Wildlife: A season ardent , drama, Paul Dano, 1 hour and 45 minutes.

In endorsing the range of director, actor Paul Dano fits a harrowing story of Richard Ford. With Wildlife: A season ardent , he brushes the monotony of provincial, reconstructs the period with an accuracy to Todd Haynes, lighting reminiscent of Edward Hopper. A kid contemplates his childhood, which disappears in the middle of the boxes coloured in the supermarket, at the sound of the 33-towers placed on the pick-up, surrounded by melancholy. Dano runs a risk: his first film is likely to be its best. There are dangers more embarrassing.

of Course, Rupert Everett manages to marry aesthetics and decadence in the manner of his model. But this gives a climate sticky, an atmosphere hardly breathable. The Happy Prince , a title borrowed from a tale of Wilde, is a paradoxically absolute.

The Emperor of Paris , film history, Jean-François Richet, 1: 50pm

there are all the ingredients for a great film popular. A hero high in color, Vidocq, a convict became a police officer with unorthodox methods, already mythologized through literature, television and film. A period epic (the reign of Napoleon), a casting gleaming (Vincent Cassel, Fabrice Luchini, Denis Ménochet, Patrick Chesnais), mugs not possible, wigs, hair and snags, rotten.

Jason Momoa, Willem Dafoe and Nicole Kidman are dabbling in their role of loubard amphibian, samurai of water and queen of the fish women. Not what to take the most laughable of super-heroes seriously.
