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.

roma | 2018

A really good (and must) film to watch during the holidays. This is apparently an ordinary story told by an immense Alfonso Cuarón. The movie was shot in black and white and it is also beautifully shot in long takes. Fundamentally Roma is the tale of two women, Cleo (play by Yalitza Aparicio) working as a live-maid for a beleaguered upper middle-class family in Mexico City. It is an autobiographical story from the director and during the film you can see that there are signs of tensions and dysfunction from both the family and the maid. Those little things are hints and demonstrations of the feelings of the characters. The man of the house (Antonio) can't stand being at his own house, you can see that by the way he parks his car, and his wife  (Sofía) is struggling to keep the family together. 
So, meanwhile Antonio keeps travelling for what, supposedly, are business trips, a stressed Sofia one day tells the children it would be a good idea to write to their dad, imploring him to…

mamma mia! here we go again! | 2018

Ten years after... here we go again! Mamma Mia! 'cause is that kind of memory that you will recall from your summer. 
Besides from the original cast with Donna Sheridan - Meryl Streep - as the main character along with her daughter Sophie - Amanda Seyfried - in this film we have the young Donna (Lily James), Bill (Josh Dylan), Sam (Jeremy Irvine), Harry (Hugh Skinner),  Rosie (Alexa Davies), Tanya (Jessica Keenan Wynn) and Sophie's grandma (Cher). The past and the present from this characters is combined and intertwined and keep you on the edge of your seat during 2 hours. 
Normally, sequels from movies aren't as good as the first one, but in my own opinion, this film is as good as the first one mainly because of the amazing performance that Lily James - young Donna - offers us. She totally knows how to step in Meryl Streep's shoes (and that's not easy as Meryl may probably one of the best actresses ever). She has charisma and accomplishes the mission of making yo…

the guernsey literary and potato peel pie society | 2018

This film is based on the book written by Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows where every chapter is a letter written by a different character. 
Juliet Ashton (Lily James) is the main character of this lovely film that portrays the story from some citizens from Guernsey Island that became a family when the nazis occupied the island during the II World War. As they had taken away all what they loved, they started a literary club where they discussed about books and life while they refuged from the demands of the nazis. 
Juliet Ashton, a londoner who lost her parents when she was a girl, meets this literary club through a letter that Dawsey Adams, a citizen from the island, sends to her when he found out her name and address in a book from the local library that had been abandoned. Juliet that loves reading books, but also is aspiring to be a writer thinks that visting the island can be her inspiration to do so as she is curious about this literary club and its story so she asks her best fri…
