Pile ofSeriously? Have we lost our sense of what is actually good writing or good filmmaking? I saw better art my toilet this morning..Score: 1/5

Awful to the Tenth Power!When describing a bad movie. many folks will exaggerate and say, "It was the worst movie I've ever seen." In my case, at age 56, this was truly the worst movie I have ever seen. And that includes documentary films from the 70s that I saw in high school biology class! Don't get me wrong, I love independent films. And I am the first to defend a simple plot or a plot saturated in obscure symbolism. But this film was like watching a car spin its wheels... lots of smoke but doesn't go anywhere. The only positive aspect of this film was the black and white filming was beautifully done..Score: 1/5

Absolutely awful and pointless.This has got to be one of the worse films I have ever seen. Just pointless and irritating. The positive comments by other reviewers completely escape me. Profound? Contemplative? Hardly. But truly a complete waste of one’s time. I had to stop watching. The most regrettable iTunes film purchase..Score: 1/5

Good MovieI really enjoyed the movie. The writting was clever and the characters likable. It had a meandering feel to it, but still had direction so it wasn't boring. If you've ever felt lost, and not sure of the next step in your life, and need a good laugh, this is a good movie to watch..Score: 4/5

GretaProfound, humorous and contemplative on emotions and human behavior. For me, Greta nailed the definition of love..Score: 5/5

Ugh...Okay, I get it. Rotten tomatoes is trying to be artsy by liking a film that is mind numbingly boring. There is some character development as Frances grows up and struggles to be on her own and her and her best friend grow apart. And I actually kinda liked the fact that it was shot in black and white. The acting was decent; however, I really didn't like this movie. I forced myself to watch it hoping that it would get better. I'll save you time. It doesn't. Frances is very immature, why are we celebrating this!!!???.Score: 2/5

Loved this movie!Movies with wonderful characters, movie with real heart--that, not CGI, is real movie magic..Score: 5/5

So boring and pointlessI wish I could get my time back from this movie, which is about a transplant living in NYC and just complaining and moaning about everything. Its not witty nor exciting, and no reason for it to be in black and white either. Don't waste you time on this movie..Score: 1/5

Français
À 27 ans, Frances mène une existence tranquille. Elle vit avec sa meilleure amie Sophie à New York et rêve d'être une célèbre danseuse moderne. Alors que la jeune femme a déjà obtenu son diplôme depuis un long moment, sa vie professionnelle stagne. Elle enchaîne les déceptions les unes après les autres. Mais une nouvelle bouscule sa routine. Sophie décide d'emménager avec une autre amie à Tribeca. Bientôt sans logement, Frances se retrouve aussi sans revenus, quand la directrice de sa compagnie de danse lui annonce qu'elle ne peut plus la garder. Imaginative, Frances s'installe chez Lev et Benji, des amis de Sophie. Pour Noël, elle rentre chez ses parents, à Sacramento...

Deutsch
Frances ist 27 und vollauf damit beschäftigt, ihre Karriere als Tänzerin immer wieder neu zu erfinden. Wie viele ihrer Generation der Endzwanziger will sie alles ausprobieren, erreicht dabei aber nur wenig. Ihr größter Erfolg ist die Freundschaft mit der mürrischen und scharfzüngigen Sophie, mit der sie ihre Tage in New York verbringt: "wie ein lesbisches Paar, das keinen Sex mehr hat". Eine aufkeimende Romanze zu einem ihrer Freunde endet im Nirgendwo.

Português
Frances (Greta Gerwig) divide um apartamento em Nova York com Sophie (Mickey Sumner), sua melhor amiga. Brincalhona e com ar de quem não deseja crescer, ela recusa o convite do namorado para que more com ele justamente para não deixar Sophie sozinha. Entretanto, a amiga não toma a mesma atitude quando surge a oportunidade de se mudar para um apartamento melhor localizado, mesmo que isto signifique que ela e Frances passem a morar em locais diferentes. A partir de então tem início a peregrinação de Frances em busca de um novo lugar que se adeque às suas finanças, já que ela é apenas aluna em uma companhia de dança à espera de uma chance de integrar o grupo de bailarinos que encenará o espetáculo de Natal. Mesmo diante das dificuldades, Frances tenta manter o alto astral diante os problemas que a vida adulta traz.

