My opinion on The Age of Adaline

Hi guys! How are you?
I recently saw a movie that struck me very much and, surprisingly, is not an adaptation, not a documentary, nor a sequel, not a prequel or anything; It is a 100% original story.

READ IN SPANISH
LEE ESPAÑOL

This is The Age of Adaline, the third film directed by Lee Toland Kriege, a director who, though new in cinema, knows where to put his eye, besides that I think he has nothing to envy big studios as this particular movie left me surprised.
The general idea is very well crafted, note that there is a solid and well worked script, so no complaints there. Because of the genre, I think it lost a little drama, the complexes Adaline could suffer to see that everyone moves forward with their lives and she is the Pan Peter, but overall is well achieved the effect they wanted to make.
I cannot help thinking that a series of two or three seasons could be quite good. It is rare to get an original script these days, and although the idea of ​​eternal youth is not new at all, the way they used it this time was new to me.
The performances were impeccable, especially Blake Lively's. There was so much elegance in each of her scenes she gave me the impression of being a young girl and an old woman at the same time. Subtle, delicate, protective, educated, and more adjectives that escape me.
Michiel Huisman lived up to his partner, and I found it a nice touch they used a man with facial hair as the protagonist, breaking the scheme that the leading man should be shaved men. The emotions he was suposed to convey were spot on, as well as his dialogues.
The photography is excellent. Not as much natural light as I wanted, but the lighting, colors, planes and transitions from one scene to the other are very well made too. To finish polishing, I would have preferred darker tones in certain scenes for dramatic effect and semiotics agreement.
As for music composition and sound, I can't say they were salient rather little more than a safe bet, although I admit it was consistent with what was seen on more than one occasion. I think they didn't take this issue as seriously as they should.
Finally, special effects, although they are very, VERY scarce in this film, they are spot on, creating and releasing tension, at the right times. Normally I wouldn't be satisfied, but the mixture of fantasy and reality is so well made, I feel they gave the necessary dose.
For me, The Age of Adaline is a story that is so much worth it than many other movies, a good surprise and the proof I needed to believe again in the cinema. I hope you see it or leave comments below if you already did!

Greetings and hugs!
