Documented, poetic, emancipatory… The cinema releases of March 9

March 9, 2022 by No Comments


by Frederic Tellier

French film, 2 h 02

An extremely well-documented feature film on the formidable strategy put in place by the agrochemical giants to escape the consequences of the use of pesticides. The fascinating and fluid plot is notably served by a face-to-face between Gilles Lellouche, an idealistic lawyer, and Pierre Niney, an unscrupulous lobbyist.

French campaign **

by Sylvain Desclous

French documentary, 1 h 38

The director tenderly follows the candidates for the March 2020 municipal election in the village of his grandparents, in Indre-et-Loire, where he had already shot a first documentary in 2019. Focusing more on the characters, everything both determined, clumsy or funny, that at the electoral stakes, he delivers a story full of poetry.

Small type **

by Samuel Theis

French film, 1h35

Johnny, 10 years old, blond curls and angelic face, aspires, without yet formulating it, to a social, intellectual and sexual emancipation which will crystallize in the face of his new teacher. A film with assertive naturalism, full of delicacy and elegance.

The Housewife **

by Yukiko Mishima

Japanese film, 2 h 03

Immersed in the torments of passion after meeting Kurata, an old love, Toko will come up against the injunctions of Japanese society.

Murder Party*

by Nicholas Pleskof

French film, 1h30

Despite a successful 1950s aesthetic and the energetic presence of Alice Pol alongside Eddy Mitchell and Pascale Arbillot, this mixture of macabre farce and comedy fails to take hold.
