19 Feb “The Light Thief” by Eva Daoud
Within a few minutes of viewing, “The Light Thief” quickly becomes an enveloping experience, which seems to transcend the boundaries of the screen. In these cases it is right to talk about the magic of cinema, when the story becomes something more, something without borders, without interpretations, capable of reaching the hearts of the spectators. In fact “The Light Thief” is crossed by a certain magic, which is present not only in the story, but also in the staging. The film succeeds in the delicate urgency of telling a universal story, and, albeit covered by supernatural elements, the film is an extraordinary expression of humanity and reality.
Eva Daoud models human feelings and emotions in completely new forms and gives us an engaging and dreamy cinema. With a great taste for the staging, the story of the two characters is immersed in the amazing setting of the Spanish capital and, through symbolism, metaphors and looks, the magical elements seem to be really something real and extremely close to our soul.
