It’s Episode 92! Kelly and Sam from the Curzon Film Podcast join us for Kelly’s choice the award-winning 2018 film Roma from Alfonso Cuarón.

Roma is a semi-autobiographical memoir to his childhood in 1970s Mexico. Cuarón wrote, directed, produced and edited this film and is unsurprisingly his most personal film to date. It wouldn’t be out of place to declare Roma a masterpiece.

It tells the story of Cleo the live-in housekeeper of a family in Mexico against the backdrop of the Corpus Christi Massacre and the marital breakdown of the parents. Roma moves between banal normality, washing the floors and cleaning the house to extreme drama, a still birth and near drowning and moments of joy in the everyday with visits to the cinema and holidaying with the family.

Scores

Roma was unfortunately let down by the small screen score – it’s black and white cinematography deserves the big screen and the scores reflect this, overall Roma scores a very respectable 4.3.
