    DAU. New Man

    ★★★★

    This was not what I expected at all. What Vika and Maxim have is not only incredibly tender but - dare I say it - quite normal and healthy? The final scene of them together, Maxim staring blankly into the impending doom through her embrace, was nothing short of devastating. The way he carried her out of the canteen. The way they kissed. When she dragged him to the mirror and kissed his nose. I can’t believe how sappy this makes me feel!


    Side note: would love to see more of Olga.

    Our Time

    ★★★

    I was scared to admit that I didn’t love it, then Sabine sighed and said “I don’t know about that.” Great opening but the kids soon became a mere backdrop. The heavy-handed voiceover made the film feel rather like a poorly adapted novel. Ester really was just left out of the men’s game - and the fact that she pointed it out to Juan’s face doesn’t make it better either.

    I need to echo my friend Griffin and say that Apichatpong just emits this wondrous energy that calms my soul. Also everyone who cares about cinema should read this poem in the form of a letter.

    La Chambre

    Chantal Akerman had an unusually slim bed, some beautiful chairs, a sturdy looking dresser with nice curves, a desk of my dreams, cute white stove tops, and exposed brick walls - I can’t tell if I’m more jealous of her occupying this perfect little studio apartment or of this apartment ever having her.
