  2. Lapalu's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    It tries to hard to make connection with the characters, but it falls flat completely. I have a new appreciation for Wes Anderson right now.

  3. Ilona Buffet's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    Quirky doesn't work that well in Murrica

  6. Droog811's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    Not Jeunet's best...almost as if he decided to make a Wes Anderson-like kid's movie. Which isn't a bad thing but doesn't come anywhere close to his more inventive films such as Delicatessen and Amélie.

  7. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    A decent but strange movie and one of Jeunet´s lesser efforts. For a director that usually produces wonderous, witty and ingenious movies this one felt sad, depressing and almost devoid of any sort of "joie de vivre". The film lacked in most departments but I realize this is down to my relationship to Jeunet´s other movies, which I love (except Alien 4).

    Jeunet, Jeunet and Jeunet. What else?

  10. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    A strangely tender, fascinating misfire. http://theflickeringwall.blogspot.pt/2015/08/lextravagant-voyage-du-jeune-et.html

  11. msmichel's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    A rare misfire from Jeunet that in the end fails to tell a story worth telling. Visual flourishes aside (beautiful vistas shot across Canada) this film lacks in scripting, performance and worse of all in whimsy. Several good scenes and fine turn by lead Kyle Catlett don't make up for the frightful adult turns and the mawkishness of the finale. Seems like something was lost in adaptation here. A disappointment.

  12. Kurmismedituoja's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    It was a bit "as expected". But still very joyful. They did keep "Amelia" style! And the filming places - like a wonderland, proper. So basically, not a grand very good film which could ever win an oscar or something, but still extremely cute. And it makes you dream a little, even just for a half of the day.

  14. c3o's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    I was waiting right until the end for something not entirely predictable to happen, but this story of a precocious boy stayed entirely true to all clichés. A cute little tale, but nothing insightful.

  15. Moses Lumpkin's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    Spectacles include: Helena Bonham Carter's blow dried hair & Rick Mercer's baffling cameo.

  16. Maxamed Ibrahim's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    I'm not sure, but it does seem kind of irrelevant in the end, but I enjoyed it. It's a sort of "slice of life" story with a weak unlining story of a child trying to come to terms with the death of his brother. He's not a child, in the way most children are, he is for all intent & purpose, a genius. And if not a genius, T.S. Spivet is an odd ball from an odd ball family. Which is obviously good enough for a movie.

  17. Algitya's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    Some people might get the pace was unecessary exhausting. But still, this was a cute and probably today's most honest gem. A la Jeunet.

  18. Spoiler's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    A tal viagem que Jeunet se propõe na América, talvez não seja tão extraordinária como o titulo diz,mas pelo menos é extravagante.E como toda a sua filmografia, sempre a sombra dO FABULOSO DESTINO DE AMÉLIE, o diretor funciona como de costume, impondo uma narrativa fraturada,diversas situações e digressões, personagens únicos para, enfim, narrar um dos seus contos mais dramáticos, senão as desventuras do jovem Spivet.

  19. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    The pic doesn’t have the aura of “Amelie” or the vibrancy of “Delicatessen”, but is definitely more attractive in concept than Jeunet’s last film “Micmacs”.

  20. Matt Richards's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    A strange film this one. Stylistically, many of the Jeunet trademarks are in place such as elaborate crane moves, voice over, striking colour palette, and characters suffering from one form or another of OCD; yet the transposition to the USA and English seems to have striped it of lustre. It feels like a kids movie aimed at adults that doesn't have enough to please either. 2.5 stars

  21. Corriel's rating of the film The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

    A good, nice and cute, although not very original film.
