As much as the look of Gravity is stunning, with camera rotations often used to emphasize the feeling of panic character Sandra, what draws
the most attention in the film is the field director before such a challenge. It is thanks to the excellent visual and sound effects that this
story could be told in this way, with about 90% of the scenes in full universe. However, more than a mere technical exercise, Alfonso Cuarón
also offers a lesson in narrative from the point of view of the tension. There are several moments where the viewer is entranced by the
display on the big screen, with a mixture of anxiety and curiosity about how this scene was done. Really impressive.
Amidst so many technical aspects, there is the beautiful work of the actors. George Clooney is the comic relief, the experienced astronaut who
focuses on what should be done in the emotional aspect, while Sandra Bullock gives life to a character that has suffered a revelation in the
chaos. Both make up their characters very well, bringing humanity to this bleak scenario. Noteworthy is also the brief symbolism implemented
by Cuarón throughout the film, as the fetal position that Sandra takes on particular scene and the actual outcome of the story, in a clear
allusion to their own humanity (and also an interesting counterpoint to the classic early 2001 - a Space Odyssey).
For all these reasons and many others that were not mentioned not to spoil the pleasure that is to follow the development of the story,
Gravity is an excellent film that deserves to be seen in a theater very well equipped in relation to sound and image. The 3D further extends
the sense of immersion experienced by astronauts in this universe, not only due to camera movements applied but also the vastness itself
caused by the effect of depth of technology. Strong bet for the Oscars 2014.
Science fiction is going on in space, in orbit, 600 miles high. In it, a team of scientists and astronauts install new parts on the Hubble
telescope when it’s alert: a cloud of debris is coming in high speed position. In minutes, the entire security of the ship is gone - and there
are only Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and Mission Commander, Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney), helpless wandering through space.
Cuarón is here the type of film that is usually seen in low budget: only two characters who must overcome insurmountable situation. However
extrapolates this idea - usually a creative minimalist solution for a tight budget - employing it for grandiloquent manner. And be visually
breathtaking (especially in 3D), explosions in zero gravity and long and distressing plans uncut wandering inside out of the helmets of the
characters as they discuss their situation.
