However, in the course of her ostensibly married life, she learns the true meaning of marriage and the deep significance of being an Indian wife, much to the dismay of her aunt, who, in adherence to her wayward beliefs, has been trying to instill every kind of anti-male sentiment in her niece's ingenuous mind.

(ru) wrote: Denise and Danny just got married, and are off on their honeymoon and very happy. They have a pack, that they will never part. While relaxing on a beach, Danny gets attacked from a guy walking out of the water who pukes blood all over his face. Rushed to the hospital, Danny dies and Denise is crushed to say the least. But after ten minutes, he wakes up and seems fine, with doctors offering no explanation besides a miracle. They leave the hospital and continue their honeymoon with plans to go to Portugal. But things seem a little off base with Danny, especially when Denise comes home and finds her husband eating the local jogger in their bathtub. And I mean blood and gore galore. Things get worse and worse for Danny but Denise hangs with him, even though his appetite for human flesh is growing stronger. Victim after victim are attacked and eaten by Danny as he resembles a zombie more and more. Now you might think this a horror/gore comedy or black comedy, but it is far from that. Everything to a tee is played very very seriously, and even though some scenes might bring a smile, it's because of what you seeing, not because it is intended to get a laugh. This is one fantastic unique zombie thriller, which I love it to death. The actors playing the doomed couple are outstanding, and this is going to be one of my favorite zombie movies of all time. Although it was a DTV for the most part, it looks outstanding and even with a low budget, the whole movie and effects are top notch all the way. The story is as much an intense love story as anything, and the zombie angle just throws a wrench into the staying with your loved one, even if they are a zombie. I strongly suggest you seek this outstanding movie out, I doubt you will be disappointed in anyway. It is now one of my favorite zombie movies of all time as I said, and I can't wait to watch it again with the commentary. It totally knocked my socks off, to say the least.

(es) wrote: brilliant. brilliant. brilliant. i am speechless. so stunning, breathtaking, engaging and chilling. so visually and narratively poetic, this short collection of still images conveys so much with so little. a perfect paradigm for any filmmaker who wants to discover the true essence of filmmaking.

(jp) wrote: I think this story would be better fitted for a 2 hour drama, but the drama within this musical is still good and holds up the film nicely. I wasn't sure if I would be bothered by the fact that it is a musical, but honestly there wasn't as much music as I expected anyway, and I only thought one or two songs were unnecessary.In my opinion this film doesn't seem overly long even though it is a 2 hour 45 minute film. In fact, the best scenes in the film are the long, dramatic debates which the characters have with each other inside the Congress building. It keeps the film very enticing and questions ethics instead of just explaining how the Declaration came to be.The character of Benjamin Franklin is surprisingly very funny in this film. At one point, he even seems to make a phallic reference which I never thought would be part of the content for this film - but then again Shakespeare had hidden sexual jokes in his plays as well, and that was centuries before movies were made.One part of a scene that could have been omitted from the film in my opinion is when one of the colonies wants Jefferson's mention of slavery removed from the declaration. Since this movie was about America declaring their independence, this didn't seem to be a crucial part of the story, but this movie was highly about ethics so I suppose the filmmakers thought it was in the film's best interest to include this short debate.This is one of my new favorite "patriotic" movies, and I'll probably be watching it again around this time next year along with Yankee Doodle Dandy.

