Jesse O (gb) wrote: A pretty good Korean comedy all things considered. One that covers some universal themes over regret about not being able to achieve the dreams you had as a young adult but weren't able, the fear of death, emotional attachments, among other things. I found the film to be a surprisingly sweet story about a mother's dedication and how she would put her life on hold for the well-being of her son. Giving up on her own dreams, wants, and desires in order to take care of her son in the face of the extreme poverty they face. So naturally when Mal-soon, 74 years old, comes out of a photo studio after a self-portrait, looking like her 20-year-old self, she uses this opportunity to live out the life she couldn't have. She becomes the lead singer in her grandson's band, she falls in love once again, and all the other things that she couldn't do before due to taking care of her son. This is not saying that she'd have rather done these things in place of being an irresponsible mother, but she never got to live her life before due to the fact that she was raising her son. And that's what good mothers, and parents overall, do. They sacrifice everything they have for their children. I've always been of the opinion that just because you have children that does not mean that you have to give up your own life. Yes, your kids should be the #1 priority in all cases, but so many people give up their own lives just because they have children and I just think that's sad. Of course some people are forced to give up their lives in order to work more than one job to take care of their children, but in those cases it's what must be done. So, in some ways, Mal-soon's doing all of this once becoming young again mostly to live out her fantasies and not because she wishes that she never had a son, whom she very clearly loves. One complaint, however, and this isn't even anything related to the film itself, is that the subtitles were at least 5 seconds behind the actual dialogue that was spoken and it was really annoying to keep up. You might ask yourself 'it's korean, so why does it matter if you can't keep up? you don't understand the language anyway' and that's a perfectly reasonable response. Problem comes in the fact that sometimes a character would stop speaking and THEN the subtitles would pop up for something he/she said like 5-10 seconds earlier. It is annoying as shit and it really hurt my enjoyment of the film. It essentially makes the punchline to some of the jokes themselves pointless. It ruins the film's comedy in some respects. And that's Netflix's fault, so hopefully they fix that. The acting is strong and there is some sentimentality, but nothing as bad as some of the worst Korean comedies/dramas that I've seen throughout the years. I think it actually works in this movie because it does showcase a mother's dedication to her son, no matter what the circumstance, and what she would do for him, and her grandchildren. So that aspect of the film actually does kind of work, in my view. This might not be the most complex of films, but it does do a good job of at least giving the characters some slight depth. Or at least the appearance of one. Not a perfect movie, the comedy is hit and miss even without the shitty subtitles making them pointless. It's well-acted, so no complaints there. I liked this movie and it's a perfectly solid Netflix watch. It won't set your world on fire, but it will make you feel good.

Caitlin F (us) wrote: I absolutely adore this movie. Infact, I even liked it better than the first one, because I felt it was much more of a "feel good" movie than the first, but still managed to remain really funny.

Jack P (ca) wrote: A generally likable 80's high school comedy. Only truly notable for Micheal J. Fox, who gives a great comedic performance. Not great, but entertaining,

mirabella 1 (de) wrote: Surprisingly good effort, particularly from the late Ms Fawcett, this made-for-TV film is vastly superior to the majority of the ho-hum midday fare on offer.Solid, credible & sympathetic performances all-round with a tight, well-edited script make for a gripping & harrowing film experience.

Grant S (us) wrote: Interesting, thought-provoking story of civilian life in wartime.Paris, 1942. With the Germans in control and her Jewish theatreproducer-director husband on the run from them, an actress, MarionSteiner (played by Catherine Deneuve) is left with the task of runninghis theatre. She starts rehearsals for a new play, written by herhusband, and hires a new director and a leading man, Bernard Granger(Gerard Depardieu). It's make or break, as a flop will see the theatrego bankrupt. This, with the Germans clamping down on everything and thecity's biggest drama critic an anti-semite and Nazi pawn, means it'sgoing to be tough. Meanwhile, (known to her) her husband is hiding inthe cellar, and he can't help but offer suggestions on the finerdetails of the play...On the face of it, this sounds like the makings of a decent comedy, afarce parodying Nazism and the theatre. While it has its comicalmoments, The Last Metro is most definitely a drama, and a good one.Quite claustrophobic in the way the French people are forced to livetheir lives, but that would be accurate for a civilian population inwartime, especially in an occupied country.Has some interesting themes too, not least being the inanity ofbigotry. There is a strong sense of perseverance, survival and "theshow must go on". Catherine Deneuve sparkles in the lead role. Good work too from GerardDepardieu as Bernard Granger. Solid supporting cast.On the negative side, is quite slow moving at times and there are somedetours which didn't add anything to the plot. The conclusion feelsquite rushed and there isn't a great profundity about it - it's more awrap-up than anything else. The movie is more about the journey thanthe destination.

Philip S (nl) wrote: An odd but entertaining film. It has a bit of an indie vibe which I did not expect. The cast is relatively strong, with Patton Oswalt as the surprising anchor. I can't pretend to know what the message of the film was supposed to be, and the action is a bit too obvious, but it does have a certain off-beat flavor that I appreciated. Not a winner, but not a failure either. Theron fans will enjoy it.
