Lisa R (br) wrote: One of two Australian made films I saw at the Sydney Film Festival, both of which were set in Europe. Ewan Leslie was very good in the lead role as was Marton Csokas in a minor role late in the film, but the same can not be said for the actress who played the main characters mother. She seemed very poorly cast (age wise) and did not give a very consistent performance, as scenes with her felt very uneven.The film was shot well and in places not often scene in predominately English language films and the first half really set up the mystery and thriller like aspect, but it was let down badly by a very poor last third as it fell into an incoherent confusing mess, but maybe that was intentional as the character fell into that cycle himself.It was just very meh.

Paulette G (kr) wrote: I definitely laughed...However it was like all the best gags were bitten from "Friday". Even the main parts of the plot. Young unemployed urban youths sitting around trying to figure out how to get high, replace the weed and avoid the neighborhood bully. It was a British version of "Friday". ....But I laughed. K and Tyrone... HILARIOUS!

Javier E (it) wrote: Es una pelicula mala, ejecutada por buenas actrices que hacen todo lo posible por hacerla disfrutable y lo consiguen. Basada en una historia escrita por Rachel Dratch, protagonizada por ella y las excelentes Parker Posey y Amy Poehler. Tres "perdedoras" que regresan a su "spring break" porque a una de ellas le dan una asignacion especial en su trabajo. Pelicula hecha para que la pongas mientras haces otra actividad, funciona bien como fondo de conversacion. (Texto intencionalmente sin acentos).
Stuart K (ca) wrote: Directed by Susanne Bier (Open Hearts (2002) and Brothers (2004)), produced by Sam Mendes and written by Allan Loeb (21 (2008) and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010)), this is a moving and heavy going drama which owes a lot to Crash (2005). It has two powerful lead performances, but it does drag a bit in the middle and it could have done with being tighter. Audrey Burke (Halle Berry) was happily married to Brian (David Duchovny) for 11 years, and they had two children Harper (Alexis Llewellyn) and Dory (Micah Berry). However, Audrey gets tragic news from the police that Brian was killed trying to break up a fight, she's left distraught and grieving, unsure where to go with her life next. But she finds unexpected solace in heroin addict Jerry Sunborne (Benicio del Toro) who had been friends with Brian since childhood. Jerry moves in with Audrey and the kids, living in the garage, but he's finding it hard to stay off drugs. It's a sad and moving film, brilliantly filmed by Clint Eastwood's usual DP Tom Stern. It's got brilliant performances by Berry and del Toro, but Bier's decision to shoot it like a Dogme 95 film is a bit jarring, but it's got good intentions.

Anna B (ru) wrote: good French film, it's filmed in reverse with a look a relationship from end to begining. it's well acted but is a bit bland. I like foriegn language films but this not one of the best I've seen. but it's still a good film.

Robert B (gb) wrote: Mona Lisa (Neil Jordan, 1986)I watched Mona Lisa towards the end of December, after I had set the first draft of my Best I Saw list for 2013. When I was finished, I immediately went to that list and had to rearrange it. Neil Jordan took the British gangster film (and he was serious about making sure people knew it was a British gangster film, to the point of casting the British gangster film stalwart, Bob Hoskins, the Ray Winstone of the eighties), added some of that Neil Jordan magic that few people recognized that early in his career (Mona Lisa was Jordan's third feature), and came up with something that simultaneously revelled in being a British gangster film and something that was also totally new. I'm not sure there is such a thing as the definitive British gangster film, and if it does exist, I'm certain it happened well before 1986. Besides, Mona Lisa breaks far too many molds to be a definitive anything... and yet, somehow, it is, a quick, genre-bending, exceptionally intelligent piece of work.George (Hoskins) is a small-time mobster who has just been released from prison for a crime he didn't commit-he took a fall for his boss, Mortwell (Michael Caine), who's now avoiding him. He tries to pick up a bit of make-work until he gets back in good with his old mob, and Mortwell, through a proxy, throws him a bone as the driver for a high-class courtesan, Simone (The Serpent and the Rainbow's Cathy Tyson in her feature debut). The two of them have some rough edges to get through, but eventually end up bonding. Once that occurs, Simone asks George for a favor-she promised a fellow courtesan that she would look after her, and the two of them have lost touch over the years. Could George find her? And thus, the mobster becomes an amateur detective, leading to a sequence that's equal parts comedy and homage to Taxi Driver.See what I mean about genre-bending? That's a tough thing to do, and the more movie I watch the more I understand how tough it is, but Jordan handles everything he tries here with aplomb. Every decision here was made correctly, from casting to camera angles, with one arguable exception (it is obvious, given that a section of the film is a full-length rendition of the Genesis song "In Too Deep" over a montage of George doing his sleuthing, that the studio paid highly for the song and damned well meant to fully showcase it). It is perhaps not a perfect film, but if it is not, is is about as close to one as I have seen in quite a while; this is fabulous filmmaking, and it doesn't matter what genre you are most into, you are likely to find a bit of it here; this is a movie that by rights should have appeal to the widest swath of filmgoers of any I have seen in many years. **** 1/2
Allan C (es) wrote: Sterling Hayden is a tough Swede go goes out west to help father, only to find that's he's been killed by a land baron who wants the the local farmers' land. Joseph H. Lewis. brings his usual tough, no-nonsense style to the western that features a smart script by Dalton Trumbo, who at the time was not credited and sold the script through "front" Ben Perry. But to say the story of a Scandinavian whaler coming to his fathers farm to find it being terrorized by Sebastion Cabot as off-beat is a huge understatement. But it's really the off-beat nature and unusual aspects of the film that set it apart from the hundred of other westerns that told the same story. The film also has a pretty original showdown as well. A must see for fans of Sterling Hayden.

MF J (kr) wrote: A little film that is more worthy to watch for the cast (Banderas & Jolie) than for the actual story. It could have been much better but once again a stupid happy ending waste the whole film.
