The Painting (2001) Reviews

  • This movie is fantastic


    I was so grateful to be present at the Premiere of this movie in Kansas City. I went, thinking the worst that could happen was being bored for a couple of hours. Well, just the opposite happened. This movie was so outstanding, I was taken by surprise. It was so well done. This movie is both a chick flick and a guy flick, very rare now days. It pulls you into the movie, gently, sweetly inviting you into the character's lives. I fell so in love with the people in the movie, they were real, it showed them for the good and the weaknesses, but you cared for them as you would a dear friend or a relative. What happened to each of them deeply affected me as I came to care more and more deeply for them. The camera work was stunning too. It was like the camera was having a love affair with the actors, the sets and the surroundings. The movie would especially be powerful to those who were born in the late 1940's or early 1950's, so many events that were shown were events, I myself had lived through, which made them even more personal in nature. If anyone has been to Vietnam, I definitely recommend this movie. It is one of the few movies where Vietnam vets were really honored. I could not recommend this movie highly enough. I hope and pray everyone will get to see this movie. It is very real, very thought provoking, very deep, very good....

  • A beautiful movie that shows LOVE knows no color


    I think the movie was very beautiful. They both loved each other, and held onto that loved, and pursued it despite the odds that faced them both. It just goes to show that sometimes love CAN conquer all. I think he was a compassionate and remarkable man. It showed in his ability to love his wife, to stand up for his friends, his beliefs, and most importantly, his decision to give his life to save that little girl. It was sad that he died though. I always hold a special place in my heart for movies that try to portray love with no boundaries! I have been in interracial relationships, and i have a biracial child. I am open to love, no matter the race, because you never know who you will love until it happens to you. I think that is one of the main points this movie was trying to get across! Peace and Blessings

  • A touching and moving story of the power of love


    A marvelous testament to the human spirit. The story of a young man whose search for what matters most to him, and the lives that he touches along the way. Vivid performance all around. Clifton Davis and Heath Freeman stand out. Highly recommended.

  • Wholesome movie


    I had the pleasure to watch the movie with my family in a private cinema. While the acting is not the best, the movie does make up for it because it is a really good wholesome family movie. The era that the movie was set in must have been very turbulent yet the movie avoided the blood, gore and hatred but instead show the courage of the human spirit and the goodness in man kind. The human spirit is a wonderful thing and the sacrifice made by individuals are usually swept under the carpet for the sake of sensationalism. This movie reminds us of the sacrifice made by the different characters like the Jewish boy who died in the bomb, the main actor for the girl and others. There were also many caring characters which are real in my world. It will be good if families go out together to watch this movie so that apart from their bonding, they can stir up each other's spirit and be encouraged by values that is good. Love it. Oliver

  • A Beautiful Movie!


    When are people like jkdeboer (does that mean "the bore"? - it SHOULD!) going to sit back and enjoy a good story? And WHY, may I ask, have IMDb chosen to put THAT lousy comment on the movie's home page? Fortunately, I was somewhat surprised by ms DeBoer's comments and elected to read a few more rather than just take hers as typical! First of all, let's remember that this is NOT a star-studded movie spectacular. It is a fictitious story based around the popular urban myth about a rich man dying and his art collection being auctioned. If you haven't heard the story, I won't spoil the movie for you by telling it here. Mind you, if you have heard the story, then the end of the movie won't be any surprise either! But who cares? It is a nice wholesome movie and, as such, is pleasant entertainment. I could pick some holes in the acting (particularly Charles Shaughnessy's - he should have stuck to comedy!) but, again, what would that achieve? I guess there are those people in this world who simply enjoy rubbishing other people's efforts - although, I suspect if they had to make a movie themselves, they couldn't do nearly as well as those they tear apart! I have the movie on DVD and am happy to have it as part of my collection. So, people, if you have been put off by Miss DeBoer's irate rantings, just ignore them and watch The Painting anyway!
