Stuart K (es) wrote: Directed by Franois Ozon, (8 Women (2002) and Swimming Pool (2003), adapted from the play by Pierre Barillet and Jean-Pierre Gr (C)dy, this is an amusing and silly French farce that got popularity in the UK when Orange subtitled it their way in some cinema adverts. Now that you can see what they're saying, it's an OK film, it does stuggle to hold your attention, but it captures the period it's set in quite well. In 1977, in a rural part of France, Suzanne Pujol (Catherine Deneuve) is the housewife, (or Potiche, as they call it in France) of local businessman Robert Pujol (Fabrice Luchini), who owns an umbrella factory in town. But, there's trouble when the local work force go on strike, and won't compromise with Robert, much to the concern of the local mayor Maurice Babin (G (C)rard Depardieu), who tells Robert how bad the strike will be for the town. Then, Robert is taken ill, and is unable to negotiate anything with the workers, not that he would. So, Suzanne ends up becoming the boss and she sorts out the union dispute and breathes new life into the factory along the way, much to Robert's ire, and Maurice takes a liking to her, as they used to go out years ago. It's a silly comedy but it's firmly grounded in theatrical roots, with long takes in a single setting, but despite capturing the kitschness and gaudiness of the 1970's, and the cast giving wonderfully silly performances, there's something missing, it's lacking a certain something.
Charles R (es) wrote: I really liked lots of the "everyman superhero" movies that were really popular for a couple of years, like Kick-Ass and Super. What mostly sets this one apart is Harrelson with, (mock gasp), an amazing performance. It's like he's got his own super senses, knows exactly what aspect of his complicated and fascinating character to play up at what time (emotionally, the movie at some point hits just about every point of the spectrum you could imagine), even if it doesn't seem like the obvious choice. Also, unlike "Super, this played up the mental illness angle well, and knew what exactly to do with it.

Nick K (de) wrote: I'm sure there's a message to this movie, other than the message that we should pray a lot and hope for miracles, but I failed to see it.It's a good film but I just find religious fanatics hard to relate with, let alone commiserate with. From a secular viewpoint, would have less trouble understanding alien cultures than these ultra religious communities.

Jaime L (us) wrote: Cute little "horror" film, fun for the whole family! Unfortunately it takes some time to get going, the characters aren't interesting enough to have the kind of investment in that Gremlins wants us to have, empty vessels to react to the creatures. Once they make their appearance its rather amusing but I don't think it is really worth the wait to get to that point so unfortunately I can't give this a high rating. Shame, if I cared about the main character more I would have gotten this to an 8/10 easy.
Stephen C (ca) wrote: Its easy to see why John Lennon and George Harrison were such fans of this film its totally off the scale and out there story wise,but it must be said in a good way.Director Alejandro Jodorowsky plays El Topo (it means the mole in English) who starts out on a quest to avenge the death of his wife.So far so normal but this really is Luis Bunel meets Sergio Leone as El Topo faces off against various gunfighters in even more bizarre situations After gaining his revenge El Topo is betrayed by his woman and left for dead .The film then does another odd turn as El Topo returns from hibernation to become a monk like enetertainer in a corrupt and violent town which leads to a tragic final act.The film really is a Lynchian stream of images with plenty of violence along the way but also plenty of beauty .There really is nothing like it out there in film land and despite the shocks Jodorowsky has an artist and poets eye for telling a great story.Of course being under the influence of something may help you understand the movie ,but you dont have to be stoned to gain a great piece of film art.
John M (gb) wrote: I'm probably too steeped in Tennessee Williams to judge this on its merits, but absent the shock of the sex for 1958's audiences, there is not much here besides a very capable French New Wave rendering of a crisis for a bored housewife. Moreau is great, but there's not much sizzle here as she enters the classic plot-device for movie adulterers. The answer is so completely left-field that it must seem refreshing. Beautiful to look at, but you might not want to commit to it (not that there's any thing wrong with that, apparently)
