Last sunday night, I went to the cinema with my best friend. We decided to watch the movie Captain Fantastic, a dramatic comedy by Matt Ross.

This movie is at a time funny and sorrowful. It’s the story of a family composed of a father with his six childs. They decided to live out of the society, in the forest at the North-West of the USA, because they are anarchists. The father wants to make his childs perfect adults. They don’t go to school but their father gives them a lot of books to read, they make sport, they run into the forest, they rock climbing, and they do some exercises to channel their energy like a kind of yoga. They also know how to gun a deer.

One day, their mother who was sick: she had psychological disorders, suicide her. Ubset, the family decide to continue to live as they already done, but they decided to go to the burial of the mother with Steve, their own bus to be the most discreet possible. It’s complicated because the mother’s family doesn’t like the life she decided to lead. The movie is so based on the adventures of this family to travel the country to finally go to the funeral who are not as they had to do because the mother is buddhist and her funerals are christians. The little family finally decide to make the perfect burial to her, with songs, dance, colors, and fire.

I loved the universe of this movie: it was so colorful by the outfits, but also magestic with the big forests, the waterfalls, and the animals. The characters are all endearing: the childs had all a peculiarity : Bo, the older wants to go to the university, Zaja, the younger knows a lot of thing for her young age, Rellian doesn’t like to don’t live like the others, Vespir and Kielyr are always together and they are really good at archary and climbing, Nei likes to celebrate Noam Chomsky Day, their own Christmas. I wanted to share my reviews about this movie for maybe make you watch it.

Donnie Darko

Today, I’m going to talk about Donnie Darko. I’ve seen this film with my friends a few weeks ago, and I’ve loved it.

It's a particular story which is a little bit hard to understand because we are trapped between two worlds which are themselves trapped between two time spaces.
We can follow the life of Donnie Darko, a teenager, who has mental disorders. This movie deal with different subjects like love, sacrifice, time travel and existentialism. October the 2nd, a reactor of a plane crashed on Donnie's house. Thankfully for him, he followed a voice in his head who obliged him to leave his house, so he slept in a square. The next day, he learns what happened by seeing cops in front of his house.
After this event, a lot of things will happen to him. The voice he heard is Frank's voice, a big scary rabbit who his a Donnie's imaginary friend, and he told him that the World's end is for 28days, 6hours, 42minutes and 12seconds.
Donnie will obey to Frank during those days, and he will make bad things like flood his high school, burn a motivational coach's house while his girlfriend was sleeping at the cinema where they went together. 27 days after the World's end prediction, after an other hallucination, Donnie, his friends and his girlfriend go to Grande-Synthe house but things turn wrong : his girlfriend dies. The killer is Frank, his sisters's boyfriend, he wears the rabbit costume, so Donnie shoot him at the right eye. The World's end day has come, and Donnie sees a storm from which his mother and sister's airplane appears. This plane is the same we can see at the beginning of the movie, so he lose his reactor as the first plane, but this time, Donnie is in his bed and die.

It's really hard to explain the story because there is a lot of details which can make us understand that we are between two time spaces, I really recommend this movie which is one of my favorites.
