JAUJA – mythological road-movie

2015-02-06 // 0 Comments

JAUJA *) takes us on a trip through cinema history (it adopts the classical format 4:3 with as much as rounded corners), through brutal colonialism (it places Patagonian indigens against European conquerors) and through mythology. It does pay off to bear with the films slow pace and the uncomfortable feeling that something is amiss – director Lisandro Alonso does [...]

CEREMONIN – THE CEREMONY – LA CÈRÈMONIE review

2015-02-05 // 0 Comments

LA CÈRÈMONIE is a superb work of art depicting sadomasochism as an “infant God’s sacred play” of submission and dominance between consenting, elegant and well-read adults. Those people do have their own definitions of love and sin, yet: “It’s all very complicated” as Beverly Charpentier puts it at a certain point. Well, the human condition is, in general [...]

IN YOUR ARMS – I DINE HÆNDER is about a terminally ill young man from Denmark, Niels (Peter Plaugborg), who seeks euthanasia in Switzerland. He needs somebody to [...]

CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA review

2015-01-04 // 0 Comments

The CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA are a serpent made of nothing but damp air – a meteorological phenomenon mirroring both the magic and the inescapable consequences of things we see creeping up on us. Like the chance of a lifetime, like age, love, envy or a craving for death. All of them very apt themes [...]
