Two Line Reviews - #332

Movie: The Bridges of Madison County (1995)

Plot: A photographer for NGC goes country-side in search of bridges to document. He gets the aid of a home-making housewife whose family is on an exhibition for 4 days. The 4 days and the photographer kindle the urge to live the life she had dreamt of in her childhood and perturb her mind completely!

  • Clint Eastwood makes and shows a poignant tale out of a film that migrated people can best appreciate. A normal movie lover like us too can, for such is the manner in which the scenes are conceived.
  • Meryl Streep comes up with a bowl-out performance and explains her dilemma perfectly.
  • Clint, as ever, is subtle and underplays his role to near perfection as well.
  • The gradual shift in mindset of the children of Meryl in the present is nicely shown too.
Poignance, a wonderful pair - what more would one want!
