noah | 2014

Resultat d'imatges de noah

The polemic feature film Noah shows us a religious story where the viewer does not necessarily need to believe in god or think this is a Biblical passage. They just need to sit and enjoy of this beautiful story not just about humanity but also about the interior of Noah, a man who struggles because he is in the middle of everything - he is a fanatic of the creator but also a loving husband and father. Noah experiences an inner journey and the viewer sees that in all the phases. 

As said, this is based on the Biblical story of a man who made an ark to save two genders of every kind of animal in the world but it has no place for the humans, - except Noah's family - that should be destroyed because since they went out of the Eden they had been mean, and had killed each other. Noah receives a message from the creator that tells him he needs to do this ark in order to start everything again. However, it seems he and his family are going to be the last men on earth because they are not supposed reproduce like the other animal. Noah is going to have to experience this divergence between Earth of Creator. 

This is a great, enjoyable blockbuster by Darren Aronofsky that above all the religious story and what could be deduced from what it explains shows us a remarkable film lead by an amazing Russell Crowe and with actors like Emma Watson, that shows us she can be out of the Harry Potter shadow or Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth. The photography reminds you of The Lord of the rings and the visual effects and music are well mixed to create an epic atmosphere in the cinema. Probably, one of the best blockbusters of the year. 

p.s. Thanks to Iberia for the advanced screening of this 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…
