Critic Reviews for Love! Valour! Compassion!
Terrence McNally's Tony award-winning play, a perceptive, often hilarious look and love and life in the AIDS era, is so sharply written and bluntly entertaining that it almost overcomes Joe Mantell's static direction, which is too theatrical.
Outdoor settings alone do not a movie make, though director Joe Mantello (who also directed the play) seems to be trying.
Audience Reviews for Love! Valour! Compassion!
I was quite surprised by the movie. Even if the beginning of the movie was very clichÃ (C), the more the movie advanced and the more I liked it. What I did truly like in the movie is the very simple and yet elegant narrative, full of emotion. I was touched by most of the scenes, despite their simpleness and I adored the finale (the moment where everybody is dancing...).
I wish this had been just a tiny bit more consistent- because I really wanted to rate it more highly. For the most part this is very touching, emotional and beautiful. But there's so much filler, especially in the beginning, that it was a little difficult to enjoy the movie thoroughly. Definitely not a waste of time, though.
Angsty, maudlin drama based on a much better play. The actors are capable but something is lost in the translation from stage to screen.
