Alice Rohrwacher's Wonders
For whom: those nostalgic for their last vacation in Italy, dolce vita style.
In the middle of the Italian countryside, a grumpy beekeeper raises his four daughters outside of consumer society. The eldest would like to participate in a TV contest around local products, hosted by Monica Bellucci full of self-mockery made up of the poor man's Venus. Alice Rohrwacher manages to film nature like no one else in this picturesque work, Grand Prix of the Cannes film festival in 2014.
The Wonders of Alice Rohrwacher, available on arte.tv from May 17 to 23
The Square by Ruben Östlund
For whom: art lovers with a good dose of self-mockery.
Swedish director Ruben Östlund has fun shooting contemporary art, its pompous lexical field and its unheard of obsession. Palme d'Or in 2017, The Square follows a curator ( Claes Bang , chic incarnate) in search of his stolen cell phone in a popular suburb between two installations of grotesque levitating works of art. As a bonus, we find Elizabeth Moss ( The Handmaid's Tale ) as a somewhat invasive journalist. A satire as funny as it is squeaky of a well-off society full of good feelings.

Happy End by Michael Haneke
For whom: those convinced of the class struggle.
Slow and delicate, Michael Haneke paints the portrait of a cold provincial bourgeoisie, indifferent and detached from all reality in a Calais ravaged by the tragedy of migrants, through a family living in his private mansion and pampered by conciliatory servants . A choral film carried by Isabelle Huppert , Mathieu Kassovitz and Jean-Louis Trintignant , presented in the official selection in 2017.

Paterson by Jim Jarmusch
For whom: the eternal romantics in need of sweetness.
Jim Jarmusch signs a romantic and poetic fable carried by the duo Golshifteh Farahani and Adam Driver , selected in Cannes in 2016. The story of a contemplative bus driver who writes poems on the small pleasures of his life, when his sweetheart finds his happiness in painting (doubtful) and making poems. Simply charming.

Asghar Farhadi's past
For whom: all those who have fallen into a drama-loving family.
Returning to Paris to regularize his divorce with Marie ( Bérénice Bejo ), Ahmad ( Ali Mossafa ) did not think of landing in a real nest of shit. Between her children in teenage crisis, her new boyfriend ( Tahar Rahim ) and her new stepson, the blended family is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. A touching family mural that won the Ecumenical Jury Prize in 2013.
