Bong Joon-ho tackles animation.

According to« Trois couleurs  the idea came to him from a picture book dedicated to marine creatures: “These creatures live 24 hours a day without the sunlight reaching them. Although they live on the same planet as us, we don’t normally come into contact with them. But in my film, after a certain incident, they get to know humans, and that’s where the story begins.”

“When you’re on board a space station that travels at 28,000 km/h and 50 km in altitude, you circle the Earth in about 90 minutes. We therefore potentially witness sixteen sunrises and sunsets per day.” – Thomas Pesquet

marcher sur l'eau

Marcher sur l’eau, by Aïssa Maïga

Synopsis

In northern Niger, the village of Tatiste, a victim of global warming, also struggles with adults leaving their families each year to go  to have access to water.
Every day, fourteen-year-old Houlaye, like other young people, walks for miles to fetch water, which is essential to the life of the village. This daily task prevents them, among other things, from attending school. The lack of water also forces adults to leave their families each year to go to get water.

 

The film

Both fiction and documentary (some scenes are reconstructed), Marcher sur l’eau  is a magnificent film about the daily life of people who are supportive, courageous and who, every day, struggle to live.

Houlaye, the teenager who takes care of the whole family, gives rhythm to the documentary. Every second of the film gives the impression of being impregnated with the sand that sticks to the faces and skin of the inhabitants, who must constantly protect themselves from it. One understands then how lucky we are not to make any effort to have water. Nothing else is possible in this village, but to get up every day and walk for miles to fetch more or less drinkable water.

Marcher sur l’eau is an essential film.

 

Birth of the project

Producer Yves Darondeau (Bonne Pioche) asked Aïssa Maïga to write a film following scouting trips to West Africa by journalist Guy Lagache. The story of a village community fighting for water in the context of global warming, with the promise of a well.

In fact, she was called by this project. Aïssa Maïga’s paternal grandmother was a Peul from Niger. The actress and director naturally accepted the project.

So she set my sights on the village of Tatiste, in the Azawagh region, which is a 15-hour drive from Niamey, the capital of Niger. The NGO Amman Imman was involved from the beginning of the project. Ariane Kirtley, the director of the NGO Amman Imman (which means “water is life”): she is an anthropologist and knows this region very well. The writing work was done in duo. 

 

Climate change & its consequences

Niger, a semi-desert country in the heart of sub-Saharan Africa, is emblematic of the problem of lack of water but also a source of hope. On the one hand, it has been hit hard by climate change and repeated droughts. On the other hand, it is one of the places in the world where the struggle of rural communities and their inhabitants to solve this problem, with the support of the government, is the most determined and dynamic. 

The Azawak region is a plain of 180,000 square kilometers, located between Mali and Niger, and is home to approximately 500,000 people, mostly ethnic Tuareg and Fulani-Wodaabe. Azawak is characterized by a 99% illiteracy rate and a 98% lack of access to health resources. Insecurity of water supply, linked to climate change, has contributed to the rise in infant mortality rates, which now exceed 50%. 

Africa

The African continent has 660,000 cubic kilometers of water reserves underground. This resource is 100 times greater than the amount of water on the surface. And yet, 330 million Africans, or 40% of the population, do not have access to drinking water. 

According to figures from the African Development Bank, Africa needs to devote the equivalent of 11.5 billion euros per year to create or strengthen distribution and sanitation infrastructures. And if the water exists, some aquifers are buried deep, making any digging project delicate and expensive.

 

Today in theaters.

 

Dopesick, by Danny Strong

Created by Danny Strong, adapted from the book Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drug Company that Addicted America, by Beth Macy.

Synopsis

This eight episodes series tells the story of the launch of OxyContin in the United States. This drug, launched by Purdue Pharma in 1996, was responsible for the wave of overdose deaths (93,000 in the United States in 2020). There are now more overdose deaths annually than gun deaths in the country.

Written by Warren Littlefield (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and Danny Strong, directed by Barry Levinson, Dopesick follows several characters and takes place in a mining community in Virginia where Pharma Purdue cynically sells its painkiller to miners who suffer multiple workplace injuries.

 

The series

Over eight episodes, the series unfolds during a lawsuit against Richard Sackler’s Perdue Pharma for its sale of oxycontin on the U.S. market under the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) label.

With the help of flashbacks, we discover the history of Perdue Pharma and its consequences on the daily life of Americans, effects that are still felt today since, apart from being put into bankruptcy, its founders who knew the implications of Perdue Pharma were not judged guilty of the deaths that resulted from this drug.

To condemn them would be to condemn the American government, which refused for a long time to recognize the danger of the drug, since it had validated it without verifying its dangers.

A drug that causes a stronger dependence than the hardest drugs, to the point of what is called a “dopesick“, oxycontin was therefore sold on the American market with the approval of the American government.

