Like architectural minimalism, Minimal Cinema is founded on the following concept: “Less is more.” (Ludwig Mies van der Rohe)
Truth is all it matters. Any Minimal Film is a genuine and sincere piece of work, brutal in its realism and always pointing to the spectator reflections, who was by now used to trifling and consoling movies.
Small things that happen in life are the keystone of the diegesis, and to them is left the duty to supply reflection cues on life’s biggest topics.
Minimal Cinema is founded on image semantics and their incisiveness, eluding the didactic use of words.
Minimal Cinema doesn’t produce entertainment, it doesn’t lead to recreation.
