If you haven't seen all the things, we advocate the latter in addition to a catch-up session with three movies launched these final Wednesdays and that are definitely worth the detour: Furiosa: a Mad Max saga which marks the fanfare return of George Miller, The Second Actthe brand new UFO by Quentin Dupieux, with Vincent Lindon, Léa Seydoux, Louis Garrel and Raphaël Quenard, and Marcello Mio, a barely loopy comedy by Christophe Honoré during which Chiara Mastroianni slips with delight into the pores and skin of her illustrious father. The doubling is disturbing and filled with fantasy.

Furiosa: a Mad Max saga ✭✭✭✭


George Miller explores the origins of the warrior found within the earlier opus, Fury Road. A toddler martyr torn from her household by the barbarians within the pay of the warlord Dementus, Furiosa hardens in a post-apocalyptic world whereas plotting her revenge. This prequel pushes new boundaries in stunt insanity. Anya Taylor-Joy brilliantly takes up the flame of the parable Furiosa.

Marcello Mio ✭✭✭✭

In the title of the Father

A stunning comedy carried with nice allure and fantasy by Chiara Mastroianni, who dons the costume of this father who’s omnipresent in her life and her desires. Taking in your look is one of the best ways to construct relationships. The mirror impact is shocking. We simply get caught up on this sport the place everybody performs their half in opposition to this actual/false Marcello.

“Who says I’m Fabrice Luchini? » says the actor, while Catherine Deneuve plays the surprise and emotion in the face of this transformation, Benjamin Biolay has fun with it, Nicole Garcia can't believe it and Melvil Poupaud doesn't lose his temper. Enough to really fall into this sweet madness.

The Second Act ✭✭✭✭

No extra comedy!

Quentin Dupieux diverts the method of the movie throughout the movie to make a dramatic comedy during which a father, his daughter and her boyfriend frolic, who wish to throw her into the arms of one other. They are gathered at a restaurant desk. We are in fiction however off-camera, they don’t do one another any favors, they argue continuously, they play soiled methods on one another. In the register of mirror cinema, Vincent Lindon, Louis Garrel, Léa Seydoux and Raphaël Quenard are wonderful, money, served by a script and dialogues to the purpose.

The Beauty of Gaza ✭✭✭

Trans ladies, the worth of freedom

We left Yolande Zauberman immersed within the ultraorthodox surroundings with M (2018), nice crucial and public success, and César for finest documentary. Here she is once more with a brand new documentary accomplished earlier than October 7, 2023 and screened in a particular screening on the Cannes Film Festival. The Beauty of Gazashe is a trans lady seen in a road in Tel Aviv throughout the filming of M and who would have come – the director understood – from Gaza to Tel Aviv on foot…

In the primary a part of the movie, the filmmaker returns to Hatnufa Street, the place trans prostitutes work, and exhibits them the pictures filmed on the time. Who can discover the hint of “the beauty of Gaza”? Yolande Zauberman chats with each. “The night lends itself to confidences,” she explains, “we are in a space borderline. Like a dream or a nightmare. People have more time, boundaries are blurring. And then at night, it's sensual. I like to magnify people. These trans women, in ancient times, were seen as demi-goddesses. I wanted to give them back this place. »

Each recounts the childhood of a little boy subjected to social and religious prohibitions, with humiliation and violence. And sometimes punitive expeditions occur on Hatnufa Street. “Danielle, for example, comes from the Palestinian territories,” explains the filmmaker. She was kidnapped by males who got here from the territories to punish her. The danger is at all times of being acknowledged, on a TikTookay video for instance. She survived and her mom instructed her: “I wish they didn’t kill you.” These ladies present us the worth of freedom. »

Another lady, Israela, from an Orthodox Jewish background, recounts having been married for 3 years to a rabbi with out him understanding that she was trans… “Their relationship was very loving, sexual. But one day, when she wanted to leave him, she left her papers lying on a table, just to settle the matter. He immediately granted her a divorce. »

Another key character in the film, Talleen Abu Hanna, Miss Trans Israel, singer and artist, pays tribute to this country where she is accepted as she is. “A journalist asked him: “What do you have to say after October 7?” » says Yolande Zauberman. She replied: “If I have managed to make peace between my body and my soul, if I have managed to make peace between being Arab and living here, then peace is possible. . » And in fact, the film tells in his case the story of a reconciliation inside his body and outside. She found her family. “It’s a film about the freedom to become who we are, whatever our origin or our religion,” concludes the filmmaker.
