(ru) wrote: I agree with the majority of reviews on this one; while there were many very heartfelt and 'big' moments in the film highlighting the importance of the existence of art and its effect on humanity, it did feel very much like the story was lethargic and only serving those moments which left it pretty want at times for more to happen. apparently there is a good amount of editorial changes to the story from the real-life accounts of the 'save the art' mission for this team in WWII, but i do think this story is INSANELY interesting and even if this movie piques people's interests to do more research, I'd say that's still something important. i actually didn't even know the whole 'Hitler steals all the arts' thing happened and now I know the military was a butthole about recovering it all but thank god it did get saved (most of it at least). this'll be a wait for it on Netflix, but still worth watching when you can.
(au) wrote: To be as fair as possible to Walking On Sunshine, the idea of a sprightly musical based on a range of hits from the 80s sounds as fun it does terrible. Sure the plot of this breezy, extraordinarily well-behaved (hopeful) summer hit is the most contrived, predictable piece of fodder that does its utmost to spent 100 minutes without even attempting emotional engagement (or, as some may argue, attempting but failing drastically), but on the other hand, it's set in sunny Italy, features 'The Power Of Love' and passes the Bechdel test. Just.So here's the deal: there's nothing to actively hateful here. For all intents and purposes it's a perfectly innocent film, wearing its intentions on its sleeve from the very start...it's just a bit naff. While ever possible to do the camp musical in a way that lets you laugh and have fun with it (look at Grease, or even High School Musical), in this case the film tends to be more interested in just partying on itself rather than ever inviting the audience. At times it's a good romp, sure, but it really depends on what the song is and who's singing. Strangely enough, the plot isn't even particularly tailored around the lyrics; some of the songs fit into what's happening at the time, others just crop up when they feel like it. Beyond that, every one of them is treated like a final number, and they often look rather synthetic. Perhaps Les Mis set the mark too high for the realism of the musical, but even so, nothing but the film itself is at fault for lips not always moving in time with the words.The performances aren't bad - the singing quality inevitably varies between individuals - but generally speaking it's well performed. As a huge fan of musicals it's hard to be too down on such an inoffensive piece of fluff, but it's important to look past a few nice songs to really see what's going on underneath it all. Grease, Les Misrables, Jesus Christ Superstar, West Side Story; amongst others, they all have a commentary running through the centre, a story and meaning that actually transcends the music. Walking On Sunshine certainly does what it says on the tin, but it could do with looking down once in a while.

(es) wrote: Cate Shortland's "Somersault" is an odd coming-of-age film, not because it bears sickening quirkiness but because the coming-of-age itself is delivered in a strange reverse - the protagonist in question thinks they're mature enough to become an adult prematurely, but soon begins to discover that the real world is a hell of a lot crueler than the impish teenage universe. Unforgiving and realistic, it is a no-holds-barred film that takes away any seductive sentimentality left behind by "Good Will Hunting" and trades it with an attitude that comes to the conclusion that no turn is a right turn. This time around, our Will Hunting is not a brilliant young man but a thoughtful young woman. Heidi (Abbie Cornish), sixteen and aimless, lives a restless life drizzled in meaningless sex and little responsibility - to her, a job at a gas station is a career, not a gateway to higher education. Though considerate and intelligent, she is reckless, her dangerous spontaneity coming to a head one morning when she is caught kissing her mother's boyfriend (by her mother, no less). With their relationship shattered, she heads to an unremarkable town to start life anew, calling a crappy apartment home, calling quick shifts at a nearby minute mart a way to bring home the bacon. Heidi exploits her promiscuousness as a way to take a break from her harsh reality, but she is caught off-guard when she meets Joe (Sam Worthington), a brooding young farmer. She is instantaneously attracted, hopeful that they can begin a relationship. But Joe is having problems of his own, the most prominent being his sexuality. The two's blossoming courtship can only end in disaster, and they both know it - yet with their mirroring inner conflicts, their flaws have the potential to heal. "Somersault" famously swept the Australian Film Institute Awards back in 2004, winning every trophy it was nominated for, and with its refreshing honesty and nuance, such a fact passes by without much skepticism. It's one of the most memorable coming-of-age films ever made, as few are so accepting that not every person's growing up has to be a likable tale meant to tickle one's bouts of nostalgia. Maybe "Sixteen Candles" is a more diverting watch, but sometimes, a film as bullshitless as "Somersault" is needed, direct and emotionally wrenching enough to speak on a higher level than pure escapism. Cornish and Worthington make for an unconventional couple that authentically feels like kids lost in the real world rather than attractive twenty-somethings playing kids lost in the real world. Shortland passionately paints on a gritty canvas. But "Somersault"'s biggest asset is Cornish, who has since gone on to appear in major Hollywood films ("Limitless", "RoboCop"). Only 20 during its conception, she carries a rare magnetism usually found in European art-house staples (a la Isild Le Besco, Brigitte Bardot) - her participating in even the simplest of an activity is enthralling, her face a map of expression impossible to decipher. Heidi is a girl without an ounce of control in her life; Cornish makes the unpredictability thrilling. It's a gift that "Somersault" doesn't have a problem turning the ordinary into something extraordinary either.
