This examination of a famous scandal from the 1970s explores the relationship between Barbara Baekeland and her only son, Antony.

(de) wrote: With a cast and a premise like this, there is huge potential, but unfortunately the characters and the script are kind of dull. It feels like it's trying to be quirky like Juno or Little Miss Sunshine, but it never takes it to the next level.
(gb) wrote: Amusing and entertaining but surprised at how highly this was rated.
(ca) wrote: Most importantly it made one laugh and so that is a great start. Filming is a little too perfect on the artificial side, yet comes across well in this ditsy arena. Script keeps going with a fine story line barfing at the day time shows making for laughter that is free flowing. Actors do a grand job giving a cynical and believable look at thee insides of cruelty for pay. Nibbles: Strong tea and Nice cookies.

(nl) wrote: Visually striking. I like the first part of the film, about the winery and all. Then it takes this weird turn and becomes a totally different movie. Not a bad movie, mind you, but different. It's pretty good, I guess. I'm feeling indecisive about it.
(us) wrote: The simple story of a brother and sister who escape their oppressive home in Guatemala and make their way North to Mexico and eventually past the border into the US, and learn to live in America illegally and overcome their cultural differences. The scene in the sewage tunnel with the rats is horrific. I think the movie is pretty good on the whole, even if it isn't terribly complex.
(fr) wrote: Alternate title being "Shaolin Prince", this movie is about two royal brothers who are separated and adopted by different parties after a bloody coup. One pretends to be a scholar with a governor, the other is raised by Shaolin rejects. The movie is pretty good, but the final fight is rather lacking with a ridiculous shape shifting palanquin. The acting and plot is good, but its the finale that lacks finesse.
(gb) wrote: It's a bit uneven, but when it works this is a very strong late Western. It's one of Steve McQueen's final films and he plays the role of the outmoded and belated cowboy very well. The ending is particularly brutal.
(au) wrote: Manhattan is a self-referential, self-deprecating if not an autobiographical work of Woody Allen. Focusing to a group of problematic and complex people in a sentimental urban setting, Manhattan offers more complexity and sentimentality than Annie Hall, although both of them were built on really similar blueprints. It is also brutally honest with abundant numbers of Freudian jokes and psychoanalysis.

(es) wrote: Worth while but off-beat film has strong performances but struggles to figure out it's pacing. Stick with it though.
