I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, first of all, I have to admit that I didn't know much about Ernest Hemingway before watching this movie but, apparently, his life could definitely provide some material to make a very good movie. Unfortunately, this movie however didn't really work out, I'm afraid. The first mistake they made was to constantly mix some real vintage documentary footage with some fake footage and with the rest of the movie. I mean, it could have been a nice gimmick if they used it once but they kept going back and forth from black and white to full color over and over again and this trick became so annoying after a while. I guess they wanted to do something similar to what was done in 'Forrest Gump' but in this classic, it was done with much more subtlety and 20 years later, this effect is not so impressive anymore. Concerning the rest of the movie, sure Hemingway and Gellhorn were some really interesting characters but the makers apparently didn't really know what to do with them. I mean, on one hand, they wanted us to believe that Gellhorn was a strong woman who made her career thanks to her own skills but, time and time again, they showed that she couldn't have done much without Hemingway's help. Anyway, in spite of its flaws, I still think it was a decent watch but they could have deliver something much better with this material.
