Plot: One day, driving aimlessly around the outskirts of town after a trivial domestic quarrel, a writer named Tomas accidentally hits and kills a child. Will he be able to move on? Runtime: 118 mins Release Date: 02 Apr 2015
I had given up expecting anything great from Wim Wenders a long time ago;he still made it in my best five list of directors of all time because of his German films of the seventies, but my enthusiasm had diminished after The state of things-his last masterpiece, in my opinion, up till now-and as times went by he, unfortunately, became a replica of himself, seeming to run after what he one was but ending up with a feeling of an awkward imitation, no matter how beautifully shot his movies always were. So it was a very pleasant surprise to watch in Everything will be fine the Wenders I once <more>
adored come back.The film is a lesson in directing, so beautiful, solid, subtle and emotionally rich-it is the only film for years that made me cry-and at the same time it is discreetly under the spell of the personality of the man who once made Alice in the cities and In the passage of time.The trailer I had watched says much about the plot but nothing about the way Wenders drives his actors-unexpectedly excellent, some of them-and the whole movie to a kind of perfection we encounter only in the Great:Antonioni, Polanski, Bergman, and, yes, among others, Wenders himself.This also means that the movie functions perfectly not only aesthetically but transfers feelings and ideas with maximum impact through minimum means.A masterpiece!
Wim Winders has created so many fine films – Wings of Desire, The Salt of the Earth, Buena Vista Social Club, Pina, Paris Texas, etc – that it is a pleasure to watch his unique cinematic language again. Based on a story written for the screen by Bjørn Olaf Johannessen EVERY THING WILL BE FINE is a series of moments of reflection about the impact of an incident on the lives of characters over the course of around twelve years. It is not an action movie, it is instead a film of contemplation that digs deeply into the human psyches of all the characters in the story – and in many ways <more>
shows that 'every thing will not be fine after all.Filmed in Montréal, Québec, Canada, the film opens during the frozen winter that surrounds a young writer Tomas Edan James Franco living in a tiny cabin attempting to come up with ideas for his third novel. He is at odds with his girlfriend Sara Rachel McAdams and while driving aimlessly after a quarrel her, he accidentally runs over and kills a child. The one child he sees is basically unharmed and he walks the child Christopher Jack Fulton home to his mother Kate Charlotte Gainsbourg who, while happy to see Christopher, runs to the scene of the accident to find her other son is under Tomas' car, dead. The accident and its aftermath deeply traumatizes Tomas. Over the next 12 years, he struggles to make sense of what happened and continue on with life, becoming a very successful writer who marries Ann Marie-Josée Croze , but when he looks in the mirror, he sees a murderer. Christopher Robert Naylor confronts Tomas about the accident years later and we are privy to see how even at that stage in Tomas' life the incident has bored into his soul.The film quite successfully shares the trauma an accident can have on all who are connected with the perpetrator – but none more damaged that the man responsible. The photography, both in winter and all seasons, is by Benoît Debie and the luminous musical score is by Alexandre Desplat. The cast is first class with James Franco probing deeply into a character so damaged it is difficult to imagine. Not a film for those seeking 'entertainment', but for those who enjoy films of beauty and philosophy, this Winders wonder is richly rewarding.
This movie is an absolute delight for the senses. The cinematography and soundtrack are stunning. There are many jaw-dropping moments where one can't figure out how the lighting could be so gorgeous, and the soundtrack adds a level of beauty that lends tangibility to this profound story of forgiveness and acceptance. If you watch this at home, dim the lights and put the phone on airplane mode, because you don't want to miss a moment of this delicious sensual feast. If you are fortunate enough to be able to see it in 3D on the big screen, bring along your favorite loved one and share <more>
the experience.Did I forget to mention the director? Anyone who has followed the cinema of Wim Wenders knows of his unique ability to conjure a magic like no other. It's like looking through a window of his eyes, noticing the things only he sees, the feelings he only he senses. Obviously, this is not for everyone, and there are expectations of a more traditional form of storytelling for some. But the man is a poet, telling the things that can not be told, showing the things that can not be seen.It seems as though Mr. Wenders has used this magic with each of the actors, as there are many moments when one watches the expression of the mysterious emotions that emerge in this powerful story without a word. A true feather in the cap for James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rachel McAdams. They each explore new techniques and territories in their acting, and work wonderfully with each other.
I do not have any idea why so many critics did not love this film. It had my full attention from the beginning of the first shot.I quickly realized that the film was going to use 3D to dare I say it add depth to the cinematography. There are no 3D gimmicks used here, nothing flying at your head or giving you a headache - the 3D effect simply makes the imagery that much richer, much as the careful selection of lenses or film stock or any number of other a cinematographer's tools can do. Every aspect of the camera-work is fantastic says me with a BA and an MFA in photography .I really <more>
found it to be engrossing. There are a lot of individual vignettes that are shown separately, without any real transition between some of them but those are intended to be seen as parallel to one another. Other parts transition chronologically; the whole thing I thought flowed beautifully in large part because there were so many threads running through and between the various parts of the film. It's very linear, and yet it sometimes isn't.And - James Franco did not annoy me. I know, that's terrible of me to say He often does, but this was a solid, mature performance. All of the performances were quite good, really; and they were built on a very good script. And you can tell that the person who put it all together has seeming effortless mastery of his craft. It's a film that's going to unfold in my head for a while yet. See it big if you can.
