The Duke

Roger Michell, UK, 2020o

s
vBack

This British comedy is based on the true events of one of the most spectacular thefts of all time. Kempton Bunton, a working class man from the north of England climbs into London's National Gallery through a bathroom window one night and steals a valuable painting of the Duke of Wellington. His motive: to get the government to exempt retired people from television licence fees.

Porté par une belle énergie, des dialogues savoureux d’humour anglais (la scène du procès, hilarante, a des allures de one man show) de super acteurs, ce film, le dernier de Roger Michell, se savoure comme un bon muffin à l’heure du thé.

La Rédaction

Le réalisateur futé de Coup de foudre à Notting Hill et d’Un week-end à Paris peut s’appuyer sur la performance pleine de truculence de Jim Broadbent, parfait en héros ordinaire, devenu populaire lors de son procès. À ses côtés, Helen Mirren excelle en pilier de la famille, faussement revêche.

Jacques Morice

Dans un pur style anglo-saxon, Roger Michell offre une comédie rafraîchissante et enjouée où le héros dandy et désinvolte s’engage dans un combat autant théâtral que social.

Laurent Cambon
