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:
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 trying side (Climax), but the film ends up, as the Vortex of the title suggests, by sucking the gaze. ” By Cyprien Caddeo (Humanity)
“Departing from his usual universe but remaining faithful to his style, Gaspar Noé records this process by making it an experience that is by turns trying or moving, anecdotal or fascinating.” By Nicolas Marcadé (Les Fiches du Cinéma)
2nd: A Chiara – 3.7/5
“This is a precious film, haunted by powerful visions, torn by heartbreaking moments, providing brilliant suspense scenes.” By Jacques Mandelbaum (The World)
“Camera in hand, in a feverish style close to documentary, the Italian filmmaker embraces the stubborn gaze of his young heroine who is suddenly entering adulthood.” By Yannick Vely Paris Match
3rd: A whole night without knowing – 3.67/5
“Both a day-to-day chronicle of the occupation of a university and a kaleidoscope of poetic visions, the film succeeds in bringing a little light into the great totalitarian night.” By Thomas Grignon
Critikat.com “Payal Kapadia’s bias translates the drama of the present which does not change, a present prisoner of the past, whether haunted by a lost love or the conservatism of an Indian society which asphyxiates its youth.” By Bruno Deruisseau (Les Inrockuptibles)
THE 3 BEST FILMS ACCORDING TO VIEWERS:
1st: Come on kids – 4.2/5
“I had the chance to discover the film in preview at the Grand Rex last week. A magnificent portrait of today’s youth filmed with mastery 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 on education, the beauty of the teachers and on the construction of a new society! The soundtrack is exceptional!” By sydney
2nd: The Revenge of the Glitter Shrimps – 4.0/5
“AWESOME!! The first opus was hilarious and had achieved the feat of being funny AND raising a social issue. Doing a second one was risky but it’s a largely successful bet!! It’s very funny. ” By Nicholas G.
“I saw the film in preview and I loved it, the humor which does not prevent you from also passing on a few messages… Excellent dialogue… A lot of tenderness also for the characters… Can’t wait for the 3rd part :)” By i.neron
3rd: Vortex – 3.9/5
“Each work by Gaspar Noé is an experience, often traumatic, sometimes based on provocation and hallucinated images. Vortex is placed in a different register, stripped down and falsely documentary, but what it demands of the viewer is immense, in this black study that leaves no room for fantasy.” By sydney
“The session begins, a silence is immediately imposed in the room, and after a sluggish first half-hour, the scenes follow one another before ending with a magnificent finale, both emotional and visual.” By Charley Martin
