the vow | 2012

Resultat d'imatges de the vow




As I watched it for the second time, I can say that I had time to enjoy the movie but also to observe a little bit more. Leo (Channing Tatum) has a theory, we're what we remember, everything we have in our minds is what makes us as we are. The problem in this film is, what if we don't remember part of the things that made us be like we were? 

Paige (Rachel McAdams) has this problem after suffering a car accident with his husband, Leo. When she wakes up she does not remember his husband or anything that happened in the last four years of her life. She just remembers the things she did before a big impact on her life changed everything, and changed her a lot too. This is a love story about a girl that has to try to fall in love again in a world that she does not know barely anything about and about a boy that needs a girl to fall in love again with him in totally different circumstances of the ones she fell in love with him.

As not so long ago Richard Curtis made us think of time and repeating with About time, this one also makes us think about time but also about what if we go back in time and we don't remember what we did in the "future". 

Even though this has some of the ingredients to be a romantic movie made in Hollywood it also has some things, like the ending, that change a little bit this movie to good and to be more original than it could be if this changes weren't made. 

Last but not least, it has to be said that this is a romantic drama so people who don't like this kind of movies aren't going to like this one, but people who do are going to because it has something special, probably the story, originality in certain aspects... that make it a good film.

coco | 2017

Coco és una pel·lícula que té el seu punt de partida en la història d'una família que viu a un llogaret, en castellà "aldea" de Mèxic, Santa Cecília. Només amb el nom fictici d'aquest llogaret tenim una pista del fil conductor i l'essència del film, la música.
Així doncs, ens trobem amb una família, fabricants de sabates tots ells, que - per una raó que s'explica al principi del film - tenen vetada la música en tots els àmbits de la seva vida. Tanmateix en Miguel, el més jove de la família, és un gran fanàtic d'Ernesto de la Cruz, qui sembla ser el més gran dels cantants mexicans de tots els temps. Per aquest motiu ell vol "viure el seu moment" i esdevenir músic encara que això suposi enfrontar-se i allunyar-se de la seva família.
Durant la pel·lícula, Miguel aprendrà a veure des d'una prespectiva el significat d'estimar i a valorar la seva família i també veurà quines són les conseqüències del pensament basat en la idea de "viure el …

modern times | 1936

I've seen parts of this movie on my history class, on tv, everywhere... and it's not a coincidence it's because Chaplin just shows to the world the reality, like Steinbeck or Fitzgerald did, but using images. The Kid was a film where Chaplin wanted to show the poberty of people on the 'roaring twenties'. It was the 'dark side' of the american dream. With Modern Times Chaplin shows us the new techniques of productivity (fordism and or taylorism) and how lots of people lost their opportunities, like Chaplin does in the movie, because they didn't have resources.
Chaplin is a genius, thats widely known and common among people. Because he knew, at the time, how did the world evolutionate. And portrayed it in a way that may seem very easy, know that we see it with prespective, but that surely was very difficult to do at the time.
Modern Times is clearly a masterpiece and with the limitations of the cinematography of the time shows the reality of the Great …

tren de nit a lisboa | 2013

Tren de nit a Lisboa és una pel·lícula que gira entorn un llibre i el seu autor, d'origen portuguès i, com moltes altres, està basada també en un llibre. Sota el meu parer, a més, la manera com es narren els fets en ella, la fan una pel·lícula que és una mena de "llibre visual".
Hi ha diversos temes que es tracten en el film que, especialment, em recorden a la manera en què estic últimament percebent les lectures que faig i potser per això l'he qualificada de llibre visual. 
En primer lloc, m'agradaria destacar la idea del viatge, similar que seria una "road movie" on els personatges troben el sentit d'allò que estaven buscant realitzant aquest viatge al seu interior, i a un indret nou.  En aquest cas no hi ha carretera, ni diverses parades, si no que només n'hi ha una, Lisboa. El protagonista, Raimund, un professor d'escola divorciat amb una vida que ell descriu com "avorrida"- i percebem que sense grans aspiracions vitals-, reali…
