|Directed by||Wojtek Smarzowski|
Rating: 1.5/4 -- While there are many of the right ingredients here -- a likable cast, plot potential, a dreamy English countryside setting -- I still can't say "I do" to this fluffy flick.
Clare Kilner's cast frolics in the countryside in an appropriately British-romantic-comedy fashion, and at times the characters trade silly snaps, but Dana Fox's screenplay is structurally shaky. Full Review
Nothing says true love like a movie about a desperate, neurotic woman who hires a male whore to take her to her sister's wedding so she can make the ex-fiance jealous. I wonder if they have a Vermont Teddy Bear for that?
Ebert & Roeper
The only positive thing that can be said for The Wedding Date is that for some completely inexplicable reason it is set in England and so includes some lovely pastoral scenery and some interesting looking hats. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- This is a charmless, lifeless affair that had me leaving the theater in a mood more appropriate to a funeral than a wedding. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/5 -- Perfectly watchable even if it's deeply lazy filmmaking. Full Review
Shadows on the Wall
Rating: 2/5 -- The main problem with the film is that it seems to be missing a sequence where we see Kat and Nick actually falling for each other - the script pretty much expects us to take it for granted just because they're the leads. Full Review
A dream wedding ends with the perfect gift for the happy couple--a new car--in this feature from Polish director Wojciech Smarzowski. Unfortunately the car, which is a gift from the bride's father, proves to be a source of major concern for the newlyweds as Smarzowski's dark comedy unravels.
Overshadowed by the immensity of films like Solaris and Andrei Rublev, here are two lesser known works from Andrei Tarkovsky. Rescued from Russian film archives, The Steamroller and the Violin (USSR, 1960, 43 mins.) was Tarkovsky's diploma film for the Soviet State Film School. The story is a warm yet ironic one about the unlikely friendship between a young boy who loves the violin and a steamroller driver. At once diary and documentary, travelogue, and art film, Voyage in Time (Italy, 1983, 63 mins.) chronicles Tarkovsky as he scouts locations and explores ideas for his next feature. Accompanied by Italian screenwriter Tonino Guerra (Red Desert), Tarkovsky explores the countryside and medieval villages of Italy, searching for an internal landscape as much as a literal one.
