Sudden Rain torrent reviews
(jp) wrote: A CG-style animated film about a hero that only comic fans are going to have heard of. Nice characterisation and grand set pieces make for a sleeper hit. Recommended for all super-hero fans.
(kr) wrote: Great documentary that leaves you wanting more. Too bad so much of the footage used was of such poor quality though.
(us) wrote: The movie is good in terms of action and screenplay but it lacks good script and the catch which will make audiences to return back to theatres to watch their beloved Rohit, Jaadu and krrish. I was not so impressed with the movie but its one time watch if you like seeing "made in India" action sequences and Hrithik Roshan.

(kr) wrote: Harriett Andersson really shows her range as an actress in this film from Director Ingmar Bergman, playing a young woman recently released from a mental institution, and suffering from schizophrenia. She seems so natural and effortless as she toys with her younger brother (Lars Passgrd), poignant as she rues what she's done to her husband (Max von Sydow), and explosive in front of him and her father (Gunnar Bjrnstrand) as she breaks down. It's a fantastic performance. Those are the only four actors in the film, which is stark and minimalistic, set on an island vacation home and taking place over a single day. It's a quiet, thoughtful movie, where each scene and each shot seem like a work of art. There are frustrations all around: Bjrnstrand is an author who struggles to the point of despair with writing something that is good artistically, and also with ensuring he spends enough time with his family, unfortunately erring too much on the side of his writing instead. Passgrd feels this acutely, yearning for his father's attention, and also having difficulty with his emerging sexual desires. von Sydow has the frustration of losing his partner, as her sanity and her affection have faded, and he knows he is powerless to help against a condition which will never improve. He continues to love her anyway. The main axes of the movie have Andersson (schizophrenic) inflicting pain on von Sydow (her husband); Bjrnstrand (callous and selfish) inflicting pain on Passgrd (his son). It's telling that Andersson has her breaks with reality in a dilapidated old room, and then later in a ship that's wrecked along the shore as water pours in. There is a sexual element here: she denies her husband, and later suggests that this is because she must choose "one side or the other", seeming to have opted for the crazy and unreal side of her psyche, having some sort of sexual encounter in her mind in the room before he wakes up, later seducing her brother, and finally sees God as a spider intent on penetrating her. Amidst of their frustrations, the characters struggle to find meaning. As with other Bergman movies, the deeper questions about life and God are present. It's amazing that he packs this all into such a tight and lean story, with four characters over a single day. He makes use of reflections and light more effectively than anyone - watch for this throughout the movie. The opening and ending scenes are especially meaningful in light of its themes - inner reflection on one's demons, what the people around us mean to us, and whether God exists. There is no easy answer to that last one. von Sydow is cynical and Andersson has a sort of mystical faith until it's disillusioned by the spider imagery. In a beautiful scene at the end, however, Bjrnstrand says it may exist in the love people show for one another. At the very least, he knows that love exists, and that it helps us in our difficult, meaningless lives. Through all the darkness and difficulty, and though we cannot perceive meaning, looking as we do, "through the glass darkly", there is hope in love. Great film.
