Disco Polo Storyline

It’s the 1990’s and Poland is free again. Everything is possible. Two young boys, Tomek (Dawid Ogrodnik) and Rudy (Piotr Głowacki) are decided to become the next stars of the entertainment industry, particularly the “Disco Polo” music genre in Poland. For doing so, they’re decided to meet the eccentric music manager Daniel Polak (Tomasz Kot), who incarnates by himself the music preferences of all Polish people.

Everything will go very nice when they sign the contract and a huge success is arising in their careers with their new band named as “Laser.” He buys colorful and shiny new clothes, drinks the most bubbly sparklings at nightclubs, he is surrounded by beautiful girls and even acquires a very classy yacht. Then he realizes he has fallen in love with Anka/Gensonina (Joanna Kulig), another artist of Polak’s music company … and Polak’s girlfriend too! So they start having an affair until Polak has suspicions of what is going on.

The film’s best essence can be concentrated in this moment, where Tomek has to decide if he loses himself to money and girls betraying not only his own manager, but the spirit and base of the fans who have supported him. Since there’s a political agreement between Polak and his partner, in which another music band, “Atomic”, should be always on the top of the list, Tomek should decide on how to balance the concerts and the complexes of being always the second-placed. “Laser” will find a way on how to beat those obstacles and demonstrate everybody the talents which can make him be at the top.

Disco Polo Movie Review

Despite the typical cliché of young people trying to acquire the American dream, with money and fame and taking the beautiful girl to bed, I think this film has something more to think about on. First of all, the desire of Tomek for being a better singer and growing in his career. Second, it shows the impressive hunger of success in Poland during those revolutionary years. Third, the importance which Polish people give to faithfulness and loyalty over all what I’ve previously mentioned. Fourth, it shows a kind of “Leviathan” shadow in some Polish minds in which there are any type of conspiracy theories, for everything, just not to let you be and enjoy who you actually are.

The film’s photography is hyper-colorful and the music is so vivid that it invites you to watch this production as a genuine belated jewel of Disco Polo, the 90’s Polish urban-folk music by excellence.

Photon 2017 Full Movie

Photon Storyline

This very interesting Polish film starts with a single dot, a pixel, and develops a kind of history of matter, since the so-called “particle of God” existed, by its relation with the first photon. It has a wonderful overview of protons and neutrons and how they stick together and separate each other, and amazing images of electron movement around the nucleus. It explains with incredible molecular photography how the tension beneath the bodies occur while they come into contact. The film continues this sort of “history of matter”, explaining the chains of atoms in the prehistoric oceans and how living beings (without calling them as that) start to appear.

Then it explains some basic animal instincts as the sense of belonging and the necessity of religion and law in human beings (even showing with apes that “people in other continents don’t know the value of death”), through a mistaken only-biologist approach. The film acquires a new dimension while the scientist is interviewed in a very natural and human perspective, even showing some mistakes and anger in his behavior. The story continues showing, again with wonderful molecular photography, the marvels of neurobiology, neurophysics and neurochemistry.

It ends making a kind of prospective on how terrorists will have no sense to exist, how physical pain will diminish throughout the world and everything will be controlled by robots which can even make mind-backups, insinuating someday energy will beat matter, to realize in it’s final conclusion that in this just material absurdity, ignorance on behalf this scientific challenges is the best.

Photon Movie Review

This 2017 movie has won, deservedly, several prizes across Copenhagen, Toronto, New York, Sydney, Moscow, London and all around Poland obviously. The molecular photography is really worth to watch the film, it’s wonderful balance and contrast of blue and red pixels in it’s neurological part can make your mind blow out of astonishment.

Nevertheless, in my particular opinion, it fails in explaining the whole universe only by biological means and discrediting since the beginning all religious and moral perspectives. Watch out and be cautious with the extreme and bloody scenes of feti in surgical tables! In someway, due to this extreme materialism and mechanism, Andrzej, the narrator, feels his will annihilated. In this line of ideas … what lack of faith can do! Even colors according to Norman do not really exist, since they are a subjective consideration of the brain and only the brain.

