Remmy’s Review of Roma

Roma, Nov 2018 This film is in black and white. I watched it to save thousands of people from wasting their time on it. It won several academy awards, which means that I will probably never watch another winner, this movie was just plain bad. Spanish Subtitled

The photography was okay, the acting mediocre, there was no real storyline except for the idea of how poor people deal with rich people. I am sorry, all over the world people deal with this. So what made this film so special? Nothing. Their use on one very short scene in the movie of the kids hugging a nanny was to gain attention.

The film is set in the 1970’s however the clothing was not from that era. The clothing was modern, which leads me to believe they used B&W film to give the effect of older clothes. Honestly, I cannot say enough bad about this movie. Roma refers to Rome Italy, even back in 1970. When I did a translate Roma in Spanish means the same thing. The title has nothing to do with the film. I rate this 1 out of 5 stars, I will not buy it and I will not waste my time watching it again.

    This was obviously meant as a social commentary on how nannies are treated as sub-human? Or is it a film to make Hollywood stars feel guilty? I haven’t watched it yet and based on Remmy’s recommendation, I shouldn’t waste my time. As a reviewer, in order to decide on a star rating, I should watch it. I’ll hold off on my rating until I do.
