4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual, original and entertaining. 9 Jan 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am pretty sure the fact that the hot girl du jour, Kristen Stewart, should get this 2005 movie the audience it deserves.

Trapped in his mother's Lower East Side apartment, sixteen-year-old Finn Earl (Anton Yelchin) wants nothing more than to escape New York. He wants to spend the summer in South America studying the Ishkanani Indians (called "Fierce People"), with the anthropologist father he's never met. Finn's dreams are shattered when he is arrested in a desperate effort to help his drug-dependent mother, Liz (Diane Lane), who works as a massage therapist. Determined to get their lives back on track, Liz moves the two of them into a guesthouse for the summer on the vast country estate of her ex-client, the aging aristocratic billionaire, Ogden C. Osbourne (Donald Sutherland).

In Osbourne's close world of privilege and power, Finn and Liz encounter the super rich, a tribe portrayed as fiercer and more mysterious than anything they might find in the South American jungle. (Dirk Wittenborn, the author of the novel on which the film is based, grew up a poor outsider among the super rich in an upper-crust New Jersey enclave).

Earl soon becomes an object of attention for Osborne's two children (Kristen Stewart and Chris Evans), with mixed results to put it mildly, which I won't reveal and form the basis of the plot.

Throughout, this film was quirky, sexy, surprising, funny and original and I recommend it highly.

'Fierce People' is indeed fierce, and dare I say truthful in many ways. Often it is said that the 'rich' have better lives than the 'poor', and whilst this may be a crass over-generalisation it is indeed something that many people believe. That is until the veil is removed and the horror of such a 'truth' revealed. That truth can be extreme, nauseating and offensive to even the most liberal of moralities, and for this reason some people may find scenes within the film difficult to watch.

In fact, those hidden and shadowed lives once they are made known, make for a sad indictment on just how inhuman some people can be if given the freedom to act they way they really are. Unfortunately wealth, privilege and the power that comes with money, often makes for such liberty. There are some exceptions, however these are few and far between, and even those with good intention find themselves at the mercy of their own privilege and circumstance.

Many of these points cannot be discussed in the detail I would like, as such would give the plot away. Needless to say, I found the deception endemic amongst the privileged, and in particular their children, to be offensive in the extreme. The manner in which they treated those they considered 'beneath' them was a unsettling revelation, as I have often found myself an observer to similar offences. Staff and people are treated as property, and are bought and sold with little regard to their own feelings, desires, families and circumstances.

The film is full of seasoned actors such as Diane Lane and Donald Sutherland both of whom are profound, as well as some of Hollywood's most talented young actors (Kristen Stewart and Anton Yelchin).

4.0 out of 5 stars Fierce People 28 April 2010
By underthethumb VINE VOICE
By comparing the South American Ishkanani Indians with the rich Osbourne clan, this film shows that each within its own small kingdom acts very similarly despite the supposed difference in development. It is a very engrossing, if at times uncomfortable film to watch; one that definitely warrants its 15 certificate for its subject matter.

The acting is first rate by all the main characters; especially Donald Sutherland and Chris Evans, the former as the head of the clan and grandfather to Evans.

Unfortunately there are no extras though.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ex Malo Bonum - Out Of Bad, Comes Good 13 Mar 2008
I found the motif of the 'Iskanani Tribe' as utterly impelling, and it works excellently in tandem with the actual brutality of the residents of Rich America. The story itself is moving, and it brought me to tears on several occasions, the acting is totally on point, particularly Chris Evans' character 'Bryce'. You can split the film in two, the first half is relatively introspective and slow, and the second half is dark and fast-paced with a climatic ending, and both halves work brillantly together. I highly recommend this film, it has an amazing twist, an emotive and engaging plot, and also a fresh take on western customs, exposing the savagery at the centre of our own 'tribes'.

2.0 out of 5 stars dis'orientating. 15 Jan 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Based on the book of the same name.Is not what its trailer implies.Warning-Chris Evans is fat in this,..but overall makes for a good show on your laptop when really there's nothing else to do,..only worth a few .
Can u believe it,,there's a 2 disc collectors edition of this as a dutch import here on u.k,,if you've seen this you'll be wandering now like me what on earth would make up such a release.As pleasant as the feature is,,overall it really is a piece of left over turkey which was left lying in a broom cupboard before being dusted down after the director happened on a hit several years after its production.
Probably the most uneven hash ever released theatrically,,its 5.1 track and outstanding transfer saves it.
