12 Feb “THE DOORS BETWEEN US” by Maximillian Aguiar
“The Doors Between Us” is certainly one of those films that make American and world independent cinema shine. With a completely free and fluid aesthetic and directorial approach, Maximillina Aguiar, the director stages an exciting mystery movie full of twists and shrewd humor. Escaping precise critical definitions, the film is actually a shining example of genre cinema, and how, in the right hands, it can become a truly refined cinematographic experiment. Aguiar plays with archetypes and characters, with the (spectacular) script, and with faces. The result is a feature film capable of keeping viewers glued to the chair and which behind the suspense hides an elegant creative writing work, worthy of certain pulp or noir tales that filled the shops years ago. The naturalness of the dialogues perfectly matches an excited and indiscreet directorial technique, which highlights the faces of the numerous protagonists.
The film is a fragmented odyssey of lies and feelings, topped with original narrative ideas, and this incredible mix makes “The Doors Between Us” a unique film. The farce of humanity performs in a single room, for a few hours, and not everyone will come out alive …
A praise to the cast.
