The greatest movie ever made..!
A brilliant film that helped define a genre
The first reaction I got discovering the title was to think that it should be spiritual otherwise it would have been stupid to put "God" in there.So, when I watched the making-off, I was delighted to see that it was spiritually loaded as it deals with a good-evil fight about a soul. I thought that the story was pretty original, all the more that it's rather unusual in a European production. The writer-director was inspired, had great ideas for depicting hell and heaven and achieved to reunite a interesting cast.Motivated to watch the movie, I fall down quickly. The directing is slow, slug and nothing really happens. It takes nearly twenty minutes to get to the point of meeting the chosen one with his two angels. The spiritual incentives are rather weak as April isn't really good incarnated and Pénélope isn't very devil either. The Rocky syndrome (don't box again otherwise you die) is very peripheral and we are throw in a union fight rather! At least, I waited for the fantastic preview I saw in the making-of when Penélope lip-synches a Spanish song enthusiastically while dressing to get out. Well, the movie chose another take and it lost all the punch and sensuality that Penélope gave in the making-off.I wouldn't say that the road to Hell is paved with all those good intentions but it's definitely not as successful that I expected and it's one of the few movies I know where the making-off is actually better than the movie itself!
Hi I need your help. I'm from Italian i saw this film a lot of years ago and i'm fall in love for it. Unfortunately i can't explain well what this film means for me 'cause i can't speak English.. anyway. i need your help 'cause i'm trying to find the first song at start of film...when be in the tunnel with the lights in movement. i hope that you understand what i've write... and i hope in your help. so... i think that,,, this film is really good. When I saw Penelope Cruz to impersonate an emissary of the devil already I had understood that I could not lose this film!Then,after i've seen her sexual tendencies.. she is a man in a body of woman.. and that woman!!! It remains an interesting story, that goes outside from every diagram, distant from the clichè of the classic struggle between well and badly: happens in fact that an angel and the devil (represented from one soft and sweet singing and a bad boy/girl) live against and together with the same time: is a story dated some I annex first, a little bit above all the desire to maintain the balance. A good film to see..also for look in funny way what happens up there..
When the leaders of Heaven and Hell, Marina D'Angelo (Fanny Ardant) and Davenport (Gael García Bernal) respectively, decide to fight for the soul of the decadent boxer Manny (Demián Bichir), they send their best agents to Earth. The singer Lola Nevado (Victoria Abril) from Heaven and the former gangster Carmen Ramos (Penélope Cruz) from Hell are assigned to get his soul, and they have a tough dispute to accomplish their mission."Sin Noticias de Dios" is one of most original comedies I have ever seen. The story is very funny, ironical and charming, with splendid lines and dialogs in the screenplay. The direction is very precise; the wonderful cast, with a very charming and sexy Penélope Cruz; a stunning (as usual) Victoria Abril singing in a perfect Portuguese; an elegant and classy Fanny Ardant; and a very funny Gael García Bernal, has also the participation of Demián Bichir (from "Sexo Pudor Y Lágrimas", "Santitos" and "In the Time of the Butterflies"), Elsa Pataky (from "Beyond Re-Animator" and "Romasanta") and an uncredited last scene with Javier Bardem. The vision of Heaven as Paris, Hell as an American prison (could be a South-American one certainly they are worse) and the Hell's administrator as an American president in his car with his body-guards are absolutely hilarious. Victoria Abril singing "I'm Evil" and Penélope Cruz dancing an extremely sexy dance are delightful. I highly recommend this movie, which has two (2) wins and seventeen (17) nominations of festivals, for those viewers that like a refreshing and very different comedy. My vote is eight.Title (Brazil): "Sem Notícias de Deus" ("Without News From God")
I had pretty high expectations for this film, mainly owing to the interesting cast. But seeing the movie.. man, have I ever been so disappointed!Sin noticias de Dios is a very pointless, pretentious showcase of previous achievements of popular cinema. There's everything from modern reading of Christian religion (Dogma did this much better and even that flick sucked) to lesbian love (Bound, anyone?), but still it is missing its own point of view and especially any coherence. I can very well imagine how this movie gets five stars in women's magazines and trendy periodicals.So, if goofy shallowness turns you on, this is your movie, but if you have any respect for yourself and movies with actual content, there are a whole better films to see.
