I Was Here

I Was Here

An adaptation of a book by Sass Henno, I Was Here. First Arrest (Mina olin siin. 1. esimene arrest, 2005), one of the most important Estonian works of literature of recent years. Seventeen-year-old Rass is growing up in an Estonian suburb. In the absence of a solid home life his family becomes a group of youngsters who are verging on being thieves. Drugs are an inseparable part of their lives, and when Rass agrees to distribute them, he gets tangled up in the narcotics trade. Small amounts suddenly become two-kilo packages that the mafia, to the misfortune of all involved, has not been paid for, and is ready to collect on by force… This story of one boy’s adolescence unwinds retrospectively over a sheet of paper on which Rass records his memories while in prison. The camera intermediates these recollections in a nervous journalistic stylisation, often even duplicating the images, which increases the pace of the story, a true-to-life basis for which can be easily imagined.

Edgar P (ag) wrote: "You know, for a movie that began with the uncomfortable scene of a guy donating sperm in a sperm bank, what unfolds is actually a heartwarming story. I suspect the fact that it being in French will deter some audience members from the film. Personally, I saw it with subs and it wasn't hard to follow. It's well worth the effort to do a bit of reading."

Ben D (ag) wrote: Bruno Dumont's work has always been challenging. Some find his brand of cinematic tone dull, others discover the nuance and power his work can contain - it simply requires work, patience and understanding from his audience. Hadewijch is a perfect example: on the surface it seems a pretty ordinary story about a young novice nun who falls in with the wrong crowd, does something wrong, and tries to end her life. But there is a lot more going on here: a commentary upon the nature of faith, the power of belief, and the interaction between religions. A discussion on personality, and the way in which one can suppress ideas that are contradictory to the path you are following. There are also historial and literary threads if you know anything about the real life Hadewijch.At the heart of this film is a sterling performance from newcomer Julie Sokolowski, whose blank expression allows the audience to read many interpretations onto her, regards her psychology. Her neutrality allows many others to fall into 'love' with her - from the Islamic boys, particularly Yassine who desires her, to the criminal builder - and as she oscilates between grace and madness, they are drawn all the more to her. Dumont's film contains many subtle criticisms of religion, as well as praise, and these contradictory poles make the film all the more interesting and worthwhile to the viewer prepared to take a chance on it.

Robert C (us) wrote: I hate to give this a four but it doesn't quite make the grade for me personally. it is a good film don't get me wrong but the chemistry is,t quite there.

Bk A (au) wrote: Good overall story, went a bit on the long side. Would have liked to see more of his movies. I suppose I can look those up on youtube.

Dr N (au) wrote: If only Tim Burton could direct Pee-Wee forever, unfortunately Herman grows up a little and gets some nookie but hey even a man-child has a penis. I still love this movie but it lacks the off-the-wall antics of Big Adventure.

Duane B (us) wrote: Very funny film with a much younger Sophia Loren, This was their second film together but much better than the first.

Ami V (jp) wrote: I absolutely adore this movie. It's great to watch Katharine and Spencer fall in love in front of the camera. Their feelings for one another are palpable every time they are around each other. I want to be kissed in a darkened apartment in shadow, it's such a subtle sexy scene. It's much better than having something that would be right in your face like movies made today. My only complaint is the HORRIBLE ending. It doesn't go with the rest of the movie at all. I've read Katharine's autobiography and she felt the same way I believe. Other than that one issue, I enjoy this movie more and more each time I watch it.

Kristina K (kr) wrote: Unforgettable, satisfying, and affecting despite some sub-par acting and nauseating torture-porn scenes. I am still thinking about this movie today. It was beautiful in its ultimate plot and premise, though was very difficult to sit through some extremely violently graphic scenes.

Wish I could start an inn like this." (30 MINUTES IN)Brain 1: "I could watch Crosby and Astaire dance and banter all day." Brain 2: "Absolutely! I don't know why this isn't as perennial a classic as White Christmas." Brain 1: "I know, right?!" (45 MINUTES IN) Brain 1: "Um... is literally EVERY SINGLE PERSON in this scene in blackface?" Brain 2:"...Lets not talk about that." (AT THE END) Brain 2: "That movie is great! Not a thing about it should be changed!" Brain1: "Yeah! Wait...wasn't there something racist...." Brain 2: "I SAID DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT!"
