This ELEGY is not mournful.. its Captivating ! its a work of Art :)- adapted frm Philip Roth's novel called "A Dying Animal"
Frequent bad movies and a couple of recommendations later, i kinda manage to grab a DVD to chek out this film and gawdddd! am i amazed ?!?!?! This sure is a work of Art. You have to give it all to Ben Kinsley's powerful act as the Prof David Kepesh.. he is an all time best in this. Penelope Cruze with her awestrucking sex appeal is a treat to watch. She sure is a camereman's delight! David Kepesh is all dumbstruck by her stunning beauty and refers to her body as a "work of Art" The story is told in simple fold yet the emotions, the sensibilities and moments are kept intact. The movie sure grows on you and makes you yearn for that innate desire which we all , at times succumb to.. ! It chills thrills enchants and captivates you for those few moments. It sure makes my day good when i watch a worthy enuff film to talk about and share. Pls dont miss this movie. Do catch it when you have time. For once this is worth it !! Ben Kinsley and Penelope Cruze at their romantic best.
Well, its therefore obvious that i give this a 3.5 out of 5. Watch this for brilliant camerawork, crisp direction and for Ben Kinsley.
