Years ago, when bionicles first hit the marketplace, and my boys discovered them,we always thought they would make a great film. With CGI advances,they are now here. Even if you do not know anything about the Bionicle line of toys, you will like this.
In terms of plot, Mata Nui, a great and powerful ruler at one time, helps win a monumental battle. The local population asks him to help fight the Skrall and Bone Hunters. There is bionicle action, great animation, and and excellent plot. For those familiar with bionicles, the characters transform well to film especially when it comes to their high range of motion. In one scene, Michael Dorn voices a character, and as in all animated films, reflects a Worf like pose. It would take a Trek minded viewer to see that one though.
On the DVD, the bonus features include "Bye Bye Babylon", "Metus Revenge" ending, a character gallery, and deleted scens. The embossed cover is pretty cool too.
With every film these get better. We look forward to the rest.
Janda portrayes two characters here: herself and Marta.
In both cases she delivers amazing performance. Her monologues based on her personal life are moving and won't leave you indifferent.
It's a quiet and very modest enterprise about life, love, death, sadness, emptiness after loss. With marvellous pictures, direction and music. Kudos for all actors in supporting roles.
The title of the movie gives us an idea of what the movie is about and where it will take us. Tatarak (Sweet Rush) is a plant that grows along rivers that can smell fragrant when rubbed between one's fingers but like death when the reeds are crushed.
Mrs. Marta (Krystyna Janda) lives in a small town somewhere in Poland. Her husband is a doctor (Jan Englert) who keeps himself busy with his work but she never complains. Their two sons passed away in the war and there is an element of sadness still in them because of that. Living in a town where everyone knows each other by name, Mrs. Marta befriends a young man who is younger than her sons would have been. Their meetings give her a new energy but their time together is short and ends unexpectadly.
Janda's monologue gives us insight into her life, which also has parallels with some parts of the story. Her story is tragically sad but also gripping. Considering that Krystyna Janda's acting debut was in Wajda's Man of Marbel (1977), it is fitting that over twenty years later they work together again on such a personally meaningful film. Tatarak is dedicated to Krystyna Janda's late husband, Edward Klosinski, who was the cinematographer for Man of marble and dozens of other Polish films.
