A FILM CAN CHANGE THE WAY YOU SEE ASPECTS OF LIFE, CAN TEACH, IT CAN GIVE A FEELING THAT YOU DID NOT PREVIOUSLY KNOW EITHER
There are moments that are photographed in the mind of the viewer who sees them, as if they really lived, endorsed and made a personal luggage. The eye of the director who wanted to film them has captured that shot in a fragment of life giving it to those who want to know and make it their own. There are frames of films that know how to tell a real lifestyle or analyzing it in just a feeling, but deep.immortalized as moods, sets of elements that give those images a life of its own, meaning regardless of whether a film from which they are drawn.
The frame from the film “Mommy” by young director Xavier Dolan is a poetic picture and at the same time transgressive.
Steve, a young boy suffering from hyperactivity is the son of Diane and their dancing in the kitchen of “On ne change pas” by Celine Dion is epic. There is something in the frame that goes beyond the simple story, something that adds value to the entire film. The freedom of Steve and Diana (with the neighbor Suzanne missing in the frame) was caught in a moment of simple daily life, captured and became curious.
In the frame of “Jules and Jim”, the 1962 film directed by François Truffaut, the smile of Catherine (Jeanne Moreau) gives the picture the carefree character of a kind of game in which the participants (the characters Catherine, Jules and Jim) are adults . A trio that plays with the “elective affinities” that binds them and then separates them, which makes them rejoice and then suffer.
It is staged in small what may be rather large scale in the mechanism of life.
We report here five frames of movies that made and still make up the history of cinema, alternating with five frames from films of contemporary age.
