Is Elvis the best movie of the week?

To help you make your choices, here are the 3 films of the week best rated by the press and spectators on AlloCiné!*


1st: Works and Days – Part 1 – Part 2 – Part 3 – 4.3/5

“In eight hours and five chapters, CW Winter and Anders Edström explore the natural cycles of peasant life in Japan. An unforgettable immersive experience.” By Arnaud Hallet (Les Inrockuptibles)

“A moving experience that mixes fiction and reality where the permanence of things but also their finitude pierces.” By Marius Chapuis (Release)

2nd: Elvis – 3.8/5

“With his love of the kaleidoscope, Baz Luhrmann plunges Elvis Presley into a baroque and circacian universe. Disconcerting at first, remarkable thereafter.” By Aurélien Allin (CinemaTeaser)

“Baz Luhrmann escapes extravagance by focusing on capturing the rise of the good little guy from Tennessee through the eyes of his manager, Colonel Parker, played by Tom Hanks.” By Stéphane Dreyfus (La Croix)

3rd: El buen patron – 3.6/5

“Each situation, however tragic, is swept away with a devastating humour. Taking up all the codes – paternalism, productivism, droit de seigneur included – the tics of entrepreneurial language, Leon de Aranoa turns them around and hijacks them with greed.” By Marie-José Sirach (L’Humanité)

“Javier Bardem shines as the paternalistic and clumsy CEO of a company where everything goes down the drain. A particularly tasty social comedy.” By Eric Neuhoff (Le Figaro)


1st: Elvis – 4.3/5

“Baz Luhrmann signs – in my opinion – the best film of his career. This (true) biopic offers a dynamic, modern staging, overflowing with imagination and hooks us from the first minute. A musical fresco in segregationist America, and later Hippie.” By Maxime M.

“In short, great American cinema, made with taste and a touch of visual madness. Excellent entertainment, you come out with a smile.” By Langlois Colin

2nd: El buen patron – 3.63/5

“The staging is sober and gives way to a top-of-the-range interpretation, dominated by Javier Bardem, downright sublime in a multifaceted role, which he coats with all his disturbing bonhomie.” By sydney

“Javier Bardem is excellent in the role of the entrepreneur who is going through the worst week of his life. He really has the film on his shoulders. Almudena Amor is radiant too. The film is rhythmic and to be tasted. Honestly, go see it .” By sydney

3rd: Tastes and colors – 3.58/5

“A deeply touching story, breathtaking actors, and a furious desire to listen to all the songs of the film over and over!” By Lea Lagesse

“And we can see that Rebecca Marder (Marcia) in addition to being an excellent actress, is also a good singer. Very well written, “Les Goûts et les couleurs” is a successful and extremely endearing film.” By Dangerous Abuse
