United Kingdom, 2013 (105 minutes). Director: Amma Asante. Performers: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Wilkinson, Sam Reid, Sarah Gadon.
In the bosom of the English aristocracy of the eighteenth century lives a passionate story in which a mestiza, illegitimate daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral, is educated by her uncle and his wife, despite the fact that slavery continues in the country. Between the historical drama and the love tragedy, the swings of a film of firm visual packaging move, which escapes sentimentality and traces a sharp portrait of living and accurate characters.

Gone Girl. USA, 2014 (145 minutes). Director: David Fincher. Performers: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris.
A superb David Fincher intrigue with a topical plot: a woman disappears and suspicions fall on her husband. Lost is magnified thanks to its suffocating staging, it abounds in tenebrous settings and extracts visual density from each shot to increase the oppressiveness of its images.

The emperor of paris
L’empereur de Paris. France, 2018 (112 minutes). Director: Jean-François Richet. Performers: Vincent Cassel, Patrick Chesnais, August Diehl, Olga Kurylenko.
Jean-François Richet resurrects the figure of Vidocq, the legendary former criminal turned private investigator who would become the first director of the French Sûreté Nationale. His film, wrapped in a visual brilliance that explodes almost in every sequence, moves between the luxurious reconstruction of the period and the crude realism of its abundant violent sequences.

Passion of Christ
The Passion of the Christ. USA, 2004 (130 minutes). Director: Mel Gibson. Performers: James Caviezel, Maia Morgenstern, Monica Bellucci.
The Passion of Christ unleashed a wave of controversy when his intentions could not be more transparent: a mystical account anchored in a completely realistic iconic environment. So much so that Mel Gibson, in his quest for absolute truthfulness, makes the film spoken entirely in Aramaic and Latin. However, when the lashes begin and the blood jumps, Gibson falls in search of the show, sadistic at times, deep in others, but show at last, which somewhat weighs down the brilliance of his staging, as meticulous as it is expressive .

The pedal car
Spain-Portugal, 2003 (92 minutes). Director: Ramón Barea. Interpreters: Álex Angulo, Rosana Pastor, Pablo Gómez, María Pastor, Mikel Losada.
Ramón Barea’s second film travels to Franco’s Spain in 1959 and traces the portrait of a child who lives between two worlds: the one that represents his rich, right-wing, maternal family, and the one that beats his father, with a libertarian spirit. The pedal car is a remarkable costumbrista chronicle that moves between the bitter and the tragicomic, in which an attractive group of characters lives on which the director turns a personal and affective look, sometimes affectionate, sometimes ironic.
