One of the most anticipated premieres of this 2022 that, finally, arrives in theaters this Friday, April 22, is north man. Two years after the premiere of The Lighthouse, Robert Eggers returns ready to surprise the public with his third feature film as director. A film, the most ambitious of the filmmaker’s career, for which he has relied on luxury protagonists, including Alexander Skarsgård, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe.

The film takes us to Iceland in the 10th century. There, Amleth, a Berserker warrior who decides to put aside the looting of the Slavic peoples, to focus on fulfilling a promise he made when he was just a child. He went when he was 10 years old and after witnessing the death of his father, and the kidnapping of his mother, at the hands of his own uncle. The thirst for revenge has grown over time, and now he is willing to do anything to put in his place that man who took away what he loved the most.

Set in Venice, the film follows a group of Spanish tourists who have traveled to the Italian city to enjoy a few days of fun while exploring each of its corners.

Arthur Rambo

Arthur Rambo is the title of another of the theatrical releases that we recommend this week. Laurent Cantet is the director of this feature film, which has been screened at the Toronto and San Sebastian festivals, and promises to make you think about the use of social networks.

The story follows Karim D., a young writer who has become the new media phenomenon, not only for his acclaimed novel, but also for the content he shares through his social networks. It seemed that nothing could go wrong, but his success is threatened when someone starts to leak some of the offensive comments he made on Twitter, under the pseudonym Arthur Rambo.
