Very touching and moving, Tempête is about a fisherman who has to make a choice between his life on the sea and his life with his family. Samuel Collardey, the director, choose to follow the life of real people for this movie, with non-professional actors. Mixing fiction and documentary, this little slice of life was full of sincerity. I liked it a lot. What I enjoyed the most was that it was about the actual life of the actors. The main actor (Dom) is really a fisherman !! How cool is that.
i never get tired of wong kar wai's aesthetics in his movies.. in this one, it was the color green that was present throughout the whole thing and i loved it. the shots on the forest, the flat with green walls, even the dresses of the women had some green in it, and i don't know if it's just me seeing things but really, the way he uses colors and lights in his movies makes me feel some kind of…
I have the feeling that this movie just changed my life.The way it was filmed, the colors, the aesthetic, the music, the story, the meaning behind it... everything was an experience in itself. I'm too shook to write an actual review, but I know I'll be thinking about this film for a long, long time.
