All-star cast and some great performances cannot save this movie
16 July 2014 | by (Cincinnati) – See all my reviews

"Third Person" (2013 release; 127 ,in.) brings three separate but somehow interwoven stories. As the movie opens, we get brief glimpses of all the main characters. Eventually the three following story lines emerge: Michael is a former Pullitzer Price winning writer who is now struggling big time to write his next book. He is holed up in a hotel in Paris, where he is visited by his (much younger) girlfriend Anna, herself hoping to become a big name writer. In the second story, Sean is an American business man in Rome where by chance (?) he makes the acquaintance of a Roma woman who is desperately trying to get her 8 yr. old daughter back in Romania to join her in Italy. In the third story, Julia is a young divorced woman, down on her luck, and desperately trying to visitation right to see her young son. To tell you more of this plot-heavy movie would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: first, this is the latest project from respected writer-director Paul Haggis, he of "Crash" and also "Million Dollar Baby" (as writer only). Second, it takes a long time to understand what is really going on, and in general I don't mind a long jelling process at all in movies that are well written and thought out. Unfortunately, here the wait does not pay off. The movie feels adrift and without a clear sense of aim. Third, this is a very international tinted movie, shot on location in New York, Paris, Rome, Antwerp (Belgium) and Taranta (Italy). Fourth, the all-star cast tries to do its very best with the material that they were given. Olivia Wilde and James Franco shine in particular. Last but not least, there, there is a great orchestral score for the movie, composed by Dario Marianelli. When Moby's "The Only Thing" starts blasting over the end titles, it felt like a relief, frankly. It's finally over!

The movie showed up last weekend on two screens in all of Greater Cincinnati. The late matinée screening where I saw this at was attended okay for a weekday matinée. When one of the big "secrets" of the movie is revealed, a collective gasp was audible (and also the comment "you gotta be kidding me!"). I really wished the movie was better than it turned out. I guess there is a reason that this it currently holds a 21% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Viewer beware!
