The Bridge-- Take What Life Throws at You
22 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

There are many top-notch qualities in this film: The director's style, cinematography, writing, acting, ambiance and soundtrack are truly memorable. It is very true to the novel of the same name on which it is based, which won a literary award. The misery in it is haunting but it is not about failure. If one views it with careful attention to the dialogue and the last frames, there is much wisdom to be gleaned from it. Sometimes, themost surprising and effective art can result from tough times and disappointments in life. It is really about making lemonade out of a lemon. It is definitely worth viewing (and more than once), especially to people trying to make their way through the difficulties of creating art.
