Anatomy of a Fall


"Anatomy of a Fall" captivated me with its compelling narrative that masterfully plays with the question: did she or did she not?

This lingering mystery carries you through the film, yet intriguingly, its resolution becomes almost secondary, emphasizing that the true essence of the movie lies elsewhere. Sandra Hüller's performance is nothing short of magnificent, adding depth and complexity to the unfolding drama.

And let's not forget Snoop, the dog, who surprisingly steals the show, becoming an unexpected star in his own right.

The film brilliantly navigates the realms of ambiguity and human emotion, leaving a lasting impact with its unique storytelling approach.

Zone of Interest


"Zone of Interest" is a profoundly hard watch, yet its importance cannot be overstated.

It ventures into one of the darkest periods of human history, providing a haunting exploration of the Holocaust without depicting a single death scene.

The sound direction emerges as the film's main character, enveloping the audience in a chilling atmosphere that's as integral as any actor on screen.

Sandra Hüller delivers another beyond amazing performance, proving her versatility and depth as an actress.

This movie redefines Holocaust narratives, offering a perspective that is unlike anything seen before.

It's a film that will leave you speechless, challenging perceptions and evoking a deep, reflective silence long after the screen goes dark.


Le Bureau des Légendes


Currently, I'm engrossed in "Le Bureau des Légendes," a French spy drama that stands out for its captivating storytelling and the realism of its characters.

Unlike the American portrayal of spies as superhuman and exceptionally good-looking, this series presents spies as realistic, ordinary individuals, adding a layer of authenticity and relatability to their covert operations.

It's this grounded approach that has me hooked, showcasing the subtleties and complexities of espionage in a manner that's both intriguing and refreshingly genuine.



Alongside, I'm revisiting "Succession," this time sharing the experience with my oldest son.

What can be said about this show that hasn't already been echoed by its multitude of fans? It's simply one of the finest pieces of writing ever to grace the screen.

Each episode is a masterpiece in its own right, weaving together family dynamics, corporate battles, and personal ambitions with sharp wit and profound insights.

Watching it again, I'm reminded of its brilliance, making "Succession" a truly monumental work in television history.
