Sexy Man…Ewan McGregon

Down With Love [2003] [DVD]

Rating:
3 out of 5 stars

Starring: Ewan McGregor, Renee Zellweger

Both are my favorate actors. Renee Zellweger is so good at performing in the romance comedy. May be she is not very beautiful, but I think she's charming and I like the way she acts—natural and good fun without overdoing.

The most presantly surprise is Ewan McGregor's performing. He's soooo charimatic and sexy even in a comedy. I have watched his another film The Pillow Book _that directed by _Peter Greenaway, in which Ewan acts as a bisexual translator. It was the first time I saw his performance, but I were already attracted and shocked by him.

Chinese title 《一树梨花压海棠》。

想出这个中文翻译名的人有几分天才的恶趣味。和另一部经典译制片《魂断蓝桥》一样,很少有译名能如此具有中国特色同时又如此和剧情相贴切。只是,《魂断蓝桥》如同蓝桥会的故事一样凄美,而一树梨花压海棠 ,闻者不免总能感到千年前那位天才词人带点点坏心的调侃,同时有种香艳暧昧的意味.

"一树梨花压海棠典自宋代苏东坡嘲笑好友词人张先(990–1078,字子野)的调侃之作。
据说张先在80岁时娶了一个18岁的小妾,东坡就调侃道:十八新娘八十郎,苍苍白发对红妆。鸳鸯被里成双夜,一树梨花压海棠.之后,一树梨花压海棠成为老夫少妻,也即老牛吃嫩草的委婉的说法.

If you believe in love at first sight, you never stop looking

Directed by Mike Nichols (The Graduate)
_Anna (Julia Roberts)_ : photographer who specializes in portraits of strangers;
Dan (Jude Law) : an obituary writer struggling to become a novelist; _Alice (Natalie Portman) _:an American stripper freshly arrived in London after a bad relationship;

lying is the most fun a girl can have while keeping her clothes on.

Larry (Clive Owen) _: a dermatologist who finds love under the most unlikely of circumstance.

Well, i haven't read the original novel, so i won't judge that whether it's a successful adaptation or not. To the film or story itself, its genre is of course romance, but i suppose that it isn't a film about love, rather one about attraction,lust and lies. This is really a very simple story happen bwteen two couples, however, the four caught in a web of passion and betrayal. After seeing this movie, i can't help to think that what is true love? There is only person in the film that i can't tell who is actually the one he loves. Dan, who r feeling immensely attracted to Alice at his first sight, but after he met Anna, he falls in love with her and tries hard to leave Alice. so does Anna. At that moment, I believe there is true love between Dan and Anna. The problem is, why such relationship could be so brittle. Dan is obvious the kind of "obsessed with truth" man. I won't feel surprised and sad that he can't get the love at the end. As to Anna, at first I couldn't understand why she came back to Larry, but now, I might know why.Because Larry is the one who dotes on her till the end.

Yet, will you choose the one you love or the one who loves you?
Is there lasting love in the modern world?
Is it really Once a cheater, always a cheater?
What's the truth?

After you watch this movie, you might ask yourself those questions or a few more.
