good picture, solid message and strong performances
We must destroy in order to rebuild: the message of the picture is clear, I would say very physically clear, since there’s much physical destruction, and I found it a very empathetically convincing message, since who has never felt like destroying a place, just to get rid of the past, of something we hate or no longer stand?
The story develops with a steady and quick pace, but is also intertwined by dreamy moments, which soften the overall realistic attitude of the movie. The incisive soundtrack is also wisely chosen to give more value to some emotionally intense moments or to enliven the atmosphere. The cast does a great job, Jake Gyllenhall truly inhabits his difficult and at times incomprehensible character, and is worthily supported by a never disappointing Naomi Watts, and the little boy offers a good performance, too.
On the whole an enjoyable and also thought provoking picture, which leaves much to think about what could lie beneath the ruins if we had the courage to deconstruct the more or less frail scaffold of our existence.
Heavy, but real.
Don’t go into this expecting a comedy, even though that is one of the tags on the IMDb page. Though it does have elements of dark comedy.
This is not a lighthearted movie, to say the least; yet I would describe it as powerful and very “real.” It is the complete opposite of a fairy tale and the complete opposite of romantic comedies – and that is very refreshing. It will cause you to think long and hard about your own relationships. You will continue to think about the movie long after you have left the theater.
If you like thought provoking movies that have very authentic characters and story lines, then I recommend this movie for you. The movie isn’t all dark, it does have it’s lighthearted moments and I felt it did a great job building the emotion as the movie went on.
