(de) wrote: Directed by Peter Weir, who at the time had just come off the critically acclaimed drama Dead Poet's Society (1989). Here, he wanted to do something quite different, a light and fluffy film. Only slightly based on Weir's time living and working in America, but it was also a chance to work with Grard Depardieu, who was just about ready to crack America (briefly) at that time. In New York, Bront Parrish (Andie MacDowall) is a keen horticulturist who has found the perfect flat with it's own garden. Only one snag, it's for married couples only. At the same time, she's introduced to Frenchman Georges Faure (Depardieu), who has found the perfect job in America, but he needs a Green Card to get it. So Bront and Georges agree upon a "marriage of convenience", in order to convince the immigration authorities, they have to appear to be in love with one another. Which is difficult when they hardly know each other, plus the neighbours in the flat are suspicious, but Bront and Georges soon get along. Weir does well with this slightly amusing comedy of cultural clashes and there is the odd bit of farce thrown in for good measure. It's not 100% perfect, but Weir was perfectly entitled to do something lighter after a lot of serious films, and Depardieu does well in his first American film.

This movie is also remarkable in that it was the first motion picture in the united states with a black man in the lead role. Don't let the Al Sharptons of the world confuse you into not seeking out this film. It's one of Disney's early best, an early experiment in making a feature length film combining live action and animation, leading to other films like Mary Poppins.

(gb) wrote: As a Metallica concert film, this isn't bad. The band has really gone through some effort to return to it's roots, and the show is about 85% material from their first three albums ... and they do pretty good versions of these songs. All things considered, I'd rather just be listening to the albums, but this is an entertaining if not very exciting show. The really elaborate, gimmicky stage show they have rigged up is mildly engaging, but I get the sense that it would be more impressive in person than it is on film. Where this film really crashes and burns is on the entirely unnecessary and pointless plot line that is interspersed with the live footage. Dane DeHaan plays a roadie who is sent out during the show to receive some package the band really needs. He encounters rioting, destruction, fire, demonic horseman ... and it's all totally dull and pointless. At the very end of the show, some destruction that's loosely connected to the fictional plot line causes the band to abandon their intricate stage show and to play a last song just huddled together as a group on a normal stage. James Hetfield says this reminds him of their garage and "Kill 'em All", and they play "Hit the Lights". Yeah, guys ... exactly. Throughout this movie you come off as a cross between Alive-era Kiss and Led Zeppelin from "The Song Remains the Same". I don't dislike either of these bands, but the suit doesn't really fit Metallica very well.
