(br) wrote: So fake and dangerous. Girls are plenty cute though but we mostly see guys. Cars are a bit silly. The blue light under? It did not look like blue fire. I had something to do and stopped watching in the middle of it. Not sure if I will watch the end for the races.
(de) wrote: A remake of Hideo Nakata's unique haunted house variation during the US J-Horror and Asian Horror remake craze, though this film is one of the better remakes.Jennifer Connelly plays a recently divorced mother with her young daughter moving into a low rent apartment. Things begin to get strange when mysterious drips and wet spots start to appear in the ceiling. To reveal more would spoil the story, but I will say that Connelly, who I really thing is one of the best actresses of her generation, gives such a sincere performance as a mother trying to protect her daughter, that to label this film merely a haunted house story is a huge disservice. Elegantly directed by Walter Salles (Motorcycle Diaries), smartly written by Rafael Yglesias (Fearless) and a hauntingly beautiful score composed by Angela Badalamenti (Blue Velvet) all add up to a classy production. This may not be a horror fan's horror film, but it's a thinking person's horror film, which I think is a fairly narrow band of the general public. And it's worth noting John C. Reilly's performance as a smiling but oily (verging on evil) apartment leasing manager. It's a small but quite memorable part of the film.

Desgarrador drama social en la Espaa de los 60, la historia de unos miserables campesinos en manos de los caciques. Se dan la mano la opresin, la humillacin, y toda una leccin de realismo de Delibes captado por Camus. A veces resulta grotesca. No es una pelcula social que "destile" un mal llamado "compromiso poltico". Es una pelcula costumbrista que relata una vida que no podra ser de otra manera. Magnificas interpretaciones de todo el cuadro de actores pero me quedo con dos, Juan Diego en el papel del seorito, Terele Pvez en el papel de Recula y Alfredo Landa..........Mario Camus's masterpiece. His best film is adapted from a play by Miguel Delibes. Previously he had adapted to the nobel Cela with "La Colmena". Wrenching social drama in Spain from the 60's, the story of a miserable farmers in the hands of caciques. They shake hands oppression, humiliation, and a lesson in realism Delibes captured by Camus. Sometimes it is grotesque. There isn't a social film "distilling" a so-called "political commitment". It's a film that tells a life manners could not be otherwise. Magnificent performances of the entire table of players but I'll take three, Juan Diego on the role of "seorito", Terele Pvez in the role of "Recula" and Alfredo Landa

Well-drawn characters and strong performances, though it is slow at times and a handful of scenes drag on too long.

(fr) wrote: They'd done Godzilla. They'd brought us color monster madness with Rodan. Now Toho continue to improve their Kaiju films with Mothra. Once again Mothra is the result of nuclear radiation, but those themes are just around to explain her size. The main plot is Mothra's rescue attempt of two miniature women taken from her island. Strange? Certainly, but it's nice to see the monster with a clear agenda and some actual motivation. The models and effects are the best so far. Remote controlled vehicles, green screen, monster puppets, are all thrown in to give us some truly exhilarating city smash ups. Even when "people" are obviously dolls, it's OK. Films don't have to be a replacement for the imagination. I was never dragged out of the film's universe, and the scenes of the dam bursting had me appreciating film making more than any CGI filled computer game-a-like. The use of a fictionalized nation allows you to easily ignore any overbearing political agendas. It isn't as dark as the previous efforts. But when your monster is a big moth, you don't get as much horror. Luckily, it also manages to create a more atmospheric and artistic approach. Mothra's initial hatching is juxtaposed with a beautiful and rather trippy song. A tale of, once again, man's mistakes. Only this time, it's the exploitation of these mistakes that brings destruction.
