Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
More rewatching yesterday.
This time was In Another Country, and i was happy of finally being able of seeing the movie in 35 mm and not just in DVD. But talking about the thing, if we messure Cinema in terms of quality, constancy and productivity, Hong Sang-soo is probably the best current filmmaker in the world, so it shouldn't be strange that this is pure quality.
The movie revolve, like usual, around relations between women and men, but this time the comedy is not in the things we know but the characters don't, like in the previous The Day He Arrives, this time the idea is much more simple, the comedy is just in the gesture and the expressions and this didn't mean that the matter is simple, the construction is amazing because the camera is focusing continously in the thing that it wants to remark with the constanst zoom-in and zoom-out of the situations.
The relations between the characters are great and fluid and Hong this time seems to be about the feelings that womens feel in relations so the history begans treatens the men bad but progressevily there is more affection related.
The movie is so great that even Isabelle Huppert is awesome in it, doesn't seem forced and conscious like always. The lifeguard character also is particularly funny and great
