Berlin



Now that i left Berlin, i want to honor the past commitment of having some kind of review about all the films I watched. Even if it’s too reducing, minimalist… at least a simple entry with a “star” (1 to 10) will be better than noting 😉

My photos and videos are outside the blog, and the film list just below:

8 out 10. A Bedouin micro village gets the threat of demolition, and Kamel stoically tries to keep with his life. The slow paced, but hard watching experience was complemented by the presence of cast, including main actor (a evicted Bedouin himself).

6 out 10. First Nepalese movie on Berlinale. Shot with micro-budget and without script given to actors, this movie goes around the reasons why some of the passengers need to be on a bus heading to Kathmandu.

7 out 10. directorial debut of Angelina Jolie. She gets involved again in the “victims of war” subject, and uses the “predictable” storytelling techniques of Hollywood. The plot appears too black-and-white on the way it “justifies the international intervention”, but the actors save the film with their surprising good performances.

7 out 10. European co-production about the quest for a better life, searched by different women from different “classes”. Being enough explicit, we are shown their sexual lifes with connections to love and family.

9 out 10.
Very fresh take on “film-within-a-film” playing with many of Filipino clichés and different ways of making a film.

6 out 10.
A average romantic comedy, saved only because of my curiosity on seeing the same formula redone with chinese details.
