As a 63-year-ol teacher, perhaps it's the theme of a burnt out teacher that doesn't work for me. The device of having the teacher take his students on a tour through his past life is elegant, but somehow the whole is less than its parts. I'm going to read the book for a book group, so I hope I'll like it better.

(jp) wrote: Another striking family melodrama from the golden age of Japanese cinema by Mikio Naruse. Not one of his established classics, but still a cut above. Here Machiko Kyo plays a young woman who falls pregnant out of wedlock, with the father nowhere to be seen. The baby is stillborn and Kyo becomes a woman of low reputation. This has strong effects on her younger sister, a good girl who wishes to be similarly independent, and her older brother, a moralistic roughneck played strikingly out-of-character by Masayuki Mori. No real plot to speak of, but Naruse establishes the rural setting with beautiful cutaway shots, develops his characters efficiently, and lets them act.
(ag) wrote: Jacques Tourneur's postwar thriller scores because of his use of location shooting in bombed out Berlin and Frankfurt -- the rubble is an incredible anti-war statement in itself -- and some lovely exteriors in Paris. The plot is rather drab: a multinational assortment of travelers on a train to Berlin join together to stop a prominent peace advocate from being assassinated. Interesting to see Robert Ryan in a good-guy part but he loses some of his edge. Still, the historical value of the film (first Hollywood production to shoot in Germany after the war) adds some transcendency.
(nl) wrote: As with any piece by Charlie Chaplin, Monsieur Verdoux sounded like a hopeful piece of slapstick cinema.Defying my expectations, Monsieur Verdoux is a more narrative and character-driven film than conventional slapstick comedy. It does this instead of adhering to conventional slapstick, and it is the first feature film where Charlie Chaplin has no resemblance to his "tramp". The result is rather strange, an experience in lighthearted dark comedy where Charlie Chaplin spends more time talking than walking. The screenplay is built upon strange subject matter and a tone which is very strange, tying the humour of the film into a narrative which seems rather dramatic. There are brief bursts of drama along the way, and they serve as moments where the screenplay decides to be a political statement and Charlie Chaplin's criticism of the contemporary narrative society. As insightful as they are, they seem to come out of nowhere and feel misplaced within the narrative. In essence, Monsieur Verdoux does not have much of a story as there are so many different themes and characters being jammed into the one story that it ends up unfolding like a series of vignettes which are only strung together very loosely. The narrative structure is frustrating as the film cuts from one scene to another with the same basic ellipsis nearly every time. There is almost always the same footage of moving train wheels and the same basic soundbite which is a rather cheap transition. The film keeps on going at this and introducing all new characters until it finally reaches its climactic end, and the final note seems all too sudden as a result. There is no resolution to plot points regarding many characters in the film, it just focuses on pushing the main character forward and leaving everyone else behind. This is obviously not the best manner of storytelling, so it leaves me concluding that Monsieur Verdoux was ultimately an experimental film on behalf of Charlie Chaplin which evoked mixed results.Since the entire film is such a constant series of shifts in mood and subject matter, the genuine development of it all does not feel real. Monsieur Verdoux spends time building up the characters before it introduces Charlie Chaplin's character, but the relevance of these characters ends up being minimal as so many more are just thrown at the viewer as the story keeps going. It is never overwhelming, but that's simply because there is not a feeling that the anything aside from the protagonist of the story is worth keeping up with.Though Monsieur Verdoux is a comedy of sorts, I can't necessarily say that I laughed all that much. Clearly a film of its time, Monsiuer Verdoux is clearly a dark comedy which pushes the boundaries on what audiences can expect to find humour in, but by today's standards the material is fairly tame. And when I say tame, I mean to the point that the material leaves me wondering if I should be laughing or viewing it all as drama. Either way, the battle of time has left the genre of Monsieur Verdoux somewhat ambiguous.Because of that, looking beneath the surface is a lot easier and so trying to find something that sufficiently carries over to the modern day and still stands up so well is challenging. The one thing that is genuinely still interesting about the film is the strange nature of the titular character. The success of this is largely built on the performance of Charlie Chaplin, but Monsieur Verdoux himself is quite an oddball. He is such an unsuspecting serial killer, finding no slight problem in his actions that he cannot justify some way. Although the loose structure of the story puts him into a series of strange situations, the perspective on him which we are provided from witnessing it all can prove intriguing because the film centers around so many facets of him. His perspective on life, his relationships with the other characters and even his genuinely charming facade which hides his nature as a serial killer makes him a character packed with potential. And from there, what Charlie Chaplin is able to do with the character really makes the feature memorable.Charlie Chaplin's leading performance is the saviour of Monsieur Verdoux. I'm not certain what message he was trying to deliver as writer of Monsier Verdoux, but as director and actor he seems bent on promoting the idea that murder can be funny in the right context. His approach to the subject matter is so ridiculously light that it can prove strange, for better and for worse. But he justifies this with his role as the protagonist because he really brings the character to life. Portraying the titular Monsieur Verdoux, Charlie Chaplin packs the character with so much instinctive charm that he buries the idea of being a serial killer very far beneath the surface. Yet he has a slight touch of a suspicious nature about him, effectively making him more than a one-dimensional romanticized archetype. It is clearly an innovative role for him as it bears no resemblance to the iconic tramp he has played in his more notable works, resting an equal amount of importance on what he has to say as to what he has to actually do. As a result, he is effectively able to stir up sympathy and charm in the part of a serial killer which ties into the lighthearted mood of the film all very well. Charlie Chaplin has to act like never before in Monsieur Verdoux as his character is not buried beneath theatrics and technical production aspects, and it proves to be an unforgettably convincing role for the comedic legend.So Monsieur Verdoux is an odd blend of black comedy and social commentary with a poorly structured plot that is overpacked with subplots and characters yet short on genuine laughs, yet the charms of Charlie Chaplin's acting charisma carry the titular character through all the material with consistency and compelling appeal.

(mx) wrote: The Wulitou(Casual) way of acting, sweep across the whole China, is brought back to the scene by the Kung Fu Hustle. As a collection of Stephen's excellent movies, people believes Kung Fu Hustle is the best of the martial arts film in the recent years. This movie is directed, co-produced and co-written by Stephen Chow, who also stars in the lead role. In Shanghai during 1930s, Xing(acted by Stephen Chow) attempt to join in the Deadly Axe Gang with his friend Bone(acted by Zi Cong Lin). They have trouble with the Deadly Axe Gang, and fights involved anti-physical action between gang and heroes run through the whole movie. This movie, a reflection of Stephen's life, includes dream of being Bruce Lee, fear of facing the reality and the enthusiasm of kungfu. The Buddha's Palm to Chow ,a technique gained after overcoming all the setback, implies that he becomes strong enough to protect himself, his parents and love. The BGM, action of kungfu and Wulitou way make it valuable to watch. Folk, western classical music, old shanghai music recreate the night life of shanghai. The most important element of Stephen's movies , the Wulitou, is the promise of laugh which make you laugh whenever you watch his movies. I have watched Stephen's movie since 2003 and Kung Fu Hustle gives me a chance to watch my idol in the cinema.
