    A Man Escaped

    ★★★½

    Brilliant in its form, forgetful in its story. If you don't put the story in the context of the war, you would never accept to empathise with a murder escaping prison. This is a good movie that faded with time.
    Bresson is a master of film technique, but in this specific film, it was not enough.

  • Witness for the Prosecution

    Witness for the Prosecution

    ★★★★

    Really great, surprisingly standing very well the test of time. Wilder does a remarkable job with an idea by Agatha Christie.

    Father and Daughter

    ★★★★★

    An absolute gem from the world of short animation. Belongs to my all time Top 3. Touches your heart, lasting longer than most movie features.

  • Satantango

    Satantango

    ★★★★★

    Mesmerising black-and-white cinematography, hypnotic rhythm made of ultra-long shots moving in slow zooms and pans, all enveloped by an ominous music and constant rain. “Satantango” is an eerily artefact, that moves our inner feelings, even when you don't fully comprehend what’s going on in the screen.
    Throughout seven hours we’re invited to enter a place in a specific time (1980’s) and geography (Hungary), but that seems more like a parallel and impossible world dimension.
    If you accept to dance the tango, you’ll not be able to give up.
