Highlights - 05/01/2017

 

It was 2016: Thank You Sandra Hüller, Isabelle Huppert and Sônia Braga!

 

Our annual tops are an opportunity, as every year, to take a retrospective look at a year of cinema in film theaters. This one was rich with strong female characters. After MUSTANG in 2015, it is the second year that a film directed by a woman, TONI ERDMANN, dominates our ranking, and by far, followed by ELLE, AQUARIUS and PATERSON. It is also a year marked by a strong Asian presence (3 films in our Top 10) and a near absence of American cinema among our favorite films... especially since PATERSON is almost a Japanese film (isn’t it ?).

Take a look at our individual tops!

Top 10: 

1 – TONI ERDMANN - Maren Ade

2 – ELLE - Paul Verhoeven

3 – AQUARIUS - Kleber Mendonça Filho

4 – PATERSON - Jim Jarmusch

5 – JULIETA - Pedro Almodóvar

6 – TRAIN TO BUSAN (DERNIER TRAIN POUR BUSAN) - Sang-Ho Yeon

7 – THE ASSASSIN - Hou Hsiao-Hsien

8 – RESTER VERTICAL (STAYING VERTICAL) - Alain Guiraudie

& THE HANDMAIDEN (MADEMOISELLE) - Park Chan-Wook

9 – LIKE CRAZY (LA PAZZA GIOIA) - Paolo Virzì

10 – ROOM – Lenny Abrahamson
