Tahira H (mx) wrote: A movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat most of the time....Rajeev Khandelwaal does full justice to the character and is a revelation on the big screen!!! Highly recommended!

Nicolas M (es) wrote: Classic Chabrol-Huppert mix. Although you do root for her character's mission, the real-lifeish ending just lets you go on an indiferrent note. Oh and the movie, although in a pleasna,t-enough tone, s note a comedy per say. Very few laughs if any.

Kean F (mx) wrote: I mostly reviewed shows or films from japan, but not this time its a chinese film. This is actually the first chinese movie i have seen and i think it is a good one. The movie is about a ten year old girl who is a subsitute for a class. The area she lives in is very poor and she is a character who will work for more money. Not every kid is a big character there is really only one kid who is important and he is the trouble maker. Soon though he leaves amd goes to the city because of his family being in debt. The girl then goes to the city to get the kid back into the school. Pros- I liked some of the minor characters a lot some of them have memorable moments in the film. Acting is shockingly good, i was shocked because of how young these kids are. Cons- I couldnt really feel for the main character at times, it seemed that greed was pushing her along at times. Reason is that the real reason she goes to look for the boy is because the real teacher would pay her more if all students stayed. Overall- It's a good film, if you dont like seeing childern in movies then dont watch it, but it is has some great moments and the ending is well done, even though it felt a little rushed.

Sara W (us) wrote: Moving film about a teen suicide - both male leads are very well written, but the female characters and most adults aren't. Keanu really brings it in one scene.

Claire H (it) wrote: I'm going to be tough on The Duke of Burgundy; with such glowing board critical praise it seems someone has to. Undoubtedly visually stunning, with spot on production design (albeit suspect use of hopefully fake moths), the film is notable for its willing self-positioning in relation to 'popular' erotic films such as 'Emmanuelle'. However, while the film consciously plays on the impression of pornography (the first encounter between the women drawing on the cardboard 'role play' scenes that may preface sexual activity in cheap, often dated, pornography), I am suspicious of its motives. Directed by a man, with a rather male senior production crew this feels like a film produced by men about lesbians in a way that might have necessitated a number of conspicuous 'exits' from the film set, such is the extent of its capacity to 'titillate'. I agree with reviewer Cole Smithey that I would like to have seen what a daring female director would have done with this premise. As it is, to have produced such a detailed film in so many ways, and yet sum up Cynthia and Evelyn's relationship with - 'please can we stop this' - 'yes dear'...'actually, no that won't work' is to inject a degree of conservatism into this film that is unimpressive. Why is it necessary for one partner to seem to want conventional monogamy and a loving relationship? Why must cinema constrain what could have been a fuller exploration of an alternate way of living? An independent artist's film I saw did a better job: here we see the exploration of pain, constraint and pleasure between two women, then the more stereotypically loving acts that may follow; The Duke of Burgundy would have been stronger for taking such an approach.
