loudandclearreviews.com

Official synopsis: Amanda (Benedetta Porcaroli) has returned home to Italy and her family after a few years studying in Paris. It’s her first summer back and it’s clear the long weeks ahead of her are devoid of any plans. She has no friends (the housekeeper is her closest thing to a confidante), doesn’t get along with her family and generally doesn’t seem to fit in. Her mother reminds her of a friend’s daughter whom Amanda was close with as a child.

And so, with little else to do and no one to entertain her, Amanda decides to seek her out. Rebecca (Galatéa Belluggi) has not only stayed at home since they were last in contact, her agoraphobia has kept her mostly inside it. The combination of both women’s neuroses only accentuates Amanda’s desire to rekindle the friendship, even if it’s a situation that no one seems likely to profit from.

FINAL CUT (COUPEZ!)

Director: Michel Haznavicius
U.S. Release: July 14
U.K. Release: out now on digital and on demand!

Final Cut (Coupez!) Film Review – Loud And Clear Reviews
Film Review: Michel Hazanavicius’ zombie remake Final Cut (Coupez!) is quite fun – but is a missed opportunity to do something fresh.
loudandclearreviews.com

Official synopsis: The opening night selection of last year’s Cannes Film Festival was this wacky horror comedy, a remake of Shin’ichirô Ueda’s cult hit One Cut of the Dead. It follows a director (Romain Duris) making a live, single-take, low-budget zombie flick in which the cast and crew, one by one, actually turn into zombies. Oscar® winner Michel Hazanavicius milks the film’s hilarious and meta-to-the-max premise for all it’s worth, while also crafting a sly love letter to the art of filmmaking.

What’s on screen unfolds in typical cheesy B-movie fashion, while the off-screen hijinks offer a celebration of the unpredictable and collaborative nature of film sets. Featuring a hysterically unhinged turn by Oscar® nominee Berenice Bejo and serving up blood-soaked high farce par excellence, Final Cut revels in its affectionate embrace of goofy genre fun.

When the chance to win presents itself, the women seize it.

However, just before their trip, their old friend Chrissie (Laura Linney) arrives in Ballygar for her Mother’s funeral, dampening their good mood and well-laid plans. The women secure tickets and set out on the journey that they hope will change their lives, with Chrissie joining in place of her mother. The glamor and sophistication of Chrissie, who has just returned from a nearly 40-year exile in the United States, are not her only difficult traits. Old wounds are reopened along the way, forcing the women to confront their pasts even as they travel in search of a miracle. Deep wounds from the past can only be healed by the curative power of love and friendship.
