Miracle in Milan torrent reviews
(fr) wrote: This film is absolutely dreadful. While wonderfully acted, the movie is mean and ugly toward women, treating them as ignorant and crazy for no explained reason. Hilary Swank's character is so pathetic that when the third act occurs, its less a shock to the audience and more what-the-f***. The final scene of the film, Tommy Lee drunkenly dancing away as his barge sails up river is so anti-climactic and confusing it's borderline infuriating. One is left wondering just how they can get back the wasted hours of their life watching this terrible film.
(kr) wrote: For everyone who was ever a put upon high school nerd, and who still remembers those days, this is the film for you. Funny, sweet and something you can watch with the whole family and not feel embarrassed to let your kids or parents see! It is also a great homage to the Lord of the Rings films, with beautiful cinematography and a great score to tie it all together.

(es) wrote: Rod Lurie has returned to his original combination of preoccupations for "Nothing But The Truth", the film that will, if there is any justice in the world (and at the box-office), arc his reputation from cult indie filmmaker for the educated-elite into the most important mainstream movie maker in the business, able to entertain with edge of your seat suspense while quietly informing you about the most important elements in our society.Clearly, "Nothing But The Truth" was inspired by the Valerie Plame/Judy Miller incident: the film focuses on a curious relationship that develops between a reporter (Kate Beckinsale) and a spy (Vera Farmiga) when the former "outs" the latter in a newspaper story. Yet anyone expecting a combination of docudrama and roman-a-clef will be in for a surprise. Rather than remain slavishly true to the details, or even the essence, of the real-life situation, Lurie employs the premise but loosely, in order to explore those issues that most matter to him: the powers of the press and the politicos, as well as the impact of their natural conflict on the all-important First Amendment.
(fr) wrote: Fantastically edited and superbly acted. This might be Audrey Hepburn's finest performance and her most unusual. This film reminded me a lot of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf", but it wasn't nearly so funny or so bitter. It struck a great compromise between bitter realism and outright romanticism that really worked for me.
