This movie brought tears to my eyes. There were some parts that were hard to watch but I was happy to see the little girl escape in the end. I am glad this movie was made because it brings attention to a very serious problem in child sex trafficking.
I've heard about this movie for years and I was always told it was a great movie but to be honest I was not all that impressed when I finally saw it. I was impressed with Brando's performance but The story seemed a little farfetched to me. I didn't know Brando could speak French. Brando plays an American in Paris who's wife committed suicide. He has a chance meeting with a young girl and they immediately get into an intimate relationship.
Typical Woody Allen film. Not as good as his previous films but mildly amusing. Allen does his neurotic father shtick where he and his family are visiting an East European country during the Cold War. While there he accidentally takes a picture of a military base and he is presumed to be a spy. The family retreats to the American embassy where the inept son of the US ambassador tries to help them get back to the US.
Intense psychodrama in this Italian film about a woman who recall her past abuse by a pedophilia father. I first saw the beautiful Giovanna Mezzogiorno in "Love in the Time of Cholera" where she was excellent so I decided to see this film because of that.
I've heard about this classic movie for years. I finally saw it on Netflix. Audrey Hepburn is wonderful in it. You see a young George Peppard in his pre - A Team days. If you can get past Mickey Rooney's racist portrayal as a Japanese man and some of the old fashioned attitudes and behaviors of that time period it's a pretty good movie. It's especially nostalgic for me because it takes me back to my childhood. The movie takes place in 1960s New York which is where I lived when I was growing up.
