What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film The Return of Maxim

    35mm. The duo of filmmakers in full Stalin era couldn't affirm their formalism and, as such, adapted their language to a vehicle of direct legibility, without ambiguity and misrepresentation. Yet, far from reaching the aesthetic levels of the previous film, they still reveal their immense capacity in the moments of confrontations and manifestations: there, by the shadow of emotion, they raise their mise-en-scène.