The movie is thus, seriously viced by a sterilized trascendence in the message it wants to give, ending by a full (and fool) skepticism, afraid and contempted of watching the broad and total perspective and more conformed or satisfied with a closer, specific and atomic image of a “History of Life”, in which if hope doesn’t have a place, it’s worth of a neurotic and suicidal patient in a mental institution.

Harvey Movie Review

HARVEY is a 1950 comedy-drama movie in which Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart)has a very good imaginary friend: an invisible giant rabbit called indeed, Harvey. He is in reality, a pooka, a benign creature derived from the Celtic Mythology which can bring either good or bad fortune. All the family is really worried about Elwood, they are so ashamed when he starts talking alone to this mysterious creature in front of other persons. His family will try to figure out if this situation is a consequence of drinking alcohol or simply, a mental illness such as schizophrenia.

Elwood’s sister, Veta, after so many years of dealing with this situation, starts watching the rabbit too. Additionally, Harvey has the ability to stop clocks, so every person who can see him cannot lose any single minute of his precious time. As Elwood often quotes: “For years I had to decide on being either smart or pleasant and I recommend being pleasant.”

What Makes Harvey A Good Movie To Watch?

Harvey is an exquisite piece of classical English comedy of the 20th century which transports us to amazing psychological games in which you don’t know if Elwood is just playing, pretending or really he’s insane. The fundamentals of valuable human company acquire a new, nice, and qualified perspective since Harvey is used to avoid unpleasant topics or required explanations that will serve Elwood to make himself understood easier and in good dialectics.

Common people are surprised of the high-degree of thoughts he could elaborate in company of Harvey: together, such as in a Platonic cave, the couple will fly with the golden wings of thought to the highest mountains and hills of human understanding probing the limits of what is imaginable, everything in an environment of comedy farces, intrigues and confusions which sometimes materialize as if the giant pooka really exists and could taste as a delightful joke … or as the deepest drama!

Juan Charrasqueado 1948 – Review

Spread The Love For Movies

Movie – Juan Charrasqueado

Direction – Ernesto Cortázar

Country – Mexico

Language – Spanish

Cast – Pedro Armendáriz, Miroslava, Fernando Soto

Releasing Year – 1948

Genre –  Western, Drama

Juan Charrasqueado 1948 Review –

“Juan Charrasqueado” (played by multiple-award winner, Pedro Armendariz) is the story of a Mexican ‘charro’, a countryside ranch man, who has just arrived from a long travel far away and meets at his hometown a lot of old friends and partners, which, now watch him suspiciously as a cocky, opportunistic and scrounger loudmouthed man. Once established again in town, he’ll be only busy playing cards at the “cantina” (bar), getting drunk and “enjoying” the pleasures of life, until he realizes he has a deep love with María (played by the beautiful Slavic actress, Miroslava). Unfortunately, Maria’s brothers have planned to marry her with a wealthy ranch owner. A real duel will start between Juan and the brothers of María, until he decides to kidnap her. Juan is having more and more troubles all around the town and people will plan to stop him doing always all what he wants. The results could be of fatal and terrible consequences.

The film takes us to the Mexican countryside of the 1940s with all the atmosphere it implies: women flirting, gossiping and having fun in the town center; ranch men betting at cockfights; singing, gambling and fighting at the “cantinas” and the multiple adventures struggling with drunk-men. A beautiful story is behind this scenario: the one of a real, traditional, Mexican “macho” who falls in love with the most beautiful girl in town. The main character will have to watch himself in the mirror, realize what does he can offer María and make strong decisions about their future. Decisions that could make arise the envy and hate of an entire town that is not disposed to tolerate outstanding demonstrations of foolish virility, more a result of a national complex than the noble reality it involves. The film offers an interesting perspective of the psychology of the Mexican “macho” behavior, so selfish and strong in appearance and so weak and sensible in his deep soul.”
