Harvest Reviews

  • Apr 02, 2013

    Tuesday, April 2, 2013 (2011) Harvest DRAMA Independent film written and directed by Marc Meyers centering on teen visiting his grandfather and putting all his goals/ love life on hold for the purpose of spending time with his grandfathers last remaining days which involve many pointless babblings. Watch "Rocket Gibraltar" instead, or any Ingmar Bergman or Kurosawa film for that matter because this one hasn't a single ounce of authenticity in terms of the dialogue. Obvious influence from David O' Russell's "The Fighter" because of the technique of hand held style and improvisational dialogue. 1 out of 4

    Good story about life lessons and interesting characters with some decent depth, but the poor writing of the incidental lines throughout the film hurt it.

    Could have been a lot better if less leisurely in the first 2/3.

    Extremely slow moving and poor character developments. Common story and common ending to the ever typical acceptance of who I am via a love interest....

    It's a movie about a life, and life can be kinda funny and kinda poignant, even when it's full of ordinary things, like age, sickness and loss. A very very good independent film,Films like these need more recognition,SEE IT!!!

    Great cast explores a family that comes together around its dying patriarch, wonderfully played by Robert Loggia.

    This thoughtful, carefully scripted film treats the difficult and sensitive issues of illness, and being a caregiver.... and of course love and loss, life and death. Robert Loggia and Barbara Barrie truly shine in nuanced performances, although the entire cast does a beautiful job. Marc Meyers direction is perfect. Bravo to all!

    It's safe to say that 'Harvest' is a modest film, but those are often the ones that pull on our emotions the most.
