CRITICAL – Before her palme d’or for “Titane”, the French director was already making an impression with an original cannibalistic horror film. Serious is to see where to see again, this night at 1 am. Thrills guaranteed.
You can love horror movies and have a small heart that beats. Julia Ducournau did not hide her tears when she received the Palme d’Or awarded by Spike Lee last July at the Cannes Film Festival. The 37-year-old Frenchwoman, second woman director to win the Grail after Jane Campion for The Piano Lesson in 1993, topped the competition’s veterans (Verhoeven, Moretti, Dumont, Farhadi, Audiard, Ozon) with Titanium. A strange, exciting, mutant film with an unrecognizable and overwhelming Vincent Lindon as a firefighter captain overwhelmed by the desire for a child.
Before this Titanium in gold, there is Serious, first attempt and first sensation on the Croisette at the Critics’ Week in 2016.
Serious marks the spirits because it stands out from all the sadly programmatic films that clutter the screens. He surprises in every scene. It is not entirely contained in its entirely enticing synopsis.
