The Great Gatsby was unquestionably one of the most awaited movies of the year and, contrary to what many critics say, in my opinion, it didn’t disappoint (maybe because I haven’t read the book yet).
Great Gatsby conta a história de um amor impossível, de perda, extravagância e apatia.
Através da narrativa de Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) o filme transporta-nos até aos anos 20, uma época de moral duvidosa, grandes festas, novas fortunas, grandes excessos e jazz ao mesmo tempo que nos conta a história do misterioso Jay Gatsby e Daisy Buchanan.
Uma verdadeira explosão para os sentidos com as extravagantes festas dadas por Gatsby, a tentativa de reavivar um amor perdido, a esperança inabalável e a inevitável tragédia. Isto e as interpretações brilhantes de Leonardo Dicaprio como Gatsby, que me fez voltar a apaixonar por ele (a cena do reencontro com Daisy deixou-me rendida) e Carey Mulligan que traz a dose certa de sofrimento e apatia à sempre deslumbrante Daisy Buchanan tornaram esta adaptação de Baz Luhrman um must-see para esta Primavera.
Próximo passo para mim – ler o livro.
Alguém já viu o filme? Qual é a vossa “sentença”?
Without wanting to lose another minute and because I’ve been waiting anxiously for months to see it, I got out of work on Thurday and ran to the movie to catch the premiere.
From the first moment it was able to grab my undivided attention, with its Art Deco graphics and interiors, a fantastic soundtrack from the one and only Mr. Jay Z, that brings together jazz and modern beats like rap and, of course the breathtaking wardrobe, a masterpiece brought to us by Miuccia Prada and Brooks Brothers.
Great Gatsby tells us the story of an impossible love, loss, extravagance and apathy.
Through the narrative of Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) the movie transports us to the roaring twenties, an era of lose morals, huge parties, new fortunes, great excesses and fabulous jazz at the same time it takes us through the story of the mysterious Jay Gatsby and his everlasting love, Daisy Buchanan.
A true explosion of the senses with Gatsby’s extravagant parties (who wouldn’t want to go to one of these? I know I would!), the attempt to rekindle a lost love, the unshakable hope and the inevitable tragedy. This and the brilliant interpretations of Leonardo Dicaprio as Gatsby, which made me fall in love with him all over again (the scene when he meets Daisy again after all those years was it to me) and Carey Mulligan who brought the right dose of broken heart and apathy to her ever stunning Daisy, have made this Baz Luhrman adaptation of the classic a must-see for this Spring.
Next step for me – read the book.
Has anyone seen the movie yet? What is your “sentence”?
