Anne A (de) wrote: I've read the critics and wonder if most of the men having at Mighty Fine noticed that it isn't for little boys. This is how it is when a woman, damaged by her own history, depends on and covers for a man whose rages terrify, whose calculating generosity dazzles, and whose lies and failures turn the ground to quicksand. This is the story of what that collusion does to a family. I recognize it. So did most of the people in the audience with me. Chasing cheap labor and tax incentives of the '70s South in a last ditch effort to save his wheezing garment biz, Joe Fine, a bi-polar tough guy, abuser/lover moves his New York Jewish family to Louisiana and all hell, mostly private, breaks loose. From the opening scene, a trippy, grimly funny, claustrophobic car ride from Brooklyn to the bayou, director Debbie Goodstein captures the dangerous thrill ride that's life with an undiagnosed, smooth-talking, delusional manic-depressive.Chazz Palminteri's Joe bribes and browbeats his Holocaust survivor wife (Andie MacDowell) who, despite her fragility, willfully hangs onto the illusion of the good husband and father. The elder of Joe's two adolescent daughters (Rainey Qualley), sick of both parents' pathology, lets loose a rebel yell you can hear from New Orleans to New York City. The younger daughter (Jodelle Ferland), unripe, scared and quietly brazen, agonizes over the truth and puts it in writing. Mighty Fine is also a woman's film, a dar comedy. It's written, directed, produced by a woman; told from a woman(TM)s point of view, set in a household dominated by a man but densely inhabited by females. Leaves me wondering how come that so far, there's not one woman reviewer to add a XX perspective to this flawed but intimate and honest film?

Emile H (ru) wrote: Since the first listen of "Falling Slowly", I knew I was going to fall in love with this film instantly. The movie is short but contains the most substance and some hopeful charm. It's a love story, but more of the love of music than anything else. It's in the songs and the performers where we feel much of the emotion. Many struggling musicians feel that in the songs we ourselves sing, write, and/or play. That realism, plus the atmosphere of a working class city, makes it such a fresh take on the musical genre, let alone modern film in general.

Andrey B (ru) wrote: The film is well-crafted and riveting, especially Brando's and Brynner's performances, but the sentimental overtly theatrical Jewess' element stains an overall impression about the movie.
STCENTERPRISE (nl) wrote: Let There be LightActually I was surprised that for a documentary made in shortly after World War II that it adequately represented more ethnicities than just Caucasians. This film I thought was useful for historic purposes, psychologist, and families trying to understand how to go about family members after war veterans come back home. I thought that it was great that this was mostly real footage rather than people acting. I never realised all the kinds of things veterans did such as artwork, prep for civilian jobs and so fourth. I thought it was good that there was a happy ending but not always is there as happy of an ending as presented in the film as some psychological damage is permeant. I thought this was an interesting and useful documentary.
