Lullaby for Pi Reviews
On one particular night was he is yet again watching some like it hot, a young women come bursting into the room followed by a upset man. she locks herself in Sam's bathroom waiting until the man goes away. so begins a relationship of sorts through a closed door.
What I really liked about this little indie film was the combination of music and film two things I really love. Rupert Friend is really great as Sam he's a actor I haven't seen much of but liked to see more. Clemence Poesy is such a fascinating actress so unique, there is a sweetness to her that's wonderful to watch. I was really impressed with this sweet little love story.
A tale told best with jazz music, in abundance, from neighboring locals coming in through the open window, purposely left open, allowing others seeking respite, or jazz lessons and perhaps understanding from one who has 'been there'. This movie sets itself apart with the strength of the characterization of Sam (Rupert), not merely a tragic figure, but as a once broken man who begins his rebirth into the world, and he takes prisoners, his conscience won't let him do otherwise. What a surprising talent in Friend, musician, singer, actor, young and very handsome, this tale is not for those who want meat with their potatoes, or it is if you can handle a sprinkling of magic in the garnish, but it is not to be missed by those who thrive on mystical parsley. A new favorite for me, to be sure!
