A lavish and extravagant film with solid emotional pacing and dazzling effects. Quite engaging once the film settles into the story but the motivation and pining of DiCaprio's character was a bit hard to understand. Distraught and helpless Mulligan grew tiresome to watch but so did Maguire who rarely expressed anything! Reading the original novel is now something I'd like to follow up with.
Ho amato ogni secondo, con tutti quei colori, costumi sfavillanti e quelle musiche. Non è la storia più originale che esista e Leonardo di Caprio, per quanto bravo, non apporta alcuna novità nella sua interpretazione, ma è un film che riguarderei ancora e ancora, all'infinito.
I absolutely did not appreciate the modern music being used in this remake. Instead of placing me in the 1920s and getting lost in the characters and their networking's, I found myself remembering I was stuck in the 2010s. Also, certain character's styles were not captured correctly. 2 stars purely because the cinematography and set design was moderately taken into consideration.
