The Revenant (2015)
The "Revenant" copies Tarkovsky?
The "Revenant" copies Tarkovsky? Renevant copies Herzog's "Aguirre", Annaud's "The Bear", Mel Gibson's "Apokalypto" is the right answer is yes. The Mexican director has put a lots from these films in the mix, that's why you have the sense of deja vu, watching "Revenant". The story with Tarkovsky is just a brilliant -but fake- marketing idea to give a touch of art and "poetry" to this moderate big budget Di Caprio film and so to achieve better sells outside America, where things seem to be difficult at the box office. The only common between Inarritu and Tarkovsky is that they both finally give you the same empty taste under the well done but completely artificial universe they create. But this is not what the creators of this incredible story "Revenant by Tarkovsky" want to spotlight!
Three Days Happiness (2012)
A bizarre wonderful world
Three young women are at the heart of this story: Irina, Anna and Vera. The first is a prostitute, whose dream is to move to Canada to change her life. The second, a saleswoman in a bookshop, wants to get married to overcome her family's trauma. And the third, a literature student, discovers the secrets of her parents. Around them, a whole world that seems to be moved only by one thing: money.
The sense of the film, the color, the acting, the direction, it is cold, icy. It reflects the psychology and actions of persons trapped in situations that exceed them. Three Days of Happiness do not try to be simply realistic. The film chooses to highlight the instinctive, the snapshot, the unseen, what we don't notice. Athanitis takes advantage of the unsaid, the silence, the comprehensive short sequences. He gives a symbolic meaning to objects and the body, assigning to them an aptly narrative character, reminding to us Bresson.
Filmed entirely in a dark blue tone, with long shots on faces, and an extremely accurate tone, the whole film gives a strange, sometimes vampire's sensation. Watching the film, I felt been hypnotized, diving in a realistic but at the same time, bizarre world. I loved this film!
