Flaherty (Nanook of The North) for this exotic love story set (and shot on location) in Tahiti. It can be a little disorienting to follow but overall the effect of this silent stunner is dazzling, a sad reminder of what a magnificent filmmaker Murnau was.

But in the end it doesn't really deliver and becomes a girls against boys that ends up in a tie. Nobody really wins, the boys looses in number of kills, but he girls losses the sharp edge and the movie ends up with an unsatisfied audience.
Rainer K (br) wrote: Anthology-Projekte ziehen ihren Reiz meist daraus, dass sie verschiedene Regisseure mit unterschiedlichen Stilen und viele bekannte Gesichter zusammenbringen.Fr 7 Tage in Havanna gilt das nur bedingt. Zwar bekommen wir Josh Hutcherson, Daniel Brhl, Emir Kusturica und Elia Suleiman zu Gesicht aber die richtige Starpower sucht man hier vergeblich. Von den Regisseuren kannte ich auch nur Benicio del Toro, Gaspar No, Laurent Cantet bzw. Elia Suleiman vom Hrensagen. Abgesehen davon bevorzuge ich Episodenfilme, bei denen die einzelnen Segmente strker zusammenhngen (dies kann unterschiedlich subtil passieren, oft wirkt es dann auch zu brachial aber damit kann ich besser leben, als mit fast gnzlich voneinander getrennten Episoden wie in diesem Fall).Ein Schnes an diesen Filmen ist es aber natrlich danach seinen Lieblingspart herauszupicken und dann darber zu diskutieren. In meinem Fall ist es ein Trio, angefhrt von Elia Suleimans Diary of a Beginner". In diesem Segment konfrontiert uns der Regisseur/Hauptdarsteller mit Tati-esken statischen Takes eines Mannes auf der Suche nach etwas, der durch Havanna wandert. Es ist alles sehr ereignislos und sehr komisch (v.a. Fidel Castros TV-Ansprachen).Gleich danach reiht sich in meiner persnlichen Rangliste der Beitrag Jam Session" von Pablo Trapero, in dem wir einen Tag mit Emir Kusturica verbringen, der nicht nur ziemlich hsslich, sondern auch ziemlich betrunken ist. Dabei verbrdert dieser sich mit seinem Chauffeur, der gleichzeitig ein begnadeter Trompeter ist. Kusturica wird in diesem Segment fr sein knstlerisches Werk bei einem kubanischen Filmfestival geehrt, aber das ist nur nebenschlich, ebenso wie die Querelen mit seiner Frau - es geht eigentlich doch nur um Musik.An dritter Stelle, aber nicht weit abgeschlagen: Benicio del Toro's Regiedebut und Startschuss der sieben Tage. In El Yuma" verkrpert Josh Hutcherson einen amerikanischen Schauspielstudenten, der mit seinem Fahrer/Assistenten (?) auf Sauftour geht.Viel Rum, viel Sex und einige Zigarren und natrlich viel tolle Musik. Im Prinzip, das gleiche Rezept wie der unterschtzte Animationsfilm Chico & Rita, nur nicht ganz so gut. Schn anzusehen, teils echt lustig, wenn auch mit einigen Hngern und langatmigen Strecken.

Dylan C (nl) wrote: This is a hauntingly plausible portrait of one of the most under-studied controversies of modern adolescence. Though fictional, every ounce of it is clearly inspired by real-life accounts, perhaps most obvious the Columbine shootings. The film delves deeply into the processes involved in such incidents, from the obtaining of firearms to the often ambiguous motivations. However, this focus on the technical side is overshadowed by the filmmakers choice to show the perpetrators for what they really are: people with loving families. With hobbies. With a sense of humor. That's the real punch of the movie: You're given the people. You're given their objectives. In essence, you're given the ending; But everything in between is what most of us don't even consider when discussing this social phenomenon. Save their drive to do the unthinkable, they are just like you and me. In fact, were I to meet these characters, I can honestly see myself getting along just fine with them. *spoiler ahead* The ending will stay with me forever. By the time I witnessed what was hinted at through the entire film, it FELT like I was watching actual security footage of a school shooting. My mind began to spin. I was in awe at the cold spectacle of dozens fleeing for their lives. I was heartbroken to see the young men I had begun to sympathize with partake in such a harrowing act. And, above all, I was infuriated by the apparent delight they took with each kill. For a good bit of this portion, I was convinced these were no longer the people I had just witnessed spending time with their mothers and fathers. Then, just before taking their own lives, there is a moment in which they debate when to pull the triggers (the universally relatable moment of deciding the definition of "on three"). Something about this moment made me realize that somewhere in those clumzy killing machines were remnants of logic; in a word, humanity... It's late. Maybe some day i'll come back to this one when I know exactly what the fuck I trying to say.

sabrina i (fr) wrote: A delightful comedy about the clash between traditional and modern values. The parents of a small community are horrified by the growing popularity of television among their children. They are worried that it will make the Japanese people 'dumb'. Two little boys of one family decide to throw up a fight with their parents. They decide to not say a word till their parents give in and buy them a television set. From this stems some pretty funny misunderstandings and gossip among the women of the community.The acting by the two boys is wonderful and charming especially the younger one. It's simply a joy to watch them. The film is pretty simple and straight-forward in what it has to say. In this little community when someone buys a washing machine it's news! Ozu presents us a world where being in a hurry is an unknown feeling. Everything takes it's time from the growth of relationships to resolving conflicts. In the end; the older generation has to accept the world that is changing around them and moving faster than they are whether they are comfortable with it or not.

Sausages M (au) wrote: Imagine if Heathers went academic had a bit of heart and was set in a university instead of a high school- that's kind of what "Damsels In Distress" is, but it's so much more than that. As in "Last Days of Disco", Whit Stillman gives us a talky, philosophical film about humanity with added satire and bags of humour transmitted through oodles of witty dialogue. Besides that, it has an absolutely undeniable charm and works thoroughly well. Greta Gerwig is the stand-out performance here. Her turn as a neurotic, arrogant, pseudo-intellectual is an absolutely spot-on satire of your typical overly-confident student type.Besides all this, it works as a great satire of the university (college, in the American terms this movie is set in) experience- the over-seriousness, the overly-analytical day-to-day existence of what is essentially a soap opera with learning attached. The real genius here though was the filtration through the classic old-Hollywood romantic stylisation. There are few films I've watched and had a smile on my face throughout, but this was one of them.

If you are a 13-year old boy, this is the awesomest movie ever. Otherwise, it's got enough camp value to at least keep you watching.
