When a movie becomes art trough perfect images.

Night train to Lisbon – 2013 – by Bille August – Jeremy Irons, Mélanie Laurent, Jack Huston, August Diehl, Lena Olin, Christopher Lee.

Based on the homonymous novel by Pascal Mercier, Night train to Lisbon is, to me, the kind of movie that makes me want to watch it once in a while, without ever getting bored, leaving in me some sort of a nice feeling afterwards, knowing that I will watch it again.

The plot concerns issues related to journeys, which means inner journeys, actual journeys and into the past ones. It is also about love and hate, about life’s purpose and courage in making difficult choices. But beyond these interesting and well developed topics, what I particularly enjoyed about this movie is the way images have been displayed through the camera. I am obsessed by movies that have beautiful images: they represent the perfect inspiration for anything one wants to do in life, from art to fashion, to photography, design, architecture, travel…even when it comes to create our own lifestyle. I simply loved this movie and the poetry that came from its images. Pity that I have not read the book before watching the movie 🙂
