Review by Zetes

One of the most important films of its time,

While Jonah is generally referred to as a comedy, it is not. It does have some, perhaps many, funny moments. Comedy is certainly a part of it. But the film is a serious and almost perfect meditation on the post-revolutionary era and what’s in store for the future.

It is also a document on the passage of time, the ways in which the world changes around us, the ways in which we as individuals evolve, or devolve.

The different characters negotiate their existences in different ways, with different philosophies. The mood of the film is very sad, but in the gentlest way possible. There’s a hope for the future, but it’s not a big one. It’s quite pessimistic.

The musical score, by Jean-Marie Senia, is exquisite, one of the best ever written for the cinema. The camera moves beautifully. 10/10.
