All concept and style with no meaning, superficial and shallow...
16 October 2014 | by (San Luis, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I give this movie only a 3 not because it's cinematography, which is quite good, or it's actors, which are very good, but because the concept just kills the movie...

This is a movie so full of it that pretends to tell a story about a rich man, Conrad Valmont, going from pleasure of life, money and fame to loose it all and get the girl of his dreams and pretends to do it introducing the concept of love, possessions, friendship, drama and comedy all at the same time, failing in all aspects at once.

The concept is there, the movie is literally filled with style all over the place, carefully constructed with the tones, the scenery and each line, but in the end, it is incredible shallow, because it tries so hard for us to like Conrad Valmont and the way he is growing up in the story, yet it does it with detached images of himself and a voice-over.

THe most important parts of his life are done with pictures and a voice- over telling us WHAT we should be looking at in that moment.. what we should be feeling...

I have an advice for the director, don't consider your public just dumb and don't fill the movie with pretentious dialog like we can't distinguish an analogy from a concept, just give us the scene and let us use our imagination.

By telling us what to feel and what to think about our main character the movie does itself a great dis-service, it detach it's audience of participation on this characters.

By the time the movie is on the first half, i lost all interest, this is more an exercises in a filming technique with complex words and a cumbersome script that pretends to be intelligent than a movie about any real topic whatsoever.

The movie is not about love, nor growing up or friendship, it's everything and nothing. Tries to give a message and fails miserably, tries to makes us laugh and fails, elaborates complex dialog and a narrative voice-over that ends up generating discomfort to the viewer.

It's funny because Conrad discover he is just a prick and an egotistical person and when I finish watching the movie I think the same about the production team.. They just did a movie using a concept and some specific style just because it's nice and they totally forget about doing a movie with some heart in it.

The result is a movie full of itself with tons of dialog that accounts for nothing and about the worst selection of music I ever listened in a long time.

Go watch any other romantic comedy but this and you should be fine.. AVOID it unless you want to punish yourself and your girl.
