Personal, poignant and with a stellar cast; this gem of cinema captures the mood of the times when Afro-American vets came back to a society that did not treat them with the respect they deserved. The dialogue is not muzzled: it is brutally true to the language used in the US during the middle of the 20th century. It makes clear, again, painfully; that the military and sports have been the wedges of change in our historically polarized society.
An amazing acting performance by Pete Davidson makes this a 'must see'! SNL may have been his launching pad; but this movie was enjoyable from beginning to end. Kudos to his cast as they provided a perfect canvas for his developing artistry.
This movie is so understated that it requires full attention to its nuances. If you do not shed a tear at the end: watch it again. The love of two brothers: one secretly gay and the other with Asperger's syndrome in a very strict Asian family overcoming grief and struggling with their culture. Well done!
The plot may be old, but the acting was superb: including the dog!
This is a class act from beginning to end!
This was an amazingly great film documenting the realities of WW1 a year before the Armistice; parts can be cringe-worthy. Superb production and and impeccable direction make this a must see for history buffs!
This movie will mean different things to different age groups and ethnicities. At 75, even knowing the movie was a parody, there was enough reality in it to make me cringe at certain scenes. At best, it will be an excellent teaching tool to younger people on how this era re-shaped the western world forever; at worst, it could confuse the same.
Roman Davis as Jojo was excellent, Thomasin McKenzie (Elsa) was poignant in her role as a Jewish girl being protected by Scarlett Johansson (Rosie) was profoundly and genuinely compassionate in her role, having been raised Jewish in the Bronx in real life. Now to the performance of Hitler played by Taika Waititi: he was incredible in his first real major role of his career -- here again drawing on the depth of his roots as a Maori, Scot and Azakanashi Jew, New Zealander in playing the hated Führer -- was balanced, wonderful and appropriately spot-on making Hitler look like a fool! I have to certify him as 100% fresh.
Much, much, much too long! I began wishing that it would just end . . . BUT loved the old cars.
A must see as the 'eyes' have it. No spoiler: this production is brilliant!
All I can say is that this gem should be the gold standard for every person of color or not, to study the history and civics of of our country. Amazing performances by all!
Great special effects but much, much too long -- 2 hours and forty minutes! I just kept saying to myself; when will they tie up this production?
Tremendous acting by Amy Ryan carries the movie!
This is a tremendously powerful piece of work; amazing special effects and great acting by a small cast. Some strong twists late in the film leaves the real ending up to the viewer and their imagination.
This is more than a good period-piece art film. It would make an excellent primer for generations that may be totally oblivious to the post-war era in East Europe before the Berlin Wall came down. It is totally in black and white which only reflects the bleakness of this post-war period. The screenplay is excellent and the direction -- especially of the music and dancing -- was outstanding. The cinematography was absolutely impeccable. Once you immerse yourself into this decades-spanning love story; you might never look at European history the same!
