IFFR 2012: Sudoeste
Movie: Sudoeste (Eduardo Nunes, Brazil, 2012, 128 min.)
Date: Jan 31, 2012
(pure visual genius, story less impressive)
Plot: Clarice dies and is reborn, rides the merry-go-round and flirts like mad – all on a single day. Around her, life goes on in its familiar, quotidian tempo.
Cast: Nothing special, very nicely chosen cast.
Visuals: Ohwow.. Ohwow.. This movie is so absolutely beautifully filmed. Incredible work with Black and White.
Conclusion: A technically magnificent work of film making. Too bad the story’s just a bit too confusing for me. It’s that kind of movie of which I know for sure I’ll be having scenes of it flashing before my eyes the next coupla decades.
