Crop And Save
Larry Crowne (2011)
A nice comedy worth seeing it
This comedy is a surprising movie whose main attraction are the two main characters of the story. Both are well depicted especially the Julia's personage. Julia has never disappointed me through any of her roles in the dozens of films she has appeared in. The film is just highly enjoyable because its subtle story presented through a beautiful photography and sustained by an enjoyable music and sound editing. It's not only a nice comedy but also a fluid modern story which reflects not only several aspects of a rotten home but also the discovery of a spontaneous and promising new relationship. We can say we have known people and homes with this kind of situations, and that sometimes they reflect before our eyes how life is sometimes so complex or, on the contrary, so easy to accept and enjoy in spite of the difficulties we find in our unending pursuit of happiness.

A beautiful human story
It's quite difficult to judge or value this Mexican film without being moved by the human emotions it intends - and succeeds - to convey.
The story is quite simple but anybody can sympathetically understand the sudden ambition of the film's main personage. He seems to be a happy retired man living in a home where is loved and well considered by his wife, his daughter and his lovely little grandchild. But he wants more and dares to challenge the unusual initiative to start a new career in a local university where he will be in contact with young students in their twenties.
The intergenerational confrontation between him and the bunch of young students is well depicted with scenes of a common daily life, inside and outside the classroom where they attend the school hours.
The acting, the photography and the varied musical score are quite appropiated. The film is a surprising success for this opera prima of its director. The final scenes of the movie are quite sentimental but genuine in a very positive way.
This is a movie to be seen by all who seek in a movie a beautiful human story and a nice exposition of human values in terms of respect, appreciation, friendship and true loving sympathy.
Don Quijote, the fictional personage of the famous Cervantes's novel would be delighted to see this film, and obviously his faithful companion Sancho Panza.
This is a most to see movie, for all those - students and teachers - who are in search of human values in people who are living close to us. Roberto Girault has realized a nice film worth of a second vision.
