La chambre verte

François Truffaut Perancis, 1978

Ramón Herrera's rating of the film The Green Room

I don't think I've ever felt so uncomfortable while watching a movie before, yet so warm and moved. Truffaut made a truly morbid and agonizing love letter to the past, to the incapability of accepting disappointments and looking forward. Almendros' photography is gorgeous as usual and, along Jaubert's incredible music, it creates a beautiful and gloomy atmosphere that won't leave anyone unshaken.
