A good movie

Honestly, I'm not really familiar with Coixet's work and it is the main reason why I wanted to check this flick. Eventually, I thought it was pretty good. Isabel Coixet is a very good director and the movie was beautifully shot. Both leads gave some very good perfomances as well and it's a shame to think that Ben Kingsley wastes his talent in such terrible movies like ' The Love guru', ' The Last ... read more

Description: Driven by Isabel Coixet's visually assured and deeply observant direction, Elegy charts the passionate relationship between a celebrated college professor and a young woman whose beauty both ravishes and destabilizes him. As their intimate connection transforms them-more than either could imagine-a charged sexual contest evolves into ... (more)

July Movie Journal - Xanadon't (36 movies items)

" Netflix Instant Aging intellectual enters into a love affair with a young and beautiful student. On the one hand, this film is far better than most any film of such description has a right to be. Much of this is a credit to the extremely fine performances given by Kingley and Cruz. (Though there is a delicate and genteel touch to the direction that establishes this film as something to be reckoned with.) On the other hand, the final 20 minutes effectively undo all the work the film had done"

“Honestly, I'm not really familiar with Coixet's work and it is the main reason why I wanted to check this flick. Eventually, I thought it was pretty good. Isabel Coixet is a very good director and the movie was beautifully shot. Both leads gave some very good perfomances as well and it's a shame to think that Ben Kingsley wastes his talent in such terrible movies like ' The Love guru', ' The Last legion' or 'A sound of thunder'. Concerning Penelope Cruz, I never thought she was really attractive...until I saw this movie. It's too bad the story was not so strong and there were a few sub-plots which were not really well developped. So, it's not flawless but it is a good flick and it touched me personally considering that my wife is 10 year older than me so this movie had, in my case, an extr” read more

"Apr 4 @ Netflix Streaming USA, English (First Viewing) Great acting all round but this story of a middle aged man having a fling with a young student leaves me nothing memorable in the end."

"Cruz is stunning as usual, and shows quite a bit of skin. Almost so much that it distracts me from the so-so story."
