Loosely traces the life of tenor Enrico Caruso (1873-1921). He loves Musetta, in his home town of Naples, and then Dorothy, the daughter of one of the Metropolitan Opera's patrons. Caruso is unacceptable to both women's fathers: to one, because he sings; to Dorothy's, because he is a peasant. To New York patricians, Caruso is short, barrel chested, loud, emotional, unrefined. Their appreciation comes slowly. The film depicts Caruso's lament that "the man does not have the voice, the voice has the man": he cannot be places he wants to be, because he must be elsewhere singing, including the day his mother dies. Throughout, Mario Lanza and stars from the Met sing.

Hannah D (de) wrote: The cast list reads like a who's who of Coronation Street, past and present with three actors starring in it. I found the humour a little bit too crude for my taste, but it was watchable enough. It was interesting to see two vastly different cultures mix with each other.

Jeff D (kr) wrote: In just his second film, Burt Lancaster stars in Jules Dassin's prison masterpiece Brute Force as the leader of a rag-tag group of prisoners. Despite an all-around stellar cast, including greats Charles Bickford and Howard Duff, the real star of the film is Hume Cronyn who absolutely owns the role of the bastard dictator of the prison. His performance is so good that it's easy to see why elements of his character come into play with the warden in The Shawshank Redemption. Brute Force is an efficient thriller with a dash of social commentary and a truckload of great dialogue.

No.. eihn tm toki huono ollut, mutta kyll mua hiristee tm nais/mies-rooleihin liittyv rsyttv ylinytteleminen ja kohkaaminen. Jotenkin vain en voi vltty silt vaikutelmalta, ett tt elokuvaa ei tehty aikoinaan minun katsottavakseni.

Serge L (au) wrote: Coraline was smashingly good, this one as well. They got hold of a strange and original story again and masterfully executed it. The stop-motion is extraordinary and their inventiveness boundless. Here the villain is cruel but has self-defeating flaws. Not all his henchmen are evil. And we have the boy-girl pair. The girl is brave, boy I like that! The adventure is masculine by comparison of Coraline, that was rather feminine. This kind of animation is so tedious, work-intensive, these guys must always have a darn good story to tell to make it. Plain delight all over.
