Directed well; nice sense of atmosphere with great music to aid in that. Acted well, with a nice supernatural spin to the romance. I didn't see any glaring flaws but I also don't think that it had the emotional oomph that something like this needed, so it ended up being merely good instead of great.

i added MILLE SOLEILS 7 years ago and it still only has three ratings, so it's been nice to see the feature debut of this talented denis disciple get hype, even if it'd likely work better as another short. the simplistic script is redundant next to images like a seamless shot-reverse shot through a passing train, the strobe lights of an empty club dancing over a lost girl's face, or the haunting motifs of deathly water and righteous fire and something i won't spoil right out of tourneur.

Slow paced impressionistic piece along the same lines with the surrealism of Djibril Mambety, which leaves a "tropique triste" aftertaste as well. Mati's zombie metaphor is an accurate, unforced spiel that amounts to saying that the global south is a huge living-dead, a surplus population. Yet those living dead can haunt the dead-living, the rentier class everywhere (rich man in Dakar), like the ghost in Hamlet or Communist Manifesto. Having said that, I wish I could find more than that. Decent.

The visual direction was beautiful! That's really all I need right now in my life in a depressing place (literally and psychologically).

There are scattered moments of ethereal beauty which are matched by equally effective eeriness, but I hate it when sex is made to be the most profound event of the human experience, and the possession aspect was uncomfortable throughout, though it could be argued that there is commentary there as well: the ghosts of murdered loved ones keeping us up at night, seeking for retribution. Moving, but not powerfully; beautiful, but not exquisite: in the end, a unique but not masterful picture.

Atlantics is director Mati Diop's feature debut, but it works with the certainty and poise of a director's 15th feature. The film's 104 minutes feel crisp and clean without a frame going to waste.

The one point where this strays from a (very) ordinary story didn't really work for me, and visuals, acting and music all had their weaknesses. And yet I am always excited to see films from locales we don't usually get to see!

A little too rough around the edges, but magical and peculiar enough to sincerely hope that this is the start of a wonderful filmmaking career.

When you think this is going the typical festival-bait way of "third world social drama" and stuff, it turns 180 degrees to become an engrossing, sensorial, desperately beautiful and melancholic supernatural romance about a girl torn between a rich and a poor, construction workers that try to escape by the sea, die and return by possessing women left behind -- or the detective investigating an arson at Ada's promised fiancè house -- and the search of oneself. 2019's greatest last shot.

wherein the girls all do what their boyfriends tell them to do—even from beyond the grave! meh.

Lovely, if perhaps too elliptical, romance told in the shadow of global capitalism.

The sights and sounds of an oceanic motif are simple, but comprehensive. A looming, ethereal projection of an economic gulf and great waves of longing. At once a sprawl of possibility and an insurmountable barrier. Perhaps this film isn't as tremendously moving as a viewer might like from a romance or a story about the lot of the disadvantaged, but it is unique, moody, and right-minded in its assessment of injustice.

A beautifully shot character drama that slowly reveals itself to be a different kind of story than might be expected.

I liked this a lot. Great atmosphere and score with an original story. I'm not 100% sure it all makes sense, but I enjoyed watching it. It's an impressive feature debut from Diop.

With an ethereal atmosphere that reminds of something like Picnic at Hanging Rock, Mati Diop gives a often terrifying look at her characters striving for something better. The photography is delicate and the score is really effective in quite an impressive ghost story.

a slow and introspective film that spends a lot of time building vibes by the ocean. the supernatural twist was really interesting and touching in its own way
