Barbie, by Greta Gerwig


Asteroid city, Wes Anderson



The Forum des images honors one of the most filmed cities in the history of cinema: Los Angeles.

An essential territory of the 7th art, the city of angels feeds multiple imaginations.

A reservoir of dreams and fantasies, between violence and glamour, it is familiar to the moviegoer. But what do we know about the real city?

From April 12 to July 6, 80 films, 9 cinema classes, “pop” screenings and a photo exhibition constitute a temporal and geographical journey to the heart of its myths and the reality of its districts.

Accompanied by numerous guests, including filmmakers David Robert Mitchell and Laura Gabbert (City of Gold), Academy Museum Associate Director K.J. Relth-Miller, storyboarder Sylvain Despretz, and film course instructors, this rich program paints a contrasting and contemporary portrait of Los Angeles, a world city between desert and ocean.

le cinema de Marie Josephe

Le cinéma de Marie-Josèphe, Jil Servant


Special programming on the France Télévisions Overseas channels for the 76th edition of the Cannes Film Festival

Le cinéma de Marie-Josèphe – Unpublished – On the channels of the La 1ère Network and


Marie-Josèphe Yoyotte is a reference in her field, from the 1950s to the 2000s.

She has contributed, through her work as an editor, to the editing of films in our collective memory such as Les Quatre Cents Coups by François Truffaut, Rue Cases-Nègres by Euzhan Palcy or Moi, un Noir by Jean Rouch.

This native of Martinique will have touched all cinematographic genres and will have even known how to adapt to the digital revolution.


With determination and an open mind, she accompanied the beginnings of the New Wave while supporting all the developments of French cinema.


She received three César awards for best editing: in 1977 for Alain Corneau’s Police Python 357, in 1997 with Florence Ricard for Microcosmos and in 2002 for Le Peuple migrateur by Jacques Perrin, Jacques Cluzaud and Michel Debats.

Through the testimonies of editors and directors with whom she has worked, and excerpts from the films she has edited, Jil Servant takes us to the heart of the editor’s craft, the very essence of film writing.

Although he never met her, because she died in 2017, he manages to convey to us the passion that animated her, her curiosity and her permanent will to learn.


Showing up, Kelly Reichardt



Before the opening of an upcoming exhibition, Lizzie, an artist, finds her daily life and her relationship with others as well as her chaotic life become her inspiration.



This week, I accidentally watched two films in which the heroines were in search of recognition.

In Showing up, Lizzie is totally dedicated to her art – sculpture – and spends hours thinking about creating women who will emerge from the clay for an exhibition. The deadlines are tight, she is stressed. Especially since her neighbor, who is the same age as her and to whom she pays the rent, is also an artist, whose exhibition is much more prestigious.

Lizzie also has a job as a secretary in an artist training school where her mother works and has to deal with her dysfunctional family on a regular basis.

One day, her cat, the only living thing she can stand, brings her an injured pigeon. Just when she thinks she’s gotten rid of it, her neighbor picks it up the next day, nurses it back to health and…asks her to take care of it. At first annoyed by the bird, she gradually becomes attached to it…while dealing with her daily life, which must be, at all costs, creative in an efficient way.

Kelly Reichardt wrote this film with Jonathan Raymond (her writing partner) after filming several sculptors at work for five hours.

In this film, the women don’t talk about men with each other, nor are the male characters very glorious. All that matters is the creation and how the art market affects the artists and the confidence they can have in their ability.

Lizzie and her neighbor Joe are neighbors, they don’t like each other (they don’t do the same things at all) but they respect each other as artists.

The beauty of this film lies in its slowness, its poetry, but also in this desire to create which is nourished by repetition and of course everything that revolves around art, the students, the learning, the freedom that it gives and that it takes.

Too bad that, apart from the pigeon, the dramatic stakes are not more developed, the film is original but it lacks tension that Lizzie’s arguments with her family do not provide.


In theaters now.



Misanthrope, Damián Szifrón



On New Year’s Eve in Baltimore City, a police officer with a troubled past is recruited by the FBI’s chief investigator to try to build a psychological profile of the serial killer terrorizing the city. The duo wants to catch the dangerous psychopath before he claims any more victims.



Another film, another woman. In this film co-written with Jonathan Wakeham, it is also about recognition.

Eleanor is an average police agency with the flair of the best profilers you’d see in Mindhunter series (on Netflix) and reminds us of Clarice (played by Jodie Foster), from The Silence of the Lambs.

Eleanor, insecure, fights her demons every night and struggles with the constant stress that consumes her. Her personality and her clairvoyance attract the attention of Lammarck, the federal agent in charge of the investigation.

The first minutes of the movie remind me of “Saving Private Ryan”. We are breathless.

Filmed at night, in the city, between the immense towers of Baltimore (the film was mostly shot in Montreal), the classicism of the detective story comes into play, but the action scenes generate a tension that few films of the genre manage.

The main and secondary characters are well constructed and the film is consistent with its time.

Thus evoked, weapons, mass killings (another one recently occurred in Texas), veganism, and politics at the heart of everything, even investigations supposed to protect citizens (we think of Jaws, in the second part, the mayor is still in office 😉 .

Shailene Woodley (also a producer) perfectly embodies this tortured woman, who seeks truth and recognition without compromise.With her played Ben Mendelsohn the role of the agent forced to compromise himself to keep his investigation, and to do justice at all costs.

This film is exciting until the end.

A must see!

About Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley began her acting career in 2002, at the age of 11, playing small roles in the series FBI: Missing Persons and Washington Police.

She was revealed in the early 2010s by the independent films The Descendants (2010), The Spectacular Now (2013) and Our Opposite Stars (2014) and the science fiction trilogy Divergent (2014-2016), in the role of Tris Prior. From 2017 to 2019, she played one of the main roles in the series Big Little Lies, alongside Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.


Also starring Jovan Adepo, Ralph Ineson.

In theaters now.


Firefly Lane, Maggie Friedman



Tully Hart (Katherine Heigl), is the famous talk show host of The Girlfriend Hour.

She has been best friends with Kate Mularkey (Sarah Chalke) since they were fourteen.

Kate is going through a divorce and is trying to balance her relationship with her teenage daughter, Marah (Yael Yurman), with her job search.

The series follows their lives, from their teenage years in the 1970s, to their beginnings in the working world as aspiring journalists in the 1980s, to the early 2000s, when Tully became a famous newscaster and Kate gave up her career to be a stay-at-home mom and try to become a writer.


The series based on the novel Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah takes us for two seasons in a This is Us way (three eras in each episode) into the lives of these two women who swear to be friends for life (Toujours là pour toi, is the title in French) from their teenage years.

Their friendship will be put to the test, life certainly good enough about it, but theirs will remain indestructible. Mix of soap opera and comedy, the series also follows the history of the United States and the development of the media, the evolution of morals and what it is to be a woman at all times. 

It values all women, those who feel guilty for having been “only” mothers and those who have made a career without having children, the good mothers and the bad ones.

This series also highlights friendship, a feeling bigger and stronger than many love stories and is worth watching until the end.

Both seasons are available on Netflix. Get your tissues ready.
