Luna Chu
17 October 2018
Her story. Her dream. Her succes. And its roots, desires, father. A lovely film about life. Its duties. Its anonymous maker. And the kick transforming everything. Luna Chu is one of characters reminding ourselves. And this is the basic motif for see "One small step". For its story. For its symbols. And for the seductive simplicity of it. A film about succes as result of a gorgeous dream.

about war
17 October 2018
Not a war film. But a film about war. Not the best. But decent. And good reflection of good intentions. It is a drama presenting two young men in Iraq war. Theirs mothers. The traumas. The choice of one. And the confession of the other. Sure, it is not real convincing. But, after so manyy great war films, "The Yellow Birds" has the purpose to remind the frame of heroism , sacrifice, lost of the other. And, in this sense, it does a good job. Because, against its status of sketch, it has the virtue to present, in the right nuances, a tragedy who, in this case, escapes from the circle of special effects and easy melodrama or heavy patriotism. A decent film. With few great scenes.

First Contact (II) (2012)
special
17 October 2018
The beautiful cinematography could be the lead motif to see the movie. Not exactly for aesthetic reasons but for the inspired translation of the state of loneliness of characters. The second lead virtue - the minimalism. An the seductive story of a teenager girl, her too protective father, a stranger and a final decision changing everything. It is easy to define all as a sort of poetry. Important - it is a real well crafted film.

Green Eyed (2012)
the identity
16 October 2018
...disturbing a perfect social life. Reminding basic things. Proposing unsecurety about all what seems so clear. A parable about a young promising succes man and a ghoul. . The last scene is real great. Because it gives the right definition of the identity of biyarre ghoul and the too ambitious and superficial Lloyd.

memories
16 October 2018
A message from past. Impressive for the impecable craft. For the minimalist story. For the memories about that Los Angeles of 1991. For the status of revenge story. For the virtue of wise manifesto against violence. And for the great portraits of characters. Not a comfortable film. But useful tool for reflection. About choices. And about death.

Rabbits (2017)
intense
16 October 2018
A powerful drama. Two brothers and a dark relation. A space like the only alive world . Rabbits . And the well crafted atmosphere. A stranger and his presence changing everything. It could be defined as Sci. Fi or just as a sort of portrait of oppresive relation. As a sort of attachment or oppression. The end is open. Because each detail is used for a great work. As warning. Or definition of a slice of near reality.

like a black coffe
16 October 2018
A sort of romanticism. Fresh, seductive, cold, too long or short. The convincing performance, nice irony about loneliness and media and refuge. Touching. And interesting more for the really story who inspired it. A woman in a fast food joint. Long days. Different persons and the dialogue with the policeman as the best part of film. A special short film. And its bitter atmosphere.

not comfortable
15 October 2018
A girl as a boy. Games, soccer, jokes. And the challenge of a new presence. A real girl , seducing her mates, giving thze traits of feminity. Provocative and seductive. And the answer of Chloe in a fight about power. A cold atmosphere and an inspired end. And a beautiful story about self defining.

Sure, in my case is a sort of nostalgia. Because In familie was a real good adventure of a great team.

Version of IT. Crumbs from Snow White. Tension, dark revelation, exercise of seduction. All - in wise manner crafted. A film about innocence and evil. Admirable work for its own voice in the large circle of bad clowns.

a proposition
14 October 2018
...not comfortable. Or reasonable. A contract as border between reality and fantaisie. A risky game. Memories from childhood. And provocative theories about the evolution of a biyarre proposition. Short, a provocative film. Admirable crafted. About a young woman and her date and a contract who could change everything. The last scene is the perfect solution to the beautiful construction of tension.

Check Please (2015)
the ring
14 October 2018
A confusion. Tension and happiness. A brutal gesture for a noble cause. And a nice script. The humor is spiced, the story works, the seductive easy confusion is not the most inspired used but , for a love short film for Valentine Day it could be one of beautiful choices. Because the idea is brilliant and the way for use it is like... a strawberry cake.

A ring. Two couples. And a confusion. All, in a fancy restaurant

Ironied (2015)
9/10
a parable
14 October 2018
The profound simplicity of plot does it great. Two men. One - a social assistance worker. The other - a homeless loking, maybe, to change his life. The first - front to different events who determin him to go late to job. The last - a story about past and about the deep loneless. Result - a story reminding parables. About every day small problems defining a bad day. And about the lost of all . Maybe, in strange way, a film about chance. And about the real happiness.

Grape Soda (2014)
bitter
14 October 2018
Its taste . It remains, long time after the final credits, in memory. A film about loss, so well crafted than it seems a sort of revelation of the roots and meanings and ways of life after the fall of your entire world. A film about choices and about options and about self forgiveness. And about the most profound fragility , defining yourself. A character of film seems be the lead pillar - Rodrigo . More precise, his words to Bobby who is not an encouragement but a sort of recipe to assume your present challenges. Short, a magnificent short film.

impressive
14 October 2018
For the condesed story . For the impecable performances. For atmosphere. And for the translation on images of the tension, sarcasmus, vulnerability and the last word of CEO. A film more than moving because it is the inspired picture about appearences and reality, refuges, the other as object, the need to escape from yourself and the option defining yourself in fundamental manner. A profound usefull film. For suggest the right questions about yourself.

a salad
14 October 2018
...not so awfull. Only a nice mix of classic novel, sketch of horror and comedy.The lead virtue - the cast. The great sin - it is far to be more than a naive game. But it could be a good invitation to read the novel for zoung public who represents its basic target. And that is the start point for admire it . As an easy adaptation, feminist manifesto and, not the last, nice comedy.

a desire
13 October 2018
A blue bird. A boy and his cat. A strong desire of little man . Experiments, falls and the glory price. And something who could be defined as a too bitter end. One of animations proposing well known things. And few gifts - the hair of boy is one of the most weird. A film not real conventional for an animation. But nice, biyarre and a working one. With the specific humor, using, in smart manner, the Icarus legend..

Snack Attack (2012)
beautiful
13 October 2018
The story is familiar. But it works in splendid manner. For each detail of animation. For the predactibility or for humor. For the end. And for explanation. An old lady. A teenager. Four cookies. And a train station. Enough for a real, real beautiful short animation.

The Number 23 (2007)
Jim Carrey
13 October 2018
Obvious, he is a great actor. This film is a good proof. Not only for inspired portrait of a victim of paranoia but for the art to give coherence to a plot not always convincing. A thriller like many others. Remembering the talent of Joel Schumacher but not being more than a remember. Because the work of Jim Carrey seems not only giving the realistic image of a man becoming piece of a book , but the need to impress of story did not works in many scenes.

expectations
13 October 2018
A man. His family in vacation. The fun of an alone guy. Including that sort of movie. A short film seductive for the lovely humor. For the expectations of lead character and viewer. And for the smart end. Not great but amusing. And giving a nice version of romance.
