Bon Voyage

Atmosphere, care, but not many thrills

(Edit) 24/04/2006

Bon Voyage takes us through the early months of the Nazi invasion of France and a web of seemingly chance relationships that mesh neatly together around some of those key events. A carefully-made film, with real atmosphere and attention to period detail, but it seems to assume you know roughly what is going on more widely, no doubt most French do, but I suspect not many Brits.

Enjoyable, especially if you can follow it in French rather than read the subtitles.

The Fighting Temptations

Disappointing

(Edit) 24/04/2006

Not really a family film, it drags too often and doesn't seem to know whether it's aimed at tweenagers, gospel musicos or Beyonce fans.

Some good musical items but thin on comedic moments and not a patch on, say, Sister Act.

Mean Girls

Much cleverer than it looks - or than your teenage daughters may realise!

(Edit) 24/04/2006

Enjoyable enough in itself as an early-teen chick-flick', this film is actually much cleverer than it looks - or than your teenage girls may realise!

The DVD extras show how this is actually a drama based on some well-researched theory about group behaviour amongst high-school girls. Interesting, clever, well-acted and fun - well worth a rental.
