La vida sense la Sara Amat 2019
1h 14min | Drama | 5 February 2020 (Italy)
Pep, a 13-year-old boy, is in love with a girl from his grandparents village, Sara Amat. One summer night Sara disappears without a trace. After a few hours, Pep finds her hiding in his room.
The film is very well directed, with continuous short shots that put the viewer in the plot, the script and the narration are very good, they get to show us that desire for sexual freedom that arises between the couple. The director manages to make and show us a mixture between the reality of what we are seeing and everything that is hidden behind, such as desire, rejection and family situations of Sara’s parents.
The group of youth actors works quite well, it shows that they work without a script, they are very natural and they are saying things as they come out. Above all, I highlight the photography and the atmosphere that they have done and that has taken us to the eighties. The film looks with certain pleasure, it is nice and due to its short duration it passes quickly, I was left wanting to have continued, although he highlighted the great final shot.
