So, bare with while I dfgdlk over this movie (IMDb
). It's a Canadian film (in French) directed by Xavier Dolan who is like, 21, which is insane, and he also stars in it. I watched another of his films, I Killed My Mother
, back last year sometime, and it was equally fascinating, though that was more to do with the characters.
But this? This is one of the most aesthetically beautiful things I've ever watched. His sense of colour and composition is absolutely stunning and even though I'm sure most people couldn't sit through it because it really is very slow (hi, arthouse cinema), I could have sat there for hours just to look at it. The actors are also gorgeous (Xavier Dolan is such a cutie
, omg), and it just makes it that much better. He has these shots from behind characters that are just so pretty, and that sounds weird, but seriously.( Collapse )
Long story short: don't necessarily be looking for story, just be looking
