D: Alain Gomis (Aujourd’hui).
S: Véro Tshanda Beya, Gaetan Claudia, Papi Mpaka.
Harshness of lack of social safety nets depiction softened, by ace soundtrack and unsentimental character bonding.
FINAL PORTRAIT ★½☆☆☆
D: Stanley Tucci (Big Night).
S: Geoffrey Rush, Armie Hammer, Clémence Poésy, Tony Shalhoub, James Faulkner, Sylvie Testud.
If not for Geoffrey Rush this would be a TV movie. Poorly made, but dialogue and camaraderie pass the time.
WILD MOUSE (Wilde Maus) ★★★★☆
D: Josef Hader.
S: Josef Hader, Pia Hierzegger, Georg Friedrich, Jörg Hartmann, Denis Moschitto.
KLOWN, TONI ERDMANN, MY GREAT NIGHT, European comedies have been knocking it out of the park lately. WILD MOUSE joins them.
