Scott R (us) wrote: There was something simple about this movie that bothered me, perhaps it was the "unstrung" people that this family was surrounded with? Perhaps it was the way the parents raised their children in an unusual way where for that time period it seemed odd that they did not discipline their children and seemed to give them huge freedoms? I think that was what really got me, but despite this I still enjoyed watching the eccentricities of the uncles and their impact on Franz and how he accepted them as a way for him to cope with loss.

This small group of small aliens come to earth to attend the greatest war the Universe has never seen, and they realize there never was a war. Hilarious, funny, and funny.

He also made The Barbarian Invasions a film which I enjoyed very much It won best foreign film Oscar 2004. Plot A group of actors putting on an interpretive Passion Play in Montreal begin to experience a meshing of their characters & their private lives as the production takes form against the growing opposition of the Catholic church. (Lothaire Bluteau), the actor who plays Christ, discovers that his own life is taking on some of the aspects of Christ's. By the end of the film we have arrived at a crucifixion scene that actually plays as drama & not simply as something that has been forced into the script. It suggests that most establishments, & especially the church, would be rocked to their foundations by the practical application of the maxims of Christ. The film gives us simple, powerful messages of artistic freedom, personal redemption, and perseverance during a personal quest & how heartbreaking the world, & reality, can be. The film manages to make deft, original swipes at a plethora of modern ??evils?? media hype, advertising, hospital bureaucracy, & of course the hypocrisy of the religious establishment. Cinematically the film is visually elegant & an uncluttered sort of movie. In a sense the film is a movie about the theater, not about religion. But in the end their challenging production becomes the toast of the city, the Roman Catholic Church strongly objects to its Biblical interpretation & forcefully stops the performances. The film is clever, funny and tragic. Its apparent complexity is a conjuring trick. "Life is hard to bear," Daniel announces, finally. Truth, as Jesus discovered, kills. Only jokers and journeymen survive. And believers. At least this film does not become overly heavy-handed onscreen. This film was nominated for the 1989 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film but did not win. 4 stars

Christophe M (ag) wrote: Remake du clbre One Armed Swordsman incarn par Wang Yu et aussi David Chiang raliss par Chang Cheh, cette version de Tsui Hark reprend les grandes lignes du premier volet avec Yu (le fils adoptif du matre se fait couper le bras, le sabre dcoup de son pre, le livre o il apprend sa nouvelle technique) mais aussi un p'tit lment de la version avec Chiang (aprs son bras coup, le hros se cache et officie comme serveur dans un resto). Mais Hark y ajoute une certaine atmosphre qui rend ce film plus sombre avec quasiment aucun second degr (ce qui tait le cas, volontaire ou pas, des deux premiers films) et contrairement aux originaux, Hark retire tout machisme ou homosexualit latente. En revanche, l'intrigue est plus confuse et on se retrouve avec tout un tas de personnages plus ou moins utile ainsi que des combats trs (parfois trop) tournoyant. Chiu Man Cheuk colle son perso mais je prfre malgr tout le Fang Gang de Wang Yu (pour moi, il est aussi devant David Chiang). Nanmoins, il ne s'agit pas d'un remake qui tourne vide et Hark apporte sa pierre l'difice d'une saga rfrence que j'aime beaucoup !!!
