appena pensi che questo film non possa essere più sdolcinato&stucchevole, sparano a qualcuno alle spalle, scoppia una bomoba in discoteca, una casa prende fuoco. Kitten, la protagonista, è un sexy, svampitello, malizioso cilian murphy, orfano e bistrattato dai genitori adottivi, parte (tutto/a in tiro) per londra alla ricerca della madre e invece trova.. (non ve lo dico, perchè è la frase più strappalacrime del film)
I've started watching the movie with a bit of prejudice, but it took me inside at the beginning. It introduces us an anormal person in terms of his sexual orientation by reminding us he has a perfect humanity inside him when compared others. And, of course, the cutest detail in the movie is the talking birds. Such a childlike idea!
Cillian Murphy is mind blowing in this role, what amazing character with adorable personality. I almost wish Kitten had really lived and that as my neighbour. The movie itself has political and moral depth that is interesting but not too burdening to watch, because being from another country, 1970s IRA bombings aren't something I can understand or relate to.
a director who knows how to use van morrison, at last! the scene with the mother breaks my heart, and wets my eyes. all the big performers, give sensational performances, with ruth negga unbelievable, and murphy brilliant beyond his self. jordan's ability to present an enthralling story in a world of violence and abuse is something else. this is the work at the centre of his 'golden' period.
