Nocturnal Animals

SPANISH VERSION

SYNOPSIS

A well-known artist receives a book, writen by her ex-husband, called Nocturnal Animals. It is dedicated to her and narrates a dramatic story which achieves to touch her. As the book is read, it is also represented as long as the movie is being developed, tell us why they are not together anymore. Ver trailer.

OVERVIEW AND EXPECTATIONS

Story which starts in an unusual way and is developed also in an unusual manner. It shows different stages of the characters’ lives, how they have dealt with their relationships and the consequences of their decisions. In general, the title does not suggest anything to interpret but if one see the trailer, it will be difficult to guess what is going to happen. Definitely, reality overcomes expectations from my point of view and I would recommend it as a movie that everybody should see.

¡SPOILERS ALERT! ¡SPOILERS ALERT!

FROM HERE THERE WILL BE CONTENT THAT TALKS DIRECTLY ABOUT SITUATIONS IN THE MOVIE, REASON WHY IF YOU WANT TO WATCH IT BEFORE TO CONTINUE IS A GOOD MOMENT TO DO THAT. WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED YOU CAN COME BACK TO FINISH YOUR CONTRIBUTION OTHERWISE IF YOU DO NOT MIND SPOILERS YOU WILL BE MORE THAN WELCOME TO CONTINUE. THE IDEA IS NOT TO TELL THE WHOLE MOVIE BECAUSE IT WILL BE ANNOYING FROM ME WITH YOU GUYS.

THE BEST SCENES

  1. The opening of the movie, in which some women with unusual appearances, dancing and exposing themselves to an art gallery, is greatly original and it deserves to be underlined.
  2. When Tony’s wife and daughter are taken by the bad guys in his car and he cannot do anything but look them. It is one of the most dramatic scenes of the movie because after that he does not see them alive again.
  3. When Laura and India’s bodies are found embraced each other in a couch into the ruins of an old building, is the other most dramatic scene. It generates rage and impotency feelings, connecting us with Tony. An excellent scene, even though it is crude.
  4. The final scene, when Susan is waiting that Edward arrives, is stressful and tensioning because we want to know what happened to him and whether he will come or not.

THE END

This is a movie in which one wonders all the time whether the book’s story is a real story or is a fantasy. However, I think it is an ending which invites us to analyse the facts and create our own one. That is why I am going to give you my own interpretation of the end. For my the book’s story is the method that Edward found to let Susan know, what he felt, when she left him and aborted the baby that they were having. Laura and India dying, is the representation of his feelings after he saw Susan with another man and the abortion of his little baby. At the end of Nocturnal Animals, Tony dies after he had done justice because of the death of his family. Leaving Susan planted, he wanted to tell her that she had died for him and vice-versa. In other words, it was the way to do justice for what she did to him in the past.  In addition, he demonstrates that he was able to create a good story, even though talking about himself, a thing that she had criticised when she read his books.
