The plot of Lisa Bruhlmann’s movie Blue My Mind focuses on the story of a young girl who is transforming from a teenager to a hideous fish. The 15-year-old girl, Mia, has a desire to live according to the norms of the community and to associate with other teenagers regardless of their initial attitudes towards her.
Mia finds it difficult to know what is right to do since she comes from the mermaid world. She faces two significant hurdles: peer pressure as well as the need for acceptance. The story is neither a drama nor a comic but a way of narrating old tales in support of mermaid existence.
Fantasy, border, and horror are all involved in this movie which is based on beliefs about magic and the mermaid world. The girl enjoys a pleasant life until when her carefree attitude makes her go through a transformation which leads her to find her true identity.
The transformation leads to radical changes in her body. She tries to fight this reality until she realizes that there is nothing much she can do to stop the magic. Brühlmann combines the elements of peer pressure and the existence of the magical world into a single movie.
Mia (Luna Wedler), is full of anxiety since she will be studying in a new institution and move into another home. She has a strong desire to be accepted by her peers. As a result, she loses her parents’ support due to the breakdown of their norms.
She finds out several changes in her body. She tries to please her recent friends through various ways. Trying all the means to fit in by a girl who is different can be somehow torturous. The Gianna’s outlaw kinship found out by Mia and her rebellious, lousy girl band causes the manifestation of unpredictable female friendship power surges which taps Celine Sciamma with Girlhood.
These issues have occurred at different times and Blue My Mind combines them all into two hours or less with efficient subtle allusion and storytelling. Instead of telling what Mia is thinking about, Brühlmann concentrates and focuses on shadows falling on Wedler and her heartbroken gaze while the window penetrates some shining lights. Random shoplifting and early teen parties are not taken to be terrible, although, to them, sex has no meaning and they are not capable of facing the mental agony they are experiencing.
The cinematography in the movie is the beauty of Blue My Mind. Brühlmann manifests what you observe around after a blink of an eye, eyelashes flutter, and how light overflow into darkness and how one can see waves crashing in the ocean. Repetition of this is observed several times to add a taste of hypnotism. The movie’s star colour is blue, applying several shades to create strong effects. With all the scenes, Mia cannot be termed as a victim and Blue My Mind cannot also be said to be a tragedy.
Pawel Pawlikowski has produced a film for all those who have been struggling with love affairs. This film tells the story of a painful romantic relation or a reminder of something that happened at one time. Writer-director Pawel Pawlikowski finds an opportunity in the wars of the 40s to set Cold War which was the first film he did from 2013 Oscar-winner Ida. Reflecting on the lives of his parents as his inspiration, he has produced something that has period detail, rich and startlingly acted well. In the 50’s, England was very different from the late ’40s Poland. Although Wiktor plays piano miserably in Paris, he finds that he still has those problems he had back in Poland. Considering this Jazz’s subject, it is crucial to note that Pawlikowski does not play some of the greatest strengths belonging to Cold War in form of notes. There has never been experienced a good union of emotional and political despair. Most of the times, during the sequences of Polish, the camera of Pawlikowski’s seem thrillingly liquid. Shots of state inside a church that is ruined, or backstage, the music or events, is the same as down the Seine’s night cruise.
