Skellington had already made a brief appearance in the film Beetlejuice, and then made another appearance in the form of a wink in the film James and the Giant Peach, of which Tim Burton is a producer, in the role of the captain of a ghost ship. At the rate of one week’s work for one minute of film, bringing the world of Jack and Sally to the screen required nearly three years of work.





Shining, by Stanley Kubrick

American-British psychological horror film released in 1980, is the eleventh feature film directed by Stanley Kubrick, with Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall and Danny Lloyd in the main roles. At Kubrick’s request, Jack Nicholson was dubbed by Jean-Louis Trintignant, who had never dubbed before.

The American writer Stephen King (whose novel The Shining, is the basis) said he both loved and hated the adaptation made with the novelist Diane Johnson, their script betraying, according to him, the spirit of the book and the major themes it addresses, such as the disintegration of the family and alcoholism.

Now considered a classic of horror cinema, the film is in the tradition of Rosemary’s Baby or The Exorcist. It incorporates three concepts: the isolated and haunted house, a central character ready to exterminate his entire family and extrasensory perceptions (present, past and future events, telepathy), i.e. the Shining.

The director Martin Scorsese ranks it seventh among the eleven scariest films in cinema.





Alien, by Ridley Scott

Written by Dan O’Bannon and released in 1979.

The plot revolves around the struggle undertaken by the crew of a space freighter against an unknown and aggressive alien creature that hunts the seven members of the ship to kill them. It won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects and dominated the Saturn Awards, winning three awards including Best Science Fiction Film.

Alien now has cult status, with Alien considered by many to be a classic of science fiction cinema that helped evolve the genre.

The film is said to be the first “horrific science fiction” film with a female heroine, in the person of Ripley, Sigourney Weaver, who becomes an iconic feminist figure1.

Its main antagonist, the xenomorph, becomes one of the most recognizable monsters of the seventh art, and some scenes of the film quickly become “cult”, as the scene of the chestburster.




The Exorcist, by  William Friedkin

Released in 1973. The theme, the tragic events of the shooting and the reception by the public made it a cult film.

It is the film adaptation of the 1971 novel of the same name written by William Peter Blatty. The book, based on a real-life exorcism case in 1949, tells the story of a little girl, Regan McNeil, who is possessed by a demon, and the exorcists Lankester Merrin and Damien Karras who try to exorcise her.

The film stars Ellen Burstyn, Max von Sydow, Jason Miller and Linda Blair. It is based on the theme of the demonic child, following Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby, and before Richard Donner’s The Curse.

The Exorcist is one of the highest grossing horror films in history with $2,107,350,000 worldwide. It is also considered a classic of horror cinema, and the American Film Institute ranked it 3rd best thriller behind Psycho and Jaws. It received 2 Oscars and 4 Golden Globes.










Tonton Manu, by Patrick Puzenat & Thierry Dechilly

The directors Patrick Puzenat and Thierry Dechilly had the chance to meet Manu Dibango, known as Manu, for five years on three continents, that is to say almost 100,000 kms. 


The film begins at the dawn of Manu Di Bango’s eightieth birthday.

Between interviews, concerts and a return to his roots, Manu Dibango smiles and jokes, but when it comes to music, he is serious, modest and, as a jazzman (even if he denies it), improvises. 

Emmanuel N’Djoké Dibango, known as “Manu Digango” was born on December 12, 1933 in Douala, Cameroon, where he began learning to sing in a choir and to learn about world music.

He learned music by borrowing a saxophone from a friend (and “I never gave it back to him” he says). 

He was a rock pianist for Dick Rivers, conductor for Nino Ferrer, toured with Eddy Mitchell, and at the end of 1956 he decided to try his luck in Brussels. Through a friend, he is hired at Tabou, a fashionable cabaret in the Belgian capital. He met a model, Coco, who later became his wife.

Those who knew him, Yannick Noah, who calls him “Tonton Manu” since he was a child, the great musicians like Omar Sosa (who compares him to Miles Davis) and Ray Lema in Brazil, all admire him. 


Soul Makossa

When asked about “Soul Makossa” and its appropriation by Michael Jackson (all of which was settled by a lawyer, he says), the B-side of the music composed for the African Cup of Nations, and the first gold record of an African artist in the United States, he preferred to talk about the mixing of cultures, tolerance and peace. 

He was the first African to play in the famous Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York, and he returned forty years later to play to a full house for his greatest joy. We travel from Paris, to Brazzaville, Kinshasa, Abidjan, Rio de Janeiro and a little hop in the Sarthe in the village of Saint-Calais where he arrived alone at college. 

He insisted on the importance of transmitting the history of African culture and loved the mix of musical genres. In Rio, in the most beautiful hall, he played with the National Orchestra of Brazil. 

The joyful, moving images and the magical music of Manu Dibango make this documentary a little gem that should not be missed. 

Manu Dibango had time to see this tribute film before he died of the coronavirus on March 24, 2020. The editing of the film remained as it was.  He said, “We arrive naked, we leave naked, in between it’s good to have fun”.

Julie(en 12 chapitres), by Joachim Trier



Oslo, nowadays. Julie is a resourceful young woman, but at 30 years old, after having tried her hand at medicine, psychology and photography, she is still looking for her way. Although happy with Aksel, a successful, loving and protective cartoonist, she refuses the child he desires.

Julie(en 12 chapitres), is divided into 12 chapters, a prologue and an epilogue of unequal length, showing the progression of the heroine’s personal life through a few events, situations, conversations and significant facts.


