charming
18 June 2021
A nice, amusing adaptation of the book of Daniel Dafoe. Seductive for humor, drawings, twists and something easy to understand if you do not ignore the context of its apparences. Source of nice memories from childhood, short, just an interesting trip , smart and surprising, in some measure, across the text of classic novel.

few good points
18 June 2021
The basic virtue is the fair way to present the connection father - son. A man returning to Earth for discover the source of the lost contact between mother planet and.interstellar colony. His son studying in sort of high school. And the message of father, knowing be very close by his death, to the son. Near that, a cat in records store and an old house explored by the astronaut.

Out (II) (2020)
nice
18 June 2021
Maybe, not very convincing. But amusing and real sweet. Beautiful drawings, soft story, not so surprising end, a fist of cliches and a bit of propaganda. But just nice because it has the gift to use , in smart - gentle way, cliches , crumbs of ordinary stories from near reality, few good spoons of humor and create the fair atmosphere. And whole of that can be real useful in some occasions, in few moments not very happy.

decent
18 June 2021
The first temptation is to be critic about this film . But the good ponts are obvious. The flashbacks, the clash between birth and crucifixion, the stories of cure and forgiveness and resurrection, the blue eye and the not so bad special effects are more than expressions of good intentions but ingredients for a decent film about The Savior. The target is precise and this film is far to be one directed by Franco Zeffirelli , Martin Scorsese or Mel Gibson but a reasonable expression of faith.

Black (2019 TV Movie)
a very busy day
18 June 2021
A man in his relaxing day off. And the pieces of huge pressure, from the demand of girlfriend, to the visit of his friends and his ex, from the video show of the love of his life to her cold revenge and nose bleeding in some moments. One of the good points - the painting reproductions.

Zéro M2 (2015)
a studio
18 June 2021
A student from Lyon in Paris , moving walls, a landlady and her ambiguous rent contract , a pigeon and a smart solution against noises of night and the problems of neigbours. The social message is obvious and the result is just a charming short comedy.

lovely
18 June 2021
A little girl in library. A book, a confusion and high negociations with a ... Dendalion. And the good result. A single father considering the pizza as best food for his daughter and their friends. And a last gift for His little Royal Majesty. A charming short film exploring the universe of childhood and reflecting , in precise - ingenuous way, a so often aspect of near reality. Sure, it gives a more seductive image of Evil. But this can be not just a big sin , only a small detail, part of so present political correctness.

Signes de vie (2004)
wise crafted
18 June 2021
I was fascinated by the way to send a delicate, in all senses , powerful message. About love, lost, death profound grief, desire. It is a splendid lesso of acceptance and the dance becomes so significant than you ignore be only an animation. A beautiful short film, seductive for deliate flavors and for a sort of gentle way to remin the pieces of past to the viewr. Short, just a wise crafted animation.

Dispel (2019)
beautiful
17 June 2021
A splendid stoy of love and sacrifice of a girl for her mother. The effort to save her, using the lessons from a popular TV series reminds old fairy tales and admirable feelings. So, a short film to remind old , small , essential truths.

Lizzie Borden Took an Ax (2014 TV Movie)
Christina Ricci. and it is enough.
17 June 2021
This new version of the story of Lizzie Borden seems only the gift for Christina Ricci. She needs to do nothing for convince and it is obvious than she is the main motif for see the film. A simple story, nice performances, an useful Gothic flavor. And it is enough for decent TV film.

so familiar situations...
17 June 2021
The fair term to define it is ...creepy. Because it gives a too realistic perspective about ordinary, every day habits . So, it is just powerful , because the absurde situations, the bizarre relations, the addiction by technology are so familiar than the smile is not the fair reaction. A short film reminding the high need to live out of technology. Smart, ironic and, in some measure, high cruel.

