Director Alan Berliner takes on his reclusive father as the reluctant subject of this affecting and graceful study of family history and memory. Ultimately this complex portrait is a meeting of the minds -- where the past meets the present, where generations collide and where the boundaries of family life are stretched, torn and surprisingly, at times, also healed. Berliner has transformed a story of a troubled man who has sealed himself off from life's pain into a work of universal resonance.
This documentary is the companion piece to New York filmmaker Alan Berliner's 1991 film Intimate Stranger which followed the fascinating life of his grandfather, a seemingly average man with an extraordinary life. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

But when a American MMA fighter comes to Romania with his family, his daughter then gets kidnapped and the US Embassy refers them to him, only to be scarred by the previous incident who eventually comes back. As forementioned, this is a decent JCVD flick even though they're some plot holes, I as a viewer want the good guys to win. 3 out of 4

(kr) wrote: 60/100. The convincing and good performances from everyone give this film the feeling it was meant to feel, being trapped in small time life and dreaming to get out. Well cast, appropriately simple cinematography, good music. It's not a great film, but it was good enough to hold my interest throughout. Well done.

I think if they had taken a 'Pirates 1' approach instead of a 'Pirates 3' approach (a shorter, more compact story - it's a full 40 minutes too long), this movie would have been more successful. A Spring launch would have helped tremendously. I have no idea why it had to cost $240 M, they could have made this movie for $100M. The competition killed this at least as much as the bad word-of-mouth. I have seen many worse movies, but this was a let down as well. Rumor has it that Disney green-lit a sequel before it was even released, and my bet is they're currently re-branding Thunder Mountain in Disneyland to match. Talk about putting the ore-cart before the spirit-horse. Grade C.

(au) wrote: Okay, guys, you know the drill. But just a reminder... King Claudius(Patrick Stewart) tells his new stepson, Prince Hamlet(David Tennant), to lighten up because death comes to all, including his father, so enjoy life. This might seem a little harsh but Claudius has bigger things on his mind like Fortinbras rattling sabres in nearby Norway. To be honest, Hamlet is definitely taken aback at his mother Gertrude(Penny Downie) remarrying only a month after her husband's death. Well, he's not the only one concerned because Hamlet's friend Horatio(Peter De Jersey) summmons him to have a quick word with his father's ghost(Patrick Stewart) who says there was nothing at all natural in his death. This is a compelling version of "Hamlet" set in the modern day, almost totally indoors in a stately palace. So, while cameras are commonplace along with the occasional handgun, there is also a sense of decay in the royal household. Adding to the sense of disconnect is David Tennant's performance as perhaps the loosest Hamlet I have seen, with the character's brattiness contrasting well with such a disapproving father. Casting Patrick Stewart in the double role is a nice touch, which he handles with distinction.

(au) wrote: This could have been a much better movie considering Alejandro Amenbar was at the helm and Rachel Weisz gives a solid performance, but ultimately there's something in it that fails to completely grasp most audiences. I find no fault in its slightly hysterical portrayal of Christianity of the time, nor do I find fault in it trying to find a balance between romantic ideals and reality. I cannot put to words adequately what this movie is missing, but it's enough to make it worthwhile to watch only once or twice, especially as a date night movie.

Los personajes se sienten tan reales en su amor, su desesperacin, su sufrimiento, su perdida y, lo peor, te acostumbras de un modo a sus muertes. Indispensable para hablar de Ruffalo, Bomer y Parson.
