(us) wrote: A plot that seems as if it was written sloppily on a napkin in a drunken stupor is quirky and very unique, but the talented leads cannot carry this strange 95 minute experience out of obscurity.
(es) wrote: teve Zahn is mildly entertaining. Seems there was use of too many clips that shouldn't have made the final cut. Cast interactions were quite weak. The screenplay lacked any exciting twists and wasn't efficient in setting up the plot. The only thing keeping viewers watching are the quick laughs every ten minutes or so. Overall the film was very jumpy and unrealistic.

(fr) wrote: My third favorite Tom Hanks movie, behind Apollo 13 and Forrest Gump. It's strange to see a movie with so little dialogue, and almost no music, and yet still be this good. Some of Tom Hanks' best acting for sure. It's pretty impressive if you can get an audience to care so much about a volleyball, as if it was a real person, but that's something only Tom Hanks could do. Some of the effects are dated by today's standards, but they were done with good lighting/weather effects and cinematography, that the problems with them are hard to spot, so that's only a minor issue with the movie. And perhaps it was the transfer on the Blu-ray, but it seemed like the film quality didn't hold up to current HD standards very well either, whereas other movies from around the same time look fine. There were also a few areas where it seemed like the sound mixing could have been better. Other than those things, which are honestly minor complaints, the film feels mostly perfect to me. Personal Grade: S+Technical Score: 94%

(mx) wrote: Here we have another picture by director Max Ophuls, which drips with style while possessing a dark undercurrent. This time around Ophuls uses an unseen narrator for most of the movie to string together three short stories by Guy de Maupassant about love and relationships. The bookend stories are masterful portrayals of relational emptiness. It's the middle story that slows down a bit, but it's a biting commentary about what keeps a society alive and moving forward.

I see why Jonah Hill tried to mimic this with no success at all...the most pretty rare item in this movie -and quite essential to the plot- was a playboy magazine....are those things still around?...i don't know...
