La Corrispondenza is a wasted potential with dragging screenplay.
17 August 2016 | by shobanchittuproluSee all my reviews

La Corrispondenza (2016) : Giuseppe Tornatore has earned a good fame in International cinema with Cinema Paradiso (1988) and since then his movies are always gaining attention.Love is the key element is his movies which is shown in different ways and views.The Correspondence is such love story which has bit twisty plot.

Plot: Amy Ryan (Olga Kurylenko),a student and stunt woman and Ed Phoerum (Jeremy Irons),a renowned astrophysicist have affair for 6 years.When Ed goes out of town,both of them keep in touch by text and video chats.But shockingly Amy hears the news that Ed died 2 days back due to cancer.But still she receives messages and gifts under the name of Ed.She never feels lonely since then but still surprised about the mysterious messages and gifts.How did she cope with her life and how is Ed texting and sending gifts even after his death forms rest of the story..

Plus Points:

1)Plot: Though this plot resembles 1997 Korean movie The Letters which is remade in Hollywood as P.S.I Love You where a heartbroken girl receives messages or letters from their deceased love.Correspondence also has same plot but with new backdrop.

2)Music: Music by Enno Moricone is decent and gave the right mood at right place.

3)Performances: Both the lead actors performance is decent.

Minus Points:

1)Screenplay: Screenplay is the major drawback for this film.With such talented cast and crew,Giuseppe wasted with such boring screenplay.Except the initial 20 Min's,rest of the movie starts getting lagged with every scene.

2)Duration: With 2hr duration, this movie seems boring after 30 Min's. into the movie.

So, La Corrispondenza is a wasted potential with dragging screenplay.

My rating 5.5/10
