Games of Love and Chance
The life of a band of teenager in a suburb near Paris. But instead of showing what would be the "urban legend" of this kind of poor suburb (violence, rapes...), Abdelatif Kechiche shows us what's the daily life of those guys: not much to do, not much dreams. Still, some of them have fun rehearsing for a play. Among those "players", Lydia, long time friend of Krimo... And Krimo, a bit shy, finds himself in love with this joyful girl.

(gb) wrote: See No Evil was a surprising decent horror flick yet its sequel drops considerably in quality. It starts quite promisingly following on from the finale of the original within a matter of an hour yet it soon becomes clear that little progress has been made and instead we just have the same thing within a horribly bland environment containing repetitive shots and unimaginative scenes. The characters are critically unlikable, one or two were cringeworthy with awful acting. Whilst action is brutal once more its not particularly entertaining but very predictable. Kane makes a good monster but See no Evil should have been a one hit wonder.
(it) wrote: I watch documentaries all of the time, but Spinning Plates really made me feel connected to each and everyone of its characters. When one goes into a restaurant you aren't simply eating the food it is art, love, and nourishment. Spinning Plates was heartfelt and eye opening to say the least. Working in restaurants almost all of my life I can truly identify with the passion and sacrifice that goes into the process. Within this film you get to see three very different stories each with different talents and restaurants, but there is one thing in common between each of them. Each of them wants and strives to share their love with their patrons. Spinning Plates made me laugh and even tear up to see the struggles and triumph each one of these restaurants faces. By far one of my favorite docs this year!
(fr) wrote: Adam Deacon certainly hit home with Anuvahood. I loved how it subtly parodized Kidulthood while still bringing it's own original comedic vibe. Adam Deacon put on a fantastic performance as the flamboyant and overzealous Kenneth, who was obviously a spinoff of Deacon's role as Jay in Kidulthood. The casting was well done, the performers nailed their roles and had some real fun chemistry. Deacon and Michael Vu wrote a great script, packed with amusing dialogues and some vibrantly funny scenes. Adam Deacon put his expertise of rap music to good use as well, the soundtrack was awesome and very well used. The Wannabe Gangster montage was some extraordinary filmmaking for sure. Overall this movie was a successful comedy that featured a unique style of directing and production. A smashing urban comedy."It's a badman sweet, get me?!"

(mx) wrote: Although the plot might sound a little sappy and sentimental, the performances, especially those of Jack Black and the children, ensure that it never falls into that trap. But, don't make the mistake of thinking that lack of saccharine sentimentality means lacsk of heart; Black brims with a kind of electricity and joy, which, even the most world-weary and cynical amongst us would find it hard not to get swept along with. As this type of movie goes, School of Rock is just about the best there is, with the exception, maybe, of Sister Act. And, for a music-based film to be mentioned in the same breath as Sister Act is very high praise indeed.
(jp) wrote: Number one its ballsy, I mean really a comedy about abortion is just not the type of film that is made too often. Number two, Laura Dern is one of the bet actors alive and here she is given a really great character. Ruth is a woman who really only cares about herself and she becomes the unwilling pawn in the ideological tug of war that ensues. As unlikeable as Ruth is at times, we really do feel for her and Laura Dern makes that happen. Alexander Payne ingeniously parodies both sides of the issue but it never leaves the realm of believability.
(br) wrote: A gambler takes a hapless fellow under his wing, but when he falls for the wrong woman, their lives could be threatened.Paul Thomas Anderson's feature film debut is a slow-moving but compelling drama. Phillip Baker Hall and John C. Reilly, who would later become PTA alums, play characters reminiscent of their careers as a whole -- Hall a tough, restrained fatherly figure and Reilly a dumb, doe-eyed everyman. Usually these characters are confined to the background, but when PTA focuses on them, they are compelling.The plot isn't much to write home about, and the last-act reveal isn't terribly surprising, but the film marches along inoffensively.Overall, PTA's debut wasn't the harbinger of greatness that one might expect, but it's certainly worthy of his oeuvre.

(nl) wrote: Undeniable fun is to be had while viewing Alex Cox's modern spaghetti western, which involuntarily bridges the gap (if there's even a gap to bridge) between El Topo and Pulp Fiction. An A-grade performance from The Clash's late Joe Strummer, and fantastic cameos from Dennis Hopper, Elvis Costello, and Jim Jarmusch. This is 86 minutes of good times.

(fr) wrote: Not as solid as say "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch" were, but was still pretty awesome and entertaining. The performances from nearly every actor was awesome, the story was entertaining and it just felt good to watch this kind of a Guy Ritchie film again.

(gb) wrote: With old-style values (too much old, even shocking in modern culture, but Ok, you can forget about them taking the time when the movie was donde under consdieration), it is a group-of-guys story, with some women to maintain the romantic interest. A little dull in a good proportion of the movie, but with funny isolated scenes in the middle played by curious characters and (more interesting than them) nice animals. Nice end.