The film

The Norwegian title, Verdens verste menneske, in Bokmål, which means The Worst Person in the World, would perhaps be more appropriate in French, even if it is less commercial.

Julie is not the worst person in the world for others, but she is the worst person for herself. She doesn’t know what she wants and lives in her own world, changing studies as she changes men, out of boredom, a boredom that she cheats on with alcohol, parties and escaping from conflicts.

The film begins like a Woody Allen (the couple, friends, and jazz to accompany everything) to then focus more on her desires and especially our time. Joachim Trier speaks to us about ecology, commitment, the passage of time and freedom of expression and it is probably this theme that is the strongest, freedom.

Without regret, she moves forward, and the sad woman she photographs on a movie set is no longer, at the end, her counterpart in life but her former self.

Despite some length, the film is beautiful and original, with strong influences of Rohmer and Woody Allen, served by a very beautiful photography and very good actors. The lead actress, Renate Reinsve, received the Best Actress Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The soundtrack is a must-listen, composed by Ola Fløttum.




Invasion, by Simon Kingberg.

We follow characters around the world: a sheriff in a small American town in Texas who is retiring, a Jasa engineer in Japan, a mother and her children, a young English high school student and an American soldier deployed in Afghanistan. 

All of them experience difficult events in their private lives while strange phenomena occur…

The first three episodes are very good and go up in power. The photography is sublime. Jakob Verbruggen directed episodes 1 and 2) and Jamie Payne directed episode 3.

The screenplay by Simon Kinberg and David Weil, starring Golshifteh Farahani, Shiori Kutsuna, Shamier Anderson and Sam Neill

To keep watching.





You season 3, by Greg Berlanti &  Sera Gamble

Adaptation of the first two novels of the literary trilogy of the American author Caroline Kepnes that features the serial killer, Joe Goldberg. The first season adapts the first novel, Perfect, and the second its sequel, The Hidden Bodies. From the third season on, the series features a new story, not adapting the third novel.


In season 3, Joe married Love, who was pregnant. For more calm, they moved to a typical Desperate Housewives suburb. Besides it is a little Desesperate You for the couple. Joe has to deal with fatherhood, and therefore do everything to protect his child. They also have to deal with the cliché suburban couple, Sherry, a gossip monger and her husband Cary, both of whom are into swinging. 

But his urges are still there and boredom is waiting for them both. He falls in love with a neighbor, but his wife notices. The couple does not manage to be in phase. They both go to see a psychologist, Dr. Chandra, played by Ayelet Zurer (Losing Alice, the Shtisels).

But as the calm returns Joe falls in love with the librarian…

In this season that starts slowly but ends in madness, the writers have drawn a portrait of our contemporary time without concession, very realistic on madness, childhood, couple, parenthood, violence against women, homosexuality, fantasies, commitment, the look of others and life in a closed circle. The actresses and actors are frighteningly believable. 

You has been renewed for a fourth season.



H24, by Nathalie Masduraud & Valérie Urrea

Conceived and directed by Nathalie Masdurand and Valérie Urrea, the writing of H24 brought together no less than 24 women authors.

Each of them took on a subject and wrote the script for an episode, conceived as a 3.5-minute short film.

Among them are Agnès Desarthe, Lydie Salvayre, Chloé Delaume, Alice Zeniter, Christiane Taubira, Aloïse Sauvage, Anne Pauly, Myriam Leroy, Lola Lafon…

24 actresses interpret each one with their personality a text and lend their voice to the anonymous ones, of which:
Diane Kruger, Camille Cottin, Anaïs Demoustier, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Souheila Yacoub, Florence Loiret Caille, Garance Marillier, Galatea Bellugi, Deborah Lukumuena, Noémie Merlant…

Unique in its form and content, this series manages to address all the violence against women in our society today.

Some episodes, because of the narration or the acting, are stronger than others.

To see and especially to share.




The Dry, by Robert Connolly


In Australia, federal police inspector Aaron Falk returns to his hometown, which he left twenty years earlier, to attend the funeral of a childhood friend, Luke. Luke allegedly killed his wife and child before committing suicide in despair over the drought that has plagued the area for years. Aaron struggles to believe that this is the real reason for these deaths and begins an investigation.

It also rekindles old wounds, related to the death of young Ellie Deacon, years earlier. Aaron believes that the two crimes are related.


The film

Adapted from the best-selling novel by author Jane Harper, Canicule takes place in Australia, during a period of extreme drought in a small town where everything is known but nothing is said.

Between investigation and flashback, this thriller is more interested in the hero than in the investigation itself. The photography is magnificent. Eric Bana knows how to incarnate this tormented man who doesn’t let anything of his anguish show despite emotions that oscillate between cold anger and great sadness.

My Salinger year, on November 2, by Philippe Falardeau

Starring Margaret Qualley, Sigourney Weaver, and Douglas Booth

New York in the 90s: After leaving graduate school to pursue her dream of becoming a writer, Joanna (Margaret Qualley) gets hired as an assistant to Margaret (Sigourney Weaver), the stoic and old-fashioned literary agent of J. D. Salinger. Fluctuating between poverty and glamour, she spends her days in a plush, wood-panelled office – where dictaphones and typewriters still reign and agents doze off after three-martini lunches – and her nights in a sink-less Brooklyn apartment with her socialist boyfriend.

Joanna’s main task is processing Salinger’s voluminous fan mail, but as she reads the heart-wrenching letters from around the world, she becomes reluctant to send the agency’s impersonal standard letter and impulsively begins personalizing the responses. The results are both humorous and moving, as Joanna, while using the great writer’s voice, begins to discover her own.
