about the commercial version of Dolphins
9 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am sure that if I had watched the director's cut, I would have hated the commercial version of Dolphins. But I guess it is like wine; if you only know a modest local wine, without having tasted a 1989 Bordeaux, you will certainly appreciate the local wine. As I have unfortunately not been able to watch the original version of the movie, I actually loved the commercial version. A few guys and myself went to the birthday of a friend who is passionated by cars, and he wanted to watch with us a new DVD that he had got recently. We were not very motivated because cars are are not our main preoccupation. Then he went on the internet and we watched together the trailer of Dolphins- http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi3969712665/ , and it looked like a film for 14- years old car lovers... but our friend was so motivated that we finally comfortably sat in front of the screen with a few beers (we did not find any Bordeaux). And it was absolutely not the kind of film we were expecting... very convincing actors, and also an emotional dimension. The director has been able to describe a very very dark world, full of violence, drugs... and in this hell, a fragile love story between 2 fragile people. The death of one important person of the film at the end is very surprising and shocking. But it is a great idea from the scriptwriter. If you have the choice, watch the director's cut instead of the commercial one, it is certainly better. But if you can't get the original version, I still recommend the commercial movie, it is a very very enjoyable film!
