I recently saw this film in its world premier at the Toronto Film Festival. Always Brando is a film that takes you on a deep reflective journey . The lack of predictability makes it fascinating as it moves from theme connected documentary and narrative into a deeper level of philosophy. It is beautifully shot against the majestic Tunisian landscape. The light and color add a tremendous value to the otherwise deliberately scarce elements. The acting varies amongst the actors. Some are very good and others are not so good. The direction is thought provoking yet tender. The audience at Tiff seemed to enjoy it very much as many had stayed for the QA with the director. All in all it is a film worth seeing for the freshness of the structure and the depth of the vision.
When i saw this movie on IMDb, a film about Marlon Brando made by a Tunisian director (Ridha Behi),as any Tunisian fan of this great actor ,I thought that it would be a delight to see it. But,unfortunately it was 1 hour and 19 minutes of torture : actors that can't act, a rubbish scenario, awful scenes!! I was praying in every minute that it gets better , but it's still getting worse and worse!.I was like "Ohh Marlon, forgive them, because they don't know what they're doing".In the end i wondered :"Did the director really loved Marlon Brando?" Because making a "film" like this one and dare to show it as a tribute to The Great Marlon is an insult to his legacy and to the cinema itself !
