Two very young extremely talented actors are together lifting this masterpiece to a higher level than it would have been without them! Ralph Fiennes and Cate Blanchett have glorious, quirky chemistry in the title roles. Ralph Fiennes is such a mercurial actor that while watching this film, it's hard to believe this is the same man that played Amon Goeth in Schindler's List and the Count in The English Patient - completely different people, not even carrying themselves in the same way! Based on Australian novelist, Peter Carey's award-winning book, Oscar and Lucinda, this is a faithful period piece about iconoclasts and their attempt to find love and purpose in strait-laced society despite their fears and obsessions.
(ag) wrote: As an avid fan of both Leon: The Professional and Highlander, a collaboration between Christophe Lambert and Luc Besson sounded all too perfect to me, particurlarly since Christophe Lambert won the Cesar Award for Best Actor for it which is the French equivalent of the Academy Awards.Similar to the 1991 French film Delicatessen directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Subway explores the complicated underground of a society of people living in their own sheltered location. Its characters are an interesting bunch of subway dwellers with their own iconic characteristics to each of them who live out there lives away from normal society. However, it doesn't really take its concept that far and tends to play on repetitive character antics for the most of the film. But there are a few too many characters and so the story becomes rather scattershot in terms of focus. I can never tell where it is really going or what it is doing, so the experience of Subway felt more to me like some kind of zany French party than an actual film experience. It is full of characters and an interesting setting, but not all that much of a story whatsoever so I didn't feel that things were developing all that well over the course of Subway. And despite the fact that Luc Besson puts a fairly effective script into the story, he doesn't write in that many meaningful characters or too much of a story and so I really can't say that I enjoyed the film.Luc Besson simply does not give Subway a story. The paper thin narrative of the film attempts to overshadow itself with a lot of colourful visual elements and style, but it doesn't have enough to succeed in doing that. It doesn't deliver enough of a story to entertain or much depth at all, and so it is a rather shallow venture on behalf of Luc Besson. It shows off his style as a director and has him experimenting with the film style he would later furnish, but underneath that really isn't much that viewers today would find themselves enjoying aside from a little 1980's nostalgia which comes from the style of the film and its soundtrack. The story in Subway goes in many directions, but it never stays consistently on a single path and ends up attempting to explore too much territory for its own good and never really taking advantage of its high concept plot or clarifying all that well just what the motivations of the characters are.Luc Besson's direction makes Subway stylish because he incorporates a lot of excellent scenery with great cinematography and costumes and such to make Subway an iconic 1980's visual experience which has the same kinetic energy and feel of a film of the genre and timeframe but not a story worth remembering. While there is some fun in the energetic characters and some of the imagery such as a man jumping over subway tracks as he races through on his roller skates, but aside from that I will only really remember Subway as a film which gave Christophe Lambert a pretty nuts haircut. Perhaps the film is a statement about freedom and enjoying life in all corners of the earth, but if that is true then I shouldn't have to wonder. I should have the film giving me thorough support in my assumption, but unfortunately I can only make this one on the basis of the fact that the film came from the 1980's and the characters had a certain spirit to them.Frankly, the only aspects of Subway that are all that great are the visual style and the cast, and while I wouldn't necessarily say that they are enough to justify going out of your way to see Subway, I can say for sure that the acting in Subway is a pretty effective element which makes the drama of the story at least a little compelling.Christophe Lambert's performance in Subway is one of the most meaningful of his career. While perhaps it isn't as iconic worldwide as his role as Connor MacLeod in Highlander, it expresses a lot of his superior skills as an actor because it requires him to speak in his native language and interact with more realistic situations, including acting through his myopia and engaging with a cast playing a bunch of complicated characters. And with ease and an awesome haircut, he manages to give it his all and characterise Fred as a compelling and likeable character which audiences are likely to find themselves asking questions about. He has a certain mysterious appeal and that makes him a good protagonist for Subway, so Christophe Lambert's acting is the key asset for any viewer likely to enjoy Subway. And while I didn't, I enjoyed his lead effort and how he engaged with the other actors. His win for the Cesar Award for Best Actor is a well-deserved one, and it is awarded to some of his greatest skills as an actor which audiences will bear witness to in Subway, so he proves to work well with director and writer Luc Besson.And Isabelle Adjani gives a strong performance as well. Engaging with the complex universe of the film well and sharing a strong chemistry with Christophe Lambert. Her talents as an actress stem from her strong facial gestures and ability to tune her emotions into her line delivery without problem, and so she makes a compelling and genuine case which makes Subway a more enjoyable experience.Jean Reno's small role was a nice touch as well, considering that he would later work with Luc Besson on the excellent French film Leon: The Proffesional.But despite the efforts of Christophe Lambert in the lead role and a few visual aspects which leave the film energetic and reminiscent of its 1980's timeframe in a certain fun way, Subway is a disappointment on behalf of writer and director Luc Besson who gives it a weak story and fails to go in depth and exploration about what is happening in the universe he has created himself.

Does it have numerous masterful elements that are worthy of praise? Yes. I feel like this is a film that will (very) slowly become greater and greater to me as I rewatch it over the years. It took getting about halfway through the film for me to start loving it, and by the ending showdown I was enraptured.

While the story is definetely unique it gets kind of boring by the end. It makes sense that there would be some problems adjusting to life on the road and the life of fame. Arnel comes out of obscurity to sing in front of thousands of fans every night. An interesting story that could probably have been told in half the time.
