A Magical Christmas Movie: A Boy Named Christmas
We are in the 18th century, in Finland. The young Nikolas, nicknamed Christmas since his birth, sets out on a journey in search of his father, who has gone in search of the legendary people of the Elves, the only people capable of returning magic to the world.
It’s almost Christmas and nothing better than a new movie to celebrate the holidays as it should. Adapted from the 2015 novel by Matt Haig, A Boy Named Christmas is precisely the ideal film to marvel at and rediscover all the magic of the event.
Following young Nikolas on his adventure, one has the impression of literally being between the pages of a storybook. Foundational drama, mysterious quest, talking animals, varied and varied companions … All the expected elements are there, sometimes with fun variations and a refreshing second degree.
If this well-known structure removes some of the surprises, we let ourselves be carried away with the pleasure of this enchanting journey to the borders of a mysterious world, full of intriguing and funny places and characters (in particular, the hilarious Miika mouse). This wonderful and magical world effectively enchants and will delight the grumpiest of viewers.
Everything works very well thanks to the quality of the staging and the artistic direction. In fact, A Boy Named Christmas has sets, costumes and visuals worthy of the best film productions, it is visually very successful and it is full of ingenuity. A feast for the eyes.
If it is not the most original film, A Child Named Christmas perfectly reinvents its imposed structure, and finds a true identity of its own in the style of the story. He also has a high-quality international cast for him (Maggie Smith, Jim Broadbent, Kristen Wigg), and he will know how to please the whole family. The film is broadcast on Canal + this December 17 at 9:00 p.m..

An absurd and hilarious parody: The Flame
For nine weeks in a sublime villa, thirteen women will compete to seduce Marc, an airplane pilot, and they will try to light in him … The flame.
French adaptation of the Burning Love program produced by Ben Stiller, himself a parody of the American Bachelor program, La Flamme is a variation with a golden cast and absurd humor … very particular.
Do reality TV shows bother you? The good thing is that this series is definitely for you. The Flame teases with delight and a corrosive tone these degrading and numbing shows, and their often … limited main leads. Pushing the show’s stunts to their extreme limits, the series extracts all the shame, discomfort, and humor, in the pure spirit of The Office and Arrested Development cults.
To do this, it makes perfect use of its cast as unlikely as five stars: Géraldine Nakache, Leïla Bekhti, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Ana Girardot, Florence Foresti or even Pierre Niney. All of these beautiful people step out of their usual type of role to wonderfully portray the absurd, and as the director of this great outrageous, Jonathan Cohen is in his prime, embodying stupidity like no other.
Be careful though, La Flamme exudes a very particular humor, which will not necessarily appeal to everyone. And even fans will find that the series sometimes lacks precision, balance, and efficiency in some episodes.
However, the series offers great moments of laughter, changes the usual proposals of French television, and will make you laugh during its 9 episodes … and waiting for its season 2.
