Sometimes you watch a movie and you can’t but think “That must have been very cathartic to write.” Beginners is a deeply personal journey through two strands of time, which never really intersect in the narrative-proper but thematically and emotionally in ways both obvious and subtle. Never self-pitying, nor is it an embellishment of self-hagiography, Beginners strives sincerity, and never e... read more

Not enough but a pretty good effort

I must say that this movie tries too hard for it´s own convenience. It tries too hard to create lovable not-really-believable characters that you would love to have as friends (scratch that, you would love to BE them) and it tries to hard to hit that soft only one-tear jerker nerve we all have but we just dont use a lot. The filmakers get it done all right but you can almost see their continous e... read more

Description: From writer/director Mike Mills comes a comedy/drama about how deeply funny and transformative life can be, even at its most serious moments. -Beginners- imaginatively explores the hilarity, confusion, and surprises of love through the evolving consciousness of Oliver (Golden Globe Award nominee Ewan McGregor).

“In spite of corny, affected, arty dialogues; is moving, well structured around the presence and absence of Plummer, and sincere in its feelings (when Ewan cries, you cry).” read more

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. When it was done, I discovered that Mike Mills was the same guy who directed ‘Thumbsucker’, another movie I saw a few months ago, and it figures. Indeed, both movies were well directed, Mills managed to create a nice mood and I liked the attention he gave to his characters but, in both movies, there was a little bit too much to tell. I mean, not only the main character learns that his father is gay, but soon after his father gets cancer and dies. It would be enough for one movie, but it doesn’t stop here, as Oliver, the main character, also falls in love afterwards. And there were also some flashbacks about his youth and also some running jokes involving his father’s dog. I mean, I did like the wh” read more

Petri's Movie Diary - 2012 Edition (629 movies items)

"21.8.2012 Christopher Plummer päätti esittää homoa vanhoilla päivillään ja tämä päätös palkittiin Oscarilla. Ei Plummer yhtään hullumpi olekkaan roolissaan miehenä, joka tulee pois kaapista vaimonsa kuoltua. Ewan McGregor on elokuvan pääosassa Plummerin poikana, joka yrittää sopeutua isänsä uuteen tyyliin. Beginners on kelpo draamakomedia, jossa komediaa ei alleviivata liikaa ja tunnelmat ovat usein surumieliset. Julisteen perusteella voisi odottaa jotain hiukan iloisempa"

"Lovely! It's so cute! Christopher Plummer is adorable, I wish he was a little boy so I could adopt him.. Almost. He's wonderful! Everything else, however, not so much.. I don't particularly like either Ewan McGregor or Mélanie Laurent in it, they were kind of just.. there. It was like they'd "photobombed" the film.. "

"Oliver: I've always wanted to have a phone call with somebody who doesn't talk. Oliver: And I can really see Anna's eyes in 2003. Her ears. Her feet. This is what it looks like when she says, 'I love you,' in 2003. This is what it looks like when she cries. When she tells me there's always a new empty room waiting for her. They used to make her feel free. Now they make her feel the opposite of free. Anna: You can ask me anything you want. Oliver: Anything? What's there? Anna: That's a tree."
