French whimsy with an English touch
I’d decided on the title for this review before I learnt that the source material was a French novel. That explains a great deal. Hector and the… is a deeply felt, funny, moving, insightful and whimsical look at how we (fail to) make the best of life. The film makes its points adroitly, avoiding (sometimes barely but a miss is as good as a mile)maudlin sentimentality. It’s liberally sprinkled with perfect one-liners, acute observations and star cameos but the glue that holds the whole thing together is the relationship between Hector and his girlfriend. It’s heartrendingly real. The version that I watched was a full ten minutes shorter than the original runtime and I’d guess that the few dots that failed to join up as needed were a result of that USA audience edit. Another guess would lead me to give the full length cut an eight rather than a seven. Here’s the deal. It’s a feel-good movie for which you won’t need a supply of sick bags. By the end, I felt… happier. Really!
Fanstastic, modern film with fine performances
I loved this film. It made me smile throughout and laugh out loud at several points. The performances are excellent, with Simon Pegg in particular turning in his usual high standard of performance as Hector.
I loved the locations, many of the supporting characters, the time-span and the punctuation of the film with Hector’s findings about Happiness as his “research” developed. For me, this gave the film a modern feel.
It was beautifully shot. I even enjoyed the ending and the discomfort it induced in some members of the audience.
A masterpiece of a movie. I could watch it again and again and will buy the DVD so I can watch it at Christmas or when I’m ill because it will make me feel better, just like a feel-good movie is meant to. 10/10
