I’ve tried making gifs of Victoria Abril, and can’t quite, at least successful ones. She’s such a transparent and emotive actress that every move in her face counts, speeding her up diminishes what she has to offer, and she can’t be camped up, or at least I can’t, which in a paradoxical way is a measure of her greatness. The gif, rather than bringing something else out, diminishes what she herself creates. A thought.
When Javier was hubba hubba (in a small bit for High Heels, as Victoria Abril announces she’s killed her husband)
When a gif doesn’t quite work as well as the original
The rhymes in the sound being just as important as the repetition in image, if not more so.
What’s your idea of heaven? No News from God makes The Exorcist’s idea of it come true. I think my idea of heaven might also be singing samba to an adoring public in a Paris nightclub looking like Victoria Abril does here.
