Artsy, sad and somewhat pretentious movie...
6 December 2011 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 12/4/2011 – 4 out of 10(Dir-Stanley Tucci): Artsy, sad and somewhat pretentious movie made by Stanley Tucci about a couple who play games that consist of one of them putting in a personal ad – the other answering it, and then each play the parts displayed in the ad. Stanley's character is a magician who appears to own his own bar and the woman, played by Patricia Clarkson, is the troubled wife. The story is narrated by their daughter, who we find out later died in a car crash where the couple was at fault. The games they are playing are supposed to be therapy to help them handle their problems they have had since the daughter's death. Some of the role-playing just doesn't make sense – some of it has some funny bits, but mostly it's the two of them not really making much progress and wasting their time together. The movie is based on another movie but was re-written by Tucci and David Schechter. The movie feels like Tucci's attempt to make a foreign movie, but here's the problem – Tucci and Clarkson are Americans, and the movie just doesn't come across very genuine. Sometimes actors are just not suppose to write or direct and maybe this is the case for this well-known actor. Sorry, this is just the way I see it after viewing Tucci's failed attempt at an art-house type film.
