  • Just Kids , drama by Christophe Blanc, 1h43

  • The Champion's Challenge , drama by Leonardo D'Agostini, 1h45

Italian Leonardo d'Agostini's debut feature starts off as a funny satire, with AS Roma star player Christian (Andrea Carpenzano) alias “CF 24”. The president of the club decides to put lead in the brain of the white-bec: pass your bac, you will play after. He recruits a teacher, Valerio (Stefano Accorsi), corduroy jacket and beard in battle, the only Roman to have never heard of CF 24. A painting just from the middle of football as we still see too rarely in the cinema .

  • Eva in August, drama by Jonas Trueba, 2:09

This year, it will be without her. Eva is not going on vacation. She prefers to stay in Madrid. In addition, we lend him an apartment. Why deprive yourself? A month of freedom cannot be refused. She is 30 years old and dusty. She hangs out, seeks herself. It looks like it came out of a Rohmer movie. There is in her a freshness, an availability that reminds us of those chatty and relaxed girls that we loved in the French director.

  • Hate , drama by Mathieu Kassovitz, 1h35

The city will crack. Abdel Ichaha, a young man from the suburbs, is between life and death after being beaten up by a police inspector during questioning. A policeman lost his weapon during riots. The storm is brewing in the low-rent housing. Vinz, Hubert and Saïd, three young people from the city, stroll in the middle of this electric atmosphere. Twenty-five years later, Mathieu Kassovitz's cult feature film has a new theatrical release. A visionary film on the suburbs, still as topical as ever.

To avoid

  • The Nurse , drama by Koji Fukada, 1h44

Ichiko, a home nurse, is suspected of aiding and abetting when the youngest of a family with whom she works disappears. Except that Fukada films this story with the vigor of an octopus. As effective as a morphine shot.

  • White Riot , documentary by Rubika Shah, 1h20

Great Britain, at the end of the 1970s, Martin Webster's National Front made its first victims in rock: Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart and David Bowie. Rock Against Racism activists try to stop the slaughter with a fanzine and leaflets. An anecdotal subject that would have benefited from being treated in fiction, like the excellent This Is England , by Shane Meadows.
