Very emotional & lead by a brilliant trio of actors. I had a difficult time getting into it but some moments are stunning, especially the reunion on the beach which feels just right. Some plans are a bit cliché (long shots of surroundings, flowers, fields...) but the film is very neat & aesthetically pleasing. Carey Mulligan is amazing, & her relationship with the two other characters are moving.

Caught it on tv half-way through the story. I usually discard a movie in those situations but the actors and the dialogues caught my attention and the rest of the movie was great. Beautiful shots and sad story. The sequence on the beach with the fireworks is stunning.

Atonement (2007)
01.18.11 - rewatch

The adaptation is well executed and the screenplay reflects the book with accuracy. It's interesting to see the changes that have been made to fit the sets or to make the story easier to understand. The three stages of Briony's age in the book are really different in the ways she is described whereas the movie shows better how what she's been through doesn't change her all that much and gives some cohesion to her character. The actors are amazing, especially James McAvoy & Saoirse Ronan and the shots are beautiful.

Four Times (2010)
Beautiful shots but too long. The story is mute for most of it, it doesn't really tell a story except the basic story of life in a lost village in Italy. The beautiful landscapes keep you interested but the lack of action (beyond the basic day to day life of the people) makes the movie hard to hold on to. Some scenes are funny but the repetitions are exhausting. Nonetheless it's an interesting tale about a way of life that is disappearing.

Another Year (2010)
So moving. I think people react very differently to this movie because it's very personal. But even though it shows the story of a group of very different people, from a different country, from a different age, it still reflects brilliantly our modern life. I was really moved, from beginning to end, even though the characters are around their 60s and that is what makes this movie so incredible and well executed. It moved me to tears and I think I can relate to this movie and its characters more than any movie about people of my age. The cinematography is neat and the shots are very pretty. It doesn't seem too long and I think it was the right length. One of my favourites so far.

The editing could have been better, as the whole story of the couple rests on their meeting and how they became a family. The actors gave their characters some depth and have good chemistry but it's still hard to get attached to any of them. Lots of not so useful shots doesn't make it any more original than any other indie movie about the american way of life nowadays. It's stays of the edge of boring and only the attachment to the actors made me go through the whole movie. A bit disappointing.

Stunning visual, stunning trio of actors, especially the dynamic between Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush, who both are remarkable and the presence of Helena Bonham Carter who, even with a total of maybe more or less 30 minutes on screen, manages to be flawless and grand. The relationships between the characters is so well shown and so subtle, if that makes any sense. The set is gorgeous, especially Logue's office. Amazed by Rush especially and Colin Firth who keeps on proving that he's an amazing actor who's worthy of all his nominations.

Tetro (2009)
Best movie seen so far. Stunning cinematography: the way he plays with lights, mirrors and reflections is just amazing. As the story develops, the movie seems to turn into a real play, with more and more obvious theatre-like direction but it just makes it even more amazing and aesthetically beautiful. The twist is very surprising but obvious once it's been revealed. The actors are all so impressive and the whole movie is very dream-like, with the flashbacks in colour and the completely twisted and crazy story. Beautiful.

On Tour (2010)
Joachim's story isn't really interesting but the girls are amazing and just take the entire focus whenever appearing. Most of the shots are really pretty but sometimes it's just too focused on the bodies and the head is almost cut and it bothered me. The actors are amazing. A bit disappointed, I wish there had been more about the girls.

Morning Glory (2010)
Inredibly cheesy but genuinely funny and even cute. Rachel McAdams is actually quite great in the role of the crazy, frantic and babbling producer, I think it's a nice change to see her in a role quite different from what she usually does and to see that she can pull it off. Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford are great too; but the story overall doesn't exactly manage to keep you interested. The shooting/editing isn't exactly original but it's surprising and funny.

The fact that I saw it in French made it very disappointing and I fell asleep through the middle because I couldn't stand the voices.

THX 1138 (1971)
Really amazingly well done, so many beautiful shots it actually hurts. Flawless acting, impressing work on the set and the futuristic vibe, the second part of the movie is maybe a bit more interesting that the first but truly surprising and stunning movie.

Really enjoyed it, in spite of weird/cliché shots and editing and my lack of interest for Emily Blunt. I was very surprised at the story partly because I hadn't read anything about it and because it didn't seem all that crazy. It's not easy making a serious movie out of such story but it's really well done. There are some beautiful shots playing with the spaces and the sets but most of time it's just quick or useless shots/editing. The general storyline about the Bureau is really good, even though maybe not that original, I still really liked the idea. Pleasantly surprised also by both the actor, Matt Damon because he shows he's a very talented actor who can make you believe even the cheesiest love story and by Emily Blunt who I tend to dislike, who was funny and touching. The weak point could be how cheesy it can easily get but it's overall funny, original and entertaining.

Last Night (2010)
Pleasantly & surprisingly lovely. Everything is a bit cliché (love stories, fidelity, etc) but the editing is very well done and the parallels between the two stories work quite right. The actors are really good, especially for this ~kind of movie and the general idea is actually quite touching. Very pleasant surprise.

So disappointing. There is absolutely NO SUBSTANCE behind anything in this movie. Doing what Kubrick did by filming 15min of planets with classical music DOESN'T MAKE YOU KUBRICK. It's about God without claiming it really, it doesn't go through anything, whether it's the characters or the story, nothing is motivated, it's not even poetic, it's just plain dull, boring and uninteresting.
