It's Only The End Of The World Review

Essential

At just 27 years old, Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan has an almost overwhelming set of accolades alongside his name. All six of his feature films have won major awards, including this one, which like several others tackles a dysfunctional family with style, humour and unflinching nastiness. This one also features a stellar cast at the top of their game, and a situation that's almost painfully easy to identify with.

It opens as Louis (Gaspard Ulliel) arrives at his rural family home for the first time in 12 years to tell his family that he's dying. But he finds it difficult to get the words out. His mother Martine (Nathalie Baye) is chirpy and excited, his older brother Antoine (Vincent Cassel) challenges everything everyone says, and their younger sister Suzanne (Lea Seydoux) is curious to learn more about this brother she never really knew. And then there's Antoine's eerily patient wife Catherine (Marion Cotillard), who quietly observes everything until she understands what Louis is struggling to tell everyone, long before he can say it out loud.

Yes, this is an exploration of how awkward it is to go home again, falling back into old patterns of behaviour that make it very difficult to be yourself and say what needs to be said. And also how hard it is to understand the experiences and lifestyle of people we were once very close to who have moved on. The film is based on a play by Jean-Luc Lagarce, which is apparent in its closed-in location and the series of pointed conversations. And Dolan opens this out cleverly, using visually stunning camerawork that continually isolates the characters' inner thoughts and feelings in contrast to their outer actions. In other words, it's immediately clear why Louis left these people behind.

Gary has been in and out of low-paid work for most of his young life despite being physically fit and able to adapt to most workplace situations. However, his adaptability could be about to be challenged as he signs up to work at a nuclear power plant in France.

His new 'family' situation gets complicated when he falls in love with Toni's flirtatious fiancee Karole and he risks losing everything he's worked so hard for. Not only that, there's fear at work when he and some others suffer at the hands of radioactivity - and now his life could well be in danger.

Blue Is The Warmest Colour Review


Extraordinary

The surprise winner of the top prize at Cannes, this three-hour French drama is unlike any movie we've ever seen, getting so deeply under the skin of its central character that we find universal truths in the story even if we can't identify with it. It's an extraordinary film that holds us in rapt attention, shaking us up until we are forced to look into our own souls.

It takes place in Lille, northern France, where 15-year-old deep-thinker Adele (Exarchopolous) is obsessed with literature and philosophy, trying to figure out who she is. She gives in to pressure from friends to date the cutest guy in school (Lahuerte), but knows it's not right. Mainly because she can't get the blue-haired Emma (Seydoux) out of her mind. Emma is a bit older, and as they get to know each other their romance blossoms from sex to love. But over the following years, they neglect each other, becoming distracted by other things until they reach a breaking point.

The script's main focus is on three main elements in life: food, art and sex. And all three swirl throughout the film. Despite the premise, this isn't a coming-out story, even though Adele is terrified to reveal her sexuality to her parents (Salee and Recoing) and her friends. Instead this is a detailed exploration of a young woman's first encounter with the complexities of love. So the extended sex scenes are never gratuitous, because they reveal the changing bond between Adele and Emma.

The Grand Budapest Hotel Trailer


Gustave H is a flamboyant and largely charismatic concierge at the Grand Budapest Hotel whose habit of getting a little too close to his guests and keeping them entertained at all hours has earned him legendary status among many of his peers. When he meets enthusiastic young lobby boy Zero Moustafa, Gustave trains him to be the best hotel worker he can and the pair become thick as thieves as they try and defend each other at all costs. When one of his more 'special' guests is found murdered, police accuse Gustave who does what any upstanding gentleman would do - runs. To the anger of the guest's son, he is bequeathed a valuable painting known as 'Boy With Apple' and now he finds himself on a cat and mouse chase with the victim's family and the police. Meanwhile, Zero meets the charming Agatha, who he's also desperate to protect as best he can.

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' is a heartwarming comedy about a very unusual friendship, directed and written by Wes Anderson ('Fantastic Mr. Fox', 'Rushmore', 'The Royal Tenenbaums'). It is based in 1920s Europe and truly reflects the glamour of the privileged in that decade. The movie is due to be released in the UK on February 28th 2014.

'Blue Is The Warmest Color' Director To Sue "Arrogant" Lead Actress Seydoux?


Lea Seydoux Cannes Film Festival

Abdellatif Kechiche, the director of the Palme d'Or winning movie Blue is the Warmest Color, has verbally attacked French newspaper Le Monde, the journalist Aureliano Tonet and even his own lead actress Lea Seydoux in an open letter published on the website Rue89.

Kechiche begins by attacking the negative stories about his movie that appeared in Le Monde, though focuses much of his ire on Seydoux whom he calls an "arrogant, spoiled child." He appears to threaten legal action for the actress' statements about his methods during shooting the movie.

