However, subtlety is not something that is in Christopher Nolan’s plans for the future, “I feel attracted to working on a large scale because I know how fragile the opportunity is to mobilize these resources (..) I know there are so many filmmakers in the world who would give anything to have the resources I have gathered, and I feel I have a responsibility to use them in the most productive and interesting way.” When asked about his recent favorites, Nolan didn’t hesitate to point out “Aftersun” (2022), by Charlotte Wells It is “Past lives” (2023), by Celine Song. For the filmmaker, we are faced with two films that he considers very “beautiful” in a subtle way.

“Aftersun” is a drama that finds Sophie (Frankie Corio) reflecting on the joy and melancholy of the holidays he spent with his father (Paul Mescal) 20 years earlier. Memories real and imagined fill in the gaps as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t know.
