How I Live Now

DVD Talk

  • Conclusion: . It's just not a good movie. There aren't a lot of poetic things you can say about the poor quality of the film, the people who make it just didn't do a good job. The plot was difficult to accept, the emotion of the scenes never came off as real, and the acting was poor bordering on awful. They took a good premise and failed to make a strong film, simple as that. On a positive note, both the video & audio qualities were excellent, as were the extras on the disc.

DVD Review: How I Live Now

Film Guide

  • Excerpt: Teen fiction seems to be the way to make money in Hollywood these days. Set your film in a dystopian future and have a girl and a boy fall in love, even though they shouldn’t. Have them fight the system. Candy-coat everything in a nice safe ratings board way, to ensure maximum viewer-ship. Wait to the cash to flow.

How I Live Now

8 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Изменив в последний момент слово «живу» на «люблю», русские прокатчики, конечно, сделали название прямолинейнее, потому что фильм — отнюдь не военная драма, а мелодрама на фоне войны, основанная на романе для девочек-подростков. Хотя создалось впечатление, что режиссёра не интересовала романтическая линия, как не интересовала его и Третья мировая, начатая абстрактными террористами. Он будто был увлечён темой куда более сложной и небанальной — человеческой невинностью.
