    I absolutely love magical realism.
    This film is just what I needed to see but didn’t expect. Who would have thought that an iranian filmmaker would make such a brilliant latinamerican story... It’s so effortlessly poetic and natural, mixing magical elements with symbolism, beautiful scenery. God I love the landscapes of my country.
    Let’s never forget to remember our dead, forgetting out of guilt, forgetting out of fear, forgetting out of grief...
    ¡Qué viva la muerte! Por qué la vida es corta.

    Forget about call me by your name, or eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, or any other romances, this is it.
    Is this even a movie? I didn’t feel I was watching actors, I felt I was gazing at a real couple, everything feels as organic as the nature around them, as pure as the lakes they dipped in and as beautifully melancholic as the real deal. 


    Todo es el viento
    y el viento es aire
    siempre de viaje.

    Like a delicious dish of italian pasta in a restaurant this film is fresh, flavourful in its simplicity and ultimately satisfying; Whether Pixar will acknowledge or not the queer undertones and whether the director intended so is irrelevant, gay kids will be able to identify with it and that’s a great thing.

    ★★★½

    Ambitious and refreshing in its presentation, mesmerizing in its atmospheric and hipnosis-inducing cinematography and gripping with it's flawless attention to detail in the costume design.
    I appreciate a lot films that attempt to do something of epic scale and succeed doing so because it is so easy to fall short.
    Here we follow a mysterious and strange journey through epochs of Russian history all set in the same building from what I could understand.
    Our protagonist is unseen, behind the…

    This is a masterpiece.

    How do I start? 
    Why have I not watched asian cinema earlier?
    This movie feels epic without having any battles, set pieces or explosions. 
    It does because of its characters.
    It’s a story about relationships, and this gives it opportunity to touch on many themes such as true love, choices, honesty, death and loneliness.
    I don’t know if it is due to translation or not, but I’ve noticed how asian dramas have such beautiful dialogue; simple…

    Herzog is slowly becoming one of my favourites.
    Amazing film that so elegantly portrays this historical period and its complexities.
    I wish I can find more films about latin america during the European exploration era.
    This film depicts very well everything that we consider wrong and condemn today about Colonialism, without being clumsy or self-righteous and moralizing.
