Very good story, funny and thought provoking. Loved it!
Renée Zellweger and Forest Whitaker's performances are excellent, this film is different to anything that the industry propose at the moment, good moment and ncie soundtrack, thanks to Bob Dylan.
not good but just interesting to not shut off
Nem a brilhante atuaÃ§Ã£o de Forest Whitaker salva essa trama vazia e desconexa.
Aunque tenga un inicio de lo mas prometedor, la nueva historia del director de LA VIE EN ROSE se pierde en un continuo intento de humanizar demasiado a los personajes, que aunque las interpretaciones sean lo mejor del reparto, hacen lo que pueden con una historia que no da para mucho, y las buenas Road -Movies ya hace mucho que desaparecieron.
Talented cast unfortunately in dull and uninspiring script and ultimately resulted in very poor movie.
Former singer Jane Wyatt (Renée Zellweger) struggles to make it through each day after a car accident leaves her paralyzed from the waist down, and if not for her only friend Joey (Forest Whitaker) she would be content to spend her days in solitude inside her house. But eccentric and mentally unstable Joey is determined to help her live again by bringing her along to a seminar in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to hear his favorite author speak about communicating with angels...which he does on a regular basis.
Jane reluctantly agrees, and the two set out on a road trip which turns out to be marked with disaster at every turn. Along the way the pair meet several interesting characters who each have their own sad story to tell, which eventually causes Jane to face her fear of living.
This is a solid indie film with great performances from Forest Whitaker & Renée Zellweger. Full of music, including great singing performances from Renée Zellweger herself with a heartfelt and rugged style comparable to artists like Cat Power & Ray LaMontagne. This is an altogether touching, and at times melancholy, story with a plot that flows very well and delivers from start to finish.
Renee Zellweger and Forest Whitaker's performances are the best reason to see this film. I found the film to be a bit off focus. It starts out great but in the middle, goes all over the place. They had a good idea for a film, but didn't execute it correctly. The film needed a major rewrite. I did like the music and the songs in the film. The film is worth seeing only for Zellweger and Whitaker's performances.
How did Olivier Dahan, the man who directed La Vie en Rose, mess this up? The idea of the road trip had promise, but it's sappy, disjointed, and ragged. Sometimes it tries to be arty, sometimes philosophical, sometimes motivational - and fails at all. The best part was Renee Zelwegger singing - assuming she did.
Una melancÃ³lica Road Movie que aborda el tema de la soledad acompaÃ±ada: Se trata de un interesante proyecto en Hollywood para el francÃ©s Olivier Dahan, que trata de fijarse en lo que significan, a lo largo de una vida, los encuentros que la van marcando.
Sin embargo, es una lÃ¡stima que la cinta no sabe equilibrar sus ingredientes: Da la sensaciÃ³n, por tanto, de no tener una buena "base" estable desde la que transmitir sus "golpes" emocionales, con lo que acaban siendo bastante "inofensivos" o poco reales. De hecho, quizÃ¡ lo mejor del filme son los evocadores momentos surrealistas.
Bueno, mejor dicho, eso es "casi" lo mejor, porque la pelÃcula no sÃ³lo sÃ consigue mantenerse, sino que acaba levantando el vuelo gracias a la soberbia interpretaciÃ³n de la amargura por parte de RenÃ©e Zellweger y de la ternura, por cortesÃa del seÃ±or Forest Whitaker.
