(it) wrote: John Kransinski's brengt weinig vernieuwend voort in zijn regiedebuut, dat degelijk aanvoelt als je standaard disfunctionele familiedrama waarin de problemen magisch oplossen in de laatste akte. Het is dankzij kleine interacties tussen Margo Martindale en andere acteurs dat het verhaal enige ademruimte weet te vinden, en best makkelijk weg te kijken valt.
(jp) wrote: A tale about youthful choices, mistakes, and determination. not your standard moral tale but pretty well-acted and directed. the ending leaves a bewildering taste though.

Iranians live in an artificially prude world that actually protects them from the idiotic-ness of western world make efforts to go idiotic. Desire here seems superficial although love is everywhere. The story is very well balanced and i felt surprised to root for everybody in the film. May god be great. Maybe god is great. The outcome is not obvious or formulaic, but it does ring true.

I understand what its message was while also getting a laugh out of it -I saw many people who acted like the characters in this film in high school here...This is a great film and accurate portrayal of how the media and pop culture can influence its rural audience (specifically the youth in this case.) This film also has somewhat of a cult following in Iowa...it has some things that only someone who has lived in Iowa would spot: Eating at a (crappy)restuarant present at every mall in Iowa-Diamond daves. Kids working at Apac- a now dufunct telemarketing firm that every high school kid worked at in the 90s, and the scenes shot at the ped mall in Iowa city, specifically the field house...so props to who ever made this movie..they definitely paid attention to the details...unfortunately only an iowan would get it tho i think.

(us) wrote: Notable for its look at the art/exhibition of film through the eyes of one young boy from the sticks of Italy, this coming of age story shows how that love ultimately leads to his attainment of a better life. It's a fun and relatable story for anyone who grew up loving -- and continues to love -- movies, and recognizes film's influence on their lives. While visually beautiful and chock full of fascinating social commentary, the film doesn't completely gel for me tonally. Like fellow Italian, Sergio Leone often tries, director, Giuseppe Tornatore seems hell-bent on fusing overly goofy imagery, slapstick, and potty humor with often dire, depressing content or overly-saccharine schmaltz. Roberto Benigni seems to be the only Italian that can make this type of mixture work (see Life is Beautiful). All kidding aside, there have been plenty of films that can accomplish this to great effect, but this just isn't one of them. Maybe there's something I'm losing in translation, but I either can't take the film's emotional scenes seriously or I can't laugh at its humor in light of its awful implications for the characters, or can't give props for a joke because it follows a manipulative moment of sappiness. Also off-putting is the film's use of completely ADR'd (dubbed) dialogue. No, I don't mean a re-dub in English. I viewed a subtitled copy. I'm referring to what appears to be a soundtrack made up exclusively of post-produced audio. Perhaps this was due to a technical limitation of Italian cinema at the time (only 1980s?), or (more than likely) is in keeping with Italian production techniques. Whatever it is, the dialogue comes across very goofy, stilted, and even completely out of synch at times. In many cases it even seems as if actors have been completely replaced on the film's soundtrack. Am I nitpicking? Maybe. But this is very distracting -- adding slight comedy where it doesn't belong. Visually, this is a well-directed/photographed film. The story itself is often cute, funny, heartwarming, and deep. Not to mention, it's also extremely nostalgic. [I also enjoy the transitions between child and grown-up Salvatore's life.] But, for me, these feelings and tones don't gel very well at all. It's as if Bugs Bunny directed all of the depressing scenes, Michael Bay directed the schmaltzy ones, and David Lynch directed the comedic moments. No, directed by David Cronenberg! ...or Ingmar Bergman. I dunno. Someone depressing.

(de) wrote: Very poor, elongated episode of CSI, but not as well written, directed or produced. Very mediocre plot, with no explanation what was going on or why, and with extraneous baddies of whom we have no idea how they fit in to the story. The sound quality made understanding the actors difficult, especially the inexplicably popular Sam Worthington who mumbles his way through the movie. He really is a Woodentop!
