Note: The following post contains no significant advances of the plot or the end of the film.
Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal presents us the words, a movie with a fairly innovative narrative line, starring Bradley Cooper, Dennis Quaid and Jeremy Irons (very interesting). Tells the story…no, it’s difficult to say it has a single story but, in a basic line, could be said that tells the story of Rory an aspiring writer who is looking to publish his first novel but the success is elusive, finally when the triumph arrives…not necessarily will be due to his own words.
The tape is quite pleasant, has a narrative like “story within the story” that makes it fun and interesting, the performances are good, but in general there is a flaw (Zerorojo still not identified) that does not allow the viewer to connect to the drama included in the plot… perhaps it may be due to there’s not enough time to examine the characters, as happens in movies such as The Red Violin. Viewers have the last word about this.
The change of colors marks determinately the change of narration, going from neutrals to the blues passing by the sepia, this gives a lot of interest to the composition and photography, as well as the soundtrack, composed by Marcelo Zarvos: music emphatic but soft.
It is difficult to recommend this film, not because its history is bad, nor its actors, it’s difficult because it could be more intense, the argument is for this purpose, and still it’s not. However, is more productive to watch The Words than any teen-movie, that’s for sure. So to not divagate, Zerorojo recommends it, ¿why? Because you don’t get bored, amuses and also attempts to be fresh through his narrative.
