Brazilian cinephile living in Berlin, a lover of the Seventh Art and every type of films: from cult to mainstream, films d'auteur to blockbusters, art house to B movies, animations to documentaries, short films to miniseries.
A riveting and hard-hitting account of brave resistance and victory in a historical fight of universal significance, and it relies on a splendid performance by David Oyelowo and powerful dialogue to bring us this inspiring true story that still feels alive and important today.
A nearly unbearable musical that believes that a bloated, unfocused mishmash of several fairy tales is enough to be interesting, but it only manages to be a torture for the ears with irritating songs and voices besides poor character development, plot holes and no sense of pacing.
With one of the most beautiful scores of the year, this is a powerful and deeply melancholic anti-war story that uses a long-unresolved conflict to show us how two good, three-dimensional men could have been friends in other circumstances hadn't they been caught in opposite sides of a war.
That the title of the original folktale places its importance on the bamboo cutter is symptomatic of those ungrateful times for women like our tragic heroine, and this is a gorgeous-looking, sad story whose only flaw is a frustrating suggestion that its most beautiful scene could be a dream.
The plot is overlong, extremely intricate - convoluted would be the exact word - and has too many characters in it, but still this trippy private eye crime-comedy compensates for its flaws with a delicious, groovy '70s vibe, a great soundtrack and a hilarious dopehead humor.
