(us) wrote: I loved this swedish film for the strength of the woman, her yearning for self-expression, her ability to have artistic vision in an era where there was no encouragement,the delicate balance of the relationships and limitation of choices-given the hard realities of money and social constraints. You will find it moving.
(jp) wrote: Obviously its a badge of honour to get a bad rating from the critics when 85% of the audience liked this. It's passionate. It's real. I loved the movie. People get bothered by the faith aspect, but there's no reason to in this case. It's inspiring here. I showed it to a group of pre-teens and they came away cheering.

(de) wrote: Considered by many critics as the film that birthed the famous New Wave of Cinema regardless of that its an entertaining film dripping of style & unique cinematic invention. The story of a petty criminal who murders a police officer in a moment of rage & finds himself on the run. Inspired by Bogart's Hard-Edge Character he tries to woo a naive Young American Woman.Filled with new camera techniques & clever flowing natural dialogue this was so far away from the Hollywood Formula. A breakthrough film of Jean Luc-Godard & fantastic French Film.
(jp) wrote: This films stands with Rashomon, Tokyo Story, and Seven Samurai as one of the greatest Japanese films ever made. All made within a few years of each other, this 'Golden Age' of Japanese cinema produced countless utter masterpieces, and Ugetsu is no exception. A story of two couples in a time of medieval civil war, a lake journey serves as the turning point in the film, turning it from a simple morality tale into a magnificent parralel of the supernatural and human cowardice. I won't say anything else, although it did remind me of Sunrise: a story of a man failing his wife, with a lake voyage as a turning point. The film is, truly, just incredible.
(es) wrote: For all the good reviews, exceptional actors (Philip Seymour-Hoffman's final movie), I was desperate to see if this movie was as great as everybody seemed to think. I'm still waiting for the movie to get going now. I'm sure many critics will argue that the writing was phenominal, acting was good, and it was a 'visually-pleasing' movie, but really the one key ingredient this movie lacked was entertainment. I've seen recent Oscar winning movies (Spotlight and Argo for example) and both of them also bring that level of entertainment to the table too. A Most Wanted Man was trying to be clever; but at the loss actual enjoyment to the viewer.Verdict: C-
