On TV Wednesday December 8: one of the funniest films of the Coen brothers

Every day, find the program of films and series to watch on TV. Tonight: the Odyssey seen by the Coen brothers, Isabelle Huppert as a cattle breeder and the adaptation of a video game.


THE FILM OF THE DAY

First film of the idiots trilogy (later completed with Intolerable Cruelty and Burn After Reading), O’Brother is a free adaptation of Homer’s “The Odyssey”, here transposed by the Coen brothers in the Mississippi of the Great Depression . They thus sign one of their funniest and most intelligent comedy, where the comic potential of George Clooney is exploited with accuracy, without ever bordering on the ridiculous.
