He unearths plenty of smart, insightful tension in this troubled marriage, a partnership on unequal terms that becomes less emotional and more financial by the day. She has to start from scratch in a new city. Finally there is main female character, which is independent and strong, which should appeal to ladies. James Jang Woo-Sung , is planning attacks with precision and accuracy of a Swiss watch, and everything is done under nos of Hwangs team. Walter has taken credit for her work, and is well on his way to transforming it into a global phenomenon. When she walked out on her husband in 1958 to make a new life for herself and her daughter in San Francisco, she met and married the aggressive Walter Keane, a real estate broker who pretended to be a Sunday painter but was actually a plagiarist with marketing skills who took over the marketing of Margaret's works and sold them under his own name, first on canvas and then as mass produced posters, becoming a well-known purveyor of mid-20th-century kitsch who, as his character claims in the film, inspired Andy Warhol. The pace is fluent enough and the duration of the film is just about right for the content it presents.
In turn, Sol Kyung-Gu somewhat toned down his character, so that Han Hyo-Joo and supporting cast could shine more. The time period is portrayed in realistic fashion. For starters, the character is as American as the Great Plains but Waltz cannot entirely obliterate his Austrian accent; it colors his every utterance. Will she get the guts to stop the fraud? And yet, barring a few scenes, the final film is curiously characterless: a competently-made, shrewdly- cast biopic that never quite troubles the heart or spirit the way Burton's films can do. To use her talent in the best way, she is trying to get into an elite unit in charge of surveillance and supervision, led by Hwang Sol Kyung-Gu , and supervises by the chief Lee Kyung Jin. However, despite all this reserve and distance, James is still a hard and ruthless criminal who will not leave any loos ends, and his favored weapon is a fountain pen. There would be nothing wrong there, but the fact that in it's uneven tone there seems to emerge a will to give an accurate and worthy recounting of these events makes so much of the drama feel out of nowhere.
This film becomes a legal dispute as who is claiming the work is in question yet you as the viewer know who's best at the brush! Cold Eyes is a great example that there is still room for innovation and a new way of using old ideas. I am amazed that nobody reviewed this movie! No plot for the characters to shine. Only a handful of them is outstanding, but the rest is solidly constructed and does not deviate in the level from foreign production. He appears to be her soul mate. However, the biggest surprise is the excellently created James. The story stalls along the way. This is an excellent remake of the Hong Kong movie Eye in the Sky 2007 and is a remake, which in my opinion has surpassed the original.
I could not have cared less by the time the issue was resolved. She hides the secret for years. Choi and Kim in an interesting way exploited these flaws to create a maze. Then, his theatrical mannerisms make him seem more like someone with Multiple Personality Disorder than a mere Jekyll-and-Hyde, as his wife describes him at one point. I thought everyone precisely fitted their character. Waltz entertains us, and we are conscious that we are seeing a bravura performance, but we are not getting the human being named Walter Keane. It would be easy to play Margaret as a victim, but Adams finds the bitter strength in someone who must endure untold torment in a world and home that constantly remind her she's too weak to succeed on her own.
She creates the paintings for him. When she outs her husband in the national news, her daughter is proud. Rookie Detective Ha Yoon Ju becomes the newest member of a unit within the Korean Police Forces Special Crime Department that specializes in surveillance activities on high profile criminals. On the evidence of Big Eyes, there's hope yet for Burton if he would like to switch to making more literal films. But, for the most part, Burton keeps himself out of the proceedings. In the end, the heroine is not a sympathetic character. Although he is presented as a strong-willed character, she does not have the guts to tell him to stop.
Amy Adams is appropriately choked up and tremulous as Margaret but Christoph Waltz is an odd choice for Walter. It's proof that he can create nightmares on a more subtle and realistic level, capturing the darker side of life as it can be rather than as he imagines it. Ha Yoon-Joo thanks to her intelligence, ambition and enthusiasm, quickly gains the trust of the whole team. For this solid work is responsible pair of directors, debuting Kim Byung-Seo and more experienced Choi Ui-Seok he also wrote script for the movie and previously directed two movies, Make it Big 2002 and The World of Silence 2006. Would never want to see this movie again.
Each member of the team has a nickname Snake, Squirrel, Monkey, etc. Overall nice little sentimental film from Tim it's different yet that's what makes a director and a film work that's a different take that appeals to the big eyes of viewers! A young, slightly neurotic cop Ha Yoon-Joo Han Hyo-Joo has a rare 3D photographic memory. And success and fame and public notice comes from the couples paintings only the Mr. The film also draws a canny, subtle distinction between the artist and the businessman: Walter may not be much of the former, but his skills as the latter are what drag Margaret's work from county fairs onto the international stage. This comes through pretty well in the film, which paints a chilling picture of Margaret's enforced anonymity. But the film also stumbles along at points, bled dry when it should radiate colour and emotion.
The music helps a lot to build up some tension, and I recommend this movie to anyone who likes action, a good story, suspense and tension! Set in the 1950's California Margaret Keane Amy Adams is a single mother who decides to set out on her own as her talents of the brush and drawing is her only hope to earn her bucks for her and her daughter. The shy, self-effacing art school graduate Margaret Ulbrich specialized in painting portraits of children with big, sad eyes which she would sell at street fairs for pocket change. Unfortunately, they will face with the villain other than any they so far had to deal with. The film leaves a touching, but light impression, much like the big-eyed paintings at its center. They story is not anything new, but I loved the way the executed this movie, and it really stands out.
