A meditation on civilization. July, 2001: friends wave as a cruise ship departs Lisbon for Mediterranean ports and the Indian Ocean. On board and on day trips in Marseilles, Pompeii, Athens, Istanbul, and Cairo, a professor tells her young daughter about myth, history, religion, and wars. Men approach her; she's cool, on her way to her husband in Bombay. After Cairo, for two evenings divided by a stop in Aden, the captain charms three successful, famous (and childless) women, who talk with wit and intellect, each understanding the others' native tongue, a European union. The captain asks mother and child to join them. He gives the girl a gift. Helena sings. Life can be sweet.

Cameron M (de) wrote: One of the greatest coming of age stories I have ever seen. The relationship between these characters is wonderfully realistic and the actors portray their characters very well. What the characters feel in this film is most likely feelings we've all felt before, but too complex to express, and this film almost does the perfectly. In additon, the atmosphere of the film is entrancing,added on by the soundtrack which creates a feel of psychological isolation and creates a feeling of loneliness that a film has never given me before. If you are a correct human being, see this film.

Matthew O (ca) wrote: 1941 is the very definition of an okay movie that had all the material to be a masterpiece, great actors, funny jokes, excellent effects, it was all there, but it just wasn't used in the right way. Nonetheless 1941, while being rather dull and weak in the beginning, somewhere along the line starts to get good, with some downright memorable scenes, from a conversation with a heights fearing man on a ferris wheel to a bizarre propaganda speech in the center of town. Those are the moments that bump this up to a 3-star and save this movie from the fate it could have had. It's still a bit dreary in some parts, specifically a dance contest sub plot, and it doesn't have the wit and timing of it's inspirations It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and Dr. Strangelove, but it's worth a watch for the good stuff, and trust me, that stuff is worth it.
