Movie: L'Enfant

I watched the French movie, L' Enfant tonight. Generally speaking the movie was pretty good: a simple plot, simple structure, no music, etc. One of those films that I call them pure cinema. It remind me Kiarostami's Ten that is another great example of that style. Something great about the style is its effectiveness in influencing the audience right at the moment of watching. In L' Enfant there were parts that I deeply felt the sadness and loneliness of the main character. And it all comes from the powerful picture with no music and special effect. In this pure cinema, unlike many of the mainstream movies, the director is an artist and not an art engineer.
