2 – The magnificent

The Movie DB

Behind his old typewriter, François Merlin, modest and shy writer of spy novels, tries to complete the forty-third episode of the adventures of his flamboyant hero, Bob Saint-Clar, an invincible and very elegant secret agent. Throughout the laborious pages of the plot in a shoddy Mexico, he inserts all the people he meets on a daily basis, from his odious publisher, Charron, transformed into an Albanian mobster and sworn enemy of Bob Saint-Clar, to his neighbor Christine, a charming English student who turns into a spy.

The opinion of Télé-Loisirs

A hilarious parody of spy movies, led by a Jean-Paul Belmondo in Olympic form. Irresistible.

The magnificent

3 – Ghostbusters

The Movie DB

Dismissed from the university because of their research deemed far-fetched, three experts in parapsychology found the company “Ghostbusters”. Doctors Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz and Egon Spengler propose to hunt down and put out of harm’s way the many ghosts or other ghosts who frighten New Yorkers. Quickly, the three accomplices are overwhelmed by the influx of calls for help.

The opinion of Télé-Loisirs

This ghost hunt mixes humor and fantasy, with very successful special effects. A classic from the 1980s, funny and delirious.

4 – Spirited Away

The Movie Database

During their move, Chihiro and her family find themselves facing a huge and strange building. In the center, a path leading to a ghost town resembling an amusement park. Chihiro’s parents, attracted by superb and succulent dishes, throw themselves on the food and see themselves transformed into pigs. Distraught, Chihiro runs away. But the little girl begins to dematerialize. Haku then appears, who explains to her that the world she has just entered has precise rules. To get out, the child will have to face the witch Yubaba.

The opinion of Télé-Loisirs

Rewarded in Berlin and at the Oscars, a superb poetic and melancholy animated film.

5 – Room

The Movie Database

Jack lives with his mother, Joy, in a squalid little room, where only a window provides access to daylight. The little boy bakes a cake with his mom to celebrate his 6th birthday. The mother and son, whose days are ruled by repetitive daily activities, never leave this room with the permanently locked door. They have in fact been sequestered for several years by a man, who rapes Joy every night. The kidnapper, whom the young woman nicknames “the naughty Nick” in front of her son, turns out to be the child’s father.

The opinion of Télé-Loisirs

To say that Lenny Abrahamson is a surprising director is an understatement. After films as different as the strange “Garage” and “Frank” (with a Michael Fassbender whose head we never see), he tackles “Room”, the adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s best seller: result , a well-deserved Oscar for a formidable Brie Larson, and a film of permanent tension, which reveals the talent of young Jacob Tremblay: not to be missed!
