Walter M (nl) wrote: Since music was first invented, young people have wanted to put on a show. That's no less true in the spirited movie, "No One Knows about Persian Cats," which is based on real incidents. The only problem for the protagonists is that they live in Tehran where such happenings are seriously frowned upon and the musicians face jail time if caught. So, Negar(Negar Shaghaghi) and Askhan(Ashkan Koshanejad) want out, preferably to London but Ashkan is lacking a passport. So, they go to Nader(Hamed Behdad), a fixer/bootlegger who not only finds them a guitarist but also a counterfeiter. Now, they could also use another woman singer since the rules forbid Negar from being the only female singer in a band for a concert they are planning to put on to raise the necessary funds. They are not the only musicians affected as the movie tours the Tehran music scene which is mostly literally underground, as the musicians find creative places to practice(But, oh, those poor cows!), with music that ranges from traditional to heavy metal to rap. While I ordinarily find music videos in films to be beyond cliche, here it works well.(The highlight here is the one for a rap song called "A City Where Everything You See Entices You.") Even though "No One Knows about Persian Cats" can be a little pedantic and overstated at times in railing against the injustices of the system(That probably explains the scene with the dog.), it still has plenty to say about the post-revolutionary generation. They are simply trying to express themselves, not rebelling necessarily(although Nader has a photo of Marlon Brando from "The Wild One" on his wall), with ironically western influences, and who as the film states, the country is in danger of losing.

Art S (ag) wrote: Antonioni's 1950's films adhere more consistently to narrative conventions than his films of the 60's; however, Le Amiche's plot still tends to wander. We are led to identify with Clelia, who is visiting Turin from Rome in order to set up a dressmaker's salon. In Turin, she falls in with a group of women after discovering a failed suicide in an adjacent hotel room. Antonioni then demonstrates, through a variety of social situations, just how bitchy and alienating this social circle is to those within it. Even the woman who attempted suicide readily betrays one of her friends by having an affair with her husband (later to appear as Sandro in L'Avventura, a film that builds on and extends the themes here). But the husband is too self-concerned to be able to see how his actions will affect either of the women (wife and friend) with whom he becomes involved. Antonioni's attention to the various characters fluctuates but none gain too much depth, apart from Clelia who seems sympathetic but ultimately ambivalent toward these new "friends" in Turin. As he would continue to do throughout his career, Antonioni depicts the idle rich as pursuing lives of meaninglessness and cruelty; as a film, Le Amiche represents one more step on the road toward the exciting levels of abstraction he would achieve later on to convey this theme.

Jesse W (us) wrote: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets marks the second chapter of the Harry Potter saga. Though it isn't quite as inventive or creative as it's predecessor or most of it's successors, that doesn't stop it from being mysterious and magical all the same.This film, just like many others in the franchise, revolves around a mystery centered on a specific character. However, as the mystery unfolds, more questions and mysteries arrive, making this film a trail of questions, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. All the questions are what keep the viewer hooked throughout the duration of the movie. What makes it even better is that the viewers have no more knowledge than Harry does for the whole thing. My only real complaints with the film revolve around the magic. Aside from a couple new monsters, there isn't as much new content in terms of magic in this movie as there is in the other installments. However, what is introduced is rather neat.Overall, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets isn't quite as inventive as the other chapters, but is still a magical, mysterious experience nonetheless.
