To help you choose, here are the 3 films of the week best valued by the press and viewers on AlloCiné!*
THE 3 BEST FILMS ACCORDING TO THE PRESS:
1st: Vortex – 3.9/5
“This bias can be disconcerting at first glance, especially when you love the director for his dirty, explosive and sometimes difficult side (Climax), but the film ends, as the Vortex of the title suggests, sucking the look.” By Cyprien Caddeo (Humanity)
“Leaving his usual universe but staying true to his style, Gaspar Noé records this process, turning it into an experience that is sometimes tentative or moving, anecdotal or fascinating.” By Nicolas Marcadé (Les Files du Cinéma)
2nd: chiara – 3.7/5
“This is a beautiful film, haunted by powerful visions, torn by harrowing moments, offering brilliant cliffhangers.” By Jacques Mandelbaum (The World)
“Camera in hand, in a feverish style bordering on documentary, the Italian filmmaker embraces the stubborn gaze of his young heroine suddenly entering adulthood.” By Yannick Vely Party of Paris
3rd : a whole night without knowing – 3.67/5
“At once a chronicle of the day-to-day occupation of a university and a kaleidoscope of poetic visions, the film succeeds in bringing a little light to the great totalitarian night.” By Thomas Grignon
Critikat.com “Payal Kapadia’s bias translates the drama of the present that does not change, a present prisoner of the past, whether persecuted by a lost love or the conservatism of an Indian society that suffocates its youth.” By Bruno Deruisseau (The Unrockuptibles)
THE 3 BEST FILMS ACCORDING TO VIEWERS:
1st: Come on children – 4.2/5
“I had the opportunity to discover the film in preview at the Grand Rex last week. A magnificent portrait of today’s youth masterfully shot by the duo Demaizière-Teurlai (The Next Generation, Lourdes). Run-y!” By Romain P.
“A true masterpiece of talented directors. A slap in the face of education, the beauty of teachers and the construction of a new society! The soundtrack is exceptional!” by sydney
2nd: Revenge of the shiny shrimp – 4.0/5
“AWESOME! The first play was hilarious and had accomplished the feat of being funny AND raising a social issue. Doing a second one was risky, but it’s a largely successful gamble! It’s a lot of fun.” by Nicholas G.
“I saw the movie in preview and I loved it, the humor that doesn’t stop you from also passing some messages… Excellent dialogue… A lot of tenderness also for the characters… I can’t wait for the 3rd part :)” By i.neron
3ème : Vortex – 3.9/5
“Each work by Gaspar Noé is an experience, often traumatic, sometimes based on provocation and hallucinated images. Vortex is set in a different register, stripped down and falsely documentary, but what it demands of the viewer is immense, in this black studio that leaves no room for fantasy.” by sydney
“The session begins, the room is immediately silenced, and after a lethargic first half hour, the scenes follow each other before ending with a magnificent finale, both emotional and visual.” By Charlie Martin
