Fast Paced and Very Well Done (by valsna-885-781431)
As someone who had previously read the book and was pretty much amazed by it, I was both very eager for and quite wary of this movie. On the one hand, I wished to see one of my favorite books come alive. On the other, I feared the actors and director might not pull it off.I must say it was much more amazing than I expected it to be. Everything was very fast paced and there wasn't a minute left for the audience to sit and ponder on what might be happening. All my attention was on-screen even though I knew what was going on and the ending would not shock me into a stupor which is one of <more>
the main minuses when you have already read the book . Still, the acting was superb and I was truly surprised and stunned by Firth whom I've never quite believed capable of pulling such a demanding role. Hands down to him and his colleagues for doing such a great job on this movie. This one is gonna go to my favorites and I'm not even sure if I like the movie or the book more. Either way, I believe this is one of those rare occasions when a book-turned-movie has been done purely great.
It was such a good movie. Everything was perfect about it. Why did people rate it so low? It kept me entertained the whole time. I tried to watch "no country for old men" It was so boring I couldn't take it and switched to this one. Nicole Kidman is a stunning perfect woman who doesn't age. She's a great actress. I'm glad I found this after a long searching time. I found it by searching the tag "mental patient". I love horror and I watch every single one of them. This was more of a crime thriller mystery but I'm glad I watched it
The plot of the film is similar to 50 First Dates, where a woman wakes up each morning forgetting everything that happened in her past after her accident that caused the amnesia. However, the film does a good job keeping the audience guessing who is real and who the true villain is until the very end. There were a few times that my jaw was on the ground, eyes were wide, I grasped the seat and stopped breathing when a new plot twist appeared. The trailers for this film do not do it justice. I was completely entertained and enjoyed the film. There is only one sex scene, no nudity, but there are <more>
a few brutal violence scenes as well as some strong language in this film. I would not recommend this film for young viewers. The film is only 90 minutes, but it moves fast and new things are revealed throughout the film. I would not recommend leaving the film once it starts as you may miss a key scene.
A satisfying, keeps-you-guessing thriller. While amnesia is certainly not the most original of plot devices, there's something unique here in terms of truly portraying the emotional, daily hell an amnesiac and loved ones must suffer. This is aided, by no small means, by strong performances by Colin Firth and especially Nicole Kidman.The plot definitely has suspense and there are sufficient twists and turns to ensure that you truly can not predict the outcome. There's also a nice combination of languid pacing intermixed with truly jarring and lurid scenes. In some ways this had a <more>
dream-like or, take your pick, nightmarish quality in tone.A few plot holes make themselves known by the movie's end, but when a thriller ushers you out the theater door while still meditating on memory, marriage, and trust...I'd say that's a job well done.
Exciting and tense mystery about a woman with no memory. (by guchrisc)
The film opens with a woman, played by Nicole Kidman, waking up in bed with a man. She seems disconcerted and confused. Entering the bathroom, she encounters photos of the two of them. Leaving the bathroom, she sees the man, played by Colin Firth, who is now sitting on the bed. He tells her that they are married but that she had an accident, and that she can no longer retain memories more than a day. Mr Firth then goes off to work, and Miss Kidman is then phoned by a man, played by Mark Strong, who says he is her doctor, helping her to get her memory back. He instructs her to find a hidden <more>
camera, which she does, and finds that she has filmed herself, to leave messages to herself.These are the opening scenes of the film which are also in the trailers too. Thus the film looked exciting and worth going to see. Which it is. The source material for the film is a 2011 novel by SJ Watson. This debut novel may be applauded, as may the film, however both are really not that original.It may be recalled that in 'Total Recall' 1990 , a humble construction-worker, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, has a wife, played by Sharon Stone. A little bored, Mr Schwarzenegger goes on a mental holiday as a secret-agent, only to find that he really is a secret-agent. He finds this out, when escaping the bad guys, he finds a film of himself, telling