Best of our times...
4 December 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

"Elipsis" is, probably, the most important Venezuelan cinematographic production of our times. Last year, all the country watched "Secuestro Express", a very interesting movie that shows the national reality and which I called 'a calling to the new Venezuelan cinema'. Since then, movies like "El Don" and most recently "Miranda" made theaters full.

With "Elipsis", however, you can tell a difference. There's something in the trailer that shows superiority; you can see a high quality level. Giving details, the writer/director Eduardo Arias-Nath has got together the best representatives of the country in terms of cameras. With a production team that has recognized art directors, cinematographers and production designers, Arias-Nath arrives to the big screen raising the production level Venezuela is used to.

Not just that, but his unpredictable script and his disordered time line and plot is among the most original things I've seen in the country in a long time. With a defined stile, the story walks us through the lives of different main characters who all spin around a same situation without us being able to realize completely.

To reveal little parts of what happens would be a mistake, because "Elipsis" is a movie that astonishes from various levels (mostly in the peculiar edition in which the director also worked); and you have to watch it to discover it. With just saying that Gaby Espino's (beautiful Venezuelan model) performance surprises, you'll realize what I'm trying to say.

The camera work is impeccable; the shots allow us to observe not only what's going on, but in a lot of parts the background of the main element, like a door opening and closing, and it is an adding for a moment of tension in the movie. There's always something more to see around the main thing; even in frames where the camera is shooting from above, generating an effect that gets the viewer dizzy. The image also highlights because of being very tidy, unlike cameras of movies like the previously mentioned "Secuestro Express".

But what undoubtedly highlights the most is the cast. Composed by national and even international talent (the Brazilian Seu Jorge is a revelation as a drug dealer), the group of actors is of the highest caliber. Movie actors like Erich Wildpret leave us breathless; while television stars like Marisa Roman leave aside the soap opera style to give another touch to their characters. The cameos are uncountable, but recognizable; there's not one unknown person in camera. In the film's parties, you can see celebrities everywhere; and even a short appearance by the known actor Jean Paul Leroux ("Secuestro Express").

However, is the already international actor the one who steals the show. His name is Edgar Ramirez, he is Venezuelan and his power of conviction and capacity to transmit emotions are two enough reasons to watch the film if nothing else seems interesting. I feel like giving away details of his portrayal, but I better stay quiet.
