Leah Mycenae’s new film – Deadline

Director Leah Macy’s skillfully made a weird, magical movie in her director’s Fortnight debut film Five devils (Les Cinq Diables), which I received a five minute standing ovation at the screening I attended. Misias embraces concepts such as identity, sexuality, and mysticism and makes films in a complex genre that is part-time travel, part-time drama, and all-hearted.

Vicky (Sally Drum) is a mixed-race child who grew up in a small town in France, and has a special gift: she can reproduce any scent from anywhere. She keeps bottled scents for reference. Her sense of smell is so sharp that she can tell which animal has licked a pine cone and can detect the smell of her mother Joan (Adele Exarpolos) even when she is 20 feet away and covered in pine.

Joan is a swimming instructor and lifeguard who has a loveless marriage to Jimmy (Mustafa Mbengu). When her sister Julia (Swala Imati) comes to visit, the home environment becomes hostile. One day Vicky gets the idea to recreate Julie’s scent, and when she does, she moves into the past and sees her mother’s vision before marriage. The longer Julie stays at home, the more Vicky begins to discover the origins of her family. The answers would be shocking enough for Vicky to question her existence and her mother’s love.

Family privacy isn’t hard to grasp, but the way the plot unfolds around it is truly stunning. Kids notice everything, so there’s no point in hiding anything. At first, Vicky has a bad reason to get rid of Julie – it is suspected that she came to break up the family. But Vicky’s intense curiosity conveys a sense of hope among her loved ones. This train of thought has been developed by the photographer Paul Guilhaum Those who soak the film in a cool blue filter, but as things go on the colors become more vibrant and people finally start to give up the pretense.

Exarchopoulos gives the most emotionally weak performance of her career lying to herself as a caring mother. Since then she has matured as an actress Blue is a warm color, Very comfortable in his body, and confident in his ability to provide what is needed for the script. The show has seemed a bit unfocused in recent episodes, however; He effortlessly watches adults and their messy lives with his kaleidoscope glasses.

Five devils Its not without problems. There are a lot of movies about black protagonists, but black people don’t manage any of them. Directors are trying to be more diverse, which is commendable, but there’s still a lot of work to be done to get the right presentation on screen. Julia and Jimmy aren’t given too much agency. They exist as a platform for young people who use them to improve themselves. They can’t say much about the situation. They have to adapt to what the young man is feeling.

And hair. See, black hairstylists need to be consulted and hired to give black characters a decent-looking hairstyle. The random hair and bad wig set hit black actresses, and Five devils Fall into this trap. Films have to start investing in the complete aesthetics of blackness and that means finding people who can bring out the most truth in a character.

In conclusion, the choices we make lead to the way we meet people in and out of our lives. But how can you expect to live a happy life if you are not honest with yourself about who you really are? Five devils Try to reveal the truth while covering topics that lead to the creation of a sincere, magical realistic movie with a message that what we want will come to us only when we are ready and not before.
