Shades of All About Eve, but in the pas de deux between Maria and Valentine that occupies much of the movie, Val is no Eve Harrington. Maria may be appalled by the temerity of the young self-promoters, but in a hypercompetitive market that feeds on youth, even thirty-year-olds are looking over their shoulders. Even though I haven't had a whole lot of time to think about it, this is one of my favorite films so far in 2015, so if you haven't seen it I highly suggest it. It's not until Wilhelm dies the catalyst for the play and could be compared to the break of day that signals the start of the clouds travelling up the valley that transitions start to begin. Maria Enders Juliette Binoche is asked to perform a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years before.
Kristin Stewart is fantastic, her winning a Caesar award this year was a big reason why I watched it. The role Maria played, as an 18 year old upstart, was that of the ever manipulative Sigrid, who toys with her 20 year older counterpart, Helena, who is obviously falling for her younger counterpart. How do we deal with aging, which is something that not only actresses care about, but all of us care about. Set in the gorgeous Swiss Alps, an aging woman who is challenged with a part of play that is plays homage to an earlier version. I didn't really see Chloe's character as a true Sigrid despite mild connections existing. And just like age and death, nothing escapes it.
Which is a movie about a guy writing a play about a guy writing a play about the girl he wants to marry. This concept of film is becoming more popular in the past decade or so and when done well as it is here it provides a depth that allows for actors to truly showcase their talents, and bring the audience in further within the world of the film.

Those looking for catty backstabbing may be put-off, but those who think they'll get zonked by ivory tower deconstruction may find themselves engrossed. I kind of saw it as Maria letting go of her past, and letting go of the role she previously played in Maloja Snake.
While staying in a chalet in the Sils Maria where the play was written and takes place she rehearses scenes with her personal assistant Valentine. My favorite scene in the movie was when the audience are literally lost in the meta-ness of the situation and its hard to tell whether a conversation is part of rehearsing lines or personal statements. And as a result, Maria is left by herself to find out that Val was right. But still, when she gives advice to Johan? Either way thanks for the input. Yeah… that is actually what happens in Sils Maria.
People in their forties feel older than those in their eighties, because they are still in the game and yet being ruthlessly sidelined. At least just enough of a walk through to contextualize where you stand.

His films may seem almost ungraspably diverse, from the kinky, jet-lag-inducing Boarding Gate 2007 and the propulsive action thriller Carlos 2010 to quieter, more intimate dramas like Summer Hours 2008 , until you consider what they share. She guided Maria to viewing ridge where Maria might finally find the courage to face her own mortality. I wanted to see her triumph and steal the show from Joanne so badly. I finally watched it yesterday.
The meta elements of Clouds of Sils Maria took me a bit by surprise. Princess Leia fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Helena commits suicide after Sigrid takes advantage of her, and dumps her. Since Maria is of a certain age, she's baffled by gossip blogs and superhero movies. Olivier Assayas' English-language character study. For this son of a screenwriter and former critic for Cahiers du cinéma, movies are not just a frame of reference for his characters but a second skin, a primary color in his palette.
More than that I would like to talk about the symbolism that I believe that the Majola Snake holds within the film and how both Kristen Stewart and Juliette Binoche finds themselves back and forth between Sigrid and Helena. Archived from on 11 May 2015. There's almost no independent filmmaking in France, and there isn't supposed to be. To prepare for the role, she accepts Rosa's offer to stay at the Melchiors' house in Sils Maria. Moretz is a fitting third point to the triangle. Valentine is probably her best role to date: she's sharp and subtle, knowable and then suddenly distant, and a late, surprising twist is handled with a brilliant lightness of touch. And yeah, that line was definitely was a well cooked grenade of foreshadowing.
The glasses, ratty hair and head scratching do whatever acting there is for her. At one point I was watching the movie and wondered if I was being tricked: did I think that this films had depth only because it was so meta. During their time at Sils Maria, Maria and Valentine spend much of their days hiking in the Alps. Clear, polite and well-written responses should be upvoted; opinions should not be downvoted. I watched the movie again today, to see if the theory held up and how they interacted in public.
