An average movie

Posted : 3 years, 4 months ago on 13 May 2016 09:12

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this movie but since it won 6 Academy awards (including the one for Best Picture) and since it was also included in the list ‘1001 movies you must see before you die’, I thought I should check it out. Well, to be honest, I really had a hard time to care about the damned thing after all. Indeed, even though the beginning scenes were supposed to be sweet and gentle, I thought there were just too fluffy and even borderline silly, to be honest. For example, you had this deal with the roses competition which was seriously tedious. Then, the main plot was not bad but still nothing really amazing and, on top of that, it turned out to be some massive propaganda which was rather disappointing. In my opinion, the whole thing feels nowadays terribly dated and I’m rather amazed it is still getting so much credit nowadays.  At least, I have to admit it, Greer Garson and Teresa Wright were both really lovely but it was certainly not enough. To conclude, in spite of its flaws, I have to admit it, it was still a decent watch but, even though it was a big critical and commercial success when it was released, it was rather difficult for me to take this movie really seriously.
