Love is not strange, people are. This movie isn't about a gay couple, it's about how homeless elderly people can be a burden on their own family and how you truly know a person once you both live under the same roof. Lithgow and Molina give a believable performance worth watching.
Segue-se o filme, segue-se a vida. Um tom amargo e um sorriso no rosto. Estranho esse amor? Talvez esquisito e surpreendentemente simples.Tão simples que o sentimento ilumina esse cinema com tal força e evidência, que remete imediatamente ao filme anterior do cineasta -DEIXE A LUZ ACESSA- no mesmo exercício naturalista, doloroso e magistral de amores e desamores. Sim, e mais maduro também.
Decidedly, the magnificent "The Delta" was a unique moment (and initial) in Sachs filmography, although this very honest and touching film is a step forward in relation to the artsy soap opera of "Keep the Lights On". In fact, its anti-capitalist human truth is too rare if we think of its mature perspective without concessions to the ruling childishness. However, there is little specifically cinematic spirit in it.
Really tender and beautifully observed. Sachs has a knack for being minutely attuned to the changing dynamics of each scene, and small, telling gestures from his fine cast. This serves him well because he's able to make up for separating Molina and Lithgow too early in the film by fleshing out their relationship beat by beat. The ending is perfect and deeply touching.
A remarkably moving film about companionship and relationships. Everything here feels very contemporary. The last 15 minutes contain some of the most subtly beautiful scenes you will see on film this year.
A refreshing take on a long standing relationship between two partners who just happen to be men. It is a film more about the travails of aging, familial relationships and financial hardships than any kind of treatise on homosexual relationships giving the film a kind of 'everyman' perspective which is unique in the genre. Molina and Lithgow are terrific together especially in the bar scene late in the film.
