Format: DVD
If you're impatient or impervious to the charms of Sean Penn, most likey you'll be unamused. On the other hand, a film whose resume also boasts Frances McDormand, Harry Dean Stanton, Judd Hirsch and a trifecta of performances (live music, a soundtrack and acting) from David Byrne deserves at least an interview.

Even so, it comes very close to blowing the interview, taking an age to answer straightforward questions, seeming distracted, needlessly self-involved and with little interest, at first, in impressing the beholder.

But it does warm up a bit.

To give some sense of both the film's glacial slowness and its self-indulgence, at its mid-point it halts for a five minute intermezzo in which David Byrne and his group perform the title song, in its entirety, live in concert. Apropos nothing, slap-bang in the middle of the film. Now it's a good song, well performed and imaginatively staged (extraordinarily staged, really), but still it is out of all context and has the effect of staunching what gentle narrative current had begun to flow.

Cheyenne (Penn) is an elderly piece of gothic jetsam, washed up from the new-wave scene of the early Eighties. He hasn't played since, yet still mopes around his Dublin castle bedecked in black and with all the boyish accoutrements a wiser man might have put away years before: Black fright wig, white face paint, red lipstick and knee high platform boots.

In other words, he resembles Robert Smith, only older. The cruel would see a flash of Bono in there too. When Cheyenne puts on his half-moon reading spectacles and distractedly blows at a Gothic lock, he even looks like Shirley Williams might, were she the lead singer of the Damned.

This is what Wenders should have created when going to America,if he was to match his excellent first german films. It is a relief to meet a movie with such excellent pace and authentic spirit, so inspired acting and dialogues that make watching it a great pleasure. Though quite cold at first sight, it lets emotions come out as it unfolds in a meaningful way, giving you the impression of a movie straight from the heart. I loved it and Sean Penn is fantastic;so is almost everyone in the cast.Surely among the top movies of the year, and a movie that invites you to think while watching it.I could even say that when it ends, you feel a better person.

Saw this in the cinema. Love this film!! What a sensational performance from Sean Penn. Reminded me of his performance in Carlito's Way. Very unique and quirky. The music was top notch too. Not surprising really considering David Byrne (Talking Heads fame) did the soundtrack. Also has the added bonus of Frances McDormand in the film. I love everything she does and she doesn't disappoint in This Must Be The Place. Have pre-ordered on DvD already.

I absolutely loved this movie. It's the best one I've seen this year! It reminded me a bit of 'Edward Scissorhands'. It is delectably slow moving (as is Cheyenne, the main character! Lol), the storyline is a simple one in a way, but as the movie progresses you realise that there are so many influences that have affected Cheyenne throughout the years. The photography is stunning....the close up shots revealing so much, often without a word being said. I'm not very good at film reviews, but if you enjoy slow burning, real character-driven films with buckets of soul and beautiful cinematography then I'm sure you will enjoy this.

I am not sure why Sean Penn had to put on what sounds like a womans voice for his role but that aside the film was just too slow. I wanted to switch off after 20 minutes but i persevered. There are some funny and tender moments , not to mention bizarre,as penn the ageing goth former rock star tries to find a nazi war criminal that persecuted his father. Sadly it was just too slow. I can handle weird, and this definitely is a little weird, but it never gets out of second gear.

I could not get into this. I like Sean Penn, but found this one of his poorer efforts. Not sure why his character was portrayed with such a ridiculous voice...was he having a laugh or something? There were a few funny one liners, and a couple of poignant moments, but that's not enough to rate this higher than 2 starts, and a generous 2 at that.

Lacking somewhat in pace but absorbing. Looking forward to watching this over again as I am sure you will always find something new.

The great cinematography far outshone the contents of the film.
Penn's character got on my nerves after a while and the storyline whilst deep, was very slow in it's delivery.
