La La Land – don’t miss seeing the new Casablanca

Thanks to its combination of romance, beautiful musics and cultural connotations, La La Land by Damien Chazelle is definitely one of the best movie I have watched this year.

The passionate and dramatic love story between the dissatisfied jazz musician Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and the aspiring actress Mia (Emma Stone) will moved you in a way that only Rick and Ilsa from Casablanca have been able to… Love, though profound and overwhelming, cannot replace the natural human desire of self-realization.


Stunning choreographies, musics and 1950s costumes accompany the blossoming of this love making the musical unique and enchanting.

I believe that the encounter between the two passions of the characters, jazz and acting, has been able to represent the greatest metaphor of the musical as a movie genre.
The historical intense plot of Casablanca is so made slightly “softer” through the insouciance of dance and music.


Should I go?

My advice is absolutely to experience it at the cinema – It is only £9 with the student discount!

Enjoy the view.



Monday’s cinema

Monday is my day-off from University and, when I don’t have too much to study, I like to spend this day visiting an art gallery or going to the cinema.
TODAY I finally go to watch La La Land by Damien Chazelle at ODEON Tottenham Court.
