CP CESAR 240124 – Annonce des Nominations de la 49e Ceremonie des Cesar 2024


BACK TO BLACK, Sam Taylor-Johnson with Marisa Abela, Jack O’Connell






Bob Marley: One Love, Reinaldo Marcus Green

Starring Kingsley Ben-Adir, Lashana Lynch, James Norton.

Bob Marley: One Love celebrates the life and music of an icon who inspired generations through his message of love and unity. For the first time on the big screen, discover the powerful story of Bob Marley, his resilience in the face of adversity, and the journey that led him to his revolutionary music.




Reinaldo Marcus Green previously directed the film about the Williams sisters, ‘”KING RICHARD”‘ with Will Smith portraying the famous father of the tennis players.

This time, he tackles a monument: Bob Marley. A mystical and mysterious singer, adored by the entire planet, yet fundamentally little known to us.

Seen at the Grand Rex from the third balcony, the world premiere of the film recalls the Cannes Film Festival where the commoners are relegated to the worst seats, preceded by a dreadful rendition of ‘Could You Be Loved’ by Sofian.

‘Bob Marley: One Love’ begins during the gang warfare raging in Trench Town, Jamaica, in the late 1970s.

After surviving an assassination attempt, he is forced into exile in England where he creates his greatest albums.

Despite the involvement of its lead actor Kingsley Ben Adir, the film fails to depict what Bob Marley could have been. It’s surprising considering it’s produced by his son Ziggy.

Only Lashana Lynch in the role of Rita Marley, his wife, offers us a few rare moments of emotion.

There’s no perspective, and we remain on the surface, akin to reading a Wikipedia page, whereas there was depth in ‘Bird’ or ‘Elvis.’

Yet, the legendary, immortal soundtrack remains.

If you love the reggae star, I recommend watching Kevin Macdonald’s excellent documentary available on the Arte.TV platform instead.





All of us stranger, Andrew Haigh.


With  Andrew Scott, Paul Mescal, Jamie Bell



In London, Adam lives in a tower where most of the apartments are unoccupied. One night, the monotony of his daily life is interrupted by his encounter with a mysterious neighbor, Harry.

As the two men grow closer, Adam is besieged by memories of his past and returns to the suburban town where he grew up.



Seen during the LGBTQA+ Festival Chéries Chéris, ‘All of us strangers” tells a love story between two individuals, set in a strange spatiotemporal reality.

Adam meets Harry in a building where they seem to be the only occupants.

At night, Adam escapes and meets young adults in the suburbs of London who seem to deeply love him, with whom he spends a lot of time, with whom he cries, laughs, and soon wants to introduce his new friend Harry.

Who are they? What connects them to Adam?


Andrew Haigh navigates between past and present and questions us about grief, love, commitment.

What is real? Who exists? How do we love? What makes us feel alive?

This film about love, whose sublime photography enhances our immersion in sadness and pain, is my favorite of the week.

Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal shine. As for Claire Foy, she is, as usual, magnificent.


Now playing in theaters.




“Black Cake”, Marissa Jo Cerar



Adaptation of the eponymous Best-Seller by American-Caribbean author Charmaine Wilkinson, released in early 2022

Eleanor Bennett loses her battle with cancer, leaving her children a flash drive that holds untold stories of her journey from the Caribbean to America; the stories shock her children and challenge everything they know about their family’s origin.



This series, directed by Marissa Jo Cerar (Women of the Movement) and stamped with Oprah Winfrey’s seal of approval, which I binge-watched with my family, has a certain “This is Us” quality.

As a writer for “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “13 Reasons Why,” and the film “Conversion,” the director unquestionably knows how to address violence against women and the LGBTQIA+ communities.

The story of Covey, a woman who changes her name to Eleonore, portrayed by the magnificent Mia Isaac, takes us through various time periods and multiple locations: Jamaica, London, and the United States.

With each episode, new secrets are revealed. What will happen to Covey? And her children? Her best friend?


Regardless of the time period, the characters face racism, homophobia, and violence against minorities, Asians, Blacks, and mixed-race individuals alike.


Touching, captivating, “The Black Cake” is a series that hooks us from the very first episode.

8 episodes

Starring Lashay Anderson, Faith Alabi, Glynn Turman, Ahmed Eljah, Simon Wan, and Sonita Henry

Currently streaming on Disney+.

Thinking about Tomorrow, Olivier Goujon.

Discover agroecology, permaculture, biodynamics, and so much more through the experience and testimony of farmers and associations from all fields and of all ages. How, thanks to their perspectives and love for the Earth, these everyday heroes work every day to build a better world.
