The Place Beyond the Pines

  • Excerpt: Ik vond het een mooie film, met voldoende actie en een verrassende wending. Het lijken haast twee verhalen die uiteraard wel een film vormen. Het eerste uur vond ik persoonlijk beter dan het tweede uur. De hoofdrolspeler met het blonde haar speelt zijn rol uitstekend, in het tweede deel mindere acteurs.

  • Excerpt: The Place Beyond The Pines is een zeer bijzondere film, die op een vreemde manier drama én misdaadthriller is. De cast zorgt ervoor dat het verhaal op gang komt en het camerawerk draagt bij aan de sfeer. Minpunt is wat mij betreft de grimage: de flashforward van 15 is niet of nauwelijks aan de acteurs de zien. Vooral hoofdrolspeler Bradley Cooper lijkt niets veranderd en dat is helaas niet mogelijk.

  • Excerpt: A very well written story told from four points of view all interwoven to a conclusion that seems predictable but perhaps a bit cliche'd but non the less a satisfying closure to the tale. Featuring an very good cast of characters played by Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes and Bradley Cooper, Place Beyond the Pines is dark, depressing and dramatic at it's best. On the high-def side PQ is very good with some natural grain, smooth colors and good dark edging.

  • Excerpt: Dit is een aparte film. Wel een goede film, maar niet zoals veel andere films. Zoals al eerder gezegd in de vorige recensies, bestaat deze film uit meerdere delen. Dat hield me in eerste instantie een beetje tegen om deze film te kijken, omdat ik had verwacht dat het een onsamenhangend verhaal zou zijn. Dat is gelukkig niet het geval. Het verhaal is goed en wordt goed uitgewerkt. Een aanrader.

  • Excerpt: Amazing film. After 2010s Blue Valentine, Derek Cianfrance again partners with Ryan Gosling on a film about the workings of the family unit, but this time he focuses on fathers in particular. The film is split into three interrelated storylines, each one so well done and excellently developed that we almost get 3 (great) films at once. At a lengthy 2hrs.

The Place Beyond the Pines review

25 June 2013
  • Excerpt: An epic in its own right, just spotless on all accounts. This will have an impact for fathers (as myself who just became one a year ago), kids who remember/have their old man and enjoy a brilliant picture with countless lessons to pick-up from. It is impossible not to get moved from the three stories.

A song of light and darkness.

  • Excerpt: The title of this review may seem somewhat implausible and overbearing to some, but when I think of the first time I watched The Place Beyond the Pines this year, I feel a connection. This is one of those movies that reminds me why I love going to the cinema, why a movie can be more than entertainment once in a while.

Review: The Place Beyond the Pines

  • Excerpt: The Place Beyond the Pines stars Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, two gifted and dynamic actors who have been doing nothing lately but impressing me by their performances. If you thought Bradley Cooper was great in Silver Linings Playbook, wait until you see him here as a hopeful cop slowly being eaten away by guilt. It takes strength and guts to pull off this role, and Cooper nails it.

  • Summary: 'The Place Beyond the Pines' is a powerful drama, whose story encompasses themes of fractured father/son relationships, tough life-making decisions, and forgiveness. The film is so well acted, written and directed that there felt a great sense of realism. I was completely engrossed in this world and these character's lives. There are many stingingly honest moments, some of which reminded me of my own troubles.
