Cindi L (gb) wrote: It took me a little while to get in the mood of this movie, and I never totally got the hang of the dialogue, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Shot in an almost Dogme-like style, it felt almost like a documentary and was an interesting slice of life about the wholesale district in NYC, and the hustlers who work there.

Sam W (kr) wrote: For me it's a classic. I don't know if it was supposed to be a comedy / horror film, but I couldn't help but laugh throughout the entire movie.

Asif H (gb) wrote: Shahrukh as a bad guy is amazing.

Nate T (fr) wrote: Entertaining for what it is. Worth a look.

Michael C (ca) wrote: I cannot understand why this has a 43% tomatometer rating. I think this movie is hilarious. It's a spoof but at the same time has real characters that keep you into the plot. And George Hamilton gives a super funny performance.

Tasos L (jp) wrote: very original script with an ecological message in the end of the film!!!!

W W (ca) wrote: As far as experimental films go, a little more accessible and maybe slightly less personal than something like Robert Downey Sr.'s Greaser's Palace & Putney Swope.

Karsh D (es) wrote: Despite the jokes and jovial sing songs the clear anti war message shines brightest. Incredibly powerful and thought provoking throughout.

Tina S (mx) wrote: Rock Hudson is hot but weirdly paired with Jane Wyman. Loved the 50's glam though.

I was having a conversation the other day with a good friend of mine. My friend is fairly into films, though he is often busy with school and doesn't watch the amount of films he would like. And so he says to me, "I have to write an essay on a Japanese film for my Japanese language course, think you could recommend to me some good non-samurai themed Japanese films?", at which I realized that my experience with foreign language cinema, and more precisely Japanese cinema, isn't where I what i prefer. So i suggested one of the few non-samurai japanese flicks i had seen, "Ugetsu", and vowed to make a conscious effort to watch more foreign language cinema. And it's seems to have been a great decision as i finished watching one of Yasujiro Ozu's most renown works, Late Spring. The film has the same temperament as it's title suggests, the picture is warm, and has that calm but not lazy feeling one usually can find in Springtime. Though it's my first encounter with Mr. Ozu's work, it's clear that the man had a voice of his own. His screen compositions, the way he frames his characters in relation to their environment, is both unique and absolutely beautiful, and have the wonderful effect of placing the characters in an environment, instead of building an environment around the actors; and probably goes a long way in keeping this film from aging. But the picture has many more human qualities that make it such a pleasant watch. First starters the acting is exceptional. Though starting off they aren't immediately impressive, by the end of the picture these actors will have your emotions wrapped around their every nuance. Nut perhaps what makes this film the masterpiece it is, is the universality of the film's script. A melancholy examination of change. Perfectly scripted, directed with auteur style, and containing two wonderful performances from it's leads, Late Spring is a jovial achievement.

The movie does not give you a factual information but It's more like to introduce you his political and philosophical views.This movie should be interesting and be watched not only by melomans and its enjoyable during the entire runtime of 140 minutes.
