  • Jacquot

    Jacquot

    ★★★★★

    Waves. Jacques. Camera. Sun.

    Jacquot de Nantes, from shot one, a film in which Varda engulfs us with her love for her husband, his films and their treasured cinema. Melted together through a whirlpool into a masterpiece of a film. Varda does what she does best in this one: showing her love for her fellow man through her lens. And how can she do that better than about the person she loved the most?

    Her dynamic camera tells the story,…

  • The Beauty

    The Beauty

    ★★★★½

    "Mommy when I grow up I'll be even more beautiful just like you, right?
    And we will fly away. I saw a poster today saying you can fly anywhere you want."

    "Silly, you may fly away, but you can't run from yourself."

    "Why run? We'll fly away together and we"ll be happy."

    "People always think it's better somewhere else. But a happy person is happy anywhere."

    The title Grazuole or Beautiful refers to a game that Lithuanian children play in…

  • The Worst Person in the World

    The Worst Person in the World

    ★★★★½

    In The Worst Person In The World we are looking back across the Oslo fjord, through Julia’s eyes, at the life of a young thirty-something in 2021.

    The Worst Person In The World is a very strong film because it is relatable. Not in the sense that I recognized myself in the main character. Because the main character has a very different character than mine and is in a different stage of life. But recognizable in the sense of what…

    Amores Perros

    ★★★★½

    Un duelo salvaje advierte

    Lo cerca que ando de entrar

    A wild duel warns

    How close I am to entering

    My Latin American uncle was last week on a visit and asked me why I was going to work in the theatre until 2 o'clock and come home by bike instead of taking the car? I found this a strange question.

    En un mundo descomunal

    Siento mi fragilidad

    In a huge world

    I feel my fragility

  • Before Sunset

    Before Sunset

    ★★★★½

    “You can never replace anyone because everyone is made up of such beautiful specific details.”

    Before Sunset is a film that I actually wanted to watch because it takes place in Paris and I was on holiday there last week and for the famous quote from the Notre Dame (“but you have to think that Notre Dame will be gone one day”), which I have now seen half burnt down for the first time. In the end, it turned out…

  • In the Mood for Love

    In the Mood for Love

    ★★★★★

    “Quizás, quizás, quizás”

    In the mood for love. A film in which Wong succeeds in bringing the title to life. The mood he is able to create is incredible. Warm colours dance in the pictures and jump from room to room, filling each place with a glow that reflects the mood for love, reinforcing the characters' inner struggle between inner feelings and outer expectations. The clothes are not to be forgotten either, the beautiful outfits that our two main characters…
