    The film tries to reach heavy themes: sometimes successfully, other times not so much. In a fantastic cast Jodie Foster is the MVP.

    Very good actors. The casting though is not working.
    A bad "Whos afraid of Virgina Woolf"-wannabee.
    And a very well played simple story.
    The Cowans should have gone in the tenth minute.

    Totalmente recomendada! Polansky se disfraza de de Woody Allen y retrata la neurosis de 4 personajes al filo de la implosion nerviosa
    Impecables actuaciones, Christopher Waltz INCREÍBLE

    These characters and their behavior are better viewed as caricature than as realistic. I think the film is more enjoyable if you look at it from that perspective, and don't expect it to be realistic. Everything is too exaggerated and the character types are too clear cut for it to work on a realistic level. As caricature and as a sort of allegory, however, it works quite well. I really enjoyed the film.

    Excelente. Dos matrimonios reunidos en una habitación para hablar sobre un problema común, sus hijos se han peleado. Todo transcurriría normalmente si no fuera porque el ser humano es violento por naturaleza y lo que en un principio parece una conversación civilizada va degradándose hasta límites insospechados.

    Una interesantísima película que nos muestra el lado más agresivo del ser humano en una situación de lo más cotidiana.

    Both riveting and hilarious, Roman Polanski's Carnage is brilliant to watch, utilising the considerable talents of its top-notch cast (particularly Kate Winslet and Jodie Foster) to make a smart comment on the modern world.

    Impressively average. On pretty much every level, this is merely okay. No idea why it's called CARNAGE. A more apt title would be DISAGREEMENTS.

    It astounds me - even more so on rewatch - that a film that, aside from the opening and closing shots, basically only takes place in the living room of an apartment (occasionally moving out to the hallway and brief moments throughout other parts of the home) with four people bickering at one another for 80 minutes, can be so intriguing and consistently entertaining. It's quite impressive. Roman Polanski's spot-on direction, the interesting dialogue and, of course, the excellent performances…

    Second film in a row I've watched where folk are trapped in a house. Unlike Ethan Hawke and family, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz want to escape, but keep getting dragged back in by an escalating parade of food and drink. First a quick espresso, then a proper coffee and a cake (or is it pie?), and finally booze, which is where the film really picks up.

    Kate Winslet looks great as a buttoned-up housewife, in a tight white blouse and pencil skirt, until she projectile vomits everywhere. I also liked it when JCR and Waltz square up over different toilet flushes.

    Guaranteed to make you squirm in awkward uncomfortableness, Roman Polanski's Carnage, adapted from a play, sees the bourgeois societal niceties smashed down, as two sets of couples (Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz) meet to amicably discuss a conflict between their sons. The amicability doesn't last long though, as frustrations, anger and prejudices come gushing out, to pretty hilarious results. Polanski doesn't stray far from the stage play origins, but what is essentially 4 people…
