Film Review : The Martian

J’adore Ridley Scott et Matt Damon, donc rien d’étonnant à ce que j’aime Seul Sur Mars.

D’abord, ce n’est pas un film sur les extra-terrestres. D’ailleurs, on ne voit absolument aucun extra-terrestre. (pardon pour le spoiler !!). C’est un film sur l’humanité.

Ce n’est ni stupéfiant ni époustouflant (ni aucun de tous ces adjectifs qui rendent un film Oscarisable), mais c’est magnifiquement bien filmé, très bien interprété et ça fait réfléchir. Notamment sur les enjeux qui sont au cœur de la société suite à la révolution technologique : jusqu’où sommes-nous prêts à aller pour survivre ? Que vaut une vie humaine maintenant? (Bon, en tout cas, c’est ce que le film a évoqué pour moi.)

Mark Watney (Matt Damon) est accidentellement abandonné sur Mars lorsque son équipe évacue la planète suite à une tempête. Il survit miraculeusement et tente ensuite de rester en vie suffisamment longtemps pour être sauvé … Sur une planète où il n’y a ni source d’eau, ni aucune végétation. 

Un film plein d’émotion, mais aussi drôle et plein de charme. Surtout, si vous allez le voir, choisissez la version 3D ! (La qualité s’est beaucoup améliorée et la 3D vaut vraiment le coup.) Aux côtés de Damon, on retrouve Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig (!!!), Kate Mara, Sean Bean et Chiwetel Ejiofor (toujours génial… vous vous souvenez de lui dans 12 Years A Slave ?).

  • I agree, totally loved this movie! (Even if it put me off eating potatoes for a while… :p )

  • Any movie that makes me cry deserves some brownie points. Matt Damon was amazing – and I’m a sucker for a space movie.

  • The movie is not bad. But the book is EXCELLENT.

  • NEED to read. BRB, going to order it on Amazon now…

  • this movie was so entertaining and enjoyable. Definitely a must-see in theaters!

  • This is another classic the BOOK is WAY BETTER than the movie situation. I read the book and was floored by how Weir constructed the characters, Whatney’s humor (wayy better in the book, again), the trials and tribulations, etc. The movie just didn’t capture the sparkle of the book and I though I love a lot of the actors in the movie, thought it was honestly rather poorly cast. A disappointment.

  • On it !!!

  • Emotional + space movie = tugs at my heartstrings. Oh, plus Matt Damon…

  • I did go see this last night (in 3D) and it was very good. Just as you say– not an Oscar winner or anything but quite beautiful, thought-provoking, and full of humor and good acting. Thanks for the recommendation, Neada!

  • I agree with Aydan. The classic « book so much better ».
    I think it is because there’s a gap for our own imagination when we read a book – that’s a natural and good thing – and it creates expectations about the movie.
    This is the good side of the thing about this movie from my personal point of view.
    The bad and sad thing about it is that , in my opinion, it fails on the big thing on the book: what kind of relationship do you have with yourself ? Maybe it defines the kind of relationship you have with the world and will define the way you will deal with…being accidentally left alone in Mars. I truly think that Watney’s intelligence AND sense of humor – together – saved his life. And made that whole NASA people in the book into better people. Me included, as a reader.
    I think the movie fails totally on that.
