Sometimes you watch the first scenes of a movie and you already know how it’s going to end. The hero that saves the day, the lucky coincidence, the star-crossed lovers. The ultimate battle that will save the universe from total destruction. The coming of age story disguised as a road trip, the not-so-accurate revisitation of the past, the “Same Old Dystopian Future – version 5.2”. The remake of the remake of the remake of what might have been a remake. The struggle, the growth, the noble sacrifice.
You find yourself coming out of the cinema feeling frustrated by the excess of action and lack of content of what could have been a great movie if only the authors had focused a little more on dialogues and a little less on special effects.
And then there’s the day you start watching something – anything – just to pass the time, and that one film will speak to you so unexpectedly and strongly to make you remember straight away why it is that you love cinema. Art, literature, entertainment are among the most powerful and yet intimate ways for human beings to communicate.
And when a film makes us laugh, cry, think and, most of all, feel – that is when the message has been received – loud and clear! – in that intense, unique, overwhelming way we can’t sum up with words but are all familiar with.
This website is for all you cinema lovers looking for the next film that will speak to you.
