We take a look at "The Human Voice", Spanish director Pedro Almodovar's short, sharp take on Jean Cocteau's 1928 drama, with a luminous, grief-stricken Tilda Swinton in the leading role. Film critic Lisa Nesselson then tells us why Steven Soderbergh's latest release "Let Them All Talk", starring Meryl Streep, is an entertaining watch and an impressive feat in the form of a lightning-fast film shoot.

We also meet the extraordinary real-life character "Madame Claude" through her cinematic avatar, as a new French film transports us to the world of high-class call girls, with some high-profile name-dropping along the way.

And we check out the selection at this year's French animation festival, which has once again swapped the city of Rennes for an entirely online edition.
