This must be the place (Umberto Contarello, Paolo Sorrentino)
Starring: Sean Penn, Frances McDormand, Judd Hirsch, Eve Hewson, Kerry Condon
My thoughts on this film: Sean Penn was very well characterised and his acting was good, although I am not really a fan. The film also had a few funny moments and Cheyenne really reminded me of Ozzy Osborne. However, this movie was a little slow, some scene changes were too fast and seemed a bit out of place; The music kept on appearing out of nowhere and did not really seem to have a reason for being there, or maybe I just did not follow; At times, I almost fell asleep; I did not understand part of the story and, although I love movies about the Holocaust, this one did not seem to have a background to it, as if the writers just wanted the Holocaust in there for no particular reason, with no grounds for such decisions.
