Adoration [not really]

Posted in Kids with tags , , on July 2, 2011 by xi'an

My daughter somehow coerced me into watching Adoration, a 2009 movie by Atom Egoyan. I simply disliked the movie from A to Z! The whole idea to have a constant questioning of what is real and what is fantasy has been used many times in movies (Vertigo is one great example), the role of discussion forums also is far from innovative, and the movie does not present any realistic side to relate to. The actors are far from terrific and the way they relate to one another is formal and artificial. The title stands for a wooden nativity scene involving the magii’s adoration that is somehow central to the movie, along with other unclear religious themes… A complete waste of (my) time! And I think my daughter for once agrees! (This is the second turkey in a row, after Pirates of the Carribean 4…)
