The Violin

The Violin

In an unnamed Latin American country that closely resembles Mexico, the government fights a rural insurgency with torture, assault, rape, and murder. Soldiers descend on a town, cutting off the rebels from their cache of ammunition hidden in a field. A family of grandfather, son, and grandson are among the rebels in the hills. The grandfather, with his violin over his shoulder, tries to pass the checkpoint, ostensibly to tend his corn crop. The commanding officer lets him pass but insists on a daily music lesson.

The Violin torrent reviews

Erno K (fr) wrote: Overall, this one was a bit worse than the first animated movie, but it gives more background info and it has a stronger ending, so I will consider them about equal.The animation quality is again poor, but in a totally different way. Now the reason is bad CGI. In addition to that, they constantly switch between computer generated animation and the regular kind, which is irritating. I think the style of the latter even changes from time to time, which is even more confusing.All in all, as a stand-alone movie this would be crappy as hell, but as a companion piece to the second game (That I will play through next) it is acceptable, and the setting is definitely interesting to start my next dissecting adventure in the space.

Carreh R (au) wrote: Amazing film. The way the editing, cinematography, music, mystery and confusion all play to build on a tale as old as time. A kind of gothic romance. An archetype of love.

Arsev A (ca) wrote: What an interesting movie! Very innovative, very gripping. A-must-see, Hollywood could learn a few tricks from this Asian crime thriller.

Corey C (fr) wrote: Uniquely unenjoyable, given what it's supposed to be.

John A (gb) wrote: Gallowwalkers Is A Western Mixed With Zombies, But Not The Flesh-Eating Kind, The Original Kind, The Undead. Wesley Snipes Stars As A Cursed Gunman, Everyone Who Dies By His Hand Becomes A Gallowwalker (Zombie), These Gallowwalkers Are Based On The Original Zombie - No Flesh Eating - No Gore. Which Makes This Work, The Only Way Still To Kill A Zombie Is By Severing The Head, Which Does Give Some Violence. A Pretty Decent Film Which Is One Of Snipes' Best For A Long Time.

Skyler B (mx) wrote: Pretty OK, but at the end of the day I always felt bad that Jennifer Garner let the memory of her fiance go for that sleeze bag character. It made me sad.

Mario L (mx) wrote: Lot's of great laughs.

Michael O (ca) wrote: Chris Elliott at his zaniest. It's too bad this is mostly forgotten.

Daniel C (ca) wrote: Its highly recommended to fans who love extreme gore like me. Its funny as it is insanely gory. A old classic comedy horror.

Christine K (ag) wrote: Maybe I should become a critic. The 'audience' certainly missed the brilliance.

John H (us) wrote: Certainly not Fellini's best - but a great seminal work nonetheless. The plot meanders aimlessly, much like the crowd of "guys", in this small Italian town and rounds off with all having to eventually come to the terms that they are not getting any younger and must take on some form of responsibility for themselves and others. The Fabrizi character is annoyingly predictable. The Fellini-alter ego is insufferably pathetic as he watches his friend openly cheat on his own sister. But the group as a whole provides a considerable amount of charm.What really makes this film really interesting is if you watch Scorsese's Mean Streets at the same time - came out exactly 20 years after this film and has many striking similarities.

Johnny T (gb) wrote: The Spectacular Now is an adroit, sensitive film that avoids typical coming-of-age story trappings. There are scenes, moments, and dialogue in this film that ring so true that it all comes rushing back, a flood of memories and emotions and a little bit of pain. An unusually evasive piece of filmmaking - hard to pin down, but all the more worthwhile for its craftiness. The focus in James Ponsoldt's affecting, intelligent drama is a pair of teenagers, and in them is so much complexity and heart that this casually paced gem feels rich in scope. They're two of the most carefully created figures on screen, and yet their normalness takes us by surprise.Every time the film teeters on the precipice of a generic plot point it satisfyingly withdraws into more subtle and nuanced territory that ultimately coalesces in a final act that is sentimental without being sugary. This low-budget production is all about the performances, with Kyle Chandler turning up late in the piece as Sutter's father, Smashed's Mary Elizabeth Winstead as his slightly snobby sister and a cool supporting cast of appealing young 'uns. What you thought would be a generic high-school romance turns into an edgy character drama with dark, uncompromising undertones. James Ponsoldt's film, and its stars, Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley, continually take us in unexpected directions, giving the film an unexpected depth. It feels real, its emotions earned.VERDICT: "High-Quality Stuff" - [Positive Reaction] This is a rating to a movie I view as very entertaining and well made, and definitely worth paying the full price at a theatre to see or own on DVD. It is not perfect, but it is definitely excellent. (Films that are rated 3.5 or 4 stars)
