Tabataba tells the story of a small Malagasy village during the independence uprising which took place in 1947 in the south of the country. For several months, part of the Malagasy population revolted against the French colonial army in a bloody struggle. The repression in villages that followed was terrible, leading to fires, arrests and torture. Women, children and the elderly were the indirect victims of the conflict and suffered particularly from famine and illness. One leader of the MDRM Malagasy Party, which campaigns for the independence of the country, arrives in a village. Solo (François Botozandry), the main character, is still too young to fight but he sees his brother and most of the men in his clan join up. His grandmother, Bakanga (Soavelo), knows what will happen, but Solo still hopes his elder brother will return a hero. After months of rumours, he sees instead the French army arrive to crush the rebellion.

Though not necessarily stellar on its own filmmaking merits, it is awe-inspiring to see the SNL writers and cast do everything that they do on a super-tight timeline. What's more is that they are all funnier off set than they are on. Even as a casual fan of SNL, I walked away from SATURDAY NIGHT with a great appreciation for everybody that works on it.

Bob V (kr) wrote: Bette Davis plays a young spoiled woman from a wealthy family who seduces and elopes with her 'good' sister's husband. The sister, Olivia De Havilland, eventually finds new happiness with Davis' jilted fianc (C)e, but her wayward sibling reappears to wreak fresh havoc.Davis plays the bitch to fever point, at times she looks maniacal. At the time of filming her husband became desperately ill and subsequent events led to a decline in her health as well, one which plagued not only this film, but several of her next ones as well. Nonetheless the manic energy of her portrayal suits her character most of the time, even though it gets unnerving in certain scenes.Able support of De Havilland as yet another good girl. I wonder if she never just thought "ah shit, another film where I get to look doe-eyed and simpering while the other chick gets to do shots and wink at sailors"... But that aside, Olivia always played the good girl to a T, it must be said and she brings warmth and depth to a character that otherwise could be summed up in one sentence, not an easy feat.
Cameron H (es) wrote: I like to use the critical consensus for Rotten Tomatoes as a starting point for many of my reviews. I had not seen Gattaca in several years, and I vaguely remembered the premise. When I saw the consensus claim that the movie, "poses important interesting ethical questions about the nature of science," I was excited. As someone who has recently considered working around the bends of gene therapy (as a statistician, but still, I'll be important someday), I was curious what those questions were. Much to my disappointment, Gattaca is not what I thought it would be. I wanted a movie that not only tackled the topic of gene therapy, but truly delved into the complexities of the situation. I can sense that Gattaca wanted to do that, but somewhere, it was stopped. For example, in this utopia -- truly, this did not have the vibe of a world in greater chaos than now, which was a cinematic relief -- main character Vincent (Ethan Hawke) is what is commonly known as a "godchild," meaning he was conceived naturally instead of through genetic engineering. An old expression for such godchildren is that they are generally happier than those conceived through genetic engineering. That's an interesting idea, and the film perpetuates that through the hierarchal system established in business. No matter how high in power the "valid" people are, there is always that desire for more power. So, what I don't understand is the correlation between ambition and happiness. If those who were engineered supposedly have the greatest potential in their gene pool, how is it that so many of them remain unhappy? If it relates to them not having everything that they want, then wouldn't that apply to everyone in the system, no matter how one was conceived? Look, I understand that a movie is not supposed to answer every single question it poses, but that is just one example of various grievances I have with what Gattaca offhandedly mentions.Oddly enough, Gattaca feels stuck between too much simplicity and too much complexity. It could have simply been a gene therapy-themed movie that ultimately teaches the audience never to give up on realizing one's ambitions, no matter what society might say otherwise. In that sense, Gattaca succeeds, with a forgivable exception for the ending to the story of the crippled Jerome (Jude Law). I find it harder to forgive the contrived romance between Vincent and Irene (Uma Thurman), but those moments were short enough for the entire data sample to be notable in other respects. Performances were good, if not outstanding. The set design perfectly fits the dysfunctional utopia that is described. And one scene, in Jude Law's apartment during the climax of a murder investigation, was thrilling in good ol' Hollywood fashion. Ultimately, however, my greatest concern were those questions. Personally, I don't see why one would ask, "Should I conceive my child through natural or artificial means?," after seeing this movie. Given how discriminatory the system is, the only scientific reason why someone should conceive naturally is related to happiness. And no further information was provided on that front. Gattaca spends a solid amount of time in telling a straightforward Hollywood drama/thriller, under the guise of intellectual science-fiction. Don't be fooled. It's a false print.P.S. *SPOILER, AVOID ME, SPOILER* This one is personal: What a waste of an ending. How could you have Vincent say, "I never saved anything for the swim back," and NOT have him die of heart failure during his trip into space? He was past his due date, it would have shocked everyone else on board, and that line would have come full circle. SUCH a waste.
