What's on tv

The new season on Canal + is under way and the tv program is highlighting their women presenters this week. For me, it's the second week of the US Open. The tournament is very interesting this middle weekend. Who else will stumble?

Ingrid Bergman is a citizen of the world. Wait... aren't we all?

What NOT to watch this week. Our tv magazine rates shows and movies using a star system: one star is ok, four stars is best. They use another symbol for really bad movies: the red dot. It means "à zapper" (change the channel!). The editors often include comments about the movie that make me laugh.

I've never seen this second installment of "Basic Instinct" (I did see the first one), and was surprised to see it get panned in our tv program. A quick check on the internet shows me that Roger Ebert gave it only 1 1/2 stars and the Tomatometer at Rotten Tomatoes only registers a 7%. So, it's unanimous.

Basic Instinct 2. American/British/German crime drama. Directed by Michael Caton-Jones, 2006.
With Sharon Stone, David Morrissey, David Thewlis, and Charlotte Rampling.
In London, a romance novelist meets a renowned psychiatrist who must evaluate her sanity as part of a murder investigation.
 A hollow screenplay and actors bordering on the ridiculous. The film's failure at the box office was scathing.
For adults and teenagers over 12.
