ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT FILMS & SERIES
Une année difficile, Eric Toledano, Olivier Nakache
Albert and Bruno are over-indebted and at the end of their tether, and it’s on the associative path they’re taking together that they come across a group of young environmental activists. More attracted by beer and free chips than by their arguments, they gradually join the movement without conviction…
This comedy, previewed at the UGC Maillot, is a pure delight.
Once again, the filmmakers take on a subject very much in tune with our times: overconsumption and climate change.
As usual, their writing makes all the characters endearing, even those with the biggest flaws.
The actors have a blast, and so do we.
Political, hilarious, moving, this is, in my opinion, their most successful and accomplished film.
In these difficult times, go and see it, you won’t regret it.
In cinemas today.
With Noémie Merlant, Pio Marmaï and Jonathan Cohen.
Lessons in chemistry, Lee Eisenberg
In the 1950s, Elizabeth Zott dreams of becoming a scientist. She is challenged by a society that considers women to belong only in the domestic sphere. She accepts a job on a cooking show.
A best-seller published in 2022, the novel by author and science journalist Bonnie Garmus, the series created by Lee Eisenberg aptly captures the macho era of the ’50s.
Elizabeth Zott, brilliantly played by Brie Larson, embodies the discriminated women of that era, as well as sexual violence and total objectification. A few men are exceptions to the rule, but dramatic circumstances prevent Elizabeth Zott from getting ahead in a scientific environment then reserved for men.
This highly polished series is reminiscent of Mad Men at times, with fabulous aesthetics, costumes and sets.
This woman’s story is fascinating, so don’t miss Lessons in Chemistry.
Also starring Aja Naomi King, Lewis Pullman, Kevin Sussman, Stephanie Koenig, Patrick Walker.
2 episodes on October 13, then 1 episode every Friday.
On Canal + and AppleTV.

ARTE ‘ FILMS & SERIES AS OF OCT 18TH
Cléo from 5 to 7
A young woman wanders the streets of Paris, haunted by death… Between gravity and lightness, a subtly feminist film emblematic of the Nouvelle Vague, set to music by Michel Legrand and signed by Agnès Varda.
Lions Love (and lies…)
In May 1968, Agnès Varda was in Los Angeles with Jacques Demy, who had come to film “Model Shop”. The filmmaker decided to film the effervescence taking hold of California: the birth of the counter-culture, the rejection of the Vietnam War, “flower power”, the hippie movement… With, in their own roles, Viva, Shirley Clarke, Eddie Constantine.
Women’s health: from ignorance to recognition, Ursula Duplantier & Marta Schröer
Wrong diagnoses, inappropriate treatments, persistent shortcomings in higher education… The medical field, whose benchmark remains the male body, still too often neglects the physiological particularities of women.
Through a rigorous analysis of over 175 film extracts, Nina Menkes shows that a systemic sexism guides the representation of women in cinema. Is the seventh art “the common language of rape culture”?
Freedom, equality, sisterhood
In preparation for a conference, a group of feminists selected by an association meet for the first time. Ideological divisions, explosive debates and unforeseen affinities will make for a lively weekend. A humorous reflection on activism and intersectionality.
Sous contrôle, by Charly Delwart, with Léa Drucker
Promoted to Minister of Foreign Affairs, a respected NGO director discovers how diplomacy and politics are played out in the real world. A political comedy series, Sous contrôle features a joyful Léa Drucker as an idealistic leading lady confronted with the exercise of power, the codes of which she is unfamiliar with.
Total Control, from October 19
Seeking to exploit the popularity of an indigenous activist, Australia’s Prime Minister unleashes a war of power in which no holds are barred. In the vein of “Borgen”, a thrilling series that delves into the inner workings of democracy.
In the Australian town of Winton, Alexandra Irving, an aboriginal activist, succeeds in stopping a maniac who was shooting women in the street, and finds herself in the spotlight. Rachel Anderson, the Prime Minister, entrusts Jonathan Cosgrove, her advisor, with the mission of convincing this heroine to run for a seat in the Senate. Meanwhile, Jess Clarke, an Aboriginal teenager, escapes from a detention center after witnessing the death of her cellmate. Faced with Alexandra’s refusal, Rachel, challenged within her own party, decides to meet the young woman…
