la grande bellezza | 2013

Resultat d'imatges de la grande belleza



How can you find pure beauty, inspiration, love, pureness itself in a vanish world were everything seems to be filled with something but instead it is void and most of the time non-sense? 

Gep Gambardella has been living in Rome - one of the most beautiful cities of the world, with art, love, history - for a long time. He is a writer and has only written one novel in his entire life... he just does not find what he wants to write another one, the great beauty. I don't want to decode all the movie, even though I could be talking about that for hours. I loved the end of the film.

Throughout all the film you see great things, beautiful and non beautiful things, everything in Gep's life is like a mirage, it is very superficial it doesn't seem real, you just need to see the first scenes where there's a party that reminds you of the italian leaders (like Berlusconi) and the way they are. Gep realizes que isn't made for this life even though he has been living like this since he was young... There's a whole different look to the city of Rome. The transitions are amazingly well done, probably the best I've seen, it seems it's a never ending story where you someone is telling you a story but suddenly you don't know how it ends. Worth seeing, I really liked the protagonist and Toni Servillo's performance of him. I think it's all like a synesthesia, and right know there are very few movies that are able to do that.... worth seeing - but not for people who don't want to be thinking, reflecting, discovering.... if they want action they aren't going to find it in this movie.

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…
