Downhill

After escaping an avalanche during a family skiing vacation, a married couple faces problems in marriage, being forced to reevaluate their family life and how they feel for each other. Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell are the protagonists of a comedy with a poignant humor. It’s not a comedy, I don’t know why it’s described that way. It is a remake of Force Majeure (2014). As usual, the first version was better. After a stressful event in which the father acts completely surprisingly, the family splits into two camps. The film wants to emphasize the possible slippage in a marriage in which routine and boredom intervened...

Locked Down

The film reflects the reality we face: quarantine, pandemic .. It has a slow pace, the action takes place mostly indoors .. The soundtrack is very weak, the action does not arouse the curiosity of the viewer, most are trivial dialogues, eventually increases easy pace but it’s not something significant and that diamond theft is superficial, it doesn’t touch the essence of this fact..The chemistry between the two talented actors is very good but it’s a pity that the film was approached like this, to arouse your interest ....

Undine

Berlin, nowadays. Undine, who has a doctorate in history, works at the Senate Department for Urban Development and Housing in the building in K√∂llnischer Park and presents city tours for German and international visitors. When her boyfriend, Johannes, announced to her in a cafe near her workplace that he wanted to break up with her, the aroused young woman … was overcome by a curse, as she was destined to avenge her friend’s betrayal with his death and return to the water in which he had once been. But Undine resists this decision to take revenge and does not want to kill her boyfriend or leave Berlin. Coincidentally, Undine soon met Christoph, who worked as an industrial diver on the walls of the Rhineland and Bergisches dams. Undine falls in love with him and, despite the long-distance relationship, they both have a happy time together. Christoph is impressed by her upbringing and shows him his underwater world, which she already knew. On the other hand, Undine loves her job and the work she does. When he accidentally meets Johannes again, who seems to be in an unhappy relationship and wants to get Undine back, he disappoints him without a word. A few hours later, Christoph asks her on the phone if she was expecting anyone the day they met. Undine also denies this when Christoph told her that if you love each other, you should not lie. Undine can admit this, but he can’t erase Christoph’s mistake of saying those words. Christoph suffers a diving accident in the pool and is in the hospital, being declared brain dead. The thought of the phone call and the words spoken by Monika, Christoph’s co-worker, irritated her. Undine goes back to Berlin and sneaks into the house of Johannes and his girlfriend, who are waiting for his parents to visit. She drowns her ex-boyfriend while swimming in the pool and returns to the water a few hours later. With the murder of Johannes, Undine breaks the curse and Christoph wakes up from his coma. Monday later, he goes to Berlin to look for her. He can’t find Undine, who, according to a colleague, was independent. Two years later, Christoph has a relationship with his colleague Monika, who is expecting a baby from him. He returns to his previous accident site, to the pool, for a workload. As he welds underwater, it seems to him that he felt Undine’s hand on him and that he saw her. However, he cannot verify the existence of what he thought he saw, using underwater images. The night secretly returns to the pool and looks for her. Monika secretly follows him and is shocked when she sees her boyfriend disappearing underwater without diving equipment. In fact, Christoph finds Undine and they both hold hands for a moment. He leaves the lake and returns to Monika. In his hand he holds a small figure of a diver that he had once given to Undine...
