That was an excellent one.
Although it has its amusing moments, in eneral the plot does not convince.
It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
Espectacular, vale la pena verla, muy parecida a lejos del paraíso
I think they were drawn to each other the first time they met in the store, the first moment their eyes caught, Therese was behooved. And it shows that carol was attracted to her when she started asking her personal questions. Like "what did you want when you were 4?" And it seems like no one asks Therese these kind of questions judging by the way her eyes refused to meet carol's. Carol was eyeing Therese every moment she could get just to savior her, or rather, the moment. And she wanted to see her more. So I think she left her gloves there on purpose just as an excuse to see her again. When they went out for lunch, their chemistry is so well after only a few minutes of conversation, Carol was so willing to know about Therese. you could tell that carol was kind of suspicious of Therese's sexuality when she said that she was a. "Very strange girl". And that she was "out of this world". After that, they show a scene where Therese writes Carols name and when she first met her. I think that means that she likes would like to remember her.that moment where she went to the Times office with her friend, and when they were talking about attractions, I think that opened her mind a bit. You can't help but think that they've shared a pretty special moment in the car, and Therese would probably think that she REALLY wants to capture carol, not just her beauty, but her kindness, along the fact that she's the first person she ever takes a picture of, she's that special to her already . And when they're back home, she can't help but think that she's also a good mother. When Therese's playing the piano and carol comes and just puts her hands on her shoulder, She becomes a little tense, it's either she's realizing her attraction or no one has touched her that gently before. She gets flustered whenever carol asks her personal questions.She witnesses the fight that happens outside between harge and carol and she just highers the volume, respecting their privacy.When she's taking Therese back to the station in the car, you can see how miserable carol looks. And how helpless Therese feels, therefore she cries in the train because she just feels like it's her fault, that she wants to make carol feel better and all.
Acting was not as good as the critics say. It was good, nothing more. Story could have been interesting but meandered nowhere. I really can't feel inspired to say much more about this yawn fest.
For a film about the "love that dare not speak its name" it has a deadened, passionless air to it.I never bought the love/emotion/desperation between Therese and Carol, played by Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett. From the first scene in the department store where Therese worked, I viewed Carol's interest as repulsively predatory and it would have been if the part of Carol was played by a middle aged man.Down to the "erotic" scene in the hotel, which again was lifeless and uninspiring and well, boring, the whole film had a coldness to it, down to the limp dry hair of the main characters: wigs, I would guess.Carol never comes across as a concerned mother, yes she grabs and hugs her kid a lot but does not engage in any meaningful way with her.The cinematography was well done, the 50s scenes for the most part believable.But for a film about passion and undying love, no, this didn't work for me.3 out of 10.
