Something in this is not very convincing. And if I think about each and every aspect of the film separately, I fail to identify what it is. But if I was forced to answer, I would say the story. I do mean the story. The writting (of the story) is well done. And even its metaphorical potential is quite amazing. But there is something quite unconvincing in all of it, everytime I did look at it. And I am a fan of sci-fi.
I might be one of the few people who really likes this movie despite its flaws. Sure its pretentious and a bit all over the place but to me there is some strange poetic beauty in this film I cannot shake. And to be honest I'd rather take a messy movie with an interesting tone or feel than a well-put-together-middle-of-the-road-movie which already confirms everything I know about cinema.
Thomas Vinterberg abimizi Dogma 95 Hareketi'nden tanırız ve saygı duyarız; ama, bu filmi rezil etmiş. Süper bir oyuncu kadrosu, ama karman çorban bir akış, zayıf teknik ve prodüksiyon... Bu kadar ilginç ve güzel bir konuyu, çok özür dilerim ama, "piç" etmişler resmen. Gereksiz duygusallıklar, anlamsız ve kötü SGI kullanımı, özensiz mekan tasarımları, gelecekte olma hissinin yaratılamaması, vs. En son sahne ilginçti.
Weakened by an inconsistent and utterly bizarre plot, "It's all about love" suffers of its multiple attempts to present a diseased and dying world through a disjointed story and improbable metaphors. Yet, it's not completely devoid of a certain and inexplicable charm, which unfortunately is just not enough to save the whole thing. Quite an unidentified object of cinema.
Apparently Claire Danes
was so panicked when she saw the film that she cried for two days and held a crisis meeting with Joaquin Phoenix about it.
When you see the film you understand how she must've felt.
Well... kinda. For us it's just a misjudged and badly executed film. For her it's all about a filmmaker - riding high on "Festen/The Celebration" - whom she believed in and who let her down.
I wanted to like it because I really respect Vintenberg and love Phoenix but everything about this movie was completely off. The plot was ridiculous, the metaphors were cheap, the directing was terrible and the acting was very embarrassing. As a whole, it was one of the most underwhelming and disappointing movies I've seen, except for its fantastic soundtrack thanks to Zbigniew Preisner.
