What’s new this week on the SVOD platform? Films, series, documentaries … Télé-Loisirs tells you everything.
This week, the seventh art is in the spotlight on Netflix. The platform indeed hosts a hell of a lot of new feature films, between original productions (Dynasty Warriors, Prime Time…) and new prestigious acquisitions. Honor to the great filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino in particular with no less than two of his masterpieces, La Grande Bellezza and Youth, which ignited the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, and our cinephile hearts! Wink to the Croisette always with the upsetting 120 beats per minute, film at the six César and Grand Prix at Cannes which recounts Act Up’s fight against the AIDS epidemic in the early 90s. Also not to be missed: Cairo confidential, a drama inspired by a terrible news item, or the integrals of great successful sagas, like the Hobbit or the one who revealed to the general public a certain Robert Pattinson, Twilight. Here are all the news on Netflix from June 25 to July 1.
