Meditative, deeply experiential, with fantastic surreal touch, brave author's cinema.

Mother and Son

Powerful ode to love. The elements of cinema are used as a painters’ brush. The colours tell their own story, the camera movement and the rhythm of the film as well. Deeply touching. Experiential. Intense.

The Ballad of Narayama

The film takes us into totally different world where Love is so intense, so essential and visible that everything else fades away. Great actors. Amazing narrative with strong inner drama. Emotions almost are tangible. Memorable film.

¡Vivan las Antípodas!

One of the most exciting documentaries. It takes my breath away. Visually strong, precise, planned to the smallest detail, edited in such a way that the film grows from sequence to sequence. Experiential and memorable.


1972 Italy, France

Charming, intelligent, funny and serious film that celebrates a common man and an ordinary life.

All details, from the camera movements to the costume design and art direction is superb and synchronised.
