Interesting movie
20 June 2013 | by julioruveSee all my reviews

As a Venezuelan-Spanish co-production, Michael Ferrari breaks the stereotypes that have been used in the Venezuelan film, drives an impeccable appearance and a photograph of the hand of Alexandra Henao, fascinates viewers. Plans and camera movements in international cinema quality, enrich this film production which further supported his scenes with the cool colors and characterized.

In his debut, Azul y no tan Rosa, Ferrari presents a thesis which is certainly quite complex: intolerance for sexual diversity is a topic which is naturally difficult to address and that the director handled the film with a very positive simplicity, however the story tries to cover multiple frames as domestic violence, lack of communication between parents and children, gender change and low self-esteem, which, although they are strongly linked to the central idea, causes a slight imbalance in the argument.

It is almost impossible for the extraordinary soundtrack of this film go unnoticed. Composed by the brilliant Spanish pianist Sergio de la Puente, music composition gives it strength and character to the story hard to describe. The rhythm, melody and harmony beautify the scenes, muting, at times, the dialogue in a timely manner. No doubt invaluable added intensity.

Despite the mistakes that can be glimpsed in the film, Azul y no tan Rosa becomes literally eye drops for Venezuelan film. Definitely a work in which Miguel Ferrari adorns his directorial debut.

For Venezuela, a discussion of the Venezuelan cinema today is painful and inconsequential. To summarize, with this film, which tries to cover a little of this reality so degrading.
