Milenci a vrazi #

Released 12/9/2004

Description: Lovers & Murderers is about the ongoing fight between those who have and those who wish to have what the others have. The have-nots see themselves as terrible victims trying to receive for themselves what is justly theirs.

The film takes zone in the microcosm of a tiny apartment building. The principal target of the young folks who share rooms in the building is to transport into their own room and, some day, a true apartment. They scheme to receive what they're after: form short-lived alliances, petition, frighten, marry, become pregnant, anything that might work. Lovers & Murderers presents Páral's vision of mankind caught in a cyclical process in which ideology pales before the pettiness, cruelty, and self-justification of human nature.

Gigot Reviews:

Gleason was at his greatest in this drama. Never before or since have I found a film so charming and well done. Virtually "talk free" I was captivated by Gleasons' portrayal. No another actor comes close to his caliber.


if this film isn't a 10, then there isn't a 10 anywhere. jackie gleason plays this hero so beautifully, juxtaposed vs the ruthless street-walking mother of the sweet young nicole. also the settings present a dichotomy of hero with his poor-man surroundings, and the rich-man zone he takes himself to........all the impress collette so that he can spend time with young nicole.gleason was nominated for an academy award for his portrayal of gigot, but was lost in a very powerful cadre of contenders.does anyone know why this movie has not been released on VHS or DVD? certainly it would sell. this movie is a keeper. i watch hundreds of films but refuse to purchase only the absolute best. want i should purchase gigot.


This splendid movie is a lost masterpiece. Most everyone I talk to that has seen it, saw it on a local tv matinée. So far as I can say it is not accessible on video. This unbelievable movie has fallen between the cracks somehow but the discovery of it only adds to it's charm. Like a rare natural wonder hidden far off the beaten path some afternoon, you may be trudging through your day and stumble onto this film, a pretty sentimental picture. If you like Capra, you will love Gigot. Not for the dark of heart or impatient, this movie will transport you to tears. It has the feel of a tiny foreign film, but has the heart as large as any movie ever made. Directed by Gene Kelly, the set's are wonderful, the acting subtle and superb, the melody excellent and most necessary of all "The Nice One" Jackie Gleason's performance as the mute Gigot has a depth and pathos that several actors have ever achieved. I wonder if John Candy wasn't partially reflecting on 'Gigot' when he played his Del Griffeth hero in 'Planes, Trains...' There is something behind these actors performances that should not have been acting. Like Buster Keaton, one gets the sense that deep down, the hero is a reflection of the pain the actor truly feels. Check your local listings to see if this is testing and record it. A 10 out of 10.
