ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT FILMS & SERIES IN THEATERS & AT HOME
Tout Le Monde Aime Jeanne, Céline Devaux
Everyone has always loved Jeanne. Today, she hates herself. Over-indebted, she has to go to Lisbon and sell her mother’s apartment, which disappeared a year ago. At the airport, she meets Jean, a whimsical and somewhat invasive former high school classmate.
A story of grief and silence
Between comedy and animation, Tout le Monde Aime Jeanne is a feel-good movie.
Céline Devaux, scriptwriter, director and illustrator, has created a small animated character, the heroine’s inner voice, which we know well. It is this voice that tells us what to do or not to do, prevents us from moving forward or on the contrary motivates us.
This character is crucial in the film and his interventions punctuate the story of Jeanne’s life.
Jeanne and her brother lost their mother who lived in Lisbon and committed suicide. Since then, Jeanne has been striving to become the perfect woman. As the director of a research center, she helped create a device that would absorb plastic from the oceans. But her experiment was a failure and she became over-indebted.
So she goes to Lisbon to sell her mother’s apartment. But she cannot accept it. Everything gets in the way: her memories, her mischievous voice, her encounter with a man (Jean!) who was in her school and who is obviously still in love with her.
Laurent Lafitte and Blanche Gardin form this lovely duo in this film that deals in a gentle way with mourning and suicide in our era of injunctions on our daily lives that emanate from everywhere but against which we feel powerless and therefore anxious, even unhappy. And the inhabitants of Lisbon suffer from the development of mass tourism.
In silence, her wanderings in Lisbon, denial of her own condition, procrastination (tidying up the apartment), nightly visits from her mother (Marthe Keller), Jeanne tries to cope.
Blanche Gardin, restrained in this role, remains as funny as ever and her complicity with Laurent Lafitte is delightful.
Go see this film in theaters since a week. You won’t regret it!

At age 14, young orphan Catherine marries into the 16th century French court. Despite her status as a commoner, her uncle, Pope Clement has negotiated a substantial dowry and geopolitical alliance in exchange for the union, and with it, the expectation of many heirs. However, on her wedding night, Catherine discovers that her husband is in love with Diane de Poitiers, a beautiful lady-in-waiting twice her age.
This is an adaptation of the British novel Catherine de Medici: Renaissance Queen of France by Leonie Frieda.
