Critic Reviews for Suddenly
The movie, filmed in arty black and white, has some nice moments of dialogue and an offbeat, quirky rhythm that is slightly hypnotic at times.
The film has nice black-and-white photography, and attitude to spare, but finally leaves you with that unhappily familiar 'so what?' feeling.
The 26-year-old Argentine director Diego Lerman shows a sure hand in his debut, from his contrasty black-and-white compositions to his sly, jumpy edits, reminiscent of Godard.
Built on small telling gestures and well-observed moments, and periodically rocked by a spasm of everyday weirdness, Suddenly works its charms slowly but steadily.
An illustration of what happens when new blood hits old or inert cinema: Everything is rejected, or everything is embraced.
Audience Reviews for Suddenly
If you are going black and white, you should have a compelling reason to do so. Instead what we have is a boring series of vignettes of three young women who aren't telling us anything particularly important.
Two girls lure dowdy knicker seller into black and white roadtrip. An Argentinian indy film low on budget and Hollywood gloss, but high on thoughtfulness. I liked it.
Cast: Tatiana Saphir, Carla Crespo, Veronica Hassan, Beatriz Thibaudin, Maria Merlino, Marcos Ferrante, Ana María Martínez, Susana Pampin, Luis Herrera, Laura Mantel Director :Diego Lerman Summary: Two young lesbian criminals kidnap a heavy-set girl in Buenos Aires, taking her along on a road trip into the Argentinean wilderness in a hijacked taxi. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing they might live to regret. Or will they? My Thoughts: "I liked the fact it was shot in black and white. Not many director's do that, and it was beautifully done. The character's are hard to relate to or even like, but eventually you come to understand them a bit more. It's a somewhat quiet and slow moving, but it fits the flow of the film. A decent little road movie."
