A film about family and what it gives to our lives. The Tenenbaums, a damaged family of adults whose characters can be broken-down into single personality traits, have no good reason to be with each other apart from sharing a last name. In its 110 minutes, it makes its heartfelt case for the value of familial togetherness - that the only thing that can heal a broken person is another one.
There are two mesmerizing things about every Wes Anderson movies: color and sound. And, oh, the symmetry. Three. I suppose I don't need to talk about it that much anymore. But as per the story, usually he adds a little much fantasy but here. The simplicity of the story and characters touched my heart. This is definitely a movie worth watching together with le familia.
A suffocating avalanche of fastidious artifice. Irritating grab-bags of twee quirks masquerading as character development. Endless pop music to make sure you know exactly what you're supposed to feel every damn scene. In other words, another Wes Anderson movie. But at least Gene Hackman's character was allowed to not be insufferably twee, making parts of this somewhat bearable. Gene elevates this to a glowing C-.
THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS - perhaps - is Wes Anderson's early famous movie. Full of spectacular A-list actors/actresses. THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS has a simple storyline actually. It's about an ex-member of a dysfunctional family who wanted to unite his family again. Yeah, it sounds ordinary. But this movie has a solid story. It became exciting when Wes Anderson puts comedy, drama, romance, and depressing themes all at once...
Subjugué par la détonante stature de l'inventif et succulent matamore Tenenbaum senior, interprété par G. Hackman, éblouissant d'évidence et de rouerie, l'ensemble des compositions des principaux personnages s'énoncent et s'affirment comme succulentes, énormes et hautement jubilatoires, dans un défilement de scènes cocasses et sous-jacents d'une diffuse et dépressive amertume existentielle. www.cinefiches.com
