| It's a movie that asks to watch twice.
From a general point of view 'Hold Me' deserve attention. The history is catchy and you feel some sort of sympathy with Hanna from the very beginning of the movie. Also, it was very clear to me that there was an attempt to escape from cliché narratives or values, leaving the spectator free to develop their own thought. From this point of view, it is a movie which I recommend to watch. However three main points (which are interconnected) could have been a developed better in my opinion, and which can be summarized in a lack of general plainness in the narrative: 1. In plenty of moments I missed some sort of fluency in the words of the characters. In other words, the dialogues were used several times in a very straight way to frame the thought, the values and the state of mind of the characters. Such strategy seemed too didactic and unnatural; 2. the rhythm in the first half of the movie. Somehow I felt distressed, because the cutting between scenes were sometimes enforcing the slightly unnatural narrative of the movie; 3. The work of the actors. In this sense I believe that their acting was very impaired by the points above. However, it is important to say, none of these three points make the movie a bad one or one unworthy to watch. I saw some details which I believe be some references to Ingmar Bergman's piece 'Cries and Whispers': similar thematic, similar flow and even techniques.
