Once there they miss their husbands and invite them to join them. The story itself is much too slow and perhaps too simplistic, however the camera's eye on the beautiful Italian sea-side makes up for much. Fair movie at best but filmed beautifully.

Joanna B (nl) wrote: During the early 1930's the world plummeted into the great depression, with only the promise of escapism rarely coming to town in the form of travelling circuses. Seemingly a magical place of wonder and spectacle, pull back the curtain and a darker more sinister reality becomes evident. The underlying truth of animals were bent to man's wills through extreme force, insubordinate sacked workers routinely thrown from moving trains and the fear of bankruptcy was always just under the faade surface. Capturing the beauty rather than the known travesty of this fascinating era is Sara Gruen's 2006, Water for Elephants. Brought to life in a stronger more streamlined screenplay, director Francis Lawrence grasps the grandeur of stage with both hands and deliver's a slow boiling old-fashioned story with minimal Hollywood sop and saccharine. Jacob Jankowski (Robert Pattinson) is an earnest and sensitive young man just about to sit his final exams in veterinary science at Cornell University when he receives news that his immigrant parents have died in a tragic car accident. Penniless and aimless, Jacob decides to follow rumours of employment and the railway tracks into a cities. However, in a surprisingly convenient leap of luck, Jacob jumps a random train that's home to the fabulous Benzini Brothers Circus. Starting off small in the big-top arena by shovelling poop and sweeping cages, Jacob quickly rises through the ranks by talking his way to the top as a practising vet and impressing struggling circus owner August Rosenbluth (Christoph Waltz).Jacob's assent coinciding with the acquisition of a new star attraction, a stubborn 53 year old "bull" elephant named Rosie, brings distension as he must work closely with the beautifully intoxicating lead starlet Marlena (Reece Witherspoon) August's wife in coaxing Rosie into the spotlight.Increasingly unstable and impatient August becomes obsessed with trumping the Ringling Brothers circus, ticket sales and the quick progression of Rosie's act. Brutally punishing her for her lack of performance, Augusts' iron fist-like rule drives a wedge between Marlena and himself, allowing the suspicion of an alluded relationship between the trusted vet and his wife to overwhelm. Although presented as "one of the worst circus disasters in history" the only thing 'worst' about this is the off-kilter casting of the uncomfortable and unconvincing ex-prositute turned headliner Reece Witherspoon opposite moody money shot heartthrob attempting adult roles, Robert Pattinson aka R-Pattz. Anchoring the whole production is the edgy and exemplary Christoph Waltz; personifying the glitz and glamour of subject whilst once again embracing the sadistic love-to-loathe characterisations of which he has down to a fine art. Sadly, R-Pattz dullness is amplified not only by the misfortune of having to share so much screen time with his upstaging Oscar winning human co-stars; who share a wonderful and painful chemistry when onscreen together (the only time we see Witherspoon in her element), but an elephant co-star that understands polish and can put away enough whisky to make a sailor blush.Another misstep is the exclusion of Gruen's great secondary characters, pushed aside for the sleeker story viewers miss out on some of the more rich and colourful carnies and the warm humour they brought to the book. The Verdict: Suffering from is bland and lacklustre conclusion, Water for Elephants gives the illusion of complete package but fails to fully deliver, it is nice however to watch Waltz wipe the floor with R-Pattz, figuratively and literally.
