Subscribe to Canal+ >Discover without further delay: The English, Taboo and Nightmare Alley.What films and series to watch tonight on myCanal?An exciting series: The EnglishSynopsisThe Englishwoman Cornelia Locke arrives in the Wild West of the United States to revenge on the man she believes is responsible for her son’s death. There she meets Eli Whipp, a former cavalry scout, from the Pawnee people. Very quickly, they discover a common history that they will have to overcome. The opinion of CNET France With its grandiose sets, its careful staging and its breathtaking cinematography, The English is a western as beautiful to watch as it can be violent. The savage side of 1890s America is reinforced by a violent plot in which no favors are given to the characters. Everyone must fight to survive and reach their goals, even the Englishwoman freshly arrived from the Old Continent, played by Emily Blunt with great talent. The English is a modern western as we see too few of them, which underlines the harshness of the era it depicts rather than watering it down. A gallery of secondary characters embodied by effective actors advances the narrative around Cornelia and Eli, and this mini-series proves to be a fresco across the West in which the bonds between the main characters only grow stronger over time. thread of episodes. Result: a captivating show in six episodes not to be missed. Watch the trailer of the series: A bewitching series: Taboo Synopsis Considered dead for years, James Keziah Delaney resurfaces in London in 1814, after 10 years spent in Africa . Back in possession of illegally acquired diamonds and determined to avenge the death of his father, he will refuse to sell what remains of the family inheritance to the British East India Company and will take it into his head to build his own trading and transport empire. CNET FranceTaboo’s review takes us to grimy early 19th century London to follow the story of a man determined to live his life on his own terms. Imagined by Steven Knight, Chips Hardy and Tom Hardy, this English series draws on an esoteric side, a bit like Peaky Blinders did also (also created by Steven Knight), to tell an interesting story and portray a central character of the most surprising. The main argument in favor of Taboo is Tom Hardy. The actor transcends the screen in the role of James Delaney, a man who no longer counts his enemies and is ready to do anything to achieve his ends. Violent, troubled, traumatized, Delaney is a character as fascinating as it is fearsome, and Hardy brilliantly brings him to life. If the series was canceled after only one season (whose story still finds a satisfactory conclusion), it deserves to be seen if only to admire the performance of the British actor. Watch the trailer for the series: An intriguing film: Nightmare Alley Synopsis While going through a bad patch, Stanton Carlisle arrives at a traveling fair and manages to win the good graces of a clairvoyant, Zeena, and her husband Pete, a former glory mentalism. Learning from them, he sees this as a way to get his ticket to success and decides to use his new talents to rip off the elite of good New York society in the 1940s.The opinion of CNET FranceWith this feature film, the director Guillermo del Toro offers us a film noir against the backdrop of a carnival and swindle. Nightmare Alley unfolds in two parts, first focusing on Stanton’s (Bradley Cooper) journey to fame and then turning into a psychological thriller. The story struggles a bit to set itself up but benefits from del Toro’s masterful staging to make up for its flaws. From the lighting sets to the costumes and the atmosphere created by del Toro for this film, everything shows that the director has mastered the genre of film noir perfectly and that he knows how to put forward a story that is as nightmarish as it is intriguing. In addition, Nightmare Alley can rely on a nice cast with not only Bradley Cooper, but also Toni Collette, Rooney Mara, and the stunning Cate Blanchett, devilishly effective in her role as femme fatale. To see if you like films with a unique atmosphere and the touch of the Mexican director.
