What is a woman ? Par Matt Walsh




Jurassic World Dominion, Colin Trevorrow



Isla Nublar and its park have been destroyed, but the problems are not over. As dinosaurs spread across the world, the strained relationship between the present and the past fuels new conflicts. The fragile balance is tested and the future faces a new direction. It is decided once and for all which species should exist on earth.


About blockbuster

After “Top Gun Maverick” with its amazing stunts but very thin script, comes “Jurassic World Dominion” in theatres today.

The producers can thank Jeff Goldblum and his few funny lines as well as the special effects designers.

The script is there and the premise is pretty good. But the story is completely disjointed and the story goes in all directions. When the end of the film is coming “Jurassic World Dominion” could well go on indefinitely.

So notice to the fans of the genre. Even if we know what we’re going to see when we go to the cinema to see this kind of film, we’d like a little more characterisation in the characters.

In short, it’s good entertainment but when you leave the cinema, you have the impression of having taken a ride on a merry-go-round rather than having seen a filmed story.

Not everyone is Spielberg.

In theatres today.

P.S.: If you live in Paris, go to the UGC Normandie. Guaranteed to be a great show!

Clara Sola, Nathalie Alvarez Mesen



In a remote Costa Rican village, a withdrawn 40-year-old woman sets out to free herself from the repressive religious and social conventions that have dominated her life, leading her to a sexual and spiritual awakening.


Freedom and magical realism


All the magical realism of Latin American literature is contained in this beautiful, modern and transcendent film.

Clara, played by the wonderful Wendy Chinchilla Araya, is a woman who is said to have been visited by the Virgin Mary and has the power to heal others. This gift is a blessing for the region and her mother, allowing her to earn money, but it is also a curse.

Her mother refuses to have her operated on because she has a disease in her back, hands and lungs, claiming that she should not be changed.

Sanctified, Clara must curb her sexual urges or face punishment.

But only one being keeps her going and makes her smile: a white mare, Yuka, who follows her everywhere and, finally, exploited like her, is a bit like her double. When Santiago arrives to help her, her mother and her niece, he intrigues her…

Clara is at one with nature, the forest, the mud and the night. So when a 15th birthday party is organized for her niece, (a South American rite of passage from girl to woman) Clara wants to exist as a woman, but her family won’t let her… Clara is a rebel woman.

Nathalie Alvarez Mesen wanted to show that even in families where there are only women, the codes of patriarchy are unconsciously integrated. Coupled with the religious weight, women cannot have sex outside marriage.


This movie has been released since June 1st.
