Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind Leaves You Smiling
Michel Gondry’s new film, Be Kind Rewind is an epic life-affirming movie and this trademark Gondry film, whimsical, kind-hearted but, thankfully, better focused than his last feature, The Science Of Sleep.
"The action centres around Danny Glover’s titular video shop, supposedly also the birthplace of the legendary Fats Waller. Glover goes off to a Waller tribute weekend leaving the shop in the hands of Mike (Mos Def). Mike’s best friend, Jerry, played by Jack Black, for reasons too complicated to go into here, manages to get himself magnetised and acidentally wipes all the videos in the shop. There’s only one thing for it – Mike and Jerry will have to re-create the movies themselves (or ‘Swede’ them as it’s termed in the film), starting with their own, unique, take on Ghostbusters"
