• Bad Tales

    Bad Tales

    ★★★

    Depressed kid from the suburbs is a common trop but this film has memorable characters, some striking scenes and a charming weirdness.

  • Autumn Sonata

    Autumn Sonata

    ★★★

    I don't know if it's because I'm watching a lot of Woody Allen film these days but the beginning as sort of the same mood. But we're with Bergman so the ending is definitely tragic. My only concern about the film is the colorimetry (it's very contrasted and browny). The film has some powerful scenes and features two great performances.

  • Bright: Samurai Soul

    Bright: Samurai Soul

    The first Bright film was not a masterpiece but featured an original setting mixing crime and urban fantasy. This anime spin-off has the same story but set in Japan's Meiji era. It's way more conventional and not really original. I liked the visual vibe but the animation and camera movements were very poor.

  • Headhunters

    Headhunters

    The film is a lot of impactful scenes thanks to the visuals and the actors. But the story is really to convoluted for a simple pursuit scenario, it never really makes sense.

  • Cries and Whispers

    Cries and Whispers

    ★★★

    The mood is amazing and the characters are great but I missed this spark of light that my favorite Bergman's films have. Stifling and desperate.

  • My Little Sister

    My Little Sister

    ★★

    I was afraid it would be another film about sickness which tries to make you cry at all cost. But it's more a film about creativity and the importance of artistic life. Maybe too metaphorical but well-acted.

  • Seven Days War

    Seven Days War

    ★★★

    I was worried at the beginning of the film: the plot was simple, the charadesign was generic and some effects tried to emulate "Your Name". But the film has some very poetic moments and interesting topics for a mainstream anime film (facing authority, LGBT people...).

  • Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle

    Pokémon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle

    It's Jungle Book with Pokémons, that's fine but it lacks epicness, feels a bit like a filler episode of the series. But the animation is good and it was not always the case with Pokémon films.

  • A Perfect Plan

    A Perfect Plan

    Diane Kruger as a great comedic actress is really the discovery of the film. It's funny and the Russian setting is exotic. The last third is too hysterical though.

  • One Wild Moment

    One Wild Moment

    The film is interesting because it's amoral but it's still very predictable when you get what's going on.

  • A Very Long Engagement

    A Very Long Engagement

    ★★★★★

    I really of this film. It has Jeunet's unique touch (you can hate it), all the storylines are captivating and the cast is great. Epic and unique.

  • The Man Who Sleeps

    The Man Who Sleeps

    The film has a very interesting concept: showing a man who does practically nothing but still lives his everyday life. Maybe too nihilistic for my taste but surely memorable.
