In the wake of its Oscar nomination (best animated film), Encanto arrives on VOD, the opportunity to see or review the latest jewel made in Disney. A success that owes as much to the story as to the visuals. Without forgetting of course the songs created by the brilliant Lin-Manuel Miranda, including the heady “Let’s not talk about Bruno”, which was a hit at the Oscars.
After the sublime Pain and Glory, where he tried his hand at self-portraiture (personal and artistic), Pedro Almodovar hits the mark again with his latest feature film, which tells the parallel destinies of two women who became mothers on the same day. Sacred in Venice, Penelope Cruz shines in her seventh collaboration with the director. And we ask for more.
A trip back 30 years, to the boom of free radio, this first feature, awarded at the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs, tells the story of a young man, Philippe, who falls in love with his brother’s girlfriend. An initiatory story that offers a nostalgia shot that is as refreshing as it is exciting.
Blood Oranges is articulated around three seemingly disconnected stories: a couple of over-indebted retirees try to win a rock competition; a teenager wants to have her first sexual experience and comes across a psychopath; a minister embroiled in a case of tax evasion. Result: a dazzling UFO which oscillates between a squealing comedy to die for laughter (incredible dialogues), a torture film (two scenes were talked about for a long time during the Cannes screening) and a social narrative.
This “train movie” awarded at Cannes (ex-æquo Grand Prize) is a portrait of a freewheeling woman about a young Finnish student who finds herself stuck in a compartment with a drunken, aggressive and low-headed Russian… A nice trip existential flavored with vodka.
Five years after Paul Feig’s female reboot, Jason Reitman takes up the torch from his father Ivan for a third “official” part of the Ghostbusters saga. A film between two chairs, full of faults but absolutely fascinating to examine from the angle of the figure of the father.
