Lars And The Real Girl – **1/2

Posted: August 30, 2010 in Comedy, Drama, USA, XX1/2

Seen from a usb stick at a friend’s place!

While staying over at a friend’s place, he recommended me the best movie he’s seen so far this year. A simple but charming indie flic with Ryan Gossling who plays a delusional guy that finally starts to liven up as he starts a relationship with a sex doll, which the entire community seems to tolerate! It sounds crazy and it is. But it’s never really comical. It’s a nice story, original, with a message of tolerance. The acting is good. Especially Ryan Gossling makes you believe he really is in love with the doll. The script is pretty ingenious, even though it’s just an enlargement of a cool idea. It never bores. You really want to know what’s happening to this character and his relationship with the doll. And of course you want to know if he will be cured by his delusion. The movie takes place during the winter and it’s more the kind of winter movie. But it was rainy and cold today, so a perfect film to end a winter day in summer.
