Bring a fan of Woody Allen I can't help but look forward to his annual release but this time I couldn't help agreeing with the critics it's a bit of lemon.
Kate Winslet does well with a weak & messy script but it's just doesn't really go anyway in particular.
Great costumes & immaculate Cinematography & at times good dialogue but overall doesn't compel. Very cynical...been keen to see his next film with Selena Gomez in 2018.
The final installment of the Apu Trilogy comes full circle with now Apu in his adult years. Recently graduated from college & a burning passion to write a novel.
However he finds himself lonely & longing for company & unintentionally finds himself married when his friend flees on his wife wedding day. Although not in love at first the couple fall in love quite quickly.
Sadly a tragedy strikes & Apu is truly unable to move on due to all the previous loss & grief & loses his mind. Arguably in this state he truly finds himself. A beautiful, sad & tender end to a trilogy of a human life.
The mid way 2nd installment in the Apu Trilogy that captures Apu's school years & his struggle to want to learn & prosper & the reality of his impoverished life.
The film captures his teen years & his first major experiences of heartbreak & loss with death in his family.
Although he is growing so too is he view on he world & the more he learns the more he wants to visit & see. Beautifully acted & such authentically true...a truly memorable mid way film.
The first of the Apu Trilogy that have been labeled some of the most incredible films of all time. Director Satyajit Ray went away from the escapism of Bollywood & captured the raw struggle & simplicity of Rural life in a Bengal Village.
The story is simple... the world through the eyes of the young boy Apu as he comes to grip with his reality & his family's lot in life & his beautiful & innocent naiveness.
Beautifully made & performances are exceptional since there aren't many professional actors. This film is just as much stirring as it is stunning to watch, a beautiful beginning to a powerful trilogy.
Quite uncanny the release of this film & the horror of the fires in California at the moment, but nonetheless a terrific film of the dedication of Firefighters.
The did a poll of most respected & trusted professions in Australia & Paramedics & Firefighters where in the top 5! This film demonstrates why.
The story of local fire fighters who get the opportunity to be Hotshots & to tackle the big fires. However none of them are prepared for what's ahead. A powerful drama, well acted & based on a true story.
