Three films and a retrospective to watch this week

“Freud’s last session”

Adaptation of a play about a fictional meeting between Sigmund Freud and the Catholic academic and writer C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia), in September 1939, in London, when the world was on the brink of World War II and the “father” of psychoanalysis was on the verge of death, to discuss important and weighty issues such as the existence of God or the future of humanity. Anthony Hopkins plays Freud, Matthew Goode is Lewis and Freud’s last sessionDirected by Matt Brown, it is a conventional example of filmed theatre, one of those long-winded films in which the conversation is not even very deep and absorbing, but rather boring and superficial.


Two old friends, Michel (Thierry Lhermitte) and Denis (Patrick Timsit), both in their sixties and struggling financially, discover that they are, according to advertisers, “sexgenarians” and can make a lot of money advertising diapers for children, incontinence devices or moving stairs for the elderly. But Michel is more handsome than Denis and starts promoting more sophisticated and better-paid products, much to the chagrin of his friend. This comedy-drama, a “copain film” in the French style, is enjoyable to watch, as it lasts only 70 minutes and, above all, thanks to the way Lhermitte and Timsit fit together in comic terms.
