Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive (CNN IBN)

Some stories are genuinely moving, others so shamelessly manipulative that they come off as crass. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, directed by Stephen Daldry, falls somewhere in between.But the film rests squarely on the tiny shoulders of its young lead, and works only if you’re invested in the character of Oskar, and in the performance of Thomas Horn. Although impressive in portions, Horn’s shrill voice is grating after a point, and it doesn’t help that Daldry saddles the film with an incessant voiceover from the precocious kid.I’m going with two out of five for Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. Watch it if you don’t mind being manipulated into shedding tears.

Fashioned for celluloid from a novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close proceeds languidly like food being cooked overnight on slow fire. It is about loss, coping and illumination. Slowly the story of a boy’s reconciliation with his self and his mother also becomes a moving tale of a city and everyone who lived through 9/11. A meaner editor could have trimmed director Stephen Daldry’s movie by 10 minutes making it a tighter, neater work

THERE can be few things more horrific than an 11-year-old losing his father to an attack as senseless as 9/11, dreaming repeatedly of a man falling off the Twin Towers, and listening intermittently to the last messages his dad left on the answering machine for him.Not if this film is to be believed. Director Stephen Daldry (The Hours, Reader) doesn’t stop till he has squeezed the last tear out of this story based on a novel by the same name by Jonathan Safran Foer. “The worst day,” as the 11-year-old Oskar calls it, is replayed again and again, his and the audience’s emotions played with, when less would have been more.