My wife and I are movie buffs. Our times date back when films were only shown in B/W. But I'm writing this review, so I must speak for myself. I mention that because in my younger film watching years I would probably find this production from director Wim Wenders and writer Bjorn Olaf Johannessen as slow-moving, unexciting cinema. However with age, it isn't wisdom that necessarily arrives,but life experiences. The movie is about an accidental death of a child on a wintry afternoon. The driver of the vehicle, Tomas, played by James Franco, walks to the residence of the victim.... From <more>
this point on we become engaged with the child's mother, the driver's life, his relationships with his friends, his father, his agent he's a writer and other persons one meets. The film, as in life, just goes along at a slow pace, now and then highlighted by some excitement, tragedy, or a good event. You witness people through their various moods, faults, blessings, shortcomings,and behavior swings: in other words--- acting human. I highly recommend this film and consider it a cinematographic work of art.
Film's message of forgiveness and reconciliation stands out (by howard.schumann)
According to German director Wim Wenders, "Landscape is never only landscape. It's also a state of mind it has soul and then it evokes and reflects who we are." That state of mind is revealed in the chilly winter portraits of rural Quebec in Wenders' latest film Everything Will Be Fine, his first fictional feature in almost ten years. Shot in 3-D by Belgian cinematographer Benoît Debie, the film stars James Franco as Tomas Eldan, a successful novelist who is fairly comfortable but whose relationships are not nurturing, especially that with his girlfriend Sara Rachel <more>
McAdams . Tomas' life is permanently changed, however, when an auto accident on a snowy road causes the death of a young boy and leaves the boy's brother Christopher Jack Fulton and Philippe Vanasse-Paquet as a twelve-year-old emotionally scarred and unable to give and receive love. suppressing outward expressions of grief, neither Tomas, Christopher, nor Kate Charlotte Gainsbourg , Chris' mother, are able to achieve any release, especially Tomas who carries his unexpressed guilt around with him wherever he goes, like a chain around his neck. Though Kate, an accomplished illustrator, is forgiving, telling him repeatedly that the accident was not his fault, he internalizes his guilt and makes a half-hearted suicide attempt much to the consternation of his overbearing father Patrick Bauchau . Franco delivers a sensitive performance as the conflicted author who is able to channel his suppressed emotions into his writing which become stronger and lead to long-awaited public recognition. As Tomas' career blossoms, he marries Ann Marie-Josée Croze , a woman with a young daughter, allowing him to become a father for the first time. As told in a series of flash-forwards, Tomas develops a close friendship with Kate but his relationships with Sara and Christopher Thomas Naylor as an adolescent build towards a series of confrontations in which long held resentments explode. Written by Bjorn Olaf Johannessen and enhanced by the strong original score by Alexandre Desplatt, Every Thing Will Be Fine, though very slow and ponderous at times, is a humane, poetic and physically beautiful film. 3-D is used sparingly but scenes such as children riding on a Ferris wheel at an amusement park and dust particles dancing in the sun create a lovely tone. Though not in the top echelon of Wenders' oeuvre, the film's message of forgiveness and reconciliation stands out, sharply contrasting with the all too prevalent cultural mindset of violence and revenge.
I think the most amusing review of this film that i've read so far stated- in a rather decisive manner- that this film is boring. perhaps i would suggest to the reviewer to change his tone of determination to a more forgiving one, like: "I did not find this film interesting" or " I couldn't quite capture what is it that the filmmaker was trying to convey".. or something in that sort. you catch where i'm going with this..This is a simple and straightforward story, no major twists, not too much happening in terms of plot. and that is the moment when the viewer is <more>
required to put some 'effort' in, to invest something, to take part, to be a part of this cinematic piece of art. but perhaps it is much to ask from a viewer who just wants to be entertained, and doesn't want to invest anything of his own into it, into the experience. perhaps this review isn't so much about the film but more so a mild expression of criticism for the inability of an individual to make an emotional investment when no reward or profit in return is apparent. but the reward is there- just need to try.
Its a movie that has many levels of interpretation and depth. Franco was great....abit flat, but I think his character would be, naturally. McAdams is great, but her "French" accent was not so good. Her "normal" voice came out and her french accent seemed a bit forced and unnatural. Sorry...I love her acting, otherwise. The female characters were all a bit pushy....like they expected Franco to be different than his true self. The "Artsy" people in this world are more misunderstood than your everyday person. I completely understood each character. I've been <more>
where they have been. A very relatable movie to me. A bit slow....but I liked the slower pace......The kid, Christopher, an odd kid...The mom was kind of odd too, but small town people ca be more odd, due to isolation...etc.....she was a stay at home mom with a very simple job.
