After seeing this film, you will see the world differently from Tati's point of view, with irony, humour and love. This is the ultimate animated film, choreographed with all the visuals and sounds.
It depicts Buddhist 'impermanence' with a sense of abstraction through a series of dramas and scenes.
Freeze Die Come to Life
The protagonist, who lives momentarily, is too pure and painful, and it is heartbreaking. The camera's point of view, which accompanies the protagonist, always captures the most beautiful moment of 'now'.
The Passion of Joan of Arc
A masterpiece that captures the miraculous human expression and the light surrounding it with unparalleled beauty.
VESNICKO MÁ STREDISKOVÁ
With a single gesture, he paints a picture of relationships and characters. The warm interactions between people are beautiful.
The Exterminating Angel
The absurdity of the world is confronted as absurdity.
The psychology and background of the characters, and the background of where they are going and what they are doing, reflect 'reality', which is usually invisible to the viewer when considered in the context of real life.
At first glance, this may seem unkind and unsympathetic, but the long takes and the blank spaces in the film make us, the viewers, ponder and ponder.
My Friend Ivan Lapshin
The film is full of pleasure as a showpiece of cinema, with obscene portrayals of people, conversations that start at the same time, omission of subject matter and complex dialogue, amazingly sophisticated acting, and nervous manipulation of even the mob.
The Virgin Spring
The strong reality, the silence of God, and the beauty of allegorical depictions.
The Umbrellas of Cherbourg
The film is full of cinematic spectacle, where the sounds and images are all fake, and that is why we find both illusion and reality in them.
