Memories is a 2019 feature film written and 고소득알바 directed by Joanna Hogg. The memorabilia had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 27, 2019.

The film is considered a unique work, a major achievement, a true and moving portrayal of artistic self-discovery.
As the genius Joanna Hogg makes clear, making a film is hard enough, even if you don’t draw material from your own personal tragedy. Learning to experience pain, let alone analyze it remotely, takes time, and time is never on the side of directors. In order to completely escape the pain of Hoggs’ stunt double, Julie must also re-immerse herself in her film program, all too often overlooked in his chaotic time with her.
The teachers suggested that Julie choose a topic closer to her experience, but when Julie turned to the profile in the second part, they seemed horrified, suddenly looking back nostalgically at the serious social dimension of her first idea. Julie meets Anthony, a wealthy man working in the Foreign Office who moves in with her after her neighbors move out. As this latest graduation project draws to a close, Hoggs’ stuntman meets Patrick outside a movie theater in Soho.
The modest Honor Swinton Byrne once again plays Julie, an English film student at an elegant art school. Honor Swinton Byrne) brings vital unpredictability to Souvenir Part II. Souvenir Part II ends with Hoggs’ stunt double celebrating his 30th birthday. Much of The Souvenir Part II is about Hoggs’ young alter ego’s decision to make some sort of cinematic memorial to Anthony as his graduation film.
At the beginning of the wonderful souvenir II, the wounds of the deceased have not yet healed. It may sound a little narcissistic, but Souvenir Part II never felt parochial or solipsistic. At any given moment, you never know where Souvenir Part II is going.
One of the most delightful surprises of Souvenir 2 is that it’s a sadder and heavier film than Joanna Hoggs’ Souvenir, as well as a freer and more fun movie. “Use” is a bold move, reminiscent of “Singing in the Rain” and “Fellinis 8 1/2” – not the comparison I thought to make after reviewing “The Souvenir”. The Souvenir is Hoggs’ first film in which he travels through time, and The Souvenir does so by conveying the intensity of the memorized items and conversations. These words apply equally to Hoggs The Souvenir Part II, a project that, like Fosses, turns raw data from the lives of its creators into an exploration of the artistic ability to restore and bring Hoggs The Souvenir Part II to life.
In the second part of Hoggs’ most personal and more accessible work, the word “souvenir” has a more metatextual meaning. Joanna Hoggs is currently working on Ghost Stories, her first foray into “genre” films. Directed by Joanna Hoggs, David Lynch’s Inner Empire book will be released by Firefly Press in November as part of the Decadent Edition series. The talented director is the talented Joanna Hogg, who conceived of her semi-autobiographical drama Souvenir as a two-part opera of her semi-autobiographical drama Souvenir.
What we don’t see often enough are talented directors working outside the mainstream and telling intimate stories that span multiple films. Some are good; most of them are the studio’s cash flow, blandly crafted and mechanically pared down for an audience deemed not too smart or demanding. Notably, these are sequels that don’t always materialize in a market that makes them justify their existence.
His semi-autobiographical drama The Souvenir didn’t draw a lot of viewers, and the sequel could see even fewer viewers. Calling “its equally excellent sequel” the best sequel I’ve seen this year and one of the best films I’ve seen this year, period, would be completely accurate and completely inappropriate. Not exactly a sequel, the film is best understood as the second panel of a cinematic diptych. As for the movie Julie is making, sometimes it feels like we’re watching a Pirandello-style behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of The Souvenir, viewed through a kaleidoscopic labyrinth of self-reflection.
More importantly, The Souvenir Part II shows Julie finding herself, accepting her future as a director, even as she struggles with the ghosts of her past. Throughout the story, Julie will return to her beautiful country estate, lost in sunshine, flowers, and family outings. Julie, a film student, plans to make a film about a boy, his mother and their life in the city of Sunderland.
Many of his classmates from The Souvenir return in The Souvenir Part II, now in bigger roles and with more ambition; like Hoggs’ stunt double, they are busy completing their graduation films, projects that their cohort is involved in. Inseparable from his “Souvenir 2019”, the first continues and ends. A semi-autobiographical account of Joanna Hogg’s film school experiences, The Souvenir starring Honor Swinton Byrne, Tom Burke and Tilda Swinton.
