I loved it. This is not a foreign film so you will not need to "read" this movie. But this is not one of those movies where you can fast fwd thru the parts with no dialogue. There is wonderful narration and even when there is dialogue in German, you will see no subtitles. We don't need it to know what the Nazi soldiers are yelling. We already know what garbage they are spewing and thus no literal translation is necessary. The George Eliot quote at the end of the movie was perfect. So many wonderful words are spoken in the movie. "Better to suffer injustice than to do it." "A darker time is coming when men will be more clever...they won't fight the truth, they'll just ignore it." This movie reached all the way to my bone marrow. It tugged at my soul and the the loving couple, Franz and Fani remains there now and always.
I enjoyed this pure mind-blowing adult entertainment. The low ratings THE BEACH BUM got is puzzling. It is rated R for a reason. I loved the pot-smoking Moondog and all his shenanigans. Not recommended for uptight moralists.
I recommend Burning (Beoning) with a suggestion to wait a while after watching it before reviewing it. I wasn't sure if I liked the movie or not once I finished watching it but hours and days later, I liked it more and more. Yes, it was a slow "burn" kind of drama. The entire ensemble gave a great understated performance. This movie stayed with me for a long time afterwards.
This movie warmed my heart like no other movie ever has. Of course I am a lover of dogs and cats (even tho cats do not fare well here) and I have enjoyed all of Wes Anderson's charming movies. And even tho I am not a big animated movie fan, this is one of the very few movies where I had to go buy the DVD as soon as I saw it. There is so much detail to discover that I still find something new and enchanting even after all these viewings.
I was pleasantly surprised to realize I was entertained by this newest Terminator movie and thus my recommendation. I think Mackenzie Davis who plays Grace helped. My only question is why did Arnold the Terminator age if he's a machine?
