SAN SEBASTIÁN: IN FABRIC, ILLANG, COLD WAR, QUIÉN TE CANTARÁ

Por David S. Blanco

Pasamos la mitad de festival en un día con varias piezas para enmarcar. (…)

Tuve que re organizar toda mi agenda para poder visionar el al duo Godard – Dumont en la jornada de ayer, por lo que la participación de Strickland en la competición, debía esperar. Tampoco he tardado mucho, seis horas después, estaba haciendo cola para ver una de las mejores películas de la competición hasta el momento.

CANNES 2018: A BALANCE

By Mónica Delgado

It’s been over a week since the Golden Palm was awarded to Hirokazu Kore-eda Shoplifters, an event which closed a festival that kept its classics leitmotivs in a low key: miserabilism, cruelty or the overrating of a cinema with messages and big issues had its few peaks. Even if this year the program was better in quality compared to other edition, the jury, presided by Cate Blanchett, was discreet when awarding common themes, like the award given to the unambitious Kore-eda film, a plain family drama without any major stylistic attributes. Point aside was the jury prize to Capharnaum by Libanese filmmaker Nadine Labaki, a fact which confirm that despite the good films that made this a noble edition, remains a liking for the kind of films that look to edify consciences through stories of misery, war and refugees.

CANNES 2018: LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT BY BI GAN

By Mónica Delgado

The conception and perception of time that the young filmmaker Bi Gan proposed in his first feature Kaili Blues, is prolonged in an oneiric state in his new work, presented in Un Certain Regard at Cannes. A disperse search of a woman becomes a treaty on memory and how is it conceived, as an illusion, nightmare or, as one of the characters says in a part of the film, as dreams that couldn’t come true. In long day’s journey into night, Bi Gan returns in a formidable way, to some motifs of his last feature: time and the unavoidable figure of the clock, interior that shelter ghost or stylized beings, and a character that returns to look for a being of the past from the uncomfortableness of that something which can’t be caught.

CANNES 2018: LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT DE BI GAN

Por Mónica Delgado

La concepción y percepción del tiempo que el joven cineasta Bi Gan propuso en su ópera prima Kaili Blues, se prolonga en clave de duermevela en su nuevo trabajo presentado en Un certain regard en Cannes. Una búsqueda dispersa de una mujer se vuelve un repaso de la memoria y de cómo se la concibe, si a modo de ilusión, pesadilla o como dice uno de los personajes en alguna parte del film, o como sueños que no se pudieron concretar. En Long day’s journey into night, Bi Gan vuelve, de modo notable, a algunos motivos de su anterior largometraje: el tiempo y la figura inevitable del reloj, interiores que cobijan fantasmas o entes estilizados, y un personaje que retorna a buscar a un ser del pasado.
