Deeply captivates with sea-scape, and warms the soul by a simple people whose existence ebbs and
flows upon catching fish.But to live is always the simplest passage ! After losing a love,Claire wrestles with such a dilema. Angry,she tussles the shore,the cliffs, demanding restoration. Enter:Celia an aged and very wise story teller.Celia senses the void in Claire's life,and begins to tell a story, which although brimming with legend and lore apothegm, seems realistic as the tides ebbing the shore [star fish marooned, yet only after surviving countless squalls, sea salt in the lungs,the mind, the heart.....as is death! ] Silly (Kirsten Dunst) the character in Celia's story,crested naturally of these truths, though the villagers viewed her as an obstacle to happiness. But "Silly" means happiness;fortunate;probably why she willed to meet life"head on", like a ship's mast, steering for new horizons and fate's fortune. But that's Kirsten! Giddy and a wonderful leading lady.
The english guy ( Simon Pegg) was hilarious - quite! But my attention focused, helplessly, upon the
lovely Kirsten Dunst (Alison Olsen ). So often she stars in these disfunctional roles. Not to knock the character, but she just harmonizes the script......in this one she's firm, disciplined, almost rude and unlikeable......but then she offsets with her kindness, considerateness, thoughtfullness, and that charming wit - forgive me if I sound a little overcome by crush symptoms. But when She's there, in that mode, I go crazy, I don't want the camera to lose focus, I just want to listen to her girlish voice, I want to help her, I want to learn from her, I want to see smiles return to those teary eyes. And her appearance - lovely as snowflowers on a blanket of winter white! The kiss on finale - smashing!
In a way this movie reminded me of storia di una donna (1970), dispite the true-to-life satire.
Madonna was glamorous, as always, and yet quietly, humble as a sea after a violent storm.
I would offer this movie to anyone addicted to love. It went beyond my expectations.........Guy Ritchie is a very talented director.
