Summer Clouds (Nubes de Verano) Reviews

  • Mar 10, 2009

    Una historia fácil, pero que llama la atención por la manera de tocar unas teclas que a todos nos provocan. Todos hemos tenido relaciones y el poder de autodestrucción de los celos nos ha llamado a la puerta más de una vez. Nubes de verano mete el dedo en la yaga para cuestionar palabras tan debatibles como: compromiso, fidelidad, confianza... El poder de la seducción entra en escena de la forma más cruel para demostrar que en la pareja todo puede pasar... Los actores ayudan a que este interesante guión gane credibilidad; un cuarteto para recordar en dónde maravilla Natalia Millán en cada gesto. No se trata de una gran película, pero creará debate y se deja ver muy bien. Para que las fibras vibren.

    the recent spanish cinema tries to resolve its inner problems (lack of projection abroad, financial problems, drop of number of viewers...) developing its action in two main ways: the first one is macro-productions, trying to be a b-side of hollywood; the second one is little works, based on actors and scripts... summer clouds is included in that tendeny. although it's not its best representation, it's somehow interesting, capable of touching the viewer's soul. a little story of a stablished couple in their summr hollidays on northern spanish coast is involved in a perverse game played by two of the local people, interested in conquering them. the game of seduction and hidding is well developed, and tricky for the viewers... we don't know the end... till the end. beautiful places, clever games, great acting of henríquez (the husband). in summer, lazy days, suddenly grey clouds appear, far away in the sky; in a certain moment, there is a crack breaking any solid construction; after, the recover becomes impossible. maybe...

    This was really interesting... slow, but interesting. Basically these two cousins fancy this couple, so they form a pact to help each other have an affair with him/her. Throughout the movie there are long discussions about different opinions on human nature vs committed relationship, etc. In the end the director allows you to make up your own mind about the events - and based on your decision of what you think happened, it kind of tells you something about yourself, eg - does your conclusion mean you agree with the villian or the victims? Are you a cynic or a optimistic romantic? Really interesting.
