Elin G (gb) wrote: Decent romantiic drama wrongfully marketed as a comedy. Suffered heavaly from being an adaption, the story didn't translate well but that is somewhat compensated by good actors. I enjoyed the story about the lover and mistress the most, it felt new to me.
Charles P (au) wrote: The extravagantly beautiful landscapes and noble ambition cannot be faulted, but Mr. Luhrmann's characters are too shallow and his ideas to derivative and schmaltzy to achieve the sweeping epic for which he's aiming.

Alan N (fr) wrote: In many ways a rather typical Tom Cruise vehicle, but the sci-fi elements are done well and the action scenes are, on the whole, enjoyable.
Andrew G (fr) wrote: Finally! After stumbling through some of the worst of January, it seems that I have received a bit of a reprieve with this Spanish comedy called "A Perfect Day", starring Benicio Del Toro, Tim Robbins, Olga Kurylenko, Melanie Thierry, and Fedja Stukan.This film takes place during a lull in the Balkin states during the War in Bosnia if I am correct. We follow a group of aid workers as they simply try to take a corpse out of a well and the rope they are using snaps, meaning that they need to find a new one.The performances in this film are great across the board. Del Toro and Robbins in particular are excellent. They all have great chemistry and all act like normal people trying to do extraordinary things in a place.One thing that is also very well done is showing the strained relationship between the local people and the foreigners. A scene in particular stands out as a matter a fact. Tim Robbins goes to a store to buy some new rope with the group's interpreter, played by Stukan. This scene is pretty tense where we are hinted that these people don't want the body out of the well. It's never really explained or elaborated on, but that is realistic. The main group of characters are seemingly in the dark most of the time. Their concerns are largely ignored by the U.N. and they are mostly left alone by the locals.This film has a simple premise that moves along fairly well with the help of the great performances and the great pacing. The camera work does a good job in showing the rubble of a once alive civilization while also showing the natural muck of the world. It's as if the foreign powers are not doing much to help bring a sense of return to life.Nonetheless, I recommend checking this film out. And while there is a seemingly unnecessary former love that is inserted in this film, it isn't obnoxious in the least. If you like shows like M.A.S.H. or films from the Italian Neorealism period, then I think you'll have a good time with this one.3.5/5
