French cinema has more admissions than last year

Posted on Oct 14, 2020 at 3:55 p.m.Updated Oct 14, 2020, 4:07 PM

Really, life is simpler without competition. The situation of French cinema remains extremely worrying due to the health crisis. But the absence of American blockbusters in theaters means that the tricolor seventh art, thanks to films like “Les Jokes de Toto” or “Antoinette dans les Cévennes”, has made more entries since the deconfinement. A paradox, but also an achievement, as pessimism was in order.

According to the National Center of Cinema (CNC), French films made 13% more admissions in cumulated in July and August compared to the same months last year, when American films saw their attendance drop by 88 %, and those of other nationalities by 28%. According to Comscore, French films did better than the average of the previous five years between July 14 and the end of August 2020, peaking at 70% more than usual for the week of July 29.

Good “line-up”

And as Eric Marti, director of Comscore in France explains, since the success of “Tenet”, the American film by Christopher Nolan released on August 26 and which has accumulated 2.2 million admissions, has dwindled, “French films are getting back on their feet” and are starting to make more entries again than last year. With films like “Adieu les cons” by Albert Dupontel, and “Aline” by Valérie Lemercier, upcoming releases are promising.

Overall in September 2020, according to CNC figures, French films achieved a 56% market share of 5.5 million admissions, or 3.1 million, against 44% of 11.2 million. last year (a figure at the very top of the range for the last ten years, according to the CNC’s 2019 report), or 4.9 million.

In any case, in terms of market share, the French cinema accumulates exceptional performances, according to the calculations of Comscore, a little different from those of the CNC. Basically in July, August and September, French cinema went above 45-55% this year, against 20% to 40% on average over 2015-2019. American cinema has gone from 55% to 75% to 27% -35%. It should also be noted that the share of foreign films other than American, for which France is one of the rare countries where success is possible, has jumped by ten points this year.

Global releases for blockbusters

As the postponement of the release of the new James Bond until April 2021 shows, American studios aiming for global releases are extremely reluctant to release their film this year. Much to the anger of theater operators, the release on their platform becomes a default option, as shown by that of “Soul”, the promising latest Pixar, on Disney + at Christmas.

Suddenly, French films are not only the default choice but they are better exposed and for longer. There were more than 9 French films at 500 copies this summer, compared to 2 last year. “The career of ‘Antoinette in the Cévennes’ shows that giving time to word of mouth pays off”, notes a specialist. Arts and testing rooms benefit from the phenomenon a little more than multiplexes. Although in smaller proportions than in a country like the United Kingdom, where multiplexes have taken more drastic closure measures.

Pay attention to the location of the rooms

“This situation is favorable for distributors and producers of French films who benefit from a good sale of tickets and the reopening of the CNC support accounts., explains Serge Siritzky, from the blog But beware, the cinemas are in a catastrophic situation and many can only last until the end of the year with public support: if this is not renewed, many screens will close and French cinema will suffer. just as much as American cinema. “

It should be added that the air gap of confinement from March will probably not be compensated for and that for the overall cinema financing system, the plunge in cinema attendance (today around 50%) will inject less than revenue from ticket tax.

Discriminated and marginalized LGBT + people in Egypt, Poland and Japan

While France announced Wednesday, October 14 a plan to 150 measures to strengthen people’s rights LGBT + (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Trans, Queers), franceinfo looks back on the news of discrimination against these LGBT + people in Japan, Poland and Egypt.

Japan, the only G7 country without a legal framework for same-sex unions

In Japan, being LGBT + still condemns you today, with a few exceptions, to silence or marginality. Marriage for all here is probably not for tomorrow, as is feared by the recurring positions taken by members of the omnipotent Liberal Democratic Party in power. An elected official, Mio Sugita, regularly hits the headlines with her homophobic remarks and a mayor of a district in Tokyo recently had to apologize for saying that “if the law came to protect gays and lesbians, [sa] constituency would not survive. “

Little by little, over the years and especially among young people, acceptance and understanding progress. Large companies are working to eliminate discrimination when there is a very strong reluctance to come out in the workplace. Municipalities issue certificates of cohabitation, which make it easier for homosexual couples to rent an apartment or to carry out joint proceedings. Information desks or advice centers are opening in large cities, as recently in Tokyo, and the government is also taking some initiatives in the right direction.

