10.000 km by Carlos Marques-Marcet (2014)

A simple film with two characters of a long time couple whose lives get to be changed because of the woman’s scholarship in far California.

Calm and wise story proving that distance doesn’t matter – if something isn’t right, physical closeness or physical distance won’t change anything.

The story would probably end up the same way if one of the character didn’t move across the globe but say begin to work harder and be more absent in the house.

Universal truth is that sometimes we keep being with someone just for the sake of it. Because of being accustomed to them and everyday life together. And sometimes it just doesn’t work.

“LOLO” by Julie Delpy (2015)

Funny, smart, intriguing – intense dialogues and a surprising turn of events. Something I like to see in comedy.

It’s reminded me of Woody Allen, but it’s lighter, more feminine. Just like Julie Delpy is a lighter, more feminine artist than Allen.

At first it is not obvious as to why the title character is not present at the beginning of the movie, but then gradually we find out why he is so important to the main protagonist – Violette played by Julie Delpy herself.

 

Very pleasant film to watch on a Saturday afternoon and like Two days in Paris – I will be getting back to this film with pleasure.
