states of memory
15 February 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

after its end, the only important memory is the air. the flavor of a sad and nostalgic and delicate poem.picture of two people, the old dialogues between a woman and a man, totally different, parts of not common culture and states of soul, the lights and shadows of national day and the rain. nothing surprising. nothing special. only the intimist air. the significance of details. the fragility of emotions. and the melancholia. confessions and desires and need of the other as refuge. and nothing more. images from Java. and French fireworks. the bodies as words. and the circles of deep solitude. an art film. or support for well known states of memory. beautiful, bitter and map of travel in past.
