The year 2021 will have been a singular year for Prime Video, between the original creations of series and the private feature films released in theaters. Here are the rankings of the best films and series according to the ratings of the spectators.
The year 2021 has undoubtedly contributed to the growth of streaming platforms and Prime Video, in its strategy to expand its presence in France, has benefited from this very special year. Better yet, the fact of becoming the new holder of the rights to the French football championship has certainly weighed in the balance and allowed a wider audience to take an interest in its content.
This is how we see the first place in the top 5 series best rated by AlloCiné spectators, the animated series Invincible. This one ostensibly echoes another Prime Video box, The Boys. Even though the two series are unrelated, they share a taste for gore and the destruction of the superhero myth. The second place of Mixte marks a turning point in the original French creations for Amazon. We regret, however, that it was canceled after a season.
On the cinema side, a French film won first place: Le Bal des folles by Mélanie Laurent. Originally slated for a theatrical release, this historic fresco took a chilling look at the barbaric methods of 19th century psychiatry.th century. Two American independent films follow, Our Friend and The Map of Tiny Perfect Things. In fourth position comes The Tomorrow War, the SF blockbuster with Chris Pratt. And in fifth place, Regina King’s successful directorial debut, One Night in Miami.
