About the Film
Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning star in Academy Award winner Sofia Coppola's witty and moving story about the special bond between a father and his daughter. Actor Johnny Marco (Dorff) is leading the fast-paced lifestyle of a tabloid celebrity. He’s comfortably numb with his life of women and pills when his 11-year-old daughter, Cleo (Fanning), unexpectedly arrives at his room at Hollywood’s legendary Chateau Marmont hotel. Their time together encourages Johnny to re-question his life in ways he never expected.
It is actually a bad movie
I started to watch this movie being convinced I will enjoy Ms Coppola's directing touch, esthetically refined photography, great music etc.....Then, I really, really did my best to like it as the movie sluggishly evolves into....a great nothingness. Ms Coppola does not master the art of slow movie, so this is a pain to watch. You just want to press forward in the middle of each scenes. It would be bearable if the photography was special, it is not. There is almost no soundtrack or dialogues. Just boring silence and the few lines the actors get to deliver are flat and carry no emotions.
This is a piece of autobiographic work certainly interesting for Ms Coppola's therapist to view and maybe her father too I guess, but if you are neither her shrink nor her daddy, this is actually just a very bad movie.
Loved Lost in Translation, but this movie was anti-climactic to the point that I wanted itching to walk out of the theatre. Won't watch it again. I suggest not wasting your money.
"Somewhere" is a beautiful piece of work. I truly admire Ms Coppola's work: "Lost in Translation" is one of my favourite movies.
