Water for Elephants

Director: Francis Lawrence
Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, Cristopher   Waltz, Hal Holbrook

Based on the acclaimed bestseller, Water for Elephants tells the story of Jacob, a veterinary student, who abandons his studies after his parents are killed in a car crash and joins a traveling circus as their vet. He soon falls in love with Marlena, the wife of the circus’s owner, August, and main attraction of the show. Jacob and Marlena will be faced with the unstable character and violent tendencies of August.

My opinion:
The movie recreates the 1930s circus atmosphere in an extremely veracious manner.  Christopher Waltz, whom you probably remember from Inglorious Basterds, gives yet another wonderful performance as August. Reese Witherspoon is credible with the then-fashionable platinated blonde look. Robert Pattinson proves that he can successfully play more profound roles. I was particularly impressed by Hal Holbrook’s performance as old Jacob. The movie somewhat reminded me of The Notebook and Titanic and has the same magical vintage atmosphere, although with a different frame story.

Regizor: Francis Lawrence
Distributie: Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, Cristopher   Waltz, Hal Holbrook

            Bazata pe mult-laudatul bestseller, pelicula Apa pentru elefanti spune povestea lui Jacob, un student la medicina veterinara care isi abandoneaza studiile dupa ce parintii sai sunt ucisi in urma unui accident de masina si se angajeaza ca medic veterinar la circ. Curand,  el se indragosteste de Marlena, sotia patronului circului, August si principala atractie a reprezentatiei. Jacon si Marlena vor trebui sa tina piept caracterului instabil si inclinatiilor spre violent ale lui August.

Parerea mea:
Filmul recreeaza atmosfera circului anilor 1930 intr-o maniera extrem de realista. Christopher Waltz, pe care probabil vi-l reamintiti din Inglorious Basters, face un alt rol memorabil ca August. Reese Witherspoon este credibila cu look-ul blond platinat atat de in voga pe atunci. Robert Pattinson dovedeste ca poate interpreta cu succes roluri mai profunde. M-a impresionat in mod special prestatia lui Hal Holbrook, in rolul batranului Jacob. Filmul mi-a reamintit oarecum de The Notebook si Titanic, datorita aceleiasi atmosfere magice vintage, incadrata, insa, intr-o alta poveste-cadru.
