Disappointed by the marriage of her lover to a woman he does not love, prostitute Harumi drifts from the city to a remote Japanese outpost in Manchuria to work in a "comfort house," or brothel, during the Sino-Japanese war. The commanding adjutant there takes an immediate liking to the new girl, but she is at first fascinated, and comes to love, Mikami, the officer's aide. At first he is haughty and indifferent to the girl, which enrages her, but they are drawn together eventually. Abused and manipulated by the adjutant, she grows to hate the officer and seeks solace in Mikami's arms. They carry on a clandestine affair, which is a dangerous breach of code for both of them.

Eric R (fr) wrote: A middle class British family's fractured family dynamic begins to show itself while on holiday in the Isles of Scilly. Edward, the son of the family, is contemplating going on a mission to aid in sexual education but he is having mixed feelings about leaving his girlfriend, Chloe behind, resulting in mixed feelings. The family is very polite but this underlying tension begins to occur particularly between the siblings of the house, Cynthia and Edward. The father of these two is not present, only seen through phone conversations and this leads to some explosive tension between the parents of the household as well as the siblings. The visual compositions of the film really do a great job at showing this detachment that the family appears to have between one and other. One of the most interesting aspects about this family drama is the friend of the family, who is also on holiday in Scilly. It is never abundantly stated out right but it is rather obvious that he serves as a father figure to Edward. The film is a solid drama about the underlying family dynamics which exist in most family units. A good film, but I believe I have seen some better films which deal with similar issues.

Difficile de se relever aprs un tel choc. Or, l'Immortel ne tente jamais de se relever et se complat dans la fange des clichs du genre, sans pour autant profiter pleinement du cadre de la ville de Marseille. Heureusement, Richard Berry peut s'appuyer sur l'immense Jean Reno, qui pourrait lire l'annuaire et tre passionnant. C'est bien lui qui sauve le film, tant les autres seconds rles sont mauvais (Marina Fos tout particulirement). L'Immortel ne vaut presque rien et c'est dommage tant la vraie histoire est intressante.

Siri H (de) wrote: Forgive and Forget is TV drama film from back in the days when homosexuality and coming out was still A BIG DEAL in the public consciousness, and the media did their best to reflect this. However, as a vehicle for spreading the messages "it's OK to be gay" and "better out then in", Forgive and Forget feels strangely... bland... There's nothing wrong about it per se, but there's nothing new about it, either; we've seen it all before, and in it's effort not to cause offence, it fails to have that little something that could have made it more memorable.What's more, Steve John Shepherd performance as David is upstaged by John Simm's far better portrayal of Theo, making David almost a non-entity in this film, even though he is the main character and the one this conflict evolves around. It's Theo that gets our sympathy, not David, and that's just a bit odd and unbalanced.

Holly C (fr) wrote: American Heart is a real life drama more so then film about the ups and downs of a father and son relationship. One thing this film does well, is show the strains of being a Dad and the inevitable fact that you have to let your own dreams slide in order to help your children. "Jack (Jeff Bridges) has just recently been let out of prison, and his son Nick (Edward Furlong) tries to re-kindle a relationship with him. Jack can barely look after himself, let alone his fourteen year old son - and after things go wrong, Nick begins to start a 'family' with a group of runaway kids/hustlers." The film starts off extremely slow, and sometimes the shots can seem to last forever. The dialogue seems to take ages to kick in, and only during the middle of the movie does what they're saying start to have an effect on you. However, towards the end, it gets a hundred times better. Everything makes sense and flows beautifully. Also, emotions really run high at the end as so many shocking and devestating things happen that really make this film a drama more then a movie. This film is probably worth about four stars because of the obvious effort behind it all. The overall story is really powerful, but put onto screen it doesn't have the 'punch' that maybe it should have. As i mentioned before Jeff Bridges may be the American film actor with the most unseen great perfomances. He really is brilliant in this film, and portrays the 'unworthy father role' brilliantly. Edward Furlong is also very good considering his age. He has the perfect eyes for this role as he always looks very troubled - Nicks signiture feature. This is a very powerful film that will leave you with mixed emotions. Brilliant.

Edward K (br) wrote: From Emile Zola's novel "L'Assommoir" which essentially means to be hammered (drunk). Rene Clement directs the realistic but tragic debasement of a working class woman at the hands of two men and the rejection by a third. The story clearly a show of how slender is the thread holding us back from catastrophe. Excellent B&W cinematography.
Michael H (ca) wrote: Marital turmoil, murder, and deception - and a happy couple who are swept into the whirlpool of intrigue. Gorgeous use of Niagara Falls. Nice work contrasting the focal couples, building and releasing tension, and repeatedly drawing the point of view couple (Peters/Showalter) back into the problems, turbulence, and danger of the Monroe/Cotton relationship. Still, not first rate. But worth a look.

Jeff Cooper, the lead guy, has the worst haircut I've ever seen, but looks great in a loincloth. And I learned the best zen koan I've ever heard: It's hard to kill a horse with a flute.
