ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT FILMS & SERIES IN THEATERS & AT HOME
The eyes of Tammy Faye, Michael Showalter
With Jessica Chastain, Andrew Garfield.
In the 1970s, Tammy Faye and her husband Jim Bakker were a huge success. Their televangelist program The PTL Club, launched in 1974, was a triumph until 1989, when her husband was accused of a sex scandal
Jessica Chastain just won an Oscar for the Best Actress for her role in this film available on Disney Plus.
Shouldn’t Oscar-winning films be required to be released in theaters?
This film tells a part of the history of the United States that we Europeans know little, that of the evangelists and the most famous of them, Tammy Faye, played by Jessica Chastain and Jim Bakker, played by Andrew Garfield (seen recently in the excellent Tik, Tik Boom available on Netflix).
Adapted from the documentary The Eyes of Tammy Faye released in 2000 by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato.
The film recalls Tammy’s childhood and her meeting with Jim, with whom she falls in love.
Of course, in the beginning, she backs him and does everything to make her husband, already a crook, famous. Both of them advocate a modern, joyful faith, but above all what attracted Jim is the lure of gain.
A powerful woman
Then, she reveals herself, starts to sing and becomes as famous as her husband and more loved by the public who perhaps feels more her sincerity.
Modern and free, she defends the rights of homosexuals and fights against the televangelist churches and supports them when AIDS begins. Even today, she is close to the LGBTQ community.
Masterful, Jessica Chastain is unrecognizable, not because she plays very well, (she always does) but because she is physically transformed. Like Gary Oldman as Churchill, she spent several hours every day in makeup to look like Tammy.
Powerful, a touching, independent woman, and the actress makes us love her character, who loved people as much as prayers.
The only regret is to have seen it on a small screen.
Currently on Disney Plus.
Kamikaze, Kaspar Munk
Script: Johanne Algren
Until then rich and famous, Julie sees her destiny change when her brother and parents die in a plane crash on her 18th birthday.
Inspired by the novel Muleum by Norwegian writer Erlend Loe, Kamikaze, a Danish series, navigates between her life before the death, her life after the accident and all the events that led her to this moment.
It speaks to us of transmission, passion, love and memory.
On her phone, the last words received by text message from her father are “The plane is going to crash. We love you. Do whatever you want. Dad”.
Julie (Marie Reuther), a famous fashion influencer, is the beloved daughter of the family, her father’s favorite, her mother’s and brother’s accomplice.
The day her entire family dies in a plane crash in Rwanda, Julie finds herself alone in her huge, luxurious house with Krzysztof (Aleksandr Kuznetsov), a Polish worker who is busy finishing laying blue tiles in an indoor pool.
Despite friends and the help of a shrink, her despair never leaves her. Julie lies to others, lies to herself, caught in a grief like a trap.
A journey of despair
Julie seeks to die…in a thousand ways. What if death did not want her?
From Korea to Mexico, Julie tries all kinds of adventures, the most dangerous ones, learns to fly, and survives a crash in the desert… There, as a survivor, she talks to her cell phone, and it is of course to us that she tells her story.
The main actress Marie Reuther is overwhelming. This moving series takes us into another world, that of the impossible mourning, the search for meaning. It
It will take you to the gut until the last minute.
Currently on Canal Plus.
With Marie Reuther, Aleksandr Kuznetsov, Johan Rheborg, Mads Reuther.
