The Extraordinary (2019)
I had a last trip to Melbourne to see films just before lockdown in March and this was a part of the Alliance Français French Film Festival screening at Palace cinemas. It was a 6pm screening on the day before Palace closed all its cinemas so I was lucky to see it.
Also known as Hors Normes and The Specials, this is a follow up feature by Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano, who also wrote and directed the beautiful The Intouchables (2011). I reviewed it here if you want to read more about it. I gave it 4.5 stars and loved it for its heart and authenticity. It’s not quite as mainstream as The Intouchables but I’m confident it will get a release at some point.
What was the last film you saw at a cinema? In Australia it’s been nearly two months that cinemas have been closed so you might find it a bit hard to remember.
