this film really stressed me out but holy shit, Katie Jarvis is actually incredible? she was out on the street while having a fight with her boyfriend when Andrea Arnold decided to cast her in the film, and no Hollywood actress could have done it better. watching Mia come of age is so raw and real and gritty, being born in the UK but never growing up there really makes me feel drawn to English/Scottish/Irish coming-of-age films and makes me…
yet another stunning portrait of lust and desire from Céline Sciamma. I've never seen having an undying crush on someone be portrayed so perfectly. I loved every moment of this and although my experiences aren't exactly the same as Marie's I still identified with her in such a profound way. I can't believe that this was Pauline Acquart's first ever acting job! and Adèle Haenel is a scene stealer as usual, god what a WOMAN <3
truly don't remember the last time I was this angry and upset at the ending of a movie. all I'll say is that it's painfully clear as to why the director of the first one says he pretends like the sequel doesn't exist. like this is just a deplorable way of ending a film and basically saying a huge fuck you to all of your beloved characters and saying you didn't care about any of them...
*erasing this from my memory now*
I could actually go on for hours about how much I love this film. the female friendship dynamic and the way that's put to the test when they realize how much danger they're in is so IMMACULATE that I am still shocked this is written and directed by a man. I love all of these characters and how not a single one of them is perfect or trying to be.
the atmosphere is a completely different story, never have I…
