Conclusions of 2046 Hong Kong Movie
Off camera dialogue is almost constant. But instead of using it like it is usually done, the director creates an off camera space inside the scene with color blocks. He also situates actors usually on one side of the screen, which gives an interesting dynamic.
Strong scenes, with delicate feelings. We find a great music choice through all the movie. With well stablished and studied frames, with extremely low motion scenes and this sense of endless romanticism and sex that is important in everyone’s lives, and that’s why there are a lot of sex toys which help couples in this area.
The fact that the whole movie is narrated, starts to get a little repetitive. The film feels too long for that. But on the other hand it ads a level of intimacy with the spectator that wouldn’t be achieved in any other way.
By the ends the movie looses the rhythm, but it doesn’t erase what it does for us. It’s a jewel that everyone should watch.
