    The Double Life of Véronique

    ★★★★★

    The Double Life of Véronique an atmospheric description.

    Weronika, red blood that stops flowing.

    Cardiology, an endless corridor with somewhere light at the end of the tunnel.

    The sinus node a tangle of wires through which bright red blood is pumped to the heart. But the knot comes loose. Or is it rather, too tight? The sinus veins are like bad shoelaces that suddenly loosen at an indeterminate time of the day and you only notice this after a few…

    Waves. Jacques. Camera. Sun.

    Jacquot de Nantes, from shot one, a film in which Varda engulfs us with her love for her husband, his films and their treasured cinema. Melted together through a whirlpool into a masterpiece of a film. Varda does what she does best in this one: showing her love for her fellow man through her lens. And how can she do that better than about the person she loved the most?

    Her dynamic camera tells the story,…

In the beginning she tries to find her own unique corridor within the infinite same grey corridors that the monastery, her…

    Before Sunset

    ★★★★½

    “You can never replace anyone because everyone is made up of such beautiful specific details.”

    Before Sunset is a film that I actually wanted to watch because it takes place in Paris and I was on holiday there last week and for the famous quote from the Notre Dame (“but you have to think that Notre Dame will be gone one day”), which I have now seen half burnt down for the first time. In the end, it turned out…

    In a few days, I will graduate. One of the most important things I have learned and my professors have kept repeating from the first to the last year is how important a good (story) structure is. A funnel structure. This film is a good example of that. For me, perhaps the main reason why this film works so well. Toyoda completely dragged me into his story with his build up.

    Top funnel: starting with a very specific situation that…
