Mike M (es) wrote: Resolutely theatrical in both staging and performance; one might say the determination the coppers display towards breaking the accused is as nothing compared to the director's desire to grind down his audience. It's all words - the kind of thing actors eat up, but too often mistake for a satisfying meal - and any subtlety or nuance gets lost in the flow: equipped with period hair and glasses, Spall could resemble any number of David Walliams/Robert Webb sketchshow creations, and the actor's technique and choices are left horribly exposed by the tight, constraining focus. Brown, at least, gets stuck into the language, and Dyer does what he can with the righteous straight bat [playwright Barrie Keeffe] equips him with, but it's just hard to see why this play's being revived now, in this format, other than to coincide with the arrival of another Conservative government.

Reste alors l'intrt pour le personnage en soi ici brillamment interprt par une juste et touchante Sylvie Testud et les mots, magnifiques et troublants de Sagan elle-mme. Pour le reste, c'est de la rembourrure qu'on finit tout de mme par pardonner malgr son ct fade et sans trop d'ambition. C'est assez anecdotique on doit se l'avouer, mais on est pas certain si on s'embarquerait dans le long tlfilm fleuve de 2 parties.

Sean C (jp) wrote: This is part of a dead breed of film, a lavish historical drama. Unlike other ones this film has heart, astounding cinematography, and creates a world that is lost but not overly romanticized. It is a tale of a strong woman who tries to love one unavailable man only to fall in love with another such soul. Contemporaries have been too hard on this one. I am almost compelled to wage a long campaign in its defense.

Esteban G (jp) wrote: "Do you want a leg or a breast?"Squeezed in the middle of Hitchcock's filmography, To Catch a Thief, is many times forgotten since it came out the year after Rear Window. Hitchcock also had greater success with his later films, Pyscho, The Birds, North by Northwest, and Vertigo so this film is easily discarded when we compare it to his other works. It is a shame because To Catch a Thief has many great things going for it which we now take for granted. For instance the love story mixed right in the middle of the mystery is captivating. Perhaps for modern audiences the mystery involving this copycat thief, known as the cat, may be way to easy to solve, but the heart of the story lies in the fantastic chemistry between Cary Grant's John Robie and Grace Kelly's Frances Stevens. The sparks fly between these two characters and their intense chemistry on screen is rarely equaled in modern films. This was my first Cary Grant film and only the second time I'v seen Grace Kelly on screen so perhaps that's why I enjoyed it so much. I was pleasantly surprised with this film and despite it not being at the same level of some of Hitchcock's other masterpieces it is a really enjoyable movie. The cinematography here is gorgeous and perhaps one of the best coming from Hitchcock. Deciding to film this on location in the French riviera was the best idea Hitchcock had and it really payed off. His cameo at the beginning of the movie just might be my favorite of his as well. There is also a spectacular car chase scene that is the highlight of the film. My only complaint lies in the fact that the resolution wasn't as strong as the opening and mid section of this film, but the pacing was well established and I enjoyed it. Cary Grant and Grace Kelly were magnificent on screen together and I look forward to seeing more of their classic work in the future. The gorgeous scenery and the romance went perfect together in this charming film from Hitchcock. Grant and Kelly shared an incredible chemistry together and their witty remarks also added some comedy to the mix. The film might not be as artistic as some of his greater work, but this light weight romantic thriller shouldn't be disregarded when we consider Hitchcock's films because it showed his versatility as a director and his capability of directing less serious films and making them better than the actual material really was. It's an enjoyable film and it accomplishes its purpose of entertaining the audience as it takes us through the gorgeous riviera of France and introduces us to these beautiful beaches and mansions. Some of Hitchcock's better known films could have benefited from the two strong leads in To Catch a Thief because for a light film they really got the job done. It may be a forgettable film coming from Hitchcock but it is far more entertaining than most of the light movies we are exposed to in the theaters today. Despite not having heard great things about this film, I'm glad I had the pleasure to watch this and see the sparks fly between Grant and Kelly.

Chris R (gb) wrote: I'm writing this as I watch it; I'll give it a rating once its overSPOILER ALERT throughout2 minutes in - the CGI is crap. Did the work experience kid or something do the special effects?So the opening is fairly slow, some sort of party I'm guessing. I think its new years. 9 mins in - is that Fergie? Her career has not gone well.I have to be honest I'm not even convinced by the interior scenes, its very obvious that the movie was not filmed onboard a ship but more than likely a fairly cheap hotel which would be better set hosting a high school prom. 16mins in - BIG WAVE! So now the boat is upside down, a wannabe hero has just stated, "I use to be a fireman, don't worry". This is probably the sort of person I would actively avoid in this situation as he has managed to now kill 4 people that were alive up until this point. The captain is now taking charge - Hurray! ... ah.... Hang on. He has opened with "We are not sure what has happened". Well I would probably make an educated guess based on the fact everyone is now walking on the ceilings that the boat is upside down. 23 mins - You know that slightly annoying kid that makes movies frustrating to watch because they bring nothing to the game other then a thin film of incompetence - yeah that kid has arrived everyone. Oh great the kid is now taking part in the extremely treacherous and audacious rescue mission. I am sure he will provide invaluable input -_-A father has located his lost daughter and its very sweet. They cuddle among the bodies of their fellow passengers. We are introduced to a helpful Texan.Not a lot is happening now, so we learn a bit more about the individual characters and you start seeing little relationships forming. From what I can gather the key characters are Kurt Russel, the little kid and his mum, this man who looks a little bit like the KFC Colonel, then the wannabe fireman and his recently found daughter. 39 mins - The Texan is now drunk and for some reason he's abusing the hero. I predict that he's gonna die. 40 mins - HA!! I was right. He dead. Whatever happened to Fergie? Not sure if they killed her off already. 46 mins - so the captains decision to keep everyone in the prom room has not worked out very well. Something exploded, then lots of water flooded in - I presume it was from the sea. Anyway, long story short, everyone is dead. I think that means the only survivors now are the 6 or so people we are following. This makes things a little easier. 49 mins - *main character is crawling through ventilation ducts as per ALL action movies. Im surpised he isn't wearing a white vest top at this stage.* He yells back to his fellow survivors "I SEE A VERTICAL SHAFT AHEAD" . It made me giggle hahaha. Jesus I give up. Don't bother watching it.
