Millo's Recent Reviews
Very similar to "La dolce vita", but more concious of the mediocrity the character is sourrended around.
The first part could have been bright and shining, if it weren't because it is easy to predict what there is underneath. So, the second part of the movie, which has an unconfortable and disturbing atmosphere, shows us no more that we expected. In that sense, a little disappointing, although it is true it has great moments. Also, a very good photography and, mainly, great interpretations. Between 2 and 3, depending from the point of view you take. It is sad first part of the movie is "Amelie", and second part is Haneke, and that is probably quite close to truth.

Philip Noyce takes magnifically this ambigous, moral-controverty story from Graham Greene, and takes all the atmosphere from Vietnam before the war was really serious. Reflects the way to do politics by certain nations, mixed with love and other more personal problems. Very modern and actual, important to reflect the world where we live, with a main character -fantastic Michael Caine- which is not a hero but someone who tries to survive and confront his curses and ghosts. Diferent sides, and sometimes people takes part. Very deep movie.
