Mais en fait, pas du tout : Bouquet final est une comedie francaise de facture classique, qui table sur de bons acteurs et une poignee de gags marrants, meme si pas forcement tres releves. Pourtant, Bouquet final ne decolle jamais tout a fait : comme s'il s'excusait de rire d'un sujet aussi grave, le film adjoint a son humour un contenu dramatique assez convenu et une touche sentimentale dont on se serait aisement dispense. Ceci dit, ces elements sont doses avec un minimum de savoir-faire, ce qui permet a ce film sans pretentions de s'imposer, certes pas comme la comedie de l'annee, mais comme quelque chose de tout a fait regardable.
(fr) wrote: Woody Allen's 2008, Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a modern day look into the heated, yet romantic faerie tale that a summer spent in Spain may evoke. The picturesque scenery and relatable characters make the film enjoyable. Allowing the audience to just relax without requiring much thinking on their part Two unlikely friends, Vicky (Rebecca Hall) and Cristina (Scarlett Johansson), arrive in Barcelona set to spend the summer with Vicky's aunt and uncle. The audience learns from the narrator that Vicky enjoys structure and stability in all aspects of life. Vicky plans to use the summer doing research for her major in Catalan studies, and upon her return is set to marry in the fall. Cristina on the other hand, likes adventure and any new thrill. As a failed short filmmaker, Cristina hopes to find a new love that can spark some creativity for her, over the summer. Cristina only staying satisfied until her familiar stirring calls and she gets the urge to move on. Some relatable characters arise out of this film, like Cristina. Cristina and her carefree, live for the thrill way of life can resonate with those that posses a sense of adventure. Late one evening while dining, Vicky and Cristina come across Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem). He's a sultry Catalan painter, who has questionable behaviors. Juan Antonio approaches Vicky and Cristina making this suggestion, " I'd be honored if you'd both accompany me to Oviedo for the weekend. I will show you some beautiful sites, we can dine together and enjoy good food and wine, and then we can make love." (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) The girls having just been informed earlier about Juan Antonio's possible violent divorce, from his fiery, artistic ex-wife, Maria Elena (Penelope Cruz). Vicky instantly cautious puts up her guard. Cristina, even with her knowledge about Juan Antonio, is still curious and very willing to go. Vicky and her fianc Doug (Chris Messina) discuss their dislike of Cristina's free-loving, spirited personality. Vicky telling Doug, "She sometimes gets on my nerves with her crack-pot love affairs." Doug stating," Cristina's annoying, with her forever-unsatisfied struggle artist image. Her contempt with normalcy in a relationship is nothing more than a boring clich." (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) Doug and Vicky soon rethink that discussion after meeting with Cristina for lunch one afternoon. Cristina describes to her friends the beautiful lovemaking that occurred with her and Maria Elena one day. How it was just a passing moment. That Cristina didn't feel the need to label. Vicky and Doug both remarking and asking question to her story. Both enthralled on the lure and luster of the tale The Spanish guitar can be heard throughout various parts of the film. Casting a calming, yet seductive spell over its listeners. Possible making them go against their morals. Proven in this scene when Vicky is forced to dine alone with Juan Antonio one evening. Vicky anxiously ends a phone call from her fianc. Juan Antonio somewhat puzzled by her actions, "Why were you so nervous just now on the phone?" (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) Vicky would blame it all on the wine, and seducing sounds from the Spanish guitar player. No matter the excuses Vicky relaxes enough, for her to sleep with Juan Antonio. That moment leaves Vicky still feeling anxious and a bit puzzled by her actions. Some find music to be nothing more than a distraction. Witnessed in a scene one night when Vicky and Doug are dining with a friend couple of his. The music starts playing and Vicky becomes slightly disengaged from the tables' conversation. Isn't that the beauty of music though, its ability to mesmerize and transport listeners, even if it's just for a brief moment in time? Vicky is over come by the music and feeling so completely relaxed, that she zones out. Just like that listening to the sound of music can re-spark a memory. Vicky is taken back to that night spent with Juan Antonio. Vicky Cristina Barcelona is like watching a travel brochure come to life. Allowing visitors or in this case its viewers to experience all that Barcelona has to offer. The setting and backdrop of the film is just beautiful. Offering activities like strolling along cobblestone streets. Viewing buildings designed from famed artists like Gaudi. Leisurely afternoon picnics in the country hillsides and late night dinner's in one of Barcelona's many quant cafes. Roger Ebert had this to say about Barcelona, "Allen gives us a tour of the glories of Barcelona, the city of Gaudi and Miro, the excuse being that Juan Antonio is showing the girls the sites. As Hollywood learned long ago, there's nothing like a seductive location to lend interest to whatever is happening in the foreground." In the end, Vicky and Cristina make their travel back home. While walking to the plane you see them gazing forward and possible wondering, is there a fine line between wants and desires. Does the audience need more of a conclusion, or is left pondering well enough. According to Roger Ebert's review, he had this to say about the film, "The actors are attractive, the city magnificent, the love scenes don't get all sweaty and everybody finishes the summer a little wiser, and with a lifetime of memories. What more could you ask." No matter what's left to ponder, the audience can surely agree Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona provides a majestic lore into Spanish culture with its majestic scenery and tranquil sounds. . Taking its viewers on a Catalan mini vacation, that only a summer spent in Barcelona can provide.

