Smother has nothing to envy from past horror films and although it makes visions, hallucinations and perceptions its workhorse, it focuses mainly on the personal drama of the protagonist, classifying itself as a deep and never trivial feature film about parenthood. At the Diagonale’23.
First Snow of Summer, while suffering from excessive rhetoric and scarce originality and relying excessively on emotionality, undoubtedly can be easily enjoyed and, impeccable in its aesthetics, attempts in its own way to make its mark on the national film scene. At the Diagonale’23.
Evelyne Faye’s camera follows its protagonists in their daily activities, letting them, from time to time, confide in it, recounting their normal everyday life, their dreams, their needs, their hopes. A quiet and relaxed atmosphere, with a predominantly contemplative mood, together with pastel-coloured cinematography, is what most characterises this precious little The Way you shine. At the Diagonale’23.
