Sad to see that some people who have seen this just don't get it at all. But l guess that sorts out the psychopaths because anyone with an ounce of feeling will find this transcendent. Oh for simpler times when music was not commodified and Aretha was in her prime. That woman had something l have never encountered in anything else in all my 63 years on the planet. Everyone in the movie felt it and so did we, over 50 years later across an ocean. There are plenty of other technically gifted singers but mostly they are simply vocal gymnasts by comparison. Extraordinary talent, modest and self contained, never histrionic, never predictable phrasing, sometimes slightly off the beat with an unrivalled vocal vocabulary, always in control so that even at extremes it sounds as if she is holding something back. It's not the filming which makes this a great film but it's subject. We will never see her like again.
Me? I fell asleep half way through. My eight year old friend? He enjoyed it.
Likeable enough film withe usual Loach realism, albeit wedded to a whimsical plot. Unless you're Glaswegian best to keep the subtitles on.
I thought this an ok adaptation. It's not flashy or weighed down by some director's attempt to make it "relevant". If you are studying the play and want a fairly faithful version this is good to go.
I am struggling to understand why people think so highly of this. We found much of it implausible and the dialogue wooden. I accept that melodrama has a logic of its own but this is just wrong on so many levels.
I enjoyed this rather unconventionally structured film although l think it a little overlong. We like social realism in the U.K. so it was great to see a Japanese film explore some of lifeâ(TM)s harsher realities. I also like very much the idea that family is often where you find it and in the modern world, increasingly so. The irony of this, in the film at least, is that social services which are supposedly there to help can be unwitting agents for isolation and abuse. Many things to enjoy here, including the uniformly excellent performances and understated humour.
This is a terrific little film. There are so many things to enjoy- strong central performances, wonderful cameo roles, a real sense of time and place and personal dramas which convincingly portray wider issues. A delight from beginning to end.
Many pluses here as reviewers have noted so l will pick out a couple of things plus and minus less remarked upon. In respect if the latter, overlong. I appreciate the director anted to take his time, itâ(TM)s all very beautiful etc but l would have enjoyed it more had there been less of it. Positive note: not scored but an object lesson in how to use a soundtrack.
I am a little puzzled by a lot of the very negative comments. Most are short and dismissive so itâ(TM)s hard to know what the problem is. I found it very entertaining although l have quite a lot of reservations as the characters are patently contemporary rather than historical. It is a lot of fun and it is a refreshing change from the usual contume drama formula. I also found the score jarring and the director plainly did not know how to end it. Great sets and costumes. Good pace and great performances. Olivia Colman, as everyone says, is terrific.
If you like political films (probably 5% of the population) you will love this, provided you can suspend your own ideological overcoat. I am not sure what people mean by â~scattergun approachâ(TM)â(TM). To me itâ(TM)s a chronicle of our times. Cheney is not portrayed as a monster. I do not think the film would work at all if he was. If anyone portrayed could complain, it would be George Bush. Maybe he is as dumb as that but thatâ(TM)s pretty much all we are told about him. Riveting stuff and very funny in parts. I love the scene where Cheney and spouse quote Shakespeare at each other. Who knows: they might have!
This is kind of ok. My main reservations relate to the way men are portrayed and the lack of psychological realism.
I find it hard to understand some of the negative comments about this- a genuine cinematic landmark. The technical achievement is widely and rightly recognised but it also offers perspectives we rarely here from combatants. I was very struck with the way the soldiers used humour to deal with their situation and the acceptance that death could come at any time. I was struck by the lack of animosity towards their foe alongside while accepting it was their job to kill as many as possible. The matter of fact description of hand to hand fighting in the trenches is appalling and also just a fact if life. I think this is probably the best portrayal of warfare l have ever seen.
All you need to know is Will Self thinks this 'essential'.
I do weird big time but sad to say l found this boring and contrived.
Chilly, minimalist supernatural thriller. Maybe a bit slow and spare for people who like more schlocky thrills. I stuck with it as l was in a theatre but if l at home l would have switched it off. My friend fell asleep.
Yes itâ(TM)s a heist movie so yes itâ(TM)s not at all believable but it is pacy and interesting throughout. I am not sure l would describe as popcorn as the characters (or some of them) appear to have real lives. I think most people would enjoy this apart from those who cannot stand violence.
Do not be alarmed, Although it is concerned with prejudice and cruelty it is not a preachy film. It is populated by real characters not cardboard cut outs. The villains of the piece have their reasons. And above all it is about resilience and love.
Top notch black farce. And like any really good comedy, deadly serious. Wonderful concept brilliantly realised. I love that it is banned in Russia.
This is a small film but very rewarding. Deserves it's critical plaudits.
Riveting drama from a supremely talented director. Less overtly political than Leviathan, it offers real insights into the dislocation in modern Russia. On a technical note the framing and soundtrack are both excellent as are the performances.
