Her Movie Review


Ratings:4/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
Crisply shot in bright hues, and hinting at a technologically-infused future, this is ultimately a deeply moving film about a romance that feels painfully authentic. I'm going with four out of five for Her. Love, after all, is love...whether your partner is made of flesh and blood, or coding, or rubber like that doll in the Ryan Gosling film.

Her is, by far, the best picture of the year, and miles ahead of the other Oscar nominated films, but those comparisons don't seem at all relevant when I sit back and smile (stupidly wide) at the impressions the film has left. This review, believe me, could be six times its size. For all its conceptual highs, Her is not a film about technology, though it is partly a cautionary fable. This is a film about love. A film to love.

Her has a profound melancholy. It directly speaks to our harried, technology soaked lives and our many selves who are, at once, virtually over-connected and yet, emotionally unmoored. In places, this film feels long and stretched. But it shifts something within you. When Theodore’s love affair ends, as it must, I cried. Go see Her. If only to see the miracle of Scarlett Johansson creating a full-bodied, three-dimensional character using just her voice. I’m going with four stars.

Despite the background and premise, Her is a story about heartbreak, relationships and moving on. Samantha is like a catalyst setting the ball into motion, as Theodore’s interaction with her starts peeling off the layers, exposing the hurt and years of unresolved issues that lie within. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself having conversations with Siri after watching Her! A futuristic take on love and longing Her is worth watching for its different premise.

Despite its ability to bring some onions near your eyes, it is never schmaltzy or saccharine. It’s affecting and sublime, but never corny. It’s moving, but never mawkish. And even in the film’s most heartbreaking scene, the frame only contains a character looking at a wall. The fact that this was somehow achieved is incredible.

Her looks at the next stage which is kind of scary, it's about a man getting too attached to his talking operating system! Though you know this may be almost impossible in the real world but director Spike Jonze creates magic in front of your eyes and what may seem unbelievable when someone narrates it to you is soon believable when you are inside the cinema hall. Her is a lovely film which you just shouldn't miss!

This is a movie for everyone. You will smile and laugh, tear-up and be left speechless. Spike Jonze has made a movie which engages you on a human level. This in-depth look at the way people fall in love. We feel the rush of falling and flying at the same time. The connections we make along the way, the disagreements, the anger and the hurt that we feel are just a few of the things that this movie leaves us with. In the end you will ask yourself a few questions, about what makes us real. Is it a physical presence or the emotional connections? What does it mean to be human? Watch this movie and think about those answers. You will be pleasantly surprised at your thoughts. I know I was.

  1. It tells the story of a lonely writer who develops an unlikely relationship with his newly purchased operating system that's designed to meet his every need. The movie stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and the voice of Scarlett Johansson.Here out hero romances his operating system in such a way that most of the so called romantic heros romancing real woman are put into shame.emotional love between person an computer(though with an artificial inteligency one) has been shown so beautifully and also never been done before.especially for geeks or at least for gadget freaks,this one is a must see.In a funny note,The movie is to be seen seriously but the concept should'nt be taken seriously.

  4. HER:
    Imaginative, inventive and extremely human! [4.5/5]

    Prank in which friends pass on mobile calls to other saying there is someone asking for him; later to make him realize that it is just a recorded computerized voice message from service providers of all kind, is an age-old tasteless joke ever played on you. But think of a next level in futuristic world not so far-off where technology has made into our lives so fanatically that we are bound to get connected to them for our every single need including the emotional support only human could afford to offer till now…and that is the premise on which celebrated filmmaker Spike Jonze constructs one of the finest and the amazingly fascinating mankind-meets-technology romantic science-fiction called ‘HER’.

    Writing personal letters for his clients who may not have enough time and skill to do that and posting them to their loved ones on behalf is what Theodore Twombly [Played by Joaquin Phoenix] has been doing for a very long. This is the world where every single machinery around is operated by voice commands and you literally have nothing in the name of social connect. He is a loner on the verge of a broken marriage. His only pastime is silly interactive video-games with body movement recognition on life-size screen. Soon, he finds an artificially intelligent operating system run by a female voice named Samantha [Scarlett Johansson’s magical voice]. She can talk. She can discuss. She can observe state of mind of the one she’s talking to. She can chuckle. She can joke. She can see things and have her own opinion about them. She is everything but a trapped soul in a computer system without having any body. No wonder, Theodore finds a companion in her to share his loneliness and the emotional drain he’s been in. The bond gradually moves into a serious mutual relationship in which Samantha discovers much more than she’s designed to experience. Where would this unusual, odd but extremely emotional and ‘no less than any human’ love-story find its end, is the next in line.

    In HER, Spike Jonze paints a beautiful world using bright, vivid and vibrant color palette decorated luminously with minimal props and innovative art-design. The shades of red & yellow worn by Phoenix are nothing short of visual treat for eyes. Brilliantly shot outdoors to establish subtle futuristic world and aesthetically sticking to extreme close-ups to capture varied human emotions set an example in skilled cinematography. Editing is crisp and shows an upper hand especially in lyrical montages where Theodore recollects moments from his past relationship. Silence has its own rhythm in music and the sound designing in HER definitely knows how to employ and exploit that.

    On one hand if it is a wonderful work of filmmaking, it is also exceptionally good at performances. Joaquin Phoenix in broad frames and thick moustache delivers one of his bests. Scarlett Johansson as the voice of Samantha excels in emoting through just what you hear and not seen at all situation and makes her presence felt completely. Amy Adams plays a colleague-cum-friend to Theodore who’s always there with her unconditional support to him.

    Having said that, though it stumbles a bit in the second half with a repetitive approach in the series of events, Spike Jonze’s HER never slips from being the most inventive, imaginative and one of the cutest love-story on screen in a long time. I loved HER and I don’t see any reason why you would not. A Must-watch!! [4.5/5]
