Flora & Ulysses is one of those classic romantic films that every person (and I'm sure there were a few not-so-pyscho lovers) should see. The film is a great example of a movie made by masters at the art of movie making... whether it is the director, the writer or the star. What makes Flora & Ulysses even more special is that it doesn't try to reach for the stars in its story, instead concentrating on the simple elegance of the characters and the beauty of the scenery.
Directed by Wes Anderson (The Magnificent Seven), Flora & Ulysses follows the lives of two lovers whose romance is so strong, it reaches dimensions of epic proportions. When they meet at an art gallery during the evening of their engagement, both men find themselves lost in wonder at the beauty of the woman before their eyes. But this wonderful attraction is also what they believe will destroy their relationship, as their passionate, erotic attraction eventually transforms into hatred. Once the dust clears, however, both men find themselves deeply in love with this otherworldly girl.
A romantic comedy at heart, Flora & Ulysses is a film you shouldn't miss. If you have seen Anderson's previous work, you know he is a master at romantic comedy, having created such like comedies as Inception and Grand Budapest Hotel. This is no different; his sense of humor shines through in this movie. The storyline and acting are top notch, bringing out the best from both actors and actresses. No matter who is involved in the movie, you will be entertained.
In order to enjoy the quality of the movie, you will need to venture online and look for DVDs that are available to purchase. You will find many options to choose from when it comes to DVDs. Amazon is one of the most popular places online to buy DVDs. Not only is the selection wide but the prices are very reasonable. With a little bit of research, you should be able to find the exact DVD you are looking for... whether it is comedy drama, or romance. This makes the search for a good DVD online a breeze.
One of the funniest things you will see in the film is the transformation Ulysses' mother goes through after she realizes she wants to marry her son. This makes the character more entertaining and humanizing. Watching how she loses her confidence and outlook on life is entertaining to the extreme. It also adds a little bit of comedy to the story, which is always welcome when it comes to fiction.
Of course, nothing is quite as funny as the love between Ulysses and Flora, the only person he knows. This love story is one of the most well-written in film history. Anderson plays it brilliantly and brings it to life. You will love this movie... whether you have seen it or not! If you have not yet seen it, make sure to do so soon.
