What films are on TV at Easter? TV Tips for the Holidays – Media

The gentlemen

Gangster film, Pro Sieben, Sunday, 8:15 p.m

British cinema is strongly represented in this Easter programme, particularly through Guy Ritchie, whose films oscillate brutally between shudders and tenderness. The gentlemen in the Movie of 2019, led by Matthew McConaughey and Charlie Hunnam, are tastelessly style-conscious, their beards trimmed to the millimeter, what they do has to do with large-scale marijuana cultivation, blood and puke and racism – a Jewish antagonist they actually want to cut “a pound of flesh” out of the body, following the literary example. At your side Hugh Grant and Michelle Dockery in completely unfamiliar roles. Also by Guy Ritchie: cash truck2021 (Pro Sieben, Sunday 11.35 p.m.), Sherlock Holmes: Play in the Shadows2011 (Sat 1, Sunday, 11 p.m.), Aladdin2019 (Sat 1, Saturday, 8:15 p.m.).

Even old Robert Redford is busy robbing banks in A crook & gentleman2018 (ARD, night on Monday, 0 a.m.), he acts extremely discreetly and cautiously during the raids and escapes, which makes David Lowery’s film strangely unreal.
