ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT FILMS & SERIES
Flo, Géraldine Danon
Known as “the little fiancée of the Atlantic”, Florence Arthaud was above all a great sailor. Her exceptional list of achievements, unique in the world of men’s sailing, culminated in her victory in the Route du Rhum in 1990.
Yes of no?
Despite a few flaws (too many sex scenes for my taste, but Yann Queffélec is known for his taste for this genre in his novels, cf. Noces Barbares), the biopic is magnificent, an ode to the sea and to Florence Arthaud (played by Stéphane Caillard), feminist, fighter and resilient in the face of all the trials she went through.
The film is inspired by the sailor’s life, but her love affairs – particularly the one she is supposed to have had with Olivier de Kersauson (Alexis Michalik) – didn’t happen, and were imagined, I suppose, to spice up a film that didn’t need it.
Her relationship with her brother Jean-Marie (Pierre Deladonchamps) was very strong.
You can see how her brother is struggling with the film that’s being released today.
Is it a good idea to make fake biopics? That’s another debate.
But Géraldine Danon, who makes nature documentaries for Disney Plus with her partner, renowned sailor Philippe Poupon, knows how to film the sea magnificently.
The best moments are those filmed during the regattas. Stéphane Caillard also gives a beautiful and performance in this role.
An extraordinary woman, for a film that is no less extraordinary.
There are few films about the sea and the women who live and celebrate it. This one comes at just the right moment.
With Stéphane Caillard, Alison Wheeler, Alexis Michalik.
In cinemas today.
Slip, Zoe Lister-Jones
Mae is dissatisfied with her marriage. One day, she meets an attractive young man and begins an affair.
The next morning, Mae wakes up in a parallel reality where she is married to this man.
Confused, she tries to return to her world.
Yes of no?
This series asks the right questions: is it possible to be satisfied in a relationship?
Full of humor, sex and emotion, Zoe Lister-Jones takes us into the life of a woman in search of something that ultimately doesn’t exist.
What’s most important? How can we be happy? Who can fulfill our desires?
The heroine learns the hard way: you don’t have to be rich or famous, and love can be a tough nut to crack!
Currently on view: 7 episodes.
With Zoe Lister-Jones (Mae), Tymika Tafari (Jina).
On Canal Plus & OCS now.

ARTE ‘ FILMS & SERIES AS OF NOVEMBER 1ST
Two women in love
Two straight couples sympathize with each other, until one day a tender inclination develops between the two women…
An important figure in new German cinema, director Rainer Kaufmann cultivates two passions: adapting literary works and playing women who find themselves in inextricable sentimental situations, as in this TV movie.
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.
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.
Total Control, now.
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…
The Enfield Mystery: now.
Based on Britain’s most famous haunted house case of the 1970s, a brilliantly acted miniseries in which fantasy transcends the melancholy of reality.
The events at Enfield, which held the British press spellbound for three years before being recounted in detail in a book by Guy Playfair, inspired the efficient James Wan to release a classic horror film last June (Conjuring 2 – The Enfield Mystery).
This miniseries by Kristoffer Nyholm (who also directed a season of The Killing), on the other hand, subtly plays on social and psychological realism, depicting the relationship between wounded people with melancholy touches.
Polar Park: now.
In France’s coldest village, a writer in crisis finds himself on the trail of a serial killer with a devious imagination, alongside a gendarme who’s a little too Cartesian… A delicious blend of thriller and comedy, a series in the form of a snowy treasure hunt.
With Polar Park, director Gérald Hustache-Mathieu brings back to life the endearing heroes of his film Poupoupidou (2011), a mismatched duo of investigators played by Jean-Paul Rouve and Guillaume Gouix.
