PG. 2007. Bouncy teenager Nikki Blon­sky longs to be a big wheel on the lo­cal TV dance show, de­spite her weight and the op­po­si­tion of nasty TV exec Michelle Pfi­ef­fer.

M. 2009. Set in a fu­tur­is­tic world where hu­mans live in iso­la­tion and in­ter­act through sur­ro­gate ro­bots, a cop is forced to leave his home for the first time in years in or­der to in­ves­ti­gate the mur­ders of oth­ers’ sur­ro­gates.

AV. 2008. Grim, un­re­lent­ing cop­per yarn from a novel by Huges Pa­gan (a sort of French Joseph Wam­baugh).

Fa­mil­iar sto­ry­line gets an ef­fi­cient workover by a solid cast. Olivier Marchal.
