Storyline

Based on true stories, ALLURE is a process-driven film, where filmmakers and actors worked together through a series of improvisations to tell the stories of five women in New York, who come from five very different countries. Each one struggles to overcome her personal conflict, set against the Occupy Wall Street movements of 2011. These stories touch and inform each other, and create a larger narrative about gender, emigration, power, class, and personal politics. Written by Anonymous

Evocative and refreshing
23 August 2015 | by budspencSee all my reviews

Allure mixes fiction and documentary, actors and non-actors, following the life stories of five women in the late summer of 2011 during the Occupy movement in New York. The film traces many themes through the women's stories, including personal struggle, representation and politics but it mostly flows like a series of vignettes shot in beautiful black-and-white, making New York a subjective experience through the eyes of its characters.

The individual stories are episodic. Each one shows a dramatic moment in each of the women's lives that they have to overcome. In-between the film cuts to actual footage from the Occupy protests, and in the end the actors are part of the demonstrations, blurring the lines between real and fictional even further.

Situationism – a movement about cultural commodification from the 60s – provides an underlying layer of the film and its reinterpretation of 60s cinema techniques and themes in our time. The acting is excellent and so natural it makes the film often seem like a real documentary. Allure allows the viewer to layer all these stories, sounds and images together him/herself and experience something truly refreshing in our time of celebrity-driven worn-out movie formulas.
