I write to tell stories

The Movie – The Darkest Minds – by Jennifer Yuh.

This film in its first part teaches a terrible truth: in the society in which we live, where bullies and delinquents rule, the exercise of deception becomes the only way to survive.
At the end of the film you remember that, if you are not part of the community of ordinary humans, well… you have to be yourself, but to stay hidden and watch the world in silence, helping those who are weaker than you, but leaving no trace.


The Movie – The Shape of Water – by Guillermo del Toro.

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.

The story sees two types of characters that are opposed: those who understand, love and protect “the different” and those who detest, despise and want to eliminate “the different”.
Other details: the scars of the film’s protagonist are, in the human world, signs of a limit that she has, because she has no voice and can not speak, because of the cuts made to her by the larynx; in the subaqueous world those scars will become gills that will allow her to breathe underwater, thanks to the magic of transformation of life that her prince amphibian possesses.
This film is poetry of the narration.

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? 😉


The Movie – Downsizing – by Alexander Payne.

A brilliant story that highlights all the sadness of humanity: that humans are small or big, in fact their mind remains weak and the social wounds are always the same.


The Movie – Borat: Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan – by Larry Charles.

Hilarious, wonderful and irreverent.
The leading actor was fantastic.
The simple story of a man, told with irony and genuineness.


The Movie – The Darjeeling Limited – by Wes Anderson.

A spiritual journey on a train in India to reunite the family, but materialism perfectly delineates human nature, even on a journey like this, but the bond between brothers exists and nothing can break it.
The reference to Paul McCartney of the Beatles, with one of the brats always walking barefoot, is bizarre.


The Movie – Alien: Covenant – by Ridley Scott.


The human race tries to colonize new worlds, but other species give battle for dominance: robotic species and monstrous species. The trust that humans have in the people, always ends up tricking their future prospects.

Not bad as science fiction films, for saga fans, of course.


The Movie – War for the Planet of the Apes – By Matt Reeves.

Violence, destruction and tyranny are distinctive signs of human beings. Animals are peaceful, as always.

Yet violence and hatred, the thirst for vengeance, generate a chain reaction of destructive events that are hard to stop, unless a race is permanently extinct.



The Movie – Solaris (2002) – By Steven Soderbergh.

A touching story that teaches us that mistakes made in our sentimental life have consequences and when this happens everyone would want to have a second chance to go back and be able to do the right thing.


The Movie – The Maze Runner – By Wes Ball.

Imprisoned in a labyrinth without a way out, the only hope to escape becomes the rush to meet the same death.


The Movie – The Darkest Hour – By Chris Gorak.

A science fiction story that does not shine for storytelling, for the screenplay, for pictures and does not shine even for the acting of the actors.
