YG's now-familiar project (albeit here without the usual fantastical embellishments) of reflecting my youth culture back at me. The identity in whose outline I filled in my world but whose lines and meanings have blurred over time. He remembers me the way I thought I would, and the way I sometimes need to. Nostalgia as tether, context, proof... as defence against loneliness. As promised. Stylish. empathetic & tender.
20 ans ... Recherche d'absolu, d'émotions vives, de sensations fortes. Une Fureur de Vivre des années 2010 ... sans fureur ... et sans futur. ==== Being 20 in the night somewhere in France ... Search for absolute, lively emotions, thrills. Rebels Without a Cause of the years 2010 ... without a cause ... and without rebellion.
Wonderful soundtrack and, at moments this a completely hypnotic movie, extremely interesting and deep. I felt a very strong connection with some scenes and, since it is a short movie, I expect this intensity to be maintained. Which, unfortunately, didn't happen. Still worth watching.
In it's most interesting and effective moments, which are also its most kinetic, it feels like punk rock from the Soviet or expressionist silent-era. The rest just feels too feebly pretentious to even be attempting anything new or interesting.
L'auteur a su rendre quelque chose du charme naïf de l'adolescence, de ses espoirs et de ses désespoirs excessifs, de sa recherche d'une paix affective, ou de son émotivité exubérante. Les scènes de danse sont très bien filmées.
