In A life, Anthony Hopkins plays Sir Nicholas Winton to reveal his incredible true, yet little-known, story. In Prague in 1938, the city is on the verge of falling to the Nazis. But Nicholas Winton, a London banker, does everything he can to save hundreds of children from concentration camps. Thanks to him, 669 Jewish children will find refuge in England. Fifty years later, he was invited to share his story with the world on a British television show. But he has no idea that the children who survived thanks to his determination are also in the audience…

Get out the tissues because Une vie is a stunning and extremely moving film. This biopic dedicated to a remarkably heroic man but ultimately relatively little known to the general public allows us to pay tribute to him. His major role in the survival of so many Jewish children before the outbreak of World War II earned him the nickname “British Schindler.” He was knighted in 2003 by Queen Elizabeth II for services to humanity and was made an honorary citizen of Prague.

Allociné spectators are full of praise for the feature film: Une vie obtains an average score of 4.2 out of 5. The press is also very enthusiastic, giving it an average score of 3.3. The acting is particularly praised, as is its very strong storyline. Enough to make up for a staging considered classic and sober.

With an average rating of 3.5 out of 5 given by the press and AlloCiné spectators, The Kingdom of the Abysses is the rare gem to see with the family this week -end, with children from 10 years old. We follow Shenxiua, a 10-year-old girl sucked into the sea depths during a family cruise. She then discovers that the abyss is populated by incredible creatures. The Kingdom of the Abyss promises us a wonderful odyssey in which Shenxiua tries to find the importance of her family.

This animated film is a real eye-catcher. Visually, it is a success, mixing 3D and influences from more traditional Chinese ink painting to offer graphics in rich and vivid colors. The Abyss Realmwas presented during the 2023 Annecy Festival and promises to make you experience a whirlwind of emotions. For those looking for a little poetry, The Kingdom of the Abyss can be seen in cinemas now.

In 2019, Until the Guard by Xavier Legrand received numerous Césars. With Le Successeur, the director marks his comeback. Ellias Barnes, played by Marc-André Grondin (The First Day of the Rest of Your Life; Spotless), is the new artistic director of a prestigious French haute couture house. When he learns of the death of his father following a heart attack, to whom he has not spoken for years, he will be confronted with his demons.

The creator goes to Quebec to settle his father's estate. Ellias then realizes that he has not only inherited his father's fragile heart but also heavy secrets that he will have to manage. Enough to make him lose his footing…

The Successor happily flirts with the thriller genre to keep spectators in suspense. The press gives it an average rating of 3.3 out of 5 while AlloCiné spectators are more cheerful with an average of 3.6. Marc-André Grondin's performance is highlighted several times, as is the effective staging.

Alivetakes us behind the scenes of a prestigious reporting show. Gabrielle has just joined the team and must find her place among reporters faced with a profession that is changing with ever fewer resources and facing new information channels. They will do everything to try to rediscover the faith of their beginnings and reinvent themselves. To do this, they can count on their common passion for the search for truth, their sense of humor and solidarity.

Thus, Vivants invites us to accurately discover the pitfalls of the profession of investigative journalist. The feature film can count on a 5-star cast. Alice Isaaz, Roschdy Zem and Vincent Elbaz are in top form to embody this group of endearing journalists. Broadcast in cinemas since February 14, 2024, it's time to discover Vivants.
