To help you make your choices, here are the 3 films of the week best rated by the press and spectators on AlloCiné!*
THE 3 BEST FILMS ACCORDING TO THE PRESS:
1er: Ennio – 3.9 / 5
“Without putting his feet to the wall, nor spreading out his collaboration with the maestro, Tornatore, a plan-plan filmmaker, perfectly details the process which gradually transformed a little trumpeter son of a (jazz) trumpeter into a musical giant of the 20th century. .” By Vincent Ostria (L’Humanité)
“Thanks to a plethora of archives, often relevant speakers, an attention paid as much to the work as to the man, Giuseppe Tornatore has designed a cinematographic portrait of Ennio Morricone at the height of his immense subject.” By Jef Marcadé (Les Fiches du Cinéma)
2nd: Peter von Kant – 3.6/5
“The French filmmaker freely adapts “The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant”, by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and pays an insolent tribute to the German director who died in 1982. A new success for the unpredictable director.” By Olivier De Bruyn (Les Echos)
“Peter Von Kant is neither a pastiche nor a copy. Rather, from one film to another, “a beautiful infidel”, according to the Baudelairean precept of translation. A successful exercise in admiration because oscillating between osmosis and distance.” By Gérard Lefort (Les Inrockuptibles)
3ème : The Sadness – 3.22/5
“Beware of you who believe you are discovering a gory, light and entertaining B series: despite its generosity, The Sadness crushes the humanity of its characters and ours in the process.” By Mathieu Jaborska (Widescreen)
“Like a ride on a ghost train launched at 200 an hour, the film frightens, makes people laugh and then scream, and the spectator very often finds himself with a hand in front of his eyes, incredulous in front of the surge of violence.” By Marc Godin (Le Point)
THE 3 BEST FILMS ACCORDING TO VIEWERS:
1er: Ennio – 4.5 / 5
“A great, fascinating documentary. It’s a real pleasure to hear the music of the legendary composer in a cinema, and to see the great classics on the big screen again. Fantastic!” By Simon R.
“What a joy to get to know the man behind the artist, with images commented by himself some time before his death. An intense and brilliant documentary, a must see.” By Maeva L.
2nd: Minions 2: Once Upon a Time Gru – 3.7/5
“It’s a very funny film and accessible to all. Perfect to go with family, as with friends. Don’t hesitate!” By Nolan Margotat Zamperetti
“Despite many air holes between scenes full of good ideas, this second part of Minions displays a quality production, carried by a “so vintage” soundtrack. By Guillaume
3ème : The Sadness – 3.2/5
“In short, a film that made me think of a cross between “The Last Train to Busan” and “Irreversible”, a crazy and thoughtful film, a work that seems anachronistic in the current cinematographic landscape while its themes are dramatically current (…).” By Roub E.
“(…) we are amazed by the quality of the make-up and the visual effects which finally add to the horror, on the other hand in the too much side we tick on certain sequences where the waves of hemoglobin are improbable like a geyser of blood .” By sydney
