I'm into fantasy, reality, vice,
El cine es un momento sagrado. Sentarse en la oscuridad frente a la pantalla es un acto de fe, es experimentar una comunicación directa con el portal de un universo paralelo por el que merodearemos solo al terminar esta vida. En el ahora, la verdadera vida se nos otorga en pequeñas dosis, al dormir y al estar frente a la pantalla, solo en dichos momentos se alcanza la perfecta comunión con el demiurgo y su peculiar creación, y se nos prepara para el sueño eterno.
To live inside a fable, where we can play with time, places and sentiments, a perfect sphere of existence that can only be reached in dreams is a pleasant thought we all cinephiles love to have. As mere mortals, or the infants we still are, we have two ways to conquer that fantasy world, we can either sleep, or we can enter and sit in a dark room, operate a machine and enjoy the ride while we are awake.
All the forms of art are affluents that flow into an infinitely vast ocean called cinema, where all other arts end...this one begins.

Scenes like the one with the three male friends at one table and the female friends in another, plotting out ways to approach the ladies to ask them out without looking like complete jerks but failing miserably; or even more important and awkward, when the young pianist Milda arrives home early morning, after partying all night, and finding the blond girl Andula sleeping in his bed, he doesn't even remember her, and his annoying mother murmuring sermons about responsability. Slices of life, mundane, unglamorous, pathetic, embarrasing, funny and tragic, like it all could turn out when you fall in love. Some of these situations will certainly shape a new concience and stronger armor in the blond's heart. She will take note of all these thinkings in a lonely corner of the noisy spot where she makes a living. A warm and sincere view to the window of a woman's soul.
Downey Jr. and Duvall are great, but that doesn't steer away the fact that this is a poorly conceived bildungsroman and courtroom drama with little to nothing original in its bones. Clichéd, sappy and preachy.
