A pretty decent attempt at adapting Bolano to film that manages to capture some of his work's enigmatic vagueness, if not its depth. And why anybody thought the opening credits were a good idea is a mystery even Bolano would be afraid to contemplate.
2.5/5. It seems like two different films with different tones and approaches have been intermingled. I think, these two films should have affected each other in one way or other; yet there appears to be no real tension between these two worlds and it lessens the dramatic effect of the film as a whole.
Not half bad. She got the tone right and the understated actors were able pull off this Bolano-esque number. I was doubtful, but I liked it. Also, I have food poisoning right now which meant the soft, slow-moving unfolding of this piece was very welcomed. There is a touch of Last Tango in here too.
This was a quietly engaging and oft slow moving film with a great performance by the female lead. The intricacies of age, distance, longing, sexuality, tragedy and the dualistic nature of being human unfolds throughout, sans a feeling of awkward cliche or judgement. Pretty shots at times, with interesting composition. I appreciated this film, it felt female.
A film about a troubled teen who falls in love with an old man, that she is trying to rob. I really liked Manuela Martelli's performance but other than that the film didn't do much for me. The opening credits really threw me off, it got a bit better but never quite good. Although my main issue is with the story the cinematography didn't impress much, other than the scenes at Maciste's house which were beautiful.
