It is April 1974 and Julie Dujonc-Renens, young feminist journalist and the cunning Joseph-Marie Cauvin, leading reporter for the Swiss radio, have been sent to Portugal to investigate Switzerland’s aid to poor countries. Sparks fly during the bus trip with Bob, sound engineer approaching retirement. The projects financed by Switzerland prove to be calamitous and the workers’ revolution that suddenly breaks out doesn’t help, obliging our heroes to disregard first the radio’s management, and then their own codes of conduct.
April 1974. The Federal Councellor, annoyed by the anti-establishment tone of The French speaking Swiss radio channel, imposes "safer" subjects on Philippe de Roulet, the programs director.... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Graydon B (nl) wrote: Toy Story 3 is a brilliant, funny, engaging, emotional and tense sequel that is the only third film I know of that is as good as the other films. While I find it too dark in its atmosphere, its still one of the best endings to a series ever (sort of, thanks Toy Story 4). Highly recommend it.

Dann M (br) wrote: Mercury Rising is a stereotypical '90s action film that's fairly entertaining, but familiar. When a 9-year-old autistic boy accidentally cracks a top secret government encryption code a rogue section of the NSA attempts to eliminate him. The story's pretty ridiculous and is full of plot holes, but the chases and fight sequences add a lot of energy to the film. Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin, and Chi McBride lead the cast, and are able to add some personality to otherwise rote characters. A by the numbers thriller, Mercury Rising delivers a solid and enjoyable film that's full of action.

Jesse O (nl) wrote: This is a simple, straightforward film. But it's one that is also quite enjoyable for the time that you spend with it. I don't really expect this review to be long, since the film doesn't really have much going in it that I'd really need to go into detail in any of it. And I mean that since the film takes place in one location and the mission always remains the same, finding a way to get out of this situation alive. Whether that is by smoking the villain out or finding a way to separate the car they're in, it's got a same-y feeling throughout its running length. And that's not necessarily a bad thing, as I do think the film got some tension from the race against time elements the characters are facing. One of the things I liked about the movie was that you never actually got to see who the villain was or why he did what he did. All you got was the characters themselves speculating as to who it was and his motivations. And I think that led to the film having a focus on the survival aspects of it and not necessarily on trying to find out who it was and why he was doing it. If you're working against time, then finding out who the guy was should be the last thing on your mind. So, at the very least, the film went about its situation in a believable manner. The acting is solid and the cast is likable. I've never seen Kara Tointon before, but she was just lovely. There's not a lot of complexity to any of the characters, but at least you somewhat care about them and that's due to their chemistry. Like I said, not a real long review, but it is as straightforward as the movie itself. It's an enjoyable popcorn thriller. Nothing really special about it, but I had a good time regardless. It's on Netflix, so it's even better.

Renee L (es) wrote: As a Catholic, I enjoy a good exorcism movie, and this one was no exception. I love "The Exorcist," and I don't feel that frightened by it, outside of a healthy belief in demons and my own powerlessness against them. There should be more movies about priests, because our culture needs them, and their reputation has taken a hit lately in spite of the fact that the overwhelming majority of them have done nothing wrong. In this movie, I would have preferred more talk about Christ, rather than just "the Cross" or "the Crucifix," because Christ is so much more than His Cross or Crucifixion. This movie does have its unrealistic moments (not the actual possession), but it is satisfying, and as a Catholic, I found the ending deeply romantic.

Brandon S (mx) wrote: A movie with energy and moxie, but not the pointed exploration that "Dazed and Confused" was. This is a great comedy with the pitch-perfect meandering quality of all great films by Linklater. However, this one does feel out of its time. "Dazed and Confused" arrived at a perfect time in cinema, and a perfect time in Link's life, but this feels like a movie made too late.That being said, Linklater's worst (few as they may be) are still better than most others at the top of their game. This thing is fun and witty from the jump, and that's good enough for me.
