The Consequences of Love
Titta di Girolamo has been living in a small hotel in Lugano for ten years, he leads a dull and rigid live and has apparently lost his capability to feel human emotion. This all changes when he decides to talk to Sofia, the Barmaid.
This is only my second film of Paolo Sorrentino and I can say that I am a fan. After watching the amazing La Grande Bellezza that came out last year I wanted to explore of is filmography. Just by the opening scene, I knew that I was going to love this film.
I think the word that best suits this film is perfect. The thing that I admire more in a film is when it has the ability to enchant you until the very last minute, that happened with me. I can say that this film is a true masterpiece.
Le Conseguenze Dell'Amore cinematography is amazing, shot in a beautiful way, very stylish with an elegant edition. The haunting soundtrack…
There’s all kinds of stuff in The Consequences Of Love that I don’t know how to talk about.
There are bits with cameras moving about places and doing things and stuff that seems really great, and there’s editing and that kind of jive that looks really cool. But I don’t know how to talk about that kind of thing and I’m often envious of people who can. They can see the kind of thing I’m on about here, know what the director or cinematographer or editor has done, and appreciate that fully because they fully understand the processes they went through to achieve that. Whereas I don’t.
This is one of the rare occasions where a film does something like…
Gorgeous, beautiful cinematography with a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack. Titta di Girolamo, the protagonist, is the personification of the film itself. Awkward, unsettled, and not entirely sure who he is, he inhabits a number of roles uncomfortably, without ever fitting into any of them. So moving, and melancholic.
I must say i was rather disappointed by consequences of love but I think it was because I was expecting something completely different. I was expecting to experience the emotions and revelations I experienced during Great beauty which I guess was unfair because consequences of love doesnt even try to reach as far as Sorrentino's latest effort. I was expecting something life altering and it never came, but the more I think on it the more my estimations grow because in the simple story there are definitely many layers to explore and I think that went right over my head this time round. i can usually feel when I didnt get the the most out of a film on first…
Wow. What a movie.
Merging tremendous camerawork with great direction, an intriguing slow burn character drama, some musings about life and a terrific Toni Servillo. I loved this a lot.
Exquisite shots, great music, just brilliant. The revelations are subtle, the emotions palpable.
The Dark Beauty
Sorrentino gives the feeling of a missed day of happiness where staying at home was a wrong choice
Visually I can understand why some give this a very high rating. Unfortunately I find many Italian films that prioritise style over substance to be quite tough to stay focused on. After 20 minutes I was just about ready to simply stop watching this (something I very rarely actually do). It was the cinematic experience of watching paint dry. Beautiful paint, but paint nevertheless. I am glad I stuck with it (tho I had to take a break to prevent falling asleep in the middle), but I doubt I will be looking at more of this director's films any time soon.
a slow-burner for sure, but with the iconic themes of self-reflection that sorrentino has come to be known for.
One of the best screenplays in the 21st century , well directed , well acted , everything about this movie is excellent , and i will watch it again in the next few days .
Stylistically interesting, but the problem with a lonely, introverted, emotionless character is that you never fully empathise with them. And what were the motives of the barmaid?
Sorrentino really is the master of glossy, lonely, 2003-ish, glass façade, rental car check-in counter vibes. Everything in this film smells like magic tree air freshener and hotel orange juice and sadness.
I've already told it, but I must tell it again: Paolo Sorrentino is one of the best director if it comes to telling about life. The Consequences of Love starts softly, ends brutally and in the between there is everything. Every words, sights or even silences can generate a fascinating thought in your head, which are perfectly fill the lane untill the story unwraps.
But Sorrentino movies are not just Sorrentino movies. They are also Luca Bigazzi and Toni Servillo movies and this one here is shows why. The camera work and the photographic side of the film is simply phenomenal. If there would be nothing but these, it would be still amazing.
Luckily, there is much more than the…
The movie was so good.Shot in a very stylish way,Servillo’s incredible performance-all subtle expressions and body language.The most highlight was hearing Mogwai&Boards of canada<3
