The social documentary: “Remember My Name”
A group of unaccompanied minors, having illegally joined the Spanish enclave of Melilla, Morocco, dance fiercely to compete in Amazing talent. A brief parenthesis in community before the fateful age of 18, when they will cross the sea, inexorably. Sensitive and very soft.
At 11:20 p.m. on France 3. Documentary by Elena Molina (Spain, 2023). 1h15. Unpublished.
The cinephile docu: “Helen Mirren: a royal actress”
She has the aura of a queen. Who is it, who is it? The narrator of Barbie, gone. But the British Helen Mirren has much more in her CV than the last candy pink blockbuster of the summer of 2023. And also the panache of having succeeded, in her roles, in diverting her image from a sex symbol into an instrument of power.
At 10:30 p.m. on Arte. Documentary by Nicolas Maupied (France / Luxembourg, 2022). 55 mins. Unpublished.
The pas-docu: “Charlie’s Angels: the angels go wild”
Because we have to wait until the hour of the second part of the evening docs (or because we’re tired of the docs!). If you’re tired of belote as a family or if the idea of launching a long game of 7 Wonders discourages you in advance, so be patient in (good) company of these funny ladies…
At 8:55 p.m. on RTL9. Directed by McG (USA, 2003). 1h45. With Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu.
The online documentary: “kyiv, an Opera at war”
Since the beginning of the war, season after season, the curtain continues to rise at the National Opera of Ukraine, in kyiv. On Arte.tv, this burning documentary series follows the staff and artists of the Opera who go on stage to resist, by and thanks to art.
To see on Arte.tv. Documentary series written by Aliona Zagurovska and Priscilla Puzzato, directed by Éric de Lavarène (episode 1/4, France, 2023-2024). 26 mins. Unpublished.
