What’s good on TV this week? Discover our 5 suggestions.
1.Monday, November 8: “The last part” (TF1, 9:05 p.m. and 10 p.m.)
Christophe Maquet (played by Frank Dubosc) is an ambitious lawyer who will receive the Legion of Honor. He then learns that his father, seriously ill and with whom he is quarreled, has decided to organize “his departure” the very day of the ceremony … He will have to choose!
A TF1 TV movie, of course, but the opportunity to see Dubosc (co-writer) more emotionally facing the always interesting Guy Marchand.
2. Tuesday 9: Greta Thunberg in 3 parts (TIPIK, 8:05 p.m., 8:59 p.m. and 9:53 p.m.
A triptych on… Tipik dedicated to the young environmental activist Greta Thunberg. This is notably the story of the two-month trip that she intends to make in an electric car, then by train and then by catamaran. A journey that goes through the Cop 25 in Madrid during which she meets a glaciologist, a biologist in the forests of Canada and a climate specialist in California or a reindeer herder in Scandinavia.
3.Wednesday 10: “Chernony” (TIPIK, 8:05 p.m. and 9 p.m.)
On the night of April 26, 1986, an explosion sounded inside the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. Disaster in sight? Yes, but the Russian authorities will above all minimize and try for a long time to make believe that everything is “under control”. A totally exceptional mini-series for the quality of its narration, its casting, its staging. The high-end “historical reconstruction” of a mind-blowing drama.
4. Thursday 11: “Suburbicon” (RTL-TVI, 10:55 p.m.)
Suburbicon is, in the 1950s, the name of a neat little American town. The arrival of the first African-American couple, however, will trigger a chain of racist reactions and collective hysteria. A singular satirical comedy directed by Georges Clooney, a fable starring Matt Damon and Julianne Moore whose staging and grating humor evoke the Coen brothers.
5.Friday 12: “Jodie Foster, Hollywood in the skin” (La Trois, 8:30 pm)
The dazzling trajectory of a talented actress, Jodie Foster, who shot her first commercial at age 3, who, as a teenager, became known via Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi driver” (Palme d’or in Cannes) and then managed to lead a huge career in the Hollywood matrix without ever selling out or crashing and, emphasizing its differences and managing to change mentalities, from the inside.
