Philippe Claudel's Tous les soleils has a good concept of comedy: the colash of two generations embodied by a single father and his teenager daughter. Unfortunately, the film loses some momentum as we get into its story's second half.

Chinese director Tsui Hark finally got back in good shape. His latest film Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame is by no definition Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Nevertheless, his film provides a somehow solid and entertaining story.

Yann Samuell's L'âge de raison is just what you'd expect from a summer film. Although it's not worthy of an award, L'âge de raison is fun to watch thanks to its lead actress Sophie Marceau (The World Is Not Enough).

In Hollywood, for every Twilight films, there are at least two films which tackle touchy issues. While Jonathan Demme's Philadelphia is a little bit cheesy at times, the film is still relevant today as it was when it came out.
|Starring:||Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington|
After De père en flic, here's another attempt by over-rated director Émile Gaudreault to hit Quebec's box-office with what should look like a summer comedy. As a result, we get a rather average film.
|Screenplay:||Émile Gaudreault and Benoît Pelletier|
|Starring:||Benoît Brière, Louis-José Houde and Michel Côté|
