Charlie J (us) wrote: The technician and pianists studied up close in Pianomania, a 2009 Austrian documentary, are searching for the perfect sound. They always get close, but I am not sure any of them well confess to ever actually hearing it. Stefan Knupfer is Steinway & Sons master technician based out of Vienna. He works at the Vienna concert house tuning, re-tuning, breaking apart and re-constructing grand pianos. Working closely with the most famous and skilled pianists in the world including Lang Lang and Pierre-Laurent Aimard, they have intense discussions concerning tone, flavor, color, air, etc... It turns out that grand pianos each have their own respective flavor, shape, and feeling. Is the sound round or too round? Is it full, thick, thin, light, or heavy? In Pianomania, Stefan describes the piano as the perfect music machine. Its full volume can reach 4000 in a single hall. Conversely, another technician raises the question of just how much of a musical instrument it really is. It takes three people just to move it around and if you draw on a particular string you will slice your hand open. Pierre-Laurent Aimard will record Bach concertos in one year at the concert hall. A full year before these recordings, Stefan is already hard at work on it. He travels to Hamburg to painstakingly select the back-up piano in case the first one is not to Pierre's liking. He goes over to the Hofburg to consult harpsichord and clavichord experts because he feels he must know their sounds better. He almost self destructs when new hammerheads arrive (the parts which hit the piano strings) and they are 0.7mm too skinny, a fact he can tell just by looking at them. Throughout the year, Stefan works hand-in-hand with all of these accomplished solo pianists to find the sound they are so desperately trying to describe. Tension frequently arises when they either cannot understand one another or when a piano sounds amazing to one person but like garbage to another. Well into the film, it is not odd to hear phrases such as "the tone is fine, it is what is in the tone which sounds off." Listening to the musicians play after they have finally decided the piano is ready is a real pleasure. There are extended sequences devoted to them. The camera work veers off every now and then though to try and match the sounds such as filming clouds reflecting on water or blurry neon lights. Those shots do not work very well but they are few and far between. Also, once the Bach recordings begin a year later, they can become quite tedious as you will see microphones adjusted and re-adjusted and Stefan running up and down the stairs repeatedly between the stage and the recording booth. This conveys exactly what it is supposed to, that recording major works of classical music is extremely challenging, but it also not very amusing for the audience either. I recommend Pianomania to those who appreciate classical music and would like to peek behind the curtain a bit. Beware to those of you who do not seem interested by these descriptions, you will probably be bored.

Hasan G (au) wrote: An excellent subject and a very well made movie. Anil Kapoor has done magic for his first movie production. Akshay was very impressive in his acting, but so was Shefali Shah. Definitely would win some award. Very deep and sensitive story about father and son relationship. Again, this movie is for a selected few. Its not for those who love movies like Welcome or Krishh. Its for a different niche. I loved it and would strongly recommend it.

Andrew S (au) wrote: The turning point in the life of Ed Pekurny (Matthew McConaughey) comes thanks to the misfortunes of the NorthWest Broadcasting Company. After two years on the air, their flagship cable channel, True TV, has slid into obscurity due to competition from the The Gardening Channel. Program director Cynthia Topping (Ellen DeGeneres) brainstorms a last ditch effort to save the channel: broadcast one ordinary person's life 24 hours a day, unedited (while he sleeps, the day's highlights will be shown). When the network agrees to the idea, Topping must find the subject of her program. After endless auditions, she lucks upon Ed, a goofy but good-looking video store clerk. Ed has little time to get used to his new shadow, a three man video crew, before the show becomes a hit. Suddenly Ed's a cultural icon with fan clubs, stalkers, and imitators, but the media saturation has it's effects on his friends and family, who are now part of the program. Ed alienates his proud brother, Ray (Woody Harrelson), by falling in love with his girlfriend, Shari (Jenna Elfman). His estranged father Hank (Dennis Hopper) reappears after abandoning the family and creates tension between Ed and Ray's mother, Jeanette (Sally Kirkland) and her wheelchair-bound second husband, Al (Martin Landau). When Ed realizes the phenomenon has turned on him, he convinces Topping to stop the ordeal, but not her boss, Whitaker (Rob Reiner). To regain his life, Ed must find a way to cancel EDtv.

Lu A (br) wrote: i really enjoyed this murder mystery/romantic comedy..(really) it was alot of fun and engrossing enough..redford is so charming and gorgeous in this..i miss seeing him in movies.

Nik B (jp) wrote: I laughed. I cried. I threw my hands in the air and I waved them like I just didn't care. It's commitment when you watch an entire movie just to catch thirty seconds of early Beastie Boys. What I didn't need to see: Rick Rubin in his pink Fruit of the Looms. I was surprised at how capable Sheila E. was at carrying the female lead, even if she really just looks like Prince put on (more) make-up. I can't believe that the longest scene was the awful full performance of Fat Boys' "All You Can Eat" I guess it's an important historical account of the early rap scene. Not being a fan, I rate the flick on its merit as a film. I may have enjoyed more a straight documentary.

Harpreet S (us) wrote: Only reason to watch this film is the cinematography. The acting and writing are very poor. The great Robert De Niro fails in this one also. Over-the-top. There is no character development. Very disappointing.

Tom H (us) wrote: Good movie and overall better than expected.

Matt B (de) wrote: A colossal disaster. COLOSSAL. Embarrassing. Unfunny. Stupid. Skip this by all means.

Ariana M (ca) wrote: For what it is, it's a lot of fun, not to mention it's got some truly hilarious lines, some of which you'd never dream would come out of the Jungle 2 Jungle kid's mouth! Also features an awesome soundtrack, which is always a plus.
