Life of Pi (2012)

What makes a film special? Amazing scenes of beauty? A script that makes one feel complete? One that addresses its inner questions and wonders? Acting that keeps the spectator pinned down on the story told? The story on top of the obvious story? The hope conveyed despite the ugliness that surrounds us and some times presses on us really hard?

May be all of it 🙂 The “Life of Pi” has it all..

My rating: 08/10

PS. One of the most heartbreaking parts of the movie is the one of the separation of Pi with Charlie Parker. What really hurts there, could not be described better.

Rust and Bone (De Rouille et d’os) (2012)

“Rust and Bone” belongs to the  kind of movies that leaves you speechless…Realistic to the bone, with cruelty and humanity walking hand in hand, saying only what is needed, to the degree that is needed: The loss of what we take for granted, the shock we face when people around us think in an entirely different way than we do, how shortsightedness may lead to tragedies…An ocean of feelings.
