Henrik Ibsen's enduring drama about a Nordic femme fatale - a neurotic, controlling, strong-willed woman who is nonetheless alluring to the males in her town. She is a solitary woman in a society held together by kinship and class. If she had had more brains she would have thought her way out of it; if she had had more courage she would have bolted long ago with Lovborg, the only true creative force in the vicinity whose manuscript she burns in the stove as if she were aborting their unconceived child.

Poor acting, a terrible script with high school play dialog and everyone from soldiers to fans to players to cheerleaders to team owners in total stereotypes. Don't waste 2 hours of your life on this piece of junk.

(fr) wrote: A beautiful remake of Sidney Lumett??s one of the greatest masterpieces of all time 12 ANGRY MEN (1957). Set in a gym of a High School where some Russian "12 angry men" are struggling to decide the fate of a Chechen teenager who is charged with the murder of his Russian stepfather, the Army Officer, the Veteran of Chechen war who had adopted the boy after his mother and father were both killed. Instead of being confined to a common jury room, they have sent off to that old high school gymnasium next to the courthouse, one of them even said at one point whose condition reflects Russia??s crumbling infrastructure.Like this way though it??s a remake of an American movie, apart from some basic similar elements the plot is very rooted in Russian reality. It tried to explore at its best the system of the current Russian society from the inside as well as the meaning of personal involvement in the life of a community; some reflects society's ills or even nation's fears.The varied & brilliant cast helped the script to show its magic. In addition there are flashbacks of the accused Chechen teenager??s harsh childhood in war-torn Chechnya and more drama & twists at the end which I didn??t expect at all.Anyway, overall it??s a pretty decent homage to the Original. I think it will be a delightful watch for any great fan here of the original.

(us) wrote: WHAT I LIKED: As a general rule, I think Richard Curtis is hugely under-appreciated as a film-maker, and nowhere is that more the case than where his 'About Time' is concerned. Now of course his overall reception is largely down to genre-prejudice, but for me this film is the best example of how he always balances everything so well, and in doing so creates a genuinely excellent movie that still largely gets critically forgotten.For a start, About Time strikes the perfect balance between taking itself seriously, and having a bit of fun, and that exists both in the story itself, as well as in the tone of the film where different types of humour are used at all the right times to relieve from all the emotion. It is a silly plot after all, but it's yet again one that you can take a bit seriously because its characterisation and relationships are so well-built by Curtis and his amazing cast. The investment you have is nurtured too, as there's just the right levels of both soppy happy endings and difficult twists and turns to keep you there without swallowing you up or spitting you out. It's also paced rather elequently (which agreeably is something that can't be said for all of Curtis' ventures) and has some lovely themes that are yet again treated with the right level of exploritative seriousness and light-hearted whit too. Basically, About Time works because it's a proper balance between excellent 'rom' and brilliant 'com,' but putting those words together sadly puts some off before they even try it.WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Maybe the silly (and often over-convenient) plot lose some sense of the relateable realities of love, life, and death, but if you take it as not-so-seriously as the movie does, you wont really mind at all.VERDICT: It's About Time people gave Richard Curtis a big pat on the back. He delivers his most balanced film here, and I really love it.

Clint Eastwood passa dal western ad un altro genere che ci somiglia molto come trama ma con un'ambientazione pi moderna.
