This film has a very interesting back story so I was interested in watching it and I have now seen it and unfortunately though not terrible this film is incredibly forgettable.
The premise of the film is based on a true story that sees a couple hide Jewish refugees in there zoo from the nazis. Jessica chastain plays the lead in the film and this isn't one of her best performances, she is clearly passionate about the role and she does her best with what she is given. But she overacts all the way through this movie and she feels very wooden and not real at all.
Her emotional scenes usually come across as forced and very much like it is a script and not her if that makes sense. The supporting cast is a mixed bag, I liked the actor who plays her husband I thought he gave the best performance in the film but even he starts to overact towards the end of the film. Nobody else in the film gets any important screen time so when the film asks you to care you just don't which hurts the film.
As mentioned before the story has an interesting concept and It is a bit interesting to watch and wonder how these people did what they did. But there are so many problems, there are aspects of the film that aren't expanded on enough and aspects that are focused on too much. It is a highly predictable film which doesn't give any surprises at all.
The script has some decent drama with some particularly uncomfortable scenes that work well. Though there is absolutely no humour or life in this film even when these people are meant to be happy it just feels unreal. The style of the film looks good with the sets and animals especially coming across well, but this films pacing is really poor and just feels boring.
Also this film has a really confusing way of showing time and how much has passed and it made it hard to follow. Overall this film isn't that bad it just is really forgettable and not worth a watch as you won't remember it. The story itself is very intriguing, and could make for a great, interesting and touching film.
Unfortunately, this movie fails on two main aspects, and it fails so badly that makes the movie barely watchable. The most obvious is how unnatural the imposed accent while speaking English feels. It constantly takes the viewer's focus away from the actor's performances, and makes nearly every scene feel awkward and like it is made for a children's movie, which is in stark contrast to the main theme of the film.
Most importantly, the directing of the film is soap opera-like, where the characters constantly have to verbally express their thoughts and emotion, and explain situations through scripted dialogue, instead of letting good performances and good direction convey them.
In way too many scenes, I found myself thinking about how more impactful the scene would have been if some dialogue was cut. In many cases this was so brutally obvious, it felt like a child was directing this film. Case in point: A woman puts her son to bed and when she goes to close the window curtains observes something atrocious take place outside.
The atrocity itself and the woman's reaction are enough to impact the audience. But then we are treated with the dialogue "Mama, who's shooting? This is basic stuff here, we know they are shooting, we just saw it. The only thing this next dialogue contributes to is to dilute the feeling of the scene. And this thing goes on throughout the film, where things happen and then people talk about the things we already saw happen.
I literally have seen better directing in the The Bold and the Beautiful! At the end, it just bores and leaves the audience unengaged. Except if you're my grandma. What a wasted opportunity! I was disappointed with this movie. Jessica Chastain was difficult to hear, using a Polish accent that was not particularly good. The underlying story is an inspiring one. Unfortunately, every scene where a Nazi materialized did not convey any real sense of danger. The music made you think that a very emotional scene was about to unfold.
Wrong, again and again. The re-appearance of her husband at the end of the movie was as formulaic as one could imagine. Hold this film up to a real Holocaust movie Schlindler's List and it doesn't do very well.
If you like seeing animals being executed for 30 minutes you are a sick individual. Of COURSE we should remember the holocaust and do everything we should to educate and impress on future generations what they must avoid.
But this film is nowhere as near the quality or impact of Schindler's List or The Pianist. So from what I've been able to read - the film is a fair summary of a true story. Warsaw Zoo bombed at the start of WWII, zoo converted to a pig farm, zoo director and his wife hide Jews who have escaped from the Warsaw Ghetto, war ends and spoiler - so I won't go there.
