3.0 out of 5 stars 5 out of 10 is phenomenal...in baseball October 27, 2006
Format:DVD
I gave this 3 stars for the five monologues that I did enjoy the most. There are two or three really good performances in this, particularly Lisa Gay Hamilton, Kathy Baker, and Rhada Mitchell in a too-short piece that leads off. The rest are either adequate (Kimberley Williams, Alicia Witt and Rebecca Tilney), or less-than-adequate, and a few just plain bad like Deborah Unger (tremulous and melodramatic). A real clunker for me was the morbid, over-the-top, deadly dull story from Elizabeth Pena's monologue which is also way too long, on top of which she doesn't do it well at all.

Hamilton's monologue is probably the best-written of the ten, the finest balanced including deep humiliation with a willingness to confide this without resorting to bathos. Most I found merely self-conscious and stagy with a tinny theatricality that made the person speaking sound so forced and unconnected to reality that I lost contact. This happened especially in Pena's long, drab monologue about a distinctly unhappy marriage. Why Garcia felt the need to stretch this one out like he did I have no idea, but I finally fast-forwarded (turns out I was two seconds from the end of it anyway) and got to Baker's which restored some freshness and balance and gave a better ending to the proceedings (it's wonderful to see an actor with the skill and confidence of Baker simply step into the role and wear it instantly with a minimum of fuss and affectation (certainly one of Ms. Unger's problems)). I don't know if Garcia has a problem with marriage, relationships, or women, but he has an axe to grind somewhere. He has done other ensemble pieces with some of the same women. It seems to be his specialty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing take on love September 9, 2005
Format:DVD
The acting and writing in this film are nearly flawless, to such an extent that at first I didn't realize I was viewing fiction. Each actress was perfectly cast, and since each story was completely different from the next, I was later amazed to learn that they were all written by one man. The only underlying theme in all of the stories is "the reality of the situation, is very different from the idealized fantasy." This film is not about Prince Charming coming along, and completing a fairy tale ending. As a woman, I don't believe that this film was misogynistic in any way, so I disagree with the first review. A few of the characters could be described as being weak and lacking self-respect, but we are also shown strong female characters. Each story is so potent, and full of depth and wonderful idiosyncricies, that it becomes a nearly impossible task to review them all. If you enjoy films which are character- driven, which explore the various relationships between humans, and which don't always end in an oversentimentalized, indulgent Hollywood way, you will enjoy this film.

There is no other who can put a piece together about women quite like writer and director, Rodrigo Garcia ("Things you can tell just by looking at her", "Albert Nobbs"). This film is almost a study about women who have been left with vivid impressions from the men they were involved with. Marked on their memory with indelible ink, each one of the ten different monologues are descriptions, to the slightest detail, of how these relationships went. These interviewees can easily relate to everyday women in everyday lives with their personal stories.

After I began viewing, it took a short while to fully realize that each one of these perspectives is fully scripted and acted. I was truly caught off guard by these recollections until, inevitably, there were recognizable faces. Several quotable statements came through into the conversation along with many animated personas. The talks are painfully gritty and raw at times and altogether real. Without a soundtrack or movement in the background the camera focuses on the faces which are awash in stark unflinching detail. As the movie progressed, I found it impossible to look away from these candid tales. They bring an uneasy candor which is faceted with their own personal pain.

Partners go in and out of a woman's life. Concerning these women, there is an undisclosed reason why these particular couplings will, arguably, never stop haunting them. One woman quotes her most significant former partner stating, "Love comes knocking on a man's door only once in a lifetime", although this is not the general consensus. Another claims she will bounce back from her broken situation then goes on to say, "One never bounces high enough".
