Benjamin Smoke torrent reviews

Kevin C (nl) wrote: A lot more attention will be paid to this if Abrahamson walks away with an Oscar next month. This coming of age tale is where the director came of age. It's a slow-burner; indeed not a lot happens in the first 30 minutes. However it all comes to the boil and is an excellent portrayal of raw grief and guilt. A film that leaves an impression.

Magical W (jp) wrote: There isn't a single performance here that I thought was below average. That's quite an achievement for a YA movie book. While it's predictable, the mystery behind this universe is enough to compel me to finish this movie.

Grant S (kr) wrote: Dull. Plot had no point, and, though this is allegedly a comedy, wasn't funny. Cast looks good, on paper: Heather Graham, Gillian Anderson, Joanna Lumley, Alan Cumming, Danny Huston, Christopher Lee, Amanda Seyfried, Stellan Sarsgard and Jaime Winstone. In reality, the cast is unconvincing, hampered by the weak plot and lacklustrel direction.

Christina N (ag) wrote: The gore was okay, but otherwise boring. Not long ago since I watched it and cant remember much of it already...

Kat S (ag) wrote: Uncle Hong, nooooooooo.

Jason S (ru) wrote: It makes my cunt ache

Alex I (jp) wrote: I swear they change the names of his companions every movie. Second movie's pretty great, fighting against a cult of sorts.

Teddy J (nl) wrote: This movie needs to get remade. It has such an awesome story that simply cannot be topped. A bigger budget would do wonders.

Brian K (ag) wrote: What may have come across as charming and whimsical in 1957 now comes across as vapid and embarrassing now. Not even Audrey Hepburn's charms could save this movie.

Dagenais S (gb) wrote: One of my favorite films which I watch it all the time. Leslie Caron is the perfect ingenue and the story is just so sweet and touching. THey really don't make such lovely romances nowadays. I love the interaction between Lili and the puppets and also her journey towards self discovery and knowledge. Mel Ferrer is also very easy on the eyes, which certainly doesn't hurt. A beautiful film.I also recommend the short story upon which Lili is based, The Love of Seven Dolls by Paul Gallico, but it's a little grittier and not so sweet and innocent.

Maggie A (ag) wrote: So hilariously ridiculous. So fantastic.

Dsire S (us) wrote: Sweet concept, wonderful actresses. But when one comes home and the life partner doesn't kiss or even hug the one they want to marry - not very realistic.
