I write shitty reviews, don't believe me? read them.
Jesus, what a film, still trying to pick up my jaw. I have never seen anything like this before nor will you ever see something like it again, had me in tears so many times. Main character goes from this young innocent boy to seeing so much shit happen to himself and his fellow countrymen, he comes out looking 30 years older. Harrowing, painful to watch, sad, realistic.
Imagine a 1940's musical set in modern times, black and white, gritty hand held camera techniques. This is what you get when you watch Guy And Madeline On A Park Bench, a heartfelt love story about a musician who leaves his girlfriend for another. Guy uses his trumpet to speak his feelings and Madeline sings and dances hers, nicely choreographed on her part and amazing trumpet playing on his. It's definitely a mumblecore type of film and it's amazing that it works out in the musical aspects. Really cool film, looking for more work by Damien Chazelle in the near future.
