Mary and Martha

Mary and Martha

Wealthy American housewife Mary Morgan takes her bullied son George out of school for home education,including a trip to Southern Africa. Whilst in Mozambique George is bitten by a mosquito which crawls through a hole in his net and dies of malaria. After his funeral at home Mary feels a compulsion to return to Africa where she meets English woman Martha O'Connell,whose 24 year old son Ben, a teacher with voluntary service overseas,has also died of malaria. Ben gave his net to one of his pupils,believing adults cannot catch malaria. The two women are shocked to see the high death rate caused by the disease and,whilst Martha stays in Africa as a voluntary helper,Mary petitions the American government to change things. Martha turns up at Mary's house unannounced and,helped by Mary's ex-diplomat father,they address a senate committee on health spending,persuading them to do more to combat malaria. They meet with some success though a coda states that much more can be done.

Andrew B (ag) wrote: Not that good. PSH is great, but overall it's not worth the watch.

Russell S (kr) wrote: A decent, inventive, and sometimes silly action / heist movie that by the end will have you feeling as if you too have been out in the rain. Never quite jumps the shark but occasionally comes close. Not exactly a classic but it's a lot of fun and very well paced.

Tasos L (it) wrote: A decent slasher with a nice background music in its highlights..!

Aj V (de) wrote: A hilarious and cute kids movie that the whole family can enjoy. I loved this as a kid.

Petros T (au) wrote: "48 Hrs." delivers, '80s action comedy-style. Two protagonists that don't get on well, lightweight atmosphere, very good chases, complete with female nudity and outdated phraseology concerning black people. It's nothing riveting but the small duration, the tense final act, the likable partnership of Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy and the sure hand of director Walter Hill ensure "48 Hrs." is a pleasant affair.

Adam Z (it) wrote: Curtiz was probably only concerned with putting on an exciting show- which he does- but there are other things here that should be admired. Errol Flynn is a heroic Jeb Stuart, Ronald Reagan fits in comfortably as Custer (there is no indication that he will eventually become the Indian-slaughtering general that he eventually became) and Olivia de Havilland is gorgeous as always, even though her role is pretty thankless. Some stunning sequences, most notably the raid on Harper's Ferry at the finale, make for good entertainment. But what distinguishes this movie from any other is Raymond Massey's portrayal of John Brown. Even though the filmmakers clearly make him out to be the antagonist, they do try to humanize him and defend his intentions, even though they condemn his actions. What's still bothering me is the part where the female slave tells Errol Flynn that she doesn't want freedom if John Brown is going to keep killing for it. To make a black woman say that in a movie seems wrong.

Guillaume H (fr) wrote: A reshoot of ''Dominion'' commissionned by stupid producers, this one is technically more busy than the original, so more interesting for some, with good ideas, but its also often stupid, with writing and camerawork reeking of desperation to please. The most traveled road have been prioritized; jump scares, ominous sound design, random non sequiturs just to drop a horror tidbit, all blights that Dominion was free from. They switched the interesting lead actress, got rid of her complexity and replaced her with a langorous beauty who has to be the possessed so she can be shown sweating in a tight nightie. A central element to this prequel story is the possession of the african boy refered to in the Heretic; in this movie he is replaced by this blond bombshell. I see what the producers were aiming for but for once the public spoke and reminded them that dumbing things down is not always a good thing, so it makes a typical horror movie that gives some jumps but leaves no lasting impact. One last ''detail''; this one manages to be offensively racist and sexist, two things that Dominion actively opposed by its far more graceful characterisations. I give this 2.5 but what i mean is 2.7