On Strike for Christmas (2010 TV Movie)
family
17 June 2021
More than a Christmas film, it is a very nice family film. Surprising in some measure because the roots of strike are so present in near reality life than the mix of irony and conflicts, hilarious situations and the attittude of ladies are more than realistic or familiar but just fair. It can be perceived as feminist manifesto with Hallmark end and the work of Julia Duffy is just precious. Short, family and the connections defining it so well.

crumbs
17 June 2021
It is tempting to be very critic about this film. Yes, many motives, a lot of mistakes,awful dialogue, not small expectations, wooden acting - the supporting actors as a sort of some spice - and a story not very inspired driven and, more important, the feel about nudity as axis saving the film. But the good intentions are obvious, the story works , in some measure, for a time, as crumbs, the naivety can be, first, terrible but it sounds reasonable to end, the plot is not bad but wrong used and a better chemistry between lead actors could be a good detail. But, short, not so bad.

fascination story
16 June 2021
A simple, touching, precise and gentle, in same measure portrait of fascination of a ten years old boy for the father of one of friends. Summer, near the sea. A camping. A stolen swimming trunks, dreams and something very ambiguous at early age, a mix of love, fascination, attraction, mistery, image of perfect father and need to escape. Nice, admirable crafted and charming.

admirable
16 June 2021
It is not very easy to say why you love it. The most simple definition - it is a living short film. You feel it, you know the situations, the dialogue sounds very familiar. Short, an admirable film reminding ordinary sides of relations, authentical dialogues and having a great - great end.

eulogy to love
15 June 2021
One of the most beautiful, touching, convincing eulogy of love. And the perfect manner of Gary Barlow to remind small, ordinaries, insignificant aspects of life beauty and joy and freedom and round, full happiness.

correct
15 June 2021
A song of love, reminding many others. Reflection of significant life moment turn. Correct crafted, giving to Shayne Ward the oportunity to propose the nuances of his voice, to us to remember his start in career, the old fashion sound being the main virtue. So, nice, correct and fair portrait of a second chance.

touching
15 June 2021
A minimalistic story, a delicate subject and, the best part, Tchaikovsky. A beautiful film about love, connections, seduction and acceptance. Simple and precise, melancholical and honest. Maybe, the use of ambiguity is not the best good point.

Shooting star (2015)
10/10
admirable
15 June 2021
A realistic portrait of motherhood. Touching, impeccable crafted, impressive for each detail, reminding Dekalog by Kieslowski. A young man, behind the weel in a car accident. And the ball of reactions of his mum. An admirable short film about sacrifice.

Boléro (2019)
slice of dictatorship
15 June 2021
Future dictatorship using telepaths as tools for regime politic. A man is one of victims. His girl prepaires the revenge. For many reasons, a beautiful film for a real large target, from the Sci Fi public to the the fight fans or admirers of Bolero by Maurice Ravel. An energetic story, admirable job.

story of revenge
15 June 2021
First, great occasion for Giuliano Gemma to explore a character generous in nuances. Second, wise use of the theme of return from war and discover a profound different reality. Not the last, the theme of paternity and Penelope are smart defined. A film about order, revenge and justice. And, sure, about love, in few seductive aspects well played by Monica Sugranes and Nieves Navarro.

Talk Radio (2020)
about marriage
15 June 2021
Ironic perspective about marriage. But precise, simple, convincing, amusing in dramatic nuances, maybe useful. A radio show. The attention of a woman to the dialogue. A mug, a name and a conclusion after all the details. Feel of guilty and a not reasonable question determining the lady to a not delicate reaction. Result - one of seductive films about secrets, acceptance, frustrations and the egffect of radio shows.

Chahut (2005)
Ensor - like images
14 June 2021
Admirable clash between a poetic story and artistic details, reminding Ensor. A portrait of loneliness after carnaval, about masks and need to live the yesterday event, the atmosphere of end of world transformed, in fair way, by colors, a story about empty town and hope to meet somebody, a rain of fishes , a statue and the final option. The colors are so great than the story itself can be only a frame or pretext. . Result, few drops of Commedia de l Arte and some memories about Venice after masks.