The characters

In the series, we discover the creator of this drug supposed to alleviate all the pains, it is from there that comes the scale of pain from 1 to 10, and the quasi systematic prescription of oxycontin.

Richard Sackler (Michael Stuhlbarg, the Jimmy Baxter of the series Your Honor), the heir of the family at the head of Pharma Purdue, plays this character at once diabolical in a quest for love and family recognition close to madness.

A masterful actor and a tormented character who reminds us of Robert de Niro and Al Pacino from The Godfather 2, Michael Stuhlbarg is extraordinary.

A widowed doctor, Samuel Finnix (great Michael Keaton) who practices in Virginia, is entirely devoted to a community of miners, is the second strongest character of the series.

Samuel Finnix is approached by Billy Cutler, an ambitious young representative of Perdue Pharma, played by William Poulter (the racist policeman Philip Kraus in Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit and seen in the series The Underground Railroad), another charismatic young actor from the Dopesick series.

We also follow an oxycontin victim, Betsy Mallum, a young minor (Kaitlyn Dever seen in the Netflix series Unbelievable) who is being treated by Samuel Finnix and becomes addicted to oxycontin after an accident.

Three vigilantes help us calm our anger at the monstrous consequences of this drug that continues to wreak havoc to this day.

 

The investigation

Bridget Meyer, played by Rosario Dawson, fights to prove to the DEA that the overdoses come from medical prescriptions of oxycontin.

At the same time, two DoJ agents, Rick Mountcastle and Randy Ramseyer (played in the Dopesick cast by Peter Sarsgaard and John Hoogenaker) begin investigating the consequences of OxyContin.

Although Curtis Wright’s name does not appear, his name comes up repeatedly in connection with potential corruption of the FDA executive who approved the aggressive marketing of OxyContin.

Indeed, special attention was paid to a special label issued by the FDA specifically for OxyContin that said:

“Delayed absorption as provided by OxyContin tablets is intended to reduce the risk of drug abuse”.

As shown in the Dopesick series, this label was used by representatives to sell OxyContin as a treatment for moderate pain to skeptical doctors like the one played by Michael Keaton. However, Purdue had conducted no real studies to back up this claim and Wright knew it.

This series is both terrifying and exciting because of the strength of its writing, and it exposes a situation that is still relevant today.

 

Nowadays

The American justice validated, on September 1st, the bankruptcy plan proposed by the Purdue laboratory which provides immunity to the members of the Sackler family, whose pharmaceutical group is accused of having contributed to the opiate crisis.

This agreement provides for the payment of 4.5 billion dollars (3.82 billion euros) to the affected communities. The company will be dissolved to create a new entity whose mission will be to fight the opioid crisis.

For Washington State Attorney Bob Ferguson – who wants to appeal the court’s decision – this plan is a boon for the Sackler family, which has amassed a fortune of more than $11 billion (€9.34 billion) since 2008, and which would gain permanent immunity through this decision while remaining one of the richest families in the United States.

 

The casting

Peter Sarsgaard, is in the next Batman movie The Survivor directed by Barry Levinson.

Michael Keaton, recently seen in Worth on Netflix by Sara Colangelo, will star in Morbius by Daniel Espinosa and The Flash by Andy Muschietti.

 

On Disney Plus on November 12th.

 

 

Finch, by Miguel Sapochnik

Synopsis

Finch, a robotics engineer, wants to make sure that someone will look after his faithful companion after his death. … He creates a robot to watch over Goodyear when he is no longer able to.

 

The movie

As in Cast Away, Tom Hanks proves once again that he can carry a film alone on his shoulders.

In this touching post-apocalyptic story, radiation and the sun have destroyed three-quarters of the planet, only a dog gives meaning to Finch’s life. Sick, he creates a robot that comes to life, a kind of Pinocchio that accompanies him in a lurch towards San Francisco where he would one day find his father.

This very good film, which leaves us a little hungry, puts forward the development of technologies and the importance of exchanges with others, even more than with an animal. Humanity is at the heart of Finch, and Tom Hanks was the right actor to interpret this sad, lonely character who has given up hope for a better future. The dialogue is very good and the robot character is just great.

You should definitely watch it.

My Salinger year, by Philippe Falardeau

Synopsis

New York in the 90s: After leaving graduate school to pursue her dream of becoming a writer, Joanna  gets hired as an assistant to Margaret  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 film

Joanna, while using the great writer’s voice, begins to discover her own path. We find Margaret Qualley, the actress we loved in Maid on Netflix, this time alongside Sigourney Weaver.
True story inspired by the memoirs of Joanna Rakkof, My Salinger Year is a nice movie about finding your way and assuming it no matter what.
Pleasant to watch but lacks strength in the subject. The dialogues and clichés about writing weigh down the film.

 

Starring Margaret Qualley, Sigourney Weaver, and Douglas Booth
