|The Last Laugh
The most beautiful depiction of life on screen, the most human look on life. The meaning of life (and death).
A celebration of life and art. A view of life as art and art as life. All that cinema can be.
The Passion of Joan of Arc
Minimalism as a means to express all that is transcendent and spiritual.
Portrait of a failed marriage that turns to be the failure of modern civilization.
Vivre sa vie
A take-off on film noir that becomes a philosophical look at the choices of life.
A refreshing look at narrative construction mixed with technical imagination and virtuosity.
Bergman's version of minimalism, a deep, dark and human passion of the soul.
A major tour de force of cinematic virtuosity, a puzzle portrait of human life.
The Last Laugh
A mix of realism and expressionism in a dark portrayal of modern society and the path to fascism.
A portrait of the 20th century with all its characteristics. The master of human comedy at his best.
