A thin line between creative and crazy
2 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Touched With Fire is a story based on the real life story of the director,Paul Dalio, ironically I think this is the reason why the movie seems to wrap up so neatly.

From the point of view of the film, manic-depressive is something certain people have that make them express emotion on a deeper level. It does not come off as dangerous at all in the film considering the film is about two poets who suffer form it

The movie is not convincing at ail that it's dangerous to be guided by your emotions, on one level it seems like that's exactly what the filmmaker wants you to take away, but certain points in the film make me uncertain.

One point that does come across really well is the idea that two people who seem so right for each other, are in fact the exact opposite.

It's a great strangely done romantic comedy about two people who are fighting the world alone, until they found each other. It was very passionate.

Katie Holmes was good in the movie too.

But it still bothers me that the movie does a lackluster job in having a firm foot on the illness these two carry. Weather positive or negative, I did not get the point.
