Women Make Waves International Film Festival
Created in 1993, the Women Make Waves International Film Festival celebrates its 30th anniversary in France, the cradle of cinema and feminism, at the Forum des images from September 19 to October 8!
30 women directors from different generations are in the spotlight, with fiction, documentary, animation and experimental films.
At a time when the international situation remains tense and Taiwan’s place is more crucial than ever in the global geopolitical balance, it’s the perfect time to present the diversity of its faces through 30 films directed by women.
Eight of them, along with festival members, will accompany their films and take part in two round-table discussions.
She came to me, Rebecca Miller, with Anne Hathaway, Marisa Tomei, Peter Dinklage.
ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT FILMS & SERIES
Toni en famille, Nathan Ambrosioni
With Camille Cottin, Léa Lopez, Thomas Gioria, Louise Labèque, Oscar Pauleau, Juliane Lepoureau.
Antonia, known as Toni, brings up her five children alone. It’s a full-time job. She also sings in bars in the evenings, because she has to feed her family. Toni has talent. She recorded a hit single. But that was 20 years ago.
Now her two eldest children are preparing to go to university. So Toni wonders: what will she do when all her offspring have left home? At 43, is there still time to get on with her life?
A modern film
Nathan Ambrosioni is twenty-four, but he’s been making films for eleven years.
So we shouldn’t be surprised by the maturity of Toni en famille, or by its modernity.
The modernity of the dialogue, the subjects tackled and the children’s reactions, as well as his vision of the mother, which is rarely mentioned and often not so subtly (with the exception of Éric Gravel’s recent À temps plein).
Camille Cottin plays remarkably well, and if you get the impression that this role was made for her, well, it’s because it was.
Nathan Ambrosioni wrote this character of an overworked woman who gives her all and is looking for a profession to fulfil herself for the actress we all discovered in Call my agent, but who already played her comic character in La Connasse very well.
The mother-daughter and mother-son relationships are very well seen. The music is a delight in this film, which also pays tribute to the fallen stars of singing competitions. It also speaks to us of the love of art, but the kind we choose, not the kind that is imposed on us.
Nathan Ambrosioni has certainly found his voice. Go and see this moving and subtle film.
66-5, Anne Landois (Engrenages).
Roxane works as a lawyer in a prestigious Paris law firm. Her life is turned upside down the day her husband Samuel is accused of rape. She is forced to return to Bobigny, to the housing estate where she grew up, which she had to leave fifteen years earlier.
With only four episodes available online on the encrypted channel, the 66-5 series (a reference to the secrecy of the legal profession) created by Anne Landois, the brilliant creator of Engrenages (for which she won an Emmy Award), is thrilling every week.
A lot happens to Roxane, brilliantly played by Alice Isaaz, who was bullied as a child and has managed to extricate herself from the suburbs of Bobigny and work for a major Parisian law firm.
But she can’t. Her husband, accused of rape, takes her back to her origins.
Can you really let go the past? That’s the question Anne Landois asks us in this series, which is both a detective story (an investigation) and an in-depth look at women.

FILMS IN MOVIE THEATERS AS OF SEPT 27TH
Le Procès Goldman, Cédric Kahn
November 1975 saw the start of the second trial of Pierre Goldman, a far-left activist who had been sentenced in the first instance to life imprisonment for four armed robberies, one of which resulted in the death of two pharmacists. Claiming his innocence in the latter case, he became an icon of the intellectual left in the space of a few weeks.
Georges Kiejman, a young lawyer, took up his defense. But their relationship soon became strained. Goldman, elusive and provocative, risked the death penalty, making the outcome of the trial uncertain.
The Creator, Gareth Edwards (“Rogue One,” “Godzilla”)
In the near future, humans and artificial intelligence (AI) fight a merciless war. As an American soldier undercover in Asia, Joshua is tasked with tracking down an AI-created weapon and destroying it. But he discovers that the weapon in question is none other than a 6-year-old girl.
Nouveau départ, Philippe Lefebvre – Avec Franck Dubosc, Karin Viard, Clotilde Courau
Alain is as much in love with Diane as the day he met her. Even the departure of his children was a blessing. Diane less…. She enters this period with the feeling that she could die of boredom or anxiety.
Who said that living with a disability meant giving up on your biggest dreams? Across the world, Pascal Plisson went to meet Xavier, Charles, Antonio, Maud, Nirmala and Khendo, extraordinary children who will prove that love, inclusive education, humor and courage can move mountains.
Fanny and Jean have all the makings of an ideal couple: fulfilled in their professional lives, they live in a magnificent apartment in the beautiful districts of Paris and seem to be as much in love as on the first day. But when Fanny runs into Alain, an old high school friend, she’s immediately smitten. They soon see each other again…

Replay M6: Un silence si bruyant
Directed by Anastasia Mikova & Emmanuelle Béart, “Un Silence si bruyant” is a powerful and edifying documentary about incest. Constructed as an initiatory journey by the two directors, the film gives voice to four victims of childhood sexual violence, while revealing Emmanuelle Béart’s personal journey.
These powerful and sometimes unbearably true testimonies deal with the subject of child abuse in an incredibly fair and discreet way, and contribute to the liberation of speech in a unique way.
This film lifts the veil on a crime that affects all walks of life and all socio-professional categories. It’s a sensitive, fair and intimate journey.
