(de) wrote: Following his brother John's death by drowning, Irishman Gerry (Gillen) flies to Singapore to help John's widow, Kim (Tay), with the funeral arrangements and the running of 'Mister John's', the bar the couple ran together. Before he left home, Gerry had just been made aware of his wife's affair with another man and so is glad of the opportunity to get away, despite such grim circumstances. In Singapore, Gerry discovers his brother's life was far more interesting than his own humdrum, stress filled existence. The locals hero-worshiped John and seem to expect Gerry to now fill his brother's shoes, an idea Gerry increasingly becomes tempted by.In the past couple of years, we've seen a growing trend of Western European film-makers heading abroad for their productions, filming in locales more visually interesting than their homeland, whilst taking advantage of economic incentives. So far, it's wielded positive results; Peter Strickland's 'Katalin Varga' and 'Berberian Sound Studio' (Romania and Italy respectively), Gareth Edwards' 'Monsters' (Mexico), Gareth Evans' 'The Raid' (Indonesia) and, debatable, Nicholas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives' (Thailand). In a couple of weeks we'll also see Sean Ellis' Philippines set 'Metro Manila'.The Irish husband and wife duo of Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy are the latest to pack their bags for more exotic climes, setting their second feature in Singapore. As a result they've made a film far more visually arresting than any film ever shot in their native Ireland.'Mister John' borrows heavily from various sources, yet never feels remotely stale or cliched. The contrast between the shy, retiring Gerry and the ultra-charismatic, almost mythical John is a descendant of the dynamic between Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles in Carol Reed's 'The Third Man'. A supernatural sub-plot suggesting Gerry's suicide can resurrect his brother's spirit reminds us of Robin Hardy's 'The Wicker Man', as we begin to question the Singapore natives' reasons for coaxing Gerry into sticking around, and Gerry himself begins to consider it may be a sacrifice worth making, given the love so many seem to have for his brother. The way the film deals with Gerry's naive attitude towards the prominence of the sex trade in his late brother's adopted country (the pub of the title is merely a front for prostitution) recalls Kubrick's 'Eyes Wide Shut'. Lastly, Gerry's comical attempts to recover a debt from an ex-pat German are similar to Jean-Pierre Leaud's bumbling stint as a private investigator in Truffaut's 'Stolen Kisses'.These, admittedly presumed on my part, influences blend together brilliantly into one of the most captivating films of the year. Gillen is an actor you'll likely have seen in a variety of small supporting roles but here shows he's a charismatic leading man, even when playing a character who essentially lacks such an attribute. We find ourselves backing his attempts to fill his brother's large shoes, even though we can see it all ending in disaster.Lawlor and Molloy's previous film, 'Helen', featured a teenage girl who, when asked by the police to play the part of a murder victim for a crime scene recreation, becomes obsessed with the dead girl. The subject of assuming someone else's identity is obviously one the married duo are heavily interested in. It's often said that the best film-makers essentially make the same film over and over again through their careers and, if this is the case, I look forward to further explorations of this theme from Lawlor and Molloy.

There is maybe a bit too much of a love-in between the three artists and it would have been nice to see them give their honest opinions of each other's techniques in person, but when they are jamming together it does feel like a small piece of musical history is being made.
(fr) wrote: La hermosa eslovaca Bobulova se hace un gran papel y Shirley MacLaine hace un muy buen papel de Coco en sus ultimos dias. La pelicula es interesante pero se queda atollada en muchos puntos sin interes de esta gran mujer, algo similar a lo que paso con Edith Piaf en "La mome", aunque esta ultima es de mucha mas factura. Biografias que se llenan de datos irrelevantes, como lo mostro Juan Forn en "El Malpensante" No. 97, historias que se llenan de datos amarallistas para poderselo vender al publico general dejando atras la verdadera esencia de esa persona que influencio a tantos. De seguro esta version sera mejor que la anunciada "Coco avant Chanel" protagonizada por Audrey Tautou pues queda claro que entre mas comercial mas tienen que inventar para vender.

First, I am not a Mariah Carey basher nor lover, don't even know her. But she nails this part. Mira Sorvino, as usual is a class act in a very sensitive role. Arthur Nascarella is absolutely perfect as the mob boss. Where has he been? Where is he now? Well I understand he was a cop for 20 years and a marine for 9. He certainly looks the part (either). "Wisegirls" does not even appear in his movie credits. Ignore whatever you have read or heard about this movie. Want do give your friends a treat? Then invite them over for a viewing of "WISEGIRLS" and have a blast. They will love you for it. I have, several times. And it has never failed. Many often return for a second viewing. It's just that kind of movie. Oh. The plot. I haven't talked about it because there are a couple of twists that could ruin it for you. Just know that it involves a very sensitive girl who has had a bad experience, goes to live with her grandmother temorarily and gets a job in an Italian resturant. There she meets and bonds with two other waitresses. It is the experiences that these three girls share that make the movie. There are adult situations, graphic violence and crime. There is also fun and laughter. What a wonderful combination for a group show. See it! See it!!!
