(nl) wrote: Formulaic but enjoyable British comedy about a man trapped in a dead-end job and a failing marriage but loves his real passion: historical battle re-enactments. Eddie Marsan should become a much bigger name after his great star turn here, and strong support comes from Jessica Hynes and Ewen Bremner and his wife and best mate respectively (Trekkies in particular will get a kick out of Bremner's ultra-nerd). The plot contains no great surprises, and the plot does lull occasionally, but the whole thing's so likeable you won't mind a bit.
(de) wrote: depressing movie, beautiful australian outback though... wonderful child actor... captures the anguish, angst and the struggle he faced with a unreliable ?mentally ill mother and a devoted but unpredictable father. Inspite of such a difficult childhood he grows up to be a well adjusted person... so maybe its not just conditioning..but how we respond to the challenges life throws at us?

(es) wrote: Do people hate watching Gypsies or something? I do not understand why this movie is so harshly criticized. Story is very good, it follows the novel by king pretty much and the acting is also pretty good. Maybe I'm missing something.
(fr) wrote: A tragic tale of Fando & Lis on their journey to the mystical city of Tar. The couple's stated mission is to cure Lis's paralysis, but the trek is marred by inner demons, leading to the demise of Lis. Fando vacillates seamlessly between playful tenderness and sadistic torture, preying on Lis's vulnerability. The beautiful Lis is wholly dependent on Fando, and unable to escape the reality of her situation until Fando eventually murders her. A film that is both playful yet tragic, and worthy of viewing.
(fr) wrote: SOY SPARTACUS Initially commissioned by the soviet government during the cold war in 1964, as a communist propaganda film, Mikhail Kalatozov direct instead this visual breathtaking and epic "tour de force". A movie so ahead of its time, that it could have changed the art of filmmaking forever. Unfortunately, the soviet government didnt like the result and banned the movie who was almost completely forgotten until it was re-discovered by filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola in a film festival, thirty years later. The story of the film takes place during the political transition between Batista and Castro. The movie is composed by four segments. The first three segments described the class struggle personalised by: 1) a prostitute. 2) a peasant. 3) a student. The fourth and last segment describes the result of this struggle by the transformation of a peasant into a guerrilla fighter. Beautifully filmed in black and white, most of the sequences are shot in extreme wide-angle and the camera passes very close to its subjects. The most incredible and breathtaking sequence of all times in cinema history (for me) is in the third segements where we follow in one shot, the camera rising above the city, moving through a building and finally passing by a window, flying away between two buildings following a funeral march. 46 years before, this sequence anticipates the movement of the subjective camera used by Gaspard No in his movie " Enter the void". Let's not forget that Gaspard No uses CGI where Kalatozov didnt. "Soy Cuba" inspired technically so much directors such as Paul Thomas Anderson (Boggie nights), Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu (Amores Perros), Gaspard No (Enter the void) ...to name a few. But what I find ironic though,is that a soviet pro-communist propaganda film was inspired by an american filmaker and one of his movie. I'm talking about Stanley Kubrick and Spartacus. Indeed, Kalatozov uses wide-angle shots as Kubrick did. Furthermore, in the last segment of "Soy Cuba", when three men are asked by militaries: "who is Castro", each of them answer " I AM CASTRO !" echoing the slaves in Spartacus screaming " I AM SPARTACUS !". At last,we can say that Mikhail Kalatozov succeded in directing a cursed masterpiece who redefines cinema where Eisenstein failed in directing a cursed project "Que viva Mexico".
