Marcello Mastroianni gives a sensitive, finely judged performance as Enrico, a struggling journalist in the Rome of 1945. He receives a phone call informing him that his younger brother Lorenzo (Jacques Perrin) has died. Enrico recalls their long and difficult relationship; he was brought up by their poor but warm-hearted grandmother (Sylvie), Lorenzo was raised as a gentleman by a wealthy local aristocrat. Reunited in the Florence of the 1930s, Enrico becomes his spoilt brother's keeper, forever haunted by a sense of guilty responsibility towards a man he both hates and loves. Beautifully photographed by Giuseppe Rotunno, this austere, deeply-felt masterwork has been acclaimed as one of Zurlini's greatest achievements. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Ingela A (us) wrote: Alicia Vikander! Your expressive and fragile face portrays such an overwhelming range of emotion that you deserve to be called one of the best young stars working today. Hotell is surprisingly funny and offbeat and provides an enjoyable tale of healing. The idea of the hotel arises in a therapy session when Erika (Vikander) likens her depression to a story about a woman who saw life as a hotel, which allowed her to shed her skin and walk away from relationships and responsibilities while seeing life from various perspectives. It's one of those cases where, as Grand Hotel's Otternschlag might say, "People come, people go. Nothing ever happens." The vagabond way of picking up and walking away from one's troubles only provides temporary relief as Erika leads her peers on some ludicrous group exercises, which include medieval torture and anonymous sex. There is no escape from life's troubles, though, as the problems Erika and company face outside the hotel loom over their therapy follies like the cloud of depression the heroine can never seem to shake. It's a silly, messy affair rendered consistently watchable by the shaky Dogme-ish close-ups on Vikander's endlessly expressive face.Right after this film I also watched Blue Jasmine with one of my favorites Cate Blanchett and your performing is for sure in the same class as hers, if not even better!!

Craig R (kr) wrote: The chemistry of this movie works well. Not a lot of action, mainly drama and simple dialogue. But it's more a nice relaxing romance movie that doesn't end with a dead gay man or someone dying. It's cute and ends that way. Kevin Miranda being in the show of course makes the best eye candy a gay can rent. He's very sexy and uses it well as he quickly falls in love and stills the heart of Claude.

Mark G (kr) wrote: Stumbled on it by accident. Not too shabby, but a bit disjointed, and quite a sudden ending, but reasonable, and it does open your eyes.

Dennis L (de) wrote: Theres a compelling story in this movie and an idealism that's hard to not like. One of the best police/drug war movies to come in a very long time.

James H (nl) wrote: This was just BAD! I liked Li Bingbing. She's hot as usual. Her character doesn't do so much, which is a shame. The story is just crap. It didn't have much of depth and substance. There was little of interesting characters. Some weren't very likeable and some were just pure annoying. Acting was terrible from the cast. There's a lot of fail in this, in fact there's some epic fail. This doesn't have much to be really excited about. There were some scenes that I liked a bit. When they tried filming fight scenes, they just shot too close and I couldn't tell what the hell was going on. This is just a silly film with very little enjoyment to be found.

alan j (au) wrote: loved the concept....effective camera work and superior acting by Barry..this makes the film all the more believable and is a chilling variation on the JFK conspiracy

Patrick S (nl) wrote: awesome superaction cheese! the dialog is awful and the action is second rate at best... 2 reasons to see this... anderson, and a good laugh! i enjoyed it

Barney o (kr) wrote: WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The star of this classic show - Tom Hanks is brilliant here, every ounce of his character is so meaningful and beautifully played. Match this with an amazing cast, an amusing but thematically-realised plot with real sentimental value, as well as a great supporting cast, you've got yourself a film that stands the test of time for all the right reasons. Even now it doesn't feel datedWHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Some argue the themes are questionable, but I think they might be missing the point...VERDICT: A well told tale of one man - thanks to Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump' is a real and emotional classic

Candy R (it) wrote: Two rival reporters have to work together to uncover a conspiracy. Good cast.

Manuel M (es) wrote: very good movie. It really deserve attention

Aaron C (gb) wrote: Another fine Bergman flick. Anthony Perkins also plays his part like a true professional.

Russell L (ag) wrote: the claymation was cool. it gives the actors a surreal authenticity. the pacing is a little slow and the plot a bit depressing but overall enjoyable.
