The Reviews for Metroland (1997) 1080p


Must watch for people who feel boringly settled in their life!Reviewed bynitin-kundraVote: 8/10

Every person, once in a while, during his adolescent years, dreams of doing something different- something more meaningful. But then he grows up and makes the choices- mostly ending up on paths that many had taken before him and many will take after him. While traveling on that path of course, he often stops and wonders whether he made the right decision- is this the right path for him. Metroland beautifully explores this state of mind when a person is half way down the road and wondering whether the decision he took was right or whether he should really become that rebel he always dreamed of becoming. The fact that this movie (made in nineties) is shot in the context of seventies emphasizes this point even further- the situation doesn't change with the decade- or with the ages.

The acting is brilliant with Christian Bale on the top. The two leading ladies are OK though not too impressive.The direction is the one that truly steals the show. The director is able to create the effect of the viewer actually being part of the journey with the protagonist, where he starts from the feeling of what if and ending up in the awakening. A must watch for anyone past there 20s and feeling settled in their life.

Need more excitement, flash, and dramaReviewed bySnoopyStyleVote: 5/10

Chris (Christian Bale) lives a pleasant life with his wife Marion (Emily Watson). In his younger days, he was restless with his delinquent friend Toni (Lee Ross). While he escaped to Paris, Toni traveled around the world. Now Toni is back and is dismayed at Chris' ordinary lifestyle. He tries to free Chris from the grips of Metroland, and Chris starts to doubt his life with Marion. The movie also flashes back to Chris' life in Paris where he meets french girlfriend Annick (Elsa Zylberstein) and eventually Marion.

I love both Christian Bale and Emily Watson. They have done more exciting work elsewhere. Emily is doing a very quiet saintly character. Lee Ross is at least exciting as an absolute douche. I like Christian Bale's struggle. However the past story in Paris is rather slow and provide little drama. The flashback could easily be cut in half. The movie could do well with more of Toni's debaucherous world travels. At least that would add more color to this bland movie. The movie starts with a wish for something darker or more exciting, but ends with something much too ordinary.

'Sad-humored' comedy-drama...Christian Bale in an acting holding-patternReviewed bymoonspinner55Vote: 7/10

One of Christian Bale's more benign vehicles, an adaptation of Julian Barnes' novel which mixes moods playfully, if not incisively. In 1977, a British married couple in their thirties have their household mildly disrupted after the husband's boyhood best friend sweeps into town, encouraging the man to test the boundaries of his commuter lifestyle. Somewhat reminiscent in content of the British kitchen-sink dramas from the 1960s--and yet innocuous enough to remind one of the later "The Banger Sisters"--the film is solidly-performed and designed, interesting without cutting very deeply. The flashbacks to Bale's young adulthood, living in Paris with dreams of being a professional photographer, are starry-eyed and dewy, helped along by the actor's effective boyishness. The film hopes to paint a portrait of one life which may (subtly) mirror thousands, but it is ultimately too mild and tidy to be a thorough character study. ** from ****
