Papeles en el viento (2015)
A beautiful story about friendship and love
This is a beautiful story about friendship and love: love for the family, love for a friend, and most of all, love for a soccer team.
"Papeles en el viento" begins with the death of El Mono (Torres) and develops from there on. His brother (Peretti) and two friends (Echarri and Rago), lifelong friends and fans of Buenos Aires' Independiente soccer team, push back their grief to focus on Guadalupe, El Mono's daughter.
The story often goes back as flashbacks that reveal the three friends relationships with El Mono, and how much they loved each other. The deep love for the dead friend, and for the soccer team is the motor of the story.
It is based on a novel by Eduardo Sacheri, who was also behind the screenplay of Juan Jose Campanella's "El secreto de sus ojos" (The Secret in their Eyes).
Letters to Juliet (2010)
You will know how it ends after 10 minutes
The story is too unbelievable and silly and you will know how it ends after 10 minutes: it's a pretty straightforward tale of young love found and old love sought for, with Amanda Seyfried's character helping an older woman's attempt to find a man she loved long ago in Italy.
Eagan and Seyfried don't have any chemistry at all; there was no humor or any interesting situation to capture my attention; the story followed all the tropes and clichés that this genre so often succumbs to and it takes far too long to reach the convenient resolutions that are clear from the beginning.
It has to be said, though, that the locations in Italy where the film was shot were absolutely gorgeous.
My rating wasn't lower only because of that, and because of Vanessa Redgrave. She is brilliant. She acts so natural that she doesn't look like she is acting at all.
Recommended only for female teens.
