A loose film with good acting
20 December 2001 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

Surprise! I am the first user to comment on this film. It makes me wonder why so few people care to say anything about this flick. And the low rating bewilders me. I went to see the movie with my girlfriend because the plot line interests us: a sick boy's incredulous friendship with an old man who lost his ability to talk due to serious illness. I've seen films of similar themes; none of them employs a speechless protagonist. For example, Timothy Dalton in Hawks (1989) plays a critically ill patient running from the hospital with another inmate to enjoy the last moments of wildness and glimmer before Dalton gasps his last breath. However his reason for looking at life at a different angle is somewhat forced by the impending date of doom. In Le Monde de Marty the old man is inspired by the kid who knows little about death but the way a kid is supposed to act--play. Though saturated with many ludicrous scenes, I think most audience expect a more sad ending because the two heroes¡¦ health condition is revealed in the first place. Michel Serrault's amazing performance compensates for the staggering rhythm of this film, but the somewhat weak though open ending leaves viewers with question marks on their faces. I think this is a good film for families, but it could be better if the director makes it less obscure in the end; children can be offered a chance to mull over life to a more profound dimension, and parents don't have to deal with a flooding of questions from their confused kids.
