'The delicacy'

France, 2011 (108 minutes). Directors: David and Stéphane Foenkinos. Performers: Audrey Tautou, François Damiens.

A light-air romantic comedy that shows a woman's rebirth to life and love. The images of The delicacy, accompanied by a musical coating that becomes suffocating, offer some glimpses of ingenuity, especially thanks to a good handling of the ellipsis.

Inception.EE UU, 2010 (150 minutos. Director: Christopher Nolan. Intérpretes: Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Lewitt.

Through an elaborate intrigue and some ostentatious images, Christopher Nolan threads a story that lives in the world of dreams, where some individuals penetrate to appropriate the subconscious of the sleeper. While embarking on various narrative levels, Nolan plays the card of fleeing from the dreamlike and showing the interior of dreams as a realistic place, with its own rules, but always recognizable.

'Atonement'

Atonement. United Kingdom-France, 2007 (117 minutes). Director: Joe Wright. Performers: Keira Knightley, James McAvoy, Vanessa Redgrave, Saoirse Ronan.

The British Joe Wright is not paid much attention from the critics, but he has already delivered a good handful of excellent films such as Pride and Prejudice, The Soloist and Hanna, plus Atonement, a torn and painful film that reveals a meta-narrative reflection to combine true stories with others perhaps imagined. Wright mercilessly squeezes characters united by love, pain and guilt complex, and includes in the footage a gigantic sequence shot, as elaborate as it is memorable, that literally perplexes.

'Holidays in Rome'

Roman Holiday. EE UU, 1953 (113 minutos). Director: William Wyler. Intérpretes: Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, Eddie Albert.

The great William Wyler plunges into the territories of classic comedy, of a cinema long dead. A princess full of courtly life runs away from the palace and walks through the streets of Rome with an American journalist. They are Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, so you can start enjoying yourself. The elegance of Wyler's camera, which follows his characters almost modestly, and the script by Ian McLellan Hunter and John Dighton do the rest. If many presumably wise young directors saw it …

‘Elysium’

USA, 2013 (109 minutes). Director: Neill Blomkamp. Cast: Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga.

After the remarkable political parable underlying a science fiction film like District 9, Neill Blomkamp relapsed into the genre with a futuristic story that also addressed social issues: the division between the rich who inhabit a luxurious space station and the poor who huddle together on a devastated Earth.

‘Carrie’

United States, 1976 (95 minutes). Director: Brian De Palma. Int.: Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, William Katt.

From his first films, Brian De Palma clearly showed his playful and bombastic concept of cinema, which would take him to heights like Snake Eyes and Femme fatale, but also a mess of the stature of Dressed to kill and In the name of Cain. This adaptation of Stephen King's first novel draws the gruesome story of a young woman with telekinetic powers, dominated by a fanatical and possessive mother.
