This is isn't much in the history of indian cinema, but in that short time, I have seen some significant changes in the films that probably reflect the cultural changes happening in the country. The number of films that make it to the UK and furthermore to mass market theatres is limited. Nevertheless, in this light comedy, I was surprised to see four women as the key characters of the film, obviously with a key male character as well. Even more surprising was, unheard of, as far as I know in mainstream indian cinema, several scenes where the couple kiss on the lips. That wasn't a short kiss and the action was repeated on several occasions. What a revolution on screen! Such a taboo act is finally making it on screen... The premise of the story is interesting: a handsome and successful con man defrauds women of their money until three victims decide to exact revenge through the same subterfuge. The second half of the story is more rom com and not as interesting. As always those long films allow for fairly good character study.

MF J (mx) wrote: Angelina Jolie directs her first film here & she must be proud of her first effort because it's a tough film. She chose a subject dear to her heart, a film for which we can feel she gave everything she had. It's not always perfect, the film has flows, but it's a great effort and the subject of the film is so strong & intense it will have quite an impact on the viewer. Far from anything Hollywood produces these days, having a complete and utterly Indy, low budget/Art house feeling, this film truly deserves a viewing.

Don S (mx) wrote: This disaster movie has little tension or action and lots of talking heads. The acting is passable, though the production value is on the lines of a television movie. This is a mediocre movie that is worth watching once.

Tanner B (jp) wrote: Man on Fire (2004) C-146m. ?? D: Tony Scott. Denzel Washington, Christopher Walken, Dakota Fanning, Mickey Rourke. Annoyingly indulgent action film, set in Mexico city: Bodyguard Washington is hired to protect a young girl from professional kidnappers, but when he fails, he swears violent revenge on all criminals associated to her supposed death. Absorbing first half, canceled out by grisly second. Washington is a great actor, but he's given little here (and making him an alcoholic isn't a terribly original idea either). Also, Scott's indulgence in the editing room (complete with fast cuts, grainy hand-held shots in the middle of scenes for no reason at all), though mostly confined to the second half, become deadening to watch. The opening credits are almost unwatchable.

Karl S (fr) wrote: Astonishing that Bardem (uncle of Javier) made this film in Franco's Spain (although not so astonishing that only the Cannes award convinced Franco to free Bardem from prison).Reviews below complain about the melodrama, as they might have complained about its retrograde roles of women. But if the reviews bore in mind that Bardem is a communist artist working in the 50s AND that this is not so much influenced by film noir as by Orson Welles (really: follow the camera and the astonishing jump cuts) they would have realized that Bardem is constantly commenting both on film and on the exemplarity of any given narrative. Note, for example, how much the characters comment on narrative itself (one says "if this were a novel, I'd..."). In sum, this is only deceptively a realist film, but it's at heart Brechtian.
