The Face on the Barroom Floor

The Face on the Barroom Floor

A painter turned tramp (Chaplin), devastated by losing the woman he was courting as a wealthy man, finds himself drunk and getting drunker by the minute with some sailors at a bar until he's literally falling down. He keeps futilely trying to draw the woman's picture on the floor with a piece of chalk until he finally passes out cold (or perhaps dies, as in the poem) at the end of the film.

The Face on the Barroom Floor torrent reviews

Devin M (fr) wrote: Dark and pensive story of a recovering drug-addict reflecting on his life and attempting to put it back together. The first half of the movie or so is quite gripping and powerful. It introduces the fascinating main character of Anders and explores some deep and thought-provoking themes early on that really pulled me in. I was genuinely interested in how a movie that began so intriguingly and candidly would play out. However, the second half of the movie kind of lost me. Its once thoughtful mood slowly faded and the story just kind of trailed off. Not much interesting happened in this second half--it just kind of stammers on until the end, which doesn't offer much relief. Overall, I think I understood the themes that the movies was trying to convey and the way they wanted to go about it, and I think they executed that plan well; but I just didn't find it all that compelling of a complete story in the end. I really wished the feeling and depth of the first half carried throughout the rest of the movie, as I felt that this was the best part of the whole movie. But I felt that it just didn't completely follow through with its compelling introduction.

Deepika G (gb) wrote: I watched this without any expectation but it turned out to be a good movie...Best thing about the movie is Kareena's(Pooja) role. Kareena is looking hot and I loved action scene she has done. Akshay Kumar(Bachchan Pandey) has also done good job in the movie. Story is good and I love music of the film. All the songs are excellent with great picturization. What I didn't like about the movie was special effects. And also Bhaiyaji's (Anil Kapoor) scenes were a little boring in the beginning.

Harpreet S (de) wrote: I remember reading somewhere, where it said something similar to: That Jean-Luc Godard's films have more ideas in one frame than what most have in a single film. Godard's "Notre Musique" deserves that recognition. I watched this film last night, then read about it, and then watched it again. The film has three segments that are titled "Realm 1: Hell", "Realm 2: Purgatory", and "Realm 3: Paradise". From what I read, the structure is inspired by Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, which I almost know nothing about. Since, I am unable to interpret in depth; I would like to mention one sequence where in a classroom of children, a translator is telling about the Mostar Bridge to the main character. Right after that, there is a simple, yet extraordinary panning shot of the bridge itself, showing exactly what the translator was saying without any words! In the Purgatory segment, there is a conference sequence in which Godard himself gives a lecture on text and image. I would like to share one quote from it. "In 1938...Heisenberg and Bohr were walking through Denmark's countryside. They pass by the castle of Elsinore. The German savant says, 'That castle has nothing extraordinary about it.' The Danish physic replies, 'Yes, but...if you say, Hamlet's castle, then it becomes extraordinary.'" This film may seem impenetrable, but I believe there is a door open that you can pass through. Godard from an interview with Michael Witt, talking about "Notre Musique": Michael Witt: When you are asked during the lecture whether lightweight digital cameras are going to save cinema you don't respond.Jean-Luc Godard: I wanted to keep the scene short. But in any case I know nothing about it. What's bad is that students think that because they've got a little camera, they can film something. The manufacturers, even the critics, say: 'It's great! Everyone can make cinema!' No, not everyone can make cinema. Everyone can think they're making cinema, or say, 'I make cinema.' But if you give someone a pencil it doesn't mean they're going to draw like Raphael or Rembrandt. If I'd said all that, however, it would have been too long for the scene.Lastly, I just want to say that you have to see the Paradise segment to believe it! Godard's paradise really shook me, I won't mention any details. This is really one of Godard's greatest films, I really loved it, and yes it does have a story even if people may not think it does. I did understand this film somewhat; I know I did not really explain it well, because I don't have the words. But this is one film I think everyone should watch. Definitely would like to hear people's insight!

Stefanos T (kr) wrote: Intriguing noir and a decent story. Cinematography was done in great style but that's about it really. The plot is promising in the beginning but the ending is quite disappointing. It could have ended in a much more powerful note.

Cody W (jp) wrote: Spring in a Small town feels like a really good book. The plot is reminiscent of that of a novel more so than that of a movie, the wife's narration gives novel-like insights, the the film is shot in a way that reminds me of how I imagine books as I read. The characters here are well-drawn and the story is simple, but captivating.

David L (ag) wrote: Heavy Traffic is another one of those nasty 1970s films - it a pointless and stupid look at absolutely nothing with awful characters, vulgar to the point of pornographic approach, pointless live-action sequences and lack of any characterization, substance or purpose whatsoever making Bakshi probably the most overrated animation director of all time.
