    What Happened to Monday

    ★★★★★

    This movie was surprisingly good. I'm not going to give any details because I would spoil it, but it's a thriller in a dystopian future. The premise doesn't sound exactly new, but I was amazed by the performance of the main actress, Noomi Rapace.

    Quite interesting mixture of police movies + fantasy world. And the main antagonist is the same actress from the movie "What happened to Monday", which it's another amazing movie :)

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★★

    Quite a beautiful story. It feels reals, without exaggerations. Not so happy about the ending, but it did feel real at least. I found it a bit annoying that all the characters (except for a couple of random old ladies) smoke and that they smoke in almost every scene (except sex scenes, I think). I get it, it's the 80s, and it's Italy... still, I found it a bit excessive.
    I like how the characters switch between English, French, and Italian. There's also some German at some point. I thought it was pretty cool.

    It's beautiful to see how a hard shell can start breaking, letting precious feeling leak through bit by bit.
    My only problem with this movie was that I couldn't understand that Yorkshire accent. The Romanian was 100% clear, and the grandmother was OKeish, but father and son... perhaps just 60%. Luckily, they don't talk that much. Please focus on the expressions of all the characters. For instance, the father looks angry most of the time, so when he isn't, you feel you can see through him.
    Anyway, go and see the movie!
