(it) wrote: Sean Patrick Flanetys chins finally came down after his botched surgery or whatever he did to them. This is suppose to be a horror/thriller where a woman seeks justice through the memory of a dead girl. Don't we have enough tv-shows about that... yes we do. So no need for the movies.
(br) wrote: Same plot as Our Family Wedding, but more emotionally involved and entertaining to watch. In addition, Paula Patton is one of my favorite actresses

(ag) wrote: I can't believe I'm posting this. But I like the younger kid in it now as an actor - not the blond guy, the one who plays his little brother.This movie is about a)economics and b)limits/boundaries. Kind of fascinating, really. It's all set in this old growth, new construction suburb that that transports you into thin air. Not in a necessarily good way, just as a matter of fact facet of style. It opens with a bittersweet classical violin score which is a theme throughout. I like to watch it when I'm feeling like I need a break. I don't think I'm recommending it because it is really not probably anyone's cup of tea.

(ag) wrote: There are, in no doubt, hundreds of burgeoning directors who could have made 1975's "The Story of Adle H." with a little more flair than French auteur Franois Truffaut (who goes for clinically aloof rather than supply lush), but there is not, in no doubt, an actress besides the then twenty years old Isabelle Adjani who could have embodied the title role so without flaw. When Truffaut goes for nonchalant naturalism, Adjani goes for dangerously passionate, and the symbiotically intoxicating artistic partnership thus makes for thoroughly arresting cinema. Biographical pictures are not so usually virtuoso in delivery - conventionality over personal style is to be anticipated - but "The Story of Adle H." is haunting to the point of being nightmarish. Detached from reality and vehement in its depiction of erotic obsession, it keeps us away from empathy and instead indulges our cinematic tendency to voyeuristically gaze. How could one look away, anyhow, from the plight of our tragic heroine, Adle Hugo? The daughter of revolutionary French writer Victor Hugo ("Les Misrables"), Adle, in her youth, was briefly romanced by the British Lieutenant Albert Pinson (brought to life in the film by Bruce Robinson), who ultimately proposed marriage but, like many lusty soldiers of the time, didn't really mean the proposition and wants to move on. But the fleetingly amorous relationship had a destructive impact on Adle's mind, which, with the aid of a now better understanding of psychology, is understood to have been affected by both schizophrenia and erotomania. The film follows her for a year (1863-64) as her mental state deteriorates, introducing her as a fragile beauty undermined by her subtle madness and leaving her after she's lost her sanity completely. The decay found in the middle is marvelously portrayed by Adjani, who was nominated for an Oscar for her work. Following her long bout of derangement was Adle eventually placed in an insane asylum, where she quietly lived for forty years until her death in 1915 at the age of eight-five. But that section of her life is wisely summarized within the credits - most compelling about Adle Hugo's existence, I think, were those seminal years that saw her almost compulsively living in her delusions, traveling anywhere Pinson landed and putting on various faades in besetting attempts to win her would-be lover over. The young woman was kept loose for far too long - a person in her state of mind is more than just a little bit of a danger to themselves - but watching her do anything (at one point, she even visits a hypnotist) to wrangle Pinson back into her life is as sad as it is heartbreakingly humorous. Obviously, Adle never had a moment in her long life not hindered by her dementia, but viewing her psychological crumbling is tragically tantalizing. Sometimes Truffaut's writing and direction flirts with ubiquity, but Adjani, so impassioned, is enthralling. Behind Adle's porcelain allure and waif-like body language hides a torrent of aberration, and Adjani, among the most gifted actresses of her generation, finds the nuances within Adle's mental decomposition with terrifyingly realistic fury. The role catapulted Adjani to stardom, and, forty-one years after its release, rests as one of the most defining moments of her lauded career. Beholding the performance in all its stormy glory, her witchery as an actress has perhaps gotten better with age. And "The Story of Adele H." has ripened with time, too: an iconic moment in French cinema of the 1970s and a high point in Truffaut's thrill seeking filmography, it's a biographical picture that overcomes its limitations as a simple retelling. Adle Hugo might have been destroyed by her mind, but her collapse makes for exceptional fascination for the silver screen.
