While we’ve got Jazz conquering the heart and soul of many through Pixar’s new film Soul, we followed the path showed by Blues with Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. This is our musical and cinematographic review for this month. This is our Minema.
Like literature, theatre and musical theatre have their classics. Recently, we had the opportunity to go and see Fiddler on the Roof at the Playhouse Theatre, London, so full of curiosity we had a look at the film too. SPOILER ALERT LEVEL 4/5
2007. Marion Cotillard doesn’t know it yet, but she’s about to mark international cinema with a major musical biopic. A success I had to mention here: La Vie en Rose, by Olivier Dahan. SPOILER ALERT LEVEL 5/5.
What happened, Miss Simone? This quote is from Maya Angelou. It is also a documentary that tries to explain to the lovers and to the neophytes who is Nina Simone, the legend but also the woman, the artist, the human being. So this is our Minema this month. LEVEL SPOILER ALERT 5/5
For this Minema, we open the borders of arts a little and get two birds with one stone with a sort of Live Report. First, the movie, inspired by a true story, Kinky Boots became a musical on Broadway in 2012. Since 2015, this show has been in London. After a careful look at everything, we need to talk about it. SPOILER ALERT 3/5.
