“Flee, I follow you”, “Evolution”, “Cut! »… The films that will be shown this week


Some of the films from the Cannes selection hit French cinemas this week, such as Cut!the schoolboy and Michel Hazanavicius’ affectionate homage to the craft of filmmaking, even with large zombies spotting, or even brother and sister, the last family points settlement tournament directed by Arnaud Desplechin. However, new things keep coming to the big screens, like the rushed punk of Japanese animation junkie or the fugue in sequence recordings ofevolution.

“Flee me, I follow you”: love on a sitting cat

It’s the simplest story in the world: a boy meets a girl and it will take them all the time of a movie to realize the love between them.
