Is En Corps the best movie of the week? – Movie News

To help you choose, here are the 3 films of the week best valued by the press and viewers on AlloCiné!*

Emmanuelle Jacobson-Roques – CQMM


1st tie: Icarus – 3.7/5

“The film remains more adventurous and morally ambiguous than most animated productions whose standards it doesn’t embrace.” By the editor (widescreen)

“The filmmaker brilliantly revisits the myth through a setting accented with ancient tragedy and virtuosic animation.” By Xavier Leherpeur (The New Observer)

Return to Reims (Fragments) – 3.7/5

“Périot signs above all with this mosaic of images and the text of Eribon a capital film, poetic and political, a necessary and rarely seen representation of the working class.” By Michaël Mélinard (L’Humanite)

“Through Haenel, other struggles are also emerging, other liberations: the filmmaker can thus convincingly trace the domination of the bourgeoisie through the struggle of the workers.” By Jérôme d’Estais (The Seventh Obsession)

3rd: Freak Out – 3.6/5

“A true declaration of love to Italian culture, that of the anonymous, the humble and the marginalized, this wonderful monster encourages a poetic perception that spits up the norm, where superpowers define the infinite superiority of art over the world. In this, the gesture is also political: exacerbating aesthetic impurity, hybridity, Gabriele Mainetti fits naturally into his gallery of freaks By Olivier Rossignot and Alexandre Lebrac (

“A fresco of more than two hours without dead time where poetry, action and adventure merge wonderfully”. By Thierry Chèze (West of France)


1st: In the body – 4.2/5

“Wonderful tribute to the dancers (rs). Brilliant music and delicacy of the script. A very, very beautiful film about dance, friendship and always family. Thank you for this beautiful moment.” By Regine Buchholtz

“A magnificent film by Cédric Klapish, grace and beauty are constantly present. Dance is very present, but I felt it above all as a film of physical and mental reconstruction. […]”. By Pierre Siné

2nd: Aristocrats – 4/5

“It is modern and furiously elegant. We can only recommend that you share his daily life, imbued with a sensibility close to Ryusuke Hamaguchi (Senses, Asako I&II), the other explorer of feelings in Japan, whom we often think of in front of this work so profoundly delicate, revealing a young director barely 36 years old.” by Arnaud

“The film follows these young women, with remarkable empathy and delicacy. Everything is refined in this film, the staging, the performances, the narrative” By Goéland

3rd: Freak Out – 3.8/5

“Gabriele Mainetti signs a multi-genre film, baroque and modern, sometimes crazy, always fantastic, but whose audacity deserves a certain detour. A very good cinematographic moment to see, criticize and recommend.” by Selene

“Freaks Out is a schaffio (a slap in the face) that manages to exceed our wildest expectations in every way!” by sydney
