'A Stormy Summer Night' ('Orage'): Film Review - Hollywood Reporter

debuting director Fabrice Camoin tries to update the material to contemporary times, but winds up with an uneven mélange of psychological drama and stylistic thriller in A Stormy Summer Night ( Orage ). Starring comic actress Marina Fois , cast... Obliquely cutting between two storylines that will eventually fuse together, the film follows the travails of alcoholic Parisian bourgeoise , Maria (Fois), whose road trip to Spain with her crotchety husband ( Louis-Do de Lencquesaing ) and friend... While wandering the grounds in a drunken stupor, Maria crosses paths with Nabil (Bouajila), a French North African fleeing from the cops after shooting his wife and her lover in what was clearly a crime of passion. During the joy(less) ride, Camoin never really delves into either character’s psyche, and we’re constantly left pondering who these people are: If Nabil at least has an excuse for his act Maria comes across as a blithering, binge-drinking mess,... Editing by Muriel Breton ( Hideaway ) faithfully mimics the enigmatic style of Duras’ writing, but can sometimes seem too abstruse, as if scenes were left on the cutting room floor for other reasons. Fully committed performances by Fois ( Polisse ) and Bouajila ( Outside the Law ) cannot overcome an underlying sense of dramatic inertia, leaving us with two people who travel to what seems like the end of the earth, but never really wind up.

  • Screening Integration

    U of Nebraska Press. 2012. ISBN: 9780803238381,080323838X. 282 pages.

    North African immigrants, once confined to France’s social and cultural margins, have become a strong presence in France’s national life. Similarly, descendants of immigrants from Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia have gained mainstream recognition as filmmakers and as the subject of films. The first collective volume on this topic, Screening Integration offers a sustained critical analysis of this cinema. In particular, contributors evaluate how Maghrebi films have come to participate in, promote, and, at the same time, critique France’s integration. In the process, these essays reflect on the conditions that allowed for the burgeoning of this cinema in the first place, as well as on the social changes the films delineate. Screening Integration brings together established scholars in the fields of postcolonial, Francophone, and film studies to address the latest developments in this cinematic production. These authors explore the emergence of various genres that recast the sometimes fossilized idea of ethnic difference. Screening Integration provides a much-needed reference for those interested in comprehending the complex shifts in twenty-first-century French cinema and in the multicultural social formations that have become an integral part of contemporary France in the new millennium.
