    I am mad because I wanted to see this in theatres. So I went to see this movie almost two weeks ago in theatres. Or at least, I planned on going. Due to public transport delay I was five minutes late and decided I did not want to miss the first bit of this film so went to Blue Bayoo instead. Its a shame, because the first five minutes are not that important or interesting. Then they decided to not…

    I felt The Humans weirdly resonating with me. Maybe that had to do with me just moving to a new home and this being the first movie watching here. Watching this family celebrating Thanksgiving while sitting by myself in my new home.

    The Humans is very intimate. The new home has its defects, but it does not stop new owners Richard and Brigid from loving it. Water seeps through the floors, the upper neighbor causes lamps to shake and these…

    An Autumn Afternoon

    An Autumn Afternoon was Ozu's last movie. It being a movie in color, it has visually even more to offer than his earlier work. Which is great, because in my opinion his earlier work already has one of the most beautiful movies of that time. With Autumn Afternoon it seems that Ozu tried to put even more in there thematically.

    Like most of his works, it is about generational differences and relations. But this movie seems to try more. It…

    This is so good. It is, simply put, a story about a man finding purpose in life after being diagnosed with cancer. But there is way more to it. It starts off with him not actually being diagnosed with cancer, but with a mild ulcer, because doctors find that easier to tell their patients. It was only because another man told him this, that he knew he was dying. For the doctors, it was easier to tell another 'mild' story,…

    IFFR 2021: 04

    What a performance. What a movie. I absolutely enjoyed this one and I am glad I picked it. Even though I had my doubts at first, these were removed very quickly by the amazing story, fantastic acting and beautifull composition of both old and new frames.

    This movie is highly recommended and even though IFFR has not yet ended, it is my highlight this year.

    IFFR 2021: 01

    The opening night of IFFR, and what better way to start it than with a movie starring Mads Mikkelsen.

    The main storyline is very strong. A father who has lost his wife due to an accident, and has trouble dealing with both his and his daughters emotions. This central piece in this movie is carried out convincingly from start to finish.

    My main problems are with the rest of the movie. It is for me still unclear…
