(kr) wrote: I was bored and that rarely happens. Despite being set in Japan this is not recommended viewing. Compensatory factors are the films insight into Japanese culture and the exceptionally beautiful women (including the newsreader).
(kr) wrote: This is a Japanese movie, for too slow, but the story is so-so.
(kr) wrote: There's definitely something to it, but it has serious flaws, which is a shame. Potential missed because no one said "That's just wrong, don't", or perhaps someone wasn't listening.

(au) wrote: Good, but not great. Interesting story of survival, but it's not that original. There had been numerous WW2 POW / survival-through-unbearable-hardship movies before this, and this isn't that different from those. Plus, writer-director Bruce Beresford pulls his punches with regard to Japanese atrocities in WW2 - the reality was a lot worse than the movie makes out. Still, emotional and interesting nevertheless.Good performances all round.
(au) wrote: This movie screams "80's cliched college comedy", but it did have it's funny moments and my mildly touching at times. And you can't go wrong with James Earl Jones.
(fr) wrote: A very stunning and powerful film. The cinematography is fantastic and the story is perfectly bizarre in portraying the horrors of war.
(br) wrote: A good film from Ozu about arranged marriages, family traditions, and culture. Well done and interesting throughout.
(nl) wrote: Zany comedy. W.C. Fields' funniest.
(es) wrote: Being a big fan of both Chaplin and Keaton, this was my first experience with Harold Lloyd (thanks to The Criterion Collection's beautifully remastered Blu-ray version) and man was I impressed. The film was amazingly staged and was hilarious from start to finish as well as unnerving in the amazing stunts performed by Lloyd. I rarely laugh out loud during films but I was dying laughing throughout the film. The building climbing finale is both expertly staged and terrifying to watch as Lloyd teeters on the edge and dangles from multiple places on his long journey upwards. Watch a great comedy of the everyman Glasses character and one that most people then and now could relate to in some way or another. Highly recommended!