Addressing the LGBT + subject is less taboo as the success of the film shows Midnight Swan, on a transgender, which attracts a young audience even if it is also debated. But beware of the showcase effect. If a few homosexual or transgender people have been present on television for a long time, they are unfortunately often pretext stars that mask a very different social reality.

In Poland, a new openly homophobic Minister of Education

The new Minister of Education, Przemyslaw Czarnek, was ttested positive for Covid-19 last week, and could not be sworn in, but that hasn’t stopped several protests across the country. Students also came to school dressed in black as a sign of mourning. Because Przemyslaw Czarnek, is known in Poland for his attacks against the LGBT + community. This member of the ultraconservative Law and Justice party, for example, declared that LGBT + people were not equal to others.

Anti LGBT + rhetoric is frequent in Poland, as we saw in particular during the presidential election campaign. The head of state Andrzej Duda had spoken of an ideology more dangerous than communism. A climate which has led to numerous protests in the streets of Poland.

Poland is often called to order by European declarations. In early August 2020, the European Union refused to provide funding to six Polish cities that had declared themselves “free” from “LGBT ideology”. But that does not seem to move the Polish government. The Minister of Justice had also qualified this decision as illegal. A government that does not hesitate – moreover – to threaten the EU not to vote for its recovery plan, if the payment of funds is conditioned on respect for the rule of law.

Egypt refuses to recognize the very existence of LGBT + people

In a report published two weeks ago, the NGO Human Rights Watch reports arbitrary arrests and torture of LGBT + people in Egyptian prisons. The testimonies gathered in this report are chilling. In police stations and in prisons, LGBT + detainees are humiliated, threatened, beaten, placed in solitary confinement for days. They are, in the majority of cases, sexually harassed and raped. Ahmed Alaa was jailed for three months. He now lives in exile in Canada: “An officer sexually harassed me. And, along with other officers, they told the inmates that I was the gay in segregation. As a result, I started receiving rape threats. “

Thehomosexuality is not, however, criminalized in Egypt. To carry out these sentences, the Egyptian courts use the very vague concept of “incitement to debauchery”. The sentences sometimes go up to several years of detention. Police are now creating fake accounts on dating apps to trick LGBT + people.

Technique used in particular since the last wave of large-scale arrests: in September 2017, rainbow flags were waved in public during a concert in Cairo. Seventy-five people will be arrested in the following months. Among them, the activist Sarah Hegazy. In exile in Canada, the young woman committed suicide four months ago. A life shattered by prison and torture. Symbol of the trauma of the victims targeted by the systematic repression exercised by the regime of President Al Sisi.

Honda Forza 750, un savoureux cocktail

NOUVEAUTÉ – La troisième version du Forza emprunte sa technologie et ses codes autant à l’univers du maxi-scooter qu’à celui de la moto.


