∫Mojo Watch Movie The Song of Names
Genre Drama; ; 2019; Canada; User Ratings 6,6 of 10; directed by François Girard. I saw this movie and had the chance to discuss it with Girard at the 2019 FIN Atlantic film festival while covering it for the radio where I work. I honestly did not expect much from this simple fact : the description made of the movie from anything I could read did everything except say what the movie was about. It said "beautiful saga across three decades and four countries" or "story of friendship, family, etc. etc." but no plot description. When this happens, it's usually because you have a weak plot.
The plot though, was not as cheap as the screenwriting. The plot is another ww2 holocaust drama (for some reason, we can't seem to ever make positive movies about jewish accomplishments, etc., only stories about the holocaust. This is an important topic, yes, though it has been treated in the multiple hundreds of films on the topic) with as an "original" twist, a musical background. This isn't bad, and makes up most of the scenes. It leads to the first and only interesting thing in the film - SPOILER - the use of song (the type in jewish liturgy) to memorize the names of people who disappeared during the Shoa. Though the music is beautiful, we aren't treated to any of the real "memory songs. we get a composition for the film score.
The shape of the story solidly bothered me. It's absurdly cheap - we've seen it all time and time again. Someone disappears, later it becomes a sort of "detective story" in order to find the person who went missing, etc. All you get is again "Protagonist goes to some place. Asks questions. Looks for person. Goes to next place, asks questions, etc. Not only is it a cheap and very common way to structure a story nowadays, but the realism of it hangs by a thread.
Nonetheless, the actors are remarkable, aesthetically the film is extremely well done, musically it's very nice. You might be moved by some parts, but overall this film is nothing you're never seen before, and you might not remember it later on. Watch it on Netflix, where it's bound to end up.
Jojo's bizarre adventures: Arian wind. This movie is originally a 2006 Danish movie. Oh god, Ive been in that court room. Chills. Also second comment. I Don't Like. Smartness is important in marriage and in a relationship and Im glad that cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my husbands phone. I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his phone. All I did was share my husbands phone number with Cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from my phone without having to touch his phone. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and Im glad to find out all his secrets and infidelity with the help of cyberhackinggenius. Im here in UK and able to access my husbands phone messages with a link on my phone even while he was away in Canada cheating on me. I got to discover that my husband who is legally married to me here in UK is also recently married to another woman in Canada and Im finally going through a divorce with lots of evidence against him. I read all deleted and recent chats on his Whatsapp, Twitter,Facebook,Instagram messages and Skype.

Stayed up late at night just to watch this, eyebags was worth it
An absolutely gorgeous and emotionally moving work. So enchanting and beautiful that it sometimes felt like some strange magical etherial time-travel - with utter darkness only a breath away. To everyone complaining: just don't watch it. Simple.
This is a movie about Von Stroheims childhood
Adele Haenel! I've loved her since Water Lilies. Glad she stayes true to herself, if you know what I mean 😏 The movie looks very intriguing, a total must watch for me. I caught this film when it was was screened at DSS-IFF in Spain last week. i'm a fan of Tim Roth, my mom was a classical trained musician, and I was genuinely optimistic about Song of Names.
I was disappointing. This is quite a poorly done work. Another user reviwer here said the ending was "shocking." No it is not, it is predictable. In fact the entire film is a endless run of cliche.
An exquisitely unfolding story that approaches the horror of the Holocaust from a different perspective - that of the many refugees who suspected but were left in the agony of uncertainty.
The restrained Britishness of the era is beautifully depicted and - just like some of the most effective and emotive music - times its climax to perfection. I love the original one with the roles in reverse and Mads Mikkelsen playing the orphanage caretaker. Im curious. "The Song of Names" directed by the wonderful François Girard, surpassed all of my expectations! The story is about the relationship two "brothers" and how that relationship changes over the years as the mystery unfolds. The score, by the great Howard Shore, expertly showcases the film's haunting, mysterious tone. Acting, directing and cinematography, to name a few, were all brilliant. Certainly worth a watch, even if just for the magnificent violin solos! The film catches your attention from the very first scene and leaves you wanting more after the shocking finale. I would recommend this film to musicians, as well as anyone who loves a good character-based mystery.
Both great feckin actors. I don't like it when people saydon't cry what the person really says isI'm uncomfortable with your feeling being let out that's why I prefer saying:It's okay let your feeling out* Mr. Rogers. This movie is a masterpiece.
0:13 🎶 It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood A beautiful day for a neighbor Could you be mine? Would you be mine? It's a neighborly day in this beauty wood A neighborly day for a beauty Could you be mine? Would you be mine? I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you Let's make the most of this beautiful day Since we're together, might as well say Would you be my, could you be my Won't you be my neighbor. Tom Hanks is not Mr. Rogers. But he is probably the only guy that can play Mr. Rogers right. This looks fabulous. Actual grown people. No stupid one-liners, super heroes, cryptozoologic fantasies, catastrophes, etc.
Why are people surprised seeing him play a role like that? have you never seen the tourist, public enemies, finding neverland, whats eating gilbert grape, the libertine, blow, chocolat and many more? there's so many amazing movies to see him in, so dont think about him as somebody who always plays the freak.
Spall's never won a BAFTA? Bleedin' travesty 's what that is. Perfect couple ever. What an angel ❤️ My favorite Artist hand down 🌹🌹. 1:16 - Notice how they removed Taiwan's Kuomintang and Japan's flags from Mitchell's original jacket to conform with the political correctness of today. Reminds me on My blue Valentine. Will definitely give it a shot. The Guy From Inglourious Basterds: The Movie.
