Movie Reviews

Not Red Dwarf
Michael A. Marunchak | Chicago | 10/20/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is more of a complaint than a review. Note to Amazon - the title of this movie is "The Red Dwarf", not "Red Dwarf"."Red Dwarf" is a wonderfully funny British Sci-fi comedy, whereas "The Red Dwarf" is this weird French movie.You can't imagine how irritated and annoyed I was when I did a "successful" search for "Red Dwarf" and turned up this thing.A little more accuracy in the titles would be appreciated.Thank you."
Still Red Dwarf
Andrew Magowan | BELFAST, CO DOWN United Kingdom | 12/18/2001

"Echoing the previous reviewers annoyance,i too was delighted at the prospect of a Red Dwarf DVD,but alas,i was deceived!I somehow doubt this French film has characters such as Rimmer,The Cat,or Lister!Again,this film is called THE RED DWARF,and not Red Dwarf!!Smeg!"
Lucien's search for companionship?
Kim Anehall | Chicago, IL USA | 01/21/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Red Dwarf is a fine cinematic experience about Lucien, a withdrawn man short in stature and longing for affection, who writes letters for parties in divorce cases for his law firm. This is a tragic position for Lucien, since he deems himself plagued in regards to affectionate relationships. One day he meets the acrobatic orphan Isis, who lives in a circus while also befriending Paola Bendoni, an important client for his law firm. Lucien initiates a love affair with Paola, but he is rejected as Paola is only interested in a lustful adventure. This is something new to Lucien and he finds himself lost in the swirl of emotions trailing the rejection. After having regained some self-esteem, he quits his job and pursues his fatherly care for the young acrobat. Red Dwarf is a tragedy that captivates the mind as the sorrow of Lucien is depicted on the silver screen, and it provides several lesson for the viewers to think about. Le Moine has also mixed a number of controversial issues into the film that will keep the viewers feeling a flow to the film and provide an opportunity for self scrutiny of beliefs."
Sometimes the edge of sanity is where true greatness lies
a 16 y/o viewer | Omaha, NE United States | 10/28/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"dont believe what some of the other reviewers are saying this is truly one of the best films to deal with the hardships of being in a world that isnt suited for you. it is one of the bleakest yet poignantly executed studies of a man who is on the "edge" that i have ever seen. contrary to what some viewers are saying there is resolve in the end you just have to find it. at times it will make you laugh with its subtle humor and at others you will feel empathy and sadness. it is a perfect blend of comedy and tragedy with an ending that is very sublime but ends the film on a happy note. in short i would recommend this film to anyone who can deal with a film that isnt loaded with special effects and just relys on its ambience and characters to deliver a unique and enthralling cinematic experience. viva la liberati."
