‘Two‘is a kind of movies that appears pressured to emerge from one other movie. As if somebody had entered a room with the DVDs of flicks like ‘Dice’, ‘Noticed’ or ‘Buried (Buried)’ they usually had not let him out till that they had one thing related in hand. There is nothing incorrect with this: No matter it takes to keep away from having to face that clean web page that so usually engulfs us like a black gap.
In fact, this sort of movie requires one thing elementary to work: A very good justification that is sensible of it. And in case you don’t have it like in ‘Noticed’, higher not give it up like in ‘Dice’. This is the primary drawback with this movie by Mar Targarona, which if we don’t title it the identical, it bursts. The justification is not on the degree of an thought that, prolonged over somewhat greater than 60 minutes, is proven as a really lengthy quick movie.
Throughout these 60 minutes it really works fairly nicely, actually. How ought to. Every part is positive. It is intriguing. It is uncomfortable. However when the time comes for why, it is revealed as an method with out historical past, whimsical, and that regardless of working leaves us with the sensation, cursed and annoying, of a lot for therefore little. Or nothing. A sort of joke that, not like ‘Buried (Buried)’, leaves us bare within the midst of white indifference.
It additionally leaves us a bit helpless. ‘Stay is life‘, the second time thus far this yr that Albert Espinosa punctured the bone after the equally unsuccessful’ Los espabilado ‘. Directed by a Dani de la Torre downhill, it is a sort of apocryphal model of ‘Rely on me’ the place to the shock of nobody, we discover ourselves once more with the same old sources of the novelist. And a lot does the pitcher go to the supply, that in the long run …
… what has to occur occurs, to the equally shock of nobody. It appears to Espinosa that it has occurred like Pixar, that it has come too excessive with “being emotional” and has forgotten that emotion is not cornered, it is given freedom. “A Midsummer Night time’s Dream” throughout which all the pieces that was deliberate to occur in such a pressured manner occurs, that all the pieces finally ends up being as false because the smile of a politician.
A movie incapable of hiding behind itself, whose artifice is too uncovered and its credibility unsure because of its personal inner logic, which, to disguise, begins and ends with OPUS’s “Stay Is Life” as a blatant safe-conduct. A kind of who declare to go towards the clock after which frequently lose time on a path that, oh, coincidence, all the universe is ten minutes away.
Moreover, underneath its candid, harmless and pleasant facade, it hides and tasks a harmful double studying that is opposite to what it is supposed to evangelise. It is what must be good after which appear as faux as a Saveme program. We have now at the very least 5 better-directed youngsters left than in ‘Los salabilados’, and a bearable hope as soon as we perceive that we face a film, and solely a film if one doesn’t take it critically.
