Tout le récit tourne autour du combat qu'un être englué mène pour se fabriquer une vie radicalement différente sur la terre de ses ancêtres. Assez bien vu, mais pas assez saillant pour que ma mémoire en garde le souvenir. En fait, j'avais déjà vu le film, et ce n'est qu'à la quarantième minute que je m'en suis aperçue. Même la beauté surnaturelle d'Adèle est passée à la trappe, et pourtant...
Gets an extra star for the outside shots being done in my neighborhood. I can place the shots to the meter in the first 3 minutes and I can nearly see my place. The rest of the film is about taking a decision as to what to do next, which is highly relevant to my current situation.
Well I really rather liked this movie, an interesting subject about which I knew very little. Outstanding performances, cinematography and a great soundtrack. It's worth seeing just for the beautiful cafe scene where Jeanne diagrams the state of their relationship on a napkin.
I really enjoyed watching this. There is no splendid plot twists, but lots of ordinary life of a adults in Paris. The main character is the type of a person who has this natural shield around himself - you never know what he really thinks. Due to this, contact with him is always a bit more difficult than with others.
We observe a young Parisien man struggling with his fractured family, his drug-dealing existence, a volatile love life and his Jewish heritage. Jerusalem represents an escape as he gathers up the funds and documentation to make the pilgrimage and he ensures it is a one-way trip despite the appearance in his life of a lady who offers the stability he requires. Rodrigo's Sugarman is an appropriate tune.
A beautiful film, a moment in the story of a man who seeks a sense to his life, which until now seems to only have been attached to toxic people, lost loves, or non-exiting ones (his father). It's funny that so many people did not like the end, I actually find on the contrary that this is a surprising ending, leaving a strange feeling.. fortunately that it is not a classic love story.
I think this one deserves some praise for the beautiful cinematography. The colors, the use of light, the angles... they're all a beautiful sight. As for the storyline, it isn't amazing, but together with the visual it makes you follow through the whole movie. So I'd recommend the movie, anyhow, for the great photography, even though I recognize that the ending can be disappointing for a lotta people.
