Once upon a time, theaters used to be opened in France. That’s when I saw Tenet with my sister and mother. It was one of the last movies I got to see before theaters closed again, and they haven’t opened up since then.
Armed with only a word, Tenet, and decided to fight for our world, the Protagonist journeys through the world of international espionage. His mission will make him go into a dimension outside of time. And yet, it’s not a story about time travel.
Or you can watch the trailer right here.
As I said, this movie has a special place in my heart. Not because of the movie itself, but because I got to see it in theaters a month before they closed down, here in France. And also because I saw it with my mom, who lives in Hong Kong but managed to be there for a few weeks last September. Now onto the review for the actual movie.
Before I actually saw it, I read many reviews only talking about how complicated the movie was and how it was hard to follow—pure Nolan genius. On the other hand, I found it really simple to follow, as did my family. I don’t know if it’s because we watch many time travel/SciFi movies. But it wasn’t as hard as many people made it out to be.
Tenet is one of my favorite Christopher Nolan movies, mainly because of the cast. First, they had 3 Harry Potter actors, which I can of liked! But mostly, they are all terrific actors, and they made me really invested in the movie—more than the story itself.
I also really enjoyed Tenet because, even though it’s an open ending, it really answers many questions, which is not always the case with Nolan. I won’t tell you more about the ending, though. It will spoil the fun!
Should you see Tenet?
As I said, it’s my favorite Nolan movie, so you should definitely see it. It has suspense, action, and even some love in it. And the ending is one of the best ones I’ve seen in quite some time!
