I trace it all back to then
Her, and the snow, and the Seine
Saw this a few weeks ago, but didn't even know what to write. Not because it was bad —because it wasn't— but maybe because it wasn't amazingly good enough either.
All I know is this: Toni Collette really stole every scene she was in. Wish we could've had more Kathleen screen time. Same with Colin Firth, not because he didn't have enough screen time, but because how awesome he was. In fact, the whole cast was nice, and the story…
Not bad, at all. Still, something missed for the film to be truly interesting.
It was entertaining at times, and well-paced, which kept the film from being boring, along with excellent and convincing performances. I liked the beautiful score and the appropriately adapted screenplay. However, again, despite being a good movie, it's far from the best.
Wondering what a Colombian thinks about the accuracy of the culture and style of Encanto? Let me tell you.
While many say that the story could be set anywhere else, Colombia is the perfect place for Encanto. Our country had the longest armed conflict in history, which left thousands of families displaced because of illegal groups, such as the guerrillas. Encanto arises from this internal migration, and from the struggle to survive in a territory that was bathed in blood…
The Silence of the Lambs filled my expectations. The beauty of this film, among many other things, falls on the naturalness of Jodie Foster and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Their performances don't need melancholy scenes where they demonstrate a thousand emotions to win an Oscar. On the contrary, subtle looks and smart dialogues are enough so that the characters protrude and remain icons for the history of cinema. Excellent in every way.
