What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film The Friends

    " A beautiful austere film that returns us to the intimacy of a cinema outside the ordinary rules of provability"- that's what i wrote about "Un Enfant dans la Foule" and i say exactly the same thing about this extraordinary example of a film in "sotto voce", made of ellipses and suggestions, concrete matter of a look that is built both in thought as representation. A disengaged lassitude before the world's bounds.
