Et voilà! For the second year in a row AsinoVola’s newsroom has something to say about 2018 best films. Once again there is no “single winner”, however its is evident a certain fascination for the Far East, a cinematography that ceaselessy gives us a breath of fresh air in terms of cinematographic languages, styles and plots.