Lesbian Love Story Beats Coen Brothers To Palme D'Or At Cannes


Cannes Film Festival Steven Spielberg Adele Exarchopoulos Lea Seydoux Alexander Payne Berenice Bejo Coen Brothers

An intimate lesbian love story by Abdellatif Kechiche won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival, the prestigious Palme d'Or on Sunday. La Vie d'Adele - Chapitre 1 & 2 (Blue is the Warmest Colour) was chosen by a jury headed by Steven Spielberg as the best movie showing in competition, despite some concerns about its length (3 hours) and content, specifically its explicit sex scenes.

According to Reuters, Spielberg said the award should be shared between Kechiche and his two lead actresses Adele Exarchopoulos and Lea Seydoux, such was the level of their performances in the film.  "I think it will get a lot of play ... I think this film carries a very strong message, a very positive message," Spielberg told journalists. "It was the perfect choice between those two actresses and this incredible very sensitive and observant filmmaker." Cannes director Thierry Fremaux said the hundreds of thousands of demonstrators who marched in Paris this week to protest the country's legalization of same-sex marriage should go watch Blue Is The Warmest Colour. "Everyone who is against same-sex marriage or love between two people of the same sex must see the film," he said.

Tunisian-born actor Kechiche made his directorial debut in 2000. He was virtually speechless upon accepting the award, dedicating it to the youth of France and Tunisia who "wanted only to live, speak and love freely" during the Arab spring.

Sister Review


Excellent
A bracingly honest approach to flawed characters makes this small-scale Swiss drama thoroughly involving. And moving too. Most intriguing is how the writers and director have transformed what's essentially a rather dark, bleak story into something involving and emotionally resonant, all without ever turning sentimental.

It's set at the foot of a spectacular Alpine ski resort, where Simon (Klein) spends winter days travelling up and down the slopes, grabbing whatever isn't locked down, then selling the stolen goggles, gloves and even skis to help support his sister Louise (Seydoux). They live in a tiny flat, but Louise is annoyed that she has to take care of Simon, and she's usually off with yet another boyfriend. So Simon begins to turn to other people for a sense of family, including a ski-lift chef (Compston) who helps him with his scam and a foreign woman (Anderson) who seems like the ideal mother.

In their scenes together, Klein and Seydoux have a remarkably authentic chemistry that includes tiny jealousies, rivalries, private jokes and a fierce loyalty to each other. As we learn more about their past, this takes on new meaning that's both warmly touching and darkly chilling at the same time. These two may have a difficult life, but they're enjoying it as much as they can. And their complicated relationship is packed with moments of tenderness that undercut the resentment.

The film is shot in an off-handed way that pulls us into each scene. The great cinematographer Agnes Godard captures the staggering beauty of the Alps along with tellingly intimate moments, contrasting their grim block of flats with the soaring natural scenery. And while some of the side characters feel a little contrived, they help us understand Louise and Simon in ways that catch us aback. This is a raw, unusually sensitive portrait of two people whose personal connection drives them crazy even as it gives them hope.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol Review


Very Good
The M:I franchise once again goes rogue with its choice of directors, giving Bird his first live-action film. He takes an eye-popping approach to the genre, creating a guilty pleasure romp that balances corny plotting with muscled-up fun.

Ethan (Cruise) is broken out of a grim Russian prison by old colleague Dunn (Pegg) and new IMF agent Carter (Patton). But why was he in there to begin with? And why does his next mission result in a bombing of the Kremlin that's blamed on the IMF, which is now in Ghost Protocol mode: dissolved and vulnerable. To clear his name, Ethan, Dunn, Carter and analyst Brandt (Renner) head to Dubai and then Mumbai to stop megalomaniacal peacenik Hendricks (Nyqvist) from triggering a nuclear war.

A terrorist attack on the Kremlin in Moscow causes the President of the United States - believing that the Impossible Mission Force is behind it - to issue Ghost Protocol, thereby shutting down the entire force. Agent Ethan Hunt and his team are being sent to Washington, where they will be charged with the terrorist attacks but escapes - as part of a plan to allow him to work outside of the IMF - by assaulting fellow agent, Brandt, who he then has to work closely with in order to clear the IMF's name. Hunt is told that if he or any member of his team is caught or compromised, they will be charged as terrorists trying to start global nuclear war.

Lourdes Review


Very Good
This off-centre film looks like a paean to devotion with its stately images of pilgrims seeking healing at a holy Catholic site. And yet Hausner quietly and cleverly undermines this with a searing undercurrent about the mindlessness of organised religion.

Christine (Testud) is a prisoner of her body due to MS, and travels to Lourdes with a tour group of people hoping for a miracle. Accompanied by a team of nurses and assistants, they visit the famed grotto, are bathed in the sacred waters, attend services and are blessed by priests. Her nurse (Seydoux) has other things on her mind, and her roommate (Barbier) is a little too helpful.

And then the unexpected happens: Christine moves. But the pilgrims question why she's the one who was chosen when clearly others are more needy and deserving.
