What movies to discover tonight on Prime Video and Salto?
A Musical Classic: West Side Story (Prime Video)
On the West Side, a poor neighborhood in New York City, two rival gangs, the Sharks and the Jets, vie for control of the street. But soon Tony, a young man from the Jets, will fall in love with Maria, the sister of one of the Sharks.
Although the Steven Spielberg remake has just hit French screens, it is the perfect time to discover (or see again) this monument of the musical, released in 1961.
Directed by Robert Wise (Melody of Happiness, La Maison du Diable, Star Trek: The Movie), West Side Story is a model of the genre. The staging, chiseled, mastered and sublime, transcends this modern reinterpretation of Romeo and Juliet. It is always a pleasure to listen to the formidable music of Leonard Bernstein, including the cult America and Somewhere.
Beyond its frustrated love story, the film deals with the issue of American immigration, racism, and social conditioning. Much more than a light musical, West Side Story is also a largely political film, one that still resonates so clearly today.
This “musical for those who do not like musicals” is a safe bet, and the guarantee of a great moment of emotions, music, colors and dances, in the purest tradition of classic American cinema. Simply a great movie.

A fun and thought-provoking romantic comedy: Love at First Sight at Nothing Hill (Leap)
William Thacker owns a bookstore in the heart of London’s Notting Hill. One day he sees the most famous Hollywood star, Anna Scott, walk into his store. For a series of occasions, the two beings will live an extraordinary encounter.
There’s nothing like one of the best romantic comedies in the world to get you excited for the weekend. And when this one is invented for us by one of the genre’s masters, screenwriter Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually), we know we’re going to have a good time.
The setting in the lovable neighborhood of Nothing Hill is enchanting, and this unexpected romance between a common man and an international star has all the ingredients to please everyone: humor, love, drama and scenes of diabolical efficiency that will melt even the most reckless hearts.
The Hugh Grant / Julia Roberts duo play their score brilliantly, he awkwardly unsure of himself and she an actress crushed under the weight of his glory. His alchemy works wonders, and he reserves a few moments touched by grace.
Of course, you will most likely know this cult movie by heart, but as the holiday season approaches, Love at First Sight at Nothing Hill is the little boost of romance, humor, and poetry you definitely need. Please note that the movie is also available on Amazon Prime Video.
