That's the first ten minutes sorted, then the next 110 minutes shows how he became what he became, by going backwards through the previous twenty years of his life. As one of the few reverse chronology films, it's definitely worth a watch, though I found it harder to get involved fully in his life when such a large time span was being covered with a handful of key moments. The sweetness of the final scene stays though.
Michael C (mx) wrote: Cronenberg's skill at telling strange tales punctuated with plot twists and bizarre characters suits this film adaptation of David Henry Hwang's 1988 play very well. Based on true events that are hard enough to believe as it is, few directors could have told the story as convincingly on film.

Narges M (br) wrote: Everyone forgetting something at somewhere and having to pay for it! That's the main force of the story. It was hard to believe for the military bad-ass to forget the rope and then sleeping in the elevator before completely searching it (and finding the door on the floor). I can assume that in 1957 all of these ideas in the story were brilliant and this was a fantastic thriller. But it's not in 2011 anymore!
Ben L (nl) wrote: I didn't want to like this movie. Since I'm still a novice with silent films I had a false perception that physical comedy works better than drama when you have extremely limited dialogue. At the beginning when they were setting up the story I almost gave up and said this wasn't worth my time. This frustration came despite the fact that they used some really neat transitions with the text to show flashbacks in order to establish the characters' backstory, which displayed creativity I would normally love. My negative attitude started me on the wrong foot, but I hung on to see what the main characters would do, and somewhere along the way Sunrise won me over. The struggle of this married couple felt so genuine, I understood what was happening in every moment and even what the characters were thinking (impressive because Sunrise had less screens of dialogue than a Chaplin movie.) About two-thirds of the way through I realized I was hooked and couldn't wait to see how the story would end. It was such a satisfying film, and displayed more real emotion in the performances than I've seen in many modern movies with pages and pages of spoken words. It did lose its way a little in the middle and spent a bit too long in certain sequences, but because I was invested in the characters at that point it was worth it to see how it all would conclude. Just like any silent film, this isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, but I managed to connect with the magic, and I think others might enjoy it too. Luckily, Sunrise is available for free on Youtube, so you can give it a shot and see if you are as entranced as I was without spending a penny.
