    What do you see in life?
    Well… I only see good things. I only see the good in people, too.

    In HAHAHA, Hong Sang Soo follows the stories of two male friends in a pub having a drink, both telling anecdotes about their recent trip to the coast. In doing so, they unconsciously come into contact with the same people and visit the same places. But they don't realise this during their conversation. They have their eyes closed due to…

    Portrait of a Young Girl at the End of the '60s in Brussels

    “La grande affaire de la vie, c'est le sexe, vous voyez.”
    “Si c'est vrai, c'est encore plus dèsespérant que je le pensais.”

    Portrait d'une jeune fille de la fin des années 60 à Bruxelles is literally about the title. Akerman follows a girl who wanders through Brussels. Even if the picture quality was not optimal, the background of Brussels provided a pleasant atmosphere for the conversations Michèle has with her best friend and a boy she meets in the cinema.…

    I love food, cooking and worldly cuisine just like my best friend. But there is one difference. I can taste, eat, smell. He has not been able to do this for some years now. But this didn't stop him from looking for ways to continue with his passion for food. He knows much more than I do about cooking (and even more about Japanese cuisine), he reads a lot about it, has a stack of cookery books and has seen…

    It’s barbaric! This is god’s house. Leave immediately!”
    “Haven’t you got a better place to play?”
    “Young people these days…”
    “How can you know what God prefers, ladies? Maybe he likes to play with dogs?”

    Contemporary dance steps with strange movements in a dark theatre light? Or is it not? No, they seem to be a few fingers moving as fluidly as a human body, a puppet show of hands, making a story accompanied by live piano music? Or maybe…

    In a few days, I will graduate. One of the most important things I have learned and my professors have kept repeating from the first to the last year is how important a good (story) structure is. A funnel structure. This film is a good example of that. For me, perhaps the main reason why this film works so well. Toyoda completely dragged me into his story with his build up.

    Top funnel: starting with a very specific situation that…

    Waves. Jacques. Camera. Sun.

    Jacquot de Nantes, from shot one, a film in which Varda engulfs us with her love for her husband, his films and their treasured cinema. Melted together through a whirlpool into a masterpiece of a film. Varda does what she does best in this one: showing her love for her fellow man through her lens. And how can she do that better than about the person she loved the most?

    Her dynamic camera tells the story,…
