Intimate Lighting (Intimni osvetleni) Reviews
January 12, 2011
This movie may be the most powerful "feel-good" movie I have
ever seen. It is so understated that it doesn't feel at all
manipulative. (I am unfortunately much too sensitive to manipulation.)
It's in B&W, with one beautiful scene after another, yet seeming
so natural, almost accidental. There's no sex & violence, no nudity
and no guns. There's hardly even a plot. Yet I, the most restless of
moviegoers, never once thought of leaving, and I wished it would have
continued longer. The audience was rapt, and rashes of laughter were
common, especially as the movie went along. Situations developed,
that were perfectly reasonable yet somehow hopelessly silly.
Intimate Lighting showed together with a Passer short: "A Boring Afternoon" or some title like that. It had a very similar feel. It was nothing more than old men in a bar, talking the sports of their youth and trashing the current generation. But it was captivating from start to finish.
