who has already seen teddy, the brothers step behind the camera is not so surprising. Others, on the other hand, take the risk of hallucinations seriously. More or less sold out as a summer comedy, the film alternates schoolboy gags… and authentic scenes from shark movies, hence the audacity needed to accompaniment in nearly 500 theaters! believe it or not, year of the shark very clear One sea ​​teeth (Spielberg’s shadow hovers) Of terroir. An extraordinary concept.

In teddy So Boucherma imported the myth of the werewolf into rural France, which had a great touch of Carrie at Devil’s Ball Bonus. A mix of rebellious styles, which borrowed much from Bruno Dumont’s cinema and his description of the populace left by the large productions of Paris. Interest in the big show and canine transformation (suggested due to obvious budgetary limitations) remains low, compared to the fusion between the trajectory with the loss of the young Pariah, played by Anthony Bazon, the Pyrenean and the very special atmosphere of the setting. American-style film codes.

on sight year of the shark, it becomes clear that this precarious balance comes from two passions of the pair of directors: popular cinema and the French realm. Less humble than its predecessor, this new entry in his filmography is none other thana vast set of their wishes, all honest, The credits also end with thanks to Shark, without which the Shark movie would not have happened.

except that teddy, the inevitability of metamorphosis and the humility of the means of production were enough to tighten the stakes. borrowed from gambling jawopposite of this, shatter your puzzlechasing sketches of a frantic motion that one thinks survived a good episode camping paradise (if it exists at all) and authentic genre-esque sequences, including a surprisingly technically solid climax, without really tying them together. Despite its tendency to scatter, everything is inevitably fascinating, which further reinforces its strangeness.

Marina Fosse, Jean-Pascal Zadi and Christine Gauthier (discovered in) teddy, OK) So under pressure from seasonal workers and vacationers, take on the role of the coastal police responsible for looking after the big fish. and that’s not all ! At the same time a fictional comedy, an X-ray of the customs of the region, a whimsical film, a personal discovery and even political satire, year of the shark Takes advantage of its hybrid nature to eat a little bit in all the racksaccording to the wishes of its authors.

Result: The film is filled with random comedic scenes, pandemic references, and all kinds of thoughts, lined up one after the other. Some of them fly Like the character embodied by Kad Merrad – whose presence once again proves the inconsistency of the enterprise – is overjoyed to finally enjoy a little of their lives as a couple, especially by touching the skin of a husband. . Others very few, such as this parody of the times of the pros (or any other emanation organized by pseudo-editorialists), which invoke themselves in a quick way as the protagonists ride in the car.

In short, year of the shark don’t really know what water to swim in and confirms its singularity by losing its spectator, More than a daring superimposition of completely opposite styles, it becomes a messy and kamikaze compilation of exaggerated homages and multiple ambitions. Unsurprisingly, its actors have fun like crazy, starting with Marina Foss and Jean-Pascal Zadi. And we find ourselves smiling in the face of the prejudices that parade the pell-mail across the screen, using the piece love For example, naps as a running gag.

Because if the movie crashes too often, it has to be recognized, their apparent enthusiasm is strong, and reassures young French filmmakers of the ability to bridge the gap between genres, even if it means flooding them with joy. And just for that, we wish all the best to this Impossible Summer Shark movie as well as its directors. Can’t wait for them to attack Kaiju Eiga.
