Film Review: She is Conann

SHE IS CONANN (France/Belgium/Luxembourg 2023) *
Directed by Bertrand Mandico

 

If one can remember the past Bertrand Mandico films AFTER BLUE and THE WILD BOYS, both sexual action fantasies, one can expect the same from his latest fantasy SHE IS CONNAN.  Be forewarned that his films are as weird as weird can be, made to look even weirder by his fondness of the use of saturated colour as well as black and white.

Film Review: Vermines (Infested)

INFESTED (VERMINES) (Frane 2023) *** 1/2

Directed by Sébastien Vanicek
