5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 May 2013
Format: DVD
The film has a lot of layers to it. Author Clay Hammond (Dennis Quaid) is reading from his novel, "The Words." The film then goes on about the novel of a struggling writer (Bradley Cooper) and his wife (Zoe Saldana). While the struggling writer is honeymooning in Paris he comes across an old novel which he passes off as his own. The novel is about an American in Paris at the end of WWII, which becomes a story within a story within the movie.

As it turns out the author is still alive. As we glimpse back to the present, Clay Hammond is being seduced by a college student (Olivia Wilde) who is fascinated with his work.

The movie attempts to deal with the guilt people feel for doing the wrong thing, then being unable to atone for it. Actions have consequences that sometimes cannot be made correct. Unfortunately the ending proved predictable for a fine story.

Parental Guide: 8 F-bombs. No sex or nudity. Implied sex.

We're to imagine a famous author, Clayton Hammond (Dennis Quaid), giving a public reading of his novel "The Words." As he talks, we see enacted the scenes he's reading -- scenes from the life of a young writer called Rory Jansen (Bradley Cooper), who, after failing to get several manuscripts published, succeeds with a manuscript that he didn't write but passed off to an agent as his own work. In fact, he had found the manuscript in an old briefcase that his wife (Zoe Saldana) had bought for him in a second-hand shop in Paris. His wife doesn't know about the manuscript, so when it gets published, she, like the agent, thinks that it's Rory's own work. The book wins awards, and Rory becomes rich and famous. As this story is unfolding, we see some scenes and we hear Clayton's voice connecting them -- so we never lose sight of the fact that what we're seeing is what's being read in public by Clayton.

There comes a point in Clayton's story when an old man (Jeremy Irons) tells Rory that he wrote the manuscript half-a-century earlier in Paris, after the death of his child, and that he lost it when his wife inadvertently left it on a train. THIS story, told to Rory alone as he and the old man sit on a bench in Central Park, is in turn dramatized -- we see scenes of Paris after the war and the young version of the old man (Ben Barnes) suffering the losses he describes and writing his manuscript while his wife, distraught after the death of the child, is at her parents' home in another city. He sends the completed manuscript to her, and it is as she returns to Paris that she leaves it on the train. SO -- there's Clayton's overarching story, partly dramatized, which includes within it a story, in its turn partially dramatized too.

"There's more than one way to take a life.” - Movie tagline

“The Words” is a beautifully-filmed, art house-perfect movie about human motivations, personal decisions, ultimate regrets, and hope. It stars a great cast of Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Dennis Quaid, Olivia Wilde, J.K Simmons, and a gripping performance by Jeremy Irons, among others. Well-acted by all, it tells the story of a struggling writer trying to get his first book accepted by any publishing house and not having any luck. He has a live-in girlfriend and a father who is footing his bills, and suddenly his luck changes when a great temptation appears and begins seducing him. But there are levels within levels in this movie which is really a tale of different time periods and decisions made in each. And how does Clay fit in? To no one’s surprise because of the scope of the movie and time periods, there are two excellent directors, who are also the writers: Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal. Music by Marcelo Zarvos. Cinematography by Antonio Calvach. Highly Recommended. Five COMPELLING Stars. (Amazon Instant Video. PG-13 rating, English and Italian.)

This film is Hollywood does the American writer goes to Paris and all that Hemingway thing. There's one cliche after another and even plagiarism in its most extreme form is ultimately seen as acceptable. I like Bradley Cooper, he's handsome and he has the all-American look but he hasn't got the talent to match his looks which makes me sorry for him although Hollywood is doing its best to push him and cover the cracks. And I think Jeremy Irons is a great actor but I don't know why he has to come over the doddering old man. I don't think I've ever seen an old man doddering like that in all my years except in movies. Dennis Quaid is also a fine and charming actor and always watchable but his role in this movie is superfluous. The script is poorly written in places and the writers can't seem to make up their minds whether to be literary or mainstream so it doesn't really work and the cliches and emotionless performances and corny plot bring it down. All the same it is entertaining but as someone else said I wish it was a book to read instead. Now that would be something.

I loved the film, but had a problem locating the English language button - the copy I bought was from Italy.

The item arrived on time, well packaged. Using an online programme I was able to watch it on my PC, as this is not normally possible due to it being an US import. The film itself was interesting. Bradley Cooper was convincing as he wrestled with his conscious. Not sure about Ms. Saldana's role, although they have great chemistry undoubtedly, her part seemed so wishy washy. Sorry.
