Unfinished Song Reviews
Aside from its saccharine plot, "Song for Marion" already has a couple of strikes going against it. First, its major attempts at humor come from seniors singing age-inappropriate songs. Plus, the world is really not ready for a super-perky Gemma Arterton. At the same time, Vanessa Redgrave and Christopher Eccleston are both very good in support. That brings us to Terence Stamp who carries and grounds the movie at the same time with his sensitive, yet tough, performance.
However, I cried a lot...
- I really enjoyed this one. it is definitely over-sentimental and melodramatic, but the performances won me over. Both Stamp and Redgrave are outstanding and I really enjoyed Arterton who I think has a big career out of her. one of my faves this year, and reminded me of a fave from last year, "The Best exotic marigold hotel". Give this one a shot!
