Bad news: if the sun made a brief appearance in France this week, it seems that it has decided to hide again for the weekend. If you want to have a good time, going to the movies is always nice, especially when the weather is not good.

You still need to know what to go see in the dark rooms… But for that, you can count on us! Like every week, we bring you a selection of freshly released films. If you've already seen (and rewatched) Dune: Second Part, here are four feature films that are worth a look.

Even before its release, The Life of My Mothermet with some success in several festivals and ceremonies. He notably received the audience prize at the Angoulême Francophone Film Festival. William Lebghil (nominated for the César for best male hopeful for First Year in 2019) and Agnès Jaoui, who has just won an honorary César, share the 'plays and plays a son and a mother who meet again after two years of not seeing each other. Fanciful and excessive, Judith above all seems to suffer from an illness (this is what the trailer implies) and her return to the life of Pierre, a successful 33-year-old florist, is not without consequences.

The life of my mother flirts between emotions and humor, a recipe that seems to win the hearts of spectators and the press. For a first feature film, director Julien Carpentier has everyone in agreement with an average rating of 3.65 out of 5 on AlloCiné.

Head to the staff room of a German college. While a series of thefts take place in the teachers' lounge, a teacher leads the investigation. Very quickly, his discoveries will shake the entire establishment. Behind a succinct synopsis, director İlker Çatak succeeds in offering us a captivating and suffocating thriller where paranoia reigns supreme. This series of thefts will, in fact, create a terrible climate of suspicion and the events will quickly take on disproportionate proportions.

Nominated for the 2024 Oscars as “Best International Film”, La Teachers’ Lounge won the awards for best film, best direction, best screenplay, best actress for Leonie Benesch and best editing at the Deutscher Filmpreis 2023, which are the German equivalent of the Césars. The press and AlloCiné spectators gave it an excellent rating of 3.8 out of 5.

On this International Women's Day, HLM Pussy comes at just the right time. Nora El Hourch's feature film (her first!) tackles strong, but necessary, themes. In HLM Pussy, we follow Amina, Djeneba and Zineb, three inseparable teenagers. In their suburbs, they are familiar with sexual harassment. When one of them is the victim of sexual assault, they decide to film the attacker and launch the HLM Pussy account to denounce him. Social networks are doing their job and video is gaining momentum. But the pressures are great. Will Amina, Djeneba and Zineb be able to resist and carry out their fight??

Ode to friendship and women, HLM Pussywants to free the floor and promises to do so in a refreshing way. The three main actresses seem invested, allowing us to become attached to their characters. For a first film, HLM Pussy is very promising. Although the press is harsh with a rating of 2.8 out of 5, AlloCiné spectators are more lenient and give it an average of 3.1.

Finally, it's not yet too late to discover Debaclein dark rooms. Selected at the Sundace festival, Débâcle won over spectators and the press on AlloCiné with respective scores of 3.7 and 3.5 out of 5. Years after a summer Upsetting, Eva returns to her native village… With a huge block of ice in the trunk of her car. Enough to face his past once and for all.

Dutch art-house film, this is your last chance to discover Débâcle, released in cinemas since February 28, 2024.
