This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
.. and Lisa got her wings up.. Last scene has been made in a way which family itself a wing and arms crossed, hold Lisa’s back. It deserves 3.5. I kinda like the movie and relations among anti-characters on daily basis. Surely, some scenes looked like a small fragments of horror and built on a high voltage caused a bit confusion in the story, in general it successfully gives the message.
it is a depiction of the truth like a fairy tale.Everything is developing very fast ... and it looks like a film made by a talentless commercial director. This was the first film of him I ve ever watched...
Still thinking what to make of this movie. Is there a deeper philosophical meaning behind a little boy with wings or is Ricky a metaphor for all the highs and lows parents go through?
Besides that Ricky is not an outstanding movie by Ozon.
As a film, it is not that good. I watched much better films of Ozon such as Swimming Pool, 8 Femmes. The character development and the story telling could be more convincing. Still, how the mother copes with the loss of her baby was touching.
Le merveilleux percute le quotidien d'un monde prolétaire ou le temps est voué au travail et aux difficultés même l'amour est suspecte. De cette collision avec l'inimaginable l'émotion prodigieuse de la mère se transforme vite en soucis. La classe ouvrière n'ira pas au paradis ni dans les contes de wal Disney. Un constat courageux et froid signé du talentueux Ozon.
