10 Gen “Kold” by Andrew Vandaele
In this splendid work of arthouse cinema, “Kold”, director Andrew Vandaele plunges his camera into that rift between feelings and reality, in search of a balance that the world too often denies us, forcing us to take refuge in our inner self. .
For Vandaele, expert storyteller and visionary director, seven minutes are enough to stage the silent turmoil that follows one another within us, while everyday life flows impassively and slowly for everyone.
The staging is a fundamental part of the story, and the visual elements, especially the cinematography, seem to build around the story the metaphorical, cold and systematic setting in which each of us really lives. “Kold” is divided into four confessions, simple and shocking stories, which concern us all for that delicate humanity that ultimately makes all lives similar, deep down. This film is therefore a melancholy yet passionate song, a manifesto that manages to give a poetic identity to the aesthetic form, in a continuous exchange of meanings between image and words. “Kold” is a little gem you can’t miss.
