Life in a Day (2011)

 What kind of film is “Life in a Day”? It is one of the few times the “story” of the film is not so well defined in imdb, but in wikipedia.

So, after you’ve read what is all about, now you know there is no plot! It is the day of 24th July 2010 as lived by different people, as the day progresses from morning to night. Different human moments, views, opinions, aspects, feelings, interactions to a set of a questions (what do you love? What do you fear? etc.).

Have you ever wondered how “representative” is the life you are driving? How different is it in different places of the planet? How other people feel about their life, their feelings, their companions, their children, nations, politics, what is important for them and what is not?

So, there are in this film like one hundred directors (or more), a montage which is a feast, an outcome which is extraordinary, sensitive at times, filled with different moments of one minute duration (more or less), like something that somebody might show to an alien if he was asked: so, what are you humans look like?

A movie you definitely should not miss.

My rating: 09/10

Robin Hood (2010)

Robin Hood“, is an adventure at its best. I have to admit that after Hollywood’s strategy to focus on remakes, I was not expecting something like this. But the scenario by Brian Helgeland (who has a long track of good scripts) is great and direction is excellent: Ridley Scott is a master after all.

The story is different than the usual movies about the legend, it is original and what makes it even more interesting is the way the characters related between them. A very good cast (Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Max von Sydow, William Hurt) leaves nothing to be desired for a movie of its kind.

Go and see it! You’ll have a really good time 🙂
