THE 3 BEST FILMS ACCORDING TO THE PRESS:
1st: The Father – 4.1 / 5
“A moving mental maze, The Father is a visceral and truly breathtaking experience of human decay. A very great first film.” By Alexandre Janowiak (Large Screen)
“Zeller’s intelligence is to inject cerebrality into this ocean of emotions and thus prevent the tear gas from taking everything in its path.” By Thierry Cheze (Premiere)
2nd: Hospitality – 3.8 / 5
“The humor here comes mainly from what shocks the rigidity of the Japanese body, socially hampered, and contravenes its domestic rituals, regulated like music paper.” By Mathieu Macheret (Le Monde)
“A fable where cruel humor is based as much on the situations as on the staging. Enjoyable.” By Xavier Leherpeur (Le Nouvel Observateur)
3rd: Balloon – 3.7 / 5
“The director, whose sixth film is, has the gift of leading the spectator on false tracks to better surprise him.” By Olivier Delcroix (Le Figaro)
“Very beautiful film both contemplative and intimate, ‘Balloon’ refers to the lightness of bubbles and the heaviness of unwanted pregnancies.” By Sophie Avon (South West)
THE 3 BEST FILMS ACCORDING TO SPECTATORS:
1st: The Father – 4.3 / 5
“A hard and trying film, without pathos, courageous, assumed and totally successful, the emotion of which remains anchored long after the last images of the credits.” By elriad Magistral!
“A big slap. Anthony Hopkins at the top, Olivia Coleman perfect, a first achievement without missteps.” By Frida Kilo
2nd: Hospitality – 4/5
“A great pleasure to find Koji Fukada! This film, among his first feature films, already suggests the content of his cinema, between bittersweet comedy and psychological thriller.” By Kurama93
“Crazy comedy or paranoid thriller? That is the question! Until the end, Kôji Fukada leaves doubt with brio in this work more complex than it seems, by the subtlety and the strangeness that it instills in an almost ordinary story. ” By Vanin0_o
3rd: Promising Young Woman – 3.7 / 5
“Here is a film which stands out and which does good as it surprises us from beginning to end!” By Jorik V
“A revenge pop film that dynamites the codes. Sometimes a thriller, sometimes a romantic comedy, it upsets, it destabilizes. Carey Mulligan is magnificent! Acid, striking, the best film of the year.” By Florent P.
