Last night, I finally watched M. Night Shyamalan’s last movie “Lady In The Water“, featuring Paul Giamatti, Bryce Dallas Howard and M. Night Shyamalan himself.
The reviews I read after the movie’s release were pretty mixed, and even a friend who saw it last week told me that it was so-so, but personally, I really really liked it.
The movie is about a depressed apartment superintendent who discovers a narf, a sea-nymph out of a bedtime story, who may hold the key to humanity’s hopeful future.
What I really liked about the movie is that it talks to the inner child in every one of us, taking us back to that world of fairy tales that we’ve been disconnected from for so long.
People don’t write fairy tales like they used to anymore, stories that used to inspire us as children, and that filled us with thoughts and lessons we carry with us to this very day; M. Night Shyamalan was successful in creating a new fairy tale of his own, and putting it onto film for the whole world to enjoy.
The movie also confirms how great an actor Paul Giamatti is; he did a great job here again.
I really recommend this movie to everyone who is into this genre of movies and who still has a connection with the inner child within them.
My score for this movie would be: 8/10.