Vive con su amiga Sophie, y disfruta de la vida con alegría y despreocupaciones. Una fábula moderna de Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, Greenberg) sobre la juventud, la amistad, la ambición, el fracaso y la redención. (FILMAFFINITY)

Polski
Frances ma 27 lat i mieszka w Nowym Jorku. Każdy nowy dzień, to dla niej nowy pomysł na przyszłość. Nie brakuje jej optymizmu, ale życie lubi brutalnie weryfikować jej plany i marzenia... Nieustannie goni za szczęściem, choć sama nie umiałaby go w odpowiedni sposób nazwać, czy zmaterializować. Rozstanie z bliską przyjaciółką, niemożność spełniania życiowej pasji i pierwsze, tak bardzo nieidealne zauroczenie. Czy na końcu długiej i niełatwej drogi czeka spełnienie?

Nederlands
De ambitieuze danseres Frances verhuist naar New York City. Ze wil meer uit het leven halen dan dat ze krijgt, maar leeft tegelijkertijd luchtig en vervuld van plezier. Ze raakt verwikkeld in een wervelwind van vluchtige en oppervlakkige vrienden, afnemende kansen op geluk en professionele tegenslagen.

Italiano
Frances vive a New York ma non ha un vero appartamento, è un'aspirante ballerina ma non fa veramente parte della compagnia con cui danza. La sua migliore amica, Sophie, è per lei un'altra se stessa "con capelli differenti", ma quando Sophie conosce Patch e si trasferisce da lui, Frances deve imparare a badare se stessa da sola.

A 27 éves Frances (Greta Gerwig - Rómának szeretettel, Csak szexre kellesz, Arthur, a legjobb parti) gyakornok egy tánctársulatnál. A New York-i fiatalok problémákkal teli hétköznapjait éli, nap mint nap fontos kérdésekkel szembesülve: az álmait kövesse vagy inkább keményen dolgozzon a jövőjéért? Költözzön albérletbe vagy a barátainál lébecoljon tovább? És mi a helyzet a legjobb barátnőjével, illetve a nagy szerelemmel? Frances mindenekelőtt a boldogságot keresi, amiért képes meglehetősen váratlan és mindenekelőtt felelőtlen döntéseket hozni - például azt, hogy átruccanjon Párizsba.

У Фрэнсис есть лучшая подруга Софи, но теперь они почти не общаются, если честно. Фрэнсис живет своими мечтами, которые с каждым днем становятся все более несбыточными. Фрэнсис хочет намного больше, чем может себе позволить, но она все равно проживает жизнь с легкостью, беспечностью и изяществом.

Frances New York’ta yaşamaktadır ama aslında kendisine ait bir dairesi yoktur. Frances dans topluluğunda acemidir. Ama gerçek bir dansçı değildir. Frances’ın Sophie isimli bir arkadaşı vardır ama artık birbirleriyle konuşmamaktadır. Frances’in hayattan beklediği ve istediği çok şey vardır.

български език
Грета Геруик изпълнява главната роля в комедийната лента на сценарист-режисьора Ноа Баумбак, която разглежда теми като младостта, приятелството, любовта, амбициите, провалите и изкуплението. Геруик се превъплъщава в образа на начинаещата танцьорка Франсис, която иска да постигне много повече в живота си. Въпреки че не всичко протича според очакванията й тя е винаги усмихната и се старае да се фокусира върху положителните неща от ежедневието.

