I was very touched by this movie. Incredibly engaged. For any other movie like this I would have a hard time giving just three stars. Movies often have astethics that I like or astetchics that I don't like, but this one had both and managed to make me like both. Perhaps it is the underlying sincerity (it's sentimentallity was more of a tenderness rather than kitchy or cheesiness) that made it all work.
Fantastic film, I was completely pulled in from beginning to end. The Cinematography was flawless, and resembled that of spaghetti western (The higher budgeted ones). It portrays a wonderful insight on South American culture that I have never seen. At times it resembles films like El Topo, Figures in a Landscape, and Dead Man, but it keeps its' own special atmosphere that both categorizes it without gentrifying it.
What an amazing experience. Impeccable performances. Stunning cinematography - shot after shot of jaw dropping beauty. And the faces! I've not seen such wonderful faces since Sergio Leone. Plus who knew accordion death matches could be so much fun? This is the film movies want to be when they grow up.
Perhaps a bit too restrained, but it's restraint also conjures much of its potency. The main characters remain just out of reach, but to the right degree, which is where we want them. The gorgeous landscapes and cinematography lay the groundwork for so much of the film's character, which unravels more as myth than narrative.
Desde un inicio "Los viajes del viento" parece tener carencias para crear la historia. Así como si nada, dos personajes deciden ser compañeros de un viaje. Diría que va por una road movie, sin embargo sus protagonistas experimentan mas no maduran o aprenden, personalmente hablando. Su momento a rescatar: un enfrentamiento que recuerda a las antiguas rancheras mexicanas.
A beautiful movie from Columbia that traces the life of an accordion player Ignacio Carrillo and his infamous accordion which is said to have been owned by the devil himself. The movie revolves around Ignacio taking a vow to never play again after his wife’s death and takes a long journey to return the accordion to his master accompanied by a teenager Fermin Moralles who follows him through out the journey.
Beautiful. Granted. Rap battles ala Accordion. Incredible. But. But. I fast-forwarded through the last half hour because there was no substance behind any of the images I was seeing. The protagonist could have been a model for how much you knew about him. I guess put it on in the background at a party.
Una mirada hacia la frustración, enmarcada en personajes solitarios que cargan con su estado. Esto, desde los ojos de su autor, expresandose no sólo con su guión, principalmente con su imagen y su sonido, como el mejor cine. Desde mi opinión, es la mejor película colombiana de todos los tiempos.
