In May, Canal+ lets you go through all the emotions: the big poilade with The torchKoh Lantesque Suite The flamestill with Jonathan Cohen, the breathless tension with the answererthriller in five episodes with Martin Freeman, and the exotic vertigo of Dune, giga-adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel by Denis Villeneuve. If you prefer gloomy malaise, the Palme d’Or Titanium will also land on the encrypted channel this month. And to recover from all these emotions, you can always get on board with The Rock and Emily Blunt in Jungle Cruiseadapted from a successful American attraction at Disneyland.

Event of the month: The Torch: Adventurers of Chupacabraand 23 of

After a splash during incarceration in 2020, The flame eventually returns to Canal+. Or rather, The torch, as it is no longer a parody of the Bachelor, but this time from Koh-Lanta. A good way to remind the cast of the main character of the first season, Marc (or MARC), still played by Jonathan Cohen, as well as several actresses who were also present before, such as Leïla Bekhti, Géraldine Nakache, Adèle Exarchopoulos or Ana Girardot . New faces complete the distribution, not least: Kad Merad, Gérard Darmon, Mister V, Jonathan Lambert or even Jérôme Commandeur, who replaces Vincent Dedienne as presenter. Like any good survival game, The torch promises its share of betrayal, strategy and more or less epic moments, but also and above all good stupidity as Jonathan Cohen and his clique manage to foresee us.

We are curious: the answererfrom May 9th

We’re a long way from the good-natured Watson of the series Sherlock, but here’s Martin Freeman again as an English agent, in a series that flirts much more with hyper-realism. And for good reason, the answerer was written by a former police officer whose ambition was clear: to show the complexity of this often very arduous profession through its representatives, and the psychological fragility of the latter. The protagonist is a Liverpool police officer – expect a nice gallery of accents – in the midst of an existential crisis, juggling between his tough side with sometimes brutal methods and a painful past that has left quite a few traces. In the course of his duties, he gets along well with petty crime, revealing his new teammate, a recently landed recruit who will have to get used to his comrade’s practices. In short, nothing very original in this scenario, but this miniseries in five episodes promises a palpable tension from the first images, and beautiful interpretations.

We are happy to (re)see: Dunethe 20 of

Last year’s global box office sensation, Dune already lands on Canal+. If you haven’t seen it in theaters yet, which is a shame given its mastodontic aspect, you can immerse yourself in the fascinating universe created by Frank Herbert and brought to life here by Denis Villeneuve. The latter was able to capture and transcribe the grandeur and mystique of the original work, enhanced by impressive visuals and a soundtrack – signed Hans Zimmer – that fits perfectly with the general mood. To top it off, this journey to the planet Arrakis is made in the company of a 5-star cast, from Timothée Chalamet to Zendaya via Josh Brolin, Oscar Isaac or Javier Bardem.
