The Rider

O noua postare din seria Fashion& Films, adica un nou film recomandat, dar si o tinuta inspirata de acesta.


EN: A new blog post from the Fashion& Films series, which means another recommended movie, but also an outfit inspired by it.

In cadrul Festivalului de Film American Independent am vazut filmul “The Rider” (regia  Chloé Zhao), care spune povestea lui Brady Jandreau, un cowboy care sufera un accident grav si este pus in situatia de a alege intre a renunta definitiv la calarie si rodeo sau a continua, cu riscul de a-si pierde viata. Brady Jandreau nu e un personaj inventat, ci este unul si acelasi cu cel din viata reala. Adica Brady isi joaca practic povestea vietii lui in acest film, in care nu apare niciun actor profesionist. Tatal, sora, cel mai bun prieten, absolut toti actorii din film sunt “personajele” adevarate din viata lui Brady Jandreau. Ati putea crede ca unui actor ii este mai usor sa isi joace propria viata, sa fie acealasi in fata camerei cu cel din spatele ei. Ca nu trebuie sa inventeze nimic nou, trebuie doar “sa se joace pe el”. Dar de fapt este extrem de complicat chiar si pentru un actor profesionist. Iar marea izbanda a filmului (premiat la Cannes in 2017 printre altele) i se datoreaza in primul rand regizoarei, care a avut acest curaj nebun sa lucreze exclusiv cu neprofesionisti, reusind totusi sa creeze o atmosfera incredibil de intima. De obicei, atunci cand un regizor alege sa filmeze cu neprofesionisti, care isi fac activitatea in mediul lor, ai senzatia ca aparatul de filmat e pus undeva la mare distanta si ca tu, ca spectator poti analiza/judeca detasat actiunea. Dar filmul acesta te aduce fix printre acesti tineri – cowboy – rodeo boys, iti rezerva un loc la focul lor de tabara, altul pe sa, in timpul unei plimbari la galop prin tinuturile aride ale Americii, atat de aproape de visurile, dar si temerile lor cele mai mari, incat, dupa ce vezi “The Rider”,  te vei gandi mereu altfel la acesti tineri americani.

Iar tinuta inspirata de acest film este compusa din: camasa Tex, sort piele vintage si ciocate vintage ambele luate din Barcelona (unde gasiti unele dintre cele mai bune boutique-uri vintage din Europa), curea de la Vintage Couture Shop.

EN: During the Independent American Film Festival, I saw the movie “The Rider” (directed by Chloe Zhao), which tells the story of Brady Jandreau, a cowboy who suffers a severe accident and is faced with the decision between giving up riding and rodeo for good or going on, with the risk of losing his life. Brady Jandreau is not a fictional character, he’s the same one as in real life. Meaning Brady plays his own life story in this film, in which there are no professional actors. The father, sister, best friend, absolutely every actor in the movie are the real “characters” in the life of Brady Jandreau. You might think that it’s much easier for an actor to play his own life, to be the same in front or behind the camera. That he doesn’t have to make anything up, he jus has to “play himself”. But actually it’s extremely complicated even for a professional actor. And the great success of this movie (awarded at Cannes in 2017 among others) is mainly due to the director, who displayed some crazy courage to work exclusively with non professionals, while still managing to create an unbelievably intimate atmosphere. Usually, when a director chooses to work with non professionals, who do their thing in their own environment, you get the feeling that the camera is set somewhere far away and that you, as a spectator, can analyze/ judge the action detached. But this film takes you straight between these young men- cowboys- rodeo boys, reserves you a seat at their bond fire, another one in the saddle, during a ride along the dry areas of America, so close to their dreams, but also greatest fears, that, after you watch “The Rider”, you’ll always think about these young Americans.

And the outfit inspired by this film is made up by: Tex shirt, vintage leather shorts and vintage cowboy boots, both bought from Barcelona (where you can find some of the best vintage boutiques in Europe), belt from Vintage Couture Shop.
