In a mythical Japan, Ko-Ko, a cheap tailor, has been appointed Lord High Executioner and must find someone to execute before the arrival of the ruling Mikado. He lights upon Nanki-Poo, a strolling minstrel who loves the beautiful Yum-Yum. But Yum-Yum is also loved by Ko-Ko, and Nanki-Poo, seeing no hope for his love, considers suicide. Ko-Ko offers to solve both their problems by executing Nanki-Poo, and an agreement is reached whereby Ko-Ko will allow Nanki-Poo to marry Yum-Yum for one month, at the end of which Nanki-Poo will be executed, in time for the arrival of the Mikado. But what Ko-Ko doesn't know is that Nanki-Poo is the son of the Mikado and has run away to avoid a betrothal to an old harridan named Katisha. The arrival of the Mikado brings all the threads of the tale together. This is the Stratford Festival of Canada, directed by Brian Macdonald. This is a filmed version of a stage performance, and the sets are beautifully spare and economical.

Lee G (ru) wrote: I got a strange sense of unease while watching this film. The cast is good, but it felt like the screenplay just didn't have enough substance to make it really solid. It is predictable, and there's not many laughs, not that Alzheimer's and head injuries are supposed to be funny. Some scenes are set up and never resolved in a satisfying way. Most just end up seeming terribly sad.
Private U (it) wrote: Loved this movie more than the original. It goes more into depth about our mind and how the observer really affects his/her environment and "reality". I loved the idea of a science of possibilities like quantum physics. Just a different way of looking at things and thinking about the world around us.
Dann M (us) wrote: Pure is a dark and gritty drama about drug addiction and the bonds of family. The story surrounds a 10-year-old boy who's struggling to keep his family together and to help is mother beat her drug addiction. Molly Parker and Keira Knightley both give solid performance, but it's Harry Eden's performance that carries the film. Eden gives a truly compelling and moving performance that's heartbreaking at time as his character suffers the abuses of his mother, who's suffering from withdrawal. The film has some storytelling issues that cause the film to drag and wander a bit, which breaks up the momentum. Pure presents an interesting view of a family's battle with drug addiction, but it has some problems staying on message.

Although there is a love story roped in too, it blends in perfectly with the genre and instead of providing gay songs to ease the tension of the movie (like most films have), there are a few comedy bits in correct proportions. It's one of the finest films (yes, out of all Hindi and International films) I've seen and I recommend everyone with good taste and don't-take-shit attitude to watch it.
Okkay W (ca) wrote: I guess I wasn't sure what to expect when I sat down to watch this. My sisters have had a certain affection for it for a long time but I had not yet watched it until now. It is certainly cheesy at times but is not too bad. Kind of interesting. Heartwarming? whatever. something like that.

Kris V (br) wrote: Sleazy 1974 Franco with his usual cast of Howard Vernon and Lina Romay, noticeable for its modern and brightly lit settings, eerie soundtrack and Franco's abundant use of his trademark out-of-focus zoom-shots.
Steen T (kr) wrote: I'd heard a lot of good things about it and knew that it was Flynn's personal favourite of all the movies he'd starred in, so my expectations were ridiculously high - I could only be disappointed, right? Wrong. It was everything I'd hoped for and more. Flynn was never more charismatic and charming than in this movie, and he makes for a plausible boxer with some great foot-work and a terrific left jab. I think I enjoyed it even more than my other Flynn favourites, Robin Hood and The Sea Hawk. I laughed, I cried... I feel like I could re-watch it every day for the rest of my life.