Troisième membre de la famille des scooters GT Forza de Honda, après le 125 et 350, le Forza 750 ambitionne de mener la vie dure au Yamaha TMax et de devenir la référence du marché des maxi-scooters en termes de performances, de qualités et de praticité. Pour y arriver, le constructeur japonais n’a rien négligé. A commencer par son design élégant qui emprunte ses codes à la famille Forza mais aussi à l’Integra et au X-ADV. D’ailleurs, le Forza 750 s’affirme comme un véritable dérivé de ces machines hybrides. Le carénage intègre les rétroviseurs et les clignotants avant. C’est un plus: la hauteur de selle de 790 mm permet de poser les pieds à terre à l’arrêt. En adoptant une roue arrière de 15 pouces, au lieu de 17 pouces, Honda réussit à dégager un espace de rangements de 22 litres sous la selle afin d’y loger un casque intégral. C’est moins pratique: l’endroit a été retenu pour accueillir la prise USB plutôt que la boîte à gants au tablier. L’instrumentation TFT à écran 5 pouces intègre la commande vocale, ce qui suppose la présence d’un kit audio intégré au casque et connecté en Bluetooth au smartphone. Autre raffinement: la reconnaissance du véhicule, le verrouillage de la direction, l’ouverture de la selle et de la trappe à essence sont commandés par la clé électronique Smart key.

Le scooter Honda Forza 750 équipé de la gamme d’accessoires. Honda

Pour propulser ce nouveau maxi scooter GT, Honda s’appuie sur l’éprouvé bicylindre en ligne 745 cc à huit soupapes. Répondant à la norme Euro 5, il affiche une puissance en légère progression à 58,6 ch (43,1 kW) et un couple de 69 Nm. Développée pour les détenteurs du permis A2, la version dégonflée à 35 kW sera proposée sur le Forza 750. C’est l’une des spécificités de ce scooter, Honda a conservé la transmission à double embrayage DCT offrant le choix entre les modes automatique ou manuel et quatre niveaux de lois de passage, de confort à sport. Quant à la partie cycle, rien que du sérieux. Elle repose sur un cadre tubulaire en acier de type Diamant, une suspension arrière Pro-Link et un bras oscillant en aluminium. Un freinage ABS et un système de gestion de couple complètent le dispositif. L’ensemble pèse 235 kilos.


Le Honda Forza 750 sera commercialisé au cours du mois de décembre 2020 à un tarif légèrement inférieur à celui du TMax facturé 11 999 €.

Vì sao miền Trung mưa lũ kéo dài?

Không khí lạnh kết hợp với dải hội tụ nhiệt đới khiến lượng mưa 10 ngày ở Thừa Thiên Huế gấp 2-5 lần, Quảng Trị gấp 6 lần trung bình nhiều năm.

Từ ngày 6 đến 13/10, các tỉnh từ Hà Tĩnh đến Quảng Ngãi xuất hiện mưa lớn. Tại Hà Tĩnh, mưa 150-400 mm; Quảng Bình 400-500 mm, Quảng Trị 800-1.500 mm; Thừa Thiên Huế 1.300-2.000 mm; riêng A Lưới 2.235 mm; Đà Nẵng 1.100 mm, Quảng Nam 900-1.200 mm, Quảng Ngãi 600-800 mm.

Cơ quan khí tượng ghi nhận, lượng mưa 10 ngày đầu tháng 10 tại Thừa Thiên Huế cao hơn so với trung bình nhiều năm từ 2 đến 4 lần, A Lưới (Thừa Thiên Huế) là 5 lần, Khe Sanh (Quảng Trị) 6 lần.

Mưa to liên tục khiến lũ các sông vượt báo động 3, 135.000 hộ dân bị ngập 0,3-3 m, gần 46.000 người phải sơ tán. 36 người chết (30 người do bị lũ cuốn; 3 thuyền viên trên biển; 3 người bị điện giật do dọn dẹp sau lũ, chưa tính nạn nhân sạt lở thủy điện Rào Trăng 3); 12 người mất tích.

Ông Nguyễn Văn Hưởng, Trưởng phòng Dự báo khí hậu, Trung tâm dự báo khí tượng thủy văn quốc gia, chỉ ra bốn nguyên nhân khiến miền Trung mưa to. Đầu tiên là hoạt động của dải hội tụ nhiệt đới (hội tụ của hai đới gió Đông Bắc và Tây Nam) nối từ vịnh Bengal, vắt qua miền Trung Việt Nam và tới Philippines.

