Farce, spy spoof, and adventure. Swarthy thieves ignore jewels to steal an Amazon figurine from the Museum of Man in Paris' Trocadero Palace and kidnap the world's authority on the lost Maltec civilization. Cut to Agnes, the daughter of a murdered man who possessed one of two other such figurines. Moments after her sweetheart, Adrien, an Army private with a week's leave, arrives in Paris to see her, Agnes too is kidnapped, drugged, and loaded on a plane to Rio. Adrien is in hot pursuit, and before he can rescue her (with the help of a shoeshine boy), foil the murderous thieves, and solve the riddle of the Maltecs, he must traverse Rio, Brasília, and the Amazon heartland... all before the end of his week's leave.

A bit clich (C), and sometimes oddly childish, but the music and serious moments give it an otherearthly mystical feel that will leave most family friendly viewers satisfied.

Brian B (ag) wrote: A terrible rip-off of Birds. The movie was rather yawn-worthy. The ending is beyond ridiculous. Any sacrifice the characters may have gone through was completely moot by the end since the mad cow disease finally ended it all... oops I gave away the ending. Perhaps you can save yourself a couple of hours and a boat load of brain cells by avoiding this one.

Brian H (es) wrote: After watching Beau Travail and Friday Night, it is clear that Claire Denis is one of the most talented filmmakers working today, period. Beau Travail was a masterpiece, a perfect dissection of the male ego and examination of the dehumanization in an extreme-military environment. With that being said, I was even more impressed with Friday Night. Once again, Denis portrays a character trapped and suffocated by their environment. Only this time, she adds touches of surrealism that are playful and ultimately, liberating. The cinematography is breathtaking. I've an avid people-watcher, and Denis captures this element perfectly as we follow one character's escapades through just one "typical" night. Ultimately, I believe the film is optimistic, showing that we sometimes get too tied down by daily routine to notice the beautiful in life. I know I've been light on plot details, but these are just my gut reactions. I look forward to checking out the rest of Denis' work.

Camille L (ru) wrote: Le film a beau etre sympathique, bien joue et avoir une SANDRA BULLOCK epatante, il manque cruellement de rythme, d'interet et d'un bon realisateur pour etre vraiment bien. On s'ennuie un peu, la fin est bien trop longue, mais c'est chaleureux. Dur a evaluer. Pour les fans du duo principal seulement.

Simon G (nl) wrote: Semi-autobiographical account of a portion of Charles Bukowski's life as a "barfly," from a screenplay written by Bukowski himself. Not much of anything happens as Henry Chinaski (Bukowski - played by Mickey Rourke) makes his way between his favourite bar and the apartment of his new love interest Wanda (an excellent Faye Dunaway), drink in hand most of the time, but Barfly definitely has that beat feel to it and Bukowski's unique humour is present and correct. Probably the finest performance of Rourke's career.
Pierluigi P (fr) wrote: The story of the deranged french butcher began with this short film that displays every single trademark of the pretentious filmmaker Gaspar Noe, the prominent use of black and red, the disturbing presence of Philippe Nahon, titlecards, explicit carnage, sexuality and gutter language. definitely not for the squeamish.

Alex F (ru) wrote: Great thriller about a mass murderer and how it became one of the hardest cases, driving people insane, which the movie portrays perfectly, the pacing feels a bit choppy at times but the great script and performances compensate it, making a great mystery solving thrilling movie that always keeps you at the edge of your seat.
