(fr) wrote: In the ostensible vein of "Straw Dogs", "No Through Road" asks the audience to put their collective brain on hold and not think terribly hard about what's going on in the story.
(ag) wrote: captivating !i actually love this movie and hou's cafe lumiere very much, from the atmosphere, music, the dialogues, and everything, watching his movies is just feels like home, but i just never understand the whole things, the symbolism things, i always feels my own interpretation is never enough, but still i love this movie..
(es) wrote: A fair little movie at best - but was on a low budget. Nice to see Peter Coyote and a great performance by him. Peter Boyle gives his final performance in this film but it's very evident how frail he is. Story of a 12 yr old girl who's loss of her mother and troubled relationship with her father takes her to her grandfather's (Coyote) ranch to work and live..

THE ONE ABOVE IS A MOVIE ABOUT TWO RIVAL GANG MEMBERS WHO FALL IN LOVE BY TADEO GARCIA RELEASED IN 2004
(us) wrote: The movie is slow, but never boring. It has a specific rhythm to it that allows you to follow the characters around and get to know them. The direction is never imposing and is nice and simple. This is all rounded off with some nice, subtle performances that work really well. If Hollywood made the same movie they'd take away the simplicity and destroy it.
(us) wrote: You are told the ending the movie the very first frame, but when you reach the conclusion, it still knocks you off your feet. It's exactly what the title says it is, it's 71 fragments of a loosely connected story, with scenes ranging from a couple of seconds to a couple of minutes. You meet a number of characters, and it makes your brain work as if it were solving a puzzle, trying to figure out where the crossroad is going to be for all these people to interconnect. Haneke makes another statement here about violence in the media, and this one I feel has the most clarity and effectiveness. Haneke has this way of filming that makes you dread the upcoming moments, anticipating something awful. Then the atrocity happens, and you still weren't ready for it.
(de) wrote: Even though the chemistry between Harrison Ford and Sean Connery is worthy of an Academy Award, the film is intellectually weaker than Raiders, but an improvement on Doom.
(es) wrote: Only 70 minutes long, "Orchestral Rehearsal" holds a unique spot in Federico Fellini's catalog. More reminiscent of Luis Buuel than Fellini, this strange allegory occurs almost entirely within one room: the hall of an ancient church that has been re-purposed for a small orchestra's practice sessions. Popes and bishops are buried beneath its stone floor, so it's ostensibly a structure of historical import.In the opening section, Fellini's camera (pursuing a fictional television documentary) roams about the space, capturing musicians' testimonies about their chosen instruments. Typically, a player emphasizes his instrument's unique importance or personifies its character in a loving way. The musicians are mostly unassuming, homely sorts -- ordinary, working-class people rather than arty elitists.Various bits of lighthearted noodling invade the dialogue. The bassoon and trombones add comical noises. When an overweight harpist waddles across the room, others jokingly play Laurel & Hardy's trademark "Cuckoo Song." The atmosphere is loose and spontaneous.Finally, the conductor arrives and the formal practice begins. The resulting music has Nino Rota's usual carnivalesque flavor and, frankly, seems like somewhat of a rehash. (This was Rota's final collaboration with Fellini, as the composer died the following year.)The conductor -- unnamed, like everyone else -- is more of a standard type, and sternly directs players about flaws in their performances. But as he takes a break in his makeshift quarters, he laments bygone days when conductors were feared and commanded more authority. As he rambles on, the parallels with post-fascist Italy become obvious.Meanwhile, the musicians come to represent the common people, and the ensemble is often described in terms of a labor union. There is talk of the musician being freed from "a state of intolerable servility" and instead becoming "an integrated worker, conscious of his contribution to mass culture." A conflict threatens.Inevitably, the group revolts against the conductor's symbolic tyranny. This is where the film turns much more flamboyant and surreal. Anyone bored with the first half will be grateful that he stuck around. Come on, who doesn't want to see a giant metronome?

(kr) wrote: I watched it & enjoyed the plot. I thought Donald Goines did a fantastic job of depicting a story that showed the human condition. Other than Regan Gomez the actors also did a great job depicting the characters. The story was a little harsh but all in all it was a very good movie.
