Napoleon Dynamite

£3.99

Product description

Set in Idaho (or was it Utah?), this film mainly revolves around four socially awkward characters and their daily life. Mostly this film is about socially awkward situations, but the few actual gags this film has come entirely unexpected and have you burst out laughing when you were completely quiet just a moment ago. Those people who already see the complete loser and social outcast in Napoleon will be sniggering throughout the film. On the other hand, those that do sympathize with him, or even are reminded of their own high school years, are equally entertained, albeit in a different way - they find Napoleon interesting, intriguing, and try to 'figure him out' - although that is almost impossible. Everything about this film is bathed in a surreal atmosphere - it's hard to imagine that a town like the one portrayed in the film really exists, and that the characters portrayed therein are the actual sort of people you might meet in a small community in the American Midwest. In fact - when Uncle Rico mentions the year 1982, it did dawn on me that the entire film has an extreme 1980s feel to it - you can't shake it off. The cinematographers have done a fantastic job in this regard, as the film was shot in 2004. Hard to believe, isn't it?
Every once in a while a film comes along and surprises you. Surprises you in the sense that you go into watching it with very little expectations and then find it exceeds all of them.
Watch this film and vote pedro.
