Futuro Beach (2014)Trenutak kada moramo donijeti životne odluke koje se tiču odvajanja od kuće, prijatelja, promjena grada ili države u kojoj ćemo živjeti je uvjek težak.
Tako je i u ovoj priči Donato, momak koji je radio kao spasilac na jednoj brazilskoj plaži odlučio da odseli u Njemačku kod Conrada, momka kojeg je upoznao radeći kao spasilac na plaži.
Iza sebe je ostavio majku i malog brata kojima se od momenta dolaska u Njemačku nije ni javio.
Futuro Beach (2014)Kako su godine prolazile Donato je savladao nostalgiju prema rodnom domu i prilagodio se sasvim drugačijem načinu života, sve dok mu se jednog dana sada već odrasli brat nije pojavio na vrata.
Mnoge gejeve strah od odbacivanja natjera da bez riječi napuste kuću. U momentu im se čini da je lakše otići ne objašnjavajuči prave razloge zbog kojih su se odlučili na taj korak. Uglavnom nađu izgovore zbog posla, škole i li nešto drugo I jednostavno odu.
Međutim u većini slučajeva se uspostavi da dok ne završe taj razgovor sa roditeljima i familijom ne mogu nastaviti dalje svojim životom. Istina uvjek nađe svoj put do ljudi kojima je stalo do vas.
Short after facing the failure of an attempt to rescue a drowning man, Donato meets Konrad, friend of the victim. Motivated by the circumstances, Donato decides to begin a new life in Berlin, but pieces of his past are coming after him.
Beautiful, yet dull
20 May 2014 | by Not Jim (Brasil) – IMDB
Futuro Beach (2014)The thing that struck me the most about this movie is how beautiful it is, and I mean literally, aesthetically. Not only is the scenery gorgeous, but also its camera work is outstanding: Praia do Futuro’s shots are absolutely amazing, most scenes could be made into pictures to be hung on the walls of an art gallery – there could probably be a whole exposition just made with screenshots of this movie.
The film’s appeal, however, doesn’t go much beyond that. Its plot had potential, the trailer made it seem like it would be intense and deeply emotional, yet the whole story is quite dull, with some unclear or poorly explained parts and underdeveloped dialogue. The characters don’t lack depth per se, but their personalities were rather shallowly explored, perhaps hindered by the lack of vocal expression or by the stumbling plot.
Futuro Beach (2014)Contrarily to what a review I read (in another website) suggested, I did not feel like this movie was too cliché-ridden, and the unoriginal moves were fairly understandable, as they could be justified by either the situation in which they were inserted or the characters’ psyche. Yet, I feel the innovative elements were obscured by the overall dephtlessness of the whole production and great ideas and quotes were lost in senselessness and barely-existent dialogue.
This is definitely not a bad movie, it was just not enough to touch or affect me in any way.
