Joe Cocker: Mad Dog with Soul torrent reviews
(fr) wrote: During World War II, when the German occupation was at the brink of defeat in Paris, General Dietrich von Choltitz, who was acting as Paris's governor, was under orders to destroy the city's famous landmarks, and flood the city's inhabitants with the waters of the River Seine before Paris could fall into the Allies' hands. Aware of these plans, Swedish diplomat Raoul Nordling secretly negotiated with Choltitz to prevent that catastrophe from happening. This film is the story of those secret negotiations. Most of the film is a recreation of the nerve-racking dialogue between the two main players, who give a compelling portrayal of their roles as the persuader and the persuaded. At just over 1.5 hours, this film is a quick and engrossing watch. Highly recommended, especially if you like history and stories from World War II.

(kr) wrote: a painful punch in the stomach and a beautiful moment of cinema. gritty, beautiful, and blessed with a fantastic cast. oh, and the soundtrack rocks since Manu chao scored the most of it. in the same genre, pair it with "lilja 4 ever" from Lukas Moodysson for one of your saddest (and greatest) double features of all time!

(nl) wrote: A film about sex with boring sex scenes? Yeah, that's exactly what it is. Even worse is the fact that they attempted to make it an interesting study about successful twentysomethings and their relationships. This is definitely one of the worst films ever made.
(us) wrote: Elegantly and subtly shot. The director is always good at creating a dark atmosphere. It is rather slow and you need to be patient because there is no clear storyline. It focuses on capturing their decadent lives and the interwoven relationships. Nice music.

This movie is one of my favourite comedies and my favourite American Pie sequel. The story starts off with one of the most unusual marriage proposals ever and you can already tell what kind of a movie this will be. So, Jim and Michelle are going to get married and they want the perfect marriage, so no Stifler. Stifler does eventually find out about the wedding and helps Jim in any way just so he can have sex with Michelle's sister. This leads to some truly laugh out loud moments. Stifler is the star of this sequel! Every scene where he acts like a gentleman to girls/older people is pure gold. And since Finch also wants to be with Michelle's sister, he tries to act more like Stifler in order to be with her. Finch-meister and Steven. Ah, that was amazing. I don't think I have to mention how awesome the soundtrack was, right? The acting is great! The characters are great! Everything about this sequel is great! All in all, a more than satisfying sequel with excellent humor, great, likeable, characters and it's just fun! I would recommend seeing this even if you haven't seen the movies before.
