Chances Are Reviews
From about 1:30:00 in the movie the movie goes into a sad and depressed mood, this part is the only part of the movie that has a deeper feeling. The calm feeling when the two main characters reunited and the light comedy which came right after it immediately stops the deeper feeling at the right time. It gives the movie a perfect amount of deeper feeling which portraits this movie.
The casting of this movie is definitely a huge part of its success. The two actors both have played the characteristics of Phillipe and Driss perfectly. With the wrong emotions shown by the actors in the movie, the feeling of the movie could change. Especially for Phillipe, the strong facial expressions that Francois Cluzet was able to play were really able to show the completed feeling a man with a disability has.
The reason this move in my point of view can not get a full 5 out of 5 rating is that the main characters are a little too stereotyped. Philippe is an old, rich white man, likes classical music. On the other hand, Driss is a black man, fresh out of jail, have a huge family to support, going against the rules. These characteristics stumble over the vexing question of race, and class. The only reason why people have no huge reactions to this problem is that of the light and delighting theme of this movie, so people don´┐ 1/2(TM)t think too much into it. Other than that, this movie is pretty perfect for someone like me, who just want to watch some light comedy that I don´┐ 1/2(TM)t think too much into after a long day.
Many scenes were filmed in Georgetown, along the Mall, and other parts of Washington, DC.
