the grand budapest hotel | 2014


Resultat d'imatges de the grand budapest hotel

Wes Anderson's most recent fabulous and critically acclaimed film shows us a story that seems taken from another world because it's everything, but not plausible in lots of ways. The Grand Budapest hotel itself is quite magic and becomes a story as well. 

The style of this movie is the Wes Anderson style, which means that there might people that really don't like or understand what's the point of the film because it doesn't have the comedic scenes we expect. It is a much more refined comedy lead by an amazing Ralph Fiennes that portrays Monsieur Gustave, a man that doesn't lose his way of behaving even if he is in prison. Based and inspired on Stefan Zweig works, this movie explains the arrival of nazism with a style and a screenplay that may not seem appropriate but that has some memorable quotes that denote that Zweig is behind those words. 

Everything seems like a paranoia with no sense and that it has nothing to tell but it ends up being a story of the war and some of the things that happened told from a point of view that probably anybody has explored like Anderson. The way he sees and shows the scenes that push out a lot of creativity, ideas,  a lot of personality, The Hotel and other places seem like a doll's house...  

It is a movie to appreciate how a director sees a story and how he explains what somebody else could have done in a totally different way. Some have said this is a masterpiece, it probably is because of the cleverness that lies underneath all the comedic and refined style of Mr. Gustave and his loyal helper, the lobby boy.

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 …

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…

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.
