My recent visits to the small screen cinema on the plane include “Poupoupidou” by Gerald hustache- Matthieu
I give it 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 5 stars
A cleverly crafted thriller that will play with your mind and excite your senses.
Backed by a strong lead performance from Jean-Paul Rouve and some gorgeous wintertime landscapes, this second feature from writer-director Gerald Hustache-Mathieu is a definite to attract art house audiences interested in a movie from France that doesn’t only involve sex and chatter (though there’s some of both on display, plus some odd snippets of full-frontal male nudity).
The bottom line is that its a quirky murder mystery where the world’s most famous blond gets resurrected in rural France.. script plus music superbly crafted…
I also just finished watching “A separation” by Asghar faradi.
This is a compelling drama about the dissolution of marriage in Iran.
There are stories within stories, cleverly crafted and seemlingly interwoven into the total fabric of the main story.
I won’t give the game away but I loved it. Well acted with moments of poignant emotion displayed such as when Nader is shower bathing his Alzheimer – suffering father.
Definitely worth the Oscar it won for best foreign language film 2012…
My opinion… find an arthouse and go and see it….
