THIS IS A ROMANTIC COMEDY, sorry but I expected a black comedy for some reason. (I watched it after only seeing a few pics)Well with Pitt who has proved he can act (12 Monkeys, Kalifornia Johnny Suede etc..) but has proved he can be pants (Seven years in Tibet, Cool World etc..) So I was expecting good things.
Hopkins well what can I say.. he da man! Always makes a role interesting.
So we get to the film. Pitt plays death, in human form & falls in love. And the story is basically about that.
It is quite an understated film with subtle flourishes, the script is fine, I chuckled a couple of times. The performances are good, this is Pitt doing well again. same with Hopkins.
BUT you have to remember that this is a film to go with your partner to.
This aint a great film, Its enjoyable sure, but it seemed to hold my interest completley. (I had no trouble going for a piss halfway into it)So I would say its a video film to watch on a rainy night with your partner. OK?