Khu vực tồn tại dải hội tụ nhiệt đới thường xuyên duy trì mây đối lưu phát triển, gây mưa giông. Khi có thêm thành phần gió Đông hoạt động mạnh, lượng ẩm tích tụ càng lớn, đồng nghĩa mây đối lưu càng phát triển và mưa giông sẽ nhiều hơn, cường độ lớn, thời gian kéo dài.

Nguyên nhân thứ hai là bão và áp thấp nhiệt đới. Ông Hưởng giải thích dải hội tụ nhiệt đới là chuỗi xoáy thuận nhiệt đới, khi gặp điều kiện thuận lợi như hội tụ gió mạnh, qua vùng nước biển ấm sẽ phát triển thành áp thấp nhiệt đới, sau là bão.

Khoảng 60-70% áp thấp nhiệt đới hình thành trên dải hội tụ nhiệt đới. Thực tế từ ngày 6/10 đến nay, một áp thấp nhiệt đới và hai cơn bão (Linfa và Nangka) đi qua miền Trung đều là do dải hội tụ nhiệt đới.

“Hoạt động của bão và áp thấp nhiệt đới đơn thuần đã gây mưa rất lớn. Ví dụ bão Linfa gây mưa phổ biến 500-700 mm, có nơi trên 700 mm, những nơi mưa ít như Nam Hà Tĩnh hay Bắc Tây Nguyên cũng 200-300 mm”, ông Hưởng nói.

Nguyên nhân thứ ba là không khí lạnh từ phương Bắc tràn xuống và liên tục được bổ sung, cùng với gió Đông đưa ẩm vào tạo thành khối ẩm lớn từ mặt đất lên tới 5.000 m và đều tập trung ở miền Trung. Tổ hợp này đã khiến mưa miền Trung tăng cao, gây lũ lụt kéo dài.

“Không khí lạnh với đới gió Đông Bắc thổi xuống miền Trung, gặp địa hình chắn gió là dãy Trường Sơn, bao nhiêu ẩm của nó sẽ bị chặn lại, tạo ra dòng thăng cưỡng bức mạnh và hệ quả sẽ là mưa to”, ông Hưởng nói về nguyên nhân thứ tư.

Nguyên nhân sâu xa của các hiện tượng trên, theo cơ quan khí tượng là tác động của La Nina xuất hiện từ tháng 7 và dự báo kéo dài đến đầu năm 2021. Trong những năm có La Nina, số cơn bão trên Biển Đông và ảnh hưởng đến Việt Nam nhiều hơn trung bình nhiều năm, mùa mưa bão cũng kết thúc muộn.

Trung tâm dự báo khí tượng thủy văn quốc gia nhận định, sáng 15/10 một cơn áp thấp nhiệt đới sẽ vào Biển Đông, sau đó gây ra đợt mưa to ở miền Trung. “Sau áp thấp nhiệt đới này, dự báo từ nay đến sau ngày 20/10, các tỉnh từ Hà Tĩnh trở vào đến Bình Định, Phú Yên sẽ thường xuyên mưa to đến rất to”, ông Hưởng nói.

Từ nay cho tới hết năm 2020, còn khoảng 4-6 cơn bão và áp thấp nhiệt đới ở Biển Đông, trong đó 2-4 cơn ảnh hưởng trực tiếp đến đất liền, tập trung ở Trung và Nam Bộ. Các địa phương cần đề phòng mưa lớn dồn dập và kéo dài trong nửa cuối tháng 10 và tháng 11/2020, đặc biệt là Trung và Nam Trung Bộ.

Ngoài ra, trong những tháng mùa khô, Tây Nguyên và Nam Bộ nhiều khả năng xuất hiện các đợt mưa trái mùa. Những đợt rét đậm, rét hại ở phía Bắc có thể kéo dài 5-7 ngày và dài hơn ở các tỉnh vùng núi.

