  • No sei o que mais surpreendente: constatar a juventude de seu diretor ou o fato de que este projeto marca sua estreia em longas metragens.

Audience Reviews for Volcano

  • Jan 02, 2014
    Nominated for the Golden Camera award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, <i>Eldfjall</i> is an ignored Icelandic jewel that tells the story of a man whose name was Isak Borg 54 years before, and Carl Fredricksen 2 years before, and has had tons of other names in a numerous amount of films beforehand, including hundreds of uninspired and flat Hollywood dramas. So why should you be interested in watching the same story of an aged man that has been distanced from his family and wants to make ammends while confronting his past? The reasons are very simple. The art of cinema relies not on the story that is being told, but on how you tell that story. Rúnar Rúnarsson understands this, and creates a humble, but powerful drama about valuing those closest to our lives, especially family, while fighting our inner demons. One of the most dangerous demons (if not the most dangerous) is the total lack of interest to keep living, not only because it consumes you, but also because the price is paid by everybody else, too. The final reason I'll provide is this: family detachment is a real issue, and also the desire to die. It is a human concern that we should never forget. Personally, it doesn't matter how many times the same story or issue is told in film or in any other media, I will always pay attention because this problem is relevant, and the way in which each person decides to confront such issues is different, and not always correct. Once the ending credits start rolling, you'll be left cold in your seat with a certain feel of powerlessness that will prevent you from getting up until the melancholic score stops. On an unrelated additional note, the film resembles the emotional impact, some dramatic elements and the imagery used by Victor Sjöstrom in his 1917 masterpiece <i>Terje Vigen (A Man There Was)</i>, a resemblance that I find particularly interesting. 87/100

    Subject very similar to Haneke's Amour. Not much to be said really. It's not as emotionally engaging as it should be.
