What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Katka's Reinette Apples

    35mm. From the time when the editing cinema of Eisenstein and Vertov dominated the small period of time in which the social revolution was also an artistic revolution, this film finds itself more on the side of an actors cinema and of the composition of a realistic picture, but let's be fair: what extraordinary actors and what a righteous framing between these and the spaces of a city and its inhabitants.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Katka's Reinette Apples

    Souvent d'une grande et fine acuité psychologique, avec quelques acteurs fort imprégnés de leurs personnages et un constant humour en filigrane, une oeuvre largement bienvenue, qui rappelle les films du malicieux Boris Barnet, malgré son lourd message politique final, lorsque nos deux sympathiques protagonistes décident de rentrer à l'usine pour mener une existence plus stable et plus bénéfique.
