  • Pipim's rating of the film Joan the Pope

    Un peu déçu, la bande-annonce est très concentrée, et cette phrase: "il y a un abîme entre les choses et les mots" est vraiment superbe. Le film manque cruellement d'incarnation. Certains choix formels desservent le film, le traitement numérique et les cadrages très formels, la mise en scène est plan-plan. Certains paysages sont magnifiques et les plans sur les animaux sont tous réussis, hormis le diaporama de la fin
