"You'll always be by my side," Gene Kelly says plaintively when Leslie Caron wishes him goodbye. And right behind me, a little kid asked his mom, "Is that because he's stalking her?" There is something kinda stalker-y about so many movie romances, which means they live or die by the charisma involved. Fortunately, Kelly had it. As for that little kid, when the lights came up, he said "That was a great movie!"
An epic of color, choreography, light, cinema, but also the most delicate observation of the casual grace of Gene Kelly I've ever seen. Minnelli's camera notes every lithe bend even when the actor is simply walking. And that ballet!
The Studio sheen of Minnelli's 'An American In Paris' is hard to see past first time, but the dark horse that is Gene Kelly - a true moderate socialist. Here is a man embracing a compassionate, emancipating ethos through populist cinema. Arguably, an extension of Capraesque redemptive narratives, this classic fails to disappoint.
Geçmiş hep güzel gözüküyor insana. Bu aslında film izlemek değil bir çeşit geçmişe zaman yolculuğu. Sanatsal gözle değerlendirebilmek çok zor bu yüzden bu kadar eski filmleri. İzlerken film dışında onlarca şey aklınızın ucunda. Tarih, yaşamın değişimi, sinemanın değişimi ve bir ton kişisel şey.
Leslie Caron ruined It 4 me 4real(except 4 when we 1st are introduced 2 her hehehe)....there mos def are moments of beauty in here with the last sequence,if only it had atleast 1 other performance on THAT level then I would of gave it 5stars but 2 me it sags and is kinda uneven. But I dug the Buster Keaton inspired opera dream ;)
