What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Tarahumaras 82 – Los Pintos

    One of those rare films that leads us to think at the time of its viewing that something new in cinema is being created before our senses. With a magnificent non-realistic soundtrack - by her husband, Régis Hébraud, with who she worked until her recent death - emerge images of a lightness almost unrealistic, levitational, implemented on beings and spaces. An inclusion in the (he)art of an imaginary ethnography.
