Cinema, streaming, VOD, TV… Find advice from the editorial staff every Friday.

The film in theaters: Wonka by Paul King

Go there if you’re crazy about Timothée Chalamet, of course (he’s great as a wacky and battered young chocolatier). Go there if you like the delirium of Paul King (we navigate between heist film, racy British comedy and pure emotion). Go there if you like big, colorful and uplifting musicals. Go for it if you like seeing Hugh Grant transformed into an orange dwarf. In short, go see Wonkathere is bound to be something you will like.

What’s new at the cinema this week

Series : The Crownseason 6 – part 2

This time, she hangs up the crown. The last six episodes of the royal drama were put online on Thursday and recount the sovereign’s entry into the 21st century, painfully marked by the death of her sister then her mother, but also by the meeting so romantic of William with Kate. An uneven final chapter, but which has the merit of putting Elizabeth back at the heart of the plot, for the majestic farewell that she deserved.

The film in streaming: Chicken Run: The Nuggets Menace by Sam Fell

The birds from the Aardman studio return, 23 years after the first film! A stop-motion adventure that goes at 100 miles an hour, full of burlesque gags, and which plays like a trendy infiltration film Impossible mission. Tom Cruise better watch out.

The short movie : The Actor (or the surprising virtue of incomprehension) by Hugo David and Raphaël Quenard

Shot during downtime during the filming of the excellent Dog of the breakage, this fake documentary in the running for the César features an alter ego of Raphaël Quenard stupid as a broom and egocentric, who quotes Prévert and philosophizes on the time it takes an image to be processed by our brain. A summit for all quenardos.

The film on TV: Lost Illusions by Xavier Giannoli

Big winner of the 2022 Césars, Lost Illusions recounts the arrival in Paris of Lucien de Rubempré, a young, long-toothed provincial. With an impressive production and a brilliant cast (Cécile de France, Vincent Lacoste, Xavier Dolan, etc.) gathered around the revelation Benjamin Voisin, Giannoli destroys the small world of Parisian journalism under the Restoration. And underlines all the modernity of Balzac’s text.

Watch Illusions Perdues, for the first time free to air on Sunday at 9:10 p.m. on France 2

The film on VOD: Ninja Turtles: Teenage Years by Jeff Rowe and Kyler Spears

New era for the franchise, which offers a crazy animated film about the youth of the Turtles. Fun, funny and ultra-paced, Ninja Turtles: Teenage Years adopts an inimitable visual style, both messy (you would think that the drawings were made with a BIC pen) and perfectly clear.

The classic : The 36th chamber of Shaolin by Lau Kar-leung (1978)

It’s hard to choose a film from the fourteen presented in the Shaw Brothers cycle currently on Mubi. The romantics will rather go towards The Golden Swallow of King Hu, the radicals towards One arm killed them all by Chang Cheh… Well, we might as well start with the cornerstone, right? Released in 1974, The 36th chamber of Shaolin tells the story of the kung fu training of a young rebel (Gordon Liu) in the famous Shaolin school. A stainless classic.
