Excerpt: A difficult, hard edged, unsettling movie which covers some difficult subject matter. Ultimately, the view is rewarded with a human drama that is life affirming, and shown the human spirit at its most fragile and best, inspite of, and despite the difficulties that life presents people with!
Summary: Jacques Audiard has a gift for uncompromising, gritty, good news stories. The
fairy tale endings of two of the three films I've seen of his don't jar as they
might with a less skilful director. This isn't my favourite of the three –
his first film, Read My Lips, remains the best of his I've seen.
Conclusion: The film is a realistic tale of the turmoil and tortures of life, the ability to help one another and make it through the tough times and enjoying the good times which sometimes can be short. This is a subtitled film, however don't let this put you off.
Summary: This movie is about our frailties as human beings and our strength of spirit to overcome them. It is also about finding love and acceptance during the most challenging transitions in life. Beautiful story. Excellent acting by everyone!
Summary: Marion Cottilard is worth going along to this for. Damn she is fine even without the legs. I got dragged to this 'arty' film by a girl who likes to see depressing stuff apparently and if you are going to get dragged along to watch 'art' it mayas well have Marion in it. Kept me awake.
Summary: an intense emotive drama high on testosterone ,the male lead a brutish yet compelling guy who for all his faults sees past the obvious , i was drawn in to the ugly and dysfunctional life by his blind compassion and brutal bloodthirsty desire to win , it was nice to see a female lead who didnt play...
Summary: This is not the most pleasant movie to watch. It's brutal, raw, and sometimes heart breaking. And at times, I felt an intense hatred towards the male lead. But it is all done quite beautifully, and it is a great story. Marion Cotillard is amazing and played her role so convincingly.
