The Names of Love (Le nom des gens) (2010)

 An open movie theater. A clear sky and sparrows flying around a little after sunset … A number of colourful slowly moving spots in the sky: balloons filled with hydrogen rising to their death …

It was not only the movie that was strange … “The Names of Love” is an excellent example on how one may dress sad and severe things about our life with a comedy wrapping… How the experiences of our parents forged our mentality, created our psychological wounds, which in turn master our lives. The way our goals and needs are totally diverse because of our experiences… All these things presented in an ironic, amusing style which makes one laugh at the moment to consider afterwards the severity of the issues presented.

A very good film, totally different from the rest.

My rating: 08/10

  1. Μέσα σε όλο αυτό που εύστοχα παρουσιάζεις, να προσθέσω πως για μένα η προσπάθεια του σκηνοθέτη να αγγίξει το θέμα της σνύπαρξης μέσα από τη διαφορετικότητα είναι πολύ ελπιδοφόρο μήνυμα. Πολύ σημαντικό μάλιστα σε αυτή την εποχή που διανύουμε….. δένοντας αρμονικά με το υπέροχο σκηνικό που περιγράφεις….
