The one who is a fan of Friends and could work at Dunder Mifflin. Never miss a movie screening, dream of living in a Sautet film, doing a choreo with the Vega brothers (those of Tarantino) and going to a Boom with Vic! (“And there, normally, I need a Latin quote…”)

Golden Globe 2022 for Best Screenplay, Belfast is Kenneth Branagh’s brand new film. An autobiographical chronicle cradled by a sublime black and white photograph, to be found on March 2 at the cinema. Trailer.

At the start of the year, Kenneth Branagh puts on his director’s cap to lift the veil on his most intimate film. At the cinema this March 2, 2022, Belfast is freely inspired by the childhood of the famous and prolific British actor / filmmaker / screenwriter.

Here we are immersed in the summer of 1969, meeting Buddy, 9 years old. Coming from the working class, this pampered child and evolving in a warm and close-knit community falls in love with television and cinemas.


Fueled by the imagination of these American films taking him on a journey, the little boy’s dreams turn into a nightmare when the first man takes a step on the moon. This gesture marks the beginning of a social revolt, and riots soon punctuate Buddy’s daily life.

Between joy and violence, mourning and hope, laughter, tears and music, Belfast takes us on a whirlwind of life punctuated by a breathtaking black and white photograph by Haris Zambarloukos, director of photography for Thor, The Crime of the Orient Express, Artemis Fowl…

An autobiographical chronicle in which young Jude Hill, Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan, Caitriona Balfe, Ciarán Hinds shine; and awarded the 2022 Golden Globe for Best Screenplay for Kenneth Branagh and the Audience Award at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival. See you on March 2, 2021 at the cinema.