himself, that very thing.It may also be remembered that in Memento 2000 , Guy Pearce also played a guy with no memory. This memorable, and remarkable, film, starts at the end, and the whole story is told in reverse as Guy Pearce, helped by Joe Pantoliano, tries to find out who killed his wife, using tattoos to keep notes.Thus, 'Before I Go To Sleep' is not based on an original idea, but rather the concept is very familiar to those who have seen 'Total Recall' and 'Memento'. However, this does not make this a bad film, far from it. Whilst not original, the film is a little different from the other two films. They were more action movies than this one, which concentrates on the relationships.The acting is superb throughout the film. Miss Kidman captures the emotions perfectly. We have no doubt that each day she wakes up in a strange bed with a strange man. Mr Firth too, acts well as the loving husband who has to explain everything to her, every day. Perhaps of the two, Mr Firth has perhaps the more demanding role. He has to show both exasperation and love, and he conveys his range of emotions well. Miss Kidman has perhaps a slightly easier role to play, that of the innocent woman, not understanding, or knowing who to trust. The ever reliable Mark Strong, playing the doctor, also gives a very subtle and ambiguous performance.Rowan Joffe is the Director, and also wrote the screenplay. He has done very well to get very emotional and realistic performances from his trio of central characters, as well as from the supporting cast. Mr Joffe maintains the emotion, mystery, and tension, throughout the film. At times, you could be forgiven for thinking, that you were watching a film by that master, Mr Alfred Hitchcock. Parts of the film can easily be compared so, stylistically. However there are also many emotional kitchen-sink-style domestic scenes, all captured well.If you like adult-themed mysteries and thrillers which deal with relationships, as well as messing with the mind, then this is the film for you.Good film. 9/10.
I agree with the reviewer who wrote that this was "three quarters of a very good film." The cast is marvelous. Kidman brings movie queen presence and guarded vulnerability to her role, as only she can. The icy, remote, sparse atmosphere of the film is noteworthy, but somehow creates a detachment from the raw emotions of the story. The plot unfolds in an efficient, generally satisfying manner. However, the film is sober, where it should have been flamboyant, and safe where it might have been edgy. In the end, I was wishing this had been filmed with panache, by a stylish and <more>
adventurous director. Atmosphere and character developments might have been richer and more complex. As it stands, it is a solid, classy, well-acted potboiler.
Not that original but worth watching (by adrianwarner777)
Overview: Clever, emotional, Kidman in her 40's is a totally different actress hopefully she'll get a role that will become a classic .If you've seen 50 First Dates and Momento then you will have this movie pretty much figured out in the first 15 minutes or so. However that said it still manages to leave you just as uncertain about what's going on along with Kidman's character until the reveal. Careful observation will give you the clues though. The plot is clever and as you'd expect Colin Firth acts superbly and Mark Strong is also very good as the Doctor. As for <more>
Nicole Kidman I must confess age has done her wonders, gone is that teenage look that may have prevented here being taken seriously for "heavy" parts. The Others was a bit wooden although the character did require that in fairness , Australia would have benefited from Nicole's more mature look. She is excellent, pulling you in to her confusion and roller coaster of emotions she goes through with each day and set of new facts she finds out. I really enjoyed this movie and would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a clever thriller without the pointless need for tons of special effects.DON'T read spoilers, they really will ruin the film for you.
What would you do if you only have one day to live for, for tomorrow you will always start anew again? Do we have to live through it or try to find something new? This is an interesting question. And this is what this movie is about. Just like everyday is a new day, you cannot tell the ending of this movie, unless you have read the book.Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth undoubtedly had made this a good movie. Ms. Kidman is still stunningly beautiful even as a distressed woman. And the running time of the movie just perfect.If you are a fan of drama or thriller movie, then this is a must watch. <more>
Too bad, there was already a movie called The Edge of Tomorrow with the same theme by guess who , otherwise it would be perfect for this movie.
