5.0 out of 5 stars First off..., 16 Feb. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Virgin Suicides [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
This film was so striking, having read Jeffrey Eugenides’ original, this had a lot to live up to, and that it did. I was numbed by its searing depicition of the five girls, so much so I could not cry until it was over, and when it did, I cried in fits.
Coppola has really excelled here in her directing debut, somewhat uncanny as I believe this was Eugenides’ debut publication too. The filming is wonderful, the setting plush and green, but in that lays great tradgedy, and this film portrays it in its purest form, I could not and can not walk away from this film and indeed the book without feeling somehow personally touched and effected by it.
In a way - it reminds me of my early teens (now 20) and that perhaps touches me in a way I can relate to. In all honesty, I feel lost for words; all I cay say is if you have or have not read the book, do buy this DVD and tell me honestly you were not touched deeply, one to have the tissues ready for.
Compulsive viewing.
