Almodóvar does love destiny, chance (casualidad). It’s almost fantasy. Banderas probably gave here one of his best performances to date, with a delicacy and a depth that were really nice and refreshing to see. I will say I didn’t enjoy some of the bolder editing choices and the pace was sometimes a bit off but overall I have nothing to complain about. It’s a beautiful work.
ps: I did not love the camera he chose, it felt very digital, with no depth of field, and the texture was just “fake”. I need the grainy 35 mm feel for a story like this.
One of the purest (*), most moving and amazing use of the documentary tool/art form I’ve ever seen. It’s vulnerabile, and it’s not voyeuristic (the fetish or pleasure of watching from the “outside”), the director too is on the front line, him too is questioned and dare I say observed. It’s smart and thoughtful and genuine and powerful and to witness the genius of Baldwin is not only a great fortune, but also illuminatingly moving. I love to see…

the magic is in the details, the touch of a hand on the shoulder of a husband who feels like a stranger, a round window, a clock, a haircut, a bag, a tie, shoes and slippers, small rituals, stolen moments, all so well portrayed story... a perfect soundtrack, a magnificent cinematography, an outstanding work of art
heartbreaking, beguiling, profound, beautiful
