Harrison's Flowers Reviews
It had a pretty strong effect on me as I had no idea what the film was about.
It's been ages that I've been moved so much by a film. I can only hope the depiction of war in this film is exaggerated.
For a film that had an $8,000,000 budget, it really is brilliantly well done.
In my opinion, Harrison's Flower is a better war movie than a love story. At the heart of this tale, it also shows the lengths to which a woman will go when presented with the slimmest of hope that her husband might still be alive. She abandons all reasons for love and instinct. Adrien Brody's character quoted" If we could all be so lucky to have a woman who love us that much." However, the whole premise was rather unbelievable when it comes to the romantic parts.
This could have been one of the best films but I felt it was marred by the farfetched romantic plot and Andie McDowell, she seem miscast as Sarah Lloyd. Adrien Brody turned in a luminous performance, it managed to keep me interested for a reasonable portion of its lengthy duration.
