Vertigo (1958)

Starting as a rather pleasant atmospheric film with a light gloomy, mystical or even existential undertone (or was I just imagining it?) after crossing the first hour point, it somehow slips into a plane detective/romantic story.

De tweede film van Fernardo Eimbcke werd hartelijke verwelcomed door zo wel Cannes filmfestival als Berlin filmfestival, en er zijn redenen voor. Mooi gefilmde beelden van Mexicanse cultuur en architectuur en heel natuurlijk acteerwerk zijn er twee van. Voor het oppervlakteverhaal gebeurt er lekker weinig, maar is dat echt zo? Langzaam  bewegt Juan zich door de..
