Born In 68 [nes En 68] Review


Excellent
After the frothy Cockles & Muscles, Ducastel and Martineau turn to this ambitious multi-generational epic that, even at three hours, feels too brisk.

We actually want more time with these fascinating people.

During the student demonstrations of 1968 Paris, Catherine (Casta) is pregnant with the child of her boyfriend Yves (Renier) and living in free-love happiness with their friend Herve (Tregouet). They help set up a commune in a country farmhouse, getting to know local farmers Serge and Maryse (Citti and Citti).

Cote D'azur Review


Very Good
If a cool upscale French family invited you to spend the summer at their charming chateau on the Riviera, you'd go, right? So would I. That's the promise of Cote D'Azur: a funny, sexy, and very French diversion that's as weightless as a Mediterranean breeze.

Dad Marc (Gilbert Melki) and Mom Béatrix (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) have brought their two teenage children Laura (Sabrina Seyvecou) and Charly (Romain Torres) to the family manse for another seaside summer. Laura soon takes off for Portugal on the back of her boyfriend's motorcycle, leaving Charly alone. To liven things up, he invites his best friend Martin (Edouard Collin) to join in on the vacation fun. Cue the sexual hijinks.

My Life On Ice Review


Very Good
It's Etienne's (Jimmy Tavares) 16th birthday, and his doting, widowed mother (Ariane Ascaride) has given him the gift he most wanted: a camcorder. So begins My Life on Ice, an unusual coming-of-age story set in the provincial city of Rouen, France that includes several French twists along the way.

All we see of Etienne's world is what he shows us through his cinema verite viewfinder. In fact, we see little of Etienne himself until he gets his hands on a tripod and discovers the remote control gadget in the bottom of the camcorder box. He takes the camera everywhere he goes and uses it constantly, taping his town, his horny schoolmates, and his training sessions at the ice rink, where he practices hard to maintain his national ranking in figure skating. He even tapes his mother every time she emerges from the bathroom so he can chronicle all of her frilly lingerie. (This being France, she has a lot of it.)
