September 22 theaters: what are the best movies of the week?

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

THE 3 BEST FILMS ACCORDING TO THE PRESS:

1st: The Summit of the Gods – 4.2 / 5

“The formal bet, remarkable success, is that of a hybrid animation, simplifying and westernizing the line of Jirô Taniguchi to walk in his company towards the clear line and ensure the fluidity of the film.” By Thierry Méranger (Cahiers du Cinéma)

A brilliant adaptation of Jiro Taniguchi’s manga, this perfectly mastered animated film chronicles both the quest of a stubborn climber and a journalist’s investigation into one of the greatest mysteries in the history of the Everest. ” By Stéphane Dreyfus (La Croix)

2nd: The Voice of Aida – 3.8 / 5

“The Voice of Aïda jumps to the throat. Fear has a smell. It also has a face. Jasmila Zbanic multiplies the close-ups, avoids showing the massacres. The result, of a formidable effectiveness, is worth a thousand documentaries.” By Eric Neuhoff (Le Figaro)

“A poignant family story coupled with a historical reflection. The filmmaker thus succeeds in bringing tension, twists and suspense into a story whose outcome is however inevitable.” By Grégory Valens (Positive)

3rd: Notturno – 3.7 / 5

“The luminous beauty of this heartbreaking film, too, opposing its weight of humanity to a death drive that aims for nothing other than annihilation.” By François Ekchajzer (Télérama)

“On the borders of Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, Gianfranco Rosi captures and sublimates, in a chiaroscuro documentary, the scraps of unquiet existence in the wake of the war against Daesh.” By Laura Tuillier (Release)

THE 3 BEST FILMS ACCORDING TO SPECTATORS:

1st: The Voice of Aida – 4.25 / 5

“Heartwarming, powerful, revolting, exciting, there is no lack of qualifiers to describe the feelings we feel when we watch the great film” The Voice of Aida “.” (velocio)

“The staging is of rare elegance, both virtuoso and ample. The artistic direction, the use of the mass of the extras, the accuracy of the actors and the perfect rhythm of the film make Aida’s voice a must of the year and one of the best films ever made on an event of war. A film not to be missed. ” (Christoblog)

2nd: The Summit of the Gods – 4.22 / 5

“Adaptation of the homonymous manga, a story about the obsession with summits and surpassing oneself, between dreamlike and vertigo, between loneliness and sacrifice. A fascinating animated film and a very beautiful tribute to these climbers of the extreme.” (Cinévore24)

“Landscapes of great beauty, identical to drawn photos. A scenario built on the laws of the mountain which will not fail to communicate to us the enthusiasm of these extreme climbers. An adult animated film in which we will venture into dangerous and vertiginous spaces. ” (Kevin dioles)

3rd: Bigger Than Us – 3.6 / 5

“A powerful and moving documentary where young activists take us with humility and determination to their various struggles. Freedom of expression, pollution, equality, poverty, education … Neither guilt, nor lesson-giver, a tremendous energy of life. A slap !” (Laurence Anthropo)

“Very beautiful film on the state of the world and the gaze of a youth who is fighting to change it. A story or activism is not shown (and rightly so) as a handful of irreducible utopians but as the solution to problems which are all interrelated. ” (Ri Fill)
