It is rare indeed to experience a film that successfully blends comedywith a strong social message. "The Girl in the Café" is just such afilm!The first half of the firm is primarily quirky romantic comedy as apencil-pushing, workaholic diplomat has a chance meeting with a youngwoman, and the couple...
Lawrence, an aide to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, appears to be aconfirmed bachelor. This is a man that lives for his job that evidentlykeeps him away from the realities of life. Lawrence gets more than whathe bargains for when he enters the cafe, at the beginning of the film,and asks Gina, who ...
WOW! I just watched an absolutely brilliant film on HBO tonight. "TheGirl in the Cafe" stars Bill Nighy and Kelly Macdonald in what I amsure will be one of the very best films of the year.The film will, with 100% certainty, appeal to those who loved "Lost inTranslation" and it will probably resonate...
Bill Nihby's Lawrence is such a painfully reserved character to observethat one wonders how he can possibly be effective as a policy wonk.Still, the fusion of this shy man and the girl in the cafe who has allthe time in the world and a charming b.s. meter to boot is a wonder tobehold. This film is c...
Written to coincide with the Africa Lives series on the BBC and alsothe current Make Poverty History campaign, 'The Girl in the Cafe' is asuperlative TV drama that makes its political points without resortingto grandstanding or heavy-handedness.Played to absolute perfection by Bill Nighy and especia...
A beautiful and moving film. I didn't know what it was about as thetrailer didn't reveal much other than the relationship between Nighyand McDonald so I was thinking it was just a gentle love story, aBritish 'Lost in Translation'.But what transpired was so much more than that. I thought the way thee...
This movie is all about plot and character development. The twoprincipal characters have a lot of depth. We learn more personalinformation about them and what motivates them as the story unfolds.The main male character was profoundly lonely and the enigmatic youngwoman was quite fascinating. The plo...
This movie premiered on dutch television tonight (I think it alsopremiered on the BBC and HBO, nicely in time for the next G8 meeting).Without giving anything away with regard to the plot, this is a verynice movie that combines a personal love story with ideals andpolitics. Bill Nighy is absolutely ...
This was a delightful movie. The cinematography was excellent as wasthe acting by Bill Nighy. It is a tender story with a message. Enjoyedthe scenery as well as the characterizations. We stumbled on it on HBOand hope that it will receive a wider audience than just television. Itis very timely. I enj...
Wow - I just hope some important people see this. If sometimes a littleslow and ponderous this is still a great piece of filming. Of course ithas the advantage of Bill Nighy (you all must see more of his work toappreciate him - especially in comic roles) and his co-star, who I willbe looking up on I...
If you've always harbored the fond hope that piously upbraiding worldleaders in person and delivering sanctimonious lectures will magicallysave the world, then this movie is for you. I find it remarkable thatthe character we're meant to identify as the brave, selfless womanconcerned about the welfar...
This review is going to be quick and to the point. This movie wasnothing but a cleverly disguised vehicle to push the writer's agendafor social change. What started out as a cute likable little love storybetween some old dude and and a pretty young girl, turns out to benothing but a freaking commerc...
...for stuff like this any more. I had quite high hopes for this moviewhen I ordered it from Netflix. It seemed like a modestly interestingstory premise (romance and politics), and I really liked KellyMacdonald (Gina) in Trainspotting and positively loved her in GosfordPark, one of my all time favor...
I have a question: Why is it that everyone who's got a job, but no"significant other" (wife, husband, boy/girlfriend..puppy, etc) isalmost always portrayed as a nice, but seething underneathlonely-beyond-words wreck? Think for a moment about that, as before Idecided to write this, I thought I'd peru...
David Yates already impressed me with Sex Traffic and the short motionpicture Rank.It is really hard to point out what makes his movies so interesting.The characters are always nicely worked out but we never get to knowthem fully, some sort of mystery remains. Locations and scenery arewell picked an...
This film concerns a lonely and forlorn civil servant's romanticawakening and then somehow mutates into becoming a political polemic.The movie starts out with a great deal of promise - the atmosphere, thecinematography, the dialogue, the acting, the sound, music.. everythingis perfect, as we're intr...
I have been thinking about this movie all evening and was completelycharmed by the beginning of it, although I had seen some things writtenabout it and was forewarned of its preachy nature. A lonely bureaucratmeets a young woman and awkwardly begins to reach out to her. We knowlittle of him or her, ...
We all know, deep in our selves what we can do that we are not. And wesuspect what that could mean, so there is always a place that a movielike this can touch. If you haven't yet seen it, its a romance in the traditional moviesense, or at least it promises to be. And once it has you in thatgroove, w...
This is an extremely well crafted film by David Yates.It is very rare that I get all passionate about a film. But this is onesuch film that virtually demands that!! Yes, like the previous critic said, it is quirky and it can be lookedupon as a comedy.. but the best thing about it is if you look at t...
Bill Nighy gives another brilliant performance as Lawrence, amiddle-aged, lonely politician who one day, while sneaking out of workfor a short coffee break, comes across a young girl in the café.Cramped conditions lead to him having to share a table with this girl,leading to an awkward series of un...
Was watching a "may to December" rom-com and a dramatic movie brokeout.Solid ,funny and tender performances of the two leads and certainly amust have for fans of their work.A high degree of believability for the summit meeting scenes and dinnerparties suspended disbelief enough for this viewer.The m...
Richard Curtis comes up trumps again. I have never before felt inclinedto place a comment on this site before though I have read many others.This wonderful film is so relevant to today, one week before the G8summit and set at a G8 summit in the very present. Not just a lovestory about 2 people who a...
From start to end have been watching this film in complete amazement,excellent play by the two main characters, a 'must see' film! It is arare combination of a continuing awkward and hilarious situation,against the background of a serious scenery. This is a movie thatshould be seen worldwide, perhap...
Excellent, thought provoking, and leaves you wondering if the membersof the G8 CAN actually manage to 'do the right thing'. I don't supposethere will be a 'Gina' at Gleneagles to make the points she made in TheGirl in the Cafe, but lets hope their consciences are pricked enough todo the job.The stor...
What starts out as an OK romantic comedy degenerates as soon as theleading lady turns into a political crusader. Every time she lecturesthe Chancellor or the P.M., I cringed with embarrassment.Ironically, her social awareness does not extend to chocolate. She eatsall the chocolate in the hotel room,...
