TODO MUJER (2016) by Rafael Gordon
“I can die and all I feel is hunger”
I would like to make an honesty and synthesis exercise with this critic and say only “this film is awesome” and just all, but people hope more of me. this bring me to develope this ideaa little bit. For start, we have to Isabel Órdaz in a state of grace. She shows us how is possible find good roles for actresses that be more tham 50 years old. She alone carries in her backs with all movie. Continuedly, the argument, seriusly, is a madness. It is surrealist, far-fetched, dreamlike….
Amalia is a survivor. She lives in her own world, she is alone in her ruinous mansion in Segovia and in there an intruder fall in love to her lives also. One day she receives to a young beggar in the mansion. This falls to pieces and lacklustre but she defends the mansion to the hilt. She is like Sacarlet O’Hara and Tara. It is the same despair with both defend the place where they were happy. The other characters are like ghosts. They pivot around Amalia and never touch her or understand. They aren’t here for that, are like decoration to complete Amalia. However, the young, beggar is different. He is the only one that doesn’t try to do it and is, precisely, for this reason he gets change her and her life.
On the Other hand, like an aesthete, I must to mention the beauty in the plans above all the the house. All of them are like al still life picture. Pictures about about the decay. In this film exists an exquisite treatment of the light and colour, that thing was facinate to me. The same with scenes with the close-up view of Amalia, are disturbing and wonderful. All of this back to me to the main idea, this film is awesome.
