Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A full-fledged song-and-dance, tap-and-jazz musical, Damien Chazelle s GUY AND MADELINE ON A PARK BENCH boldly recasts the 1940 s MGM musical tradition in a gritty, verite style, resulting in an exuberant celebration of romance and music, and one of the most critically-acclaimed films of the year. Guy and Madeline have been dating for three months, but the excitement of first love has faded. When another woman catches Guy s eye, sparks fly spelling the end of Guy and Madeline s romance. But when things don t work out quite as planned, Guy must decide whether to try to win Madeline back even if it may be too late. Their story unfolds in a world of jazz and tap, featuring original music composed by Justin Hurwitz and recorded by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra.

Review

"A magical amalgam of Jean-Luc Godard, Miles Davis, Morris Engel and 'The Umbrellas of Cherbourg." --John Anderson, Variety

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film May 3, 2011
Format:DVD
Featuring catchy original tunes, inspiring improvised performances, and beautiful camerawork that highlights the well-known and hidden sides of Boston, G&M is a joy to watch -- a whimsical escape from everyday life into a place where breaking out into song is the most natural thing in the world. Anyone who enjoys musicals, jazz, romance, people, movies, or life should see this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Charming Throwback September 8, 2011
By Wannabe
Format:DVD
"Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench" is a delightful and charming film with music, song, and dance.

I really enjoyed it even though it wasn't quite what I expected from the previews I saw. It plays very much like a European film from the 50's or 60's. It also struck me that the film in many ways evokes the spirit and style of jazz music, which plays an integral part in the film. All of this adds up to something that might be a bit strange for people used to the typical American style of narrative storytelling. But I went with it and it worked for me. Moreover, the direction is both raw and adventurous. The actors are very appealing in their portrayals of flawed characters most people probably wouldn't be clamoring to go out on a date with in real life. And the songs become stuck in your head.

Kudos to writer/director Damien Chazelle for having the confidence to make this film in such an off-beat yet assured way. I hope we see another film from him soon, as I'm interested in seeing how his style evolves after this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amateurish but ballsy February 28, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was unapologetically rough around the edges and at times amateurish, but it had a lot of balls and for that I respected it a great deal.
