● Zombie Child , fantasy Movie from Bertrand Bonello, 1h43.
Presented at the Quinzaine des réalisateurs in Cannes, Zombie Child has raised the enthusiasm of the spectators. This “small” film hits hard. The plot is two-fold: on the one hand, it follows the life of a young band of high school students moving on to the Paris part of the prestigious house education of the Legion of honor, the other, the unique destiny – and hardly believable – of Clairvius Narcisse, the victim of a spell, voodoo, which was transformed into a zombie at the beginning of the 1960s in Haiti. The intricacies are many between the two epochs may seem far-fetched and ill-advised. It is not the case. This film is perfect for the state of the malaise that each generation passes through during the passage from the state of childhood to adulthood. It is in this way that the Zombie Child is a singular success.

● Honeymoon , Comedy-drama Elise Otzenberger, 1h28
Anna and Adam, people to Paris, married and parents of a little boy, look to Poland, where their grandparents have known of the sad fate of millions of Jews during the Second world War. “That should be transmitted when one becomes self-same parent?”, asks Elise Otzenberger without falling into the pitfall of pathos. The two main actors complement each other beautifully. Effective, without pretense. The image of this first feature-length film.

● Men in Black: the International, Fantastic Film by F. Gary Gray, 1.55pm.
Seven years after the great Men in Black 3 by Barry Sonnenfeld, the disappointment is great. F. Gary Gray does what he can with a story without interest. Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth form a tandem friendly, but nothing would do: one is bored. Also missed that Ghostbusters 3 !

Isabelle Huppert has fun like a little crazy to play the psychopath in New York. The viewer a little less. Odd things in a house? Run to see Parasite , the palme d’or Bong Joon-ho.
