(nl) wrote: I haven't watched a lot of silent films, but this ode to an art long gone was absolutely charming. Who would have thought no voices could be so fun.
(jp) wrote: Not as good as I thought it would be. I didn't hate it. My grade: CNature Calls is Patrice O'Neal's one and only posthumous release.
(nl) wrote: This movie is alright. The story is predictable but the acting is good. With a better script, one that is not so sappy, this movie would have been better than average.
(jp) wrote: I dont care if they rate the scare as cheap but this movie has a good message, the good thing about it is justice was being served though crime has been done a long time ago.
(gb) wrote: Even Minnie Driver's over-the-top performance can't save this boring rom-com. Colin Firth and Heather Graham have zero chemistry.
(es) wrote: It doesn't matter if you are a muslim or an orthodox for the clouds. They cry for the victims on both sides... This movie clearly shows that we are just little tiny creatures on a small meteor in the endless universe. And we little creatures with big problems are looking for a tiny reason to start a war. And when the massacre begins the sides suddenly fade away. A great movie from Macedonia!
(ag) wrote: One line summary: A fine comedy about a duck out of water with an eccentric family.------------------ Gabriella invites Michael to spend Christmas with the family in Quebec City. This includes the mother and father, plus sisters Simone and Irenka, and Irenka's boyfriend Nick. Michael runs afoul of just about everything. Gabriella tells him she is no longer in love with him. Gabriella's mother is a fairly strict Catholic who believes in avoiding sex before marriage. The family dog does not seem to like him. In a sub-thread, the grandmother is ill, and periodically escapes from the hospital to be with her dead husband at their previous home. While looking for Granny, Michael falls down a shaft. Granny discovers him, and they go back to where Granny lived with her husband, also named Michael. Michael gets a second round of this when the others go skiing, Nick goes for petrol, and Michael thinks he's alone with her. Michael finds Granny's long missing 'summer shoes.' When he tries to present her with them, he finds that Granny has gone to yet another house. On the way back to the hospital, Granny's health plummets. Nick and Michael don't quite get her back in time. The funeral was held before Christmas. Nick leaves after the viewing. At Christmas, things are a bit somber. Michael meets (yes, mysterious) Young Granny at the family tomb. Michael has farewell discussions before he goes home.------Scores------ Cinematography: 10/10 Professional presentation, start to finish. Sound: 9/10 The actors were properly miked, and most of the incidental music was well-chosen. Acting: 8/10 Patrick Dempsey was brilliant, as were Lila Kedrova, Andre Gregory, Florinda Bolkan, and Sanna Vraa. Jennifer Connelly was hard to recognise, and was more irritating than anything else. Screenplay: 8/10 Clever and mature.

(jp) wrote: Tragic and Heartbreaking. What starts as possibly a sarcastic look into the lives of an elderly because a naive story that uses animation, claymation, stop motion and live action to full advantage
(es) wrote: Excellent, complex romantic melodrama from the French director Max Ophuls. Great performances, a bittersweet score. Don't be afraid of the elliptical title.
(de) wrote: Muni's performance is staggering, LeRoy's direction focused and forceful with lots of visual expressiveness and inventiveness, and the story, of the institution creating rather than curing criminals, is still searing eighty years later.
(kr) wrote: I mean, best animated film of 2004 with a fantastic story and so much nostalgia.
(de) wrote: Each time a new Hellraiser is made, it's worse than the one before it and most of us gave up after the 2nd or 3rd one. The only reason I even gave it the rating I did was for the acting ability of Nick Eversman, but sadly, his talent couldn't save this flop. I've seen better acting and plots from high school plays.
