A tender tale of torment, trumpet, and tap
21 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shot in black and white on a hand-held 35 mm DXL Supreme MP, Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench is a period piece without a period, a beautiful glimpse into a world without beauty, a heart-rending portrayal of the heartless. The film swings (no pun intended :)!!) between tortured silences and undistilled brassy mirth, with a fantastic debut performance from trumpeter and lead man Jason Palmer.

Chazelle's entrance onto the scene is nothing short of momentous, an omen of good things to come in a struggling industry. He brings art and subtlety back to a genre that has recent been diluted by big Oscar grabs (Chicago, Dreamgirls, Cadillac Records) and will be sure to make an impression at Tribeca.

This film would be a perfect ten, were it not for Bernard Chazelle's somewhat tepid makeout scene. Go for it, man! When else will you find yourself with a beautiful and eager girl half your age ... on camera?! Other than this one shortcoming, which will be sure to draw a few tsk-tsks from the monocled section at Tribeca, the film is FLAWLESS.

Bravo.
