Petite Nature, Samuel Theis

Synopsis

Johnny, a 10-year-old blond boy, stands out from the crowd. He doesn’t seem to fit in with his mother, who is courageous and caring but has a troubled love life, or with the new housing project they have just moved into. When Mr. Adamski returns to his class, someone finally recognizes his potential and encourages him.

 

A true story mixed with fiction

After co-directing “Party Girl” (Caméra d’or at Cannes in which the director cast his family), Samuel Theis returns to Lorraine to tell the captivating story of the complex experiences of a charismatic child.

Since its premiere on the Croisette, “Petite nature” has already won several awards, including best film at the Thessaloniki and Montreal festivals.

In this film inspired by his childhood, the director cleverly studies the different issues of looking at oneself and others, through a mutual contemplation of two worlds, two opposing social classes.

Samuel Theis and his brilliant actor Antoine Reinartz, (120 beats per minute) came to present the film at the cinema Le Balzac.

He remembers his anger as a child and his desire to flee this place, which with the cinema brings him back to this childhood and this territory that he finds today appeased and that he managed to film with a realism neither voyeur nor complacent.

 

Great actors

In “Petite Nature”, it is a matter of social classes but also of the status of the child and that of the adult, and of this notion of responsibility that one acquires afterwards and that separates us from childhood.

The young Alyosha Reinert (who plays Johnny) is sensational. He has been dancing for ten years and it shows so much he already knows how to use his body in front of the camera.

A mixture of professional and non-professional actors, the mother is in reality a cleaning lady and the director shows us courageous women who are not resigned.

This beautiful film took ten years to write, two years to cast, three months to shoot, and three years to post-produce.

Go see it, it is a very beautiful film, true and very accurate on our time.

In theaters.

 

 

Son of the South Barry Alexander Brown

Synopsis

In 1961 Alabama, Bob Zellner, grandson of a Ku Klux Klan member, is confronted with the endemic racism of his own culture. Influenced by the thoughts of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, he defies his family and Southern norms to take up the fight for civil rights in the United States.

 

The film

Barry Alexander Brown is not only the editor of all Spike Lee’s films, he is also a documentary filmmaker and this is evident in this adaptation of Bob Zellner’s book, “The Wrong Side of Murder Creek: A White Southerner in the Freedom Movement”.

Bob Zellner, who is still alive, advised the director on the events he witnessed, and some of the phrases used in the film were actually spoken by the protagonists of that time.

An incredible story, this film shot on the very scene of the events in Montgomery (Alabama) is worth its documentary aspect (everything is filmed and reconstructed in the same way) but it sometimes lacks emotion.

Shot in only twenty-five days, some scenes were made with little means.

For example, during the Freedom Riders riot in 1961 (the crowd rushed on the peace demonstrators to beat them to death without the police intervening), the director had to ask the extras to move because he didn’t have enough.

Alas still relevant today, the director invites us to make choices and never remain neutral.

 

In theaters today. 

 

With  Lucas Till, Lucy Hale, Brian Dennehy, Shamier Anderson, Sharonne Lannier, Lex Scott Davis, Lucas Till, Cedric The Entertainer.
