Eux et moi
SC 9.4/10 

Year: 2001
Country: France
Section: documentary
Tags: boy, girl
Description: For the last few years an ethnographer has regularly gone to a small New Guinea village. He speaks the languages of these people who walk around naked with bows and arrows, who dispute over forest gardens with axes, and who have a short fuse like our own French peasants. He knows them well, but a certain discomfort subsists between them. They seem to be interested only in his toothbrush, they too often take him for a cash machine.
He finally comes to realise, while filming the monetary dealings and negotiations he has with them, that all of this, what he didn't want to see and was ashamed of, is in fact what bound them together. Only after a detour through impurity and self-interest could they find common ground.
We discover people who are no more savage than our next door neighbours. We end up forgetting that they live so far away. We watch with bemused smiles as the ethnographer and these people, who didn't boo him off the stage, get their feet wet in a friendship made the hard way.

Jane Birkin et nous
SC 1.4/10 

Year: 2022
Country: France
Section: documentary
Tags: girl
Description: Jane Birkin has forged a unique bond with France and the French. Between the little Englishwoman and her adopted country, love at first sight was immediate and has lasted for more than 50 years. This documentary returns, through the prism of this unique bond, to the life and career of an artist apart in the French musical and cinematographic landscape. The intimate portrait of a freedom-loving woman. Singer, actress, fashion icon, muse: Jane has taken on all the roles. From Gainsbourg to Daho, from the auteur cinema of Jacques Doillon or Agnès Varda, to the popular comedies of Audiard and Zidi via the Chéreau theatre, she knew how to become a unique artist, celebrated and adored by the French. Jane Birkin agreed to open her personal photo albums and boxes full of Super 8 home movies.
