  1. Diderot's rating of the film La sapienza

    A mysterious film that maintains a strange hold on one's attention and an odd tonal style that I would describe as Ozu meets Resnais meets Green. Is he as good as either of them? I'm not sure yet, but he's different.

  2. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film La sapienza

  3. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film La sapienza

    Green sigue siendo fiel a sus personajes que están en plena búsqueda de identidad, necesidad que se eleva a lo existencial. Para esto recurre al juego dialéctico y la prosa académica, normativas que no hacen más que desplegar la sabiduría. La "sabiduría" ha sido siempre una palabra sobreentendida en las películas de Green. En este filme, de igual forma, la sabiduría es histórica y funciona para el presente.

  4. Rohith Varma's rating of the film La sapienza

  5. Cartaphilus's rating of the film La sapienza

    Of Amazing beauty but it fails to echo Bresson as Green probably wanted to.

  6. Valentin Alexandru's rating of the film La sapienza

    "The source of beauty is love and the source of knowledge is light, going back to the sources is sapienza."

  7. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film La sapienza

    Risky, complex, and perhaps too much articulated in its dialogues, “La Sapienza” is formal in the methodology and yet liberal in the message. (3.5 stars)

  8. Sara Castro's rating of the film La sapienza

    Were the actors instructed to act like robots?

  9. Matt Richards's rating of the film La sapienza

    Incredible lighting and a beautiful palette! Deliberately stilted performances that feel like the introspective cousin to the Greek Weird movement make this a curious and mesmerisingly meditative watch. 3 stars

  10. Jason's rating of the film La sapienza

    Eugène Green: one of the best things going in contemporary cinema. He has practically re-invented shot reverse shot for Western cinema. The deadened affect of his actors makes the profundity of their words, gestures, and situations all the more graceful, whilst also removing any traces of self-seriousness. His movies remind me more of Mark Rappaport's fiction films than Bresson. And we needed a movie about sapience.

  11. Violins By Night's rating of the film La sapienza

    Wow! Meditative, but no less gripping. I've never seen a film quite like it before. 4.5

  12. rian's rating of the film La sapienza

    Eugene's answer to contemporary cultures

  13. kartina obskura's rating of the film La sapienza

    (what would tables, cups and glasses do if there wasn´t eugene green to film them all over) and he brought the light to celluloid space, once again. presence felt, once again.

  14. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film La sapienza

    I love the fact that Green choose androids over humans for his new film.

  15. José Neves's rating of the film La sapienza

    "Indie" cinema # 14: from the life of imitations. A reasonable imitator, not always interesting, of the idiosyncratic European cinema - Bresson,Oliveira - Green, a fairly pretentious American, overcome its obvious copyists limitations by a romanesque integration of European art in his usual descriptive system, surpassing the Renaissance masterclass by a wise writing of panoramics, light and sound.

  16. João Biscaia's rating of the film La sapienza

    When gestures are made of stone, monuments turn to flesh. And it that flesh burns the light of clairvoyance, like a photogram in marble.

  17. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film La sapienza

    A juxtaposition of contraries and dualities. An exquisite meditation on the search and rediscovery of a meaningful existence in all aspects of our lives. An absolute pleasure.

  18. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film La sapienza

  19. F.Bieberkopf's rating of the film La sapienza

    Absolutely wonderful. Reminded me of Oliveira.

  20. msmichel's rating of the film La sapienza

    FNC '14 Green follows up 'The Portuguese Nun' with this breathtaking film looking at passion and light in all things especially architecture and love. A passionless couple take a trip to Italy and in meeting a young man and his sister open themselves to rediscovering their passion for life. Beautifully made with a certain sterility that works in its favour. Green's film aches for preservation of art and passion.
