So, just a heads up. This specific review was originally written at a time when I didn’t count on falling behind on reviews, so my solution was to cram them into a single post. However, I hated the way they turned out, so now I’m putting them into their own reviews. In short, this review is going to be crazy short. With that said, let’s carry on.
Cast: Emma Suárez (stuff that I’ve never seen or heard of) and Adriana Ugarte (stuff that I’ve never seen or heard of)
Director/Writer: Pedro Almodóvar (stuff that I’ve never seen or heard of)
Composer: Alberto Iglesias (EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS )
Cinematographer: Jean-Claude Larrieu (THE BOOKSHOP )
Editor: José Salcedo (stuff that I’ve never seen or heard of)
This is my honest opinion of: JULIETA
A Spanish film that I knew very little about going in. But this story about a woman, named Julieta, that recounts her life with her daughter Antía, how she grew up, and her ultimate disappearance was surprisingly good. Strong performances from the cast, some unexpected turns, I was pretty happy with this. The only real problem I had was the movie ends without any warning and not very satisfying. But in retrospect, I’m glad I saw it. If you don’t mind foreign films, it’s worth the time. It was compelling, real, and well told.
My honest rating for JULIETA: 4/5
