V for Vendetta Reviews
absolutely beautiful. The story, tempo, character, acting, everything is well played to bring balance and harmony in this film. Hugo Weaving's acting without any facial expression is just magnificent and due to him having a mask on, V's emotion is spoken out very well from the body language that Hugo brings in. Every minor posture change speak to us how V is feeling at the moment. It reminds me the Japanese Nou-men play where actors are to put on a mask and describe the characters feeling using their subtle body movements. We also cannot forget the mightily acting of Natalie Portman bringing in an insecure Evey who transforms into a very strong character in the end. Every actors chosen in this film is spot on and their acting do not eat away other character but brings great balance and harmony overall. I really think James McTeigue done a brilliant job uniting the team in which the end result was beauty in film form. The music also well describe the moment and executed in the best timing. This is a masterpiece I can watch unlimited time and still do not get bored out of it. Just absolutely beautiful.
