Mournful Unconcern

Mournful Unconcern

The action in this lavishly produced film takes place at an oddly ark-shaped mansion during World War I, and in spirit (although not in story) it reflects the play which inspired it, the ferociously antiwar Heartbreak House by George Bernard Shaw. A large group of family and friends have gathered at this country house to dance, drink, and converse. Their conversation, in particular, is adorned with erudite literary references and quotations. Despite their apparent refinement, their preoccupations are simple: sex and violence. Disquieting images break the tranquility of the vacationers' inappropriate idyll: some of these include documentary footage of starving African children, images (both real and re-enacted) of George Bernard Shaw going about his daily life, and a corpse coming to life on an autopsy table, only to cheapen that miracle by scolding a group of women. The music used in the film ironically points to its disturbing message and is uniformly anachronistic.

J K (de) wrote: A good little British film, capturing the essence of the era with a ghostly tale to tell. The fact that it's based in a council house rather than an archetypal old creaky house may bring this closer to home and add something to unsettle the viewer. Worth a watch.

Jamie C (kr) wrote: Even though I'm giving it the same rating as Pierce Brosnans first Bond effort it's not as good thanks to the absolutely stupid plot, Starting WW3 just to get better ratings on your TV show is just beyond silly for a plot especially a Bond Film, The action was pretty fun but yet again the silly one liners ruined them, Some good stunts and a nice bike chase too but apart from that there's nothing new or memorable, If you're looking for good action you will be happy if you want a solid well acted Bond film with a good story you will leave very dissapointed.

Robert B (ca) wrote: H (Jong-hyuk Lee, 2002)Se7en Meets Silence of the Lambs! crows the cover art, obviously written for an American audience, that adorns this movie at Netflix. I read a review on IMDB from a person who mentions that overseas box art compares the film to Tellmisseomding. All of these comparisons have teeth, but as this movie progressed, I found myself thinking more and more of Kyua, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's immensely entertaining supernatural take on ...Lambs. H is not as good a movie as any of the above, but its problems are relatively minor and if you're looking for a fun locked-room murder mystery, this will fill the bill nicely.Shin-hyun (Marathon's Seung-woo Cho), a serial killer, turns himself in and is locked up. Everything seems great...until a year later, when two recent crimes are uncovered that bear the marks of being Shin-hyun's work. The only problem is that he was in prison when they occurred. So the two detectives who were originally assigned to the case, Mi-yun Kim (Tellmisseomding's Jung-ah Yum) and Tae-hyun Kang (Perhaps Love's Jin-hee Ji in her first screen appearance), hit the bricks to see if they can figure out whether they've got a copycat on their hands, or whether Shin-hyun is masterminding what could be an entire network of serial killers from behind bars. Or whether the answer is something even weirder...It's quite a slick little film that wears its influences on its sleeve maybe a little too much; it tries to make up for this by coming up with a bang-up plot twist, and for what it's worth, they did a good job at it. The Big Reveal(TM) here is an interesting take on a couple of stock plot twists, but I don't think I've ever seen them combined in quite this way before (though I can identify three or four things that might have been direct influences). That's ultimately not enough to balance the weight of the movie's derivative nature, but as long as you're willing to put that to the side, it's a well-acted, well-presented little movie, and you won't feel you've wasted two hours after watching it. ***

Matt M (kr) wrote: A famous theatre actress has a breakdown after the car she was in hits a fan that was trying to chase after her. Once again, Cassavetes explores characters on the verge of sanity, and he does it by teaming up with his muse and partner in life Rowlands after the success of A Woman Under the Influence. The film has an all new original impact, as the examination of the breakdown comes from a combination of her uncertainties of ageing, loss of a true identity and the paradox of the loneliness of a woman who seems to be surrounded by people. The performances, as usual in Cassavetes films, are tremendous, and this is another of his hard hitting gems, with a theatrical setting to it that strengthens the poetic appeal.

Chris M (gb) wrote: Gene Kelly stars in this timeless musical masterpiece as a silent film star working on his first talking picture with his romantic co-star (Jean Hagen), his best friend (Donald O'Connor), and a promising new actress (Debbie Reynolds). Many complications arise during the production, among them are his co-star's obnoxious voice and the microphones capturing the wrong sounds. Will their first "talkie" be a success or a disaster? This picture is a pure delight from start to finish with wonderful musical numbers including the title tune, "Good Morning", and "Make 'Em Laugh". Singin' in the Rain also has an equally delightful script by Betty Comden and Adolph Green that is hilarious yet affectionate at capturing Hollywood's rough transition into talking pictures.

Camille L (es) wrote: "He's just not that into you" fait partie de ces films romantiques choraux qui suivent une dizaine de personnages qui, comme par hasard, se croisent constamment dans leurs choix amoureux. Force est de constater que le film de Ken Kwapis parvient lgitimer cela de manire plutt habile, sans avoir recours une grosse scne de groupe. De plus, il a de la chance de possder un casting de superbes acteurs : Scarlett Johansson, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Connelly, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Aniston et Drew Barrymore sont tous de grands acteurs et le film s'en sert habilement. Plus souvent raliste que guimauve, He's just not that into you ne semble jamais long, malgr ses deux heures, grce un rythme trs efficace et des storylines qui sonnent vraies. Une russite.
