"A film about people who have never any arguments and no fights and who love each other". A film about nothing, but beauty, nothing, but life.
Vincent took the words right out of my mouth, Definintly a masterpiece of Korean Cinema.
For those in Los Angeles, this four hour Masterpiece will be shown Saturday, March 19 at 2:00 pm at LACMA, followed by another great film, Straub and Huillets, "The Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach" at 7:30pm; what an intersting double-bill :)
If I ever get the chance to teach a course in film, this would definintly be one of my top selections. A must see.http://www.youtube.com/user/oneleggedwomanqueen#g/c/F434615A0514380C
A major achievment in 1970's American Cinema, a true essential film.
My second favorite Satyajit Ray film. Created with such passion and care, its no wonder why S. Ray was one of the most admired filmmakers in cinema.
Even though it is filled with some tacky scenes of sentimentality the film as a whole packs a powerful punch, which makes you care for the teacher who is against the war, and who witnesses her students growing up with the affects of war-torn Japan.
Often compared to being Rashomon-esque, Rosaura a las Diez creates such a puzzling narritive that when the pieces fall into place its nothing less than breathtaking.One witnesses such a percise and well developed structure that Soffici was able to master with such a film.
A very well constructed and engaging narrative with a perfect ending.
Probably one of the best bio-pics ever made, This beautiful story about the famous silent Chinese film star Ruan Ling Yu is presented in fantastic manner of story telling. A film that tries to recapture and reflect the life of a movie star that will never grace the screen again like she has.
One of the most ambitious films in the history of cinema.
Just loved the way Hong Sang-soo plays with the narrative without making it boring, giving new light to a simple story.
Some what a reminiscence of Alain Resnais’ “Hiroshima, Mon Amour” and “Last Year at Marienbad” (two much superior films) India Song in many ways stands on it’s own. The direction by Marguerite Duras is quite different from Resnais using more long takes, and longer scene durations it evokes a feeling of loss and sorrow, love and despair. The narrations and of screen dialogue ads a mysterious and distant element to the narration.
A remarkable film. I think this film could be compared to that of the poetic cinema of Dovzhenko.
This is a terrrible film, how anyone could give this film a good rating is beyond me.The film seemed very promising with some very nice camera work, but from the moment the housemaind enters the film it just spirals and crashes and burns.
Pure cinema! Words can not express the way I feel for thisfilm I'm just left speechless ,beautiful use of imagery,music and sound. Tarkovsky is truely one of the giants of the cinematic artist.
A great film. One my favorite films to come out from the early french new wave (and my favorite Godard).Godard is at the top of his form.Confident and in control.
It's a different experience every time I see it.Citizen Kane is what has been and what will always be, the greatest cinematic achievement in the history of cinema.
It's the french film of all french films. There is not one single false step in the entire film just perfection.Beautiful cinematography,magnificent acting, and the directing is like no other.This is the high art of cinema at it's best .A true MASTERPIECE.
This is definitely the work of a master filmmaker.Ozu handles his subject so gently and full of emotion that it buries deep in to our souls and warms our hearts and in the end of it we reflect on our own emotions of trying to finally let go.
One of Woody Allen's best films.A very smart and well made comedy with some beautiful black and white cinematagraphy of NYC done by the great Gordon Willis.A great story about love ,loss,wanting,regrets done by one of the most talented writer/ directors of our time.A great movie.
The direction is flawless , amazing to look at. I would really want to see this one on a 70mm print. From the previous Tati films I've seen (M. Hulot's Holiday and Mon Oncle) this one tested my patience the most but by the end it was truly a unique experience.
A reflection of thoughts, emotions ,nostalgia set to some of the most beautiful photographed images that I've ever seen in a film. A truly mesmerizing and poetic film.
poetry in images a really fascinating film filled with uplifting moments, a real gem :)
this is a celebration of cinema by a truly passionate film director. A masterpiece!
