Product Description

Adapted from the acclaimed bestseller by Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is a story that unfolds from inside the young mind of Oskar Schell, an inventive eleven year-old New Yorker whose discovery of a key in his deceased father’s belongings sets him off on an urgent search across the city for the lock it will open. A year after his father died in the World Trade Center on what Oskar calls “The Worst Day,” he is determined to keep his vital connection to the man who playfully cajoled him into confronting his wildest fears. Now, as Oskar crosses the five New York boroughs in quest of the missing lock-–encountering an eclectic assortment of people who are each survivors in their own way--he begins to uncover unseen links to the father he misses, to the mother who seems so far away from him and to the whole noisy, dangerous, discombobulating world around him.

5.0 out of 5 stars unusual and beautifully acted 3 Jun 2012
Format:DVD
This is an unusual film about a boy - who is clearly a very unusual boy. Previous review described the boy as 'annoying' ... i think they have missed the point of the character. The boy is intense and would clearly be classed as very high functioning autistic (which is briefly mentioned in the film) - i didn't find him annoying at all, i found him charming and very moving. Highly intelligent but struggles with people and his own emotions. His father works with him constantly to encourage him to interact with people and face situations he (the boy) thinks he can't cope with. They play games, invent games with clues to be solved - and are just so close. Then it happens - that day. After that the boy has to cope without his dad and this story is the boy trying to move on, trying to cope with so much going on in his brain, trying to cope with his grief. The mum seems to be distant, not at all close with her son but really (and obviously ) she understands her sons problems and this will become clear. Its not a typical film about a child, this is a child with emotional problems - suberbly acted and i really enjoyed it.

When Stephen Daldry's drama about a young boy trying to come to terms with the loss of his father was first released, the critics savaged it. Those that gave it more than one star damned it as "Oscar bait" and, indeed, Max von Sydow's non-speaking performance was, bizarrely, nominated for an Academy Award.

Very few people, however, took the time to look closely at the central performance by young Thomas Horn, who manages to carry the whole film despite never having acted before. Less charitable viewers have described his character as annoying, with too many irritating quirks; I disagree. Having some experience of being in the presence of children with autism, I recognised some of the classic traits in the character of Oskar - a precociously bright, single-minded child who finds it difficult to relate to others and who needs the world around him to make sense. In the script, Oskar even mentions that he'd had tests for Asperger's syndrome but that the results were "inconclusive".

There is a fairly thick layer of schmaltz overlaying the film and Sandra Bullock, playing Oskar's mother is criminally underused, but this is a film that draws you into its - or more precisely Oskar's - world so fully that you're compelled to watch it to its conclusion.

It most definitely isn't a film for everyone, but if you think it might be your type of film, it's worth a few quid just to marvel at the central performance. There is a section in the middle that slows the film down, and that's the reason I can't stretch to a four-star rating, but it's most definitely a solid three-and-a-bit.

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful film... 12 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
a beautiful film - thought provoking - life affirming - and well shot. Don't listen to the critics that say it,s over sentimental - it's not but where sentimentality does exist it is well placed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sad but Mysteriously Rewarding 26 Jun 2012
By P. J. Salisbury TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A curious mixture of feel-good film and dramatic tragedy, as would perhaps be expected when dealing with the issue of a young boy coming to terms with the sudden death of his father in the '9/11' World Trade Centre attacks. This is a story which must resonate very deeply with Americans and anyone connected with the event.

Not only moving and gripping, this is also a great mystery story - what does that key fit; what will be behind the door; who is the strange lodger (renter) in the grandmother's flat? The boy's travels are a metaphor for his journey to understanding and acceptance. The heart-warming ending is unexpected but welcome.

I agree with a previous reviewer that the mother's ignorance of self-harming by the boy is baffling (Was it even necessary to include it? Surely it was sufficiently clear that he was (understandably) disturbed). The mother apparently allowing her boy to roam the streets alone is also bizarre, until its context is explained at the end.

It is probably one of those stories where the details are better represented in a book and that in cinema it is much more difficult to fill in the gaps and give earlier hints as to what is to follow. Overall the treatment is light and intriguing, not an emotional roller-coaster event which is used to convey the personal misery of an event such as this.

The three main characters were excellent and thoroughly believable. Sandra Bullock did a perfect job of portraying inner strength and fortitude, mixed with repressed misery. I liked the way the the film's relevance was broadened to include the same sort of issues arising from WWII. Even at two hours length the film is extremely watchable and engaging.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 13 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
Heart warming and heart breaking: Inspiring ideas (all of Oscar's creations are so lovely - they'll definitely make you smile/giggle)and beautiful colours used throughout. If you've always wanted to visit New York, this film will just amplify that desire! Watch this with an open mind as the ideas and events are all emotional and powerful. The place you are taken to by the end - acceptance - is just right, like a lukewarm bath.
There are lots of very upsetting moments where you'll possibly be close to tears but after the 2 hours and 10 minutes, you'll definitely feel a lot more at ease.
Highly recommend the novel as well as his others (e.g. Everything is Illuminated)!
