THE FILM OF THE DAY

From the drama (Incendies), to the thriller (Enemy, Prisoners), through the police action film (Sicario), Denis Villeneuve has shown the whole world his talent for mixing rightness of emotion and staging of great span. So, when the filmmaker tries his hand at science fiction for the first time, he continues to shatter the codes of the genre. Released in 2016, First contact focuses above all on the human and is presented as an intimate work that speaks of communication. A turn in the director’s career who will return to this register in Blade Runner 2049, sequel to the cult film by Ridley Scott, and in the ambitious adaptation of Dune, a monument of SF literature written by Frank Herbert.
