(au) wrote: A pretty fun, light-hearted, and entertaining movie and actually more enjoyable than I thought it would be! Despite all the fairies and eye candy, there's a nice plot to the movie with a message of forgiveness in the end. Some of the elements did remind me of a previous movie, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless.

(jp) wrote: This interesting, complex horror movie is about a photographer named Tun who takes pictures of a campus. One night, he accidentally crashes into a pedestrian who seemingly vanished into thin air. From the photos he took at the campus there are shadows and white lines in every picture until in one of them shows a ghostly image of a girl. Tun along with his wife Jane visit a professional photographer who tells them that sometimes, the dead will hold onto who they love the most which is why the dead aren't resting in peace. So Tun buys a Polaroid camera to take instant pictures and see if there are any ghosts nearby but Jane notices that Tun's friends have committed suicide and he may be next in line and this may have to do with the mysterious girl in the picture with him he took at school. Tun describes that her name was Natre, a quiet and lonely girl who he became close with because he felt sorry for her. Secretly, they both fell in love with each other and spent time together until one day when she was in a lift with Tun and his friends, they sexually harassed her and he did nothing. As the days passed, he faded away from her and she disappeared. Tun and Jane meet Natre's mum who is still keeping her dead body and hasn't cremated it yet so they show the pictures explaining that if they don't cremate Natre, she won't rest in peace. More taken photos at Tun's apartment reveal that Natre's spirit is in their house. Jane takes a look at some hidden photos and finds out that Tun's friends once pinned down Natre and raped her at the same time forced him to take pictures of that incident back at school. After Natre's body is cremated, all photo evidence of her is burned and Tun re-flashes photos of his house. When he finds no evidence of her, he throws the Polaroid camera onto the floor and then it flashes at him. He picks up the camera to see his latest picture and sees her sitting on top of his shoulders realising this was what had created the neck pain the beginning. Mentally scarred, he falls out of a window and ends up in a mental asylum where Jane visits him in his room and as the door closes behind her, the reflection on the window shows Natre still sitting on Tun's shoulders. What more can I say than I've given away the whole story, it's fantastic, it's crazy, the atmosphere is built up perfectly and the story is written even more perfectly. Shutter (2004) gets a weak 9/10.

(ru) wrote: I hate this movie with every fiber of my being. The main character is completely unlikable. The story slowly builds to nothing. Unbearably boring, and obnoxiously self indulgent. It might have been mildly entertaining edited as a short film, but stretched to a feature length it is absolutely maddening.
(us) wrote: One of the most powerful dramas I have ever seen, and the saddest movie I've seen in years. It brought me to tears at least three times. It shows the deterioration of a family and life as we know it in the wake of a nuclear attack. It made me glad to live in a world were I really don't have to be afraid of total nuclear war. Not a happy movie by any means, but so amazingly well done that it needs to be seen as a cautionary tale. Wow.
(nl) wrote: Looking for a brighter economic future for her family after her husband dies, Rosaria Parondi moves herself and her five sons to Milan from rural southern Italy. There, they face difficulties finding and keeping work, some discrimination, and the different social opportunities and temptations of the city. Director Luchino Visconti begins in neo-realist mode (more or less) but the drama soon shifts into a more literary novelistic style, with tension between the bad son (Renato Salvatori) and the good son (Alain Delon). Salvatori starts out on a boxing career but soon falls in with the wrong crowd, including a prostitute (Annie Girardot) who leads him further astray into petty crime and debauchery. Delon keeps his nose clean, gets drafted into the military and returns to find his bad brother abandoned by his fling, kicked out of boxing, and deep in debt - he subsequently seeks to reform the prostitute, becomes a boxing champion himself, and tries to hold his family together. The other brothers play more minor roles but the escalating melodrama envelops them as well. Indeed, things get very extreme and take this family drama into much darker territory. As Rocco (Delon) suggests, it might have been better if they'd stayed put and not moved to Milan at all. Thus, the film is a lament for the passing of community, family, and tradition in favour of more alienated, individualistic, and industrialized pursuits, although Visconti keeps the story on a small scale.

(au) wrote: Although there is a certain cliche and lack of depth in the plot (typical-i-am destined-to-fight kind of plot), many things are already outstanding in this 1st piece of work by the legendary Kurosawa. The camera angles, the style and the small moments, like the shy behaviour in those scenes prelude to romance, are some of the things ppl will rmb about this film.
(ca) wrote: I thought this movie was quite okey and i know many dont like it to much. Its no masterpiece just a simple epic storyline about vikings plundering and killing in america. Not many famous faces except Karl Urban from (Riddick , LOTR). Overall a fair movie..
