Los versos del olvido Reviews:

"The globe is gone," wrote Paul Celan "I gotta carry you." These words haunt and embolden the scenic poetry that unravels in this enchanting film. An elderly cemetery undertaker with curious scars and a remarkably particular memory, tends to a tiny lettuce garden as well as the graves, histories and memories of folks long gone. Strange things start to happen including a visit by secret police in the night with the body of an unknown young woman. The whale earrings she wears are revealing, for whales are earth's messengers and their eerie calls start to resound in the depths of the sky. A storm is gathering and while the elderly boy seems to have a central role to enjoy in it, he does not appear overly concerned.The trauma and darkness of past and show oppression combine with the grace and transcendence of the human and natural globe in this brilliant, pretty puzzle of a story. It is lovely as it is heartbreaking. Ambient sounds of footsteps, cats, crickets, doves, stray dogs, bees and more, are infused throughout and comprise much of the wordless yet saying dialogue. The main actor is excellent for the role and his stellar performance carries the film. While the movie is slow paced and obscure, it is thought-provoking and wonderful. The Iranian director chose Chile as the setting for the film, which really should be anywhere. Seen at the Toronto International Movie Festival.


What a delicious movie "Oblivion Verses" is with the perfectly cast Spanish actor Juan Margallo, born in Spain in 1940, who carries the whole movie at ease by speaking very little, saying the storyline mostly by his wonderfully expressive facial expressions.So as the previous reviewer wrote, the elderly cemetery undertaker can't remember his name, but he remembers cute much everything else down to photographic details. He actually lives a quiet life by attending his tiny lettuce garden and taking care of an ancient morgue, beautifully filmed somewhere in Chile to make an atmosphere that doesn't quite exist in Europe or America. (The Iranian director Alireza Khatami operates mostly between France and United States.) In fact, the building of the administration office of the cemetery looks like an Aztec monument, which gives a rather futuristic dystopian impression.The elderly boy then somehow gets involved with wrong government officials, taken to a remote place, and gets shot rather early on in the film. This is where you receive the concept that this is really a delicious fairy tale in which he would simply walk back home through the night over curious landscapes, blindfolded, his hands still tied in the back. When he finally gets home, he just takes a shower and goes to bed.When the elderly boy gets buried alive into the basement of the morgue where everybody gets mysteriously lost, our protagonist once again simply walks out of it by breaking launch what appears to be a coffin in the cemetery in the back of the morgue, taking out 4 or 5 another boys with him who seem to have been also lost. When he finally gets home, he then just takes a shower and goes to bed.Toward the end of the movie when the elderly boy tries to break into the morgue from which he was forced out, his long lost son appears to support him. You know that he was dead long ago if you were watching the movie carefully, because there was a police report a tiny earlier in the movie that bore his name that the elderly boy would alter. But the only indication of his dead son's appearance is communicated by Juan Margallo's hero by simply dropping his crowbar from incredulity, frozen for a moment, shaken for the first time. No words are spoken, but all somehow feels natural and moving (if you receive it), and he leaves the morgue by a hearse without any further interaction with his son, perhaps only being content that he has seen him. But he does look at him once more in the rearview mirror as he leaves, and the mirror curiously turns into black & white.The elderly boy is curiously unconcerned with all this or the unspecified turbulent political cases that have brought in many dead bodies to his ancient morgue. But he does become determined to give a proper burial service to a body of a young woman, and this incidentally is the backbone of this film. But it doesn't really matter, because it's a sort of movie that consists of many interesting plots one after other that hold the viewers amazed (if you receive most of them). There are also stunningly beautifully shots through out this movie that might be missed if you are not careful, and for that matter, all the shots are deliberate and highly calculated with fairly clear messages. There are also humorous scenes where lemons roll down on a road on excellent trajectories, or a cat who comes out from a window and poses at a excellent position right in the middle of the film, all of which just wouldn't happen unless the director has shot variety of takes looking for excellent compositions. (Or are they pc aided graphics? You can't really say nowadays, can you?) Then there is the whale that flies in the sky, riding the storm, bringing the rain even into the interior of a post office: I can't quite understand what it was that the elderly boy was trying to mail, but the flying whale clearly has an trouble with it.Finally, if you don't quite understand the ending of the film, you might recall the taxi driver who brings a guest to the morgue at the beginning of the movie and announces, "It is the end". But then other taxi driver who brings our protagonist to the beach toward the end of the movie announces, "This is the beginning." There is also this blind gravedigger who says a storyline each time he digs a hole, and his very first storyline is about a 76 years old boy who irons his blue shirt and leaves home to catch the earliest bus next morning... The gravedigger then concludes his storyline by saying, "It's a nice ending for a film."


"Los Versos del Olvido" is a fresh movie, a collaboration between 4 countries, 3 European countries, but the key is probably Chile here because the movie is entirely in Spanish. It took home some decent awards already and this was written and directed by Alireza Khatami. It runs for minimally over 90 mins and details a powerful lead performance by Juan Margallo, but that is almost the only positive thing I can tell here. The core event is decent too, the key plot, but the political aspects feel shoddy at times already and everything revolving aroound that rarely drew me in at all. Not even close. This also takes away from this film being a decent hero study unfortunately and I thought the talent was definitely there for making something that should have turned out method better than it eventually did. One large trouble I had with this were all the symbolisms and metaphors. It relies too much on these I have to tell and forgets about quality storyline saying at the same time. Pity. And that's only these I saw during the first (and probably only) watch. I guess you will search many more on rewatch. Sure the final shot is beautiful, maybe the greatest of the film, but it just cannot create me forget how much Khatami was struggling to receive there and that it just felt for the sake of it and for those who play satisfied spectacular endings and instantly forget about medicrities, weaknesses even that werfe before that. And there sure were really many here. There were a several nice shots too, for example the very first one with the one guy digging and the smartphone conversation going with it. But these are clearly in the minority. Maybe it's a movie you have to see more than once, maybe even more than twice to appreciate it, but honestly one time was one time too many for me already. i can somewhat see though that awards bodies liked it because it felt really indie. But not really good, not even nice to be honest. I give it a thumbs-down and my recommendation is to skip the watch here. Watrch something else instead.
