  • kartina obskura's rating of the film Julio Begins in July

    3,5 decline of a family, death, sexual awakening - all can be observed not only next to each other but through each other. unfortunately, julito´s character is mainly flat and even the striking final scene doesn´t make up for it. portraits in the house, like in dreyer´s "ordet" remind us how they are constantly reminded of their origins, duties, tradition. (and wasn´t that scene with cleaning the shotgun great :D )