Dansk
Frances: En frisk pige på 27 som lever med sin bedste veninde, Sophie, i New York. Hendes drøm er en karriere som danser, men skuffelserne banker hele tiden på døren og kærlighedslivet er også noget, der befinder sig et sted nær Mars. Da Sophie uden varsel flytter ud er Frances pludselig hjemløs. En romance går som vanligt skævt og det samme kan man vist også roligt sige om en tur til over atlanten til Paris.

The Squid and the Whale -komediastaan tunnetun Noah Baumbachin uusin elokuva Frances Ha vie suoraan Girls-sarjan ja Woody Allenin tuntemaan hurmaavan hauskaan New Yorkiin. Elokuvan 27 vuotiaana nimihenkilönä, alati itseään etsivänä modernina tanssijana ja unelmoijana lumoaa Greta Gerwig. Frances Ha on parikymppinen tyhjäntoimittaja ja tyhjätasku, joka elää New Yorkissa parhaan ystävänsä Sophien (Stingin tytär Mickey Sumner) kanssa. Kun Sophie yllättäen haluaakin muuttaa poikaystävänsä kanssa yhteen, ei Frances tiedä mitä tehdä. Pitäisikö hänen itsenäistyä ja aikuistua, etenkin kun jopa nuoremmat alkavat tuntua häntä kypsemmiltä? Mukaansatempaava matka itsensä löytämiseen vie Francesin New Yorkin lisäksi Pariisiin. Frances Han muissa sivurooleissa nähdään muun muassa Girls-sarjassa Lena Dunhamin sydämen vienyt omaperäinen Adam Driver.

V prostoru mezi díly Erica Rohmera a Woodyho Allena rýsuje newyorský nezávislý režisér Noah Baumbach křehký černobílý příběh neukotvené hrdinky, které nechybí chuť do života ani strhující spontaneita.

While We’re Young summary, synopsis, reviews
While We’re YoungComedy2015

Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are Josh and Cornelia Srebnick, happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class. They tried to start a family and were unable to — and have decided they’re okay with that. But as Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it’s plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion — retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next. For Josh, it’s as if a door has opened back to his youth — or a youth he wishes he once had. It’s not long before the restless forty-somethings, Josh and Cornelia, throw aside friends their own age — including Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz in a sly supporting role — to trail after these young hipsters who seem so plugged in, so uninhibited, so Brooklyn cool. “Before we met,” Josh admits to Jamie, “the only two feelings I had left were wistful and disdainful.” But is this new inspiration enough to sustain collaboration and friendship with a couple twenty years their junior? While We’re Young is an openly funny cross-generational comedy of manners about aging, ambition and success, as well as a moving portrait of a marriage tested by the invading forces of youth. No film has better captured the weird, upended logic of urban sophisticates: the older ones embracing their iPads and Netflix, the young ones craving vinyl records and vintage VHS tapes. Powered by Stiller and Driver's note-perfect lead performances and loose, comic turns by Watts and Seyfried, While We’re Young is a complete pleasure to watch.

The Life Aquatic With Steve ZissouComedy2004

Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) and his crew -- Team Zissou -- set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly nonexistent Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou's partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure. They are joined on their voyage by a young airline co-pilot, who may or may not be Zissou's son (Owen Wilson), a beautiful journalist (Cate Blanchett) assigned to write a profile of Zissou, and his estranged wife and co-producer, Eleanor (Anjelica Huston). They face overwhelming complications including pirates, kidnapping, and bankruptcy. Oscar(R)-nominated writer-director Wes Anderson (2001 Best Original Screenplay, The Royal Tenenbaums) has assembled an all-star cast that also includes Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Gambon, Noah Taylor, and Bud Cort in this wildly original adventure-comedy.

From director Joe Swanberg (HANNAH TAKES THE STAIRS) and producer Noah Baumbach. In Swanberg's own words: "The film's main theme of commitment, as that relates to marriage and art, is very personal to me. I am married and I am an artist, and it is a constant struggle to be true to both commitments, especially when they sometimes seem at odds with each other. I hope it is clear from the work that I believe the commitment is worth the struggle."