DIRECT. First evening under curfew for Ile-de-France and eight major cities

What there is to know

Some 20 million inhabitants of Ile-de-France and eight large cities on maximum alert are preparing to live, Saturday, October 17, their first evening under curfew, a major measure decided by the government to stem the epidemic of Covid-19 in strong rebound.

Since midnight Saturday, the inhabitants of Ile-de-France and the metropolitan areas of Lyon, Lille, Toulouse, Montpellier, Saint-Etienne, Aix-Marseille, Rouen and Grenoble have the obligation to stay at home between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. , except exceptions.

The government defends curfews as the only measure to prevent a re-containment, at a time when the indicators in France are deteriorating, and when the World Health Organization (WHO) judges the situation “very worrying” in the rest of Europe.

The derogatory certificate is now online. The Interior Ministry has published the certificate required to waive the curfew, as well as the supporting document filled in by the employer for business trips. Medical emergencies, visiting a loved one, walking animals or even traveling long distances are accepted reasons, not cultural activities. On the way or at the exit of stations and airports, plane and train tickets will prevail.

Authorized holiday departures. However, the government has not banned travel within the country as the All Saints holidays begin. Some territories, however, wanted to anticipate an influx of tourists, such as the seaside resort of Touquet-Paris-Plage, which will in turn establish a curfew. In Loire-Atlantique and Vendée, the prefectures have taken measures to expand the obligation to wear the mask.

The increase in intensive care admissions continues. France has recorded 122 deaths linked to Covid-19 over the last 24 hours, a figure which tends to climb, as well as that of admissions in intensive care, according to official figures published Friday evening. New admissions to hospital intensive care units continue their marked increase: 171 patients on Monday, 226 Tuesday, 193 Wednesday, 219 Thursday and 212 Friday.


Le choix de Gal Gadot pour incarner Cléopâtre sous le feu de vives critiques

Le choix fait polémique. Après avoir interprété Wonder Woman, l’actrice israélienne Gal Gadot incarnera prochainement Cléopâtre. Sous le feu de vives critiques depuis sa nomination, plusieurs internautes dénoncent un « white-washing », estimant que l’actrice n’est pas représentative de Cléopâtre, la majorité des Egyptiens de l’époque étant noirs.

Au-delà, il semblerait que ce soit ses prises de positions publiques en faveur de l’armée israélienne dans les événements survenus sur la bande de Gaza qui placent l’actrice au cœur d’une seconde polémique.

Première polémique en 2014

L’actrice était déjà à l’origine d’une polémique lors de la sortie du film Wonder Woman. Promue en super-héroïne de l’univers Disney Comic, l’actrice avait publié un statut Facebook affichant sa position politique au moment de la « troisième guerre à Gaza », où le nombre de civils palestiniens tués atteignait un niveau sans précédent depuis la guerre des Six jours de juin 1967.

« J’envoie mon amour et mes prières à mes citoyens israéliens. Particulièrement à tous les garçons et les filles qui risquent leurs vies pour protéger mon pays contre les actes terrifiants du Hamas, qui se cachent comme des lâches derrière des femmes et des enfants… Nous surmonterons tout ça ! Shabbat Shalom ! » avait-elle écrit rajoutant #weareright (« nous avons raison ») #freegazafromhamas (« libérez Gaza du Hamas ») et #Loveidf (« j’aime IDF »).

Sa nomination avait été fortement contestée dans plusieurs pays arabes, jusqu’à une censure du film au Liban. Certains fans de comics lui reprochaient également ses deux ans de service militaire entre ses 18 et 20 ans au sein des forces armées israéliennes ainsi que ses prises de position anti-Hamas en 2014.

Son incarnation en Cléopâtre ravive les critiques

Son incarnation en Cléopâtre crée donc à nouveau la polémique et ravive les critiques. Plusieurs internautes affirment que le choix de l’actrice est « juste un autre accident dans l’histoire du white washing et de l’héritage colonial ».

