Police

, drama by Anne Fontaine, 1h39

In the credits, the letters of the word "POLICE" are backwards.

Our world is too.

These three cops know about it.

The routine of the police station is seen by the three protagonists.

They don't have time to breathe.

Their profession has a smell.

It is that of death.

They are going to live the longest night of their lives.

The hierarchy asks them to accompany an illegal Tajik to Roissy.

The mission will be a revealer of their character.

Is this guy in the orange sweater a poor refugee or a terrorist?

In any case, he casts lost glances around him.

The car ride takes up the last third of the film.

Police

is a closed door that runs at fifty an hour.

Anne Fontaine, filmmaker with a checkered career, offers a mixture of

Rashomon

and

The Last Chore

.

We are close to the abysses of human beings.

Virginie Efira confirms that she surpasses her rivals with a good head.

Huge

, comedy by Sophie Letourneur, 1h41

Everything is huge in Sophie Letourneur's comedy.

The situations, the dialogues and the belly of Marina Foïs when he starts to swell abnormally in the maternity ward, a scene worthy of a David Cronenberg nightmare.

The laughter too, triggered by this cruel farce.

Claire (Marina Foïs) is an internationally renowned pianist, brilliant and introverted.

Frédéric (Jonathan Cohen) is her husband and also her agent, her bodyguard, her factotum with a charming gossip.

By dint of replacing his pill with a sweetener, Frédéric makes Claire a child in the back.

This bizarre behavior is the prelude to nine hellish months for Claire.

Sophie Letourneur then pushes the cork even further and reverses stereotypes.

Antigone

, drama by Sophie Deraspe, 1h49

With

Antigone,

the 46-year-old Quebec director was inspired by a news item, a police intervention that goes wrong in a park in Montreal.

So history is happening nowadays.

Antigone is a successful Kabyle teenager at school.

She now lives in Canada with her two brothers, Etéocle and Polynices, her sister Ismène and her grandmother, Méni.

But tragedy bursts into his daily life.

Etéocle is killed during an altercation with the police and Polynices is put in prison.

The young girl decides to

"save"

the latter.

Pushed to its limits, she becomes an outlaw determined to lead an

"insoluble fight"

.

A political pasionaria.

Sophie Deraspe has Sophocles' work in mind when she writes the dialogues and takes up the codes of tragedy.

If the end is predictable, the staging leaves the suspense hovering.

The interpretation is in tune.

Nahéma Ricci, 21, did not hesitate to disguise herself as a boy to compose with talent a figure that arouses compassion.

Blood Machines

, science fiction film by Seth Ickerman, 1h42

After the excellent Turbo Killer clip by Carpenter Brut, the duo Seth Ickerman (formed by the French Raphaël Hernandez and Savitri Joly-Gonfard) extends the universe in a medium-length film at the height of their talent.

Funded through a crowdfunding campaign, this project follows the journey of two hunters tracking down a machine that tries to emancipate itself.

But they will discover that behind the machine is actually a female form.

Blood Machines

invites the viewer to return to the aesthetics of 80s science fiction for a journey of stunning visual effects.

The objectification of women, the evolution of artificial intelligence or the links between man and machine are developed in this musical space opera.

For each screening, the 50-minute film is associated with a 50-minute making-of as well, to the delight of science fiction lovers.
