Product Description

When his late mother appears in a vision and tells him to go to Bucharest, Charlie Countryman immediately boards a plane across the Atlantic. A chance encounter with an ailing passenger leads Charlie to Gabi, a Romanian beauty, changing the course of his entire trip. As he falls head-over-heels in love with Gabi, he realizes that her dark past is riddled with dangerous baggage: namely her gangster ex-husband who has no intention of letting Gabi go. Determined to protect her, Charlie enters into a hallucinatory underworld filled with violence and, strangely enough, love.

Amazon.com

There's a lesson to be learned from Charlie Countryman. A geography lesson, to be exact: if someone recommends a visit to Bucharest, you might want to make sure they don't mean Budapest instead, for while the latter is one of Europe's most attractive and desirable destinations, the former is, well, not--at least not for this film's titular hero. Still, that's precisely where Charlie (Shia LaBeouf, hilariously described by one reviewer as a "scruffy emo-puppy") goes after his recently departed mother (Melissa Leo) appears in a vision and suggests the trip for no apparent reason. When the kindly Romanian gentleman seated next to him expires on the flight (just one of the film's many credibility-defying moments), Charlie takes it upon himself to seek out the man's daughter, Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood, sporting a decent eastern European accent), a cellist for the local opera company. Faster than you can say "Te iubesc" ("I love you"), Charlie falls for the taciturn young woman, which in turn attracts the unwanted attention of her ex, Nigel (Mads Mikkelsen). This is not a fellow you want to mess with, and when Charlie stumbles on evidence of a brutal crime carried out by Nigel and Darko (Til Schweiger), one of his shady underworld associates, mere jealousy turns to murderous rage, and Charlie spends the rest of the movie running for his life. That this American innocent abroad is willing, even eager, to risk everything for someone he's known for all of two days is, like much of the movie, patently absurd. But having shot a good many TV commercials, director Fredrik Bond knows his way around an action sequence, and his film has a sleek, dreamlike quality and an attitude that's at once ominous and mildly amusing (Harry Potter's Rupert Grint offers comic relief as one of the fellow tourists Charlie meets at his youth hostel). Though it's no one's idea of a classic, Charlie Countryman will surely hold your attention for a couple of hours. --Sam Graham

Nine Things about the Movie “Charlie Countryman” [Romania, 2013]

1. The original title of the movie (and the title that appears onscreen) is “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman”.

2. For some reason, mainstream critics tore this movie apart, perhaps because it denies easy classification. I don’t know. Whatever the reason, it doesn’t deserve the hate that was heaped on it.

3. It’s kind of a violent, drug-fueled, romantic drama wrapped in magical realism.

4. Shia LaBeouf stars in it, and I think this may be his best performance ever. LaBoeuf plays Charlie, a depressed young man who has a tendency to talk to people even after they’re dead.

5. Charlie’s dead mother tells him to take a trip to Bucharest, where he meets a cello player with a dead father and a psychotic husband. Charlie falls in love with her, and he gets drawn into her problems.

6. The guy that played Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, Rupert Grint, does a good job here playing an over-eager druggie. He’s definitely not at Hogwarts anymore.

7. The movie is bafflingly good at capturing that “damn-the-consequences-I’m-in-love” feeling that young people tend to fall into.

8. The soundtrack fits the movie perfectly. The original score meshes well with tracks from Moby and M83 to keep the slightly hallucinatory, dreamy atmosphere going through the whole film.

9. The ending wraps everything up a little too neatly, but this is an oddly beautiful film that needs to be better appreciated.

Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, Til Schweiger, Rupert Grint and James Buckley. Truly excellent performances from all these very fine actors. Before I talk about Shia LABeouf, here is the low down on the movie. Charlie (Shia) loses his mom, she in a vision tells him to go to Bucharest, he does meets Gabi (Evan) and all kinds of bad things happen, really bad things and Charlie falls in love with Gabi so he doesn't care how messed up he gets by the ex-boyfriend (Mads) or a nightclub owner who needs something she has (Til, he is always so good). Now for Shia....I have become disenchanted with him lately, due to whatever meltdowns he has been having. This performance put him back on my radar...what an amazing job, insightful, moving, daring and just all around great! I felt what he was feeling, and my heart broke for him all thru this movie. BTW, he got himself into amazing shape too. lean and so defined.

This movie is amazingly brilliant .. superb acting from Mads Mikkelsen and Evan Rachel Wood… this intense love, coming into ones own, adventure drama and action movie is one of the best in its genre !!!! I cannot believe it didn’t get nominated for anything .. phenomenal story line keeps you on the edge of your seat ..and it’s a thinker as well.. maybe that’s why some “middle of the road” movie goers didn’t give it that many stars or good ratings or maybe not even get it… it’s one of my top 10 fave Indie and all time fave movies all together …even has humours lines from Mads Mikkelsen .. and others … a defiantly must see film…!!!!!

This is a great film; why don't people take Shia LaBeouf seriously? Traveling in Eastern Europe he becomes enthralled by an elusive and mysterious beauty. Naturally it doesn't end well. How can it when her father died on his shoulder on the plane ride coming over?

A young man loses his mother (Melissa Leo), and her spirit suggests that he travel to Bucharest. I recommend this movie to people who like edgy films with a European feel and don't cringe with some violence. I watched this movie for Mads Mikkelsen who has a supporting role. As usual, Mads gave a great performance, and he is so handsome. I'm not normally a Shia LaBeouf fan. I was pleasantly surprised at how much he has grown as an actor. He displayed more depth in this film than in anything else I've seen him in. Perhaps he just needed the right script. Evan Rachel Wood was excellent as the love interest (of both men). I think she can do anything Jennifer Lawrence can do. Don't see this if you're only into expensive Hollywood blockbusters.

This starts as an original, promising movie of a young American, Charlie (Shia LaBeouf) who travels to Bucharest following his mother's death and becomes involved with a beautiful cellist (Evan Rachel Wood), who has unsavory underworld connections. It's fresh and unpredictable until about two-thirds of the way into the film when Charlie finds evidence of a major crime and proceeds to act in such a monumentally stupid way that viewers may find themselves hurling objects at the screen. The "heavy" in this movie is played with gusto by Mads Mikkelsen.

Shia LaBeouf is endearing and a fascinating athletic actor to watch. The story line is clever and original with a little essence of Kurt Vonnegat time bending thrown in by way of speaking thru the veil of the great beyond. I'd have watched it twice if the Amazon stream wouldn't have stopped. Amazon, please consider giving customers at least 24 hrs for their movie purchase. Other than that, it's a great offer from Amazon/ It's a convenient & cozy way to watch movies in bed from your laptop! Shia, is a sincere and authentic actor, was also very good in Lawless (2012) and The Company You Keep (2012). I enjoy many aspects of film; one of which is watching an actors body of work and seeing their development as they evolve in their craft. I recommend Shia LaBeouf as one young actor to keep your eye on.
