The year of the lights
Spain, 1986 (104 minutes). Director: Fernando Trueba. Interpreters: Jorge Sanz, Maribel Verdú, Manuel Alexandre.
Fernando Trueba’s fifth film was moving away from the intentions of his two previous successes, Get fat Y Be unfaithful and don’t look with who, to enter more intimate territories and fill their images with a remarkable tenderness. The year of the lights It is an intense portrait of the adolescent universe, with warm intentions, covered by a script by Rafael Azcona and Trueba himself, which places the action in the postwar period, but with the intention of fleeing from topical looks. Trueba approaches his protagonist partner with the precise tenderness and lets some bitter grounds gradually take over the story. In this way, he achieves a film as simple as emotional.

The Visit USA, 2015 (94 minutes). Director: M. Night Shyamalan. Interpreters: Olivia Dejonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie, Kathryn Hahn.
After several years in which he had lost the attention of viewers, following films such as Airbender, the last warrior Y After Earth, Shyamalan was resurrected with this movie of modest postulates, but of unusual visual power. Delivered to some images that explode from a camera in hand (the one used by one of the protagonists), Shyamalan poses an amazing terrifying film in which the stay of two brothers in their grandparents’ house will reveal unexpected nightmares. A masterpiece born of absolute expressive simplicity.
