Unfinished Song

Unfinished Song isn’t exactly a comedy – unless, perhaps, you’re comparing it to the likes of Amour. Then sure, it’s a hoot. The film tackles a rather sensitive subject – death – with poignancy and humor and a heavy dose of melancholy. So let’s call it what it is – a melanchomedy. It’s a slow, sweet and funny indie in the vein of a Quartet or Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Letters To Juliet

Letters to Juliet is a total chick flick but (thankfully) not a weep-fest, so you can leave the tissues at home and bring on the popcorn! The consensus among the audience of mostly women – of varying ages – was that the movie was “cute”, and I concur. It’s not great. It’s not high art. It’s not particularly thought-provoking. But it is indeed cute. And it definitely left me itching to embark on a road-trip across Italy. (Who’s in?!)
