Operation Mincemeat (Larce) ** 1/2

The film by John Madden, best known for the Oscar-winning Shakespeare in Love and The Best Exotic Marigold, allows Britain to invade Europe in 1943 without endangering Sicily. The life of thousands of soldiers is based on the actual World War II disinformation operation.

Certainly informative and well-acted by Colin Firth and Matthew Macfady as two intelligence agents who came up with an interesting plan to trick the Nazis into thinking that the Allies would attack Greece instead of Italy, but the scenario. Is getting too complicated inside and outside of deception, rebels, built-up corpses with important documents, and multiple dual agents.

Including the interest, jealousy and suspicion of love between two men seeking to humanize their surgical expertise only removes the importance of the situation. Ian Fleming’s character, whether true or not, has been added to the elected officers in an interesting way, and although interesting, the film is similar in code to a World War II spy. It’s not comparable to the strength and power of a great “imitation game”. Cracking theme.

TOM MEDINA ** 1/2 (vo French)

Born in Algeria to Kabile’s father and Roma (or Gypsy) mother, French director Tony Gatlif has been making films over the past few decades about the Roma people, their passions, and their music. .. Like this latest film, he is a regular at the Cannes Film Festival and won the Director’s Award there in 2004 for his film EXILS starring Romain Duris.

He continues here with Tom Medina. Tom Medina is a mysterious, ferocious young misconduct (charismatic David Murgia) sent on probation to a ranch in the rugged swamps of southern France, full of horses and bulls. is. .. Medina’s impulsive personality is revealed in the first shot of the movie when she jumps into the bullring as a spectator and provokes the bullring as if she were a star bullfighter.

At the ranch, he tries to straighten him and approaches him with a patient and wise owner. But his impulsive personality continues to get in the way, as he begins to see the vision of a magical bull and often neglects his responsibilities. Meeting a fragile girl who is an environmental activist may bring him, but his inner devil and homeless emotions continue to plague him. Like that character, the film is ubiquitous, and in fact inspired by the beginnings of Gatrif himself when he landed in France, it has a real atmosphere and environment like a self-portrait.
