Have you ever seen two horses in love dance the tango and pamper each other in an enchanting snowy landscape? 24 frames is a film that defining stunning is an understatement. The spiritual testament of one of the greatest directors in the world. With this work of art Kiarostami has overcome the physical and metaphysical limit of the cinematographic language by creating a unique work in the world of cinema, something sublime never seen or experienced by any director before. A tribute to cinema, which is the well-known language by 24 frames per second. A masterpiece that if you are not a lover of aesthetic art you may not understand or find boring. But know it is your limit, because we are facing with something immense and unattainable. So why not refine your taste and sensitivity? After such a new invention in the cinematographic language, I can only agree with Jean Luc Godard (<< Cinema begins with D.W. Griffith and ends with Abbas Kiarostami >>) and confess that I consider this film one of the most beautiful seen in my life, as i have rarely felt a sense of overwhelming ecstasy and rapture as in watching this film
The director takes 24 photographs (a painting by Bruegel the elder, and 23 photographs of him) and imagining what exists before and after the photographic freeze instant, he gives a compelling and poetic animation with the post production. I am looking forward to the debate to find out which is your favorite frame!
