£6 film @ Barbican: To the Wonder (2012)

Taking again advantage of the Barbican 'Monday Madness', we have booked a £6 ticket for the 18.15 projection of Terrence Malik 'To The Wonder' - fresh from its appearance at the Venice & Toronto Film Festivals.

Reassurance:

We will be out by half past eight, with plenty of time to share a drink at the pub nearby. There will be some nudity, not just sighs and fluttering eyelids*.

To join us Book here (or at www.barbican.org.uk/eticketing/performancelist.asp?shoid=35772)

*I was referring to the content of the movie - don't get overexcited.

To the Wonder

Terrence Malick follows 2011’s Tree of Life with the story of Neil (Ben Affleck), a man caught between an high school sweetheart and his European girlfriend, Marina.

Affleck plays a disenchanted American visiting Paris. He falls in love with Olga Kurlyenko, and asks her and her daughter to join him in the midwest part of the United States.

After visiting Mont Saint-Michel, Marina and Neil come to Oklahoma, where problems arise. Marina meets a priest and fellow exile, who is struggling with his demons, while Neil feels the awakening of an old flame burning inside.

Trailer: http://www.imdb.com/rg/s/4/title/tt1595656/#lb-vi[masked]

In a Terrence Malick's film, acting doesn't seem to play the big part. Instead, the actors are mixed with the cinematography (which is unquestionably stunning here) and drawn-out music.

Overall, "To the Wonder" is a wondrous, mysterious film brimming with a brooding drama unique to this director's sort of film.
Half of people will love it, half will hate it.

Director: Terrence Malick

Writer: Terrence Malick

Stars: Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem, Rachel McAdams

Duration: 112 min

    A new experience for me!
    Have to abandon expectations of plot, dialogue etc and let the emotional tsuname wash over you.

      Sorry Tiziana about the museum on Sunday, but unfortunately, I have an emergency today that needs urgent attention. So I won't be going to the film. Another time soon perhaps. Enjoy!

    Amazing combination of visual elements to convey a wealth of emotions through a non-standard format. I will watch it again, Malick has been a discovery - he portrays the loneliness, longing, euphoria, hope and disappointment as only a master can. I used to be in love with Peter Greenaway's visual expression, his ebullient photography a pantagruelian feast for the senses. Malick depicts another side of love, the unfulfilled, the withering plant craving to be fed and the intensity of a passion who is denied expression (the counterpart is not there, be it a human or spiritual one). I could go on for pages on this film, but I'd rather not afflict further those who clearly hated it : )
