Last week Balazs and I finally watched Frances Ha! I wanted to catch this film for a few months now and it didn’t disappoint. Have you seen it? What did you think?
The whole film was shot in black and white and mostly in NYC which gave an incredibly nostalgic vibe to the story. At times it reminded me of Woody Allen’s ingeniousness especially during the running scene. (Watch out for it). The story is about 27-year-old Frances who is kind-of-a-mess (in a very good way) and struggles with friendships, relationships, passions, loneliness and most of all, constant disappointments. Nevertheless, she stays true to herself which makes her one of the most delightful and oddly heroic characters I had the pleasure of watching on the screen. So if you are in the mood for some incredibly witty dialogues, perfect comedian timing and a truly clever story, this film is totally for you!
Bits and bobs:
- The film was written by Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig. They are actually a couple and a brilliant one.
- "People are at their best, when things are worst".
- Love was in the air...
- I can't wait for Noah's this new film to hit the screens.
- THAT moment...that person...that love - my favourite scene from the film.
- Last films I saw with Greta were Lola Versus and To Rome With Love and ever since then, I can't get enough of that girl.
- Mickey Sumner played Greta's best friend and now I can't wait to see her in Missed Connections.
- There is also Michael Esper, Adam Driver from Girls and Michael Zegen.
- Greta and Mickey on the film.
- Noah on working with his partner.
- Greta is the new poster girl for Generation Y.
P.S: Plus, a few other films that you might be in the mood for.
