The nuggets of the week… just for you!

crisis of faith

After three years living the American Dream, the comedian decides to return to France. He misses his family and his friends. At least, that’s the official answer he’s quick to give everyone…because Gad didn’t come home (alone) for his mother’s couscous. No, he is another woman he meets in Paris… the Virgin Mary.

three reasons to love

  1. Director for the second time, Gad Elmaleh opts for a tender family comedy centered around a mid-life crisis.
  2. Your main playmates? His sister and his parents, Régine and David, whom the star did not hesitate to direct with a masterful hand.
  3. We had fun watching famous guests like Roschdy Zem or Jérémie Dethelot parade before the camera.

In theaters November 16

By Gad Elmaleh. With Gad Elmaleh, Régine Elmaleh, David Elmaleh… (1h30).

Winter spirit, pitch black

Nathalie Weber is a writer who suffers from blank page syndrome. One winter night, on Christmas Eve, she finally finds inspiration and writes until dawn. At the same time, several hundred miles away, in a Romanian orphanage run by nuns, a 16-year-old girl named Iona commits suicide. As she prepares for New Year’s Eve with her daughter, Nathalie is plagued by strange visions. She even thinks she sees the silhouette of a man behind her window. That’s when she receives a call that will terrify her… Inspired by Laura’s novel
Kasischke, this new series sees Audrey Fleurot changing her flamboyant red for a polar blonde. The atmosphere is heavy, the suspense is at its peak and the Christmas spirit is not really there…

In Art from November 10

By Cyril Mennegun, with Audrey Fleurot, Cédric Kahn, Lily Taïeb…

China and its wonders

As sites like Selency become a hit and online sales of vintage items skyrocket, we’re loving this wonderful book that highlights thirty-two festive tables made up solely of vintage or found plates. The opportunity to get inspired before New Year’s Eve and study the menus carefully crafted by the authors. An invitation to hunt for treasures, to explore the old cupboards and attics of our grandparents and to sublimate kitsch without measure.
