Attenberg (2010)
10/10
It works different of most of films
2 October 2015
Attenberg is a weird movie. Greek cinema is full of this kind of film, and it don't make of any of it movies less impactive. The films may be a little hard to common audiences, but there is a certain delight in it.

Director Athina Rachel Tsangari puts her female look in a Greece at an imminent crisis, a Greece that still the mother of western culture, but more and more is excluded of the own context, weirdly. Attenberg is original, strange, brave, funny and even reflexive. The situations in the film may be presented in an unconventional way, but it's not hard to discover how universal they are.

Marina (brilliantly interpreted by Ariane Labed) may not be the typical character, but see the her world from inside may be a very interesting experiences.

Neon Bull (2015)
10/10
The feeling of discovering a new world
15 September 2015
We all have heard something about Brazil. Carnival, favelas, soccer... One thing that I discovered watching this film is that I truly no nothing about this country and that still being a mystery to me, what is magical by the way. Different from some famous Brazilian movies (like City of God) Boi Neon don't talk about poverty or favelas, actually it's a movie about possibilities and dreams. The story of Iremar, a cowpoke who dreams with glitter and dresses show us a new world of possibilities coming from all Brazil. A truly beautiful way to tell the story of a nation who is constantly changing, full of hope and creativity. Director Gabriel Mascaro films all his character as an observer, someone from outside that don't even wants to move a hand to interfere in such a natural spectacle. At the same time his fascination almost eat the screen and this ferocity can reflect in the audience, completely enrapture. Boi Neon (Neon Bull) is magic, dream, a new way to see a country, a new way to see films. It's definitely not the kind of film we see everyday.

Skins (2007–2013)
Remarkable
25 August 2014
The most interesting thing about teenagers is not the way they are (because this is mainly how adults see them), but the way they want to look like and what this tell about who they really are. That's definitely what makes of Skins so remarkable. It's a sincere absurd, and this explain the success of this beautiful English series. Focusing in a character per episode, we discover the world of which of this teenagers, and the way they see the world, and also how they want to seem to the world. Knowing who they are it's impossible to not fall in love with some of them. The sadly happy Cassie, which world is full of kindness and anguish. The lovely Chris, which heartbreaking end is one of the saddest moments of the series. Or the insane and hypnotic Cook. Full of compassion and absolutely imaginative moments, Skins is above all a teenage achievement.
