Nineteen ninety-nine was an outstanding year for adaptations of major
literary works, but of all the great books that came to the screen last
year, this is my favorite. John Irving's novel and adaptation is one of the
most complete stories I can remember in many years. It is poignant,
exhilarating, and astutely human in its scope, presenting a myriad of human
emotions and experiences.
Often, when a story attempts to cross genres so broadly, it fails from lack
of depth or insufficiency of the writer or director to meet the variable
demands of such a wide-ranging treatment. This film was a comedy, a
tragedy, a romance, a human-interest story, a character study, and a period
piece, and each element was excellently done.
This was all accomplished without sacrificing the philosophical and
emotional depth Irving imbues in all his works. Irving weaves a strong
moral into this story; that rules need to be questioned and that being human
is not so easily codified. He revisits this theme repeatedly, with each
character facing dilemmas regarding societal and personal rules that are
difficult to reconcile in the given situations.
If there is one thing that stands out about this story, it is its human
realism. These are ordinary people struggling with problems we all face.
We come to have affection for almost all of them, and can identify with
their tribulations. Although the story is excessively sentimental and
fatalistic, it reminds us that life is complicated and doesn't always turn
out the way we plan or hope.
From a filmmaking perspective, we could not have asked more from Lasse
Hallstrom. Known most in the U.S. for his direction of What's Eating
Gilbert Grape', Hallstrom has been making wonderful films in Europe for
almost twenty years. However, this film will certainly go down as his
finest work. In the featurette on the DVD, he said that when he goes to
Blockbuster with his daughter and sees it on the shelf, he will have a
feeling of pride; and well he should.
This motion picture was beautifully filmed with rich cinematography,
breathtaking locations, and precise period props and costumes. However, the
greatest achievement for Hallstrom, working in concert with Irving, was to
orchestrate a large cast in such a way that no character seemed
insignificant. Hallstrom took great care to do enough development of each
character (often just visually without any dialogue) that he made us care
for each of them. He gave the film an emotional depth and breadth that is
difficult to achieve in two hours. His work with the children in the
orphanage was superb, bringing forth their innocence and enthusiasm without
minimizing their plight.
The acting was uniformly outstanding. Tobey Maguire infused Homer with the
right combination of idealism, naiveté and inner strength to make him an
unassuming but powerful lead. Charlize Theron continues to impress me with
her acting ability. Besides her enchanting girl-next-door attractiveness,
she showed terrific range in a character that at first seemed shallow, but
later proved to be quite complex.
Michael Caine has had a legendary career spanning close to half a century.
He has long been one of my favorite actors. His performance here was
powerful and well deserving of the acclaim he received. Dr. Larch was an
extremely complex character; egotistical, self-abusive, manipulative and
recalcitrant, yet a saintly, self-sacrificing and loving crusader for the
good of the children. Caine's ability to span that range was
Finally, I have the highest praise for Delroy Lindo as Mr. Rose, the orchard
foreman. Lindo's bright smile and enthusiasm created a rock solid character
with charm, strength and simple wisdom. He captures our admiration
immediately, and despite his despicable act, we cannot help but pity him in
After having seen all the films that were nominated by the Academy for best
picture last year, I have to say that this was my personal favorite. It
wasn't as flashy as the rest; in fact, this was downright old fashioned in
its approach. They just don't write stories like this anymore, and that's a
shame. I rated it a 10/10. In its quiet way, it captured my
