La impresión de una guerra

Camilo Restrepo Colombia, 2015

Adam Whybray's rating of the film Impression of a War

3.5 stars. I wonder if the maneki-neko was a small respectful nod to Chris Marker. I appreciated the political engagement with colours and that such a formalist piece of essay work never lost sight of the human individual. Educational while neither hectoring or patronising. The punk music felt like a diversion chosen due to personal affection. But it would have been wrong not to include angry neccessary pleasures.
