Netflix does not miss its weekly appointment with movie premieres and series to get hooked for a couple of hours… or the whole weekend, each one with their tastes and their time…
This week it was the turn of a French film that, with its drawbacks, promises to be an interesting date for fans of the most exciting action movies: Athena.
If you often watch series when traveling or in various parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for entertainment consumption.
The film is directed by Romain Gavraswhich has to its credit feature films such as The world is Yoursalthough it is specialized in music videos.
Dali Bensalah (No time to die), the debutante Sami Slimane, Anthony Bajon y Alexis Manenti lead the cast of the new Netflix original movie.
Netflix’s new commitment to French cinema
Athena is a display of fast-paced action scenes that, according to some critics, come to overshadow the narrative at times.
The death of a young man in a disadvantaged neighborhood after an alleged clash with the police, causes an outbreak of violence that, ultimately, sees two friends, Abdel and Karim, confront each other on opposite sides.
Things will get worse when the authorities unmask the real killers, unleashing a brutal war in the neighborhood of Atenea.
The film will try to recount the successive tensions that take place in France between the police and the residents of neighborhoods like the one represented by Atenea. The movie original from Netflix is written by Elias Belkeddar, Ladj Ly and Romain Gavras himself.
The streaming platform’s commitment to international content is one of the great assets that Netflix has always had and that has left very interesting titles from many countries.
And at hour and 39 minutes of Athena seems little to you, you can always marathon series of Netflix like Stranger Things or Cobra Kai, which recently premiered its fifth season.
