Editorial Reviews

Written and directed by Terrence Malick, TO THE WONDER is a romantic drama about men and women grappling with love and its many phases and seasons passion, sympathy, obligation, sorrow and indecision and the way these forces merge together and drift apart, transforming, destroying and reinventing the lives they touch. Starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem, this deeply moving visual film intermingles love, nature and spirit. "All things work together for the good."

Visiting the world of Terrence Malick in many ways must be differentiated from `watching a movie' and that is likely one of the reasons there are so many honest people who love movies who find TO THE WONDER a major disappointment, `a mess', `not a movie' and other responses. That Terrence Malick has a gift of blending film and thought and philosophy and music and silence into a meditation on his views of life, of love, of the human condition is a given. The `story' is nonlinear, given in bits an pieces like the momentary light fireflies offer in Oklahoma nights or the strains of themes from the classical music with which he bathes his quiet moments, themes that begin, echo, go nowhere, and is about those very personal responses to life as it happens to us or as we perceive it has a meaning, a direction, a connection to God.

In view of that it seems a bit odd that Magnolia pictures offers a synopsis of the `plot' and that should be shared here: `Neil (Ben Affleck) is an American traveling in Europe who meets and falls in love with Marina (Olga Kurylenko), an Ukrainian divorcée who is raising her 10-year-old daughter Tatiana (Tatiana Chiine) in Paris. The lovers travel to Mont St. Michel, the island abbey off the coast of Normandy, basking in the wonder of their newfound romance. Neil makes a commitment to Marina, inviting her to relocate to his native Oklahoma with Tatiana. He takes a job as an environmental inspector and Marina settles into her new life in America with passion and vigor. After a holding pattern, their relationship cools. Marina finds solace in the company of another exile, the Catholic priest Father Quintana (Javier Bardem), who is undergoing a crisis of faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars A meditation on Christian Love May 1, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The movie got panned by critics who are not theologically astute but they are wrong. Terrance Malick films can't be seen just once. You have to watch them over and over again to pick up the message. I have only seen the movie once but what I took away from this film was that it was a profound, very profound actually, meditation on love but especially love in a Christian sense. The voice overs referring to "the love that loves us" are a subtle hint, as is the name of the movie. In the movie we learn that the Wonder is Mont St-Michele, one of the most beautiful churches in the world. The Wonder though at an even deeper level is this "love that loves us". While the relationship between Neil and Marina is passionate and powerful at first it eventually fades. Yet while it is white hot we see the world, through Malick's camera lens, in what reviewer Damon Linker calls a transfigured sense. Who has not felt this way when they are in love? There is a deeper point to be made about love though and that comes from Father Quintana (Javier Bardem at his finest). While Neil and Marina struggle with their love, on again and off again, Father Quintana struggles with love at a much deeper level, sacrificial love, the love of Christ. It was these scenes, the ones of Father Quintana working with the poor and the drug addicted on the streets as well as giving communion to prisoners, that really spoke to me. Father Quintana's homilies on love are deep and still have me pondering this love that loves us. Watch this movie, see it sever times, ponder God's Love.

5.0 out of 5 stars To The Wonder -- is Wondrous! April 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Terrence Malick's new film To The Wonder was released on the same day in select theaters across the U.S., but more significantly, on Video On Demand (VOD) and online so that you don't have to wait three or four months for it to come out on DVD or Blu-Ray, but can stay at home and watch it in HD and the comfort of your own home -- all for a mere $7.99 or $6.99 -- less than the price of a single ticket at the cinemas.

This is a radical move, to bypass a theatrical release. But this works for this type of film, I believe, because the same-day limited release in theaters generates same-day reviews across the country and could result in great VOD traffic. This could be a new strategy for independent films.

This is only fitting because this is such an intimate, personal film -- or experience -- that to share it in a dark auditorium with total strangers seems to be the antithesis of this film.

I watched it on On Demand in HD and I found it to be, like all of Terrence Malick's films, a deeply internal experience. You're and constantly being pulled in several directions:

1) You're never sure what's going on in a Terrence Malick film; yet you're assured that it's a steady hand that's riding the keel. A Malick film is a journey -- you go with it. It's the same sort of experience or sensation that you have when you're watching a Stanley Kubrick film for the first time. The story and the meaning is never obvious or written out. It's something that seeps into you.

2) I keep using the word "experience" because that's so much of what a Malick film is. He's never followed traditional linear storytelling. He has his own entirely unique voice. And that's what a filmmaker has to have to stand above the rest and be unique. It's more sensory.

A totally unique movie which was directed by a very creative and respected director. Doesn't just give you the typical superficial, romance stuff. This is an outstanding movie.
