Breaking and Entering Reviews
Jude Law and always Martin Freeman gave great performances
A partner to a business has his company broken into. The partner is in a complicated and frustrating relationship with his wife, so he doesn't mind camping out outside his company to ensure the act doesn't happen again. He discovers a young man and his friends committed the break-in and follows the kid home to discover he's a troubled youth with a mother just trying to make ends meet. The partner gets to know the mother, falls in love, and a complex relationship forms that complicates things at work and home for the business partner.
"What man wants to be with a girl that smells like his wife?"
Anthony Minghella, director of Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Truly Madly Deeply, The English Patient, and Mr. Wonderful, delivers Breaking and Entering in his last motion picture. The storyline for this picture is a bit methodical and complex but interesting with a magnificent conclusion. The acting, script, and situations were first rate and the cast includes Jude Law, Robin Wright, Vera Farmiga, Martin Freeman, Rafi Gavron, and Juliette Binoche.
"She'll never be his daughter."
I grabbed this movie off HBOGO recently and found it better than I anticipated. This film isn't perfect, but is very dynamic and well put together. I adored how it concluded. This is a very smart drama that is worth a viewing but may not be worth adding to your DVD collection.
"They're cleaners and they're not clean..."
The story moves along. There are some unexpected twists and turns. The ending is a bit predictable; but very well done. It has a realistic feel.
It was a good trip to the flics.
