(fr) wrote: Adam Stein (Jeff Goldblum) is a famous variet-artist in Berlin of the 1920's. He is a charismatic and smart guy, has a lot of luck with women and a great family.Sadly he is not clever enough to leave Germany, before the Nazi arrest his family. They end up in a concentration camp and the Lagerkommandant Klein (Willem Dafoe), who recognizes Adam as the smart, wisecracking artist, makes him his own personal dog. Yes, his dog. Adam barks, howls and gets petted, while his family marches on; right to the gas-chambers.Adam survives, but he ends up in a special home in Israel. He is not able to quit completely being the dog. But he still has his charme and his own special way to seduce people. He has a lot of influence on the doctors and access to every section of the home.One day Adam smells something. Another dog. And although everyone denies that other dog's existence, Adam knows better. He finds a little boy who lived a life as a dog and Adam is the only one who is able to reach him...and the boy touches him deeply.This movie was completely different from what I thought it would be like. It is mean, touching, innovative, entertaining, has the wonderful Willem Dafoe and the outstanding Jeff Goldblum and has a very cynical tone:"God is off to lunch, he left a note on your arm."

Starting with most recently watched DVDs back to late 2007. 2/06/08 DVDs [Queens Birthday long weekend Factory Girl Again this was OK. Pretty good performances, script OK although it didnt really develop into anything much in the end. Yeah it was sucky Edie was used for media fodder and her life was messed up when she fell into the drugs trap. I think her story isnt a unique one - if your parents dont let you get to just be a child and grow up in a healthy environment it kind of sets you up to fall in your adult life. Edie threw herself into the pitfalls cos she didnt know any other way. Shame. Maybe these people serve a purpose in life which is to live life but dont burn up and fade out too quick. Some people survive from sheer luck and others just know when to step away from the fire before getting burnt.

If you're willing to invest the time, there is an incredibly rich story waiting for you, replete with honor, duty, respect and love. Wonderful movie, but just give it a minute to grow on you. Well done film.
(us) wrote: I had incredibly high expectations when watching Open Hearts. Having recently seen Civilization (In A Better World) by the same director, a movie that truly made me sit on the edge of my seat from the beginning until the very end, I was hoping to feel the same when watching this one. Only I didn't. This movie had some incredible potential when watching the beginning, the outstanding imagery and the amazing song playing in the background. Only the potential disappeared a few seconds later. The storyline of this movie is sad. It's heartwrecking. But it felt like this movie didn't have any sorrows at all. I didn't feel any sympathy for the characters. Everything that happens is so terrible and heartbreaking, but when watching it on screen it didn't feel as terrible as it should've felt. I'm sorry to say that it was a disappointment. But when you've heard so much good things about it you just end up being disappointed because it wasn't what you'd expected. And that was the case with this one.

(it) wrote: The 'Die Hard' franchise is without question one of diminishing returns with each new outing but that doesn't mean this third outing is completely without merit. Sam Jackson is as fun to watch as always and the first half is riveting but once the gold heist kicks into full effect the film loses a little bit of much needed steam.
