Movie Reviews of YOU WILL BE MY SON, THANKS FOR SHARING and A SINGLE SHOT by Howard Casner

You Will Be My Son revolves around a father (played by The Prophet and The Beat that My Heart Skipped’s Niels Arestrup, France’s Edward G. Robinson) who owns a vineyard that has a history and reputation second to few, and his son (played by Lorant Deutsch) who the father doesn’t love because the son just doesn’t have it in him to be the face of the wine company.    At first, the movie feels as if it’s going to be one of those been there/done that father/son dysfunctional stories that always seem to have more meaning for the filmmakers than the audience (and often makes me run screaming from the theater).  Because of this, the first third is a little hard going.


But then Paul, the father, does something.  When the manager of the estate is given six months to live, Paul goes behind his back and tells the manager’s son, shoe fetishist Philippe (who works at Francis Ford Coppola’s vineyard in the U.S.), and Philippe immediately flies back (about the only person who is perhaps portrayed here as meaner than Paul is Coppola himself whose winery won’t give Philippe time off to visit his dying father and fires him when he decides to go anyway—I’m not sure I really bought it, but it was kinda fun watching the French stick it to the U.S. in such a sneaky, underhanded way).  At this point, it becomes clear what the movie is going to be about (though it might help to know a little about French inheritance laws) and the nastiness begins, as does all the real enjoyment.


The screenplay by director Gilles Legrand (mainly known over here as a producer, including such films as Micmacs, The Widow of Saint-Pierre and  Ridicule), Laure Gasparotto and Delphine de Vigan could have used a touch more Douglas Sirk melodrama (it’s all a bit too subtle at times) and I’m not convinced that Deutsch was the best choice for the wimpy son (I mean, he’s such a drama queen one finally begins to sympathize with the father—that might have been the point, but Legrand doesn’t quite pull it off as far as I’m concerned).   But it’s set against some of the loveliest French countryside you’ll see in some time and Arestrup and Patrick (La lectrice) Chesnais (as the manager) are first rate.


Overall, a very neat, effective and perverse little family melodrama with quite a few twists and turns that is highly satisfactory.   See it with your first born.



Thanks For Sharing is a movie about sex addiction that only wants to cuddle.  I’m not sure I see the point.  It revolves around three men (Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins and Josh Gad) who are all in the same support group and whose stories unwind in just about the formulaic way you think they will.   Everyone is very sincere and works very hard and the three leads, along with the significant others in their lives (Gwyneth Paltrow, Pink and Joely Richardson), say their lines as if they were written by Oscar Wilde (it wasn’t—screenplay by director Stuart Blumberg and Matt Winston—Blumberg also wrote that other Mark Ruffalo starrer, The Kids Are All Right—I’m not convinced this is a step forward).  But no matter how sincere everyone is, nothing can hide the fact that the whole thing is rather routine, bland and boring.  It’s the sort of movie about addiction that actually makes you want to go out and have a drink.



A Single Shot is one of those movies about someone finding either drugs or money and what happens as a result.  Movies like this (A Simple Plan, Shallow Grave) are usually described as movies that do absolutely nothing, but do it very, very well.  A Single Shot, unfortunately, with all its strengths, only manages to do it somewhat well.


But those strengths are often quite remarkable.  Director David M. Rosenthal and writer Matthew F. Jones have created an incredibly convincing small town mountain world where everyone knows everybody.  The daily details of this minor municipality have an incredibly realistic feel to them.  And both Rosenthal and Jones create a strong mood of despair: it never seems to do anything but rain and no matter how much wide shot country is shown, it all feels very claustrophobic.


The movie stars Sam Rockwell and he, along with the rest of the cast (William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Kelly Reilly, Melissa Leo, Ted Levine and Jason Isaacs), give remarkable performances.  Almost no one is recognizable behind their scruffy beards; weather beaten, lived in looks; and less than Walmart quality clothes.  And they all sport accents so convincing, there is many a time when you can’t understand a word they’re saying, which is too bad, because Jones has given all the characters often strikingly beautiful lines full of local color, equipped with full blooded colloquialisms and figures of speech.


In the end, the story never really quite comes together in a satisfyingly dramatic whole.  Part of this may be because the set up and execution is pretty familiar with a plot that’s not particularly clever.  And it’s a little hard to empathize with Rockwell’s character, as well as he plays him, because he never seems to be as stupid as he acts with this new found money (it’s a bit difficult to believe he doesn’t know he won’t attract attention by suddenly flouting hundred dollar bills around).  And the menace to the characters involved often seems just a bit too vague; in fact, the middle section feels a little slow in going anywhere.


But one could do far, far worse.  One could go see Prisoners.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Thanks for your publication. What I want to comment on is that when looking for a good online electronics store, look for a website with full information on important factors such as the security statement, basic safety details, any payment methods, as well as other terms as well as policies. Often take time to look into the help along with FAQ pieces to get a better idea of how a shop operates, what they can do for you, and exactly how you can make use of the features.

  14. One important issue is that when you are searching for a student loan you may find that you’ll want a co-signer. There are many situations where this is true because you may find that you do not employ a past history of credit so the lender will require that you’ve got someone cosign the credit for you. Interesting post.

  15. Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking the time and actual effort to create a really good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

  16. I have figured out some important matters through your site post. One other stuff I would like to talk about is that there are several games available on the market designed specifically for preschool age kids. They involve pattern identification, colors, pets, and models. These normally focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This makes children and kids engaged without feeling like they are studying. Thanks

  17. Hi my loved one! I wish to say that this post is amazing, great written and come with approximately all significant infos. I?d like to look extra posts like this .

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.

  20. I’m pretty pleased to find this web site. I wanted to thank you for ones time just for this wonderful read!! I definitely liked every little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to see new information in your web site.

  21. One other thing to point out is that an online business administration training course is designed for individuals to be able to easily proceed to bachelors degree programs. The 90 credit education meets the lower bachelor education requirements when you earn your associate of arts in BA online, you may have access to up to date technologies on this field. Some reasons why students would like to get their associate degree in business is because they’re interested in the field and want to obtain the general knowledge necessary in advance of jumping right into a bachelor diploma program. Thanks alot : ) for the tips you really provide in your blog.

  22. Spot on with this write-up, I actually assume this web site wants much more consideration. I?ll probably be again to learn rather more, thanks for that info.

  23. Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your site. You have some really great articles and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Kudos!

  29. Thanks for your post. I would really like to write my opinion that the tariff of car insurance differs from one scheme to another, since there are so many different issues which play a role in the overall cost. As an example, the model and make of the automobile will have a tremendous bearing on the charge. A reliable aged family vehicle will have a more economical premium than the usual flashy racecar.

The infection may start in the chest region and pass on to other body parts.
