  1. Gilles's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    De trop longues longueurs saturées de dialogues sans ellipses quasiment. À cause de cette "illustration" de la banlieue, l'histoire avance trop lentement (le film pourrait durer 1h20). Le héros masculin n'est pas crédible en amoureux atone et bien triste. Heureusement, il y a le jus et le sourire de la prof de français, jouée par une très présente Carole Franck.

  3. Lahaye's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    Magnifique film, jamais caricaturale toujours juste et poignant. Les seconds rôles sont magistraux.

  4. NCMBianchi's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

  5. Bruno's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    nunca somos o suficiente, nos esquivaram, nos esquivamos, é um teatro, mas esta aforística nem de perto carrega a energia do filme, a energia de seus momentos de sossego, os arregalares de olhos, os moveres de braços, os caminhares, os encolheres de ombros. Porquê esta peça, e não outra? A stôra comenta, somos prisioneiros da nossa condição social, nos reconhecemos noutras vestes...

  6. ikkini's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    Un film dont la puissance doit tant au génie de Kéchiche dans la direction d'acteurs que de sa puissance à capter au delà du réel une vérité.

  7. hellobonjour's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    Love watching kids act more than anything

  8. Tiphaine Tatin de Lattre's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    Funfact: in french theaters, the film was subtitled in "proper french", for those who couldn't keep up with the evolution of language.

  9. Klaus-hart's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    Justesse (impressionnante) des dialogues, du ton, de l'expression, même dans des scènes complexes où tout le monde parle en même temps ; justesse (également impressionnante) des sentiments. La langue est pauvre, défectueuse, les codes de la cité sont violents, mais les sentiments, au fond, sont riches, complexes. La marge se situe entre la communication et le ressenti. Le film rend cela avec brio.

Esta sexta, dia 6/12, é exibido A ESQUIVA. A sessão começa às 19h15 e tem o preço único de 4€. TODOS AO NIMAS!

  12. Bert Corten's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    Wanna learn something about the kids in the banlieues de paris and see a very funny and genuine lovestory at the same time? Then see this unusual, molière-ish film. Loved it!

  13. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    "The chandelier is beautiful, but you don't see it." Kechiche's version/vision of the banlieues is at once neo-realist and classical, deftly juggling its clever construction -- I especially liked the conference of the birds nested within the film's ongoing, noisy conference of the teens -- with a thoroughly grounded, involving drama. The "human drama," really, in which our scripts are betrayed between the lines.

  15. Fidel Antonio Medel's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    Abdel Kechiche dissects teenage romance and high school drama (the superficial kind that is) with the hilarious but sharp “L'esquive (Games of Love and Chance)”. In high school, the trivial becomes life and death situations and verbal squabbles are relentless. Sandwiched in the funny scenes is a disturbing and long sequence that felt like a forceful punch in the gut. http://pixelatedpopcorn.blogspot.com/

  16. Theolini's rating of the film Games of Love and Chance

    Incredibly well-written, well-conducted and well-edited. It's like a miracle.
