Jessica L (au) wrote: The setting this movie takes place is well thought-out: replacing time with money. The plot does show the flaw of our current society: the rich becomes richer and the poor becomes more poor. It also showed how sudden rich can kill the poor because they don't know how to deal with it. However, my biggest problem is the character themselves not realizing the harm they are doing to the very people they try to help. In the end, what did they really accomplish? Robbed Weis of his riches and continuing robbing banks?This movie had a promising start but ended on a pointless note.

Lisa K (jp) wrote: Any movie based on a Sarah Waters novel is going to get good reviews from me... however, I didn't think this was as strong as, say Tipping the Velvet or Fingersmith. While the novel is my favorite of the three, the film is my least favorite. That being said, it would be really difficult to mess up such an intense story with such crazy plot twists. Definitely a must-see. On a relatively unrelated note, I went back to my copy of the novel and found a note I had written that said I imagined Selina Dawes' character played by Keira Knightley... I thought Zoe Tapper was about as close as we could have gotten to a Keira Knightley lookalike... interesting

Emily B (de) wrote: Beautiful in so many ways. The slowness may put some people off, but even those must surely admit that the locations and look of the film is stunning.
Tim M (it) wrote: Disappointing release from the director of "Bangkok Dangerous" and "The Eye". "Pang goes ultra-stylish in an uneven manner, crisscrossing slow-motion glamour shots with over-the-top comic music cues." An odd mix of shootouts and comedy. The climactic scenes in the middle and at the end are worth watching, the rest I skipped. For fans of Ekin Cheng.

Jim H (kr) wrote: George Sand courts Chopin amid 19th Century social conventions including duels and the oppression of women.A lush costume drama with strong performances by Judy Davis and Mandy Patinkin, Impromptu has all the trappings of a Merchant/Ivory production. Its sly wit and subtle conflicts are always engaging, but what sets this film apart from some of the - for lack of a better word - boredom of Merchant/Ivory's work is the performance by Patinkin. Riding into a woman's bedroom on a horse, drunkenly shooting the officiant of a duel, and a garrulous braggart demeanor, Patinkin injects some energy to a film that desperately needs it. Davis's portrayal of George Sand is believable; no actress can capture Sand's masculine guise and still retain a strain of femininity like Davis.What bothers me about the film is how the story ends up reinforcing the gender conventions of the time. George Sand pursues Chopin in a hybrid of a masculine assertiveness, but her eventual victory comes with subverting her desires to what's required of a typical female in the 19th Century. Even the man, Chopin, rows the boat in the final montage of coupledom bliss.Overall, I liked Impromptu for Patinkin and Davis, but George Sand, a revolutionary feminist figure, deserved a better fate.
Andrew C (au) wrote: I thought it was a cute movie, I greatly enjoyed it. It was like observing just a snippet into the lives of a couple who decide to go to Paris for their 30th wedding anniversary. If you like sweet little romance movies and don't mind stories involving "old" people, I highly recommend giving this one a shot.
