A pointer toward irlande cahier bleu (2023) Fantasia 2023

This is more a pointer than a review. I say this because the film never really clicked with me. This is in no way a statement of quality, rather it is simply to say that the film wasn’t my cup of tea.

According to the festival write up the film  is the story of a regular guy who becomes a great basketball player when he dreams. The reality is a bit more complicated as he jumps through realities.

More art house than grind house or even typical movie house, the film is very formal  and very mannered. While I liked the story, I like some of the twists the film takes but the mannered nature of the presentation didn’t work for me. On the other hand I know a number of people who would eat this film up, which is why I won’t review the film.

Worth a look if you like art house mind game films.
