SUNSHINE SUSIE (THE OFFICE GIRL)

FIVE STARS

GB 1931, Directed by: Victor Saville, with: Renate Müller, Jack Hulbert, Owen Nares, Morris Harvey.

Susie Surster (Renate Müller) comes to Vienna to work as a typist. She has nothing, but her self-confidence. She is that kind of hard-working, light-hearted woman, that can accomplish everything she wants, just by being herself. She manages to get a job, but her boss tries to make her pay for that job, with sexual favours. When she refuses to fulfill his demands, he makes her work extra-hours. And that is, when she meets the Director Herr Arvray (Owen Narres). She has no idea who he is and goes out with him. The Director has the time of his life and it takes until morning, when Susie realizes whom she went out with.

The story of this comedy is nothing new, nothing unique, but since Renate Müller is my favourite actress, and I like her way of acting very much, I loved it. The songs were just as successful as the whole movie. "Sunshine Susie" was shot in England, after the German version "Die Privatsekretärin" became a huge success. And "Sunshine Susie" became famous throughout Europe and the USA. The German version is lost, but this English version has survived and it is on youtube right now.
Listen to Renate Müller sing "Today I Feel So Happy":



Happy New Year.

    The film is amazing to look at, everyone involved is incredibly gorgeous and the locations are all fantastic, and the performances are pretty good, too, but it's hard to ''enjoy'' given how mysoginist it comes out. It's very interesting to explore relationships through sex, and how love can make a slave out of us all, but not when the film only gives women such a hard time about it.

    Not to say it isn't serious, but cancer is something that becomes more and more common everyday, to the point that almost anyone has been neart it some time. ''50/50'' doesn't full-on go for laughs, but it does find a charming balance between the gutwrenching sadness and the sweetness of the people around you that cheer you up. Everyone in the cast deserves credit for their wonderful performances, and Will Reiser's script stupendous, human and real (not only do you identify yourself with these characters and this situation, there's also the reality of being based on Reiser's own experience).

    I can't picture anyone not having fun with this movie. It's so energetic and colorful, with jokes firing off constantly, constant sight gags and self-referential humor. The main characters remain as loveable as they have always been, with Jason Segel, Amy Adams and Walter also bringing everything they've got.
    It's incredible how watching the film you can forget that they're-- I don't even like saying it, it sounds so hurtful, but you so easily forget that they are puppets because you truly connect with all of them (That's so cheesy to say, I know. But c'mon, LOOK AT THEM. THEY'RE SO CUTE).
    It really is a testament to their talent how much we can overlook, and how silly and ridiculous we allow things to get, because of how much effort everyone involved gave into putting on this show.

    Overall, the movie is not good. Its script hits many dull points and the characters, as always, are too underdeveloped to feel like anything other than victims (I can't even remember what happened to a couple of them and I just finished watching the movie literally 7 minutes ago). However, the film gets extra points for its gory effects, courtesy of Tom Savini, and for at least trying, to mixed success, to balance its jump-scares with suspense and tension.

    The film tries so hard to be edgy, sexy and hip that it only backfires every time, but at least it fails in hilarious ways. For a movie with one location and four characters, it never becomes completely boring if you take the movie for what it is: The worst soap opera ever.

    Linda Blair has always been more likeable than what her talent, or lack thereof, should allow her to be, and ''Born Innocent'' is no exception. The film is a laughable cheesefest from beginning to end with no overtly dramatic plot points left unturned, but Blair's character arch is competent enough to care for her and keep watching.

  • The Help

    The Help (2011)

    My biggest fear about watching this movie was that it would turn out to be another ''Nice White Lady Sady Saves Poor, Helpless Blacks'', but it's a welcoming surprise to see that it shows the women actually all needing each other. Where the film stumbles, however, is in controlling all of its characters because even with a lenghty running time there are still more than the script knew how to handle. Nevertheless, it remains joyous and the wonderful performances compensate more than enough for any slight misstep (Viola Davis and Jessica Chastain being huge standouts).
