Javo ¯\_(ツ)_/¯’s review published on Letterboxd:
is to run the risk of failure,
the risk of betrayal,
you fear your love has die,
perhaps is waiting to be transform into something higher."
To The Wonder is a poem to love, a reminder of the difficulties of being in love or the pain of love. I was mesmerize by what Malick was showing me in every scene, 'To the Wonder' is abstract but above all is beautiful.
If 100 words are spoken during the almost two hour runtime is to much, there is almost no dialogue, only interactions, Malick certainly got the best from Olga Kurylenko and Rachel McAdams, there expressions and mannerisms told the story better than words, some of the finest work from this two actresses.
Let's talk about the cinematography.. outstanding, there is no way I can describe with words Terrence Malick and Emmanuel Lubezki's work, they can make the mundane and trivial shine like the brightest star in the sky.
The Music by Hanan Townshend, was the perfect companion to the story, it shape the themes beautifully, without been melodramatic or over-powering, it was elegant and complementary to every scene.
To The Wonder is Terrence Malick take on relationships, a very unique take, the film certainly is not for everyone, but if you let yourself get lost in the art, you might find yourself amaze with what 'To The Wonder' has to say.
