Thomas Cayley’s Le Règne Animal, released on Wednesday, October 4, outlines the contours of a society in which humans are transformed into animals. Fantastic, brave and interesting concert.
Take the full list of confident people (Romain Duris) who vomit junk food and don’t want to find a balance between René Char quotes to justify their son’s style: “He who comes into the world neither for change, nor for merit, nor for kindness, nor for patience,” the man convinced that he should know the woman from a sinister secret that is separate from her. Look at the little child (Paul Kircher) who resists curiosity and voluntarism. Prenet is finally the desired gendarme (Adèle Exarchopoulos), sentenced to preparing bars for military personnel.
Fable Ecologique Intimate
Mix everything with my creations, here is my beast terrorizing the population, here is a pile of land in super marches, here is a feathered biped breaking out of an ambulance, and you have an idea of the new Thomas Keighley film, Le Reign animal, here he was presented at the last Cannes Film Festival, and he arrived here on Wednesday, October 4. A stunning combination of science fiction film and environmental fairy tale, and incredibly intimate.
Après Les Combatants In 2014, Thomas Keighley’s second film plunges us into a society that claims everything seems normal as the remaining human beings are part of an obscure disease and are being transformed into more animals. François, the father and Emile, the children who came to the south, will accompany Lana, the woman of one and the mother of the other, touched by the disease and the restrictions of her stay in a special center.
This place donner à ces mi-humains mi-animaux?
The script, written by Pauline Munier, is inspired by the changes in our lives during the pandemic. “We start writing books in 2019, story by Thomas Cayley. A few weeks later, the coronavirus has disappeared and our territories are limited. Les événements autour de nous ont validé set instinct: on s’adapte très vite. During these weeks you will find it normal to see a troupe of sangliers in deserted urban centers and repeat themselves.”
Comment on the roommate of these new indomitable creatures? Are there no people in these places who are also dangerous to join? Le Reign animal Resonate with the current ecological urgency and question our interactions with the rest of living things. An ambitious film requires precise and textured makeup and a mixture of special effects sufficient for the script to retain its strength and authenticity.
Le Reign animal also a great look at the actors and the performance of Paul Kircher, released in 2022 in the film Le Licen Christophe Honore. A body with incredible power and the body of a teenager will not lose it for a long time.
Thomas Cayley’s film is brought to you through intense scenes set in the morning, in the heart of the forest, where the father and the films about Lana’s search are based on a song by Pierre Bachelet. She’s an ayler You can see the shining light of this man’s hunt, Saint-Jean’s living room, among the corn fields. He is transported into this moment by Andrea Laszlo De Simone’s original music. And finally, a special mention: au chien Albert. It will make you want to discover The Dog of Palme at the latest Cannes Film Festival.
