ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT  FILMS & SERIES IN THEATERS & AT HOME

 

My Name is Gulpilil, Molly Reynolds

 

Synopsis

With David Gulpilil

Ripped from the Australian bush as a young boy, David Gulpilil will become the first Aboriginal icon on the silver screen.

Divided between the traditions of his people and the excesses of Hollywood, the multi-talented actor and dancer tells us about the extraordinary journey that has been his life.

 

About the film

 

He wanted his funeral to last at least six or seven days. David Gulpilil will not be forgotten.

For two hours, in this film he also produced, David Gulpilil speaks to us. 

Diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, Australia’s most iconic actor, with a career that lasted more than 50 years, tells us about his life, his illness, the movies and at the heart of his life, his roots.

He is the only actor to have performed in the two highest grossing Australian films of all time: “Australia” and “Crocodile Dundee.”.

Molly Reynolds, who knew him for a long time, filmed him for three years.

Discovered at the age of 16 to play in the film Walkabout by Nicholas Roeg, he must choose a White name. He chose David because of an image of the character in the Bible.

Walkabout is the story of a young sister and brother abandoned in the Australian bush who must learn to fend for themselves in the wild.

 

David Gulpilil paves the way for stories written for Aborigines. He then played in “Storm boy” by Henri Safran. 

 

He won the Best Actor Award in the “Un certain regard” selection in 2014 for “Charlie’s country” which he co-wrote directed by Rolf de Heer

Dining with the Queen on several occasions, meeting John Lennon, Michael Jackson, smoking ganja with Bob Marley, getting drunk with Denis Hopper with whom he often ends up in jail, David Gulpilil remains a man who is rooted to his land.

Like in Countryman movie, played by Edwin Lotham, the Jamaican fisherman who lives in the wilderness, which he co-wrote. David Gulpilil fishes for water snakes, dances around the fire, hunts kangaroos. 

The narration of his life sometimes seems incomprehensible, redundant, because of his disease and because he mixes poetry with it and repeats over and over again his love of nature, of his origins.

With Rolf de Heer, he made the first film in the Australian native language, Ten Canoes: 

He was also very funny and his one man shows were a great success. 

Molly Reynolds succeeded in bringing  this unusual character to the screen, “surreal”, as she says so well.

 

David Gulpilil ​died on November 29, 2021.

Revoir Paris, Alice Winocour

 

Synopsis

À Paris, Mia est prise dans un attentat dans une brasserie.
Trois mois plus tard, alors qu’elle n’a toujours pas réussi à reprendre le cours de sa vie et qu’elle ne se rappelle de l’évènement que par bribes,
Mia décide d’enquêter dans sa mémoire pour retrouver le chemin d’un bonheur possible.

 

About the film

As the trial of the Nice attack opens, “Revoir Paris”, so sadly relevant today, reminds us of painful memories.

This film is the story of a reconstruction, that of Mia, brilliantly played by Virginie Efira, very true in her performance, that of the victims of terrorism and Paris, a character in the film.

During the whole film, Mia rides a Triumph through Paris wearing a leather jacket, kind of a second skin she was wearing during the attack.

Alice Winocour manages to film the unbearable, the terrorist attack of November 13, in a Parisian brasserie. After the first twenty minutes, it’ s pitch black, oblivion. 

Then six months later, Mia returned to the scene. She tries to reconstruct her memory. What happened during the shooting?  Memories emerge, like flashes, reminiscent of David Cronenberg’s “Dead Zone”, with Christopher Walken, where the character has premonitory flashes.

Mia is looking for a new meaning to her life.  There is, as psychiatrists call it, the notion of “diamond in the heart of the trauma”, that is to say, the unusual relationships forged at the time of the tragedy.

 

Before the terrorist attack, in the restaurant, she looked in Thomas’ eyes  (brilliant Benoît Magimel). Is a story between them possible? 

In a relationship with Vincent (Grégoire Colin, starring in Claire Denis’ Avec Amour et Acharnement), she distances herself from this relationship, which breaks down in spite of them.

Alice Winocour was inspired by the memories of her brother who was at the Bataclan on November 13 and his account of the days following the terrorist attack.

She also visited online forums where victims were testifying and looking for people they had been in contact with even for a few seconds at the time of the attack. 

 

“Paris Memories” also gives us another perspective on Paris, the one we all know.

Through Assane character (Amadou Mbow, seen in Mati Diop‘s film “Atlantic”), the director highlights the undocumented personnel who were not counted after the attack because those who survived fled.

Alice Winocour quotes this true sentence: “If the Senegalese, the Malians and the Sri Lankans went on strike, we could not eat in Paris”. 

In a few scenes, everything is said about this misery that is displayed in Paris and against which nothing is done. Rented out by the day like slaves, they are constantly on the move, at the mercy of an arrest that would send them back to the country they have fled.

 

Filming began shortly after the start of the November 13 trial. 

Alice Winocour says”When we were shooting certain scenes like the flower scene in tribute to the victims, passersby were moved, so much so that we had to post large “shooting” signs to avoid confusion.”

Next to me, a couple who had no doubt lived through the attacks were regularly hugging each other.

I can only advise you to go see this fair and strong film, without a doubt the best of this early September.

 

Today September 7th, in theaters.

 

 

Lord of the Rings : The Rings of Power, John D. Payne, Patrick McKay

 

 

Synopsis

The Rings of Power series begins during a period of relative peace and covers all the major events that occurred in Middle-earth during the Second Age: the creation of the Rings of Power, the history of the island kingdom of Númenor, the rise of Sauron, and the final alliance between Elves and Men.

 

The series

 

More than 25 million people is said to have watched the first episode of the series “The Rings of Power” since its release.

Amazon paid no less than $250 million to buy the rights, and another $465 million was spent on the first season alone. The group has committed to five seasons, so the final sum should be well over a billion. (source: “Stratégies”).

Two episodes are online on the platform.

Apart from the creatures, we do not really find the universe of Tolkien. The acting is average, the story a little caricatured.
But the setting and the two heroines are good enough to want to know more about their adventures.

The cult trilogy of Tolkien had already been adapted to the cinema by Peter Jackson and had won eleven Oscars. 

A series to follow, but not as strong as “House of The Dragon”, also a fantasy and anthology series, currently available on HBO, OCS and Canal Plus.

 

Currently on Amazon Prime. One episode every Friday.

The Serpent Queen, September 11, by Justin Haythe

An original historical drama that offers a contemporary twist on conventional storytelling to tell the story of Catherine de Medici’s (Samantha Morton) rise to power. In the beginning of the series, Catherine’s story unfolds through flashbacks as she defends her actions and passes on the lessons she has learned to her new servant, Rahima (Sennia Nanua, “The Girl with All the Gifts, Frankie”).

At age 14, young orphan Catherine (Liv Hill, “Three Girls,” “Jellyfish”) marries into the 16th century French court. Despite her status as a commoner, her uncle, Pope Clement (Charles Dance, “Game of Thrones,” “The Crown”), 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 (Ludivine Sagnier, “Lupin,” “The Young Pope”), a beautiful lady-in-waiting twice her age.

With a suddenly uncertain future and little hope of conceiving a child, Catherine must quickly learn who she can trust – both in her personal entourage of courtiers and among members of the royal court – while outwitting those who underestimate her determination to survive no matter the cost.

This is an adaptation of the British novel Catherine de Medici: Renaissance Queen of France by Leonie Frieda.
