Reconciliated with Lanthimos. Weird and beauty women fight with no limits. Emma wins? I prfer Rachel rescilience with her scar and her wit and ellegance. The queen is not just comic and satirized, is moving.

A very good movie

This movie turned out to be a great start of this new year for our film club. Indeed, usually, I'm not a huge fan of costume-dramas but since this movie had received some great reviews, I thought it would be a rather safe choice. Well, it didn't disappoint and I would go as far as saying that it is one of the best movies I have seen in this genre. First of all, Yorgos Lanthimos delivered here a go... read more

The Favourite

Yorgos Lanthimos is one hell of an idiosyncratic auteur. Not just in his use of fishbowl lenses, or the darkly humorous conceits, or the generally corrosive aura that permeates every scene, but in his overall choices of unconventional, occasionally incoherent material. The Favourite keeps up his streak of oddball cinema by turning his weird eye towards the usually staid costume drama.   The Fav... read more

"I appreciate the genre bend and I was impressed by the acting. The story was barely there. The ending was sudden and strange... I think the director, Lanthimos, has a unique eye and messed-up sense of humor, which I'm all for; but this was not his most successful. Knowing this it's strange this was the one that got the Academy's attention."

Well, it didn't disappoint and I would go as far as saying that it is one of the best movies I have seen in this genre. First of all, Yorgos Lanthimos delivered here a gorgeous movie shot on location with natural lights.

"29.9. Lanthimos on nokkela ja hauska, ja onhan The Favourite oikein mallikas filmi. Tunteita olisi voinut kääntää toki isommalle, mutta toisaalta Olivia Colmanin kuningatarhahmo on juuri niin järkkymätön, ettei tahdo antaa tilaa liialliselle tunteilulle elämässään. Mielenkiintoista visuaalista leikittelyä kaiken hienon juonittelun lomassa. Pääosakolmikko on erinomainen."
