(de) wrote: A very well made, family oriented film. Carries a great message for all people that says, you are never too far from God. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Terrific story with a wonderful cast. I hope to see more films of this genre have a great impact on it's viewers like this one did to me and my family.

(de) wrote: Comes off as weak sauce and with almost no direction. The film seems to wander aimlessly through Jefferson's years in Paris without much point. There he is talking to his daughter who hates slaves and wants to join a Parisian convent. There he is flirting with a married Italian woman. There he is flirting, maybe?, with his young slave. There he is talking to French people. Not only does the film not have a clear story in mind, it also seems to forget that not everyone speaks French. There are a number of conversations all in French with no subtitles. Just people speaking French for whole scenes. I can see where Nick Nolte may have kind've had the look, but he was pretty bland as Jefferson. Thandie Newton was fun to watch; vibrant and interesting. Gwyneth Paltrow was also interesting as a spoiled, confused teenager.
(gb) wrote: The synopsis of this movie might make it seem to be quite dull, however this film is anything but. Rather it stands along with its sequel as a sharp, witty critique of modern Japanese culture. But compelling political satire isn't known for making friends of everyone. Kinda makes one wonder about his supposed 'suicide' in '97...

Subversiva, pero tambi (C)n honesta, "Polyester" es tan mala que termina siendo buena...lo que sea que eso signifique...

(jp) wrote: The Help is a faithful adaptation of Kathryn Stocketts novel - although with an undeniably flawed direction - about racial prejudice and social inequality in the 50s from the point of view of black maids of Mississipi. Often heartbreaking - sometimes hopeful and funny - The Help is clearly elevated by its wonderful cast : Octavia Spencers temperamental Minny, Jessica Chastains naive and tender Celia, Cicely Tysons insightful Constantine, Alisson Janneys manipulative Charlotte, Emma Stones confident Skeeter and, shining above all with a larger than life performance, Viola Davis Aibileen, whose superb acting continues to linger even after the credit rolls.
(kr) wrote: Thoroughly enjoyed the story as it unfolded, particularly of Carey Mulligan. A real tear-jerker...