Lets start with the bad:I refuse to believe that Bollywood still doesn't have the technology to make Krrish run faster and jump farther. Why? Because at the end he actually beasts out and ends up doing what an adolescent Superman could do (except for the x-ray vision and laser eyes). He was ridiculously fast and strong. The jumping looked SO lame. The good:Awesome acting. Hrithik is the ONLY actor in Bollywood that could be taken seriously as a superhero, and he's definitely one of my favorites. Priyanka is an absolute goddess whose talent, intelligence and beauty are rivaled by few. As good as they both are, its their chemistry was surprising.The story itself really had very little similarity to Koi... Mil Gaya until they tell you what the connection is. Its not like Spiderman where Spiderman 2 is the same shit. Totally different story line but they intertwined nicely. I was also really impressed by what Hrithik does after the Asian dude gets hurt. He looked like he knew what he was doing with that sword and staff. Glad to see Bollywood putting SOME effort into their action and fight sequences now... after seeing the atrocious fight scene in Main Hoon Na... I had almost lost hope. I think the visuals were more a lack of effort than anything... everything else was awesome.

Lynch colpisce ancora e si allaccia a tutto il suo cinema da Twin Peaks ad Inland Empire che riproporr diverse scene di quest'opera. Ancora una volta l'incoscio di Lynch il vero regista.

What are James Arness (Floyd Clegg), aka Marshal Matt Dillon, and Hank Worden (Luke Clegg) doing as bad guys? Not the roles I know them for but they sure do a good job here. Never noticed how Lurch-like, large, Arness was. Man, he's scary and when he scoops up Denver (Joanne Dru), you fear for her welfare. Led by the ever-nasty Uncle Shiloh (Charles Kemper), the Cleggs are the overarching black cloud following this optimistic Mormon wagon train. Ben Johnson's history brought me back to this film and I'm glad it did. Thanks True West magazine. I had underrated it upon first viewing and, if anything, this film is near four stars. What a wonderful way to end a day pursued by the black dog. Coincidently, this old oater and another, fall in-between viewings of the Lethal Weapon series. Well, I know which ones are classics, which ones will remain classics and which ones will not. Enjoy.

Guy Pearce was perfect as Andy Warhol, while Sienna Miller did a good job. Hayden Christensen played well Bob Dylan (under another name because it is still not sure Eddie had an affair with him). There was something wrong with the direction and the screenplay, but yet both surprisingly great. There are way many movies showing imposant figures falling from high, but the beautiful Factory Girl really joined me, and I undeniably fell in love with this film. Every single person sould find something to love in this movie.
