Planetarium Review

  • Post author:

I was really excited about the prospect of Natalie working on a French film, particularly one directed by Rebecca Zlotowski whose Grand Central is fantastic. Unfortunately, this is one of my least favourite Natalie films. The story has a strong connection to the dead, but its the film that is D.O.A. It certainly looks handsome, and the performances (particularly Natalie and Emmanual Salinger) are solid at the very least.

Planetarium opens in France today. Unfortunately, Rebecca Zlotowski’s latest film, starring Natalie and Lily Rose Depp, hasn´t had a critical reception as good as Jackie, but this movie supposes the opportunity to see our favorite actress in a mysterious and interesting role. To celebrate the release, here we have an interview (in French) of the director in Allocine, and a few instagram photos shared by some people of the crew (including the director herself).

Planetarium Tiff Review

Here’s another TIFF review! Critics have been a bit hard on this French-Belgium production, and after viewing the film, I can unfortunately see why.

Rebecca Zlotowski is known for pushing boundaries, especially with 2013’s Grand Central. At 36, she has a future ahead of her. With the premise of Planetarium being leaked earlier this year, that film seemed like her future. Two sisters who are mediums being channeled by an early film maker? Sign us up! However, it isn’t once you watch the film that reality sets in. If anything, the first half an hour or so is actually spectacular and even magical. It is, instead, after this segment of the film that you find out how it really is. Planetarium has imaginative concepts, but you would have to lunge yourself to reach where the potential sits from where the film takes you. Planetarium had such promise, but it gets lost amidst its own ambitions.
