girls | 2012 -


Imatge relacionada

Lena Dunham's tv series Girls is widely known and has been critically acclaimed. It talks about girls, as the title says, but not in a typical way - like many tv series or movies that are just a collection of clichés. Showing part of her real life story, Dunham writes among with other people in some chapters about the life of four girls who have finished college, or are just going to, and that try to find their places in the world. 

The protagonist, Hannah (Lena Dunham),  is a writer who either the "leader" of the group and the tv series. The good thing about this series is that in every single chapter there's time to laugh and be identified with the situations the girls live. You don't need to be their age to be identified, parents can see their daughters and sons here... and everybody can have fun while watching it because it is just a kind of an "animated with real people" book written by Hannah/Dunham that portrays some of the most common experiences that the young generations live nowadays. 

I think the secret of it success can be found in the way all the things are explained, it is a refreshing, good looking comedy. It is not unreal or very exaggerated,  it tries to show the now. With that being said I don't want to finish without talking about the gifted and talented Lena Dunham who is creator, writer, producer and director of this tv series and who writes in such an innovative, creative and humorous way that it finally becomes the trademark of this tv series. Dunham is one of those girls who you either love or hate, because of her personality in the tv series (and real life) but I think that the success of this woman lies on this contradiction.

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 …

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…

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 …
