You felt for the characters. And Chloe Moretz was wonderful. But as I tried to think about all the good things in this movie, the bad seemed to overwhelm me. The most glaring problem is the music aspect. It's obvious that the writer knows nothing about music or musicians. I highly doubt that a musical family with musical friends and the main character having a musical boyfriend, would never have played together before the backyard party scene. They made it seem like, because she was a Cello player, she was an outcast. That's probably one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. Don't believe me, just go over to YouTube and type in "Cello Rock" And you'll see what I mean. And then there's the boyfriend who, just like her father, was in an up and coming rock band (what a coincidence). He's about to go on tour, yet is annoyed that his talented girlfriend might be getting in to Julliard? A school that she didn't even want to apply to? What the hell kind of alternate reality is this? Which brings us back to how she started playing to begin with. Her father, an up and coming musician, who made enough to raise two kids and own a home, had to sell his drum set and quit playing so his daughter could have a nice Cello? Not one bit of that makes sense. Sure, if she were an only child and they were living in a van, it would make sense. But they seemed to be living a comfortable life. And most music shops will allow you to rent to own the really nice musical equipment like Cello's. And don't even get me started about how the hospital treats her friends. I'm sorry, but you have a patient in a coma, you let everyone in. Not one single hospital would stop a boyfriend from seeing his girlfriend. In fact, that's one of those old rules that hasn't existed in ages, "family only". Hospitals know that visitors are an important part of the healing process and they let everyone in. And if you're in a critical care unit, even more so. So this movie had a nice premise, that failed in the end, because of writers who didn't bother to research the material.

(nl) wrote: A tender, touching film indeed -- recounting the love story between Queen Victoria (Judi Dench) and Mr. John Brown (Billy Connolly), a servant. The beginning of the show portrays the immense aristocracy of Queenhood, and how all her court are bound by the grief for her late husband she has maintained for three years. But Mr. Brown will have none of this mourning; he knows she needs to get out, ride, commune with nature, and laugh again. He manages to accomplish this with a spunk and rebelliousness that will attract any modern audience.The film does a marvelous job of placing the viewer in the time period. Scenery is breathtaking; setting is perfect. Watch for the scene where the Queen sets the table. Who doesn't love the tale of a monarch falling for a commoner?

From the beginning till the end (and especially in the end) I found it impossible to follow the story. But that's not a problem, in fact it was rather fun now and then. But I didn't find it so interesting. Kika herself was hilarious (the rape scene can only be discribed as: what the hell?!) but Abril's character should have been killed off way before, I just couldn't stand her.

(it) wrote: Reviewing the 3-hour version, Ingmar Bergman's final theatrical film is a epic final piece of art from one of the most influential filmmakers of our time. The first act does take a while to get going, but I found everything after the intermission to be engaging, dramatic and mystical. Bishop Edvard Vergrus has to be one of the greatest film villains in history. I love how the story had a Charles Dickens feel, with a big cast of diverse characters, a family experiencing love and loss, and a young boy growing up and learning life lessons. This is a great final film and a must-watch for any film buff or a fan of good storytelling.Grade: A
(br) wrote: This movie could have been a classic if only it didn't take itself too seriously. It starts off with blue skies and billowing clouds, a sweeping, romantic score (which turns out to be the most annoying thing about the picture) and a written forward which shamelessly begins "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." If you can get past that, this is actually a pretty decent picture as far as tragic romances go. My idea of romantic movies leans more toward "The Crow" (I told my Baby if she were ever raped and killed, I would come back to life and take bloody revenge...sometimes I just don't think she gets me). Harrison Ford plays David Halloran, a WWII pilot stationed in London. He meets and falls instantly in love (a little too instantly, maybe) with a British army nurse played by Lesley-Anne Warren. He knows she's married but the two begin an intense affair. The more interesting part of the story, for me revolves around how their relationship affects Ford's duties as a bomber pilot. When we first see him in action, he is openly mocking his superiors and flying fearlessly into battle, dropping bombs on the Germans as artillary shells explode all around him. The deeper in love he falls with Warren, however, the more concerned he is about losing his life. He wants to live to be with her. Eventually his nerves fail him and he bails on a mission. Things take a turn for the worse when Warren's husband, Christopher Plummer, takes an espionage mission that will send him deep into Nazi territory. Plummer is brave and smart, but he is also bland compaired to Ford's character. Still, he loves his wife and she knows it. As fate would have it, Ford is picked to fly him to his destination. When their plane is shot down and they are presumed dead, She feels as if she is being punished for her infidelities. From here, the story turns into a fairly straitforward WWII movie. Ford decides to help Plummer complete his mission when it becomes evident that Plummer is not as prepared as he believed. There are some close calls and tense moments as Ford resolves to get Plummer back to his wife. I give this movie an 80% because I'm a big Harrison Ford fan, especially his work in the 80s. Also, the espionage plot and the scenes with Ford and his bomber crew are good. And then there is Christopher Plumber, whose character is complex and believable. Only 4 out of the 7 critics who reviewed it on here gave it a fresh though, so fair warning. Still, if you're a Harrison Ford fan or you like your romances with a touch of gunplay, check this one out.

Very pro-religious stuff. Kaj Munk, a Danish pastor who was also the author of the play on which the film was based on, was murdered by the Nazis for daring to announce his fidelity to Christ over Hitler. The power of his faith comes across in the writing. Carl Theodor Dreyer's directing is exceptional here -- especially his camerawork where he uses numerous long takes hypnotizing the viewer, fully immersing us with the content on show (I was surprised by how quickly the time flew by). The acting, when taking into account those very long shots, was great. The cinematography also deserves mentioning. After all the struggles throughout the film, the conclusion is notably the standout feature; one of the best ever.''Ordet'' won the Golden Lion at the 1955 Venice Film Festival.P.S: Though I enjoyed the film, my atheism cannot contain itself from calling it utter BS (lol). I do give it a strong recommendation to my religious peeps, though.
