Winona (2019)

Seems like an ordinary trip to a remote beach. Four young women enjoy the warmth of the sun, the coolness of the sea and one another's company. None of them is "Winona".

Storyline

Seems like an ordinary trip to a remote beach. Four young women enjoy the warmth of the sun, the coolness of the sea and one another's company. None of them is "Winona". They spent the day on silly games, girl talk, songs and dance. Laughter punctuated by tears, the tears washed away by make believe. Slowly the day comes to a close and our four heroines must say goodbye. An unassumingly mysterious and deeply moving story revealing itself with a language of intimacy, woven out of love and grief. Its secret will be kept till the very end. Written by The Boy

'But it's shot on 16mm film!!!1!1!1'
17 February 2020 | by helena_snapeSee all my reviews

Pretentious lines, soulless recital of dialogue (which may perhaps work in Giorgos Lanthimos' films but in this case it just feels cheap), pop-culture references and name-dropping just for the sake of it. Just because the colours look pretty it doesn't necessarily mean that this films conveys the atmosphere and spirit of a lazy summer day. Just because something is shot on 16mm film, it doesn't equal great filmmaking. Definitely not worth sitting through this so you can get a semblance of plot for the last 15 or so minutes.
