Paula (2016) KINO 2017
Covering the period when at 24 she was given an ultimatum by her father- get married or get a job- and taking her to her untimely death PAULA is a glorious portrait of an artist as force of nature. Paula does what she feels because she knows its right. PAula doesn't get a job, though she does eventually marry.
A mix of old school story telling with modern frankness PAULA is a refreshing reinvention of the artist bio. This is a film that feels lived in, thanks to the gorgeous cinematography and the note perfect performance by Carla Juri who seems to be possessed by Paula.
This must see film is the opening film of this years KINO and is highly recommened
