Reviews

A dark comedy, based on the best-selling novel by John Irving. The Berry family consists of Father, Mother, John (a student), Franny (the victim of a gang rape), Frank (who is gay) and Lilly. Together they run the Hotel New Hampshire in New England, but when Father's friend Freud asks them for help, they move operations to a hostelry in Vienna with the same name. There they are taken hostage when they stumble upon a plot to blow up the opera house.

A superb film that has sadly never received the acclaim it deserves. It has everything you could ever want in a black comedy from a fatal attack by a stuffed dog to the ultimate in sexual revenge involving a bear suit.
The film endlessly surprises. Not least as it is a good "brat pack" film starring Jodie Foster, Nastassja Kinski Rob Lowe, Mathew Modine and Beau Bridges.
A good film for a night in with a "close friend", but only if they are not easily offended by things decidedly not politically correct.

This film is a must for people who like black comedies and are not too squeamish when it comes to subjects such as incest, sexual perversions, homosexuality, revenge and prostitution.
Almost as good as the novel by John Irving, a great film with a great cast, Jodie Foster (as great as ever), Beau Bridges, Rob Lowe, Nastassia Kinski,I simply love it.

Format: DVD
If you have not read the book, then this movie may intrigue you. It is quirky and interesting to say the least. As a storyline it does not lack imagination. From Maine to Vienna to NYC and back to Maine, from the Jew-hating German tourists to the radicals and the whores, from one Hotel New Hampshire to another, the dreams of a father and his colourful family unfold in a series of bizarre and at times disturbing events. And life appears to be a fairy tale that we live as we chase our dreams.

Now, in relation to the actual book, this movie can be described with just one word: RUSHED. The adaptation is so faithful that it tries to cover almost everything, all characters and all events, thereby failing miserably to project the sentiment behind the eccentric story of this highly unusual family. I could go on and on about how the accurate quotes from the original text fall flat on a screenplay that comes across truncated and patched together clumsily, how the scenes lack emotional depth, how the characters are not given enough time to be adequately developed... but I will instead characterise the whole attempt as noble but short. If the book was a long wave-like function, with a rise to a crest, then a drop followed by a building surge and another rise to another crest, over and over and over again, then the movie was just a cross-section of the top parts of this rollercoaster of a wave-like function, shaving off all the crests and placing them in a two hour blender, where they were shaken and served to please God knows what. Surely not the potential of this fascinatingly bizarre book, nor its undercurrent and extremely subtle magical tone. And it was not for lack of effort.

Enjoyed this film. Have several DVD's featuring Jodie Foster, and was pleased to add this one to my collection. She is a very good actress.
