There are so many good things in this movie. First of all, Jennifer Connelly and Ben Kingsley are both awesome and give one of their perfomances ever. The movie is very well directed and it is a real bleak movie but it perfectly suits the plot. It all sounds like a great picture but it wasn't that good, eventually... First of all, Ron Eldard is not a good actor and what didn't help him is that his... read more

"90-luvun kotitalo on turvapaikka jännäreiden jälkikasvuna on valmistunut 2003 vuonna loistavasti näytelty elokuva, joka junnaa paikallaan jättää karmean jälkimaun suuhun. Ilman Connellyn, Kingsleyn sekä Shohreh Aghdashloon roolisuorituksia tämä elokuva olisi vain yksi draama/jännäri muiden joukossa. Oscar ehdokkuuksiensa arvoinen. Lopun Kingsleyn näytteleminen sai minut melkein itkemään ja hurraamaan. Onhan mies ollut aina inhokkilistalla, mutta eipä tämän jälkeen. Voi sentä"

" Note: The biggest problem is that they all fight for a house but why? To make sure there is a plot for this movie, otherwise there would be no story to tell... I thought it was quite obvious at the end (which I won't spoil). I mean, the story doesn't work very well. Why should you watch it anyway? There are so many good things in this movie. Above all, Jennifer Connelly and Ben Kingsley are both awesome and give some of their best perfomances ever. "
