“This film was so sweet, it got awards even if it wasn't the biggest one of all, its a strong film and has a strong message within for me. Although it didn't win best picture in 2012 I'm just glad Octavia won what she deserved. Yes, it was a long film to sit through, but I sat through it and ended up really enjoying it. Jessica Chastain stood out for me as from begin in this film it's given her as an actress a big platform for the recent films she has done. Along with Bryce Dallas Howard as i'm biased because I like her.” read more

"16.3 HD The Helpissä on tehty muutamia varsin... pulmallisia ratkaisuja. Tuottajalistalta löytyy Chris Columbus, tuo keskiluokkaisten valkoisille suunnattujen perhe-elokuvien megamessias, joka selittänee yhtä sun toista sisällöstä. Elokuvassa nuori ja toiveikas journalistinalku alkaa tekemään kirjaa mustien kotiapulaisten arjesta ja elämästä "alemman kastin" edustajina ylemmän keskiluokan keskuudessa. Valitettavasti suurin osa elokuvasta kuluu valkoihoisten kotiäitien seuraeläm"

“Really really enjoyed it. It doesn't have the most original story but it is told in a very intimate and particular way. I bought it, loved al the characters and loved to hate Bryce Dallas Howard.

Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and specially Jessica Chastain gave me a lot of joy! :)” read more

"6/10 Yes, The Help is overrated Oscar bait. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't mind a film that's shouting after awards. The King's Speech does that, but I loved it nevertheless. What I don't like about The Help is the squandered potential. Because if this film would just dare to take the racial matter any further, and move away from being so safe and black/white in it's way of showing it. It could, and should have been more "provoking". The acting is excellent, though. Viola Davis, Octavia Spenc"

“The reconstruction of the atmosphere and of the objects, furnitures, dresses, etc. of the beginning of Sixties is philological and looks perfect. Same for the great actresses, who are all very convincing and deep in their role. But the movie is sometimes rhetorical and some scenes are made more to capture the emotions and the feelings of the watchers, than for their importance. Other small detail: the film is too long.. However its message is still very actual, and "helps" to make people aware about the theme of racism and discrimination.” read more

Misused & overlong story but amazing acting.

“Okay, so The Help is in many ways like The Descendants (one of its award adversaries of 2011) where it can be easily identified as another Oscar buzz, so to speak, due to the repetitive theme of the dialogue but nevertheless meaningful nature and its colourful and easy-going backgrounds. However, there are quite a number of hit and miss aspects that reside within The Help where certain techniques saved it, but in others made it an overrated disappointment. So, on the positive side of things, The Help manages to be a 50% success due to the absolutely outstanding acting from its ensemble cast (particularly Davis and Spencer), but the other 50% suffers from its rather severe flaws.

When observing racism as a theme of cinema, there’s quite a wide range of stories to put together ab” read more
