Michael B (nl) wrote: What a surprising innovation from a writer/director as accomplished as Wajda. I heard somewhere that most Mathematicians only have a window of into their early thirties for the potential and cultivation of spanking new theory and practice. Must not be the case with filmmakers and glad it wasn't. Every scene grabs and holds, even the soliloquies. The characters are fascinating and the performances have far more layers than I could understand in one sitting. In fact, the film went by in a flash. It just sucked you right in. Was also thrilled to see a Fordham U grad get the chance to work with a legend.

Steve W (au) wrote: Lenny and Amanda are a yuppie couple, and Amanda decides they should have a baby. When Lenny says no, Amanda makes him say yes and they adopt a boy who turns out to be a genius. Not being able to handle it, Lenny seeks out the boy's real mother, who turns out to be porn-star/prostitute Linda Ash (Mira Sorvino). Allen uses an actual Greek Chorus full of delightfully funny players to deconstruct the film, add some droll humour, and make it wholly original. The result is a touching and heart-warming comedy that hits all the right notes, especially that wonderful performance from Mira Sorvino. Mighty Aphrodite is a mighty film indeed.

Darren R (us) wrote: The most frustrating films are the ones that squander their potential. I didn't go into the film with high expectations, but the first thirty minutes of the film are surprisingly good. There's fine cinematography, a wonderful lead in Reiko Ike, some entertaining music, a fun premise and a setting rarely seen in film--the tail end of the Meiji period. Not to mention, it's fun seeing a film that so obviously inspired Quentin Tarantino. But in equal measure, every sex scene is non-consensual, the story is nowhere near as interesting as it should be, the script gets really muddy toward the end, the film mentions and then promptly drops Christina Lindberg's inner conflict, and every scene in English is cringe-worthy. (I can give Christina Lindberg a pass for not having great English, but her American counterpart sounds like he is speaking his lines phonetically.) I'd love to see a remake or another film heavily inspired by this without some of the nasty sexual violence. (I suppose you either find a bruised, half-naked woman in chains being whipped against her will arousing or disgusting.)
