Is Revenge of the Glitter Shrimp the best movie of the week? – Movie news

To help you make your choice, here are the 3 films of the week that received the best press and viewer reviews on AlloCiné!*


1st: Vortex – 3.9/5

“This bias can be disconcerting at first, especially when you love the director for his dirty, explosive, and sometimes trying side (Climax), but the film ends, as the title’s vortex suggests, by sucking up the gaze.” Cyprien Caddeo (Humanity)

“Gaspar Noé departs from his usual universe but remains faithful to his style and chronicles this process, making it an experience that is by turns exhausting or moving, anecdotal or fascinating.” By Nicolas Marcadé (Les Fiches du Cinéma)

2nd place: A Chiara – 3.7/5

“This is a precious film, haunted by powerful visions, torn by heartbreaking moments and brilliant scenes of suspense.” By Jacques Mandelbaum (Die Welt)

“Camera in hand, in a feverish style akin to documentary, the Italian filmmaker embraces the stubborn gaze of his young heroine, who is suddenly entering adulthood.” By Yannick Vely Paris Match

3rd: A whole night without knowing it – 3.67/5

“At the same time a daily chronicle of a university occupation and a kaleidoscope of poetic visions, the film succeeds in bringing a little light into the great totalitarian night.” By Thomas Grignon “Payal Kapadia’s bias translates the drama of the present that doesn’t change, a present prisoner of the past, whether haunted by a lost love or the conservatism of an Indian society that stifles its youth.” By Bruno Deruisseau (Les Inrockuptibles)


1st: Come on kids – 4.2/5

“I had the opportunity to preview the film at the Grand Rex last week. A magnificent portrait of today’s youth, masterfully filmed by the duo Demaizière-Teurlai (The Next Generation, Lourdes). Run-y!” By Romain P.

“A true masterpiece of talented directors. A slap in the face to education, the beauty of teachers, and the building of a new society! The soundtrack is exceptional!” By Sydney

2nd Place: Revenge of the Glitter Shrimp – 4.0/5

“FANTASTIC!! The first work was hilarious and had accomplished the feat of being funny AND addressing a social issue. Making a second one was risky, but it’s a largely winning bet!! It’s very funny.” By Nikolaus G.

“I previewed the film and I loved it, the humor that doesn’t prevent you from passing a few messages as well… Excellent dialogues… Lots of tenderness for the characters too… Can’t wait the 3rd part :)” By i.neron

3rd place: Vertebrae – 3.9/5

“Every work by Gaspar Noé is an experience, often traumatic, sometimes based on provocation and hallucinated images. Vortex is put in a different register, stripped down and falsely documentary, but what it demands of the viewer is immense in this black study that leaves no room for the imagination.” Through Sydney

“The session begins, the room is immediately silent, and after a sluggish first half hour, the scenes follow one another before ending with a grandiose finale, both emotionally and visually.” By Charles Martin
