I am utterly disappointed watching this over-hyped Alfonso Cuarón's film. For me, Roma can be called a "vanity fair". I am shocked to my very core how can anyone possibly define it as an artistic or aesthetic triumph after nearly more than 120 years of cinema? Almost, each and every camera movement and angle is pretentiously senseless and irrelevant. And let's not begin talking about how futile and nonfunctional many of its scenes are, in case of storytelling and everything!
Think about one of those Ingmar Bergman's hysterical female characters as if caught in an Ozu-ian family comedy-drama, directed by Straub and Huillet occasionally paying an homage to Bresson! Then, you may get a quick glimpse of what Schanelec is doing with I Was at Home, But in her very own non-conformist refined style.