« N’oublions pas que Gal Gadot a exprimé à plusieurs reprises son soutien à Tsahal qui a le sang de milliers de Palestiniens innocents sur les mains » a exprimé l’un des internautes à l’origine du hashtag #RecognisePalestineNow.

« Torrent de messages haineux »

D’autres internautes ont au contraire affiché leur soutien à l’actrice en affirmant que « Cléopâtre VII était macédonienne de culture grecque et non arabe » avant d’ajouter que « les rôles ne devraient de toute façon pas dépendre du pays sur le passeport ».

De leur côté, l’Union des Etudiants Juifs de France a déploré « un torrent de messages haineux simplement parce que (l’actrice) est juive et israélienne ».


Laurent Habib resigns from the presidency of the AACC

Posted on Oct 14, 2020 at 5:45 p.m.Updated Oct 14, 2020, 7:02 PM

This is a first for the advertising industry and undoubtedly a new chapter in its history. Following an extraordinary board of directors held on Tuesday evening, Laurent Habib, president of the Association of Communication Consulting Agencies (AACC) since 2017, re-elected in 2019, resigned against a background of accusations of sexual harassment, as revealed Wednesday the magazine “Strategies”.

Questioned since Saturday in several testimonies on the Instagram account #Balance Ton Agency, reporting testimonies of harassment, the leader explains his gesture : “I preferred to leave to preserve my dignity and preserve my freedom of speech. I’ve been criticized for things that are true, even though they are dated and heavy joke. I ask forgiveness of the women whom I could embarrass or hurt. But we are obviously in situations that do not relate to the legal but to morality and disapproval.

In a statement, the board of directors of the AACC “Takes note and understands this personal decision guided by the concern that Laurent Habib has today to protect his relatives, his collaborators and the AACC. “

The departure of the president of the sector union is seen as a fracture, even appearing to open a new chapter in the history of advertising. Already, in 2018, the #Metoo of the advertisement had opened a first breach, without real concrete progress. This is the first time that a leader of this caliber has resigned for acts of harassment.

After starting his career at RSCG Public, Laurent Habib, close for a while to DSK like many politicians, spent twenty-two years in the Havas group. There, he managed the corporate communication agency Euro RSCG C & 0 (now Havas Paris), and took on the role of CEO of Havas France. In 2012, strategy differences with Vincent Bolloré, the group’s current president, prompted him to create his own Babel agency, focused on advertising creation, events and influence.

Anonymous activism

But the departure of Laurent Habib is -also- a fracture because it seems to give a kind of sesame to “A new form of anonymous activism carried out on social networks”, according to the terms of “Strategies”, against sexual harassment in an agency. And it is clear that this activism is effective. Created on September 25, the #Balancetonagency Instagram account wasted no time in overflowing with testimonies reporting both sexist jokes and inappropriate touching.

“Behind #Balancetonagency” hides a vigilante or an anonymous vigilante who names men who are sexually or morally violent ”, specifies Christelle Delarue, who led the #Metoo for advertising two years ago, with her movement “Les Lionnes”. “We support his fight but we are not behind the process. “

Laurent Habib is the second manager, after that of the Braaxe agency, to be singled out by the #Balancetonagency account and to choose to withdraw, while other names of agencies and leaders are starting to circulate.

Faced with this surge, Christelle Delarue regrets that #Balancetonagency ”points out the problems but does not do all the work of transformation, explanation of the complainant’s journey and the necessary moral redress. On the other hand, the violence of #Balancetonagency constitutes an important step in the liberation of the industry. Since 2018, the testimonies have continued to add up and we have two hundred people from fifty agencies who could file a complaint today. “

It is now up to the AACC to appoint another leader, while the burning issues – ecology and the threat of more restrictive legislation on polluting products and industries, the financial impact of the second wave of Covid on agencies … – are piling up at the offices at 40 boulevard Malesherbes.
