David J (us) wrote: Decent addition to the heist movie genre especially given the low budget. Reynolds as always is excellent, doesnt have much to do in terms of comedy but he is spot on in everything else, ditto Suchet as the Brit bad guy. The supporting cast are a bit of a letdown though and are very wooden but the plot and twist are half decent and this is well worth a look if you have a spare hour and a half.

Cindy I (ru) wrote: Interesting but not great story about how Adolf Hitler's failed art career may have intercected with, and possibly actually inspired, his political career. This film is in the style of Gods and Monsters, whereby a actual historiical figure's life is placed into a fictional setting as a means of trying to discover "what happened." John Cusack plays a fictional Jewish art dealer named Max Rothman who meets a 30-year old Hitler (Noah Taylor) in 1918, right after The Great War. Rothman is aware of Hitler's Anti-Semitism, but sees it as a source of artist inspiration rather than a actual threat. Rothman tries to convince Hitler to channel his rage into his paintings. In the process, the young Hitler discovers his true calling. Cusack, who I normally adore, got good reviews for his potrayal here, but I just couldn't take him seriously as this haughty, somewhat pretentious art dealer. I guess I'm too used to him as Mr. Everyman. I guess the subplot of Rothman's love triangle between himself, his wife and his mistress fit in somewhere, but I found it unnecessary. Noah Taylor, while pulling off the passion of Hitler OK, seemed more to me as a Sid Vicious "sex, drugs and rock n roll" type rather than future leader of the Fatherland. On the good side, the film looks great. The set design and costumes were excellent and believable, especially the abandoned train station where Rothman had his art gallery. And the edited-together scenes of Hitler giving a rabid speech about Jew and "pure blood" with Rothman and his family during a Jewish religious service were interesting. The first few minutes of this film set up a mood for me that made me anticipate more than the film ultimately delivered. I may give Max another chance one day to see if I feel differently, but for now it's "good try but no cigar."

Mohamed A (br) wrote: Powerful,Disturbing ,Amazing plot,The film is full of more than dark visions of humanity and society in which nothing is kind or likable and everyone is selfish, evil and worth nothing. The people around the butcher are stupid, mean spirited and know nothing about loving and caring, and the whole vision of life and world is one of the darkest I've ever witnessed in film. Similar experiences among cinema are Pier Paolo Pasolini's Sal o le 120 Giornate di Sodoma, Buddy Giovinazzo's Combat Shock, Scorsese's Taxi Driver and T.F Mous' extremely hard to take Men Behind the Sun. These films are similar in theme and all are very hard to take (and understand, for most of the people) and powerful experiences. Why are things this way? What is wrong with us, that the world cannot be safe and warm place to live, and why there is a need for suicide and death. Why can't the world be such a place that everyone wants to live and no one tries to kill and finish someone other's life? These mentioned films (and similar films which I didn't mention) are perhaps the most important there is because they punch even stupid people right on the face and grab their attention and show the real faces of things. Seul Contre Tous is a kind of film, which may change people's attitudes and ways of living, and that is probably the greatest achievement a film maker can reach with his work.

Andrew J (de) wrote: Well, I'm convinced. If I was a peasant in Russia and things were looking pretty bleak, I'd do what this film suggests and form a collective farm. Propaganda couldn't have been easy for the Bolsheviks. The wedding between the pedigree bull and cow was a little weird.