(ag) wrote: As Frequency contains Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel who are two immensely talented actors, I really had to see it.Frequency contains a very high- concept plot with a lot of serious potential to it, so it requires the importance of great execution. Thanks to the direction of Gregory Hoblitt, it capitalises on most of its potential and becomes a compelling feature.Frequency's story is actually one of the most original I have seen in a very long time, because it deals with a lot of touching drama and a science fiction premise combined together into an interesting time shift thriller. And it really succeeds. See, I assumed that the key nature of the story would be about Francis Patrick Sullivan saving his father's life through a timeshifting ham radio and that's it, but that proves to be just one of the many story dynamics in Frequency which soon turns into an even more intense and gripping science fiction thriller than I ever could have expected. Toby Emmerich proves what his real writing talent is all about in Frequency, because his story goes through so much as it attempts to connect the two timelines into one through changing the past for the sake of a superior future. His screenplay is also clever because it gives the cast plenty of dialogue to engage with and a lot of situations I honestly got so sucked into the story that I completely forgot about the fact that the story doesn't clarify that well just how the ham radio was able to communicate 30 years into the past, but rather suggesting that it was caused by caused by unusual aurora borealis, which was later clarified on Wikipedia as being highly localized electro-temporal spatial effect. It is easy to notice some flaws in the internal logic of Frequency, but there is never really enough to make the film bad because it is such a compelling story, combining such an interesting science fiction thriller concept with crime drama and the nature of a complicated father-son relationship. There are a lot of reasons to watch Frequency, so fans of science fiction films, for fans of thrillers such as The Sixth Sense or for people willing to watch a compelling and meaningful father son story. It succeeds in every area, and it proves that director Gregory Hoblitt has improved on his skill of directing a thrilling film since his somewhat dull Primal Fear and his high-concept but generic thriller Fallen. Frequency is a massive step up for him, and thanks to him it takes maximum advantage of everything this time around without falling into predictable territory once. The visual effects in the film are used greatly without being excessive in quantity and the cinematography and editing is all good combined with a strongly intense musical score which helps to keep the atmosphere of the film rich with thrills constantly. There are a lot of thrills in Frequency, and it just builds up better and bigger without going excessive until it hits an undeniably perfect climax which ends on such a flawless note that it is bound to leave many audiences smiling.And much of the importance in the story of Frequency falls on its characters and therefore on what the cast can do with them. And luckily enough, Frequency is perfectly cast.Jim Caviezel is faced with the challenge of being in a role where the majority of his performance is reliant on chemistry with someone that he isn't engaging with directly. He has to share a chemistry with someone through a ham radio and not directly. But through the undeniably incredible skill he has as an actor, it feels more than genuinely like he is truly the son of Dennis Quaid. I mean the entire concept of reconnecting with your own father after he has been dead for 30 years is such powerful emotional drama, and Jim Caviezel makes it feel more than genuine. Jim Caviezel's name should be worldwide recognised, because he puts so much effort into making Frequency a compelling drama and making his character so lively that I'm certain that if he finds the right film role one day, he willl surely score an Academy Award nomination. His performance is just incredible and arguably one of the best of his career, close to his portrayal of Jesus Christ in the controversial but excellent 2004 feature The Passion of the Christ. Jim Caviezel is just excellent in Frequency, and his emotional line delivery and facial gestures make him the finest cast member of the film, even better than the immensely talented Dennis Quaid alongside him.But there is no denying that Dennis Quaid is excellent in Frequency. His fierce talent as an actor which has been seen in so many of his other films is not the slightest bit lesser in Frequency. The intense stare the emits from his eyes is one of his most powerful physical elements, and he syncs it with his bodily movements so every part of him feels intense. And the strength in his line delivery and chemistry with Jim Caviezel is just excellent. Similarly, he makes it feel a lot more realistic, and what goes on between him and Jim Caviezel is played out to the maximum effect so that the father-son drama of the story is truly compelling and makes a strong impact. He is great in Frequency.Shawn Doyle's efforts as the manipulative serial killer Jack Shepard is great as well, and Andre Braugher is a strong supporting actor as well.Lastly, Elizabeth Mitchell makes a great presence as the mother and wife of the two protagonists because of the friendly chemistry she shares with everybody and the impact her character makes on each character in small ways. Elizabeth Mitchell is a very friendly and likeable actress, and takes Frequency as a chance to prove that.So really, Frequency is an unexpectedly powerful and entertaining science fiction thriller with great directing and excellent acting in every corner of the film.

Le film est malheureusement un peu long et manque de gags vraiment drles et originaux pour dcoller. C'est bien dommage car le message du film est plutt intressant tout en tant assez chaleureux. Mais The Incredible Burt Wonderstone ne restera pas dans les annales.
