    Yasmina Khadra's story is anything but ordinary-it is an epic tale. This best-selling author, whose early novels are set during the Algerian civil war in the 1990s, is not, as one would imagine, a woman.

    His real name is Mohammed Moulessehoul, a former Algerian army officer who fought against the rise of Islamist extremism that plunged his country into a bloodbath. He spent his sleepless nights writing novels that were published under a pseudonym composed of his wife's first two names. Structured as a road movie between Algeria and France, this documentary takes us on a journey through the work of Yasmina Khadra, the author's complex personality and his life, which is inextricably tied to the history of Algeria since its independence.

    A portrait of Ernest Hemingway in love makes us delve into the intimacy of a man infinitely more complex than the image he liked to give. Discovering the author's relationship with each of his four wives not only enables us to re-read his work with a different perspective, but it is also an original approach to tell the story of his life.

    Each of them corresponds to a time and a place during the author's life, allowing us to move from the bohemian Paris of the 1920s to the Florida of the 1930s, then back to Europe during World War II before discovering the Cuba of the 1950s; our story ends in Idaho, America, where Ernest Hemingway chose to kill himself at the age of 61.

    A provincial woman who became an icon of the Belle Epoque, she became a celebrated writer, a pioneer of autofiction turning herself into a devilishly romantic character, inseparable from her work. Our film immerses the viewer in the novel of her life.

    By turns novelist, mime, dancer, nude, critic, screenwriter, publicist, and even shopkeeper, Colette lived life to the full, continually reinventing herself through a series of scandals and metamorphoses. Retracing Colette’s career also means sketching a portrait of the early 20th century. With her, in the Paris of the Belle Epoque, we enter the intellectual and high-society worlds, meeting many of the colorful figures of the period as we move through the music-hall scene.

    “The Portrait of Dorian Gray” continues to find new readers and to inspire artists and creators the world over more than a century after its publication because Oscar Wilde gave his novel all the ingredients of a universal masterpiece. 

    Driven by a rock ’n’ roll soundtrack and a directorial approach blending archives, live-action footage and animation, this documentary allows the viewer to experience the dramatic power of this fantasy tale that probes the torments of narcissism, and  explores the book’s premonitory dimension, which prefigures both the author’s tragic fate and contemporary society’s obsession with image.

    A real-life or fictitious hero, Robin Hood is first and foremost a cultural reference. Everyone can identify with this character’s values and commitment, and it has been so for some 800 years.
    A review of this legendary figure’s impact.

    He is a hero celebrated on all continents across all media; an icon of popular culture, a model of virtue and commitment for all generations. But the documentaries about him are scarce. In these uncertain times, it is high time to revisit this star of social justice.
    Robin never out of fashion: oppressors and oppressed are always in the news. This film tells the fascinating saga of a popular and revolutionary icon present throughout all media; from children’s songs to literature, movies, TV, comics and, more recently, video games. The champion of the poor appeals to all generations, cultures and regions of the world.

    Every day, through his murmuring voice and handwriting, the survivors, the children of Ukraine, the peasants of Yiddishland come alive in the tiny office of a Jerusalem apartment. Aharon Appelfeld, lonely, wants to fight this battle to the last breath.

    But this solitude is disturbed by the encounter with a young woman. Her name is Valerie Zenatti and she is his translator in French. With her, life breathes into the apartment. For her, he will give shape to a literary and humanist inheritance, and will give it to her.

    “Who killed Roger Ackroyd” is a deconstruction of one of the most famous Agatha Christie’s novel as well as an original portrait of a cult writer, whose life still retains a part of mystery today. 

    The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is one Agatha Christie's most famous novels. Its fame rests on a narrative device, profoundly original in its day (1926): murderer and narrator are one and the same. The author was thoroughly pilloried by critics at the time for this. They considered her invention an unfair trick on readers, that broke the rules of detective fiction.
     
    Eighty years later, Pierre Bayard, a professor of literature and psychoanalyst, offers a fascinating deconstruction of the novel. Quite apart from the technical aspects of his analysis, Bayard reaches an absolutely convincing, yet astounding conclusion: Agatha Christie is guilty of a miscarriage of justice. The murderer cannot be Dr Sheppard, as Hercule Poirot so blithely asserts.
