To help you make your choices, here are the 3 films of the week best rated by the press and spectators on AlloCiné!*


1st: A nice morning – 3.7/5

“While it is not distinctly split into two systems of representation as Bergman Island was, this new film is also organized into two poles. The upheaval in love is opposed by the mourning of a father. A man arrives and the ‘other is leaving.’ By Bruno Deruisseau (Les Inrockuptibles)

“From this autobiographical subject, Mia Hansen-Løve draws a crystalline, delicate sonata, a subtle story that dares to let time pass. Seydoux excels and Greggory, a brilliant actor, enlarges, in an impossible role, his “Greggorian” field.” By Sophie Grassin (L’Obs)

2nd: The Fighter – 3.6/5

“Director Camille Ponsin films Marie-José Tubiana, ethnologist, photographer and director who welcomes and helps refugees from Darfur. A wonderful documentary.” By Sophie Avon (South West)

“Collecting the words of refugees from Darfur and giving them access to a life with us. This is the essential work of Marie-José Tubiana.” By Isabelle Danel (Band apart)

3rd tied: Tori and Lokita – 3.5/5

“Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne retrace the journey of two young migrants in Belgium confronted with the networks of the underground economy. (…) A bitter and moving film which stands out as the peak of their filmography.” By Adrien Gombeaud (Les Echos)

“The boat is loaded, but the way in which the resistance of the little boy and the young girl is organized reminds us that the Dardennes, even though their writing seems padlocked, can sometimes show a certain finesse of line.” By Joshua Morel (

3rd tied: The Origin of Evil – 3.5/5

“The incredible Dominique Blanc leads a choral cast with small onions, which makes this poisonous and immoral tale one of the best French films of the year.” By Fabrice Leclerc (Paris Match)

“The value of this farce, which examines the family and its toxic neuroses through abrasive humor, is above all due to its gallery of ordinary monsters embodied by an inspired troupe.” By Julien Barcilon (Télé 7 Jours)

3rd tied: November – 3.5/5

“The director’s method is to base his film on solid documentation and to extract a captivating dramaturgy from it. His characters are well identified, embodied by committed actors, his spectacular staging supported by dynamic editing.” By Jacky Bornet (Franceinfo Culture)

“Terrorists will never be embodied. It is the effectiveness of the genre film that takes precedence. The asphyxiating action thriller, stripped of any other consideration. Five days in apnea. ” By Christophe Caron (The Voice of the North)


1st: November – 4/5

“Not surprisingly, you have to rush to see this film which plunges us into the event of November 13 with a disturbing realism.” By Arthur Guezou

“November takes us by the guts and nails us to our chair from the first to the last minute. We almost regret that it doesn’t take more of its time and doesn’t last half an hour longer.” By Yves G.

2nd: The Origin of Evil – 3.5/5

“This film undoubtedly arouses emotions: embarrassment, dread, laughter and paints the portrait of a problem rooted in our society. Very successful.” By Arthur Brondy

“A little nugget to savor without moderation. A surprising cast, A closed-door thriller that keeps you in suspense until the last minute.” By Nathalie Silfio

3rd: A beautiful morning – 3.4/5

“In “A Beautiful Morning”, Mia Hansen-Løve once again demonstrates a great aptitude for recounting family relationships and thwarted loves.” By velocio
