The Silent House
Laura (Florencia Colucci) and her father Wilson (Gustavo Alonso) arrive at a cottage off the beaten path in order to repair it since its owner (Abel Tripaldi) will soon put the house on sale. They will spend the night there in order to start the repairs the following morning. Everything seems to go on smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder in the upper floor of the house. Wilson goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own waiting for her father to come down. The plot is based on a true story that occurred in the 1940s in a small village in Uruguay. La casa muda focuses on the last seventy eight minutes, second by second, as Laura tries to leave the house unharmed and discovers the dark secret it hides.

The movie begins quite slowly letting us get to know what the family is like. After the attack the mother keeps a journal and we see several scenes from happier days played on a projector in the mothers memory. Besides from two bright flashes of light this movie offers no other special effects but it does show us emotional devastation,suffering,personal loss and heartbreak in a realistic and believable manner. Quite a few scenes brought tears to my eyes and i think i am in need of a feel good film.
(us) wrote: A short and sweet romantic comedy that is delightfully quirky and due for rediscovery. I was sad that this film was not included in the Cassavetes Criterion Collection box set. Gena is as fantastic as ever, especially in her scenes of drunken abandon. I fell that her and Catherine O'Hare are the queens of playing drunk. They make it seem like a dance. Try to find this strange yet charming underrated 70's romance.
(ag) wrote: A real psychological thriller. The tense direction, coupled with the menacing Klein-Rogge, one can sense the descent into madness experienced by all of the characters. The film has a tendency to drag on, being almost four hours, but split into two parts, you can enjoy them on different days.

(de) wrote: A definite copy of the Italian Job, but with some small changes. The characters act a lot more gangster, and it is an almost all black cast for the robbery team with the exception of Paul Walker and Matt Dillon, who fit right in with the rest. It dosen't differ much from Italian Job, and besides the cast, the big differences are how these men will kill for the money, the hiest dosen't go at all according to plan, and in the end only two survive. The movie also focuses on two cops who are out on the job to find these men, and their story is pretty good, and without it the movie would have been definatly missing something important. Most characters do seem to be missing on depth, but later in the movie it is kinda resolved. The action scenes are not great, but not bad, as the sound effects are cheap and overused. The last battles in the apartment against the Russians was good, with the light music playing over most of the battle sounds and the opposing sides firing through the walls, and very little if any blood was shown. The next small shootout where two of them walked out in front of a blockade of cops and where gunned down follows the same idea as the other one with the light music and is a very good scene. But all in all it is a copy of another movie, and even in this film it is said that they should go "Italian job" on the armored truck, and the movie plays out very similar to that film with the hole blown into the subway that the truck falls through, the betrayal of their friend, and the hacking of the lights at the intersections. So no points for originality although some stuff was changed, some scenes were well and good, and the action was ok. Ok movie, to bad it didn't have a different idea behined it all.
(ca) wrote: Bit bewildered as to why they felt the need to throw in a few biblical figures from the old testament but any who 'Year One' manages to be better than it should have been due to its cast. I was expecting a diarrhoea of a comedy but what we get instead is a polished turd. The plot is a string of unstructured events with kiss-chase romances at the heart of it and they most likely got the title from the age group which wrote the material (prepare for simple sexual innuendos, fart gags and exaggerated homosexual impersonations). Nevertheless, Jack Black, Michael Cera and talented extras such as David Cross thankfully bring their own funny and familiar characteristics, making the comedy funnier than it actually was due to good timing and delivery. They are basically playing their usual selves. Jack Black, the eccentric and naive rocker. Michael Cera, the quick-witted but passive adolescent. Probably a wrong pairing since they don't share any strong chemistry but if you're fans of these actors individually then there is something here to amuse.
