Two pairs of parents hold a cordial meeting after their sons are involved in a fight, though as their time together progresses, increasingly childish behavior throws the evening into chaos.
Roman Polanski’s rendition of the Yasmina Reza play “Le Dieu du carnage”.
Ridiculous family/adult fun. Zach fights with his classmate, and splits his face using a stick. In come our beloved parents to save the day…
A powerhouse cast: Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and (lol) John C. Reilly.
Let the “blame game” begin!!! The two couples try to deal with the altercation like “mature” adult, then sparks fly back and forth revealing weaknesses in their character and morals. Tensions and comedy rise when they switch sides and console with each others spouses.
TRIVIA: The film was shot in real time, without breaks and, with the exception of the park scenes, in a single location.
When simple meets rich, do we think less of the other? or are we all just the same? The situation presented is something we can all relate to. And at times serves as a mirror.
The acting was stellar and the pace was relatively fast and kept audiences on their seat. The finale though… was a bit weak and anti-climactic. So is life… the story never does really end, does it?
Overall i thought this was a terrific and entertaining (talkie) comedy of words and childishness. This is a movie about growing up.
