Clovis Cornillac, Pierre Lemaitre, Lea Drucker, Benoît Poelvoorde, Clovis Cornillac (2h14),NOVEMBER 9, 2022 IN THE CINEMA

Woman of the situation

The killer line: “- Be careful! – I’m ready for anything!”

Pitch: February 1927. After her father’s death, Madeleine has to take over the head of the financial empire she inherited. But the men he’s closest to don’t see him that way and band together to destroy him. Madeleine will have to do everything possible to survive and rebuild her life. This task is even more difficult in powerless France, which is observing the first colors of the flame that will destroy Europe…

Three reasons to love it:

1. The Colors of Fire is an adaptation of the novel by Pierre Lemaître. The dialogues were written by the author himself.

2. Dangerously, the film shows the struggle of a woman in a patriarchal society to assert herself in a male environment.

3. We love the five-star staff. Clovis Cornillac is a master, Lea Drucker is simple and moving!

How to ensure the continuity of the monarchy? These are the questions facing the queen. This season promises to be much more sultry than the previous ones with a new cast. In England, too, this causes the strongest indignation of the supporters of Windsor. On the other side of the channel, we promise you it will taste like a good pint of Pimm’s!
