Prince of Tears

Prince of Tears

A shameful period in Taiwanese history provides the backdrop for this emotional drama from writer and director Yonfan (aka Yang Fan). In 1949, in the wake of the 228 Incident (in which anti-government protesters launched a rebellion that was violently put down by authorities), Taiwan came under martial law, and through much of the 1950s brutal reprisals against suspected communists were commonplace. During the years of the "White Terror," thousand of supposed dissidents were killed, imprisoned or simply disappeared at the hands of the military police.

Two sisters whose family moves to Taiwan after their father fights in the civil war against the communists in mainland China, find their lives turned upside-down after their parents are thrown into jail and accused of being spies. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Eliabeth M (fr) wrote: Junn: Through plenty of crying, I've learnt to be content that I won't always be happy, secure in my loneliness, hopeful that I will be able to cope. Every year on Christmas Day I get very lonely. An incredible feeling of solitude. On this day, everything has stood still, even the trees have stopped rustling, but I'm still moving, I want to move, but I have nothing to move to, and nowhere to go. The scars beneath my skin suddenly surface and I get scared. Scared of being alone.Lilting cuenta la historia de dos personas totalmente distintas que se ven unidas por un ser querido. Kai muri y deja atrs a su madre Junn, quien es una seora mayor quien lleg de Cambodia a USA hace 20 aos atrs pero que nunca aprendi el idioma, y se encuentra en un ancianato porque empez a perder la memoria, y Richard, quien fue la pareja de Kai y el amor de su vida. Kai planeaba decirle a Junn la verdad acerca de su relacin con Richard antes de morir, pero no lo logr. Junn pasa sus das repitiendo en su cabeza la ltima vez que vio a su hijo, y no puede superar el dolor que siente. Richard siente que es su obligacin visitar a Junn y tratar de conocerla y consolarla. Es dolorosamente obvio que a Junn no le agrada Richard y se siente incomoda con su presencia. Como un gesto de cario Richard decide llevar una traductora de manera que puedan comunicarse libremente y tambin porque se entera de que Junn tiene una relacin con un hombre britnico llamado Alan y desea que se conozcan mejor. A la final la relacin entre ellos termina desintegrndose al darse cuenta que son muy diferentes, mientras que Richard logra simpatizar con Junn, y juntos encontran un consuelo y entender que tienen un vnculo que es irrompible llamado Kai. Lilting es una pelcula bastante discreta, a pesar de la gran carga emocional del tema. Me pareci que debi explotar un poco esa emocionalidad, porque no logr conectar lo suficiente para que me importaran los personajes. Normalmente la lentitud de las pelculas no tienen importancia mientras tengan un mensaje que contar, pero en este caso Tilting se hubiese beneficiado al ser ms corta. Trataron de alargar lo ms posible el tema, pero termin siendo forzado ya que simplemente no haba suficiente material. Tambin el guin no se sinti honesto en ciertas escenas, pero las actuaciones logran salvarlo. Ben Wishaw como Richard es conmovedor. Realmente se puede sentir su dolor y le da una fragilidad a su personaje que juega a su favor. Al igual que Pei-Pei Cheng como Junn quien se nota como su cara se va suavizando mientras la pelcula va avanzando. Ambos logran una gran combinacin a pesar de ser tan distintos. Andrew Leung como Kai es encantador. En cuanto a direccin esta pelcula tiene grandes imgenes, especialmente en cuanto a fotografa. Es una pelcula hermosa y que logra capturar el choque generacional de ambos. Esta pelcula tiene un gran potencial pero que no fue aprovechado en la historia. Al ser un tema tan poderoso hay que ser capaz de saber llevarlo, pero creo que hubo un miedo al no querer que resultara abrumador, pero tuvo el efecto contrario.

Muntasim T (kr) wrote: A truly modern and surprising offering from Bollywood, a workplace comedy around marketing! While it at times loses focus, but it seldom drags, and manifests a big heart all the way through. The spirit of marketing and business in general is conveyed very well, from its inexorable ruthlessness to how it can become more humane. Ranbir is outstanding in the lead role and Shimit Amin is a director I will be watching, who is not sticking to a comfortable genre. Bollywood is getting fresh blood, in both in front and behind the camera, and that bodes well for the viewers, who can expect to be rewarded with unconventional fare more frequently.

Mloy X (es) wrote: This film has a stelallar cast led by the always dashing Gary Cooper and stunning Barbara Stanwyck who can play a street-smart, tough, siren and yet still maintain an aura of innocence and vulnerability. The story is sweet and thoroughly entertaining, and even though it's set in the 40s, it's still holds up. I especially loved the dialogue, the way the people talkd back in the days, was so funny and cool, especially the slang of the era. Also, the banter between Stanwyck's Sugarpuss O'Shea and Prof. Bertram Potts (Cooper) was so entertaining, you can feel the chemistry long before their characters realize it, I can watch two whole hours of that alone!

Keenan S (ag) wrote: This is funny comedy/drama about jealousy and misunderstanding. The cast has great chemistry together which makes the film sizzle. This film is very underrated and deserves far more attention that it has received over the years. Check it out if you like romantic comedies.

Priestess H (gb) wrote: This was a horrible film. The story had giant plot holes, there was bad cinematography all over it, and the acting was very poor. I was unimpressed by the ideas that created this film.

Matthew H (us) wrote: The movie's message is heartfelt (no pun intended), and Denzel Washington gives a marginal performance, but there's something missing from John Q: Memorability.
