    ★★★★

    Great feminine performances. Truly powerful stuff if you don't expect spectacularity.

    Personal Shopper

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's a beautiful film. Many may despise non-credible spiritual interventions but I see no sense in criticizing this. To me, it's credible in the universe of the film and if "souls" (one's or of other beings) can move a table, why couldn't they send an SMS?

    I love the director's work on this film. I found the long scene where she travels around and the story is driven only by the SMSs is great!

    A week after having watched Personal Shopper, I appreciate it more.

    ★★★★½

    I think the film tríes conciously to put distance between the story and the spectator, with so much self control as Jackie itself shows. In opposition to Neruda I think I "understand" the main character and the historical moment rather than to be empathetically identified with Jackie. The music makes a great contribution to the story. Of course NP is great.
    So far I have loved each Larrain film. I got more carried away by Neruda though
