“Everything just works out the way it’s gonna and we just plod along behind it”
ADORE could have turned out really cheesy, but the very real characters, along with a nice blend of funny and sad moods, fitting soundtrack, and pretty Australian beach scenery keep it from becoming so. Fine performances by all the major players. Though more character and conflict development may seem needed at first, we get to know everyone and everything gradually, and the fact that they are all just fairly “normal” (whatever that is) people is pivotal. Not the greatest script, but it’s nothing if not realistic.
Regarding the plot: The way the improbable quadrangle develops is pretty convincing. Even if what’s happening in the premise is nothing illegal, it’s obviously weird if not downright perverse. Yet, I was surprised to find myself rooting for both couples as ADORE proceeded, wanting them all to be happy together. The way the two women bear a superficial resemblance to each other, causing us to occasionally forget who’s whose mum and who’s whose lover, is another interesting effect. Finally, the isolated cove with its stationary sun-raft is an apropos symbol.
Though it’s obviously not a “family film” or one for younger children, there is no gore, serious nudity (just a couple of brief booty-shots of Robin Wright and Xavier Samuel), or other flinchable elements (unless you count the multiple unexplicit sex scenes).
ADORE is one of the strongest, most satisfying films to come out in recent years, and I enjoyed it immensely.
A good surprise
At the beginning of the movie, you find it boring. It seems just one of those “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” variation, with good actresses to glorify it a bit. So you sort of drag along the scenery and the beauty of Robin Wright and Naomi Watts (and the two gorgeous boys) and you think you’re in for a good nap.
Then things start to unfold. That’s when you see the director was serious about “decrypting simmering emotions”. You’re baffled by what’s going on in front of you – because you get grossed by it, and at the same time, enchanted by it. Who are we to tell the limit to a relationship? And who are they to break those limits? To what extent we can excuse everything in the name of love (whatever the meaning and use of it)? How far can we go to bask in our passions? The plot of this movie defies our sense of self. And it can get pretty gnarly to discover what sort of ugly (or pretty) judgement calls have been lurking about your mind, when faced with that kind of event.
It’s not a masterpiece. There are some plot holes. But when it comes to dissect bonds, relationships and the feelings moving around those, this movie is extremely good.
