Fun, but a couple of gruesome shots, and does the story add up? I'd have to see it several more
times to be able to answer that. But I thought it was excellent, beautifully shot, and skillfully acted and directed.
Perhaps the heroines were amateurrs and the movie wanted to reflect that. But for the very feel
good ending, a most enjoyable Chris Dowd, and an interesting bit of information about the Viet Nam War, the movie would not have made it past the cutting room floor. The director and screenwriter seemed to want to make this film relevant and address the terrible racist practices in Australia (as well as universal racism, viz. the wounded white American soldier refusing the aid of a black soldier when he can have the aid of someone he thinks is white, which practices under law have been there until recently, but the film merely drops references in maybe 3-4 times. It does not make those practices truly part of the movie--which ultimately is a flimsy rock 'n roll romantic comedy.
And Anna Karenina makes good use of that concept. An very beautiful, poetic, and supple rendering
of a massive novel. My one qualm is that Knightley, although gorgeous and the stuff that dreams are made of, is perhaps a bit too frosty to be convincing as anything other than headstrong; she conveys stuborness more than hopeless love.
Jude Law is wonderful as the man who gives every opportunity for redemption, although it is hard to believe that Jude Law is the least sexy man in the room.
The music is just right; not intrusive, and not tear-jerking.
All in all this is one of the most mature, well developed films I have seen in a while.
