The Pleasure Garden
A small picturesque town at the turn of the century. The conservative views of the townspeople are shaken when they find out that the school teacher Franzén published his own poetry anonymously many years ago. At the same time he acknowledges his love affair with a waitress at the city hotel, Fanny. What is most upsetting is the fact that Fanny has a grownup daughter, Anna, with no known father. Could their poet teacher be the father although he and Fanny are not married? Plot by Mattias Thuresson.

(nl) wrote: Definitely not the best Clint Eastwood has to offer. It is surprisingly safe, and basically just follows the script of the musical. The reason why I give it a mild recommendation is I like the music, and there are enough songs in here to keep me through to the end. The period look is also captured pretty well. And I liked the actors playing Tommy and Frankie. From a storytelling perspective, it lacks a bit. And it bugged me that Clint had to put a shot in there of a character watching one of his movies.
(br) wrote: A very raw and realistic film that doesn't sugar-coat it. Great movie with a great cast to helm it. Zoe Kravitz is just perfect. I admire the director, Victoria Mahoney, for giving it her all to sprout her vision onto the movie scene. The experience of the film was very humble and not over the top. It was simple, but complex. Great independent film and hope that more people get to watch it and love it as much as I had.

(nl) wrote: This Priceless masterpiece has just enough gore to fit the plotline, but not enough gore to bog it down. A perfect balance with perfect acting. And, I have to point out that though the poodle scene was twisted (to say the least,) it balanced out the Looney Tune-esque attitude of Vincent's lines in the scene. Overall, this is an excellent movie, and I highly recommend giving it at least a chance.
