A sweet and moving fairy tale, a film that gives deep emotions.
I immediately loved the contrast of colors, the cool shades of water, dark green, blue and blue that are reflected in the colors of the objects, in the small details, in contrast with the red, often represented by a single object.
THE hair band. the main character’s coat and shoes are presented in a different color during the film; the cold shades of the water of these objects, blue, dark green and blue, change radically becoming red when the protagonist begins to fall in love.
Eventually the protagonist loses a shoe in the water, a modern Cinderella and outside the box, like the prince charming, very singular, because it is an amphibious creature.
I fell in love with this movie.
I also noticed that the second “S” in in the writing on the illuminated sign of the cinema, about the film broadcast that week, that is located in the condominium where the protagonist lives, lacks until the end of the film, despite the admonition of the owner of the cinema, who complains about the absence of the second “S”, just in the first minutes of the film, while the operarius attacks the letters of the inscription in the lighted sign.
Finally: the cat, to whom the prince amphibious blue detaches the head to eat it, is called Pandora… in a sense the amphibious creature has opened the Pandora’s box? 😉
