(nl) wrote: Softness, quiescence, mellow and a bit tense, this movie builds towards a breaking point--A film about dealing with loss, childhood and motherhood...!!
(nl) wrote: The only thing I liked about this was its originality. I thought the acting was terrible. The Banshee was sort of creepy.
(gb) wrote: Self-indulgent, narcissistic steaming pile of dung. RZA fancies himself an actor and director. He is neither. This is a case of someone with more money than talent believing that this money qualifies him to direct and start in a movie.
(br) wrote: Very long, sometimes twisty in plot

(fr) wrote: A compelling story, and interesting movie which presents the problems of Brazil's lower class in a tragic light. It was a bit slow and unsatisfying at times, with insufficient attention paid to some of the characters (such as Alessandro). This isn't really a documentary, as it has actors and a script, but it is a drama based on real-life events. Worth a watch!

(ca) wrote: One of Badhams best films, that didn't do well at the box office and tus, its forgotten and ignored. Low budget film, with an off form Cassavetes but a superb performance by Dreyfuss, much more challenging than whan previous roles that he was rewarded for, well thats Hollywood. Catch it if you can.

(fr) wrote: It's so simple, but so powerful. This film has an odd effect that no film has had before. Max Ophuls camerawork has to be some of the most precise and masterful ever. Emotions carry deeply throughout, and it isn't boring for one second. Perhaps the most perfectly done film I've yet to see, and I've seen many. It portrays each scene perfectly within it's boundaries, and it's sheer brilliance wins us over, constantly. One of the top 5 greatest films ever made, and not just in my personal perspective.
(gb) wrote: While I still enjoyed this movie, I couldn't help but notice the pacing was a bit messy. The most improved actor in this movie is by far Tom Felton. He really upped the game for the character of Draco Malfoy. Everyone else is pretty much up to par as well. The movie as a whole just seemed to be missing something and the ending didn't quite pack the emotional punch that I was hoping for. Still a solid entry in the series though.
