On the eve of his 25th birthday, the day he’s set to receive money from his trust fund, Rocco (Xian Lim) parties, gets drunk and loses all his money on a poker match. His dilemma: He has to produce the amount, otherwise he will lose the client he needs to defeat his father’s TV commercial production company. Meanwhile, Rocky (Kim Chiu) also needs money to pay the rent, otherwise her family will be homeless. There’s only one way for Rocco to be able to get money from his trust fund: Fulfill the conditions set by his grandmother and that is to get married. Rocky agrees to act as Rocco’s pseudo wife in exchange for a “talent fee.” They seal the deal. As they live like a married couple, Rocco and Rocky face one problem after another, forcing them with no alternative but to reconcile their differences and work with each other. Complication arises when they start to feel for each other, with their bond getting closer.

The supposed recreation of the period is so... so... Oh, I can't even begin to analyze it. I can see why no one has bothered to write anything here. Feels like some kids had some money and time to throw something together over a weekend and the audacity to try to trade it on the name of the extremely untalented director's father. I try not to give up on any film until the final reel has played out but I had such a hard time getting to the end of this one. Pitiful. Pitiful. Anyone who took part in the making of this should never work on another film.

Alex P (br) wrote: Kiefer Sutherland plays Jack Bauer's evil doppelganger in this straight-to-the-bargain-bin hidden gem crime thriller. The script is laden with small twists and turns and the big payoff is wholly plausible while being entirely unpredictable. Also has one of the better endings of any film I have ever seen. Find it if you can.

Tatsuhito K (it) wrote: Manhattan is definitely one of my favorite films of all time. It not only is a smart and bittersweet human study, but also a witty comedy heavily based on the dialogue. The characters are so damn likable, and everything they say cuts through our heart. Just like Linklater's Before trilogy, this movie inspires me in many ways.
Simeon T (gb) wrote: I've come to the conclusion I don't like art films. I haven't seen many that could truly be classified as such (and this is the only "transgressive" one I've seen, if I recall) but I'm pretty secure in that evaluation of myself. I used to think I just didn't get them, which is still a possibility, at least to some degree. But I think what is most likely is that I get them conceptually, but they don't appeal to me in the least. With a film like this one, I'm not sure which is the case, or if its a mix or something else entirely. What I do know is that I don't care. All I recall noticing is the structure of the movie: a mostly slow, meandering pace, with unexpected suddenness in spots which involve some change in the time/setting, until the ending scene, which suddenly becomes fast, chaotic and intense. This is identical to the structure of one of those really long, drawn out nightmares that can last much of the night, and culminates in the early morning, usually leaving you with a headache and a sense of being shaken and fatigued. This may have been intentional on the part of Bertolucci or it may not have been. Either way, my opinion of it is the same as the rest of the film. I don't care either for or about it.
